    Reviewed for Sinfully. 3.5 stars In a story that could have been full of angst, this is more a book about accepting yourself and having the strength to do what you need to live the life that is best for you. When Titus, who has grown up as the heir to the Prophet (his grandfat...

    In case you don't know, I am a HUGE fan of J.R. Gray. I've loved every book he's written and Forsaken is no different. This book drew me in from the first page and kept me completely immersed until the last page...and then I was left wanting more. I believe one sign of a great book is ...

    Angel Rodriguez was running from heartbreak when he was left for dead in the middle of the vast Wyoming landscape. And if by a miracle, he's somehow rescued by a man who is trying desperately to flee from some pain of his own. Titus was born and raised in a religious cult that held ...

    What to say ? What to say ? What to say ?. Hmmmmmmmm Okay, so one thing I can say for certain is that the story was beautiful and really well thought out. This story could have gone down a dark rabbit hole of religion and clouded the journey of Titus and Angel to HEA but it di...

    It has been a long time since I have struggled to write a review for a book. This is the third book by Gray that I have had the opportunity to read. Talk about an emotional, gut-wrenching read in my honest opinion. Part of me felt as if bits and pieces of this story were about the auth...

    In J.R. Gary's latest book we are introduced to polar opposite's who magnetic attraction can not be denied. Angel comes from a world of acceptance where Titus is bound to a world of strict rules and absolute devotion and blind obedience. J.R. has done an amazing job writing a story tha...

    4 Stars The first thing that grabbed my attention about this book was the gorgeous cover, it's breathtaking in its simplicity. Then the blurb, which is direct and to the point. I've read other books with a similar theme and I really enjoyed this one. Titus lives in a compound an...

    I started this with hope but I guess I just wasn't in the right mental space for it but I did appreciate the effort put into depicting the life of someone like Titus who grew up in a very sheltered religious community. As someone who's raised by Muslims, I was sad and hurt for him. My ...

    I did not give this a star rating as I?m not sure where I stand on this book. I?m a bit torn and confused and I didn?t want to be unfair to the author. I have read several books by the author and I AM a fan of his however as I was writing my review it seemed less than positive. ...

    I really feel a bunch of turmoil at the end of this book. This story just stirred up a whole lot of emotions in me with everything Titus goes through. His sheltered upbringing and way his identity is suppressed just about killed me. I loved how when he met Angel...his ?angel? prett...

    Throwing the towel at @47% What to say about this? Could a person, nowadays, have a life sheltered to this extent? Secluded from the rest of the world? I don't really know. Either way, the MC's naivety didn't work for me. It's surreal. ...

    Another great book by J. R. Gray. What can I say? I'm sitting here minus a couple of finger nails, which I NEVER chew because of this brilliant story. Titus and Angel are really great characters and their predicament had me on the edge of my seat. I literally couldn't put it down. I wa...

    I found it interesting and sad. The ending was surely abrupt. Around the middle of the book I was not that into it, I expected them to take it slower, to figure things out. It felt rushed. Most importantly (view spoiler)[ what happened with Paul? We have no idea. -_- And how did ...

    The story line intrigued me but after reading a few stories by gay authors who actual were raised in deeply religious environments and the literal hell they had to go through before they were able to escape, this one fell flat for me. There was too much indecision, too much naivety, to...

    A Joyfully Jay review. 3.75 stars In the Author?s Note at the beginning of Forsaken, author J.R. Gray shares a little about his own experiences growing up in a cult-like environment. Like Titus, it was a place where being gay or genderqueer was not only not accepted, it was so...

    I have been waiting for this brilliant book...JR Gray did an amazing job on this one. Titus is a repressed religious man who only knows one way of life. He stumbles upon Angel and Titus's life is forever changed. I loved the struggle and the sweet silence that Titus lived with. He wa...

    In general, I try to stay away from books with a religious theme because I just feel sorry for the people, who, IRL, live that way. Not the normal, religious way. I am talking cult like religion. That's the type of things that I shy away from because to know that it exists and that peo...

    *I was gifted this ARC and freely give my review of it* This book was very emotional and heartbreaking. If I should name one thing that was a little on the negative side it?s that I think it was a little abrupt ending. But it?s HEA so I?m happy ? This is what I liked...
