Unforgiven (Loveless Texas #2) by Jay Crownover


3.5 Stars

Kody Lawton has spent most of her adult life angry at Hill Gamble. But since he is her former fiancé’s brother, and the best friend of her own brother, avoiding him has not always been an easy task. And when Hill arrives back in Loveless bearing bad news, Kody finds herself spending more time with Hill than she ever has… which is a big problem… especially if she wants to continue to hide the overwhelming attraction she has for him…


Unforgiven is a complicated love story about an unrequited infatuation that has been simmering since Kody and Hill were young and inexperienced in life. With her animosity concealing her true feelings, Kody has successfully kept Hill from being a bigger part of her life since the mistakes of their youth. But with a murderer at large and her father’s unsolved death in the balance, if they want to get to the bottom of the case, these two will have to learn to keep the peace… and their hands to themselves…

After the loss of her fiancé, Kody shifted the blame to his brother Hill for abandoning her and his brother when they needed him most. But underneath all of her blame, Kody hides the fact that she always had a soft spot for Hill, even when she was engaged to his younger brother. After successfully avoiding him in the years since their loss, this time when Hill arrives back in town, Kody finds that staying away from him isn’t quite as easy as it used to be.

Once Hill escaped from the drudgery of life in Loveless, he vowed to move on and never look back. But in doing so, he lost two of the most important people in his life. Kody Lawton was the woman he always wanted, but could never have, and he made the decision to keep his distance, which seemed like the best solution for everyone involved. But when the Lawton family needs him, the Texas Ranger returns to the last place he ever wanted to be, and right into the arms of the woman who means everything to him…

This was a really good read! Kody and Hill’s story was an emotional and sexy second chance romance, which seemed like it had no chance of progressing past the hurts of their past. But in dealing with the complicated reality of their forever unspoken feelings, the love that Kody and Hill have been harboring may finally find a way to break free.

I have really enjoyed the Loveless Texas series and its complex characters that have made it so enriching. Blacklisted is the next book in the series, and if what the next couple has encountered so far in Unforgiven is any indication, they are in for one wild ride…

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
