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 by the very talented, Carrie Aarons. It can be read as standalone but I do recommend reading Fleeting so you can get to know the brothers even more. Bowen Nash didn’t say much in Fleeting but he captured my heart so I knew his story was going to be an emotional ride.
Ten years. He has been avoiding his high school sweetheart for ten years. Every time he saw her, it was torture. He wanted to reach out to her. Touch her. Kiss her. Love her. But he couldn’t. He had to walk away after their accident. The one that almost killed her and did kill his baseball career. He has coped with the fact that he lost his chances at the major leagues but he could never forgive himself for that night. He moved on with his life in everything else except when it came to love. He had a successful business, owned a home, had his family. But, she was the only one he has ever loved. Maybe ever will. Is it time to stop avoiding her? Ten years was a long time to hold it all in.
Lily never had closure. They were in love one minute and the next he was gone. Literally. He left town. She didn’t understand the looks he gave her when she did happen to see him around town. Why did he seem to hate her so much? She couldn’t stand it. She didn’t know how much more she could take. His brother was now with her best friend. They had to be around each other. The tension was thick. Every one in town felt it. And they were waiting for it to explode. Who will break first?
I absolutely LOVED this book! I love Keaton Nash, I really do but Bowen has stolen my heart! He might have been a cocky teenager but he was also a swoon-worthy one even back then. And now he is all man. And Lily! Oh…Lily. Watching her go through some shit made me want to give her a high five and a hug. She is stronger than she thinks. Together, I loved these two! They have their obstacles and it’s beautiful to watch them jump through them.
Overall…I am so in love with this series. I. Can. Not. Wait for the next book! I have a feeling I know who is up next and hot damn, it’s going to be hot. Oh, this one was too by the way. Along with sweet and funny.
“I’ll say it for the thousandth time, but I hope you hear me. I don’t know what it is I did to make you hate me so much, but I’m sorry.”
The night of the crash haunts me in my dreams. It plagues my every waking moment and mocks the future I once had.
“I may not have stepped foot in here in ages, but I’ve had many fantasies about getting you between these stacks. There is something so naughty about making out in a library.”
What Reviewers Are Saying about the Nash Brothers…
“So what do I need to do to find a quaint little town like Fawn Hill? And some Nash brothers? Because good golly Miss Molly I am in love with everything here!” -The Book Branch
