Now, eight years after leaving him, with a promotion within reach, she is poised to take her place among the elite of Wall Street. She will soon be working twenty-four-seven to reorganize a failing company, and she must have someone to care for her children.
She has few options, and she reluctantly concludes she must beg Chris for his help. She has not talked with Chris, written, texted, friended, private messaged, or tweeted Chris since leaving him, but if she cannot convince him to help her, she will lose her promotion. Her dream of wealth will vanish.
Opposites had attracted when they had fallen in love. Erin remembers a Chris who was laid back, satisfied, and unambitious. He seems not to have changed. He lives on a small island with no home mail delivery. He has no obvious means of support.
She fears if she asks Chris to care for their children for the summer, she will be drawn back into his world. She will lose her drive to succeed and everything for which she has been working. If he does not help her, her promotion will be denied, and lightning will not strike a second time. How can she send their children to live with him without becoming entangled herself?
If you have ever “wanted it all,” buy this book! You will enjoy discovering how Erin makes the choice between “love or loot.”

Money or Men is an incredible read. It’s very on-point with struggles that couples face in divorce, as well as for ambitious women, fighting to make a successful path for themselves in this world. When Erin feels that her husband, Chris, is not as driven as she is, they find themselves divorced and as she desired, she is pushed up higher on the corporate ladder. But it requires her solely focusing on her career — not her twin daughters. I struggled reading how Chris could go so long without keeping in touch with his daughters; but had high hopes when he was given the opportunity to reconnect during the summer while Erin climbed that ladder a bit more. My understanding shifted for both characters and I grew to sympathize with Chris. Sometimes life throws us some dirty choices — but I feel he made the best with what he had and of the couple, had his head on a little straighter. Erin and Chris were both exquisitely written to where I felt like I could compare them to real-life couples that I know facing some of the same difficulties. The end left me believing that everything does happen for specific reasons and at exactly the right moment.
