Forgiven Blog Tour {review, excerpt, & giveaway}




 

{about the book}
What happens when one moment changes the course of your entire life? Do you sit back and accept it, or fight to live the life you choose? Caleb Jacobs has a past that has haunted him for two years. Knowing he can never forgive himself for the events that led to his departure, Caleb chooses to live a quiet life—concentrating on school, sports, and shots. But when he is paired with Angie for a history project he realizes that no matter how much you try to hide from your past, one way or another it will find you.

Angelina Powers knows what she wants from life. Growing up with only an alcoholic father for company, Angie learned early on in life that you can only count on yourself. But that doesn’t stop her wishing for her white knight. She’s confident, happy and focused…until she meets Caleb. So how will she feel when her potential white knight turns out to be more of a black shadow?

I looked down into those beautiful brown eyes and once again I was lost. I put my finger under her chin and lifted her face up to mine. My eyes connected with hers at I slowly lowered my lips to hers. I pulled back for a second, “How drunk are you?”
“A little,” she said with a giggle.
I probably shouldn’t have kissed her again, but I couldn’t stop myself. I had to taste her. I pressed my lips to hers. Her lips were so soft, they were incredible. She slipped her hands up my chest, around the back of my neck and into my hair as I continued to kiss her. I could feel the heat from her fingers through my shirt, it made me harder than I already was. I lost it and deepened the kiss. I slid my tongue into her warm mouth tasting every part of her. She tasted amazing as her tongue danced around with mine. I realized I was getting too excited as my hand slid up her ribs toward her breast. Fucking hell, we were in the middle of a frat party and here I was feeling her up. I pulled my mouth away and leaned my forehead against hers as we both caught our breath from the most amazing kiss of my life. “What are you doing to me?” I whispered.

{my thoughts}
What an awesome book! Oh my gracious! I loved Caleb & Angie. Such an amazing couple. I hated for the book to end. I felt like I was right there with them. Rebecca Brooke created characters that you want to know more about. :) The one thing I can console myself with is the fact that this is a series...so I hope to see more of them in future books. Wonderful!!
