"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"-- Provided by publisher.

Another gem from the lovely Jojo Moyes! Beautifully written and nicely paced, you root for the two protagonists in this story and hope that love truly conquers all.

This was a fun read with excellent characters. I loved every one of them and I did dislike the arses. This story dealt with realistic problems which had me think and wanting to come back to the story whenever I had the chance. The twists and surprises kept me wanting to go on and kept me curious. I wouldn't say I have liked the plot as much as Me Before You, but I have sensed the writing style of JoJo Moyes and I am looking forward to read all her other books.

This was a really quick read; light and fairly predictable plot but well written and fun.

Wow. I don’t tend to cry often while I’m reading a book, yet I am not afraid to admit that I cried not once, but TWO TIMES while reading this one. Seriously. Wonderful characters that I became very attached to, including a huge, smelly dog named Norman. Touching, heartfelt, and full of humour. I absolutely loved this book!

Can One Plus One be greater than two? Read this delightful novel and find out. Jess is a single mom who is the mother of a Math Whiz daughter and a different son. They endure no end of trials and tribulations but Jess never loses her optimism. Will the burdens never cease? Enter Ed Nicholls who too is a victim. This enchanting book describes Jess's adventures with her family and Ed. Will it all turn out right? Nothing like reading the book to find out.

In some ways this novel was just missing something-fluidity maybe? It was not as good as Me Before You, but it was still engaging and sweet, and a little heartbreaking at times. I kept thinking about the book and couldn't wait to get back to it, so that definitely says something!

Great Summer Read! I did prefer "Me Before You" but this one was also a quick read that kept me wondering what would happen next.

If you're looking for a quick escapist read, then this book might be a good one to pick up. I found it a little too predictable. The way everyone's lives, including the dog's!, got nicely tied up into a neat little package at the end (a package you could see coming from second chapter on) was disappointing, but that being said, I did read the entire book since her actual writing is good. She's written better books, in my opinion.

Jojo Moyes does it again. Another enjoyable read.

This is the second book I've read by her (also Me Before You) and I had my doubts that she could pull it off a second time. But she did it. I loved this one although it made me cry in some spots. Felt like I knew the characters and I couldn't wait to read more about them. Will definitely be working my way through the library's collection of her books.

Everything seems to go wrong for Jess, her two kids, and a large slobbery dog, trying to survive bullies, two jobs, and a genius for a daughter. You would think that life has her beaten but, with a little help from a friend, she "sorts it all out"!
