One single mom. One chaotic family. One quirky stranger. One irresistible love story from the New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You
American audiences have fallen in love with Jojo Moyes. Ever since she debuted Stateside she has captivated readers and reviewers alike, and hit the New York Times bestseller list with the word-of-mouth sensation Me Before You. Now, with One Plus One, she’s written another contemporary opposites-attract love story.
Suppose your life sucks. A lot. Your husband has done a vanishing act, your teenage stepson is being bullied, and your math whiz daughter has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you can’t afford to pay for. That’s Jess’s life in a nutshell—until an unexpected knight in shining armor offers to rescue them. Only Jess’s knight turns out to be Geeky Ed, the obnoxious tech millionaire whose vacation home she happens to clean. But Ed has big problems of his own, and driving the dysfunctional family to the Math Olympiad feels like his first unselfish act in ages . . . maybe ever.
Karen’s Book Buzz Review
Every now and again I fancy reading a mainstream book and I was searching through my Kindle to see what to read when I came across this one. I don’t even remember buying it.
I don’t always review books like this. On Goodreads it had over 2K reviews and on Amazon even more, so they aren’t really important. No one is going to read them.
Because I absolutely enjoyed the storyline, I thought I would. It’s one of those books that you can lose yourself in and total absorb yourself into the pages and the world just ceases.
I read Me before You, the one made into a film. I didn’t read it or watch it for quite some time because it just didn’t appeal. Anyway, I did, and was suprised because I loved it. I like the way she writes, its clear, consice and says exactly what it needs to say, and no more.
I then went on to read the follow up to that, Me after You, and surprisingly I found it even better than the first one – but you have to read the first, first – if you see what I mean!
Then there is this one, that is not connected to the other two in any way whatsoever – apart from the author, of course.
There are not many books that have me laughing and crying, and there are certainly none that spring to mind where I laugh out loud – I’m not a lauging out loud person. This did. The was about a family, and family relationships, and family can be amusing. This one certainly was, more so when it didn’t mean to be. JoJo Moyes has a rare gift, and I expect I will be reading more of her.
If you have read it, I would love to hear what you though.
