Blog Tour: Forgiven by J.B McGee

Forgiven by J.B McGee.

Review and Giveaway.

Title: Forgiven (This #3) 
Author: J.B. McGee 
Genre: New Adult 
Publication Date: May 16, 2013 
Event organized by: Literati Literature Lovers 

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 


Alicia's Review:

I absolutely LOVE this series! I love the different POV's we get from a selection of different characters. Gabby and Bradley are both really easy to connect with emotionally and that's something that I need in a book to thoroughly enjoy it.

Bradley had me at his first appearance in Broken. He is just delicious! Ian was also someone who I thought was wonderful in Broken at the beginning but I guess you don't truly know somebody until there are issues. Gabby and Bradley face huge issues in Forgiven and something take a lot to forgive.  

Bradley is torn between the woman he loves and wants to spend the rest of his life with and an ex who has come back on the scene claiming to be pregnant with his child. I think as a couple they handle this situation brilliantly at times but also don't communicate at other times. 

Gabby has issues and when things get tough, she takes flight. She's off out of there but in Forgiven she starts to realise she can't keep running. I think she makes huge progress in Forgiven and considering the circumstances, deals with things that mess with her head very well. 

However, Bradley has some character adjustments in Forgiven and suddenly becomes insecure. I can understand why he would become insecure with him never having a relationship that wasn't just casual in the past. I didn't like some of the things Bradley did, it was too far out of character for me. 

There is some really emotional things that happen in Forgiven and they made me sob... real hard, takes-my-breath-away sobs. 

I can't wait for the next installment of 'This' series.

I give Forgiven 4.5 STARS!!
