Overview

Arianna 'Ari' Williams thought she experienced the depths of true love until the man of her dreams dismissed her with no explanation. Heartbroken and humiliated, she found herself changing the course of her life and picking up the pieces of her shattered heart. Now four years later, she has a successful career, amazing friends, and a young son with crystal blue eyes that reminds her every day of the love she imagined. Emotionally she has moved on but the wounds never healed.

Reed Matthews has it all. Playing professional football was always his dream. Being one of the most successful wide receivers in the league comes with money, fame, and all the women he wants. Even with all his wishes coming true, he never stops thinking of the one woman that owned his soul four years ago.

A chance encounter brings Reed to the realization that Ari Williams not only hid a life changing secret from him, but also things weren't as they seemed all those years ago. He's determined to get her back and build their lives together.

When the truth behind their deception is revealed- friendships are tested, families are torn apart, and the one person behind it all is relentless.

Can Reed protect those he loves and build the future he dreamed of?

*Due to graphic language and explicit sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 18+

## FABULOUS. I truly enjoyed reading this story. I don't read 2nd chance stories very often because there is so much bitterness. However, after reading one of the reviews stating that the misunderstanding is cleared up quickly, I decided to give this book a try. Boy, I'm so happy I did. What a remarkable story this author wrote. I was captivated and intrigued all the way through. The hero was perfection personified. Jeez, I adored his possessive tendencies. Probably would suck in real life but was perfect for fiction! Man, this guy can dirty talk. I loved how hot the sex scenes were. And I really liked the heroine as well. Kudos to the author for such a complete ending. What an awesome reward for us readers. I will definitely read again and hope Luke has a story of his own.

LOVE REED & ARI!!!!! Thank you Ahren Sanders! You have finally done the one thing I wish the other authors would do; you wrote a wonderful book about true love. Finally a book with open honestly in an relationship. It was refreshing seeing the main characters being honest and not hiding anything....EVER(Not including the breakup confusion). When Reed stood up to his mom about  Ari I just wanted to jump up and down for joy. Finally a man not listening to anyone else but whats in his heart. So happy to see Ari have the love and support of her lil family. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! Thank You again for this amazing story.Can't wait to read more from this author.

Reed’s Reckoning is a beautiful novel, full of twists, angst, secrets and lies and so much love. The story is heartbreakingly beautiful and the writing is wonderful. However, what I loved the most about this book is its message. Reed’s Reckoning speaks about the effort a relationship really needs. It also speaks about the fact that you never give up on your love, no matter if it’s a romantic, a friendly or family love. Most books focus on the sweet romantic or sexy aspect of love, but they don’t really display that need of effort. And that’s why I loved this book so much. Not only the message of the book is incredible, but also the characters are outstanding, as well! The characters are indeed outstanding! There are million different little things that I loved about each one and about all of them together as a team. However, what I loved and admired so much is that they all take responsibility of their actions. Yes they make mistakes; who doesn’t? The question is who claims those mistaktes. Who says “Yes I made that mistake. I was wrong and I am sorry.” Who says that and with utter sincerity? Well these characters here do that. I’ve never been so proud of book characters in my life!! I am not going to give ANY spoilers. Nope. Not one of them..Or maybe I will give you something, just a little something to entice you! “..when I told her I wanted to get to know her again, but she doesn’t realize I was being soft. What I really wanted to say was, ‘you’re going to be in my bed again, and I’m never letting you go’. Baby steps.” “In case you were wondering, he’s a Super Bowl baby.” “What the hell does that mean?” “He was conceived the night FSU won the Sugar Bowl.” A smile lights up his face and his eyes twinkle. “Guess I was really on my game that night.” “You’re an idiot.” I say playfully…… Reed’s Reckoning is really a remarkable book that teaches the meaning of love and the meaning of true pure friendship. Personal Note to the Readers: Pay attention to your family and friends. Don’t let them get drowned in mental disorders. Help them - Don’t ignore the flags and take the easy way out by pretending everything’s ok. Thank you Ahren Sanders for raising the matter of mental disorders. Outstanding Characters. Amazing Story. Soo, 4.5 Magnificent Stars go to Reed’s Reckoning.

A sweet and heart-breaking romance. A few consistent punctuation issues throughout, but still very much enjoyed this couple's second chance.

LOVED IT! I was a little afraid to start this read when I saw that it was about 279 pages and it got straight into it within the first few chapters. It took me about a day and half to finish. I would have finished it in one sitting if i didn't have to WORK! The author was great at detailing the back story between the 2 main characters. There are some steamy scenes but there's great dialog through out the whole story. I loved all the side characters; Luke, Sophie, Jack and even Cara if you can believe it. There's even a small 20 page book that the author gives you for free at the end of the book that rounds it all out for the reader. All in all a great read!! I think I'll read more from this author!

After plowing through this story because I could not put it down the only thing I can say is that Ahren Sanders is amazing. She writes with a flare that captivates you, and has a knack for creating characters that you can’t help but love. Reeds reckoning is another shining example of Ahrens accomplishments as a writer. This is one of those feel good second chance stories that you will want to read again and again. Not only is it romantic, and hot, but Ahren spins the story enough to make you laugh out loud, cry and get so angry that you want to throw the book to shake the characters up a little. And in the end I found that I had a love affair of my own with Reed Matthews ¿ If you have not read it – what are you waiting for <3

This is the kind of love story that will sweep you off your feet and remind you that true love is worth the work. College sweethearts who through no fault of their own fall prey to a manipulative b*tch, find each other after 5 years. Reed's reckoning comes and he must decide how the rest of their lives will evolve. Without hesitation, he chooses. The rest of the story is what he must overcome in order to deserve, protect, and enjoy the rest of his life. Well written, with endearing characters, this beautiful love story was one I could not put down. Reed is the lover and friend we all want. Persistent, brave,and totally committed he is that man you want to rely on. He will not let you down. Caveman, yes! A little stubborn, absolutely! In the end, he has a heart of gold and is more apt to nurture you and protect you than "beat his chest" like a gorilla. Arianna is such a strong woman. She is the kind of young woman we all admire with her determination to survive and improve her life no matter what the circumstances. She is a character to look up to. The trials these two characters go through while fighting this maniac stalker in their lives, will keep you at the edge of your seats.

i haven't bothered to purchase it because i have read like 3 stories that are like this one. i can add names of the authors and stories later. but it just to predictable regardless of the little twists it claims to have.. just needs a better tore line to crab me... or a different story that isn't used often
