Forgiven — Vicki Green

Synopsis

‘You can’t always protect the one you love
But you can forgive them’

Bo Dunway’s young life has been fortunate. His parents being wealthy and providing him and his sister a loving environment growing up, he’s never wanted for much but he has a heart of gold. With his good grades and basketball scholarship he’s able to attend a prominent college, but he doesn’t want to live out of state. He can’t bear the thought of leaving behind the one thing he loves more than basketball. Stormy Reece.

Stormy Reece grew up in the most unusual conditions. Meeting Bo and his family was the best thing that ever happened to her. They met when he was seven, and she was five behind the Mexican Restaurant he and his family frequented. Her single mother worked there most day and nights so Stormy was always there hanging out in the kitchen or the back alley. Without a father figure in her life, she rebelled in her late teens, going to party’s with the friends she had made that were horrible influences, staying out till all hours of the night and worrying her mother sick.

Bo and Stormy became inseparable until he reluctantly left for college. He promised he’d never leave her. She believed him. Never again will she trust anyone but herself. He knew from the moment he saw her that he was going to marry her one day. Being forced to attend a college away from his home town, his promising career hangs in the balance as his concentration is only on one thing. Stormy.

Will Bo follow his dreams or his heart and will they ever be able to live out their dream of being together?

Excerpt
“You have to say that because you love me.” She stares into my eyes, our reflection in the mirror showing how well we look together, and her eyebrows suddenly crease, her eyes gleaming with a questioning look. “Why do you love me so much, Bo? I’m nothing but trouble.”
My heart once again breaks for this girl I love. “Because. Deep down, you have a heart of gold. You are the sweetest person I know, beautiful inside and out and because I fell in love with you when you were an innocent girl, one who knew no wrong in the world, one that captured my heart, not ever letting go.” She turns in my arms, her mouth pressing against mine in an instant and right then, right now, the girl I love is in my arms, the one that stole my heart so long ago. Our mouths move together when she finally breaks free, and I lean my forehead against hers. “Come. Let’s go say goodbye to your wonderful mom and begin your life again. Your mom will be so proud of you. Start over fresh, start over with your new family for support. Let me love you and protect you. I’ve given my heart to you.”

Forgiven review

Stormy Reece grew up with just her mother and spent most of her childhood days
hanging out behind the restaurant where her mother worked. That’s where she met
Bo Dunway. They became great childhood friends and became inseparable until Bo
went off for college. Stormy rebelled early in life and went down the wrong
path. Now she can’t seem to leave her past in the past. Her former life
continues to follow her. This strains her hopes for a future with the people
that love her.

Bo Dunway has always loved Stormy. Even when he went off to college she was on
his mind. He comes back when situations change. Will Stormy’s past change the
way he feels for her? Will everything just be too much for him to handle?

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars

First of all, I just want to say that I love seeing Jade and Knox as the parents
in this book. They’re older now, and I like to see how understanding they are of
Stormy. As the reader, I know that Jade can relate pretty well to Stormy and her
situation.
Then you have to love Stormy even with all her problems. Why not? Bo seems to.
Bo. Wow, I can just picture the offspring off the Jade and Knox combo. He has to
be super hot. Right? Bo is who kept me into this story. I just had to see how
much he would put up with and what he would go through. I was pretty certain he
would just look at Stormy and walk away early on in the story. She’s definitely
a mess. So, Bo got that 4th star for this book from me.

There were a few things that I would change or question in this story. First, I
was confused how Stormy and Bo were so close but he didn’t know about what she
was doing during her ALL her teenage years. Maybe he was blinded by his love for
her? The next thing is about the hospital. How many times can these people end
up in the hospital in one book? Wow, that doctor better get a great retainer
fee. I was over it by the third trip. Then, there’s Pearl. I just want to know
more about her since she was the first kid and was actually mentioned in the
first book. Perhaps the next book is about her? I’m hoping. I guess since this
is Bo and Stormy’s story I shouldn’t expect more of Pearl than I got.

All in all this was a good book. Bo definitely kept me interested. I’m ready for
a third book!
