I enjoyed "The One You're With", because of the "What if?" factor. What day goes by that we don't have many decisions to make? We all have those moments of decision. After one path has been decided, and we find out where that path leads, we often wonder where the other path would have gone if it had been chosen instead.
I like the way Lauren Denton gets into the minds of the characters and eventually brings the crisis to a
satisfying conclusion. (Of course, it depends on for whom you are rooting.) It is a good story with interesting dynamics. ( )

The One You're With is another great work of southern fiction by Lauren Denton. I had the privilege of listening to this story while driving through Alabama which helped it come even more alive for me. The author tackles some tough issues in this book, but all are handled well. The story centers around Mac and Edie who were high school sweethearts, but go their own way one summer in college. They get back together after that summer and have a fabulous life together complete with family and careers. Nineteen years have passed since that summer and one day Mac gets a very unexpected visitor. This person has the potential to turn their whole lives upside down. Readers get a firsthand look at how Mac and Edie work through this and continue to choose each other. "Marriage consisted of choosing the one you married over and over and over again." This is one of my favorite quotes from the book because it is so true!! If you love southern women's fiction and you have not tried a Lauren Denton book, then you are missing out.

Thank you to Thomas Nelson and Netgalley for an advanced copy of this story. All opinions expressed are entirely my own. ( )

Wow, this author takes readers on quite the adventure I did not see coming. She respectfully explores how an event that happened in the past can and does affect the future of this young couple. Mac and Edie were high school sweethearts destined to be together forever. Or so they thought. But in their senior year, they break up. They take the time to explore options they never would have considered when they were together. Mac goes to work on a boat (taking a break before embarking on medical school) and Edie heads to N.Y. to be an intern under a respected designer. Each of their worlds are shaken to the core of their being that summer. They discover who they are without the other person? It was freeing not having to live up to other people’s expectations. But incidents occurred that summer would change the course of their future. Neither one of them discussed the things that happened when they were apart. It did not seem important at the time, but oh, it would be in the future.

I was pleasantly surprised at how the author had these characters experience a wide range of emotions, present and past. I liked how the author talks about tough issues and asks the questions most are afraid to. This is a multifaceted, compelling story with full-bodied characters I instantly connected with. I kept flipping pages as the characters evolve and face difficult situations with honesty, which makes this a powerful, thought-provoking and hopeful novel you don’t want to miss. This is a remarkable, beautiful, heartwarming story that in the end will make you smile and warm your heart. This book is a great summer read and one that would work well for your next book club pick.

The One You’re With is fiction that spans the time between 2000 and present day. It is a story of high-school sweethearts and best friends, Mac, Edie and Graham, and the choices they made earlier and how they have affected their lives. This is a well written story that focuses on the outcome of choices the three made while in college, especially Mac’s summer romance. This story is so realistic in the sense that Mac and Edie’s marriage has change through the years as their children have grown and their careers have become successful.

I enjoyed reading this book, there is sadness, struggles and acceptance. I enjoyed reading how Mac’s family worked through accepting his daughter and the relationships they all developed. I appreciated the decision Edie made with changes to her career and doing something for herself. This story grabbed me right from the start and stayed with me after finishing. There is so much substance in this story, that at times it felt real. While this is published by a Christian publisher, there is only the mention of attending church.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and Thomas Nelson Publishing. This is my honest review. ( )

This story could have been depressing but it was not. I say this because of the way that Edie reacted when she learned shocking news from Mac. Which I am not blaming her for her reaction as I would have had the same reaction and feelings. It just is the fact that Edie could have been the bitter wife through out the story but she did not become that person.

Thus in turn I was not turned off by anyone and embraced them all. This book may be fiction but it felt real. This shows that I really embraced the characters and the story. It was such an easy read for me because of these factors. Readers will like this book. I know I did and want to read more books by this author. ( )
