*Spotlight & Review* Forgiven by Vicki Green
Synopsis'You can't always protect the one you love
But you can forgive them'
Bo Dunway’s young life has been fortunate. His parents being wealthy and providing him and his sister a loving environment growing up, he’s never wanted for much but he has a heart of gold. With his good grades and basketball scholarship he’s able to attend a prominent college, but he doesn't want to live out of state. He can’t bear the thought of leaving behind the one thing he loves more than basketball. Stormy Reece.
Stormy Reece grew up in the most unusual conditions. Meeting Bo and his family was the best thing that ever happened to her. They met when he was seven, and she was five behind the Mexican Restaurant he and his family frequented. Her single mother worked there most day and nights so Stormy was always there hanging out in the kitchen or the back alley. Without a father figure in her life, she rebelled in her late teens, going to party’s with the friends she had made that were horrible influences, staying out till all hours of the night and worrying her mother sick.
Bo and Stormy became inseparable until he reluctantly left for college. He promised he’d never leave her. She believed him. Never again will she trust anyone but herself. He knew from the moment he saw her that he was going to marry her one day. Being forced to attend a college away from his home town, his promising career hangs in the balance as his concentration is only on one thing. Stormy.
Will Bo follow his dreams or his heart and will they ever be able to live out their dream of being together?

“You have to say that because you love me.” She stares into my eyes, our reflection in the mirror showing how well we look together, and her eyebrows suddenly crease, her eyes gleaming with a questioning look. “Why do you love me so much, Bo? I’m nothing but trouble.”
My heart once again breaks for this girl I love. “Because. Deep down, you have a heart of gold. You are the sweetest person I know, beautiful inside and out and because I fell in love with you when you were an innocent girl, one who knew no wrong in the world, one that captured my heart, not ever letting go.” She turns in my arms, her mouth pressing against mine in an instant and right then, right now, the girl I love is in my arms, the one that stole my heart so long ago. Our mouths move together when she finally breaks free, and I lean my forehead against hers. “Come. Let’s go say goodbye to your wonderful mom and begin your life again. Your mom will be so proud of you. Start over fresh, start over with your new family for support. Let me love you and protect you. I’ve given my heart to you.”

Book #1 In The Touched Series
Stormy hasn't has the easiest life. She was told what to do and when to do it. She always had Bo though. Getting away from her crappy life, she finds the one who has loved her unconditionally, Bo Dunway.
Bo has always loved Stormy. Even though she left his life for a year, she was and always will be the one for him.
This book.. dammit. This book was AMAZING. The way Bo loves Stormy is what some girls can only dream about. He didn't care about her past or what it entailed, all he wanted was her. The strength as their relationship built, was beautiful. Never once did they doubt their love for one another.
I laughed, I cried, I swooned and I got pissed! My emotions were all over the place, but only because Vicki makes you feel as if you are in the book! I would say I'm surprised, but I'm not. Vicki's talent knows no boundaries. Every single book gets better and better!! There's no way in hell you cannot enjoy this book, hell ANY of her books! After her first book, I no longer even attempt to read what it's about. My reaction is, "Vicki put out another book? Hell yeah!" She did a phenomenal job yet again! If you haven't read this yet, I suggest you get your butts moving and one click right now! You will not be disappointed!!
