Forgiven by J.B. McGee Blog Tour


{about the book}
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

{my thoughts}
Before I signed up for this blog tour I had not read J.B. McGee but now that I have OMGOSH! How did I not know about her? I absolutely LOVED the This series. Since I was not familiar with this series I was given all the books to read - Broken, Mending, Conspiring, and Forgiven - to allow me to read the back story. Holy cow. It's hard for me to find the words. It's amazing because from book 1 Broken you are not only told the story of present day but you go back in the past to find out why the characters are the way they are. You will be rooting for Gabby and Bradley from the start...at times I wanted to smack Gabby and scream at her to get it together. But at the same time you know why she is so screwed up. These books were beyond amazing. I hope that you all will take the time to run over to Amazon and get your own copies. Right now Amazon has a bundle sale for only $5.99, a savings of $4. Get it now!!
