Book Review: The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel (Another Reviewer)
Title: The One That Got Away
Author: Melissa Pimentel
Stars: 4 stars
The One That Got Away was a cute fun romance that will take no time to read. Love IT!!!!! I would read it again that is how fun this book was even with the not so fun parts. A wonderful for the beach book that will keep you turning the pages to the very end. The story is fast-paced as it switches between now and then. The characters are charming and you are rooting for your favorites at the end. I like this author's writing style and will be reading more books by her. A fun way to spend a few hours. It is a romance with little sex and a bit of language. The sex is more afterward than any descriptions of sex during the process. The families in the story are fun and full of quirky characters you will want to hear more about in the future. The author could write more about these fun family members and maybe even back to how the characters getting married in this story decided they were the ones for each other. I would love to hear what happens to a few other characters along the lines that play a small part in this book. I give this book 4 stars out of 5 for fun quirky romance that leaves you smiling and satisfied at the end.
This is the book you sent me it was super fun to read...thanks
Ruby and Ethan were perfect for each other. Until the day they suddenly weren't.
Now, ten years later, Ruby is single, having spent the last decade focusing on her demanding career and hectic life in Manhattan. There's barely time for a trip to England for her little sister's wedding. And there's certainly not time to think about what it will be like to see Ethan again, who just so happens to be the best man.
But as the family frantically prepare for the big day, Ruby can't help but wonder if she made the right choice all those years ago. Because there is nothing like a wedding for stirring up the past .
About The Author:
Melissa Pimentel grew up in a small town in Massachusetts in a house without cable and therefore much of her childhood was spent watching 1970s British comedy on PBS.
At twenty-two, she made the move to London to do an MA in Modern Literature at University College London. She has lived there happily for ten years, though she still adamantly refuses to eat a scotch egg. Before meeting her fiancé, she spent much of her time trawling the London dating scene for clean, non-sociopathic sexual partners and blogging about it, which became the inspiration for her first novel.
These days, she spends much of her time reading in the various pubs of Stoke Newington and engaging in a long-standing emotional feud with their disgruntled cat, Welles. She works in publishing.
Love by the Book is her debut novel.
