Publisher's Summary

She's running from an abusive past. He's angry at God for the death of his brother. Can these two hardened souls find love and healing together?

If there's one thing Jess Peterson has learned from her past, it's that she can use relationships to feel in control, but when she meets Emily and starts seeing the way she lives, Jess begins to wonder if there is more than meaningless flings in life.

Chad Michaels didn't always jump from woman to woman, but when his brother was killed, he turned away from God and decided not to fall in love again. That is, until he met Jess. Something about her draws him in, but when she begins seeking God, will it tear them apart?

Find out in the second stand-alone Heartbeats University book.

Great Read

A Past Forgiven (Heartbeats University #2) was a great read by Lorana Hoopes. Jess Peterson has been abused in her past and completely lost her self worth. She finds herself paired with a Christian roommate and begins to wonder if God is looking down on her too. Her decisions are trying to lead her astray until she winds up pregnant and needing to make major changes. Chad has been trying to heal from his past but tries to hide his pain behind meaningless relationships. I really loved reading Jess and Chad's story and can't wait to read more by the author.

Beautifully written!

A Past Forgiven is such a wonderfully written inspirational book! I listened in one sitting. This story is about Jess who is now at college, has a chip on her shoulder, and a past that is pulling her down. She meets Chad who also is struggling as he is working through some things that have happened to him. Together, these two find the way to happiness. It's a story of love and forgiveness, new relationships and redemption and a new starts. Lorana Hoopes has such a great way of tackling difficult topics and showing how faith can help you through. It's a great listen narrated by the author herself, letting us feel each emotion as she intends. The story of hope and healing makes your heart fill with love.

Wow

Ms. Hoopes has written another great book. What happens when your'e trying to escape a past that has turned you bitter. You have a roommate who is a Christian and nothing seems to upset her. In this book they seemed to do a lot of things they should not. But eventually they find God That's what happens with Jess and Chase. You need to know what makes them make the decisions they do. Great book and I highly recommend it.
I did receive a free code to get the book to hear it but not for the book itself. Its well worth paying for the book. She does a great job narrating the story. I gave this review of my own free will and honest opinion.

Very Good Book

Lorana does a wonderful job narrating! I really enjoyed the story. It did a good job of bringing to light abuse and how it can affect our future decisions. It also covers being angry at and blaming God for things and how we need to not do that. This book is a book of redemption and it leaves you feeling good.
