Summary

What if The One was actually the one that got away?

A riveting story of love and the paradox of choice from the Sunday Times No. 1 bestselling author of Lies Lies Lies, Just My Luck, and Both of You.

Natalie and Neil everything they could want: a stylish London house, two high-flying careers, a close-knit group of friends and family. And best of all: an ideal marriage. Having children, they’ve agreed, would only disrupt their carefree lives.

But then Neil turns thirty-five, and suddenly he’s longing for a baby. However, Nat has not had a similar change of heart.

As they no longer agree on this fundamental issue, their once perfect relationship starts to crumble. Nat starts to think about her exes and wonders if one of the men she has loved in the past can offer her a future, or by looking over her shoulder is she simply going to trip up?

Disappointing storyline/ending!

Was looking forward to this due to the unusual plot for a romance novel. Refreshing, I thought. But I was utterly disappointed! Noone in this story seems to have heard of the concept of consent and everyone is patronising the main character. No wonder though, the book was published in 2010... (and thankfully, a few things have changed for the better since then!) The only positive thing worth mentioning is the narrator who does a great job.

Poor Ending

I absolutely loved this book until the last chapter where it all fell apart for me. It was refreshing to read a book about a deliberately child-free woman, and I felt the character really resonated. However the final chapter ruined all of this, resulting in a tired and stale ending.

Narraters voice extremely off putting

Fan of Adele Parks books but disappointed with this audio from the off, the Narrater has a tone of voice that was hard to listen too, I have had to stop it short…disappointing

Easy read/listen

Okay book. Certainly not the best Adele Parks I have read. I was able to go a few days in between listening

Absolutely loved it

This is the first Adele Parks book I’ve ever read and could not put it down
I listened to it within 24 hrs and loved every moment
It had me gasping in horror at the revelations and loved how it ended
Highly Recommended
