Would you live a lie to hold onto the one you love? 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?

What didn’t you like about Eric London and Iggy Toma ’s performance?

THEIR VOICES WERE EXTREMELY ANNOYING

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Unforgiven?

LITERALLY ALL OF IT

Any additional comments?

I am so angry that I spent even a second listening to this book. First of all, it was literally written like a fan fiction. The most tacky, embarrassing, and unrealistic sex scenes were in almost ever chapter of this book. I'm not over exaggerating when I say this, but you could find something written like this on fanfiction.net. The author also made sure the two main characters were as sexist as possible which was obnoxious to listen to because it was so obvious that it was written by a woman. ALSO MORE THAN ANYTHING THE AUTHOR DIDN'T DO HER RESEARCH. The book is set in Salt Lake City and the only reason she picked that was because she wanted to set the book in a religious town to make it even harder for the characters. BUT HERES THE THING. I am from SLC and I am gay and I have only been welcomed with love. SLC is an EXTREMELY LGBTQ friendly place and the fact that she picked this town as the place where it is set just because of STEREOTYPES is offensive to say the least. Yes, there are Mormons here obviously but there are far more non Mormons or ex Mormons then actual active Mormons. AND the people that are Mormons are still VERY FRIENDLY TO LGBTQ PEOPLE. Honestly, theres no other way to put this but this book is tacky and offensive. If you are LITERALLY just looking for a book that has a badly written sex scene in every chapter I guess this book is for you.
