    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.

    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.

    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.

    A really compelling series

    This is such a compelling series, I love the bond between Liv, Rebecca, Taryn & Kincaid, survivors of the Long Acre School tragedy, who are like sisters since they reconnected while filming for the documentary about the shooting. Taryn's sister, Nia, was killed in the shooting and ever since she has dedicated her life to getting a program into schools to prevent this happening again, whilst trying to keep her parents happy too. Her Mother especially has been completely paranoid about something happening to Taryn since her sister's death, wanting to know where she is all the time and make sure she is 'safe'. Both Taryn and her Father are always trying to keep her calm, but it was very, very smothering for poor Taryn, I really felt for her, her whole life revolved around this program and she had hardly any social life with all the pressure put on her. Then with a couple of chance meetings Taryn met Lucas/Shaw, who turned out to be opening an extreme gym nearby with his best friend River. Sparks flew between them and they started to get closer. But then Lucas/Shaw suddenly realised who Taryn was and their relationship changed again after he admitted who he actually was to her. This was a big deal to him as he had kept his true identify a secret for a long time. They knew their relationship had no chance... didn't it? But decided to enjoy it while they could, until Lucas/Shaw was outed by the press and decisions had to be made. Although this book is about a school shooting the story doesn't dwell on the details, so it's not as harrowing as it may have been. It's more about the lives that are affected by the original act, not just the victims families, but also the shooters families who had no idea what their sons were capable of, yet blamed themselves for their acts their whole life, as Lucas/Shaw had done. I'm really enjoying this series and can't wait to read Kincaid's story in the next book. Highly recommended.
