Author Notes

Roni wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven't improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has. She holds a master's degree in social work and spent years as a mental health counselor, but now she writes full time from her cozy office in Dallas, Texas where she puts her characters on the therapy couch instead. She is a two-time RITA Award winner and a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Loren's gripping third look into the lives of survivors of a mass shooting (after The One You Can't Forget) will leave readers breathless. It's been 14 years since Taryn Landry, now a psychologist in Austin, Tex., survived a horrific incident at her high school prom that took the life of her sister. The night's events also scarred athlete Shaw Miller, who gave up his Olympic dreams and now owns a gym. But where Taryn receives outpourings of sympathy, Shaw, the brother of one of the shooters, gets scorn. He changes his name and resigns himself to a solitary life as Lucas Shaw-until he meets Taryn again. Their mutual attraction is instant and undeniable, but the prospect of any kind of lasting relationship looks bleak. Her parents and others feel she's betrayed them, and media types only see clickbait. All Taryn and Shaw know is they love each other, but they fear love may not be enough. This outstanding paean to seeing the humanity in others is a must-read for fans of contemporary romance. Agent: Sara Megibow, KT Literary. (Jan.) c Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.


Booklist Review

*Starred Review* Taryn Landry, a psychology professor, survived a high-school shooting, but her sister was a victim. Since that terrible night, Taryn has dedicated her life to the prevention of violent attacks. She definitely doesn't have time for fun or dating, despite her friends' prodding. Shaw Miller was once an Olympic hopeful, but since his brother became responsible for a mass school shooting, Shaw has tried to hide from society and the press. When his friend asks Shaw to partner with him in opening up Gym Xtreme, Shaw can't pass up the opportunity. When he meets Taryn, neither knows who the other is. Despite their intentions not to date anyone as they focus on their careers, they fall hard and fast for each other. But as the truth about their pasts comes to light, will love be enough? Loren (The One You Can't Forget, 2018) delivers another stunning and moving addition to her series about survivors of a school shooting. She realistically and vividly depicts guilt and loneliness while also showcasing the power and importance of love and friendship. Moments of heartfelt humor and face-flushing love scenes counter the sadness. Truly exceptional.--Jenna Friebel Copyright 2018 Booklist
