When I saw the teaser for this come across my blog, I was like "YES! I need this!" and somehow convinced my bestie, Ang from PNR Book Lover Reviews to buddy read with me (she will be thinking twice next time lol).
Dual POV normally aren't my fav, it's so easy to get lost and forget whose head you are in if it's not written well. This was not an issue, Ruth's writing style is incredible. You feel every little (or big) emotion these men go through.
Jason (JJ) and Dean have been best friends pretty much forever, only Jason's feelings have always been more than just friendship, he has been secretly in love with Dean all along.
Ashamed and damaged from things from his past that has truly messed with his head and his attraction to men, Jason tries hiding his true self and his true desires by acting like the biggest playboy going around. That's until one night at a party Dean walks in on him and Roman (aka douchebag.)
Dean is straight, like an arrow straight and assumed Jason is just as straight as he is. Walking in on a guy giving JJ head leaves Dean confused, jealous, angry and more worrying to himself, turned on.
While these two explore their new found feelings, and boy does their exploring get hot enough to melt your kindle and leave you heading for a cold shower, they also tackle some really hard subjects and obstacles. This story takes on a Very angsty, bumpy and brutally heartbreaking real and raw road that will leave you crying, from both gut-wrenching sadness to over the moon happiness, cursing, falling in love to growling at your kindle, and that rollercoaster of feels is totally on repeat.
Without giving too much away, this story will take you on a journey that you won't be forgetting in a hurry. Jason and Dean are both strong, courageous, real characters that show you, no, makes you feel that Love is Love is Love and love will always have your back.
Now on the verge of college graduation, Jason longs to reveal his true self and the painful secret that has haunted him for so long. He refuses to think of what his life would be like if Dean wasn’t in it and resigns himself to the fact that they will never be anything more. But what if there is a chance that they could be?
Dean Whitley is the All-American boy. He’s known around campus as a player on and off the field. His friendship with Jason has always been his one constant but lately there seems to be a storm brewing just under the surface.
Finding Jason in a more than compromising position with another guy has made him question everything – even himself. Giving in to his desire for Jason is easy but where they go from there is nothing but complicated.
Can they turn one night into forever or will Jason’s shame set him on a path of self-destruction that not even Dean can save him from?
In Unforgiven, Ruth delivers a one-of-a-kind love story that is as stunning as it is starkly real. Jason and Dean’s journey is one of self-discovery, acceptance and faith - in love and finally in each other.
You will feel rage and you may even shed some tears. But in the end, you will believe that love does indeed triumph over hate. And that is something that the world can use so much more of…
Ruth Clampett did a great job with her first story in this genre.
Jason and Dean, longtime best friends, both with a curiosity about each other.
Once they give into that curiosity, it gets STEAMY, and you can really feel the chemistry between the two men.
I did enjoy this book, and the story kept me engrossed throughout it's entirety.
What kept it from being a 5 Star? Dean's character in the beginning.
Some of his dialogue towards Jason, or inner thoughts bothered me a bit.
But, the second half of the book was written beautifully, and it was a solid 4 Stars!
I'm so glad to see new authors taking the leap into writing M/M, it's bringing so many new readers to a great genre!
****SLIGHT SPOILERS BELOW that could be
TRIGGERS for some readers****
Heads up for fans of M/M books, this did include some M/F sex scenes.
I know many long time readers of M/M stories don't usually care for this.
For me personally, I do not mind them, as long as it helps the story move forward.
The M/F scenes in this one seemed to move Jason and Dean closer to realizing that they were truly craving each other.
There is also some triggers throughout the story. Sexual Abuse by a Priest, Depression, Self Harm.
At times heartbreaking to read, but adds so much to this beautiful story.
I have not read any of this authors books before but I am currently in a M/M genre of reading so when I saw the preview of this book on Facebook I knew I wanted to read it.
Once I started it there was nothing else that was going to happen til I finished it. This story has so many ups and downs and then back up I was not completely sure what would happen. Imagine realizing you have fallen in love with your childhood best friend, who is currently your room mate and the one you have planned your future with only to know he is not gay.
Jason and Dean go through so much before they get together and then after they get together the hits keep coming. Imagine jealousy, drugs and sex club, a Priest molester, a horrific parent, and a criminal case not to mention way too many misunderstandings. On the bright side there is a brother, and parents and best friend who is there to listen and help the duo along there way.
I must read no matter what style of books you are into as long as you want a love story!
