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.

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.

Good story, good romance

What made the experience of listening to Love the One You're With the most enjoyable?

I loved all the story, but there's no much romance or drama scenes that could make me more interested in main character's conflicts. I thought everything too light.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Andy, because he would deserve more attention in this story. He could be a bad guy or somebody who doesn't accept his partner's choices. Otherwise, Leo could be that villain. I think he could surprise us. But Andy is my favorite, sadly he is not so important.

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

Her voice is incredible! I stuck with every word, she made an amazing job. It's just another experience when we listen to the story.

If you could take any character from Love the One You're With out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I think the main character has some problems so I would like to talk with her. She made me anxious.

overall- great read.

The title of the book does give away the story but as far as the performance, I thought it was great.

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.
