4.5 stars. Emma was pissing me off most of the story. I wanted her to step on a lego and stub her pinky toe a few times …. But well written and loving story! ( )

Another knock it out of the park book by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I fell in love with this book right from the beginning. She is able to capture so much emotion in just her words, that it blows me away. Every thing the characters were feeling, I was feeling.. love, loss, grief to name a few. A book that is definitely worth investing your feelings in. ( )

This could have been my favorite. The writing, the story, the pain, everything is perfect, except for Emma. Her situation completely tore me in two, and yes, I relate at how hard it must be to be in her situation and the book's ending is perfect, so why I'm infuriated with Emma? Simple. If you want to break up with someone, do you have to f*ck them first? Well, that's what she did. Twice, because once is not enough.


She first did it with Sam before breaking up with him to understand her feelings for Jesse, then she did it with Jesse once she understood he wasn't the one she wants to spend her life with. Girl, Seriously?

Taylor Jenkins Reid - One True Loves: Perhaps my least favorite of hers so far. She just keeps saying the same thing over and over and over… #cursorybookreviews #cursoryreviews ( )

Crazy situation was unbelievable but that's definitely Reid's style, she loves to see what she can do with unlikely situation and this is just that and a good look at how life events can completely change you. ( )
