Opposite of Love by Julie Buxbaum

I really enjoyed this book. It was a little bit deeper than light chick lit books, but not so deep that you found it hard to get through.

Emily the main character is a successful Manhattan lawyer. Just as she feels her long-time boyfriend is about to propose, she goes and breaks up with him. She can't really exlpain why, but feels like it was the best decision.

Her life post break-up starts to unravel- Her Grandpa Jack is starting to loose it and her emotionally distant father isn't helping the situation. Her boss is an ever-demanding womanizer and Emily has stepped right in to being his target. She finds herself at many crossroads throughout the story and misses having her best friend and the one who knows her better than anyone- her Ex Andrew- to go through it with. But he wants her to just leave him alone.

It was a great, plausible story and I am looking forward to reading Julie's next novel "After You".

I give this one 4 out of 5 stars.
