Publisher's Summary

Would you live a lie to hold onto the one you love?

Dean and Jason are best friends, like brothers since boyhood, now architecture students and college roommates. They've always had each other's back, but when one walks in on the other with another man, everything changes. How do you explain to your best friend that he's the one you've always wanted, that until now your life has been a lie?

Desperation and shame are two dirty words that run through Jason's veins. He carries the scars from a wayward priest who stole his innocence and left him shattered. Meanwhile for years he's watched Dean pursuing woman after woman, as his own heart slowly breaks.

When their world blows apart, they learn the powerful bond between them has more fire than either understood. Can two broken souls find the light in their darkness and come together to make a whole, or will sins of the past be forever unforgiven?

    "Great book! 💘"

    this book was so good. Jason is a gay man who is in love with his childhood friend Dean but he feels wrong for loving him because at an early age he was molested by his priest who told him he was sinful for the feelings he felt for boys, so he plays straight for a while. Dean who is straight doesn't know what his friend went through but he catches him one day with a man, and that just sets him on a confusing emotional roller coaster of jealousy and. curiosity about his own sexuality.
    Dean can come across as a butt hole a lot in this book but then in the same breath he redeems himself by being the rock in Jason's life that he desperately needs. Jason is of course a broken man, so he has lots of weak, vulnerable times in the book.
    I loved the book I could have listened to another 10hrs. I hope there's a book 2 just so I can revisit these characters, I like how Dean tries in vain to resist Jason, and how his love grows so deep for Jason. this book is worth the credit/money, and reread.

    "What a ride!"

    Wow! What a book. Jason and dean have been friends since they were little. There relationship turns romantic, and hold on because it is a ride. There were happy moments, sad moments, and down right hot 🔥🔥moments. I couldn't put the book down! As for the narrators they nailed it! They both did a awesome job!! I can't wait to read more by this author !!!!

    "So much better than I had hoped for"
    What did you love best about Unforgiven?

    This book was so much more than I had bargained for. I picked it up because it had good ratings and the description sounded intriguing, and after a few chapters I had already decided to give it a 5* rating because it had delivered so esquisitely on the HOTNESS level. I am a sucker for jealousy (the healthy kind), and it was so delicious. But then it turned into so much more than a story about 2 hot guys. They come across like real people, with so much baggage to work through, and you can't help but root for them and forgive them even when they make stupid decisions. This book will break your heart and then put it back together in a better way. Definitely reread worthy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I nearly have. I couldn't put if off after I started, I was too immersed in the lives of the characters and rooting for them with all my heart.

    "Bff to lovers"

    I was not a fan of Dean in the beginning. He could never really seem to see Jason even though they were almost inseparable. But he too comes around and becomes a better friend to Jason. I loved the ending. The narration was super great. I will always be the biggest fan of Iggy Toma. I melt when he speaks!!!

    "GRRRR!!!! But - It's a Keeper!"

    I was ready to kill Dean for over a Third of this book! But I also realized this is probably a realistic reaction for some people. Dean and Jason are an interesting and complicated dynamic. They were both really good people. I really liked Jason. It saddens me how people believe whatever the church says without any investigation or self-examination. How a parent could reject their child is beyond me. This was well worth listening to and I will listen to it again! Both narrators were good, pacing was pretty good. I am going to check into more of Ruth's writing!

    "intense, sexy and at times downright scary!"

    i would absolutely recommend this book to anyone that likes romance novels with substance. it reminded me of Felice Stevens "Through Hell and Back Series" which you will like if you enjoyed Unforgiven and vice versa. Chapter 50 was a nail biter and it nearly overwhelmed me emotionally.

    "Great Story and Narrators!"
    Where does Unforgiven rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 5


    What other book might you compare Unforgiven to and why?

    Unsure, this book tackles the psychological wreckage that past sexual abuse can inflict. It also shows the evolution of a friends to lovers and the healing power of love.


    What does Eric London and Iggy Toma bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They convey more emotion than can be expressed on the written page.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "Weak and lame"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No. I do not like drug use and codependent relationships. Jason needs help and bring in a relationship with a person who does not know who he is just adds to his mental issues. If I were Dean I would feel extremely trapped.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ruth Clampett again?

    Not if she continues to write about weak subjects with no substance. Having only a physical connection is not enough.


    What does Eric London and Iggy Toma bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They were the best part of the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nothing. I was pissed the majority of the book. The sexual abuse and self loathing was too much. I feel the book had too much stuff.


    Any additional comments?

    If it was about a strong love over coming obstacles in the past I would have enjoyed it more. Dean is the dumb jock who I could not like no matter how much I tried and Jason was a needy, winey and mentally and emotionally abused man who should have gotten help before getting into a relationship with and immature man.

    "kinda dissapointed"

    First of: Im not that big of a fan of audibooks with 2 narrators and I blught this one course of Iggy Toma. Sadly this book was moostly read from Deans prespective so I didnt get as much Iggy I had hoped. Not that Eric London didnt do a good job, actually suprised me. I just dont like when you get used to one persons narration and someone els do the voices different.

    Now for the book... Im not one to complain about a little agnst here and there, but in this its so maxed out of agnst and missunderstandings that I found myself getting a little angry when I listened. And Dean didnt make things better with what an asshole he was to Jason when he found out he was gay. He made it out that now his life was so out of order he didnt know what to do with himself, so he go all out on being an idiot!
    It was still an interesting story, just wish it had been better. Also I was hoping for a complete m/m romance but there are some m/f that Dean insist is ok, but once Jason hook up Dean explode. =__= Sigh!
