***Forgiven by JB McGee Blog Tour Stop and Giveaway***

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

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

Jenn's Review:
Going to the chapel and we’re going to get married… You’re singing this aren’t you? Bradley and Gabby could not be happier. The ring is on her finger and everything is going to plan, right? WRONG!!

Forgiven is packed with so many emotional hurdles! As a couple, Bradley and Gabby go through so much in this book that sometimes I got a little nervous wondering where JB was taking me. When I can laugh, cry and swoon in one book, I know it’s a great one!

From the beginning, I could feel their excitement. Newly engaged and talking about moving in together. Gabby still has a lot on her plate though. She is transferring schools and needing to get packed up to move. But she’s ready for them to get their lives together started. And, she’s ready in other ways as well. However, they both have decided they will wait until after the wedding to make love for the first time. It is a promise she made to her mom and she is going to keep it. Bradley is very supportive of her decision and it made me love him even more.

The story is only just beginning. When Gabby finds out something that Bradley kept from her, she falls apart. Bradley doesn’t know what to do. Sam, Gabby's sister, is angry at Bradley; all he had to do was keep his mouth shut. So with Gabby dealing with her past, and Bradley having to deal with Veronica and possibly his future, tensions run high and feelings are hurt.

 “Because Bradley, when I needed you, you were with her. You chose her.”

There were so many times while reading that I was so nervous, I felt like I had cotton in my mouth! My stomach was in knots and I couldn’t stop reading, I had to know what was going to happen with everyone! JB has given us a story that is not the norm. Yes, it is a beautiful love story and I loved the fact that Gabby was not going to be swayed from her principles, no matter how badly she wanted to! I laughed, cried and swooned and I loved every minute of ‘This’ great story!
