The One That Got Away – Melissa Pimentel


Travelling to England for her sister’s wedding, Ruby is about to see her ex, Ethan, for the first time in ten years. Seeing him again stirs up unresolved feelings and Ruby begins to question whether she made the right decision a decade ago, though she’s certain that Ethan doesn’t feel the same way.

Although this is 100% a romance novel, the love story is not always the top focus, which gives the story more body. We follow Ruby’s family through preparations for the wedding, internal family struggles, and Ruby and Ethan’s past in a very smooth and realistic way. The characters and their stories are completely believable, you could be reading about real people.

Melissa Pimentel’s writing style is very good and easy to follow. I loved the English countryside setting vs the madness of New York (I’ve experienced both so can attest to the accuracy). To be honest, not that much actually happens in the book but I still found myself staying up until 3am reading it. It’s just a really nice love story.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
