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.

    "Underwhelming"

    I can't believe I listened to this entire story waiting for it to get better. The Darcy character was too extreme, I grew entirely exhausted of hearing the name in the text over and over. Ridiculous is the word that comes to mind when describing the plot, Rachel is a sniveling second bester, Dex is too flawless, Ethan too supportive. It's so unrealistic it's unbearable.

    "Something Better..."

    I liked the narrator and the story was good but it just didn't sit well with me. The story is very hard to believe and I hated Dex. He was scumb and trying to make it all work in the end left me feeling kind of sick. I was expecting something better. (I gave it 3 stars because the narrator is so good.)

    "Loved it!"

    I think the narrator did a great job and I found myself invested in the story. I would recommend the book to anyone.

    "Excellent"

    This audio book is great: I wanted to read the book prior to watching the movie; now I can't wait to see the movie to see if it does the book any justice

    "super slow"

    This has to be one of the worst books I've listened to. It moved so slow - it was all I could do to make it to the end. In fact I ended up skipping large chunks just to get to the end hoping that the ending would make it all worth while... that wasn't the case. I got really tired of the main character whining and rationalizing her life as a door mat and a cheater. Its written as a long winded monolog in her head - which is not an interesting place to be.

    "High Strung"

    I had a hard time identifying with the chaaracters. They were young, self-centered, socialites in NY. I dind't hate it but it wasn't one of my favorites.

    "Great book!"

    I loved this book! I cannot wait to read Darcy's version in Something Blue even though I am not a big fan of her character. This was a great chick lit and made working out a lot more easier since I had to finish this book! I wish something blue was not an abridged version! I highly recommend this book!

    "Jennifer Wiltsie's voice made me stop listening"

    When I decide to listen to a book I want to get to know the characters. It is so frustrating if the narration isn't well done. I'm shocked anyone could get thru this book due to this alone. Too bad, great story but the high pitched, screechy, whiny voice of main character made me turn it off. I never prefer a movie over a book except with this since I didn't get to listen to book. Waste of money for me. I like Emily Giffin as an author, simple stories, easy reads that flow well.

    "Great Listen!!"

    I loved this book!! Really!!! I have listened the Love the One Your With by the same author. That book would sometimes go on and on. I was afraid this one would too. But no, the author kept you entertained. It really took a long time to decide if this was something I wanted to listen to because of the subject matter- people cheating. I am not into cheating, but this was from a different point of view. This book was really entertaining. I normally listen to chick lit- faves are Stackhouse stories, Twilight, and Sophie Kinsella. So- if that's your style, you may like this too!! I hope so. I am now going to listen to the follow up story just to see what happens next.

    "Simple but entertaining"

    It's a nice easy listen. If you are in the mood for something mindless, this is a great listen.
