The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren

Title: The Ones Who Got Away

Series: The Ones Who Got Away Book #1

Stand Alone Title: yes
Author: Roni Loren

Genre: Romance, Contemporary

Blurb: 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…

Favorite quote(s): “You yourself said that kiss was a mistake.  So don’t come prancing around here half dresses with your Batman abs and talking about where to put my hands.  No one likes a tease, Dorsey.”

Thoughts: This wasn’t your typical Roni Loren – the vibe felt a little different to me, but in a refreshing sort of way.  Something a little different and distinctive.  This is the first book I have read that surrounds/involves a past school shooting, and it tackles it in a sensitive way.  I enjoyed the story of these two characters and the book immediately captures your attention and interest.  I am looking forward to more in this series!
