Sunny Shelly’s Review: Forsaken, by Gabrielle G.


Forsaken by Gabrielle G. is LIVE!! #OneClick today!


For as long as I can remember, I’ve been in love with Chris.

I was never old enough or brave enough to act on it.

He never saw me like anything more than his best friend’s little sister.

So, when he falls in love with my best friend, I smile and try to move on.

Only I never thought I would lose them both.


One tragic night.

One day leaving me wondering what my future holds.

One event that has me seeing Salomé under a different light.

She’s the only one who can understand what I’m going through.

She’s also the only one who can soothe my pain.

I need her to survive. But I certainly shouldn’t take advantage of it.

A brother’s best friend novel like no other.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Wow. Just wow. Forsaken is not your typical brother’s best friend romance. Chris and Salome’s path to HEA is so twisted and hard and emotional and gritty and at times, ugly. I was really curious about the two of them after reading Heartbroken (Gritt Family #1) and Forsaken was nothing like what I expected between Chris and Sal.

Chris has always been an unofficial part of the Gritt family, as Aaron’s best friend. What started out as a crush on him when she was 6 years old turned into something deeper for Salome, and every guy she dated was compared to Chris. Nothing had ever happened between them since he’s 10 years older than her, but she has been in love with him for as long as she can remember.

Chris is bisexual, as we know from the last book. He dated Sal’s brother Luke when they were teenagers. (I haven’t read Luke and Dex’s book from the previous series, so I’m not sure how much detail there is about that relationship.) But this book really is about the romance between Chris and Salome. The fact that Chris is bisexual definitely is a big part of who he is and how that impacts their relationship.

It struck me as odd that Sal cared less about the fact that Chris had been with Luke than he was with her best friend. I don’t want to say too much about the events that lead Chris to be with Salome after being with her best friend. But had he not had that relationship first, there probably would not have been a relationship with her. And that screws with Chris’ mind. Sal feels guilt about it too, but it really messes with Chris, and it takes A LOT of work on his part to get to a good place. Meanwhile, Sal feels once again like she’s an outsider in her family when her brother takes Chris’ side over hers. Like she’s not good enough. Like no one cares what she thinks. And Chris has similar struggles. Why won’t Sal go with him when he needs to leave the memories of his ex behind?

It’s a tricky situation, and there is a lot of upheaval for both of them, but the resolution is a beautiful HEA. I am so enjoying this series! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.



Gabrielle G will do anything for a hot cup of tea, still celebrates her half birthdays and feels everyone has an inner temptuous voice.

Born in France and having lived in Switzerland, Gabrielle currently resides in Montreal with her husband, three devilish children and an extremely moody cat.

After spending years contemplating a career in writing, she finally jumped off the deep end and took the plunge into the literary world. Writing consumed her and she independently published her work.

Gabrielle’s style is fiercely raw and driven by pure emotion. Her love stories leave you out of breath, yearning for more, while at the same time wiping away tears.
