THIS BOOK STARTED OFF A LITTLE SLOW FOR MY LIKING. BUT IT DID END WITH A BANG. TONY COMTINUES TO CHASE AFTER SERENA EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS MARRIED WITH CHILDREN. TONY WAS HOPING FOR A SECOND CHANCE, BUT SERENA HAD TO MUCH BAGGAGE THAT NEEDED TO BY DEALT WITH FIRST. WHEN SOMETHING DOESN'T WORK OUT THE FIRST TIME, THERE'S USUALLY A REASON WHY, AND YOU SHOULD JUST LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE. THERE'S ALWAYS A GOOD REASON WHY SOME PEOPLE ARE ONLY MEANT TO BE IN OUR LIVES FOR A SHORT PERIOD.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Executive Tony Gooden has two goals in life. He plans to make a lot of money and to use his wealth to fully enjoy the life of a single. He is succeeding at both as he is rising fast up the corporate ladder and has no problem scoring with the women. Life is perfect until he sees his college sweetheart Serena Kincaid at the wedding of his college roommate in Chicago................. Years ago Tony let Serena marry someone else though he foolishly crashed the wedding in an almost Mrs. Robinson scenario, but finally moved on with a string of models. Now seeing her, he wants her more than life itself. Serena has her own troubles with her marriage to Jamie collapsing. She wants Tony, but figures on a one night stand to forget her troubles at least for an evening. Both have the best night of their lives, but he needs more while she has doubts after one failed marital relationship and their previous history. Still he heads to Cincinnati to make his case.................... THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY is a fabulous contemporary romance starring two likable protagonists who belong together yet somehow never took the next step. Instead they went their separate ways, but have a second chance at love if both take the risk to their respective hearts. The story line focuses on the changing triangular relationship between Tony, Serena and Jamie who still wants his wife at his side (among other women) and uses their daughter to achieve his objective. Fans will welcome this fine Midwest tale due to the fully developed cast who because they seem real make choosing so difficult to decide.............. Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
