The One That Got Away (AJ Pine)


How far will one man go for the woman he’s loved since high school? 

Jamie Kingston has been Brynn Chandler’s best friend since middle school. Only once was their friendship tested—when Brynn gave Jamie a single kiss. Since then, they’ve had an unspoken agreement never to cross that line again, and she’s ready to let go of the past and move on.

But Jamie has loved Brynn for as long as he can remember, and now that he’s ready to tell her, she has her sights set on someone else. Knowing this is his last chance, he asks Brynn to go on a two-week road trip. But their time alone brings old hurts to the surface, and Brynn has to decide if the one that got away lies at the end of the journey or if he’s been by her side all along.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to you all now, but I read this book as a buddy read with Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much, so go to her blog in the next few days to read her take on this book.

I’m a huge sucker for best friends turn to lovers romances, and this one didn’t disappoint on that account. I really enjoyed the way the double POV was written, with just enough look into the past for us to understand the whole scope of Jamie and Brynn’s friendship.

I really liked both characters, they were both unique and they fitted together perfectly. Their friendship was seriously goals, and I adored the way they knew each other so well and almost had their own language.

I had a few problems with the development of the plot because I got frustrated with both of them… these 2 needed to just talk, and they were great at talking… about anything but the 2 of them together. I just wished they had been a bit more honest with each other, though I did understand both of their positions.

Overall, it was a super cute friends to lovers romance and I would recommend it if you’re into these kind of stories 😉 .
