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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Forgiving Reed follows the story of Kori. After a devastating tragedy she collects her sorrow and her son and returns to her small hometown in the south. My heart broke for her. But I also cheered her strength in the face of taht heartbreak. She somehow found a way to keep it together just enough for her son, Rhett. The meaning behind his name was a cute story and quite meaningful to Kori. I enjoyed getting the flashbacks of Kori's time with Blake (Rhett's father). Those moments were bittersweet to read. Of course, her return home brings her past into her present.
Enter Reed Jackson. Kori's high school boyfriend. They parted on less than amicable terms but he has done a lot of growing up in the years she was in Boston. Reed is kind, giving, gorgeous and determined. He wants to move past his mistakes with Kori and rekindle their friendship at the very least. He had also suffered an unfortunate loss that affected him deeply. I admired his determination and devotion. His patience and persistence really endeared him to me. And getting to witness him interact with baby Rhett upped his swoon factor. The connection between them was precious and what helped convince Kori that he had changed.
It took a while for Reed and Kori to sort through their issues but it was worth it. Their love story wasn't easy or happy but it was theirs and they owned it.Read more ›
