A fresh new contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today best seller 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....
This author took on a sensitive topic in this story- school shootings. In this book, the hero and heroine are survivors of a massacre at their high school and we find them 12 years later coming back to the school to appear in a documentary about the event. There are interesting characters and a lot of unexpressed guilt among the survivors of the prom night shooting. The hero and heroine were making out in a janitors closet when it began, but they weren’t there as each other’s date. Seeing each other years later wakes up the memories and the attraction that is still there complicates matters too. Narration is done fairly well, but this audiobook really needed a male narrator as well.

Narrative horrible.. she kept licking her lips and needed water all through this. Very distracting
The narrator’s super-exaggerated Texas twang was terrible, and totally ruined the story for me. I think that some level of accent was probably necessary for the characters, but I found it obnoxious and distracting the way it was performed.
