Sarina Mahler is nervously excited when she hears that her one and only one-night-stand is back in Austin and will be making an appearance at the party. Even though Sarina is *this* close to getting engaged to her boyfriend of four years, Noah, the thought of seeing Eamon Roy again stirs something deep inside of her. She never expected the night they spent together to be a one night stand, but the hotshot swimmer had other plans. And now that he is back he wants Sarina's help finding and renovating a home in Austin so he can put down roots. Against her better judgement Sarina agrees to take the job, but soon realizes that spending that much time with Eamon only stirs up the feelings she once had and makes her examine her relationship with Noah. Is he really the one for her or is The One That Got Away her future?
The One That Got Away is one of those books that is like chocolate for the soul. A mindless book that is a page turner with a "happy-ever-after" ending. I loved the character of Sarina and her relationship with her roommate Danny, their banter and witty comments made me feel like they were people that I could easily hang out with. The comparison between Noah and Eamon is pretty stark, even the way that Sarina interacts with each man is wildly different. Her demeanor changes, I think, and it is a clear indication of which way her heart is going to go. In the end she goes with her heart and I was very pleased with her choice.
Bottom line - The One That Got Away is definitely a fluffy kind of read. Sarina is funny, intelligent, and witty. And so are the people she surrounds herself with. Definitely a fun read.

I am an avid reader who loves to read and will read anything put in front of me. I started this blog long before Goodreads
I have been tangled in a web of books for many, many years. I created this blog before Goodreads was around to keep track of the books I have read. Since it's inception I have reviewed almost 1,000 books.
