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.

Reed Jackson has done a lot of growing up in the last few years and the one thing he regrets more than anything is cheating on Kori. Reed has and always will love Kori and now that she has a little boy it makes absolutely no difference to Reed because he loves that boy as much as he loves her. Reed is determined to prove to her he is a changed man and wants to be her friend again like they used to be and then if by some miracle she can forgive him maybe they can give their relationship a second chance too. Healing hearts, second chances and forever loves come together in a beautiful mix that I loved.
I laughed, I cried, I may or may not have drooled over Reed on occasion, and cried some more. This one is an emotional read with real life situations we can relate to.
Kori is coming home while trying to deal with a tragic loss and get her life back together.
Her only concern about home is Reed. Reed is a reminder of heartbreak, of a past she has no need to repeat.
Reed is a grown man, no longer the kid she left behind. He's a different person and has his own reasons for what happened in their past that drove them apart.
It's hard not to give anything away, I loved Reed from the beginning, yes he made a mistake when he was 18 but he's not that lost boy anymore. Reed is a man. A man who wants to help Kori, even if she never looks at him in a romantic way again he wants to be there for her and her son.
Loved the book, can't wait for the next in the series, Kori may have been a bit whiny at times but keep reading, this book is worth it!!
