The Ones Who Got Away
The Ones Who Got Away | Roni Loren
A fresh new contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestseller Roni Loren that will rock your world. Twelve years ago, tragedy struck the senior class of Long Acre High School. Only a small number of students survived, a group the media dubbed as The Ones Who Got Away. Now, web designer Liv Arias, along with the rest of the survivors, have returned to the small Texas town to tell their stories for a documentary. Which means Liv seeing former star-athlete and old flame Finn Dorsey. A lot happened between them that night and Liv is ready to end their decade-long riff and move on. But when her attempt at closure turns into a steamy kiss, moving on proves much more difficult than either of them thought... 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. The smooth face was now dusted with scruff, and the look in his deep green eyes held no trace of boyish innocence. A thousand things were in those eyes. A thousand things welled up in Liv. Praise for Roni Loren: "Addictive and intense."RT Book Reviews for Nothing Between Us "The romance is...emotionally satisfying...and the characters are worth rooting for."Publishers Weekly for Not Until You "What really sets this story apart is the emotional connection between the characters. As they both heal from their pasts, they grow together as a couple."RT Book Reviews for Caught up in You

This was fantastic. A slow burn, female friendship, and healing from trauma make for one of the best second chance romances I've ever read.

A first for me by this author. Still thinking on it, not sure it was for me. The premise was difficult, kids who survived a school shooting find each other 10 years later and fall in love. Well written, just a tough hill to climb for an HEA. I may try another of hers, but not for a bit.

Just finished the #BoundByHallowsBookClub June pick and I loved it!!! Quick, simple read that had me rooting for Liv and Finn. I‘m pumped to read the rest of the series and I adored the friendship these four girls created following the tragedy.

12 years after surviving a school shooting, Some of the survivors meet again for a documentary. Finn and Liv haven‘t seen each other since graduation and all the old feelings come rushing back.

This started out string with the school shooting and seeing how the survivors were still dealing with what happened to them, then it drifts off to a romance. The romance was great but I think some of the scenes went too long.

⭐️⭐️⭐️

This second chance #romantsy between secret high school sweethearts who survived a school shooting wasn‘t quite what I expected. It started off strong with the reunion & back story then fell into a rather predictable & bland romance. The end was better but the story didn‘t quite live up to the promise of the premise & the beginning. Good but could have been great. I am interested to see how book 2 goes.

You know people mean no harm but at the same time they do it as a courtesy, not because they really want to hear your sorry-a$$ story of a life 😔😢

This ended up being my first read of 2018 because it releases tomorrow and I need to review it but I have no regrets about how I started the year. I like Roni Loren and will try anything she writes. This #romantsy about the survivors of a school shooting was nothing like I was afraid it would be. I loved the bonds the surviving girls forged and appreciated the focus on their strength and healing. The romance was a tad too tidy but still worked.

"It's been 12 years since tragedy struck the senior class of Long Acre High School. Only a few students survived that fateful night..." Well *there* is an intriguing premise for a "white hot" romance! #mynovbookmail

I'm starting another ARC. Probably do most of my reading of it later in the weekend. Peri gets knee surgery tomorrow (she tore a ligament in her back knee) and a niece and nephew are staying with me tomorrow night. Pic is of Peri and her best bud Ava from our walk tonight. #romantsy

robinb Best wishes for Peri! 5y
xicanti Poor Peri! I hope her surgery goes well. 5y
AmandaL Hope she feels better soon. 5y

Sooo good!! Must have more!
#Netgalley you're a tease.
I have yet to read the entire book, but I was able to read the first part and I was impressed! I will def be reading the rest of the book when it gets released.
The set up to the story is perfect. A high school reunion unlike any other, these classmates reunite for interviews over a school shooting that occurred years ago. Only they survived, only they know what really happened that night.

julesG Sounds promising. I thought about requesting it but didn't want to just read a teaser. 5y
monkeygirlsmama Sounds really good. I hate the sneak peaks because they just leave you hanging. LoL 5y
monkeygirlsmama @julesG Same here. 5y
Ms_T Ooh, I like a good suspense story! 5y
