Review: One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Posted on


From the author of Maybe in Another Life—named a PeopleMagazine pick and a “Best Book of the Summer” by Glamour andUSA TODAY—comes a breathtaking new love story about a woman unexpectedly forced to choose between the husband she has long thought dead and the fiancé who has finally brought her back to life.

In her twenties, Emma Blair marries her high school sweetheart, Jesse. They build a life for themselves, far away from the expectations of their parents and the people of their hometown in Massachusetts. They travel the world together, living life to the fullest and seizing every opportunity for adventure.

On their first wedding anniversary, Jesse is on a helicopter over the Pacific when it goes missing. Just like that, Jesse is gone forever.

Emma quits her job and moves home in an effort to put her life back together. Years later, now in her thirties, Emma runs into an old friend, Sam, and finds herself falling in love again. When Emma and Sam get engaged, it feels like Emma’s second chance at happiness.

That is, until Jesse is found. He’s alive, and he’s been trying all these years to come home to her. With a husband and a fiancé, Emma has to now figure out who she is and what she wants, while trying to protect the ones she loves.

Who is her one true love? What does it mean to love truly?

Emma knows she has to listen to her heart. She’s just not sure what it’s saying.

My Review

“There is nothing more romantic than this. Holding the very person that you thought you lost, and knowing that you’ll never lose them again. I don’t think that true love means your only love. I think true love means loving truly. Loving purely. Loving wholly.”

Beautiful. Well written. Utterly captivating. These are just a few words to describe this amazing book. One True Loves, takes you an incredible journey. One that I know I will never forget. This is one of those books that simple words can not do justice. It’s one of those that the writing will just speak for itself….

From the moment you pick up this book, you will be spellbound. You will not be able to put it down. You will find yourself just absorbing every word, every sentence, every moment. You won’t be able to read the pages fast enough. The story is just one of those that will captivate you the whole time. A story that will pull at your heart and have you wondering what would you do if you were in this situation. A story that will have you questioning and wondering the very meaning of true love.

I loved everything about One True Loves, from start to finish. The writing is amazing and the characters are incredibly well- written. This is my first book by this author and I can not wait to read more from her in the future.
