All You Could Ask For by Mike Greenberg

Goodreads:  Three women are about to find their lives intertwined in ways none of them could ever have imagined. . . .

Brooke has been happily married to her college sweetheart for fifteen years. Even after the C-section, the dog poop, the stomach viruses, and the coffee breath, Scott still always winks at her at just the right moments. That is why, for her beloved, romantic, successful husband's fortieth birthday, she is giving him pictures. Of her. Naked.

Samantha's newlywed bliss is steamrolled when she finds shocking evidence of infidelity on her husband's computer. She has been married for two days. She won't be for much longer.

Katherine works eighteen hours a day for the man who irreparably shattered her heart fifteen years ago. She has a duplex on Park Avenue, a driver, a chef, and a stunning house in Southampton, and she bought it all herself. So what if she has to see Phillip every single workday for the rest of her natural life? Brooke, Samantha, and Katherine don't know one another, but all three are about to discover the conquering power of friendship--and that they have all they could ask for, as long as they have one another.



Kritters Thoughts:  Three very different women start this book in three very different places, but with each of them facing the same life changing diagnosis, they find something in common and each help the others.  

With three women in this book, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to keep their stories apart, but they were so uniquely different that there was no confusion as to each of their own situations.  The flow of each story to the next was priceless, a few times the transitions were just genius and I was just waiting to see how Greenberg would take us from one narrative to the next.  

As many of the other reviews have stated, I also couldn't believe that these fantastically genuine women were written by a male - not to knock the male authors, but most books I read are written by women, so I expect them to get the women's perspective right.  I almost wish I didn't know it was a guy until the end because it would have been even more amazing not to know ahead of time.  


Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
