Relationships never work out. At least, that's what I've always thought.
Hungover at an Estate sale after drinking my latest break-up away, the last thing I expected to find in someone's dusty old attic was my high school boyfriend.
He's only back in Friendship, Texas for the summer but he wants to re-connect.
He'll leave for New York again soon and there's no way I'm getting attached.
But there's this part of me that hates the idea of him being the one that got away…again…
Each book in the Friendship, Texas series is a STANDALONE
*Edge of Glory
*Rumor Has It
*Part of Me

Abbey and Jordan were high school sweethearts. Jordan leaves Abby behind when he moves to New York. Jordan is now back in town helping his family get his Grandma's house to be sold. He would like nothing better to reconnect with the girl his left behind. Abbey is super cautious to open herself back up as she was devastated when he left without her and she knows his time in town is limited. I felt so upset for Abbey with her so-called friends. I'm sure the reality of her friendships and the advise from her dad made her decisions for her future much clearer and easier. I was really rooting for Jordan and Abbey. I think maybe they had to go their separate ways to grow into the people they are now so they can appreciate who they can become in the future together. Made their feelings much deeper and more real. This is book 4 in the Friendship Texas Series but I feel it can be a stand alone. This is the first book I have read in this series and had no problem following along and enjoying the book. ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
The One That Got Away is a sweet and steamy second chance romance. Four years ago, Abbey and Jordan were high school sweethearts. Till Jordan left Abbey behind for New York City. Abbey has really only, loved Jordan. No one could compare to him and no one ever would. But sometimes second chances happen. I loved both characters and I understood Abbey’s reluctance to follow Jordan. Because who really knows what’s going to happen. But it’s the fear that has kept here there. There’s one thing I can always count on with Magan’s stories. It doesn’t take me long to finish, that’s how much I enjoy her writing. For me, I can tell within the first page if I’m going to love it. I’ve highly enjoyed this series, since the beginning and I can’t wait for more. Overall, I give this Four Boundless Stars
