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.

descriptionIt's not often I get to venture out of ARC reading land but this one intrigued me and I do LOVE a good second chance love story. Although I personally wouldn't call this one a second chance love story as I never felt Lucas had romantic feelings towards Maddie until he came back to his hometown. A great friendship that he tossed aside when he became popular in high school, sure, but more t
Lucas and Maddie are friends when they are younger and grew up together but drift apart at the beginning of high school. Lucas goes a different route, only interested in football and what it can gain him, going off to college trying to hit it big. Maddie shies away from all that and chooses to concentrate on school and her family's farm. I wouldn't call this a second chance story really as the two are never in any type of romantic relationship. They are simply friends who drift apart. Maddie hol ...more

As its been stated before I'm a grovel whore. I love me some good grovel AND while this book did deliver on the grovel (the Hero continued to apologize even after the H/h were together) I still found the Hero lacking in some ways. Don't get me wrong, he was written well and I did believe in his remorse but I just couldn't get over the fact that had he not been hurt he never would have returned and tried to make up with the heroine.

Here's the thing...I can be a bitch (I own it...). When

3.5-4 stars. My stars are mostly for Lucas. He made some mistakes when he was younger. We ALL do. But he also became a good man that would do anything for Maddy including giving up things that could make him happy. Maddy on the other hand was unbendable when it came to her own plans. Why was everything all about her? I loved her Dad's chat with her towards the end. And it had a great epilogue.

I love second chance romances. It just makes everything sweeter, because they already know what it feels like to lose each other, so they love harder.

I’m not gonna lie, I wanted Lucas to suffer. He was so stupid, arrogant, and blind. Ugh, just thinking about it makes me mad. He admits to being all of this, and when he saw Maddie again for the first time, I reveled in it. He regretted everything he ever did to hurt her in that moment. He didn’t really do anything on purpose. He was just a stupid

If you love books about 2nd chances, then this is the book for you.
Maddie Emery and Lucas Rivers' story was one of the best books CA Harms has written. The story had such a pull that I just couldn't put it down until I forced myself. It's fast moving.
I also loved how selfless Maddie is. Luke's happiness was all she ever wanted. And for Luke it was having all the facts slap in the face. This book proved you can go home again

Whisper Forever has to be CA Harms' BEST BOOK YET! The feels, you guys, the feels!!

I'm a sucker for second-chance romances and CA Harms nailed it. The anguish, the regret, the heartache: all there! The passion, the love, the chemistry...all very much present as well. Ah!! LOVED this book! LOVED IT and ended up reading it practically in one sitting!

I enjoyed the story line. I was able to connect to the characters. The only fault that was small but throughout the book were grammar errors. To some they can over look this, but English was my favorite subject lol

I love the text messages Lucas sends to his girl, "you know that when you get all feisty it turns me on. You using my full name has me kind of excited, not gonna lie." Luke is always up for showing his girl his manliness, “darlin’, I think we both know already that in no way am I lacking,” he said, his voice taking on that deep huskiness I loved. “But if you need me to remind you, I can do that too.” I loved this book, Luke was one sweet man.

From the moment they could walk Lucas and Maddy formed a deep bond their friendship was known by everyone in their town they seemed unbreakable but as they grew older it changed drastically until Lucas moved away.
When Lucas comes home he finds a very different Maddy she's no longer the girl that looks at him with love. I liked the older Maddy, she speaks her mind is focused and independent and is no pushover. Lucas has just begun to realise what he threw away, not only his best friend but the p

I love a good country romance and this didn't disappoint! C.A. Harms has taken the cliché of ‘childhood best friends, girl loves boy, boy leaves and breaks her heart, and then comes back’ second chance romance, and made it entirely her own.

Something that is often forgotten when creating characters, is their flaws. But Harms has created realistic, three dimensional characters, she doesn't shy away from creating a flawed hero and heroine and this just develops the entire story wonderf

I loved this book! Harms is such a great author, and I always look forward to when a new books comes out. This one was no exception! I found it very exciting and extremely hard to put down.

Once again, the characters are fantastic. True to Harms’ previous writing, the character are all individual and interact in ways that feel very realistic. I liked that each one was unique and absolutely loved the way the main characters worked together. They were what truly drew me in.

Audio Version Review:
A beautiful allegory tale about childhood best friends Madelyn & Lucas. A sweet southern small town romance with a bit of angst, lighthearted, & witty southern charm. Chasing dreams while letting others go to chase that dream. Narrator Sarah Puckett did excellent portraying southern drawl & the ability to differentiate between male & female characters is colossal. I absolutely loved Maddie's voice vocals. Her voice is clear, smooth, & modulated. The tone

Just another fabulous story from CA Harms. Major #FanGirl right here. I always know her characters are going to be well written and she is going to make them completely relate-able to real life. The issues and scenarios Madelyn and Lucas go through in this story are all relative to real life.

Lucas and Madelyn were best friends as young children. However high school came along and Lucas became the star football player that everyone loved and they drifted apart, leaving Madelyn heartbroken. Now years later, Lucas is home from college and Lucas wants his best friend back. Only that sweet girl is now a sassy, stubborn, gorgeous woman.

OMG! I loved this book! I absolutely LOVE Madelyn! Her strength, sassiness and stubborn streak was so much fun to see. I absolutely love her attitude and h

Whisper Forever by CA Harms is a lovely friends to lovers book. Madelyn has always held a torch for Luke. All is lost when he goes off to college on a football scholarship. But a career ending injury brings Luke back home, back home to Madelyn. Could this be their chance to find love?

CA Harms was a new to me author. I am glad I gave this book a chance because I really liked it. The blurb is what sold me on it. When Luke whispers, "Forever." That part right there got me. I'm definitely going to

Once again this author has blown me away with her words. This storyline was incredible. It hooked me in and kept me locked in until the very last word. Her characters are always down to earth and very easy to fall in love with. I love stories where the characters have been friends all their lives. One of them is in love with the other and the other seems oblivious. That moment. That "AHA" moment, makes the entire story. This is another great story by an amazing author. I can'

Maddie Emery and Lucas Rivers' story will have you rooting for them while reaching for tissues. The story had such a pull that I was drawn to their 2nd chance love story from page one, word one until the very last word on the very last page. Whisper Forever is such a beautiful and haunting love story that will have you asking where your own Lucas Rivers is.

Madelyn and Lucas, these two made my heart feel like it was going to explode. C.A. as always does a great job giving us the story. The whole story. We begin at age 8 and 10 and work our way up to early twenties. We feel that moment when we know these two were destined to be together. We see how they grew apart. We know the anger that is held with Madelyn.

Lucas became who the school wanted him to be. He forgot his friend. He moved into a new social circle. He dated, went out, and completely aban

CA Harms always brings us books that have me swooning so hard yet reaching for the tissues, her writing is damn near flawless in my opinion. I read this book in one sitting, I was completely engrossed in the story of Lucas and Maddie ands couldn't put it down!

I love a good second chance romance. Luke and Madelyn were childhood best friends. Maddy always had feelings for Luke but he always saw her as his best friend. In high school they grew apart and Luke went on to play college football and Maddy stayed behind.

She finally moved on and has decided that she does not need a man to complete her. Now suddenly Lucas is back and determined to have Madelyn. Can she resist him and keep him at arm’s length?

I went into this book after reading the blurb with high expectations. Often in those instances, you can be let down. But I really wasn't with Whisper Forever!

Lucas and Madelyn had known each other their whole life, and she insisted that they were meant to be together. But that led her to being disappointed by him a number of times. Madelyn rebounded, though! Both main characters were well-written and likeable. The plot was very good, although maybe a bit drawn out for my taste, and the book was

It's taken me so long to find a good book lately and once I started this book I knew I probably should've waited a couple more hours to start it because once I started I couldn't put it down ;) but it was definitely well worth me going to be really tired for work tomorrow. I absolutely loved Lucas and Madelyn's story :)

**************ARC provided for an honest review***********************
So, my only complaint is that Madelyn gave in so easily/quickly.
Luke was very repentant, but he didn’t specifically come back for her, and I wonder if she wasn’t the attractive girl she grew up to be would he have pursued her? Or would he have only tried to get their friendship back?
The ending was cute, but not unexpected since there was little to no drama to muck it up.
