This is my review and how I see it. In The One That Slipped Away, author LaShawn Vasser, tells the story of Harrison Haughton and Mia Jamison and thier love gone wrong. Mia and Harrison met at a HBCU, the twist is Harrison is a white male), where Mia became his friend and tutor. They built a friendship of trust and eventually fell in love, but thier problem start once Harrison introduces Mia to his parents and the mother takes issue with Mia, because she isn’t like them.
Harrison’s father dies and the problems for this couple only pile-up from there as Harrison’s friends and mother consistently undermine thier relationship. Harrison is too wrapped up in other things to see what is happening then he makes a choice which cost him his relationship with Mia.
Six years later they come face to face, it is a reunion, nobody saw coming. Mia’s life begins to implode, in ways she could not imagine. Mia has been keeping a secret from Harrison.
The character’s in this book I could have done without and wanted to throat punch where Harrison’s’ mother, his ex-girlfriend, his friends, Mia’s parents and her fake fiancé.
I can understand why Mia kept her secret from Harrison. I am glad she finally put her parents in their place. This story had real-life situations and it allow me to related to the hurts and pains of Harrison and Mia. There was enough blame to go around and too many mistakes were made by both parties and the new that and were able to work through it.
My favorite part of this book was when Harrison jack-up Michael, Mia’s fake fiancé.
I really enjoyed this story even thought some parts were a little touchy for me.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read interracial romance.
