Chris Perez tells the story of his relationship with music superstar Selena in this heartfelt tribute.

One of the most compelling and adored superstars in Latin music history, Selena was nothing short of a phenomenon who shared all of herself with her millions of devoted fans. Her tragic murder, at the young age of twenty-three, stripped the world of her talent and boundless potential, her tightly knit family of their beloved angel, and her husband, Chris Perez, of the greatest love he had ever known.

For over a decade, Chris held on to the only personal thing he had left from his late wife: the touching and sometimes painful memories of their very private bond. Now, for the first time, Chris opens up about their unbreakable friendship, forbidden relationship, and blossoming marriage, which were cut short by Selena’s unforgivable death.

Chris’s powerful story gives a rare glimpse into Selena’s sincerity and vulnerability when falling in love, strength and conviction when fighting for that love, and absolute resilience when finding peace and normalcy with her family’s acceptance of the only man she called her husband. While showcasing a side of Selena that has never been disclosed before and clarifying certain misconceptions about her life and death, To Selena, with Love is an everlasting love story that immortalizes the heart and soul of an extraordinary, unforgettable, and irreplaceable icon.

    I loved reading this so much! The show on Netflix was definitely inspired by Chris’s book. Thank you so much Chris for being so vulnerable and writing this for not just yourself but for Selena and her fans, your fans as well. We love you Selena forever. May her spirit live on through her amazing music and fans.

    I cried many times throughout reading this book. Chris Perez is so heartfelt and genuine you can feel his emotions stream through as he describes intimate moments with his wife and legendary superstar Selena. I’m so glad I bought this book as I was hesitant and didn’t think I could learn anything new about the beloved Selena. Chris shared thoughtful moments and provided insights into his marriage like I’ve never heard before. I was captivated from beginning to end and read the entire book in about three days but, it only took that long because I had to keep up my normal daily routine. You know those pesky habits like work and cleaning. Thank you Chris Perez for such an amazing book!
