    1 thought on “The One That Got Away”

    1. My journey through this book can basically be summed up into one gif:For most of this book (which rates more like a two and a half, but GR's rating system doesn't make that possible), I was on the fence. I wanted to like it, and sometimes I did, but then the characters would do something that would annoy me. To add to that, when they said or did certain things, I could kinda sorta maybe understand where they were coming from, but it still left me very annoyed. And by the end, I was pretty much o [...]

    2. No full review for this is to come because I can never exactly put contemporaries into words. The One That Got Away was a super cute novel, but didn't have anything else for it but that. The story line was similar to most contemporaries, and in some parts I found myself confused by the writing. I'm unsure if it was just me and my tiredness or if the circumstances kept changing mid page? However, Jamie and Brynn were a couple I almost instantly shipped so I needed them together and that is why I [...]

    3. Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsFriends to loversI'm a big believer in couples having a solid friendship before it turns into more and in The One That Got Away this couple has had 10 years of friendship and a few blips to finally begin to figure out that what they feel is more than friendship. I enjoyed this crazy, funny, and sexy story even when there were times I wanted to shake some sense into one or both of the main characters.Best friends since junior high Jamie Kingst [...]

    4. Guysis book! I can't even tell you how much fun I had writing it. I hope you have as much fun (if not more) joining Jamie and Brynn on their cross-country road trip while they try to navigate not only Route 66d ten years of buried heartache. Eeep! Galleys go out ANY DAY NOW. P.S. This is book 1 of 4. To keep up with all things Kingston Ale House, like sneak peeks at covers and blurbs, come join my series group HERE.

    5. Genre: CRDNF @ 23%I love the Friends to Lovers trope but this was dull. The MCs were unengaging and there was too much Paralysis by Analysis for me.Tags: Road trip, Best friends since junior high, Chicago

    6. 4.5, You hung the moon, Stars!!“I wasn’t in love with her. It took being with her to realize that I was already with the person I loved most. She just didn’t know it yet.”“I lied to myself–and to you–for a long time. But every day for eleven years, even when I wouldn’t admit it, I’ve loved you. It never lasted with anyone else because you’ve always had my heart.”I just loved this book to pieces!! This is the perfect spring/summer friends to lovers romance. One of the first [...]

    7. DNF at 21%This one was all over the place for me -- the writing was constantly drifting between POV and past and present enough to give me whiplash. I also couldn't even figure out the actual action happening in the story because of poor writing and editing. I thought this would be a second chance romance but it was really a friends to lovers, neither of whom was particularly likeable.Skip this and read Honey Red by Liz Crowe or When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill instead.

    8. A bit repetitive at times and Jamie being so stubborn got annoying sometimes but the rest of the book was total catnip for me lol

    10. One of my absolute favorite friends-to-lovers romance, with AJ's trademark smooth and witty writing. I adore everything she writes, and she gets better with every book. Brynn and Jamie's story will have you swooning!

    11. 4.5 stars! This. This right here is how you write a Friends to Lovers romance! Thank Heavens! I’ve been having such a hard time with this trope lately, and by lately I honestly mean all year. I may have groaned a little when I saw this come up on my list as next to read, but then I thought, “Cool your jets Shannon and have a little hope. You were intrigued enough by the synopsis to read it, so here you are, put on some big girl panties and get to it.” And so I did. There’s only been two [...]

    12. I got to sneak peek this book-so stinking fun and cute. Perfect for Friends fans. Kingston Brewery is like Central Perkexcept there's beer. Bonus!Review to come.

    13. I've read and enjoyed previous stories by A.J. Pine and I was excited to read this first in the Kingston Ale House series. Craft breweries are becoming more popular as social venues, so it stands to reason that they would start to show up as subject matter in popular fiction. It’s a setting that lends itself well to romance subplots with its more intimate settings and the inclusion of the sensuality to be found in food and drink. This particular story features a friends-to-lovers romance with [...]

    14. Я, конечно, предполагаю, что у меня просто не было настроения для этой книги, но более занудной истории я не читала. Я читала эту книгу почти 2 недели, наверное, рекорд для меня, обычно максимум дня 2-3. Герои мне совсем не понравились, мне постоянно хотелось их встряхнуть и поби [...]

    15. ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review“The past ten years will always be between us if we don’t see this through. I don’t want to be the guy who stood in the way if there is someone who could make you happier than I could.That was the truth. She meant enough to him that her happiness came first.”A.J. Pine delivers a smart, witty, and charming read that is wildly entertaining!!!! For all you friends to lover romance trope fanatics, this is one book that you wouldn’t [...]

    16. 2.5 “Road Trip & Best Friends” StarsARC via NetGalleyThank you, Entangled!First things first, BEAUTIFUL COVER!!! *swoons*Okay. Now that that is overTake a look at my recent reviews and you’ll know how big of a fan of the “BFF to lovers” trope I am. That was reason #1 I requested “The One that Got Away” when I saw it on NetGalley. I’m sorry to say not even one my favorite book tropes was enough to make me fall for this book.Jamie and Brynn have been best friends for a really l [...]

    17. I recieved a digital copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. When I stumbled upon this book on NetGalley I knew it would be a sweet story and I had to read it. Needless to say I requested it. And got approved short after. After being on a Fantasy/Sci-Fi reading binge for months I needed something to switch things up, so I picked The One That Got Away up and it was the perfect decicion! When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the [...]

    18. The One That Got Away is the first book in The Kingston Ale House series. The One That Got Away mainly revolves around Jamie Kingston and Brynn Chandler's relationship. They have been best friends since middle school. When Brynn gives Jamie a kiss, there friendship was tested. Planning to never cross the line again, they continue on with their friendship. Jamie has loved Brynn for as long as he can remember and now he is ready to tell her. However, she now has her sights on someone else. Knowing [...]

    19. I had sort of a love / hate relationship with this book.That sounds worse than it probably is. It's just—Jamie and Brynn infuriated me. I wanted to shake them and knock some sense into them because they kept making these terrible decisions and getting in their own way. It was frustrating and sometimes—at different points throughout the book—I didn't like either one of them very much. And then, just like that, they'd turn around and be sweet and funny and a little bit silly. They'd have a r [...]

    20. I wish I could have liked the story as much as I liked the blurb, but it all went sideways once the male protagonist (not hero, in my opinion) started finding more and more insipid excuses for his cowardice and insecurity about getting the girl he's always wanted. It only took ten yearsd even then, it wasn't without a circus-ring of stupid behaviour that somehow came to pushing his forever-girl to meet *another* man so she could decide whether her own feelings for the 'hero' were real or fabrica [...]

    21. Feelings that have been brewing between best friends for a decade is definitely the recipe for off the charts chemistry. Jamie and Brynn can attest to that. Does anyone else feel like timing is everything and also the one thing that is the hardest to get right? Jamie and Brynn have the worst timing, ever. After a failed high school hook-up, the two best friends swept everything under the rug and moved on with their lives. Or so they each thought. Fast forward ten years later, upon a high school [...]

    22. Love, love, love this book! You get not one, but two of the sweetest grand gestures in the end. Beers, baseball, and a deeply satisfying friends-to-lovers romance make this is top read for me in 2016.

    23. It took a while for me to warm up to this book for some reason, but I was grinning by the time I hit the end. Even though I wanted to knock these two idiots together a time or two (or three or more), I thought it was cute.

    24. Some of my favorite things: beer, travel, and love. How could I not love this book?!?! I loved this story and I thought the beer tasting scenes were so, so perfect. I'm excited to read the rest of this series! <3

    25. Such a fun couple! Loved them both - especially going on the road trip with them. Such a great journey, emotionally and literally. Will definitely read the others in this series!

    26. The story warmed my heart. Brynn and Jamie are lovable characters. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series.

    27. Los protagonista lograron enojarme varias veces por su falta de comunicación pero fue lindo que por fin superaran esos diez años de distancia
