the one you cant forget roni loren

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.

Rebecca Lindt has been going through the daily grind ever since she survived the horrific high school shooting that made her and her friends some sort of heroic survivors. She has been holding in what happened to her and the people in that school for a long time. Her world resembles some sort of normalcy and perfection but it is everything but that.

Wes Garrett lost every single thing in the divorce. He now works odd jobs trying to put back the pieces of what is left of his life. Wes saves Rebecca one night and he tries to speak a friendship with her. They are from two different worlds but he doesn’t ignore the feelings he gets around her. Too bad, he discovers she is the reason why he lost every single thing.

As the two become friendly, Rebecca discovers that Wes is a great guy. She pitches in to help rebuild his dream. Wes is leery of Rebecca’s endeavors as he doesn’t want to be viewed as a charity case. Rebecca assures him that she just wants to help.

The connection with Wes and Rebecca is strong. I loved that he looked at Rebecca for who she was. He saw past her physical and emotional scars. He was there for her.  I had a hard time getting to know Rebecca. She was frightened for most of the book and I got it. She has been through so much in life.

There is something about the way the author explained Rebecca’s secret and what happened to her in the shooting that left me wanting to get the full picture of what really went down that tragic day. In the first book, the author explained but we were learning through another couple’s eyes and they had tremendous guilt. This was different. Something was missing that I couldn’t connect to.

Rebecca’s father was a piece of work. Her whole life she had strived for excellency as he drilled into her. He barely could allow her any moment of happiness. I really despised him after he threatened her. Wes’s brother was only a bit more tolerable.

I am looking forward to reading other books in this series.
