Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you had a lovely holiday and are ready to cozy up with a new read because THE ONES WHO GOT AWAY is finally here!
I've been waiting to share this book with y'all for what seems like forever, and now it's finally out into the world and waiting for you!
This book was probably one of the hardest I've ever had to write, but it may also be the one I'm most proud of because this idea wasn't what anyone would think of as a premise for a romance novel. (A sexy second chance romance that has a backstory of a school shooting tragedy? What?) But I knew in my gut I had to tell this story and that it could be an epic romance if done right, so I pursued it anyway. I needed other believers though, and I found that in the team at Sourcebooks, my editor Cat Clyne, and my agent Sara Megibow. They GOT the idea, like really understood what I was trying to do, and were totally excited about it. And that's more than an author can hope for. So I got to write this first book in a brand new series, and I hope you'll agree with me that it was an idea worth fighting for.

Also, if you read and love it, I'd love you forever if you leave a review on the retailer sites giving your honest opinion. Reviews help more than most people realize and help a series fulfill their destiny and continue on.
And as always, thanks to every one of you who buys this book, requests it at your library, reviews it, reads it and tells a friend. *big hugs to you all*
Now here are the details in case you haven't seen them yet...
A fresh new contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestseller Roni Loren that will rock your world.
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.
