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
I am a HUGE Bradley and Gabby fan!! And I mean HUGE. I fell in love with them from day one and feel like their story is so heartwarming even if they do have their hard times. Even with the drama, you still feel that knock you off your feet romance that we all just dream about. Come on….how many men do you know that would give up sex for that long to be with a girl??? And especially after being a player for so long! Yeah, that’s what I thought….not many. So, yes this is a fairy tale romance in my opinion.
Forgiven picks up right where Mending leaves off. Bradley and Gabby are now engaged and everything should be looking up for them but every story has its drama and there is more to come for them. There is still that unknown answer of whose baby Veronica is carrying and also, Gabby still has issues from her past. Can this get in the way of their happily ever after. Thank goodness no, but that doesn’t mean it will be easy. In my opinion, Bradley made some STUPID mistakes. I know he thought he was doing what was best for everyone but REALLY!?! Gabby was so much more forgiving than I would have been. There was one scene(which I will not ruin for you) where I wanted to spout foul and I mean foul language at him. Really, Bradley… you can’t have your cake and eat it too!
As I said above, I have LOVED every book in this series so far but have to be honest and say I felt some things were missing in this one. There were scenes(some highly emotional scenes) where I felt like I needed so much more and I never had that feeling in the previous books 😦 That saddens me. For instance, the end, I am thinking we deserved a little more bang on the wedding night. We all have waited and waited and waited for them to finally be together and I didn’t get that wow effect. We all know Bradley Banks can do better than that 😉
Overall, I still really enjoyed reading about how it all comes together for them and I also hope that there is more to come with Sam. I feel like we were being teased with her story and I am anxiously awaiting all the drama and angst that I think will be connected to her.
