Thank you to Jay Crownover, Forever, and InkSlinger PR for the advance reader copy of Unforgiven, the second standalone in the Loveless, Texas series.
Check out the Goodreads synopsis below…
“From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men series comes an irresistible and suspenseful romance between a tough Texas Ranger and his first love–a woman in danger who insists she doesn’t need his protection.
Hill Gamble is a model lawman: cool and collected, with a confident swagger to boot. Too bad all that Texas charm hasn’t gotten him anywhere in his personal life, especially since the only girl he ever loved has always been off-limits. But then Hill is assigned to investigate her father’s mysterious death, and he’s forced back to the town–and the woman–he left behind.
When Hill left Loveless, he broke Kody Lawton’s already battered heart. And now that he’s working on her father’s case, avoiding him is impossible. She can handle Hill and her unwanted feelings–until he puts his life on the line to protect her. Suddenly, Kody realizes that Hill could be taken away from her…for good.”
Check out my more detailed thoughts below…
- Characters: Kody and Hill are the main characters. Kody is the type of woman I would never recommend messing with. In the face of all the trauma, she has faced in the previous books it was wonderful to finally be in her head and to see the world how he sees it. Hill is that big softie, he has the type of career and type of background that requires a hard exterior. Throughout his point of view, we see moments of his dynamic multi-dimensional character.
- Setting: Loveless, Texas is the small-town setting of Jay’s latest series. The town lends itself as a character of the story, as gossip and rumours fly through the town quickly it adds drama to the story.
- Romance: Kody and Hill’s background is something I do not want to spoil, you have to go read it for yourself. Their history made it so much more worth it when they finally admitted to their feelings. These two are the type of people who are so reluctant to allow someone else to care of them, so watching them give in and let it happen was so amazing.
Unforgiven receives four out of five stars.
