Forgiven Book Cover


Everyone has a past…good or bad, they are always there. They lurk and linger in the shadows, sometimes reappearing at the most inconvenient times.

Gabby and Bradley thought that their pasts would remain dormant, that happiness was theirs for the taking. Still the strongest of relationships can be rocked by the ugliness from a previous life, even if it seems to be a world away. The fact remains an ugly past is never distant. It taints everything it touches, drives permanent rifts between loved ones, and sometimes can ruin everything. Gabby and Bradley must find the only way to battle the past. Forgiveness becomes a light through the darkness, a guide for the lost, and hope for the hopeless. With forgiveness comes bright, new beginnings

“Sometimes silence means more than empty words filled with pity and regret. He squeezes my hand, and I know that is his way of saying that I’m not alone. That even though he doesn’t know what it feels like to be me, that because I hurt, he hurts. For the first time in my life, I find a great deal of comfort knowing that I don’t have carry this burden all alone.”

Forgiven (This #3) by J.B. McGee is the continued story of Bradley and Gabby. It started a little too slow for my taste, but once it picked up the pace I was completed sucked in to the story. Gabby and Bradley seem to be in a good place with one another except for the lingering issue if Bradley is the father of Veronica’s unborn baby.  McGee keeps the story based on moral principles and Gabby sticks to them no matter how much she desires to do otherwise.

Forgiveness is needed by many of the characters in this book and some of the issues are too intense to overlook. I stopped short of giving Forgiven a 5 star rating because the ending seemed quite rushed. Gabby and Bradley have a true love story that is based on understanding, mutual respect, vulnerability, and of course, forgiveness. Now, I look forward to reading the story of Gabby’s sister, Sam!!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Forgiven in exchange for an honest review.
