Love the One You're With

I enjoy Emily Griffin's writing but the ending of Love the One You're With drove me nuts.  Someone on Amazon said that this book should be called "Settling".  I would agree.  The only character I liked was Leo.  Ellen's husband Andy was boring and plain and I had no interest in his character.  Ellen is clearly still in love with Leo and thinks about him more than she thinks about her own husband.  She calls her relationship with Andy safe.  Who cares about passion when you have safe.  Obviously I'm team Leo.

Still better than most chick lit out there.  I enjoyed Emily Griffin's other books better especially Something Borrowed.

  1. I have to be in a particular mood for chick lit, but I've never read any of her books. Roxanne and Penny are fans, though, so I trust them and you. :)

  2. I'm usually more in the mood in summer for chick lit.

  3. I want to read some of her books. I have a friend who does and loves them. The only problem is I keep forgetting I want to read until someone brings it up. -- This one sounds depressing though :(
