I am totally in love in Roni Loren's new series. These characters are so authentic that I swear I could drive down to Austin and join the Liv, Rebecca, Taryn, and Kincaid for one of their "bitchin' brunches."
If you aren't familiar with the The Ones Who Got Away series, it is a contemporary romance series about the survivors of a school shooting ten years later. The shooting is a very small part of these stories, instead the focus is on four woman refusing to let one night of tragedy define them.
You can read my review of the first book in the series here. As soon as I finished it, I could NOT wait for Rebecca's story! It's finally here!
Most days Rebecca Lindt feels like an imposter…
The world admires her as a survivor. But that impression would crumble if people knew her secret. She didn’t deserve to be the one who got away. But nothing can change the past, so she’s thrown herself into her work. She can’t dwell if she never slows down.
Wes Garrett is trying to get back on his feet after losing his dream restaurant, his money, and half his damn mind in a vicious divorce. But when he intervenes in a mugging and saves Rebecca—the attorney who helped his ex ruin him—his simple life gets complicated.
Their attraction is inconvenient and neither wants more than a fling. But when Rebecca’s secret is put at risk, both discover they could lose everything, including what they never realized they needed: each other
She laughed and kissed him. This morning she'd melted down. But somehow this man had her laughing and turned on only a few hours later. Everything inside her felt buoyed.
She'd forgotten what that felt like.
*Sigh* So many feels!
The One You Can't Forget is about figuring out who you are and realizing that it's okay if that's not who everyone else thinks you should be. It's also okay to change your path if you realize where you thought you wanted to go isn't where your heart is.
And sometimes, you need a furry friend to show the way. There's a dog in the story. This isn't a reference to the hero.
The summary of my review is just this: READ IT!
The opening scene is hilarious. Then it's scary and intense. Then it's sweet. Then it's sad. Then... Just read it so we can talk about it!
