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.

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.

Apesar de ter curtido muito, de ser u

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 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’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

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'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!

Rebecca Lindt has always had a list of goals she had to accomplish to be the best. Now that she's a divorce attorney and working for her father, she's earned the job and the life she wanted. But it's been feeling a bit...lonely. Wes Garrett lost everything during his divor

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.

The storyline is entertaining all throughout the book, I kept telling myself just one more chapter then I'll go to sleep until I ended up reading it in one sitting, I just didn't want to put it down.

This is one of those books that will bring out the feels, Rebecca and Wes are likable, endearing characters that will touch your heart with their story.

I was a little nervous about reading this, given my feelings surrounding school shootings. But this was less about the shooting itself, and more about survival and the long term impact that it has on survivors.

And I really liked this. Roni Loren's writing in this series works for me. It's strange, I don't feel like I've read that many books where the lawyer who inadvertently ruined someone's life ends up involved with them, but I've read two in the last month and a half! And it's a trope I don'

High-powered divorce attorney Rebecca Lindt wants to put her past as a survivor of a high school shooting behind her, but her dad's political aspirations, the upcoming release of a documentary she was interviewed for, and the trauma that resurfaces during a mugging attempt makes it hard to do.

Wes Garrett, once an up-and-coming star chef, lost it all during his divorce. Finally sober and with a job teaching cooking to at-risk youth, Wes also wants to leave his past behind.

Oh Rebecca! I loved loved LOVED The Ones Who Got Away. LOVED IT. So I was super excited when I realized this would be a series! I was a little hesitant about Rebecca because I didn't originally click with her. However, I was pleasantly surprised! I loved Wes, though! He was such a treat to meet and idk why but his gruff attitude got to me good.

I'm so excited for the next book in the series!
