“The thing he loves most in the world will kill him. It’s only a matter of time…”

College student Charlotte O’Brien is lost and she can’t find her way home. Devastated by her parents’ tragic deaths, she aches for any kind of connection . . . and finds it in a man who is all wrong for her. Jason Leer is a rough-hewn steer wrestler from Oklahoma-and the hottest thing Charlotte has ever laid eyes on. Yet he has his own dark secrets . . .

Burying herself in Jason, Charlotte soon discovers that life doesn’t have to be so painful. When they’re together their passion eclipses everything and Charlotte can finally begin to see a way out of the darkness of her past. Fighting for a future with Jason won’t be easy, but for the first time since her parents’ death, this lost soul might have finally found a place that feels like home.


Review: Reading Forgive Me was like living another person’s life for a few hours. I was able to see the world through Charlotte’s eyes, feel the love she has for Jason and feel the pain she had to endure.

I’ve never been a fan of cowboys,  however, Eliza Freed made me fall in love with Jason. Like Charlotte, I grew up in a small town and always dreamed of something more. This made me really connect with Charlotte right from the beginning of the book. She is stubborn, smart and completely in love with a sexy, talented cowboy, Jason Leer. To me, Jason started off as a weak character but quickly became Charlotte’s rock. While dealing with tough life events, Charlotte finds that the only person that can help her is Jason. I love that both Charlotte and Jason grow and change throughout the story. They were both immature in their own way but, honestly, who isn’t?

I was a little disappointed at the amount of sex that was in this book. Yes, it was hot and steamy but it was a bit much. It seemed like sex was the only way Charlotte and Jason ever communicated. Call me old fashioned but I think there is more to a relationship than physical needs.

I absolutely hated the ending. I was left with several unanswered questions and mixed emotions. I couldn’t put this book down but when I finished it, I almost threw my Kindle across the room. I stayed awake for at least 2 hours trying to piece together what might have happened.

Despite the million love scenes and cliffhanger ending, this was an enjoyable book. I think Forgive Me would make a good chick flick. I cannot wait to read the next book in the Lost Souls series.

Favorite Quote: “This is Bourbon Street, isn’t it? Where’s the freakin bourbon?”

    Hi Heather!
    Thank you for reading and reviewing FORGIVE ME. I had a similar reaction when I did the first read through. And I love your quote! Where is all the bourbon?
