    2. 5+++++ Stars!"Forgiveness isn't an emotion. It's an action, and it's a choice."Achingly wrenching. Painstakingly intense. Hauntingly beautiful.Those are just some words I would use to describe Unforgiven by Elizabeth Finn. Every once in a while I read a book that renders me speechless. This was such a book for me. What this author has written is a book that is very real, passionate, gritty and raw. And, it hurt like a motherfucker! It's a book about forgiveness and moving on from one incident th [...]

    3. 4 STARSI survived.Okay. Nikki and Jan, you can stop hiding now. I can see you. I’m finished. I survived. My Kindle is still in one piece.

So… Thank you, my sweet friends This book is such a difficult and complicated read. I didn’t expect it to be so deep. This is not just an enemies-to-lovers story. It's a heartbreaki [...]

    10. 5 "This story didn't let me sleep" Stars!! Oh my god! Oh my Gawd!! This made me a crying mess.I loved this so much!! So damn much! And I needed something like this so freaking bad.

    11. *3 Stars*Unforgiven started off incredibly well, captivating me instantly. The author did an amazing job building and sustaining a strong degree of intrigue as well as sexual tension. I was thrilled when I realized a book with such a generous serving of steam would also hand over a strong plot--however, the gratuitous sexy times did eventually end up hijacking the story and often left me scrounging for a bit more depth. That said, I still very much enjoyed this read and would highly recommend to [...]

    12. OMG, cue the tears.This story broke my freaking heart! I purchased this book in August 2014 when Chris told me I had to read it. Then last night I was complaining to Anna about being in a book funk.

FULL REVIEW FINALLY POSTED « You will always be my world. »It's a good damn thing I'm reviewing this one after all the emotions I've been through.It's a good way to try to express how I felt through out my read.

    14. 4.5 Powerful Stars! A gut-wrenching, heartbreaking, cruel, hurtful, raw, passionate journey to overcome and accept a painful past, move on, and re-claim what was lost. Elizabeth Finn's intense exhaustive writing has the reader experiencing the emotional turmoil right along with the characters! There is a thin line between love and hate hurt!I won’t go into the story, but I knew in my heart the direction the book was going to take early on, and my pulse was pounding with each turn of the page. [...]

    15. This book is very well written, extremely heartbreaking and it will definitely evoke many, many emotions from a reader. I think it’s impossible for anyone not to be able to connect and sympathize with the main character Bailey Trent. Bailey has been released from prison and returns to her hometown and comes face to face with Dr. Darren Cory. The love that was once between them is now covered and trapped in hateful feelings that would have most people running for the hills. Bailey was a tremend [...]

    16. 3.5 ★'s I was sooo excited to read this book because I love EF and the emotional depth of her books and because I was ready for some tearsFinished~sigh~My Thoughts:♦ This book had potential and it almost went there but it could've been so much more! ♦ When Bailey's "level" was revealed, I was shocked! That made no sense and I kept waiting for some type of reveal that there had been an error. ♦ I really felt the lack of certain scenes court! especially with the going back from now to th [...]

    17. Shall we play fun-with-words? Beautiful. Eloquent. Raw. Emotional. Heartbreaking. Forgiving. This book consumed me from the very first page. It shredded my heart, made me cry, made me smile, restored my faith and put me back together again. Almost a week later, I’m still thinking about Darren and Bailey’s story.I don’t even know how to review this without giving away spoilers, which I don’t want to do. I think you’re better off going into this book without knowing the issues between th [...]

    21. ✮ ✮ ✮ ✮ 5 Learning to Forgive Stars ✮ ✮ ✮ ✮ Unforgiven was such a beautiful story. It pulled at my heart-strings and I found myself crying through a good part of the story. Any time a book can get me so emotionally invested that I develop a migraine from crying so much, then it automatically deserves 5 stars. Regardless of issues you may have, any author that can pull you into a fictional world like that deserves a pat on the back hug! Unforgiven had everything in it that I love [...]

    22. DEAR ME!!!!!!!!!!! This book took me off guard, something I was not expecting! Worse still, I am still hurting!!Bailey and Darren have each other for such a long time and sometimes she feels that he looks at her like another sister.

    24. “You need to understand something. Forgiveness isn’t an emotion. It’s an action, and it’s a choice. It’s the choice to not let the past affect how you feel about her.”What happens when the only person you love is the person you supposed to hate?Life becomes miserable and that's what it was for Darren.When his sister Jess was killed in a car accident almost years ago when driving home drunk with her best friend Bailey, Darren blames himself all these years.Now Bailey is released from [...]

    26. Everyone raved about this one. It was good but not a 5 star for me. Think any book I read after the Consequences series would not meet the criteria.

    27. ALL NIGHT!!!! I STAYED UP ALL NIGHT!!!!! And I have no idea why.This started so well, everything what I loved. And I did love it in the beginning, I was glued to it But later I just wanted to see how long will this be stretched out. Bloody hell This depressing book had no end!!!! And I love depressing, I love the sob fest, I love the redemption, I love the torture, I love it all that this book has But for fu@ks sake This had no end! He was so frustrating with his switches, I wanted to slap his s [...]

    28. FORGIVENESS isn’t an emotion. It’s an action, and it’s a choice.DAMNis book!UNFORGIVEN was such an emotional roller coaster and I loved every minute of it. It's a story about friendship, loss, hate, forgiveness and most of all about LOVE.Bailey and Darren have known each other since childhood. She is his sister's best friend and three years younger than him. One night, when they can't deny their feelings any longer, they share a passionate moment.until something terrible happens that tears [...]

    29. **** 4.5 STARS! ****Unforgiven was probably one of the most emotional books Ive read in a while! I was crying so much I had to stop and breathe. But Elizabeth Finn does that to me. She did it with Brother's Keeper, which remains one of my favourites and left me a bumbling mess. In a good way!She also knows how to write assholes really well. These men she creates often lash out with vicious comments that always leave me heartbroken. But they also do so out of pain and always come back redeeming t [...]

    30. There were many things I liked about this book, but unfortunately, I never came to love Darren and Bailey's heartbreaking story. Both have suffered a tremendous loss, leaving them damaged, broken and in desperate need of forgiveness. Reflecting the emotions of the characters, this book is pervaded by an air of sadness up until near the end. The writing is good and I liked how easily it flowed as the author takes the reader from present to past. Even with all their pain, Darren and Bailey can't s [...]
