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 received this book as an ARC for an honest review)

Forgiven is story about two broken souls coming together. Not without heartbreak and struggles first, of course. Rebecca Brooke did a great job portraying the pain in each character.

Angie never didn’t have a great childhood. Her mother left her and her father when she was little, her father took to drinking and verbally abusing Angie. Keeping her private life hidden she sets off to college where she meets her best friend, Emily.

Caleb was living the dream, high school football player, scholarships to all ivy league colleges, love of his life in his arms, things couldn’t be better. Until, a horrific accident changes everything.

When Angie and Caleb are paired together in class, Caleb instantly pushes her away. Doing everything possible to not allow her into his life. However, Angie can’t afford to fail this class and pushing Caleb right back into helping her.

As the story progresses, so does their relationship. Neither wanting to share their past,  both keeping each other at arm’s length. While it took me a little while to get into the story, there are quite a few twists in the plot and Rebecca Brooke had me hooked after about ½ way through!

Forgiven has the perfect ending for Angie and Caleb’s story! Getting past the pain, sharing their stories, and believing that they can truly forgiven themselves and others who have hurt them, they are able to happily move on with their lives.

I saw the uncomfortable look on his face—at least he had the decency to feel embarrassed about his behavior. He leaned forward on his elbows, resting his chin in his palms. “Look.” His loud exhale made it seem like he was about to impart something profound, but something that he really didn’t want to share. “I don’t mean to be an ass. There are just things about me people don’t know.” He closed his eyes and I could see his breath become shallow as his chest moved up and down rapidly. “There are…things. Things that have happened. You remind me of someone, and it took me by surprise.” His eyes raised to meet mine. “I am sorry though. You didn’t deserve that,” he said sadly.
