Publisher's Summary

Everyone has one. An ex you still think about. The one who makes you ask, 'What if?'

Fifteen years have passed since Stella and George last saw each other. But something makes Stella click 'yes' to the invite to her school reunion.

There's still a spark between them, and although their relationship ended badly, they begin an affair.

But once someone gets you back, sometimes they're never going to let you go again....

Dreadful

Utterly unbelievable I tried to stick with it but just couldn’t believe in the two main characters who were supposed to be intelligent and successful- Stella was a psycho and George was an idiot.

Extremely boring

This book bored me to tears. There is no excitement whatsoever. I was constantly waiting for something interesting to happen. My advice: don’t waste your time, money or credit. I couldn’t get on with the narrators either. I had to return this book!

Very good

Well written and presented. Perhaps a little predictable toward the end but definitely worth a read

who what where why?!

I started this book tithing for Stella.. Then I felt sorry for Ness.. at points I thought George for his just desserts.. but then the tables turned and I was tithing for anyone other than Stella!! really good.. but the ending is a bit lane... unless there's a sequel. Georges part was read really well.. Stella's was a bit stained and awkward. But otherwise.. I couldn't wait to see what was next!

Very disappointed -

Twists and turns, at times captivating! But the ending in my opinion was unrealistic and left me feeling short changed. The narration not so good either as every character has the same high pitched accent, even the men.
