Unforgiven, an all-new sexy and emotional M/M love story from Ruth Clampett available now!!
4.5 Stars
Would you live a lie to hold onto the one you love?

Dean and Jason are best friends, like brothers since boyhood, now architecture students and college roommates. They’ve always had each other’s back, but when one walks in on the other with another man, everything changes. How do you explain to your best friend that he’s the one you’ve always wanted, that until now your life has been a lie?

Desperation and shame are two dirty words that run through Jason’s veins. He carries the scars from a wayward priest who stole his innocence and left him shattered. Meanwhile for years he’s watched Dean pursuing woman after woman, as his own heart slowly breaks.

When their world blows apart, they learn the powerful bond between them has more fire than either understood. Can two broken souls find the light in their darkness and come together to make a whole, or will sins of the past be forever unforgiven?

This standalone is a M/M love story with graphic sex. Trigger warning.

Jason and Dean have been best friends since they were little boys growing up on the same street in Boise, Idaho.
Now they're in their last year of college - they want to run their own architect firm afterwards.
But suddenly everything is different.

What do you do when your best friend - who you always thought was the biggest ladies man ever - turns out to be gay? And not only that...he's kind of in lust/love with you?
And you're straight.
But suddenly all those erotic moments where you spied on your best friend fooling around with the hot quarterback are turning you on like nothing ever has???

What do you do???
Give being gay or bi a chance?
Or risk losing your best friend forever????

And what if I'm falling in love with him too?
What then?

What if you suddenly don't have to keep being gay a secret from your best friend/room mate who you've been in love with forever?
What if he's suddenly interested in experimenting? Will all that leave you horribly hurt in the end because he's just not that gay??
And what about your stupid PTSD from what happened when you were a teenager?
How will you ever live a happy life with the man of your dreams???

What will happen with those two??
Will we get a happily ever after??

Phew, that was hot!
What is it with us girls and man-on-man erotica??? Weird. ☺
But I looove it!

This book was seriously HOT! Other books start out slowly and mayyyybe towards the middle we get to see some naked skin. But here - we get lots of male parts in the beginning already!!!!
It's all more of a peeping-tom thing at first, but soon Dean is kind of getting with the gay thing! ☺
But of course both boys are still so very confused and scared .... but also verrry horny!

I really enjoyed this book!
Lots of sexy times. Lots of verrry serious times too.
This book really has everything a great EROTICA DRAMANCE needs!

Sometimes you want to hit Dean over the head for his slightly homophobic tendencies - or rather for the way he so carelessly goes about things with JJ. It seems like he's not really thinking about Jason's feelings at all! That poor boy has been in love with him forever and Dean just wants to experiment for a while - have some fun! Grrr.
And poor Jason, with all he's been through, it's totally understandable, but he could've stood up for himself a bit more here and there...

And then we have this typical romance book thing that happens in almost every book towards the end. It's either a lie, a misunderstanding, but mostly it's just a TALK THE EFF TO EACH OTHER thing. All this unnecessary drama wouldn't happen if people would just talk and confront each other! And I don't know why authors don't try to be a tiny bit more creative when it comes to that part of a story. BUT I still loved it - it got cleared up pretty fast in this case! ☺

I was also a bit unsure about the writing. This is my first RC book and I had the feeling that the sentences were somehow cut off. No....cut off is not really what I mean....rather like when you would read a list of things...bam bam bam. But, don't worry, it's probably just me. I still loved the book!

It was an amazing erotic dramance that doesn't just make the reader really hot and horny - it also makes you think and hate and love and ... just read it please!

UNFORGIVEN was a very erotic & lovely & moving romance about two boys fighting for their place in life & love! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Dean & Jason - these two are MINE!!!

another thing that bothers me - not about the book - but about things in the book - and you might stop reading if you don't want to know about what happened to Jason when he was a kid - although it's already mentioned in the blurb, so it might not spoil at all!
Can we just now declare to wipe out all and any religion from this planet?
All those sick fucks hiding behind their religious shit!!! In this book it's the priest but also Jason's mom. I just can't understand how such people can still exist in this time and age!
Without religion this planet would be so much more peaceful and happy and sane!
Rant over!



“What started all of this tonight? First I walk in on you having sex with yourself … then you grill me about having sex with Ramon … and then you suggest we have sex.” He rakes his fingers through his hair. “You’re making me crazy, dude. How much did you drink anyway?”
“Enough to loosen up and let my mind go places it normally doesn’t.”
His eyes light up. “I’ll say.”
“Hey, I’m really curious now. Will you let me fuck you? I promise I’ll follow what you want and take it slow.”
“Oh Jesus. Are you serious? So more experimenting, huh?”
“I think it’ll help me understand more about you.”
“You know when I said I needed more, this isn’t exactly what I meant. Don’t get me wrong, the idea of you fucking me is making me hard as hell, but it’ll just complicate things even more.”
“It doesn’t have to complicate things. Is it really so crazy to just want to make each other feel good?” I pause for a moment. “Come on, JJ.”
Lifting myself off the bed, I slowly approach him. As I get closer, I press my naked body into him so he’s up against the doorjamb, then I boldly rub my palm over his hard cock that’s trapped in his pajama bottoms.
I take a sharp breath because I’m shocked I’m even suggesting fucking my best friend. This is crazy, but feeling myself against him and imagining him naked under me is turning me on like a rocket with a sparking fuse.
He stands frozen, every part of him perfectly still, and then he gasps for air. “Please, Dean, please tell me you aren’t toying with me.”
I press my face into his neck. “I’m not toying with you, man. I don’t know what’s happening to me, but I have all these confusing feelings and my curiosity is through the roof. I’ve been so damn restless lately, and suddenly I have a feeling that if I turn a corner, I might find myself right where I need to be.”
Jason slides his arm along my lower back and curves his fingers around my side, then pulls me closer. “Don’t make me hope for something, and then crush me. I wouldn’t be able to take it. Our friendship means everything to me. It’s why I’m still standing and fighting for a future, when for a long time I wasn’t sure if I deserved one.”
I pull my head back so we can be face to face. It guts me to see so much pain in his eyes. Why the hell didn’t I see all of this before? He’s my best friend, dammit. I should have known he was hurting.
He shakes his head. “I can’t lose you, Dean. I can’t. Tread carefully, man.” His eyes are glazed like he’s fighting back tears.
I take his hand and guide him into my room. “You aren’t going to lose me. Maybe this whole thing of me learning your secrets happened to bring us closer.”
“I want that,” he whispers, and then more softly he murmurs, “I want you.”
