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.
MY BOOKISH SNEAK PEEK:
Wow! And to think I’m not a romance novel reviewer. I’ve never read anything from this author before, but Roni Loren might have pushed me to the dark side! HAHAHAH!Powerful, gripping and edged with just the right amount of friction between Liv and Finn.
A sad and horrific event in the past shatters the lives of all the survivors leaving scars that never really went away. As past and present meet, feelings long forced aside are quickly brought to a head in this smoothly paced, well plotted and enjoyable read.
I can’t wait to finish this novel and give my full review! SHHH, you didn’t hear that from me. I give this peek:
