Thete is something wrong with a mother who lets a 15 year old child talk to her the way Maya talks to her mother in this book. The heroine in this book is weak and stupid and completely unlikable. I did not enjoy this story and will not read any more by this author. Who sleeps around so much like this these days?

Loved this story - I borrowed it from my wife on a long flight to Austrailia and could not stop reading it. Not my normal reading material but I had to comment on how well written it was.

Spoiler alert! Terrible book. Okay, maybe not terrible, but Boring with a capital B. Poor Kennedy - hubby leaves, she gets to do anything and everything she ever dreamed of, and everything, everything!, goes right. She supports herself on a job that otherwise wouldn't buy the average person groceries, everything she attempts to do is a fabulous success, every man that meets her wants her, blah, blah, blah, Even her smart-mouthed daughter gives it up in short order. Poor Kennedy! Oh, wait. Poor Reader!

I found this book hard to put down. Really a down to earth author. I thoroughly enjoy her books - highly recommend this one!

Such a romantic, hot, turn on story line. I couldn't put the book down and finished it in 2 days. Just makes me want to connect to one of my old Bo's and to have a Declan of my own!!! You will understand what I mean when you read this book.

While reading this book all I could think about was who I could recommend it too! A very fast and good read. It is a great first novel, Mrs. Satran should be proud! Who knows maybe after I tell all of my friends to read it, we may be having some 'house warming- I am now happily divorced parties' ourselves!

As her neat suburban world crumbles Kennedy Smith dreams of her carefree days in Lower Manhattan before she married and became responsible, dependable, practical. Her marriage is over as her husband of ten years has met a much younger surfer. They had one child together five year old Amanda. Her oldest daughter teenage Maya (from her first relationship) is rebelling and wants to meet her biological father, Marco Rivera.

With no hope for alimony since her ex-husband gave up law for yoga, Kennedy seeks the last man she ever had a one-night fling with, her former boss at a lower Manhattan bar, Declan McGlynn. She finds the bar and sees Dec still tending it. She explains she left him because she did not want to be his babe of the month so instead married Frank. Dec informs her she would not have been a one nighter because he loved her. As they get reacquainted with one another, they realize they love one another, but she believes he is incapable of committing so sometime soon she will have to end this relationship.

THE MAN I SHOULD HAVE MARRIED is an enjoyable relationship romp that centers mostly on Kennedy. The super lead protagonist has woes that would trample anyone, but she stoically deals with all of them as best as she can. Her ex husband makes no sense even with his mid age crisis and Maya is too cute in a nastily teenage way. The delightful Kennedy is the center that holds the plot together hooking readers to root for her to make it preferably with Dec.
