REDEMPTION (Forgiven Series
Book #2)


Synopsis:


I am not what I have done. I am what I have
overcome. And once I have faced my problems, only then will I find redemption. 

Josh Walker and Lauren Pierce are opposites in
every way. While Lauren is a committed student and girlfriend, Josh is a player
with a very twisted moral compass…

Or is he?

Growing up with an addict for a father, Josh
experienced disappointment from an early age. He puts on a front, shielding
himself from everyone. Until he meets Lauren.

Lauren has it all. An accomplished softball
player she maintains good grades, has great friends, and is in love with her
dedicated boyfriend. Her life is pretty much perfect…until it’s not. 

When two bruised souls collide can they help
each other overcome their problems? Or are some souls just destined to be lost?

EXCERPT:

This time it was
Angie’s turn to laugh. She turned to me her eyes alight with mischief.
“So, Josh, how was your night?”

Damn. I knew at
some point she was going to bring it up. Not knowing how much Lauren had told
her, I figured deflection was the way to go. I smiled, hoping that it didn’t
look fake. “It was an awesome party. Did you have fun?” I asked.

Unfortunately,
Angie knew me way too well. “I had a fantastic time, but stop trying to
change the subject. I saw you dancing with Lauren,” she said with a smirk.

She was never
going to give up. I needed to play this off. Angie didn’t need any more
encouragement in her quest to find me someone. “Yeah, she’s pretty
cool,” I offered, shrugging my shoulders. “She hit the bar with us
after the party.”

I saw Caleb
watching me out of the corner of my eye. He knew something was up—he always
could see right through me. He knew there was more to the story and he was just
waiting for a better time to ask.

Angie, on the
other hand, looked disappointed. Huh? After all of the threats from Emily, she
looked like she was hoping for more. Then again, I doubt Angie had been rooting
for me to have a one-night stand with Lauren.

“Josh,”
she whined. “We have to find you someone.”

I sighed.
“I’m happy with my life.”

She turned her
nose up at me. Guess that was the wrong thing to say. “Oh, so you’re happy
sleeping with a new girl every weekend?” she argued.

“You make
it sound like a bad thing?”

I watched the
anger flash in her eyes. Oops, definitely the wrong thing to say. She stood up
and stepped towards me, forcing me to look up at her. “You’re an ass. With
an attitude like that, you deserve to be alone,” she snarled before
storming off to their room and slamming the door.

“Angie,”
I yelled. Getting up, I walked down and knocked on the door. Even though we
disagreed, I still cared about her and didn’t want her to think I was a
complete jerk. “Angie, I’m sorry. Please come back out.”

The lack of
response spoke volumes. Turning back to the living room, I went and sat back
down on the couch. I looked up to see Caleb glaring at me.

“Did you
need to be such an asshole?”       
“Dude, I
wasn’t trying to be a dick. I just don’t get why she’s so determined to set me
up.”
Caleb shook his
head at me. “Is it really so bad? Angie just wants to see you happy.”
“I don’t
need a girl in my life to make me happy. Why is that so hard for you two to
understand?” I asked, exasperated.

Caleb leaned
forward to rest his forearms on his thighs and clasped his hands together. He
took a deep breath before beginning. “Josh, I’ve known you for three years
and I know for a fact you’re not happy, and lately it’s been getting
worse.”
\
He stopped to
look down and when he looked back up again I could see the annoyance in his
eyes. “Since you haven’t seen your dad lately, that’s not the reason. And
it’s total bullshit that you’re happy screwing a different girl every
night.”

That sweeping
assumption was like gas to a flame. Who was Caleb to determine what made me
happy?

“What gives
you the right to tell me what I want? I’m not you, Caleb. If there was someone
I really wanted, I’d go after them, not run away. There just isn’t one that
fits that category.” I turned to head back to my bedroom when Caleb’s
voice stopped me.

“I know
something happened between you and Lauren last night.”

A thousand
different explanations raced through my mind but before I could say anything he
put his hand up to stop me. “Don’t even try to deny it. It’s written all
over your face. I’m not sure exactly what happened, nor do I want to know, but
if you’re gonna keep sleeping with anything that breathes, please stay away
from Angie’s friends.” Avoiding my gaze he looked down to the floor,
rubbing the back of his neck in a way that made me think I wouldn’t like what
he was going to say. “I wouldn’t want to have to choose between you and
her,” he said sadly.
