Forgiven by J.B. McGee ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway


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


Forgiven is the third installment in the This series by J.B. McGee, and I just really have a special place in my heart for Bradley and Gabby.  They have grown together, overcome obstacles, and are finally getting their chance at a happy future together.  4 stars

Forgiven picks right back up where Mending left off.  We get to see Gabby and Bradley's relationship continue to develop as they plan their future, and see them over come the mess that Veronica and Ian have created.  We also get to see Gabby meet her father, and come to terms with her emotions regarding the man who broke her down emotionally.  

Forgiven is a heart warming, emotional love story about forgiveness that will touch you deep within your soul.  I did not feel like Gabby and Bradley's story was complete and was so excited when J.B. announced that we will getting more Gabby and Bradley, more Veronica and Ian, and more Sam!

In closing I have to make mention of one of the most touching scenes in the book, remember this book is called Forgiven......Gabby was given the quote below on a picture frame and I have Faith, Hope, Love tattooed on my foot so I absolutely adored this!
"Never lose Faith. Always have Hope. Love for Always." -
