A 5starReview of PAST FORGIVEN by Jesse Lorenzo

With a carefully crafted plotline, Jesse Lorenzo has tied up the loose ends of the individual stories that have been woven together by one dark and dangerous tie. With plenty of suspense and angst, this last installment will once again bring readers face to face with Dalton, the devil himself, as he threatens Susan and those who have plotted against him.

Is anyone body safe?

After receiving a phone call, Susan’s chance for new start is immediately threatened. Fearing for her life and those of her family, she turns to the one person who has promised to protect her: Detective Dominic Antonelli. Having him near is the only way she will ever be able to find security. Besides, Susan is drawn to him like no one before. But will her feelings for Dominic get in the way? Will Dominic be able to stop the terror and the man who has created the daily nightmares?

Dominic will do anything to keep his promise to Susan, even if it means pushing her away. He knows better than to get involved with someone from his case; there is far too much room for error when one is distracted. And living with Susan? Well that is more distraction than he really wants. But he, too, is pulled to Susan in ways he has never felt. So how can he maintain his professionalism and focus when she calls to him?

Using great pacing, intriguing and angst-filled scenes, and strong dialogue and passionate chemistry, Jesse keeps readers flying through the pages as they watch the story unfold. As Jesse so seamlessly does, past characters are woven into the storyline, giving readers a brilliant and satisfying look at each couple. I can honestly say I felt satisfied with the conclusion for each couple, and loved that the setting and relationships were so different, making me feel as if I was reading several stories in one.

But Jesse, tell me… Do you have a little something up your sleeve? Readers, beware. Although this story comes to a conclusion for the devil, there is something still brewing. I can just feel it! And I can’t wait!
