Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you suddenly looked into the eyes of your handsome ex-boyfriend at a romantic wedding in Rome...far away from your husband?

Helen is almost 40, and her boobs are starting to go south. She's also happily married to Mark. But why, then, can't she stop staring at ex-fiancee Rob's big blue eyes from the minute she finds him on Facebook? And why does she agree to go to a mutual friend's wedding in Rome - accompanied by her very loud and touristy mom and even louder gin-and-tonic drinking friend, Lori - when she knows he will be there?

It can only mean one thing: trouble. Things don't get less complicated when Helen finds out that Mark is going on a business trip with his perfect ex-girlfriend (with perfect perky boobs) at the same time somewhere in Germany. Or when he suddenly shows up in Rome unannounced.

A fun, warmhearted, and compelling story, The One That Got Away is a novel about a lot of what if's, how we often take love for granted, and how life doesn't always have to be picture perfect. If you love a fast-paced story with snappy dialogue and lots of humor and heart, this is the book for you.

Unique Contemporary Romance

This book was very well written and grabbed my attention from beginning to conclusion. I was not sure how things were going to turn out and I was pleasantly surprised with a very sweet conclusion.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

Helen is almost 40 and she started wondering what would have happened if she had married her high school sweetheart. Some jealousy gets the best of her when she sees who her husband has been working with! His beautiful and stylish ex-girlfriend seems to have it all! She has a successful job and has an ex-husband. She starts wondering if she is after her husband!

After much indecisiveness, Helen decides to go to Rome with her mom and best friend to attend a friend’s wedding. Rome is a romantic setting and she sees her ex-boyfriend and starts wondering wether she still has feelings for him. After seeing a picture of his wife, Helen’s husband shows up at the worse possible time. Things are not what they seem and everything seems to go downhill fast!

If you want to know more, you will just have to grab this great Contemporary romance and find out for yourself how everything turns out! You will not be disappointed!

What will she do?

This is an easy romance listen that was a nice change of pace for me. Helen a middle-aged woman is faced with the opportunity to go to Rome and see her ex-boyfriend "the one that got away". When she chooses to go to Rome and face her long set aside feelings what will happen? Will she choose her long-lost love or return to her husband of 20 years?

This book is very well written and grabs at your emotions. You can feel Helen's torn feelings for both her husband and her ex. You can imagine being in the place of choosing between both men. Brenda Wlazlo does a great job narrating the book and portraying Charlotte Roth's writings.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
