Book Review: The One That Got Away by Kelly Hunter

Title: The One That Got Away
Author: Kelly Hunter
Publisher: Harlequin Kiss
Year Published: 2013
Pages: 224
Price: $2,94
My Rating: ★★★

The man who's always left her wanting more! Good job? Tick. Newly purchased apartment? Tick. Evie's life is on a pretty even keel at the moment. The only thing missing? A man with an edge to keep things interesting. Enter Logan Black. Tortured, distant and sexy, Logan has edge written all over him. He's also the man who tipped Evie over the edge a few years back-she gave him everything, but he didn't know when to stop taking. Leaving Logan was the hardest thing Evie's ever done. Until now. Because Logan's back, the chemistry is as blistering as ever and this time he's not going anywhere....
Buy This Book from Book Depository, Free Delivery World Wide

This is one of my first English books which has been purchased on Book Depository. The price on the book is only $2,59 but I don't judge Book Depository takes too much profit because it has free shipping worldwide!! No need hesitation. The post man didn't ask me for any extra fee. I'm really happy for that :) I'm planning to buy books from Better World Books.

Harlequin Kiss serves you a lot of desires where fun-loving heroines and irresistible heroes just can't get enough of each others. The conflict on this book was so simple. Evie almost got a fake marriage with the brother of someone who she had fallen in love with long time ago, Logan Black. Logan is bossy kind of guy. He had something in the past that he's afraid it'll happen again to Evie. But Evin confinced him with so many ways. I'm glad I get a happy ending. I think Logan is almost like Edward Cullen when Edward met Bella at the first time. Edward wanted Bella so much like possessed. Same thing happened to Logan Black.

The setting is in Australia but there is no many explanations about it. The writer focus only on the way Evie and Logan express their love, in public even in bedroom. So I think this book is for adult, 23 or over. There are a lot of coupons on the last pages (only for US and Can).

About the author:
 Australian born Kelly Hunter writes short contemporary romance for Harlequin Mills & Boon and even shorter contemporary romance for herself. First published in 2007, Kelly's books have finalled once in the Romance Writers of Australia's RUBY award, six times in the Australian ROmance Readers Awards, twice in the Romantic Times Readers Choice Awards and have been nominated three times for a RITA. Thus inspired, Kelly keeps writing them.

Why short category romance and not a bigger wordcount? Aside from a deep and abiding admiration for the shorter form, Kelly has a three-month book-writing attention span. If she ever learns to write faster or pay attention longer she may write longer books. (Source: Kelly Hunter Website)
