ARC Review: The One for You by Roni Loren

The One for You (The Ones Who Got Away, #4)From the blurb:

Kincaid Breslin wasn't supposed to survive that fateful night at Long Acre when so many died, including her boyfriend—but survive she did. She doesn't know why she got that chance, but now she takes life by the horns and doesn't let anybody stand in her way

Ashton Isaacs was her best friend when disaster struck all those years ago, but he chose to run as far away as he could. Now fate has brought him back to town, and Ash doesn't know how to cope with his feelings for Kincaid and his grief over their lost friendship. For Ash has been carrying secrets, and he knows that once Kincaid learns the truth, he'll lose any chance he might have had with the only woman he's ever loved

Heather's rating:

The One for You is my favorite Roni Loren to date. Fans of this emotional series will be thrilled with this one.

Reading this series is always a bit rough for me. School shooting are too real, too serious, and what does it say about our country that every time one of these books comes out, another school shooting has just happened. But Roni Loren manages to take something horrible and make a beautiful story out of it.

I'm not always a huge fan of books that rely heavily on flashbacks, but it worked here. I still preferred the parts taking place in present times, but I didn't mind the flashbacks, and I thought they provided some useful insight into the characters.

The story was a good mix of friends-to-lovers and enemies-to-lovers as these two have a LOT of shared, sordid history between them. There was a tension, a dynamic there that I really liked, and the chemistry between the two MCs was so thick it jumped off the page.

The story was long but really well plotted. I stayed up really late (2:00 am!) to finish. I just wanted to read one more page, but then I needed to see how things would turn out. I liked how both characters had their flaws, but the story didn't rely on silly misunderstandings or easy plot points to propel it forward.

A powerful story that doesn't delve too deep into sadness, I think The One for You is Roni Loren's best romance yet.
