I really enjoyed this one. I liked that you weren't sure which life she was going to choose until the end. Very interesting story.

I really enjoyed this book, it bounces effortlessly between the past and the present, referencing trends in the 80's that we all participated in. (Aqua Net and spandex anyone?) Even though it is a light read, it does get in your soul and make you rethink the choices you made in life, weather you should have zigged when you zagged. I was sad when the book ended, I wished it was longer so I would still be wishing for a few more minutes to escape into the lives of the characters in the book. I definitely would recommend it.

Super easy read. The gimmick of the way it's written (as you read, you're not sure which "Mike" she is currently married to) made me read through it quickly. Characters are a bit cookie cutter (the bored wife, the busy husband, etc.) but she manages to make them original in the flashbacks and in the very end when they reconnect emotionally.

A great book about the 2 Mikes and the girl who has to choose which one is better for her. The book is set in the present and the past. I don't want to say to much about it since I don't want to give anything away, but I felt it was like a chick lit mystery, trying to figure out which one she married..

I am actually keeping this book because I liked it so much.
reviewed Mike, Mike, and Me (Red Dress Ink) on
The book switches back and forth from the past to the present and each chapter ends with some introspection about the future or the past. It gets really cheesy and repetitive. I guess its a cute story but I just got annoyed and that prevented me from really getting into it.

I thought this was a great book because it really makes you think about decisions you've made it the past regarding love and if you changed your mind, what would happen. It's a quick read and fairly simple. The author goes back and forth between her current life as a stay at home mom and her past, when she had to decide between two men named Mike.

This book was a great guess! The woman in the story is involed with two men each named Mike, and she goes back in time to tell you her story... and you don't know until the very end which one she ended up marrying... and she truly kept me guessing! Fun read

A good story about a woman torn between her present and her past.

I really enjoyed how this book bounced back and forth from the past (with all it's awesome 80's references - hello Aqua Net!) and the present. Very creative...and I found myself changing my mind back and forth between which Mike she really ended up with. A lot of fun and a surprisingly easy read, even with the different decades and men with the same fist name.

A tale of two Mikes. . .
and the one that got away

Once upon a time in the 1980s, a girl named Beau was torn between two Mikes: did she prefer her high-school sweetheart or the sexy stranger she'd picked up in an airport bar? One she eventually married, the other she left behind (and forgot all about, or tried to, anyway).

But which Mike did she choose? This delightful tale by the bestselling author or Slightly Single and Slightly Settled alternates between the story of Beau's summer of Mikes and the outcome fifteen years later. . .without giving away which Mike ended up where--in Beau's marriage bed or in her memory.

In the "Now" chapters, the former swinging single lives in the 'burbs with a childbirth-traumatized body, an increasingly distant husband and a sad sack maid who isn't much for cleaning. When out of the blue the Mike-not-taken sends her flirty e-mail, she suddenly finds herself back to square one, trying to decide which man is the Mike of her dreams.

Unlike her heroine, happily married suburban mom Wendy Markham has never been torn between two men, and she never knew all the words to any Paula Abdul song; however, she unfortunately did frequently hairspray her bangs into a tusk and wear neon-striped bike shorts back in the summer of 1989. Under her real name, she is the New York Times bestselling author or more than fifty books.
