The Ones Who Got Away

The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren Book Summary

“Phenomenal. Gets my highest recommendation!” —LORELEI JAMES, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

It's been twelve years since tragedy struck the senior class of Long Acre High School. Only a few students survived that fateful night—a group the media dubbed The Ones Who Got Away.
Liv Arias thought she'd never return to Long Acre—until a documentary brings her and the other survivors back home. Suddenly her old flame, Finn Dorsey, is closer than ever, and their attraction is still white-hot. When a searing kiss reignites their passion, Liv realizes this rough-around-the-edges cop might be exactly what she needs…
Liv's words cut off as Finn got closer. The man approaching was nothing like the boy she'd known. The bulky football muscles had streamlined into a harder, leaner package and the look in his deep green eyes held no trace of boyish innocence.

- Long1 star

Got bored with all the fluff

- 3D characters with troubles deserving the angst5 star

The characters are messy and complicated, like real people. Unlike many romance novels, neither character is stupidly avoiding the obvious choice. They have real problems and fears to overcome on their path to love.

- The Ones Who Got Away5 star

Well written heartfelt story- so glad I downloaded it- Libby & Finn we’re both easy to love - I 100% recommend this book

- Good book, but won’t read the next4 star

I enjoyed this book. The story is unlike any romance novel out there. Unfortunately, due to the high price of the next books, I won’t continue to read the series. $8 is ridiculously expensive.

- The Ones that got Away5 star

Soooo good!! You will want to read this one!! :)

- Wow!5 star

Wow! This was my first Roni Loren book. I don't always read blurbs, but I'm a sucker for a second chance romance where the main characters have a complicated history, so I went for it. Wow! Such an amazing story! Two people, Olivia and Finn, who went through a tragedy in high school and meet many years later, each still working through the repercussions of the event. There was the typical will-they-won't-they and it's-just-temporary, but they had a fresh spin. Ms. Loren writes a really good sexy scene, and the book really moved along. I also enjoyed getting to know the secondary characters, like Rebecca, Taryn and Kincaid, whose stories are hopefully going to be told in future books.

- Great!!!!!!5 star

This book was wonderfully written. I didn’t want to put it down and I’m thrilled that it’s the beginning of a series. I’ve got the month of June marked for the next book. So excited!

- Meh3 star

I've love Roni's other books but this one drags on a bit. Interesting plot line and characters but I was flipping pages to get to the end.

- Superstar5 star

I have loved every book Loren has put out but this is one of my faves. She does such a wonderful job on such a sad but relevant topic. It’s heartwarming to see that people can rise from the ashes and move towards tomorrow.

- Survivors’ Guilt5 star

Wow! This book grabbed me from the start and wouldn’t let go! I don’t normally read contemporary love stories, or any kind of love unless it is paranormal or erotica, but when I read the blurb about survivors of a school shooting I thought it sounded really interesting. I noticed the reviews with 3 Stars were mainly thinking this was more just a romance and thought it had too much of the violence or story about shooting. Some thought it was too insta-love with Finn and Liv. I think I liked it because there was more story about events that happened in, not only Finn and Liv’s lives, but also those who survived and became friends with her afterwards. The romance was a bonus. Liv had moved away and hadn’t talked to anyone who survived since high school. It just brought back too many memories to everyone involved so they just went about their daily lives trying to forget and make the most of it. I feel like that is one thing that has helped them become successful. Live and some other classmates made a pact their senior year to live life to the fullest for the survivors who would never get the chance to follow their dreams. They were determined to make things happen. I also believe this is why Liv ad her friends aren’t married. They never have time because of work and life. I loved the characters and Liv’s friend Kincaid is one of my favorites. I can’t wait to see if she gets a book. I didn’t think Finn and Liv were too insta-love. After all, in high school they were crazy about each other, even if they never mentioned love. At that age, sometimes you’re afraid to because you’re afraid it will ruin what you have. And who has the nerve to be the first to say it? Liv is grasping onto life like she said she would. Trying to be fearless, not reckless. She is, I think, 30 years old now and has never forgotten Finn or felt the same with anyone. It was mentioned in the beginning how Finn was thinking they were both seeing each other as the people they were in high school. The people in the now were totally different. But deep down, the old Finn and Liv were in there. I feel like it was the perfect timing for them. And they could help each other heal.

- [ Insert thunderous applause here ]5 star

[ Insert thunderous applause here ] This book was AMAZING. Yes, it deals with a rather heavy topic of a school shooting and the psychological aftermath (but it's totally not a graphic description or anything like that), but the EMOTIONS in this book are off the charts. I LOVED Liv. It's like Roni took all of the obnoxious qualities in the typical contemporary romance heroine and had Liv act the opposite: like a real person. I also couldn't get enough of her sass and the funny things she would say! And Finn. I mean, good gracious. When things got emotionally intense between him and Liv, the things that came out of his fictional mouth blew me away. He's just an all-around stand-up guy who happens to be five-alarm hot. And the ending! Sigh...this is absolutely a book I would read again, and a solid reminder of how infinitely talented Roni is as an author! But it gets better! I see this is book 1 of a series. In this book, I met several other positively delightful and intriguing heroines, and I am ECSTATIC to read their stories too! (I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)

- Strong, emotional story5 star

I'm a huge Roni Loren fan & this tease of her new book has left me wanting more. Her characters are always strong with a hint of vulnerability & chemistry that would blow the roof off any building they happen to be in. This new book looks to be no different with the heat between Finn & Liv.......I wrote these words back in July when I read the teaser & they are truer now than when I wrote them. The damage caused by their past tragedy has changed the lives of Finn & Liv but it hasn't changed the love they still feel for each other even 12 yrs later. What starts out with a return to their hometown for an interview of the survivors for the charity documentary on the tragedy, turns into a chance for 4 of the survivors to come together & reconnect. It also brings Finn & Liv back to each other. For Finn his life's goal has been to find the people responsible for putting the guns in the hands of the killers, putting himself in danger for years as an undercover FBI agent. Now back in Liv's life, he's stuck between staying with his mission & showing Liv just what she means to him. Liv's life also takes a new direction after old promises come to life & decides to try to make her dreams come true, including her dreams of Finn. With attempts at shedding the past & changing their futures these survivors grow through the experience of opening their teenage promises for the future & a chance to live the lives that they promised their fallen classmates they would. The story was written with strength in the characters, but also with a certain vulnerability that the tragedy has put in their lives. The gravitational pull between Finn & Liv is still so strong & the chemistry between them is still off the charts. The beauty & love coming out of this book is amazing. Definitely recommend this book. I received an ARC from Net Galley for an honest review.

- This is so much more than a love story ... it’s about loss and life after loss!5 star

In high school Finn was the good looking jock who came from money and could have any girl he wanted. Liv came from the other side of the tracks ... her father was Finn's family gardener. Liv lost her mother when she was just a teenager and rebelled with coloring her hair purple and pink, doing and saying whatever she wanted. Finn and Liv were opposites ... but remember that old saying "opposites attract"? Finn was scared to go against his parents, so they kept their relationship a secret. And then at prom, the unthinkable happened ... 2 students got their revenge and shot all the students that were "happy". It was one of the worst school shootings. And what did Finn do? He left Liv in a closet to defend herself while he saved the girl that was his prom date. After the shooting, his family ended up moving to get away from all the media attention. I really liked at the story line about the 4 unlikely girls who became friends through their counselling after the shooting. A year after the shooting they each put a letter in a time capsule that stated their dreams and wishes for their futures. 12 years later, all the survivors are being interviewed for a documentary on the shooting. This is the first time the women have been together since then so they decide to open the time capsule and see which dreams came true. At the interviews, when Finn and Liv lock eyes, all those old feelings come rushing back. But after all this time is it love or lust? Liv got most of her anger out in college by drinking too much and sleeping around, but she still has nightmares. Now all she does is work on website designs ... not the photography she wanted to do back in high school. While Finn joined the FBI and wanted to put those responsible for the students getting the guns behind bars and he's spent the last 2 years deep undercover trying to do just that. They each have deep scars that may never heal. This book is so full of emotions ... you will laugh with them, you will swoon at the love story and you will cry with them. This is a heart wrenching love story that I could just not put down ... I ended up reading till the wee hours of the morning to finish the book. And then I couldn't sleep because I was thinking about it. That is the sign of a GREAT book ... when it sticks with you! I HIGHLY recommend this book! I can't wait for the next book - Rebecca's book. But the one I hope is after that is Kincaid's book ... she just cracked me up. I received an ARC copy courtesy of Sourcebooks Casablanca through NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.
