Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for Dex.
"A modern-day Jane Austen." —Vanity Fair"What kind of self-described ‘nice girl’ would sleep with her best friend’s fiancé? One who’s seriously flawed, like this delightful debut novel’s heroine, but also surprisingly winning and real." —Glamour"This page-turning, heartbreakingly honest debut…deftly depicts the hopeful hearts behind an unsympathetic situation." —Entertainment Weekly "Both hilarious and thoughtfully written, resisting the frequent tendency of first-time novelists to make their characters and situations a little too black-and-white. You may never think of friendships – their duties, the oblique dances of power and their give-and-take – quite the same way again." —Seattle Times"A thrill to read." —Washington Post"Sharply observed and beautifully etched." —Newark Star-Ledger"Dead-on dialogue, real-life complexity and genuine warmth." —Seattle Post-Intelligencer"Forget ‘Bergdorf Blondes.’ The [book] you want in your bag this year is Emily Giffin’s SOMETHING BORROWED. It’s smarter, less arch and more believable. The characters are authentic. Best of all, SOMETHING BORROWED captures what it’s like to be 30 and single in the city, when your life pretty much revolves around friendships and love and their attendant complexities." —San Francisco Chronicle
