One True Loves contains the ultimate love triangle. I usually cannot stand love triangles. I don’t understand how someone can be so indecisive about who love or who they want to be with. But in this book it actually makes sense. Emma fell in love with Jesse in high school. They left their small Massachusetts town together to attend the University of Los Angeles, and they never looked back. They followed their dreams and traveled the world. The night before their one year wedding anniversary, Jesse left for a job in Alaska, and the unthinkable happened, his helicopter crashed into the Pacific Ocean, and he was declared dead.
Now almost 4 years later, Emma has moved on, she’s fallen in love with Sam, and they’re engaged to be married. And then Jesse comes home. Emma is confused and torn – rightfully so. Who does she truly love? Jesse? Or Sam? Or both?
This book was so good! Talk about suspense. I couldn’t put this book down. I needed to know who Emma would pick. Jesse is the adventurous first love. He made Emma take chances and pursue her dreams. But Sam is the sweet, steady, practical love that she has grown comfortable with after the traumatic event of losing Jesse. I knew who I would pick, but I was never sure until the end who Emma would pick.
The emotions in this book were so real. Through Emma’s voice, I was able to experience her struggle. I described this book to my husband as being like the movie Cast Away but from Helen Hunt’s perspective. This book will definitely make my top reads of 2016 list. I loved it!
