Forgiving Reed Cover


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 Rhett's 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?


“What’s wrong, moving to the city take all the country outta ya? You forget how to get dirty, princess?”

I glared up over the side of the gate next to me and Reed’s face held nothing but amusement. This of course only made the anger boil within my chest. This man seemed to have the capability of pissing me off like no other. I think he knew he held that power as well, he tends to use it often.

Placing my hand on my hip, I narrowed my eyes just a little more. “Don’t you dare call me Princess, I’m not some prissy girl and you know it. What is it with you trying to piss me off all the time? I thought you wanted to be friends?”

He leaned against the gate and reached out in my direction. Gently, he pulled a piece of straw from my hair and let it drop to the ground. He never spoke a word as his thumb swept over my jaw. The feel of is touch against my skin, had my eyes fluttering closed. I didn’t want to enjoy his attention but it was inevitable.

Our eyes met as he pulled his hand back and he grinned. “I think the question you need to be asking yourself is why I get under your skin so bad? I don’t think anything I do or don’t do is the problem. I think it’s the feelings that they cause in you. Those feelings you can’t seem to control, but you’re fighting so hard to hide.”

He pushed off from the fence and walked off to the barn entrance. Leaving me standing there watching his fine ass walk away.

I gritted my teeth and groaned out in frustration. Stomping my feet like one of my students, I kicked at the dirt and shook my hands dry. I needed to get out of here … like now. I spun around and stormed off toward the house. That man irritated me, he drove me insane.

He was wrong, so wrong. I knew what I was feeling and it was plain old aggravation. Nothing more than a man that made my blood boil. Dumb ass cowboy thought he knew me. He don’t know me, not anymore.

My Review: 
This was an amazing romance that just grabbed me by the heartstrings!  It is a beautifully well written and deeply emotional book that I was unwilling to put down until the end.  Kori is a young woman who is returning home to heal from the death of her boyfriend and birth of her son, which happened on the same day.  She needs the love and support of her family and best friend to help handle her grief and the trials of single motherhood to a newborn.  Reed is also living in her hometown and he is the man who broke her heart and shattered her trust.  Reed needs her forgiveness as he is intent on earning back her friendship and hopefully her love.  I loved the chemistry between these two wonderful characters as they slowly developed a new yet fragile relationship.  I highly recommend this book to lovers of emotional romances with depth of both characters and storyline.  I am looking forward to reading more books by this wonderful author. ~Booklover Sue
