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.

At the first book, we saw Bowen as a bitter and salty man. Aarons did an amazing job foreshadowing Bowen’s character, making us want to know more and peel back his layers. And layers there were! After 10 years apart, we saw so many changes in Bowen as he became a shadow of his former self. After the accident, we initially assume it’s because of the accident itself. However, we soon find out there is a secret which is the festering wound in the aftermath of the accident. But what could it be? That’s where I tell you that you have to read the book. I can’t spoil it for you, but I can certainly tell you more about Bowen, Lily, and why I enjoyed this book.

Most times when you find love at a young age, it rarely lasts because it doesn’t have the depth or ability to mature. For those lucky few, they are able to grow together. I would firmly place Bowen and Lily in the slim few who had what it takes. Because even though they were taken from each other in the most horrid of circumstances and suffer terrible emotional and physical blows, the sincerity and purity of their love never diminished. Ten years apart and they loved each other in a parallel fashion – never able to find joy the arms or face of the one they loved, but the love sustained regardless. I think that was my favorite part of this book. Sometimes love doesn’t conquer all, but it can give you the strength to fight.

Bowen and Lily were both fighters. Surly Bowen fought for his family and for Lily to have a good life. Lily was a shadow fighter; she seemed so sweet, delicate, and docile at first glance. But when she peeled back her own layers, that’s when she found the gumption to fight for herself and what her heart has always wanted. So while these two may not appear to be a matching set, make no mistake…not only are they the real deal, but they are also in it to win it. The beauty of their love story is the journey it takes from inception to total actualization.

I love these Nash brothers and can’t wait to see what Aarons has in store for us next!

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.
