Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Stella and George two ordinary people that had a past together but when the chance to get together again after so many years one jumps at it more than the other. Easy reading short chapters not quite the depth in it I thought it would have but still enjoyed reading it.
No spoilers, all I will say is that I thought the twist was a good one. Yes it can happen you see your old flame on social media or such and the flame that once burnt might still be burning but if that is wanted by the other or not is the big question. Might be a cautionary tale of leaving the past firmly where it was, in the past.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Another so called psychological thriller which does little to thrill and is very confused.

The novel is written from the perspectives of George and Stella and follows their love affair with so called twists and turns along the way having hooked up once more at a school reunion. To reveal much more gives away the so called twist in the tale. However, it's safe to say that overall, this is poorly written, the characters are unpleasant, it jumps between chick lit and a thriller. Okay for a holiday read but that's about it. I do sometimes wonder how some of these novels get published!

By Brida TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 14 May 2017
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
"The One That Got Away" is a quick, throw-away read in the style of "Gone Girl" and "Before I go to Sleep." The blurb on the back of the book suggests that this is a novel about two people, who reunite after they attend their 15 year school reunion. Whilst they were students, they were a couple, but their relationship ended badly. They feel a spark between them still, and so begin an affair. But one of them does not want to let go again. In some ways, this is a fair description of the synopsis, but I would argue that it's not exactly true either.

The two people in question are Stella and George. Both have done well for themselves since leaving school, especially George. But, when we learn about their childhood 'love' it doesn't exactly sound as though theirs was a love based on equal affections. In fact, it's even debatable whether they were in a proper relationship when they were younger, or whether George was just using her for sex. For me, this made the rest of the book bordering on the side of implausible; Stella is presented at the beginning as an intelligent, independent woman, so why she would hold a flame for someone who used her so badly just didn't make sense.
This brings me onto the main problem, for me, with this book. The characters were just not well drawn out at all. As in "Gone Girl", you may very well find yourself struggling to find anything redeeming about either Stella or George. I found myself skim reading through the short chapters, not because I cared about either of them, but just because I felt I had to read it all in order to review it. All of the characters, primary and secondary ones, are clichéd and two-dimensional.
