The Ones Who Got Away (The Ones Who Got Away, #1)

Liv's words cut off as Finn got closer. The man approaching was nothing like the boy she'd known.

Only a few students survived that fateful night—a group the media dubbed The Ones Who Got Away.Liv Arias thought she'd n...

  • Melissa
    A few years back, I picked up a novella from Roni Loren—the sweet and sassy, Nice Girls Don't Ride—but for some reason never found myself crossing paths with any of her full length novels until The Ones Who Got Away caught my eye. I love nothing more than pages packed with emotion and perseverance—I think I might've mentioned a time or two that I’m an optimist at heart—and I felt like this author delivered with Olivia and Finn's heart-w...

    4.5 StarsIt’s like it’s all just sitting there, waiting to remind me how we can never really escape it. How the ones who got away never really get away.Twelve years ago, the students of Long Acre high were enjoying what was supposed to be one of the happiest nights of their lives when tragedy struck. Instead of prom night being remembered for the so-so music or the questionable fashion choices, two students chose to make sure that particular ...

    COMING OUT SOON! So, here it is, a second chance romance with a reasonable (and remarkable) reason for the separation of the couple. Forget all about family secrets, or stolen letters or empty misunderstandings because this is serious. And, unfortunately, pretty damn relatable nowadays!Olivia and Finn were secretly high-school sweethearts, twelve-years ago, when their school was attacked by two armed kids. Most of their friends were killed in the...

    Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books✮✮✮ 4 STARS ✮✮✮ Doesn’t this blurb sound like a super angsty story? Yeah? Wanna know if it was? Read on!I’ll tell you right away, this is my first Roni Loren book, another one of those authors I have been meaning to read but never gotten around until The Ones Who Got Away. It was the blurb that I found so intriguing that I wanted to jump in and give this author a chance. Not regretting it. Nope. So l...

    THE ONES WHO GOT AWAY has the makings of an excellent series. Book one, of the same name, builds some of the background but focuses in on Liv and Finn. The characters, both main and side are survivors of a high school trauma and remain affected into their 30s. The book started off with an intense bang and slowly but surely lost a bit of traction, leaving a lull. I have still rated it four stars because by 40% it had grabbed by attention fully. Th...

    I just read a sneak peek of this book, a few chapters, and I cannot wait to see how the story will further unfold. What I read was very intriguing, well written, and there was an underlying sense of mystery throughout. The story seems to have a lot of potential, I am very interested to see what Mrs. Loren has done with it.Too bad we gotta wait till January for the full book.

    Liv and Finn had a secret romance back in high school that was obliterated when a school shooting tears their lives apart. There’s more to their story than what was made public, a reality that hurt both Liv and Finn. Twelve years later they are reunited with the other survivors, and the old raging chemistry they felt before is stirred up again, but can they get past the damage the shooting and their actions caused?The setup here sounded amazing...

    Mini review:I received this E-Sampler via the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I requested this on a whim on Netgalley. I didn't really have any expectations. Just wanted to give it a go. Man am I happy I read it! It was surprisingly enjoyable! Will definitely be getting the full copy next year. Highly recommend.
