the one that got away

The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel

Publisher: Penguin

Publication Date: August 11th, 2016


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…


Why am I waiting?

When I first read the blurb I couldn’t help but think this would be a perfect romantic movie, if it ever gets to be filmed.

I can’t recall when was the last time I read a book about two old lovers meeting again after more then few years, and to be honest, I kind of feel like I need that kind of story in my life.

That is why I simply can’t wait to read The One That Got Away.

Plus, the cover is just too cute!!

  1. While this does seem like a story that’s been done a dozen times I just love the simplicity of the love story! It’s sounds both parts heartbreaking and uplifting and I already am rooting for the two to get together after all that time!

  2. This sounds exactly like the sort of light-hearted chicklit books I love, Great pick. And you’re right – this would make a great movie!
