Forgiven by Carrie Aarons

AVAILABLE NOW  |   Nash Brothers, #2


Book Blurb:

In a split-second, a car crash killed almost everything between them. Ten years later, can one accidental ride fix tattered spirits, uncertain futures, and broken hearts?

Lily Grantham has always done what she’s been told. The daughter of a senator, she grew up as the good girl of Fawn Hill, and carried that torch right on through to adulthood. Her only wild streak? Bowen Nash. She loved that boy since the day they laid eyes on each other, and it nearly ended them both. A decade later, and Lily still can’t move on. Even if Bowen has made it clear he doesn’t love her anymore.

Bowen Nash never wanted the life he’s trapped in. Destined for baseball fame and the love of his high-school sweetheart, that existence vanished in the flip of an old pickup. Now, he’s stuck in the town that produced his worst nightmare. Pretending to hate Lily Grantham guts him day in and day out. But to protect her from the ultimate secret, it’s necessary to break his own heart each time they pass on the street.

They’ve been fighting fate for as long as it’s been chasing them. And now, time is up.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

The glimpses that we got of Lily and Bowen in Fleeting (Nash Brothers #1) were enough breadcrumbs to work me up into a frenzy about reading Forgiven. They both still clearly loved one another, so what happened that night 10 years ago when they got into a car accident that pulled them apart the way that it did? Why couldn’t they work things out?

Forgiven is full of all the best angsty goodness. It’s a wonderful second-chance romance with a forbidden twist. When Keaton and Presley (from Fleeting) ask their brother and best friend, respectively, to be the best man and maid of honor in their upcoming wedding, Bowen and Lily are forced into each other’s orbits after avoiding one another for a decade. As much as it pains Bow to be around her, he just can’t hide how miserable he is. Unfortunately, Lily takes that as him hating her, and she has no idea why.

Our love had been destroyed in the car crash, and it was floating somewhere between the curve in the road, the place Bowen had swerved to avoid a deer, and the dashboard my head had slammed into.

If she only knew. Little by little, the walls that Bowen has surrounding himself break down, and he can’t help himself when it comes to her. He still loves her, has always loved her. And her him. But is it enough to risk a secret that would ruin the both of them a second time?

I must admit, once the reason why Bowen had stayed away from Lily all this time was revealed, I kind of wanted to smack him. I get why he did what he did as a scared 18 year old, but he could have saved them both all kinds of emotional turmoil had he just come clean with Lily once they were both grown adults. But once the ugly truth is all out in the open, and a little time goes by for healing, Bowen and Lily rise above the hurt and anger, and forge their own way. They may have lost 10 years together, but there is no lack of love, support and understanding between them.

This book was the best kind of second-chance romance. I can’t wait to see what Carrie Aarons brings to the twins next! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Author of romance novels such as Red Card and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the stories she dreams up, and the yoga pant dress code, much better.

When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She lives in the suburbs of New Jersey with her husband, daughter and dog.
