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 the story about why we choose to love the ones we love, and why we just can't forget the ones who aren't right for us. Emily Giffin brings both humor and heart to her novels and has an uncanny ability to tap into the things women are really thinking and feeling. WithLove the One You're With, she proves, once again, why she is the fastest rising star of women's fiction writing today.

I loved this novel. It really truly makes you appreciate the one you're with especially when you need reassurance. Five stars!

The thing I like about Emily Giffin is that she doesn't talk down to her readers. Nor does she assume that everyone who wants to read a light, fun, chick book gives two hoots about what brand of clothing the heroine wears. Her books aren't cerebral by any means, but they're smart.

I'm not a big fiction reader, but when it's about "the one who got away" how can I resist? A lot of this book flies right by me as pure fluff, but some of it just rings so true when Emily compares her easy, sweet smelling husband to the more musky, mysterious ex and all that his allure conjures up for her--and me!

One of the best there is! LOVE this book!

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "I always enjoy Emily Giffin's books. This book was a good, light read. It was not my favourite, but I still enjoyed it."

This is an idea that a better writer (such as Alice Munro) would have used as the basis for a short story. Instead it is padded to novel length. Ellen, has to decide between two men and the cities they live in. Her choices are her wealthy patrician husband Andy in Atlanta and sexy commitment-shy ex-boyfriend Leo in New York. Neither Andy nor Leo had any personality to speak of and I came to dislike Ellen thoroughly by the end of the novel. There is a mismatch of the subject headings for this novel - it has nothing to do with missing teenagers or the Internet.

This is only the second Emily Giffin book I've read and I truly enjoyed it. I'm really impressed with her stories.

My favorite book by this author and one of my favorite books I've ever read. A good re-read as well.

A truly exceptional book that makes you open your heart to new opportunities in life !

A nice, light read. At first, I was mad at Ellen for contemplating cheating on her husband. Then I was mad at Andy and his superficial and snobby family and almost started rooting for Ellen to cheat on him. Craziness. I'd probably read another book by her.
