[Review] Forgiving Reed by C. A. Harms


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 Rhetts 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?

Realistically, I would give this book a 3.5. 
It was definitely a story about love, a word used a gazillion times. Kori, bless her, had her heart broken and moved away leaving it all behind her. She had a year long relationship with Blake who showed her how to love how it felt to be loved, something she didn't believe would happen after her break up from cheating Reed. Heavily pregnant, Blake and Kori head out for a surprise trip when disaster strikes, tearing Blake from her life, and bringing along Rhett, their son.
This part of the story crumbled me as you can see from my 1st update.
Kori moves back home to bring her son up and pick up the destroyed pieces of her heart and life, for that I honestly commend Kori.
It's that move that brings Reed back into her life, now no longer a stupid teen, but a gorgeous, swoon worthy man (yes, the cover stayed in my head the whole time, I mean come on... *drools*)
It's a slow process but they manage to rekindle their spark and have an amazing love FILLED relationship as Reed becomes a 2nd father to Rhett who both adore each other.
There are times in the book where a mishap happens courtesy of illness, near death and the one woman who destroyed them in the 1st place but other than that, there isn't much angst.
It certainly is a tale about finding your one and only, just like we all do, but if you're like me and sat at home dreaming of a Reed, only to get someone like, Gavin, the farm hand.
My only argh moment while reading was when a saw the past tense of drag written as drug... i'm certain it's dragged.
A cute romantic story with only minor complications that get in the way of that... 
The 1st 20-ish chapters are in Kori's P.O.V and the last 12 I think are in Reeds. it was nice to read and see it through both of their eye's.
