I enjoy Karina’s stories that are set in different countries. I feel like I’m traveling without leaving my house. This story is set in Europe with a football storyline. It’s spaced out on a span of many years.
This is purely from a subjective POV. What didn’t work for me will most likely work for others. In order to fully commit and be addicted to a story I need to feel something positive for the characters. Ruby is not one I connected with. I felt annoyed by her her personality and behaviour. I rolled my eyes a few times.
It was very angsty and there were too many players in the relationship which is not a storyline I go for. Although it didn’t work out for me it could for you. Told in a dual POV with a HEA.
The One That Got Away by The New York Times, Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling author Karina Halle is now live!
*A standalone second-chance romance*
Ruby Turner was never meant to be mine.
When I first met her, she was a fresh, young, American sports journalist trying to find her footing in a new life abroad. She was the one interviewing me for an article, yet I wanted to know more about her. She captivated me.
But she went home with Marco that night.
And I did what I could to pretend I was fine with it.
After all, I’m Luciano Ribeiro. As the captain of Real Madrid, and Portugal’s National Team, it’s my job to be cool, calm, and collected, not easily rattled.
Only what I felt for Ruby over time, shook me to my very core.
It made me do things I never imagined I would do.
It started with a stolen kiss in the middle of the night.
It led to a passionate tryst.
It created a burden of guilt that I had to carry, as Ruby came in and out of my life until she left for good, leaving her mark on me.
Now, seven years later, she’s back.
She was the one that got away.
I don’t think I’ll let her go this time.
But I might not have a choice.
Because my heart still belongs to her.
And her heart might belong to my brother.
