#BookReview: The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel

the one that got awayAbout the Book

Ruby and Ethan were perfect for each other. Until the day they suddenly weren’t.

Ten years later, Ruby’s single, having spent the last decade focusing on her demanding career and hectic life in Manhattan. There’s barely time for a trip to England for her little sister’s wedding. And there’s certainly not time to think about seeing Ethan there for the first time in years.

But as the family frantically prepare for the big day, Ruby can’t help but wonder if she made the right choice all those years ago? Because there’s nothing like a wedding for stirring up the past . . .

My Review

This book had a little bit of everything that I loved. Likeable main character, a wedding, an England setting… yes please! I really enjoyed not only the dual POV between Ruby and Ethan, but also that we got to get glimpses into the past and see how Ruby and Ethan met, fell in love, and why they fell apart. The secondary cast is fantastic, from Ruby’s family, her bridezilla sister, her bestie, and even the England crew. I was entertained the entire way through, but I won’t lie – when I thought the book was ending, I actually felt my heart sink a little at the resolution I thought we were getting. Thank goodness it wasn’t over yet! For fans of romantic comedy, add this to your list!
