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.

    "Giffin does it again"

    I don't know what it is about Emily Giffin's books, but I am always hooked from the first minute. Maybe because she includes references to Andy Gibb, the Brady bunch, or any one of a million things I remember from my youth? Or maybe it is just a good story, interesting characters? While I know it is "chick lit", it is a cut above the rest of the genre. Good narration, too.

    "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.

    "loved it!"

    I think I loved the book better than the movie. The book gave me the filler that I needed. The narrator did an excellent job! I was totally engulfed in the story.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.
