My Rating:  4.5 stars

The One For You is the final story in The Ones Who Got Away series – and it was definitely the story I most wanted to read.  Kincaid has been vital to each book up to this point, her presence is felt, even needed throughout the series, yet this time we see what the mask hides, the still constant pain, the confusion and yes, the growing hope for the future – one with Ash.  On the surface, Kincaid has taken on life at a full charge.  She survived.  So now she’s going to live her life to the fullest without regret – still, there are memories, feelings that she’s buried deep, and perhaps some truths she wasn’t really ready to acknowledge.  Ashton’s return will bring all of this and more to the surface as two people who were childhood friends get a second chance to get it right this time, at this moment, if they are willing to take risks and the memories of the past can be put where they need to be… in the past.

Because this is the finale for this series I want to be even more careful than usual about what I say for you really should experience Ash and Kincaid’s story firsthand, especially if you’ve followed the series from the beginning.  The One For You brought closure for me, to not only the series but to each survivor’s story – I only needed Kincaid’s and Ash’s input to make it all fall together.  There will be tears, they are necessary for healing, there will be laughter, and there will be truths acknowledged, some that should have been seen for what they are long, long ago.  The journey for this couple to find their happy ever after has a few bumps in the road, but they work through, around what stands in the way to get what they both deserve in the end – happiness, a life together, a future.

I’ve been waiting for this story – and it delivered.  That’s perhaps the highest compliment I can give.  The One For You is an emotional story on many levels, it’s a friends to lovers romance, a second chance at love, and an overall really good story that should not be missed.
