There were only a few survivors of that one fateful night. Now, twelve years later, the kids once called The Ones Who Got Away are back…and ready to claim the lives they never truly got to live.
• The goth girl and the popular boy
• The best friends turned something more
• Sworn enemies in love
• The hot nerd and the life of the party
• And their second chance to get things right
Liv Arias thought she'd never return to Long Acre—until a documentary brings her and the other survivors back home. Suddenly her old flame, Finn Dorsey, is closer than ever, and their attraction is still white-hot. When a searing kiss reignites their passion, Liv realizes this rough-around-the-edges man might be exactly what she needs…
Liv's words cut off as Finn got closer. The man approaching was nothing like the boy she'd known. The bulky football muscles had streamlined into a harder, leaner package and the look in his deep green eyes held no trace of boyish innocence.
Summer reading at its finest! Readers are raving about this white-hot, deeply emotional survival romance:
"Phenomenal. Gets my highest recommendation!"—LORELEI JAMES, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author
"Unforgettable… Roni Loren at her best!"—KRISTEN CALLIHAN, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author
"Unique, swoony, and lively. The Ones Who Got Away is the best kind of second-chance romance!"—SARINA BOWEN, USA Today bestselling author
"The Ones Who Got Away is EXACTLY what I love in romance; angsty, hot, conflicted, funny! Roni Loren delivers on all of it! Don't let this book get away!"—M. O'KEEFE, USA Today bestselling author
Loren's tender romance about former high school sweethearts who survived a mass shooting at their senior prom is regrettably timely. It's been 12 years since Olivia "Liv" Arias laid eyes on Finn Dorsey, who's now an FBI agent, and she's hoping her luck will hold long enough to avoid him now. He jilted her to take another girl to the prom, and then took a bullet for his date. But she's agreed to be interviewed for a documentary recalling the tragedy, and so has Finn. As soon as they see each other, memories of their adolescent love affair come flooding back. During an extended stay in their small Texas hometown, where the documentary is being filmed, an adult love affair grows and helps them both heal old emotional wounds. A small cast of credible supporting characters, all dealing with their own grief, lends gravity without becoming maudlin. Loren writes movingly about the long-term effects of violent trauma on survivors in this warmhearted romance.
I don’t have an in-depth review, but these characters were well thought out and I got caught up in the story. Thanks!
Good book, but won’t read the next
I enjoyed this book. The story is unlike any romance novel out there. Unfortunately, due to the high price of the next books, I won’t continue to read the series. $8 is ridiculously expensive.
You won’t regret reading this book!!
Wonderfully written. It keeps you pulled in the entire time. 5 stars!!!!
