A fresh new contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestseller Roni Loren
Twelve years ago, tragedy struck the senior class of Long Acre High School. Only a small number of students survived, a group the media dubbed as The Ones Who Got Away.
Now, web designer Liv Arias, along with the rest of the survivors, have returned to the small Texas town to tell their stories for a documentary. Which means Liv seeing former star-athlete and old flame Finn Dorsey. A lot happened between them that night and Liv is ready to end their decade-long riff and move on. But when her attempt at closure turns into a steamy kiss, moving on proves much more difficult than either of them thought…
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. The smooth face was now dusted with scruff, and the look in his deep green eyes held no trace of boyish innocence. A thousand things were in those eyes. A thousand things welled up in Liv.
The Ones Who Got Away is a tragic story. When your last year of High School the only thing you should be worried about are SATs, and life after High School. However, for a few attending Long Acre High School, anything was but life as usual.
Only a small number of students survived the massacre that occurs. And now a decade later, a documentary is being made to document what those few survivors are up to now.
This was a gripping tale, especially what is going on in the world today. I certainly connected with the characters in this second chance at love romance. Roni Loren did an excellent job of handling the sore subject matter.
I will recommend this story to any readers who enjoy angst before the characters see their HEA
