The One You Can’t Forget estava entre os lançamentos mais esperados por mim em junho. Eu amei o 1º livro dessa série e estava bem curiosa/ansiosa para saber mais sobre a história da Rebecca.

Eu gostei dos personagens, cada um com seus defeitos, enfrentando suas lutas diárias, medos e erros do passado.

Gostei também de como a autora desenvolveu o relacionamento dos dois e como os sentimentos foram ganhando forma e força no decorrer da história.

Rebecca Lindt is a successful divorce attorney and a survivor of the Long Acre school shooting which has left her with a lot of baggage. Right after the shooting Rebecca was determined to live her life to the fullest in honor of the ones that didn’t make it, but things haven’t turned out exactly as planned. Her life takes a turn when she’s rescued and cared for by Wes Garrett after a mugging-gone-wrong.

In The Ones Who Got Away we learned about the vicious shooting that happened twelve years ago at a high school, that changed the life over everyone who was either a student or teacher and their loved ones. Rebecca Lindt is a survivor. You should think she has endured enough but when she walks home from her work as a divorce attorney one evening all her memories about that horrific day come rushing back when she is being mugged at gun point. A brave dog and a courageous man save her and this actu

I have been eagerly awaiting the release of The One You Can't Forget ever since I read The Ones Who Got Away. Roni Loren totally won me over with the first book in this series and I was desperate for more so once this baby hit my Kindle on release day, I grabbed a box of tissues and flipped to the first chapter.

The One You Can't Forget follows Rebecca Lindt, one of the Long Acre High School survivors who is still haunted by the tragic night that changed her life. Now a divorce lawyer, Rebecca ha
I was really hoping I'd feel the love for this series with THE ONE YOU CAN'T FORGET but once again we're just shy of it. So close but still not quite there. I can definitely say that in a lot of ways this second in The Ones Who Got Away series of connected stories is the stronger of the two as far as flow and plot. But what brought my rating down, and raised many a frustration, were the side characters working against our leads.

The One You Can't Forget was a magnificent book featuring an amazing romance between an unlikely pairing and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Rebecca Lindt feels more and more like an impostor with each passing day feeling she didn't deserve to survive when so many others didn't during that fateful night twelve years ago. Known to the world as a Long Acre survivor, Rebecca prefers to keep her head down and focus on her work. While walking home late one evening after a long day at the office, Rebecca is m

The One You Can't Forget is the second book in The Ones Who Got Away series. Technically, since it features a different couple from the first book, it can standalone. However, I think I would recommend reading them in order as you don't get much of a backstory if you read them out of order. Personally, I felt like I needed to know what happened to these kids when they were in high school (I felt like I was missin

When I read the first book in this series, I knew it was going to be a special series. I knew that in time the four girls (now women) who formed a bond during therapy after a high school tragedy all had their own demons to wrestle. I knew that for each one of them putting their past behind them was near impossible, but finding someone they trusted enough to share the load would hopefully lead them to a happier adulthood. I knew I would shed some tears and I also knew that I trusted author Roni L

I admit that I was intrigued by the premise of The One You Can’t Forget by Roni Loren. I mean, I wondered how a relationship between the hero’s ex-wife’s divorce attorney would pan out. I was not disappointed! This was an emotional read and had all the #feels. Also, there is food involved and a scruffy black dog, so A++ on that!

The One You Can’t Forget is the second book in The Ones Who Got Away series. If you haven’t read the first book, The Ones Who Got Away, I recommend that you do. It is not

I’ve been looking forward to the next book in the Long Acre crew and this was an enjoyable, if somewhat lighter offering from the interconnected characters in this series.

Rebecca is still guilt-ridden over Long Acre and she’s lived a quiet, yet ambitious life pursuing law. She remains intermittently traumatised by her experiences and meets Wes through a situation that is traumatic and triggering. Wes was from the opposite side of the tracks to Bec and her non-issue with this was a bon

I've been dying to get my hands on this book!

It's an enjoyable contemporary romance, but I felt like it lacked that extra edge the first one had. The really interesting stuff started happening in the last third of the novel, so instead of adding that something to the book, these things just felt added on and unexplored on a deeper level.
‘The One You Can’t Forget’ isn’t a title that lends itself to easy guessing—one could be forgiven for thinking this is a typical second-chance romance when it really isn’t quite—but the unique context in which school-massacre survivors rebuild their lives brick by brick has put Roni Loren on the book map for me.

For Rebecca Lindt, the woman who’d physically escaped the school shooting, but remains mentally fettered by it years later, ‘The One you Can’t Forget’ is pretty much her story. Despite t

***ARC received for an honest review***

My biggest issue with contemporary romances is that the problems tend to arise in two arenas - either the family or all in the characters' heads. I'm not even being facetious as I ask this question - you're busy and lonely and in a dating slump. You meet a gorgeous man with whom you have amazing sex (it really is important in a relationship), whom you admire, with whom you love spending time, and you evolve this healthy respectful relationship. Good, right?

I enjoyed this book quite a lot it was not not what I was expecting. I was expecting this book to be like the first one which dealt with a lot of emotional topics. This book had a lighter tone and the relationship was slower and more fun. I highly recommend this series but I do have to warn you guys: this deals with a school shooting and a case of abuse. If you are sentive to those topics you have been warned. I highly recommend it though😉😊

I fell in love with this series after reading the first book, The Ones Who Got Away. The series follow a group of friends who were deeply affected by a tragic event that happened in high school when a classmate open fired during prom and how it has affected their lives ever since.

We first met Rebecca in the first book and I instantly loved her and was so excited to dig deeper into her character with her own story. She was very mature and selfle

I've come to expect great things from any book by Roni Loren. She always has a strong plot with great characters who have amazing chemistry!

I was interested in learning about Rebecca's story after meeting her in The Ones Who Got Away . She had a chance to become a nuisance to Liv and Finn but she didn't. Instead, she was there to support them.

In The One You Can't Forget, Rebecca is still working long hours and helping her father with his campaign. She's a divorce lawyer who has plenty of clie

This is only my second read from Roni Loren, and I'm jumping into a series already in progress. The One You Can't Forget is the second installment of The Ones Who Got Away. I haven't read the first book, and I felt like this one worked okay as a standalone. The series focuses on a group of heroines (and the hero of the first book), who are survivors of a mass shooting at Long Acre High School. The stories take place 10-15 years later, and our heroines are a close group of professional women livi
The first book in this series was SO GOOD and I was in love with the romance between two high school shooting survivors. I really enjoyed Rebecca's character and couldn't wait to see her have her own happy ending in this book!

The second installment in a contemporary romance series about a group of four adult women who survived a school shooting and are still dealing with the aftermath. After the intro to them all in the first book, I was eager to get each of their stories and how they find a way to make it through and find romance. This was sized up to be a real lulu with Rebecca Lindt being the divorce lawyer representing the hero's ex. Warily and curiously, I began the book.

I was totally WOW'ed by the first book in the series with this weirdly not so much. Heroine is a type-A super successful lawyer who runs over backward to please her never pleased father while dealing with the tragedy that happened years ago. When she is mugged the hero comes to her rescue and she recognizes him as someone she was on the opposing side off and helped his ex get a good settlement from. She also thinks he is a cheater with anger issues but of course that misunderstanding i

Rebecca Lindt is a survivor of the Long Acre school shooting. She's a successful divorce attorney, who seems to be content with her lot in life. One evening she gets mugged at gun point and is rescued by Wesley Garrett, the ex-husband of one of Rebecca's clients. That one night, just like her prom night, changes Rebecca's life. Wes is also dealing with starting over and finding his way again after he lost everything important to him.

Together these two embark on a journey they didn't expect and
This second book featuring now adult survivors of a high school prom shooting by Roni Loren is very well done. I didn't like it better than the first but at least as much as. In this one, Rebecca Lindt, now a 31 year old divorce attorney, is still trying to find her way 13 years later. The upcoming documentary on the crime (see book 1 for more details) and her recent mugging has brought many old wounds, physical and emotional, to the surface. She meets Wes in a particularly bad moment only to re ...more

Roni Loren has fast become a favorite author for me. Her book The Ones Who Got Away struck a chord with me and I was eagerly anticipating the follow-up companion novel, The One You Can't Forget. While slightly different in tone from the first book, The One You Can't Forget was another stellar read from Roni Loren. This is definitely a book that's going to my re-read pile.

As soon as I finished The Ones Who Got Away, I began the countdown for The One You Can't Forget. I was fortunate to get an eARC and I dove in pretty much the second I got my hands on it. I was so curious about Rebecca's story from the lead up in the first book. Plus, I really just wanted more of this series in general. It's such an interesting concept and one that's quite relatable and timely. I fell totally in love with Rebecca and Wes and their

Do I even have to say it? Okay. Yes, of course, I enjoyed The One You Can't Forget! I was eager to get Rebecca's story for two reasons: 1) I wanted to know what she was hiding and why she felt so much guilt, and 2) I had major love for the way she handled the awkward situation in the previous book with Olivia and Finn.

Rebecca and Wes are opposites in many ways, yet they are a perfect fit. There was definitely a recipe for disaster because of the role Rebecca played in Wes losing everything. I

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.
