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.

Forgiven is the second book in The Nash Brothers series and tells the story of Lily and Boden. Forgiven can be read as a standalone, but I still recommend reading Fleeting.

While reading Fleeting, I was always wondering why Lily and Boden acted so weird when they were around each other and now I finally know why. I loved that we got to know their story and it was so emotional. The double perspective really worked in Forgiven because you could read about both their feelings and thoughts.

Lily and Boden are both such strong characters. They both got their heart broken because of an accident and they don’t know whether the other person still has feelings for the other. Lily is such a sweet and kind girl, and I’m happy that she finally stood up for herself. Boden is more of an introverted person which makes it seem like he’s mean, but he’s not, and I really like him.

I also want to mention that I really love the covers. They’re so pretty yet simple. I really like that every book has a specific colour and I cannot wait to find out what the next colour is!

Forgiven was such a quick read and so well written. I really liked Fleeting and Forgiven was just such a good sequel! I cannot wait to read the next book in The Nash Brothers series!
