About One plus One

Jess’ life can be challenging sometimes: her daughter is a math whiz kid, her stepson is being bullied, she has to work long hours every day and her ex-husband is not helping her financially. 
On their way to Math Olympiad, their car breaks down and Jess has no idea what to do next. Ed, the obnoxious tech millionaire whose vacation home she happens to clean,  wants to help her.

But Ed has also big problems of his own and there is a chance he has to go to jail.


First of all, I think Ed is a good man. He decides to give Jess and her children a ride to Scotland. A lot of people don’t care a lot about other people. I know he has done something that was completely wrong at work and because of that he is in real trouble and he lost his job. But that was a huge mistake he made. He was in love.

I think this trip was great for both of them. Ed never really worried about money and he always has enough. But when he gets to know Jess, he also sees what it is like to be poor. Jess has two jobs: cleaning and she works at a pub. And still, she doesn’t have money to buy something extra.

It was also a great trip for Jess and her children as well. Jess learned to relax a little bit more and she opened up a little bit more. 
Nicky learned that he could find more people like him by starting a blog and Tanzie learned that it is okay to like math. And that you shouldn’t change who you really are to fit in. 

One thing I didn’t like was the chronically of the story. One chapter you see/read everything from Ed’s perspective and one chapter later you go back in time and read the same things from Jess’ perspective.  That is the reason why I only gave it 3,5 out 5 stars. 

But overall it was a good book. It has everything in it: romance, sadness, fights, humour. A perfect read for a day at the beach.
