I liked this book to a certain degree after I forced myself to read through a few chapters. I found it a little difficult to get into, at first, because of the authors over-the-top analogies; there were too many, and they seemed a little forced. The ending could also have been better. In saying that, it was light-hearted and the heroine's group of friends really put the fun into the story. All round, it was a nice read and. I would read another book by this author based on this book.

I really enjoyed this book and the plot lines defiantly threw me through a loop. I honestly didn't know how this story was going to finish. Rachel might get back with Rhys. No wait she isn't. It made me laugh, cry and have a silly grin on my face. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, especially those who like romance books. I did cry at the point in the book when Ben says to Rachel 'Please don't come looking for me again.' I felt so sorry for Rachel. I was so happy with the ending and would read more of Mhairi McFarlane's work. I really enjoyed being able to read about their past as I felt you got to understand the character's a lot more through the jump backs. ( )

Loved it! ( )

An enjoyable read with believable characters and witty storytelling. Over-prolonged conflict felt tiresome, but good overall. ( )

Shallow nonsense. A desperate attempt to be funny. Was definitely not funny or anything else worthwhile.
I bought this on Amazon recommendation and the rave reviews there. I must conclude that the Amazon recommendation system is idiotic. My reading history must show that I like well written, intelligent books, so why did this pitch up? I will stick to LT recommendations in future, ( )

What happens when the one that got away comes back? Find out in this sparkling debut from Mhairi McFarlane. 'Think of the great duos of history. We're just like them.' 'You mean like Kylie and Jason? Torvill and Dean? Sonny and Cher?' 'I think you've missed the point, Rachel.' Rachel and Ben. Ben and Rachel. It was them against the world. Until it all fell apart. It's been a decade since they last spoke, but when Rachel bumps into Ben one rainy day, the years melt away. They'd been partners in crime and the best of friends. But life has moved on: Ben is married. Rachel is not. Yet in that split second, Rachel feels the old friendship return. And along with it, the broken heart she's never been able to mend. Hilarious, heartbreaking and everything in between, you'll be hooked from their first 'hello'.
