Love the One You're With by Emily Giffin

After reading two books by Emily Giffin, my mom and I decided to buy her other two books that are out.  The first one I read is Love the One You're With.

Ellen Dempsey has the perfect marriage to her husband, Andy.  One day as she is walking down the street, she passes the one that got away, Leo.  All of a sudden all of these feelings come flooding back to her, and she can't get Leo out of her mind.  They start talking again...

I really wanted to know what was going to happen in this book.  I needed to know if Ellen was going to stay with Andy or go back to Leo.  I don't think this gives anything away, but I was really unhappy with how the book ended.  Emily Giffin writes some questions for a reading group guide at the end of every book, and one of the questions after this book is "Do you think Ellen made the right decision in the end?"  I think this shows that the author expected some people to not like the end!

When you read books, are you ever really unhappy with the ending???

I found the book interesting in that it was written in the first person.
