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.
This book was good but this authors other books were better. Protagonist was hard to like I thought she was spoiled and ungrateful. But good book>
I just moved from Chicago to Atlanta so I could relate to this story a bit! Good chick lit book. Quick!
I was introduced to emily giffen through something borrowed, something blue. This book was not as good as the others, but it was worth listening to. The narrarator did a good job and i was not bored once. Worth buying.
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.
I like the way the book was narrated and I felt every dilemma and emotion that Ellen felt in the story.
The entire story may have struck a familiar feeling in me that got me really hooked :)
My favorite scene was towards the end, when Andy arrived while Ellen is hailing a cab in front of their old NY apartment. For me - it speaks about what "real" love is, always having room to forgive and understand one another even when faced with our own weakness.
Yup, and a book I wouldn't mind reading over and over again :)
