Publisher's Summary

Rachel has always been a good girl--until her 30th birthday, when her best friend Darcy throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy's fiancé Dex. Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for Dex. She prays for fate to intervene, but when she makes a choice she discovers that the lines between right and wrong are blurry, endings aren't always neat, and you have to risk all to win true happiness.

    "light and harty"

    This novel was a refreshingly light novel. The characters were well developed and the issues presented in the story line were very realistic. I enjoyed every minute of this listen and felt as though I were watching a scandalous lifetime movie. Whenever I stopped the audiobook I looked forward to the next time I would have to pick it up.

    "Engaging."

    Such an engaging story. Completely enthralled. Movie was ok despite being well cast. Book is much better.

    "It was okay"

    I enjoyed the narrator, but the story was just okay for me. I appreciated the fact that the book didn't rely solely on bedroom scenes to propel the story forward.

    "Outstanding, entertaining, story!"

    Once I started listening to this tale I was scarcely willing to stop- even for work. The narrator's skillful rendition makes the story all the better. This is one of those great stories that forces self-reflection and grants its readers a willingness to refrain from judging the "perceived" indiscretions of others. I ABSOLUTELY loved this story and not just because of the satisfying ending.

    "SOBO"

    This book is a favorite of mine. Rachel is a fascinatingly flawed character. I enjoyed listening to her story.

    "Love this story and the narrator nailed it!"

    I read this a long time ago (way before the movie ruined it). The narrator is incredible nailing all the characters and inflections. In would highly recommend!

    "Awesome book"

    I've read this book many times and then got the audio version because I wanted to hear it on a road trip. I thought the narration was good, though I really didn't like how pathetic the main character sounded. She didn't sound that bad in my head. Other than that, great book written by a great author and a great story that isn't exactly black and white. I would definitely recommend it.

    Story
    "Narrator ruined it for me"
    Would you try another book from Emily Giffin and/or Jennifer Wiltsie?

    I listened to something blue first and loved it . I probably would've liked this one too if another narrator read it. It got on my nerves so bad I had to stop listening


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Something Borrowed?

    The storyline in the movie made Rachel more likable .. She is not In the book


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Wiltsie?

    Julia whelen or Becca battoe


    Do you think Something Borrowed needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It has one


    Any additional comments?

    No

    Story
    "If you like weak minded heroines then is for you."
    What did you like best about Something Borrowed? What did you like least?

    I liked that Rachel finally took a stand for herself, but I didn't like how weak she was really throughout the entire book. She's an intelligent and accomplished woman, but all she seems to think about is her best friend being a bitch to her since they met and her yearning for her fiance. I understand it's difficult to stand up against your friends especially when you're so used to their behavior, but in my opinion I don't like that she went behind her back and continued the affair. I think she should have been upfront with Dax from the beginning instead of allowing herself to be his mistress until he decided it was time. I thought this would be a cute romantic dramedy, but it just annoyed me, I'm glad I held off on purchasing the sequel.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Game of Thrones book 2


    What does Jennifer Wiltsie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think she did a great job of conveying the emotions of the characters.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I actually so the movie first, but never saw the last 20 minutes so I figured it would be nice to read the book since I liked the film...I was wrong. The movie changed a lot, but I'm glad that it cut Rachel and Dax's relationship to only a few stolen moments, but I didn't like how they changed the Ethan and Rachel's relationship and cut out Hillary.


    Any additional comments?

    Honestly I don't know what woman would read this and think it's so amazing. Emily Griffin is a good writer, but if her female characters are all like Rachel I'd prefer to steer clear.
