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?

I have been a fan of M/M romance for some time, so when I found out Ruth Clampett had written one, I couldn’t wait to read it, and it was definitely worth the wait. Jason and Dean have been best friends for most of their lives. Both now in college pursuing their dream of becoming architects, feelings begin to emerge that threaten to jeopardize their friendship, and secrets from the past could all but destroy one of them. Unforgiven is a wonderfully written story of coming out and finding love, but it’s also much more. Several times the challenges Jason and Dean faced left me with a lump in my throat, and I had to close the book and walk away. Unforgiven is not fast-paced. Rather, it carefully – perhaps even methodically – examines the challenges that discovering ones sexuality can bring, as well as the pain that discovery often reveals both for the discoverer and for those in their lives. Author Ruth Clampett tackles emotional topics that are, at times, difficult to read, and sometimes even more difficult to understand, but she does so in such a way that it makes the journey worth the heartache. Five responsibly, beautifully written stars.
