I really enjoyed everything about The One Who Got Away by Tara Ericson. I loved the town of Minden and I’m looking forward to reading more stories set in this quaint place. This story was the perfect sweet romance with great banter, wonderful characters, nicely placed humor, and a natural faith thread.
The One That Got Away is a friends to more and fake relationship story- two of my favorites! I also really liked getting both Bryce and Kristal’s perspectives. I felt that I really knew each character by the end of the story. I’m also really intrigued by the teasers for the next story. I’m already feeling sorry for Jake!
I highly recommend this story if you’re looking for a fun, light, sweet Christian romance! 5 stars!
*I received a complimentary copy of this story. All opinions are my own. The faith thread is light.
The relationship is fake. But the sparks are real.
Can these best friends rekindle a second chance at first love? Or will they both end up burned?
Right here at the Minden Fire Department is exactly where I belong. But when I became Captain Storm, apparently it meant I needed a wife. Or at least, that’s what my mom’s friends think.
When Krystal comes back to town, I don’t know what to think. She was my best friend in high school. The truth is I loved her–as much as any eighteen-year-old kid could have. I think she loved me, too.
But she left, anyway.
I really do understand why. She had dreams to chase in Hollywood. How could I deny her that?
She’s here now, though. For eight weeks. And she’s taking over the fire department charity auction while her mom recovers from her fall, which means working with me.
I know we’re just friends. She’s going back to LA after the auction, but maybe her presence could get my mom’s friends off my back for a minute. We’ll just let people assume there is more to our friendship… No harm, no foul. I really could use the break from my personal matchmakers’ attention.
And I won’t say no to a little extra time with Krystal. I’m probably torturing myself. Friends is all we’ll ever be. Even a fake relationship can’t change the fact that she was The One Who Got Away.
