New to me author & book! I had the pleasure of reading this in paperback, love holding a book!
I really like the story line and characters. Beautiful story of 'if you love it let it go, if it returns it was meant to be yours' because the hero has to give it his all to return his beloved heroine. The writing was smooth and easy connecting. Characters relatable and a funny and sweet story!

A very big thank you to the author & HAPPY READING!
I am giving this book a 4.5 and would recommend it very muc

I. AM. IN. LOVE.
This book had me hooked. I literally couldn’t stop reading for even one second. I pulled an all nighter reading it.
I usually do not like the love triangle trope necessarily but this one was so well done.
The storyline was really good and i connected to the characters. But not only that but her writing was AMAZING and that made my reading experience 100% better.
And this is the author’s debut book, which surprised me.
I definitely recommend that you should read this book ASAP.

This book was amazingly written and it brought me such an enjoyable time.
I loved the characters, especially Charlie’s brothers and Teddy.

Since the story revolves around two brothers in pursuit of one girl, I must say that I was rooting for Nick ever since he gets mentioned. Reading too many romance books has brought me to realize that he liked her ever since they were little, hence he annoyed her into thinking he doesn’t.
Will on the other hand- he always seemed to me as way too arrogant, and of

Before I dive into this review I must thank Marisa for providing me with a copy of this book, which I will treasure forever. It was a heartfelt read that I can't praise enough but I will try to do this impeccable story justice in my review.

Charlie Moreau is a strong willed heroine and at times her decisions may cost her relationships with others but she never let's that deter her.

Her way of life is to follow her heart and mind; after having always followed what others expected of her she is taki

I love reading romance fictions. Recently I read this book "The One That Got Away". It is a romance novel by the author Marisa Scolamiero. The protagonist of the story is Charlie Moreau. She is a small town girl from Belmont, North Carolina. She moved to New York and joined as an assistant magazine editor there. Charlie loved the liveliness of the New York City.

Back in high school, she was so naive to believe that the most popular guy of the school Will Russo liked her. Everyone made fun of her

Note: The author sent me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review so my opinion is 100% honest and not affected by that.


Wow! This was such a fun and amazing story! I absolutely loved the characters, especially Nick! The whole plot was so well thought out and the storyline was so fast paced. I unfortunately read this book during a reading slump and that affected my enjoyment a little but overall this was a great book. Here we have a love triangle (I’m a sucker for love triangles!!!) b

☽ One woman, two brothers.
I'm not really into love triangles because I always feel bad for the one left aside but I really loved this book. The storyline is great and the characters as well, they are so nice and funny and it's super easy to connect with them. My prediction for the ending was wrong because it turned out completly different but I liked it tho.
One thing that surprised me is that this is the first book of the author and as a first book it was really really go

Slow start. Fully involved.

This debut novel starts slow, but the author gets her feet under her within a couple chapters. The characters and relationships are complex. I’m ready for book 2!
