Love the One You're With by Emily Griffin


Synopsis: Ellen and Andy’s first year of marriage doesn’t just seem perfect, it is perfect. There is no question how deep their devotion is, and how naturally they bring out the best in each other. But one fateful afternoon, Ellen runs into Leo for the first time in eight years. Leo, the one who brought out the worst in her. Leo, the one who left her heartbroken with no explanation. Leo, the one she could never quite forget. When his reappearance ignites long-dormant emotions, Ellen begins to question whether the life she’s living is the one she’s meant to live. At once heartbreaking and funny, Love the One You’re With is a tale of lost loves and found fortunes—and will resonate with anyone who has ever wondered what if.



One (or more) Sentence Summary: While I was hoping Ellen would realize what she had with Andy ( I really liked him - he was the safe choice).going through her "what ifs" made for a very entertaining story.  The twist/secret that Margot kept, I never saw coming.  

Favorite Character(s):  Ellen.with the road(s) she was traveling down is one that is faced by many (both women and men). 

Fast read/slow read:  I listened to Love the One You're With and enjoyed it.  

Cover:  Cute, LOVE the daisy!

What Others Are Saying:  "Giffin's talent lies in taking relatable situations and injecting with enough wit and suspense to make them feel fresh. The cat-and-mouse game between Ellen and Leo lights up these pages, their flirtation as dangerously addictive as a high-speed car chase. The ending isn't explosive, but what Ellen learns is quietly thrilling: Sometimes, you have to do whatever it taks to be with the one you love." --People
 
"Though it's easy to resent [Ellen] for taking [her] ideal life for granted, Giffin's vivid depictions of Ellen's steamy past with Leo help you commiserate with this realistically insecure woman." --Entertainment Weekly
