After reading, “The One You Can’t Forget” (Book 2 in The Ones Who Got Away series), I’ve added Roni Loren to my list of favorite romance authors. This book hooked me from the beginning with the ideal combination of solid writing, realism, quirky dialogue, difficult situations, and sexy tension, and kept me hooked all the way through.
I don’t want to spoil it, so I’ll say nothing more than this book has one of the best, most cringe inducing set ups ever. So much delicious tension leading to the reveal and so much discomfort when lawyer Rebecca recognizes chef Wes, and a short while later when he realizes who she is—and they each realize they’re attracted to the other anyway.

Fun, engaging, and satisfying, this book gave me all the feels. I was definitely rooting for Rebecca and Wes to get together, and I think you will too.
