Now, with One Plus One, she’s written another contemporary opposites-attract love story.
 
Suppose your life sucks. A lot. Your husband has done a vanishing act, your teenage stepson is being bullied, and your math whiz daughter has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you can’t afford to pay for. That’s Jess’s life in a nutshell—until an unexpected knight in shining armor offers to rescue them. Only Jess’s knight turns out to be Geeky Ed, the obnoxious tech millionaire whose vacation home she happens to clean. But Ed has big problems of his own, and driving the dysfunctional family to the Math Olympiad feels like his first unselfish act in ages . . . maybe ever.
 
One Plus One is Jojo Moyes at her astounding best. You’ll laugh, you’ll weep, and when you flip the last page, you’ll want to start all over again.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.5 stars This author's "Me before you" is in my top 10 books of all time. This book was also quite good, although "Me before you" did set the bar rather high. I'm giving this book 4.5 stars. The story was told from the perspective of each of the 4 main characters. I enjoyed each of their narratives immensely. I loved Jess's optimistic spirit, her work ethic, and her parenting. With this author you know you're in for a satisfying ending, which doesn't always mean happily ever after, so I read to the end with great interest as to how the novel would wrap. A recommended read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended only recently picked up one of British author JoJo Moyes's titles - Me Before You. I chose to listen to it on the way back and forth to work. I absolutely loved it and found myself taking backroads so listen a little longer! My library hold for the audio version of her latest book, One Plus One, came in at the beginning of last week - and I again started taking the slower road home! Jess has been a single mom to her goth stepson Nicky and her math prodigy daughter Tanzie for two years - since her husband had to 'get away for a bit' and went to live with his mother. Jess and the kids live on a council estate along with Norman the dog. Jess does what she can to make ends meet - barmaid and cleaning, scrimping and saving. Ed is a computer whiz, under investigation for insider training. And their lives collide in the most chaotic, wonderful way. Moyes is such a wonderful writer - her characters are flawed and lovable - and the listener can't help but wish for a happy ending. The story is engaging, funny, sad, romantic, real and oh so incredibly addicting and entertaining. And for those thinking to lable it 'chick lit', I think it's much more than that. Moyes explores real situations such as bullying, poverty, parenting and more. After listening to the first book in audio, I knew I wanted to listen to all of Moyes's titles. The publisher has chosen excellent readers for One Plus One - their voices all suited the mental images I had for the characters, their voices were incredibly expressive and I immediately felt like I was part of the story. Highly, highly recommended as both a read and a listen

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful read! I bought this book when it came out but put it on my bookshelf for just the right time. I just finished reading it and I absolutely loved it. I was so sorry when I finished the book. Definitely a book I would recommend! You laugh, you cry, you can relate (at least I can)! Bravo!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Funny, Warm-Hearted, and Quirky Another excellent novel from Jojo Moyes. I have read many of her books and One by One is just another example of the author's ability to write a realistic love story infused with humor, sadness, and reward. Well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this book! Jojo Moyes has done it again! This book made me laugh and made me cry. The story is a very touching one about a family that just can't seem to get anywhere. Jess, the mother, is working two jobs to make ends meet but it is never quite enough. I loved the characters, even the dog. The book is about flawed people trying to do the right thing, even though it doesn't always work out for them. There are all sorts of little moments in the story that make you sigh and just say "Awwww...". You will find yourself rooting for this little family and hoping like crazy that just once, something can go right for them. This author has the talent to make you feel empathy for the characters, quite like no author I've read before. She did it in Me Before You and she's done it again in this book.

Read from the Book

***This excerpt is from an advance uncorrected proof*** Copyright © 2014 by Jojo Moyes Prologue Ed Ed Nicholls was in the creatives’ room drinking coffee with Ronan when Sidney walked in. A man he vaguely recognized stood behind him, another of the Suits. “We’ve been looking for you,” Sidney said. “Well, you found us,” Ed said. “Not Ronan, you.” Ed studied them for a minute, then threw a red foam ball at the ceiling and caught it. He glanced sideways at Ronan. Investacorp had bought half shares in the company a full eighteen months ago, but Ed and Ronan still thought of them as the Suits. It was one of the kinder things they called them in private. “Do you know a woman called Deanna Lewis?” “Why?” “Did you give her any information about the launch of the new software?” “What?” “It’s a simple question.” Ed looked from one Suit to the other. The atmosphere was strangely charged. His stomach, a packed elevator, began a slow descent toward his feet. “We may have chatted about work. No specifics that I re- member.” “Deanna Lewis?” said Ronan. “You need to be clear about this, Ed. Did you give her any information about the launch of SFAX?” “No. Maybe. What is this?” “The police are downstairs searching your office, with two goons from the Financial Services Authority. Her brother has been arrested for insider tr
