Whisper Forever by C.A. Harms
I wanted to forget him so many times. Erase the memories we shared and pretend he didn’t exist. It would have made his absence easier to accept.
Lucas Rivers broke my heart more than once.
In my world he was my guy, the one I’d grow old with and laugh with. But things aren’t that simple, and time changes everything.
That naive girl with dreams of happily-ever-afters was gone.
I didn’t need a man to complete me. I was enough—no, I was more than enough. I was strong and determined. I was Madelyn Emery, and never again would a boy break my heart.
But the moment Lucas returned after four years, acting like we could pick up where we left off, that strength inside me shifted. The more I tried to ignore his efforts, the harder he fought.
How can one simple word whispered by one man mean so very much?
I received a book from the author for an honest review.
This is a 2nd chance love/Friends to Lovers story and it kept me from the very 1st. I sat and counted put it down. The story of Lucas and Maddie was full of angst and hurt with a side of chemistry and arrogance.
Maddie declared her love for Lucas at age 9. Well of course Lucas being a 10-year-old boy thought she was super gross for suggesting such a statement. Even though Maddie’s heart was broken and kept getting broken by Lucas, she still couldn’t shake the love she has for him.
Lucas thought of Maddie as his friend. His buddy. When he grew more and more popular he didn’t have time for his best friend anymore. He has willing and able females to keep him entertained. Football and big money was all he knew and all he cared for. When the karma train kick his butt back to the small town they are both from, THAT is when he opens his eyes and SEES his best friend as more than just a buddy but a WOMAN!!
I loved seeing Lucas grovel and chase Maddie but I also loved seeing he finally give in and accept his words of love and of caring. I think the emotions Maddie feels over not wanting to be a 2nd choice are legit because I would feel the same way. The couple go through a lot in this book but the epilogue was awesome and I loved that we got 2 epilogues essentially. We get a his and her’s POV. Each one makes you hear t a bit gooier then it already was.
