I had heard around #bookstagram that One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid was a great book on audio so when I needed to paint my son’s bedroom, I thought this was the perfect time to give it a shot.
It was perfect! I was engaged from the first chapter and found myself continuing to paint (whaaaat?!?!?!) because I just wasn’t ready to leave the world of Emma/Jesse/Sam. The minutes flew by as one of the hardest situations (no spoilers here!) I can imagine echoed throughout the room as I painted. I felt my jaw drop in several instances because Reid did such an amazing job of evoking empathy in her reader’s hearts.
This is the second book I’ve read by Taylor Jenkins Reid and I can wholeheartedly say I’m a fan! This storyline is drastically different than The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (read my review here), but the author’s writing style is the same. Reid weaves a tale in such a way that the reader become invested quickly. She writes with such gusto that one can’t turn the pages fast enough. Reid leads the readers with just enough information that they want to keep going, but still somehow manages to surprise them when the story eventually plays out.
Taylor Jenkins Reid’s style is fun, engaging, and thought-provoking. If you haven’t given one of her books a read yet, do it soon! You won’t be disappointed!
If you’ve read books other than these two by Taylor Jenkins Reid, which one should I pick up next? Also, I’m always up for audiobook recommendations, so please leave me some of those suggestions as well!

I loved Evelyn Hugo and have been toying with trying something else by her, but was nervous b/c I heard Evelyn Hugo was such a departure for her. But, knowing the writing style is the same makes me way more likely to try it. Adding to TBR!
I enjoyed this one! I hope you do too! Please come back and tell me.
I’m so glad you enjoyed One True Loves! Taylor Jenkins Reid is one of my favorite authors. I’ve read everything she’s written, so I highly recommend all her books! Evelyn Hugo was so different, but by far one of my favorite books this year! To recommend a next TJR book for you, I’d say After I Do…it was the 1st one I read and Forever Interrupted…but you’ll need some tissues. I cried with that one! Hope that helps 😊
