Publisher's Summary

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?

“Forever.”

Recommended for mature audiences.

Countryside Southern Charm!

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 & pace are perfect and everything flows through smoothly. A candied sweet & sassy escapade listen.

Western Second Chance Romance. Awesome Performance

I really loved learning about Lucas & Maddie, and I enjoyed following their new journey!

Brilliant perfomance by Sarah Puckett. Her western/country accent was delightful as she definitely nailed it, let alone she did an excellent male narration. However, I would have love it even more if this had been a dual narration (male & female narrators).

This is my first book by Auhtor C.A. Harris and definitely not my last. I really enjoyed "Whisper Forever", the story was beautifully well written; the angst, sweetness, sexyness and emotions were well balanced. The characters likeable and believable. Just love it!!

Left me wanting more

I loved Lucas and Maddie, there is such a sweet history between the two of them. Not what I'd typically call a second chance romance, since they've never actually dated before, it did still have the feel of a couple re-finding each other.

A couple of great twists made things far from smooth sailing and helped make this sweet romance a lot of fun to listen to. The book is well written and the emotions of the characters come alive on the page, what they felt, I felt.

The character voices are very well done, easily recognizable they matched the characters accents and personalities. Great delivery, it was dynamic and carried the emotions of the scenes.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Sweet, and Heartwarming Second Chance Romance!

This was such a sweet and heartwarming second chance romance. Maddie Emery and Lucas Rivers have been best friends all their lives. Maddie was sure they would marry one day and have a beautiful life like her parents. But in high school, when Lucas became the star quarterback, he became arrogant and self centered as well. He left for college never looking back. Maddie supported him through it all, even though he broke her heart. Now Lucas is home after an injury and he is not proud of the man he was. He missed where he came from and he especially missed Maddie. Now he is determined to make things right and convince her that he will never leave or break her heart again. Maddie is shocked to see Lucas home again. She moved on with her life, determined to never let a man make her feel bad about herself again. But Lucas makes her feel things she didn't want to feel, and she isn't sure she could survive him leaving again. I really enjoyed this friends to lovers romance. It has all the feels, great secondary characters, and a sweet and heartwarming storyline.
Sarah Puckett does a terrific job capturing each characters personality. Her voice changes were distinct and her intonations were spot on, bringing this story to life, and making it an enjoyable listen.

Perma Swoon

Such an amazing second chance small town romance that has all the feels built in. Childhood friends where one feels a bit more than the other and then life takes them away. I loved the spunk of Madelyn and what a strong woman she grew into. Lucas was the high school small town super star who was forced to grow up. The dynamic between the two was perfect and the things Lucas said and did left me swooning.

This listen filled my heart with so much love and hope

Thoroughly enjoyed the story

Wow. I liked the story. Lucas and Maddie were fun to follow around. I was highly frustrated with the two of them. I will admit, at one point I just turned it off and came back a couple of days later. But it was enjoyable. The narrator did a good job. I'll be looking for more from her.

A forever love ❤️

Really adorable story! I love Maddie’s sass and whit! Luke is every bit of a southern charmer every girl dreams of. Yes... it took him years to figure it out, but when he did he went all out! Little angst but just enough to make it interesting. The narration is perfect, Sarah is awesome! Her male POV is really good!

Such great romance

This is my introduction to C.A. Harris and I fell in love instantly! Maddie and Lucas are amazing characters and well written. I was rooting for them the entire time. Sarah Puckett's narration was perfection! This story, along with the narration, pulls you in, tugs at your heartstrings and doesn't let go. This was well done and I look forward to reading more from C.A. Harris!

Second Chance Love Story

This was my first C.A. Harms's book. This is a beautiful second chance love story. My heart broke for Madelyn, while she was waiting after Lucas's attention. She's sweet and strong at the same time. Lucas is handsome, and after his return, he was really possessive and protective with Madelyn. I love the Epilogue and their beautiful HEA. The narration was really well done, as always with Sarah Puckett. She has the perfect voice to bring the intensity of this story. I enjoyed my listening. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

First Love

C.A. Harms pulled me in with this sweet,sexy, hot southern listen. I love the stories where they love each other for the longest time. Madelyn in this book declared her love for Lucas when she was 9 and he was 10. Time changes people, yet the soft spot remained regardless of his lack of attention. I really enjoyed seeing the characters mature in this book and follow their dreams. The sacrifice that Madelyn was willing to do was awesome.
The performance by Sarah Puckett was spectacular. She added the right emotions and had distinguished voices for the various characters. I can’t say enough good things about this book, author or narrator. I loved it!

Great Story, Great Listen!!

I loved this book, C.A Harms created a wonderful story and characters as well. Her writing style is natural and she draws you in from the start. The story and characters develops nicely and is fast paced, so much so I did not put the book down until the end. I loved both leads, Madelyn and Lucas, also loved the support they got from their families. It was good to see and a nice tough. I highly recommend this book, thank you C.A Harms for a great read. I am looking forward to reading more of your work.

Sarah Puckett delivers another wonderful performance!! She performs all the different voices, switches characters effortlessly and helps bring them to life right off of the pages. She is a natural talent and her story telling is amazing. Thank you for another great listen!!
