The One That Got Away by A.J. Pine

How far will one man go for the woman he's loved since high school? Jamie Kingston has been Brynn Chandler's best friend since middle school. Only once was their friendship tested—when Brynn gave Jamie a single kiss. Since then, they've had an unspoken agreement never to cross that line again, and she’s ready to let go of the past and move on. But Jamie has loved Brynn for as long as he can remember, and now that he's ready to tell her, she has her sights set on someone else. Knowing this is his last chance, he asks Brynn to go on a two-week road trip. But their time alone brings old hurts to the surface, and Brynn has to decide if the one that got away lies at the end of the journey or if he's been by her side all along.

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 reunion, the two bffs find themselves in the same boat they were in that fateful night a decade ago. They still can't seem to get their timing right, though. Ergo an epic road trip that will either fail miserably or end in happily ever after. The road trip is nothing short of hilarious and dramatic. This is such a great story, the writing is easy to get into. I found myself really feeling for Jamie and Brynn, who royally suck at communicating their feelings in effort not to rock their bff boat, a lot during a trip that's supposed to help them figure shit out. There's no lacking in awww-inducing moments and times when you'll want to shake some sense into either Brynn or Jamie!
