Companion novel to "Unbreakable" & "Undone" and is the final book in the Unbreakable series -- This is Lindsay and Matt's story.

Lindsay Christianson seemingly has it all—the perfect career, the perfect boyfriend, and the best-laid plans for a perfect life—until one phone call changes everything.

With a moments notice, Lindsay must choose between her perfect life and her professional dreams. The choice momentarily seems clear when the opportunity to propel her career abruptly sends her across the country, leaving everything she loves behind in North Carolina.

Navigating a new city with a broken heart and a job where her colleagues will do anything to sabotage her success, the pressure quickly becomes too great. When old habits resurface, Lindsay finds herself chasing demons she thought were long since buried.

With pain and destruction left in her wake, will Lindsay find a way to erase the damage she’s done, or will her sins remain unforgiven?

Liezel’s Thoughts:

Lindsay has it all. She has a more than stable career, a family that isn’t perfect but  getting there and of course she has an over the top loving and devoted boyfriend, Matt.  Things however change when she makes a career choice that relocates her to the opposite coast. Career wise, it is everything that she thought she ever  wanted but the moment she made that decision the rest of her life starts crumbling.

Depressed and alone, she tries to cope the best she could. She pours herself into her new job and while that part of her life is flourishing,  her personal life is collapsing around her.The darkness of her past begins to claw its way back into her life and she becomes this unrecognizable person.


“Do you believe people deserve a second chance?”
“I believe there are people who deserve an infinite number of chances.”
“Because some people are worth that. You’re worth that.”


I have to say that this is the one of things that made this book standout for me. It dealt with real life issues.  The heroine is in no means perfect. Time and again she makes the worst and even life threatening decisions but it was the way she handled the aftermath independently that made her character distinctive.

There were moments in the book that I was mildly disappointed that Matt wasn’t there every step of the way but in the end I thought that was what she exactly needed to get to that beautiful ending.

I do have to admit that I  am a little depressed that this is the last book in the Unbreakable Series. Every single one of the books were in their own right were remarkable stunning. The characters in each story were great.I would have to say that Jonah  stood out for me in this story and I am hoping that Rebecca Shea decides to write more about him.

I thought Unforgiven was a great second chance romance. In my opinion, the entire series is a definite must read.


The Verdict:
