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.

©2008 Emily Giffin (P)2008 Macmillan Audio

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.

Emily Giffin is always a favorite!

I have read and listened to this book numerous times, and it is like spending time with dear old friends. Emily Giffin’s characters are so well drawn. While the plot is always interesting, it seems to take a back seat to character development. This is probably my second favorite of her novels. The way she portrays the relationships of her characters draws you in and you find yourself relating to them. I highly recommend this book.

Don’t waste your time

I was looking for a fun low key listen, but this just made me feel irritated and annoyed. There was no real story, the characters had less than zero depth, and none of them were likable. Laziness on every front.
