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.

Wow! Incredibly fast paced read with a lot of action, mystery and drama following the Lawton's in Loveless, TX. This is a stand alone with it's own HEA, but part of a series that still has a loose end or canon or two, and I can't wait to find out what. Kody and Hill finally get their time together. So good, so sweet, so overdue and so Hot! Too bad he still gets called out of town too much. I have a feeling this will change in the near future. All the surprises that come out surrounding the Lawton patriarch will definitely keep your interest, and flipping pages waiting for more. The Sons of Sorrow, P. comes into play in a totally unexpected twist making me wish Shot's book was already released. An excellent read that pulls you in! I received an ARC thru Netgalley and Forever. I am giving my opinions freely.
Omg another amazing read from Jay that had me reading non-stop. I knew Kody and Hill’s story was going too be good but holy hell, between the mystery of why the events happened in the story and the ending I need the next book SOON. Kody and Hill are a couple that you want forget and you will definitely want more of. Brilliant story with of course amazing characters that everyone must read.
Another great book in this series! It was a great fast paced read. You get a great love story and suspense and action! You do get closure on Hill and Kody’s story but you will definitely want to read Shot’s book. Which I am so excited to read!!
4.5 stars This was just what I hoped for...romantic and angsty and action packed. I loved Jody and Hill. Kody was sassy and a little hot headed but she loved her family, while Hill was so protective of Kody and willing to put others first. My only complaint is that [ there wasn't a resolution with finding Conrad's killer and Ashby is still at large (hide spoiler)] I will be chomping at the bit to get the next book because I was
Unforgiven is another great read set in the town of Loveless, Texas. This book is full of intrigue, action, suspense and danger. The suspenseful storyline and the wonderful characters pull you in and keep your attention until the end. Kody and Hill were both wonderful, flawed characters. They were two halfs of a wonderful whole couple. I can't wait to read the next book.
4 1/2 stars. I really enjoyed this story and after having met these characters in the previous book I was so happy to finally get all the details on Kody and Hill and their unrequited love history. Luckily it does not stay unrequited, not really a spoiler alert or there would be no story. I guess this could be considered a second chance in a way at least for Kody, but for Hill, she is all he has ever wanted. I really like their characters and the journey to get to where they are at the end of the book. The story itself is amazingly written by the fabulous Jay Crownover. That ending though. Looking forward to Shot's book up next!!
Oh I just love Jay Crownover and this story is no exception. Heart breaking back story for Kody and Gamble. Now I'm DYING to for SHOT.
Goodness gracious what an absolutely awesome book. I enjoyed seeing Kody and Hill come to terms with things from the past. I love all the mystery and suspense, this book will definitely keep you on your toes and anxiously turning the pages to see what comes next. Can't wait for more!!
I loved this story! Incredible book. In her acknowledgements Jay said, “In romance there are few things I love more than the longing and ache associated with unrequited love. It is hands down one of my most favorite tropes.” Same here Jay, SAME. And you nailed it. I was invested in Hill and Kody’s story from page one. Hill quickly went up the ranks on my list of favorite book boyfriends and Kody was a force. Make sure you add this book to your TBR list! Do. Not. Miss. This. Book.
Must read series!! I adored the first installment in Jay Crownover’s Loveless, Texas series (Justified) so I jumped at the chance to read the follow-up book Unforgiven! In all honesty, it took me only about 5 pages to be completely hooked -from that point I strapped on my seatbelt because I knew Jay Crownover was about to take me on one heck of a ride! Unforgiven is a swoon-worthy romance that’s packed with depth! The characters are realistic at the same time endearing and that combine with the great storyline makes this novel a complete 5 star read! Of course, I now am excitedly awaiting the next installment in this fantastic series!
