**This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review**

Forgiven
by J.B. McGee

A New Adult Romance






Synopsis:


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

Review:


**If you have not read Broken, Mending or Conspiring you really must, Forgiven is not a stand-alone book**


Star Rating: 3 out of 5
Heat Rating:  Mild to Simmering


J.B McGee writes stories that are filled with struggles, drama and emotional turmoil, but through it all her characters continue to prove that when two people have "this" between them nothing else matters. Gabby and Bradley show us that love is worth the risk, the anguish and the fight.  In your lifetime when you find "this" it is the light during the struggles and dark times.

Forgiven finished off the This series and the story of Bradley and Gabby beautifully.  The story is written in the different POV's of Gabby, Bradley and even Sam.  Having all the different perspectives going on really added another extra layer of interest to this final installment.  (I love a POV from male characters so this is a bonus for me).

The last installment of the This series (Broken, Mending and Conspiring) wraps up all the open questions from the previous books, reveals a few new twists and still is leaves the reader satisfied with how it all ends.  If you have read the previous books in the series then Forgiven is something you should go ahead and scoop up so you can see how it all comes to a close.  (Closure is always a good thing)  IF you haven't read the previous books and you enjoy New Adult books,  then the This series, is something you might want to add to your TBR pile.
