    The One You Fight For

    The One You Fight For is great. I love the way the author infuses lightness into heavy themes. She also has a knack for creating chemistry between the main characters that leaps off the page becoming a living, breathing entity. I love the way she does banter it seems so effortless. I thoroughly enjoyed this book Thorpe that Kincaid is getting a story because in really looking forward to reading it. I love this series and highly recommend it to contemporary romance that doesn't shy away from difficult themes.

    5 Stars and 5 Hankies.

    What if the sister of a school shooting victim falls in love with the brother of the shooter? This book rips your heart out. You should read it. The heat level is also 5 stars.

    Very enjoyable

    I really enjoyed this one! This is the third book in the series that focuses on the lives of a group of individuals that survived a school shooting. This one also brings in family members of the shooter and demonstrates the impact the shooting had on them. It's incredible food for thought and I think the author handles the very difficult topic with great care. In this book we get to know Taryn. She may have survived the shooting but her sister was not as fortunate. She's devoted to whole life to understanding the underlying reasons that caused the shooting to happen and develop a program that will hopefully help prevent another occurrence in the future. When she starts to fall for the brother of the shooter (before she knew who he really was) Taryn finds she has some hard decisions to make. This is a great story of forgiveness, hope and perseverance and definitely a book I recommend.

    Another very emotional story.

    I could just about copy and paste my review for book 2, The One You Can't Forget, and it would be accurate, but I'll try not to do that. The One You Fight For is book three in The Ones Who Got Away series but it can be read as a standalone. I highly recommend reading at least book one though, just so you have all of the back ground on the four women who became friends due to a horrible tragedy at their high school prom. Each of them will get their own story. I can't say enough good things about this series and this book. It's not an erotic romance like Roni Loren's Loving on the Edge series but it has plenty of heat. It also has characters that seem very real to me. All of the four women who because friends as a result of the tragic school shooting lost something that day but Taryn also lost her sister. That loss compelled her to choose a different path than the one she thought she would follow before the shootings. She has dedicated her adult life to researching the reason these horrible acts get committed and to developing a program for schools that can help identify children with problems so they can get help before they do something awful. We already know from the book's blurb that Taryn's love interest will be Shaw, the brother of the shooter, but getting to know the man behind the infamous name puts a new spin on things and helps us to realize that the survivors and people who died on that horrible day weren't the only victims. This story seemed so authentic and real to me. Ms. Loren must have done a boat load of research for this story for it to come out and feel this way to this reader. Taryn is such a strong character that she seems able to cope with almost anything but when she has to make a very painful choice her strength may not be enough to help her hold everything together. Like the other books, this story ripped me up and then put me back together again. Roni Loren is a master story teller who knows how to write moving stories that engage all of your emotions. I was totally invested in the outcome for these characters and I desperately needed them to find peace (especially Shaw) and their HEA. There is simply no way for me to do justice to this book with anything that I'd write. I can't wait for the next book to come out but I will also be sad because it will be the last one for this series. A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book.

    AMAZING!!

    I've been loving this series but The One You Fight For was just amazing and hands down my favorite of the series so far. Roni Loren is a master writer and the way she handles such difficult topics just blows me away. It could be so easy to trivialize Taryn and Shaw's problems or to ignore them completely but Loren just dives right in and forces the characters, and us as the reader, to experience the good, the bad, and the ugly. And every second of it is just beautiful! There was so much emotion in The One You Fight For and it really allows the book to just grab your heart and hold on for the ride. I've been interested in Taryn from the very first book in the series because she reminded me a lot of myself in high school. Studious, nerdy, and very focused so I was really happy to have her story. Taryn has maintained that focus to the point of almost burning herself out but she's determined to get her program into schools where it can help others. Taryn doesn't believe that killers are born that way but instead are shaped by their environment. There are key moments where someone can step in and begin to help a child who is lonely, depressed, or angry. I really admired Taryn for always keeping an open mind and embracing that there are many victims in a shooting, not just those who are killed or injured. As an Olympic hopeful, everything was ruined for Shaw the day his younger brother shot up his prom with another student. Shaw became a target for paparazzi and a bit of a temper made it hard for him to keep his cool. He's made some mistakes and now many people, thanks to the media, believe he's just like his brother. Shaw absolutely broke my heart because his story is so poignant and sad. All he wants is to be forgotten and left alone but that also means that Shaw is very lonely; he only has one friend who actually knows who he really is. I loved that Shaw was kind of this gentle giant but because of a few mistakes after the shooting he doesn't think the best of himself. Taryn and Shaw have no idea who the other is when they meet so their attraction is natural and unexpected for both of them. Of course, once things are revealed it creates a whole mess they never saw coming. I really enjoyed the way Loren handled their relationship so that they both went into things with their eyes wide open and no secrets between them. The chemistry is amazing and these two are incredibly hot together! But as you can imagine, how could Taryn explain to her friends and her family who Shaw really is and this creates the majority of the tension in their relationship. As a final note, I really love the way Loren writes about female friendship. She has built a really amazing bond for Liv, Becca, Taryn, and Kincaid and it's awesome to see women supporting each other and leaning on each other. I'm so looking forward to the next in this series!
