Book review: My One and Only by author Kristan Higgins

I received this book through netgalley.com for my honest review and opinion.

Kristan Higgins is a new to me author. This was the first book of hers that I've ever read. My One and Only is a wonderful but complicated story of Nick and Harper. Nick fell for Harper really hard when she was only 20 and he was but a few years older. They married, Nick had big ideas for his life and Harper had alot of fears. Things went from bad to worse and then a couple misunderstandings and then they were divorced. Thirteen years later Harper's sister is marrying Nick's brother and they meet once again.

Just when she thought she had life and love all figured out…


Divorce attorney Harper James can’t catch a break. Bad enough that she runs into her ex-hubby, Nick, at her sister’s destination wedding, but now, by a cruel twist of fate, she’s being forced to make a cross-country road trip with him. And her almost-fiancé back at home is not likely to be sympathetic.

Harper can’t help that Nick has come blazing back into her life in all of his frustratingly appealing, gorgeous architect glory. But in Nick’s eyes, Harper’s always been the one. If they can only get it right this time, forever might be waiting—just around the bend.

This to me what a very complicated story with lots of secondary characters. This didn't bother me i enjoyed all the characters. Harper's mother abandoned her when she was on 13 years old. She thought they were close so her heart was shattered. She couldn't seem to communicate with her dad either. These things combine to make her a cynic. She can't let anyone in for fear they'll leave. When Nick leaves her after a misunderstanding she goes back to her where her family is and gets a divorce from Nick. Now at her sisters wedding she finds Nick. There's a little love hate going on but the spark is still there. After the wedding everyone leaves but Harper gets stuck stranded there with no airport shuttle because they've closed down the airport while something is repaired. Guess who is still there with a car and offer to drive her to the next nearest airport. That's when the really journey begins of Nick and Harper. Honestly this book will make you tear up at least a couple times maybe more. Life is messy and complicated and this book shows that but also the wonder of love and what it can do. The one thing i did not understand was the use of the word crotch and a curse word. Maybe this is a regional slang thing. If anyone knows I'd love to hear about it. lol I thought it was a typo at first but it's throughout the entire book so i guess not.

I give My One and Only 4 Modokker Book Pick Stars.
