Fresh Fiction Review

The Ones Who Got Away
Roni Loren

Reviewed by Diana Troldahl
Posted January 16, 2018

Romance Contemporary

THE ONES WHO GOT AWAY is about the value of friendship, living life, and taking chances by two-time Rita Award winner Roni Loren. (You may already be familiar with her Loving On the Edge series.)

This first in a new series leavens what could be a dark story fraught with psychological trauma with humor and grit. Liv Arias' pressure cooker career leaves her little time and space to grow, while Finn Dorsey's undercover job puts his life on the edge of disaster every single day. All the characters around whom the series is based are bound by the memory of a school shooting. How they are still working to rebuild their lives twelve years later creates an intricate and engrossing tale.

Although my normal reading list includes perhaps three fantasy or science fiction books for every contemporary novel, I flat out loved THE ONES WHO GOT AWAY. Roni Loren is a gifted writer who creates marvelously three-dimensional characters whose every move and decision ring with truth. Perhaps it is her masters degree in social work or her years spent as a mental health counselor that provide those details, but however she does it, she has won a new fan, in me.

Twelve years ago, Long Acre High School was struck by a tragedy that still haunts the small Texas town today. On a cool spring night, two gunmen walked into prom and ended the lives of many of the senior class. Only a small number of students survived—a group the media dubbed as The Ones Who Got Away…

Web designer (and former Goth chick) Liv Arias is ready to end the decade-long riff with her old flame and move on. Even though he almost got her killed, she knows it was every kid for themselves that night. But when her attempt at closure with former star-athlete Finn Dorsey turns into a steamy kiss, moving on proves much more difficult than either of them thought…
