Being dumped by the man he thought was the one left Michael feeling very depressed and dejected. It wasnít just the fact that his boyfriend dumped him, but he was dumped on the night when Michael was ready to make a big commitment to him. Michael had to appreciate Jimís - his best friend and roommate - attempts to pull him out of the six-month slump. Their close relationship took an unexpected physical turn and their platonic friendship became a friends-with-benefits relationship.

Jim just wanted to help his friend feel better. He hated seeing Michael so down even though he was glad his ex was out of the picture.  What started out as comforting a friend quickly had Jim falling in love and losing his heart to Michael. 

The One That Got Away was a good story. It was about finding what you thought you lost to be right in front of you all along, but you had to be brave enough to face up to it.  Michael and Jim had no problem in facing the physical attraction for each other, but when their emotions became involved neither one knew how to handle it. There was a lot of assuming and jumping to conclusions in this story, and I wasnít happy with how both Jim and Michael handled their situation.  I especially was not thrilled with Michaelís choices and decisions, but if he made the choices I would have liked him to make, then we would not have this angst-ridden story to enjoy. The One That Got Away is a great read for those who enjoy friends to lovers romance stories.
