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

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.

Simple yet intriguing

I really enjoy the complexity and unconventionality that Emily Giffin brings to the characters in her novels. She's not afraid to explore through the layers of relationships. Love the One You're With is one of those stories that challenges you to view things from a different perspective. Most of her novels are not about plot, more so, character development. So, if you're into plot, I wouldn't recommend this book. But if you're fascinated by character development, then I say, give this book (and all her books) a read or listen.

B.O.R.I.N.G

Have you ever loved a bad boy who can't commit, got dumped by him, fell in love with and married the perfect with the perfect family, but miss and want to bad boy anyway? Then you will LOVE this book and give it 4 or 5 stars.
Me, not only did I not relate to the main character, I found all the characters too one dimensional. I didn't like them, much less love them. I listened while driving a long trip thinking it would keep me alert. Mistake! I found I kept daydreaming. And getting sleepy. And it wss only 8 pm. I finally had to pull over to a McDonald's and take a nap in my car, it was that boring.
But I adore the writer herself, and all of her other books. The prose is wonderful. Otherwise, I'd have given it 1 star.
