This is a story about why we chose to love the ones we love, and why we just can't forget the ones who aren't right for us.

"Giffin's snappy prose makes Ellen's dilemma compelling, once again proving she's at the top of the chick-lit pack." (Booklist)
I loved Emily's first 2 books, Something Borrowed and the 2nd Something Blue. I found this book overly predicatable, but I really did have a feeling of loving or hating each Character.
The book was good I would recommand it to people who liked her first 2 books.
I started to get a little tired of the typical titilating affair at the beginning of the story, but was totally satisfied with the reasons for the telling of the tale by the end!
I am usually such a fan of stories of Unrequited Love but I found this book to be a tad bit annoying....
I just wanted to take the lead character and shake her and say, "well you did this to yourself"
All she did was be winey and played the victim in this story.
I loved all of the other books by by this author, but this one, not so much.
I just moved from Chicago to Atlanta so I could relate to this story a bit! Good chick lit book. Quick!
I completely agree with the previous post. I really like this author, but I kept finding myself wanting at just scream at Ellen for her wishy washy, bring-it-all-on-yourself and whine about it behavior. But on the upside, I would say it's good for a light summer book.
Just perfect timing!
I believe I could compare it to E.G. Something Borrowed because it kind of has the same topic behind it: in relationships, timing is really important and could change the future.
I think she captures the confusion and innocence of the main character. I believe the way she reads and her voice help the listener get into her feelings. I could almost imagine the whole body language just from the way she reads something the character is saying.
Yes! I almost did, actually. I guess it had to do with the fact I could empathize so well with the main character and what she was going through!
Highly recommend to those who are superficially confused about marriage and want to listen a different experience.
I have both read and listened to this book. It was enjoyable both ways. I love all of Emily Giffin's books. "Love the one you're with" is especially enjoyable as it takes the readers through realistic emotional ups and downs of being happy where you are and making hard choices about commitment, loyalty, and love.
