Most days Rebecca Lindt feels like an imposter…
The world admires her as a survivor. But that impression would crumble if people knew her secret. She didn’t deserve to be the one who got away.But nothing can change the past, so she’s thrown herself into her work. She can’t dwell if she never slows down.

Wes Garrett is trying to get back on his feet after losing his dream restaurant, his money, and half his damn mind in a vicious divorce. But when he intervenes in a mugging and saves Rebecca—the attorney who helped his ex ruin him—his simple life gets complicated.

Their attraction is inconvenient and neither wants more than a fling. But when Rebecca’s secret is put at risk, both discover they could lose everything, including what they never realized they needed: each other

She laughed and kissed him. This morning she'd melted down. But somehow this man had her laughing and turned on only a few hours later. Everything inside her felt buoyed.

She felt…light.

She'd forgotten what that felt like.

My Thoughts

Roni Loren makes it easy to fall in love with her characters and their stories. I was introduced to her writing with the first book in The Ones Who Got Away Series and I am hooked! I couldn’t wait to pick up this book and dig in. THE ONE YOU CAN’T FORGET is the perfect balance of serious and swoony and I absolutely loved it!

What I Liked:

  • I liked when the friends reconnected with their Bitching Brunches
  • The support and admiration Wes and Rebecca had for each other
  • Wes’s profession and how it was worked into the storyline - there’s just something about a chef
  • Rebecca’s decisiveness. She’s a force to be reckoned with.
  • The heat and the playful chemistry between Wes and Rebecca
  • The idea second and third chances are possible
As it is with any book, we bring our own experiences to reading and parts of this book were difficult for me to read. I felt a connection to Rebecca that I wasn’t expecting to experience. I could relate to her flashbacks and her fears and her confusion. But this didn’t keep me from enjoying the book, instead, it made my think, “Man, this author gets it.”

I really liked THE ONE YOU CAN’T FORGET and am looking forward to more books in this series!
