Product Description

**Mature Content Warning** Recommended for ages 17+ due to language and sexual content.

Kori suffered a great loss, one that left her feeling so desolate and alone, that she believed nothing would ever fill the void…

The only thing that kept her going was the one little piece of joy she still had in her life, her baby boy, Rhett.

She had no choice but to move forward and give her son the best life she could. Which meant moving back home.

Except there was one problem.

Home was where Reed would be…

The man who once held her heart, then shattered it into a million pieces.

Grieving the loss of Rhetts dad, and learning to forgive those who have betrayed her, Kori was battling it all.

But will she ever have the strength to forgive Reed?

Ok I wasn't going to leave a review because I wasn't sure if I could say anything nice. Which totally contradicts the 4 star rating I gave it.

Don't get me wrong I felt so much for Kori and all her struggles and yes she totally deserved her HEA. But god she cried so much... I mean every freaking time you turned around she is happy then poof tears pouring down her eyes. And not only hers Reeds too... I am so not one of those girls that think guys can't cry they totally can and should, but it was almost like he cried as much a she did...

But upon reading Finding Gavin I totally understand Kori/Reed more and that's weird right, I mean they were in the story but not the main characters. But I just totally got why she cried as much as she did. AND why Reed was as emotional as he was. So yeah I am making my 4 star review a 5 star.

So I learned a lesson today and that's maybe, just maybe, look a little deeper.

HASH(0x9dc2afcc) out of 5 stars A Second-Chance, Cowboy, New Adult Romance. Nov. 3 2014
By BJ's Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Have you ever wished you could get a do over? Young love sometimes can end prematurely due to adolescent hormones. Forgiving Reed is a second chance, new adult romance that explores this topic with an additional twist of first having to learn how to grieve and accept the loss of a prior love. If you're looking for a sweet, country romance with a good old-fashioned cowboy, then Forgiving Reed may just be the book you were looking for.

Having left her best friend and first love, Reed, when she found him fooling around with another girl, Kori moved on to a big city, went to college and found the man she thought would be the one she would spend the rest of her life with. Fate, however, dealt her cruel hand, when just as their son was to be born, Blake died in a car accident. Her life both began and ended that day, as the accident also caused the premature birth of her son, Rhett.

Left alone as a single mother with a newborn to raise, Kori does the only thing she can imagine to survive: she moves back home to her small town of Brooklet, Georgia to be near her parents. Devastated she spends the first few months grieving. Then at the behest of one of her childhood girlfriends, she does the unthinkable and tries to start living again. While out one night she runs into Reed. Although she tries her best to avoid him, and the hurtful thoughts of betrayal that she associates with him, it doesn't take long before their paths keep crossing.

Reed wishes he could take back that one night when he let his teenage shortsightedness cost him the love of his life. He is determined to prove just that to Kori if she would just give him a chance. When it becomes clear that Kori is intent on avoiding him, however, he tries for the next best thing, and does what he can to prove his friendship. In that regard, he wants to help Kori's life easier and starts doing what he can to help her with her son. Soon he is falling for not just Kori all over again, but also Rhett. Will Kori be able to find the courage to forgive Reed and move on with the direction that both their hearts are intent on following?

I love stories with strong alpha males, who will do anything to protect the woman they love. Add in that same protective streak and fierce love and dedication towards a child, particularly one who is missing a parent figure, and you have a definite recipe for success in my book. While cheating is a difficult subject area, I think this is one story that quite possibly might be the exception to my general rule that it is completely unforgivable. All in all, I enjoyed Forgiving Reed and particularly loved how far Reed was willing to go to win back over the love of his life.

I can't wait to see how Gavin's and Maria's romance evolves in book 2 of the Southern Boys series, Finding Gavin, due out in 2015! The teaser of their story in this book was quite interesting and I imagine Gavin will be another cowboy who will have to put on his gentlemanly charm to show just far he is willing to go to prove that he too has changed, and is worthy of Maria's love and trust.

HASH(0x9dc2e03c) out of 5 stars Spoilers... Oct. 19 2014
By SD_ reader - Published on

I typically don't read books in which the cheater gets a second chance with same girl he cheated on. But I gave this one a chance. Wished I hadn't. It was sweet, but I don't think Reed deserved a second chance with Kori. I felt like Kori was taking a giant step down from her love with Blake by getting back together with Reed. Kori should have kept Reed at the curb she kicked him to when she caught him cheating and moved on to someone else.

HASH(0x9dc2e318) out of 5 stars LOVED this book!! Oct. 13 2014
By Lisa Kane - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 Fantastic Stars!

This is the first book I've read from CA Harms and believe me when I say it won't be the last!

I LOVED this book!

Kori grew up in Georgia. Her high school sweetheart was Reed, but in their senior year she felt him pulling away a bit and spending way too much time with his friends and less with her. Of course, when she walked in on him in a compromising position, that sealed the deal and they were no longer a couple.

After I left home and walked away from Reed, I never thought I would feel the same about another man. Reed was my first love...well, my first everything, and he broke my heart. He was older by a year. When he decided spending time out with the guys was more important than me, it helped sway my decision to leave for college. The night I walked into his house and found Kimberly Tucker kneeling down before him with her head bobbin in his crotch, it just sealed the deal.

It took a year and a half of nursing her broken heart, but when she met Blake she was ready to love again. Blake came from money and his parents felt his relationship with Kori was beneath his social status. When she became pregnant, they wanted her to get an abortion. After that, Blake kept any contact with them to a minimum. Kori and Blake are thrilled with the coming baby and decide to take a mini vacation before the baby arrives. Tragedy strikes when the car they are in skids toward an oncoming truck. Blake is killed and on the same day, their son Rhett is born.

She had one encounter with Blake parents when they offered her money to get rid of her and to stay far away. She refused it and could not believe the depth of their cruelty towards their only son's child.Kori is devastated and moves home to be with her parents and best friend Maria. She focuses on her baby and finishes her course work to get her teaching certification. She dreads the day she will run into Reed again, she knows he still lives in the town.

Her first run in with Reed is by accident, and she finds out he is the owner of the town's local watering hole. Not only that, but he seems to be the town's handyman, in demand for jobs and something of the town's golden boy. His mom died tragically in a house fire, his dad is still in the same house and Reed built himself a beautiful home on the same land.

Kori can't let her defenses down, years ago, he hurt her with his betrayal. She won't let herself be hurt again. Reed looks for opportunities to see her, and he has a natural connection with her son. His face lights up when he sees him and that touches Kori more than she wants to admit.

Reed has matured since they were together. He owns up to his mistakes and make no bones about wanting Kori back. He may have had his share of women in the years they were apart, but no one has touched his heart but her.

"I got drunk and f*#ked up. I will always regret that mistake, Kori. Damn, I gave up not only my best friend that night, but also my girl." I'm sorry, Kori, I am so sorry I hurt you back then. I'm not the same horny teenager. I know now that every action I make has consequences and the ability to hurt the people I care about." "Maybe one day you can forgive me."

Can Kori take a chance on him again? When Kimberly Tucker tries to make trouble again, will their fragile relationship be able to survive?

Kimberly walked around the edge of the bar and placed her hand on Reed's arm. "Hey, baby," she cooed, and I rolled my eyes. I watched as she slid her hand down into the pocket of his jeans and felt around.

I think one of the reasons I loved this book so much was Kori's undying love for Blake. She truly loved him, and his death left her reeling with grief. Despite what is slowly building with Reed, her love for him remains. Sometimes in second chance at love stories, once the author reunites the separated couple, the heroine compares her other relationship and it pales in comparison to her first love. This wasn't the case, and that made the story line more believable. You can have more than one great love in real life and in fiction. This book was wonderful and there will be a follow up for two of the secondary characters. My 1-click finger will be ready!

If he winked one more time I was going to scream. Crybaby Lori and constantly apologizing Reed ...that's the whole story.Plus the cheesy introduction of the next book by the not so subtle cliffhanger...please.

HASH(0x9dc2e0fc) out of 5 stars Fantastic beginning to a new series!! I loved Reed and Kori together!! April 17 2015
By Kirsten - Book Lunatic - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 stars
This was a great book about love, life, forgiveness and second chances. Kori was hurt as a teenager by Reed. She moved on in her life, and discovered Blake. Blake taught her how to love completely, and then was taken from her life just when she needed him most. The loss of Blake brought Kori back home, where she focused on herself and her son, Rhett. Running into Reed only brought her painful memories from the past, until she decided to let go of that and move forward. It wasn't easy because she was choosing to move forward with her life now, as a single mom and young woman who lost a great deal. Reed, for his part, has always regretted his actions in the past, and has done a great deal of growing up himself. I loved that he offered to be there for Kori as a friend, because that is what they had always been before the mistake. It wasn't easy, and it took a lot of time for both Reed and Kori to move forward and accept their feelings for each other. This book pulled me in and didn't let me go, even at the last page I wanted to know what was in store for the characters next. I cannot wait for the next book in this series.
