Publisher's Summary

Ellen's relationship to Andy doesn't just seem perfect on the surface; it really is perfect. She loves his family and everything about him, including that he brings out the best in her. That is, until Ellen unexpectedly runs into Leo. The one who got away. The one who brought out the worst in her. The one she can't forget.

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.

Critic Reviews

"Giffin's snappy prose makes Ellen's dilemma compelling, once again proving she's at the top of the chick-lit pack." (Booklist)

Loved her first book

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.

Elightening for married couples

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!

winey story

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.

Ok

Ok, it was a good read. Sometimes I felt me drifting away from the story but soon after it reeled me back in and in the end I did enjoy the story.

Good Book

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>

Very annoying lead character

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.

Not compelling, predictable and unlikeable characters

The story was a bore. The lead character is not very interesting or likable. The conflict is a stretch, weak and easily avoidable.

Is It Ever That Easy?

Great book and easy to listen to on Audible. Pulled at my heart as Ellen faces all the choices before her.
