Review 'The One You Can't Forget' by Roni Loren


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/36568029-the-one-you-can-t-forget
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 felt...light.

She'd forgotten what that felt like.

My Review:


‘The One You Can’t Forget’ is the second book in the The Ones Who Got Away series. I read the first book in this series, ‘The One Who Got Away’ in January of this year and completely devoured it. I really loved every single page of that book. So when I was saw the second book ‘The One You Can’t Forget’ on Netgalley, I just knew I had to request that book. And I was super excited when I found out I was approved to read this book. 

In ‘The One You Can’t Forget’ we meet Rebecca Lindt. Rebecca is one of the survivors of the Long Acre High Shooting and ever since High School Rebecca worked hard to get where she is today. Rebecca is a successful divorce attorney and working hard to become partner in her dads law firm. Rebecca works long hours and doesn’t have a lot of free time. But that’s the way she likes it. Free time makes you think about stuff. And that’s the last thing she wants. 
When Rebecca meets Wes Garrett he is everything she doesn’t want. Divorced, a troublesome past and an alcohol problem. But the attraction between Rebecca and Wes is immediate. And although they both don’t want it.. they can’t stay away from each other.

Since I loved the first book in this series, I had very high expectations of the second book. And I was definitely not disappointed. Rebecca and Wes are both two great characters I loved getting to know. Although it seems they have nothing in common, they connect with each other from the moment they met. The attraction is instant and the chemistry between them is just addicting to read about. I loved how they slowly got to know each other better and how they both made each other better. 

This series is just one of those I can’t seem to get enough of. I love the characters, the story lines and the emotions, and I just want to read more. Although this book is the second book in the series, you can read it as a standalone. But I’m glad I was able to read the first book first, just so I knew a little more about the shooting.

My Rating:


About the Author:


Roni wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven’t improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has. She holds a master’s degree in social work and spent years as a mental health counselor, but now she writes full time from her cozy office in Dallas, Texas where she puts her characters on the therapy couch instead. She is a two-time RITA Award winner and a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.

I requested this book on Netgalley.
