“Roni Loren once again swept me off my feet and I got wrapped up in the beauty of her words and the emotions her characters convey.”
~ Under the Covers

I’ve been dying to get my hands on this book! I fell in love with the group of characters in this series with the first book and was compelled to read more.  Itching to get my hands on it actually.  This is the story of the high school girlfriend of the hero from the first book and yes one of the Long Acre survivors.  She’s grown up to be a successful attorney and working for her father.  done everything he thinks best for her without much complain.  But she’s left behind actually living.

I’m not sure if Rebecca was the most emotionally damaged from the group, but she was certainly carrying a lot of baggage aside from the survivors guilt.  It takes quite some time before the reader finds out what was weighing on her and it certainly broke my heart.   It brings up a whole different side from the aftermath of the school shooting that we didn’t get to see in the first book.  Rebecca is also a very different character and there’s both a strength and extreme vulnerability to her that I couldn’t look away from.

Then there’s Wes.  First of all…. sexy, tatted chef with a tortured past.  How can you not fall for him?  The fact that these two had history and their relationship can start with some animosity they have to overcome was nice.  But I couldn’t have been rooting for them more.  Wes handles Rebecca in just the right way.  Pushing just when needed and knowing when not to.  There’s a lot of healing that has to happen in this book and I for one think that Wes was the perfect partner to help Rebecca through it.

While THE ONE YOU CAN’T FORGET felt a little less intense than the first book, it was no less compelling and heartbreaking.  The romance is sexy, the story is consuming.  I didn’t want to put it down.  Roni Loren once again swept me off my feet and I got wrapped up in the beauty of her words and the emotions her characters convey.  I experience this every time I crack open one of her books and I can’t wait for my next fix.

About Roni Loren

Roni wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven’t improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has. Though she’ll forever be a New Orleans girl at heart, she now lives in Dallas with her husband and son.

If she’s not working on her latest sexy story, you can find her reading, watching reality television, or indulging in her unhealthy addiction to rockstars, er, rock concerts. Yeah, that's it. She is the National Bestselling Author of The Loving on the Edge series from Berkley Heat.
