    ★ 4 stars!!! ★ 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 ...

    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 bra...

    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 ...

    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.Rebecca Lindt has ...

    Release Date: June 5, 2018 Genre: Contemporary Romance Actual Rating: 3.75 starsThe 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 t...

    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 ...

    3.5-4 starsI’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 t...

    I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I've been dying to get my hands on this book! I fell in love with the group of characters in this series with the first book and was compelled to read more.  Itching to get my hands on it actually.  This is the story of the high school girlfriend of the hero from the first book and yes one of the...

    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 lat...

    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 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,...

    ***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 ...

    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'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 campai...

    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 her...

    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...lo...

    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 ...

    3.25 starsI 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 ...

    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.Years after the horrific Long Acre High School shooting that killed Rebecca'...

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 f...

Emotionally charged, passionate, tinged with humor and hope. I enjoyed it thoroughly but that's to be expected from Loren.

    5 stars!!Another breathtakingly beautiful book from Roni Loren! I'm not going to lie, the first book was soooo good that I was worried that my hopes were going to be set a little too high for this one. But NOPE. This was just as beautiful and wonderful as a love story as The Ones Who Got Away. Rebecca is a survivor of the Long Acre shooting that happened during her senior year of high school. Since then she has always dealt with a level of gui...

    ‘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 had me from the first chapter. This romance features a couple with great banter and lots of sexiness as they find their way to love through their own pain.I wasn't a huge fan of the first book in this series of interconnected stand-alones, but I enjoyed this one immensely, so much that I read the first 65% in one sitting and woke up the next morning to read more before work. I love that feeling of "OMG I can't wait to rea...
