Reed keeps excusing his betrayal years ago on being a young, horndog, teenager. When Kori walks in on Reed with another girl, she leaves for college and never looks back .... UNTIL... until a tragic loss forces her back home to Georgia. It was good to see Kori got to experience true love, not the kind of 'love' that Reed offered, but the true love that Blake gave. I agree with Maria about Blake's affections for Kori but would change how she related that to Reed. To me, Blake didn't teach Kori how to love, but instead taught her how to recognize what love really is. Kori knew how to love, knowing how to recognize it being bestowed upon her was what she needed. Blake loved Kori unselfishly.
Blake and Reed were total opposites. Reed was more selfish and self centered while Blake was giving and thoughtful. Yes, Reed goes through a tragedy too and he learns from that loss, but I'd like to know more of Reed's POV early on in the book. I'd like to know just when he realized how deeply he hurt Kori and when it mattered to him that he did. What did he do when Kori walked in on him and Kim? Did he even stop? Did he even try to talk to Kori before she left? Did he even care? When did he realize what he lost, who he lost? As he and Kori start reconnecting, why does he flaunt his flirtations in front of her? What does it take to teach this man a lesson? I never accepted his excuses. Words are cheap, actions show truth. (He did score points when he went to Boston! Read the book for the reason.)
Reed was jealous of Blake. Why? Was it because he knew Blake was the real thing when he was a fake wannabe? Was it because Reed knew HE was the reason Blake became a part of Kori's life? Was it because he didn't know how to love like Blake loved? Was it because he didn't know how to compete with a ghost?
I would love to see a sequel written from Reed''s POV. We do get to watch Reed grow and be who and what Kori needs. He is gutsy and doesn't know what the words 'give up' mean. We just don't get to see the depth of the pain he lives with from the choices he made. We do see Kori's gut wrenching pain, grief and finally healing. We also get to see Reed's role in that healing. Forgiving Reed is a book worth reading.... and the title is so, so apt.
There were ups and downs. Little by little her heart began to beat again. Her son was her chance of joy and he deserved more. The family helped. Friends helped. Yet, Reed was the one who finally held her while she cried out her pain. It was the beginning of her new life. She learned he wasn't the same immature teen from before.
Did they have a chance? Could they be a family?
To say there were ups and downs is too simplistic. In fact, if I have any issues with the story, maybe just a few too many problems that seemed to permanently pull them apart.
Her best friend is a riot. Together they are fierce. The parents are truly good people as are most of the friends. There's a real piece of work who wants to tear them apart.
Cry a little, laugh a little, and enjoy this story. I also listened to the audio. The narrator was great with the soft southern voice of Kori.
