Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff
They start out as young and in love, but also broke and cut off from Lotto's family and their money. He is a struggling actor until Mathilde encourages him to write plays, and she is the one who gets the first one produced, and then he is off to success. The rest of the book is the juxtaposition of Lotto's view of the relationship with Mathilde's, and the inevitable differences therein. It is an interesting read, one that makes one reflect on one's own love life.
