She’s the one who got away. He’s the boy she can’t forget…

They say you never forget your first love, but I’m determined to prove Keven Kennedy is just a random boy from my past.

It’s not like I still think about him after all this time. Or daydream about how hot his kisses were and what it felt like to have his hands on my skin.

Nope, that’s not me. I’m in a happy

Chemistry, it’s all about the chemistry. Keven and Cheryl had it, but something went very, very wrong and their relationship imploded. Cheryl is now engaged to a wealthy man and Keven knows there is more to this guy than meets the eye and he will do whatever it takes to keep Cheryl safe. If only she could forgive him for his mistakes, maybe this time their chemistry will be perfect.

I adore The Kennedy Boys series and have been holding out for this story. You see, Keven has always been my favourite of the boys, and I could not wait to see how his story played out. Sure, I was interested in all the stories, but I was truly desperate for Keven. I needed it, more than I needed any of the other books in the series – which is really something when you consider how desperate I’ve been for each of the books.

There was another thing that made me super excited for this one – Siobhan

I honestly do not know where to start. I have developed an obsession with the Kennedy Boys since the release of the first book in the series. “Finding Kyler,” popped up in my, “Recommended For You List,” on Amazon and I downloaded it. I have been obsessed with these characters from that point on, and cannot get enough.

I’d like to preface my review by saying that I have not read any of the previous novels in The Kennedy Boys companion series. Though Forgiving Keven is considered a standalone, I would definitely recommend reading the previous novels to appreciate the story and characters fully.

Forgiving Keven is a second chance romance between two characters that were involved in high school. I wish Davis would have included a few more memories or flashbacks of their past relationship to cement their

The Kennedy Boys are like a guilty pleasure read for me. Forgiving Keven is the seventh book in this series, but can be read as a standalone. However, I highly, highly recommend reading them, in all order to get the true feel and understanding why I love those boys so much.

Keven was my second fave Kennedy and was so excited to read his story. While I know that Siobhan was trying to make this book more suspenseful and thrilling, it felt more dramatized than anything. And that's not a bad thing, b

UGH!!! Since I started reading through the KU app/ subscription, I've had adds for books popping up all over my FB page. 'Forgiving Keven' was the first of The Kennedy Boys to pop up for me. And thank goodness I read these books in order. They can be read as stand-alines, but to get the whole backstory of these handsome boys, start with 'Finding Kyler'. There, you'll be introduced to these mouth watering boys...turned men.

Loved this one! Keven is such a sweetheart! Keven messed up what he had with Cheryl in the past, but now that she's in his life again, he's not living without her. I love second chance romances, and these 2 have some great chemistry. I liked that Cheryl for the most part is a tough cookie; she's bad at reading people sometimes, but she's a good match for Keven. Besides Kyler, Keven has been the Kennedy book I've been waiting for, so it's great that Keven was wonderful. Keven and Cheryl have some ...more

I have been following this series from the beginning and I can't stop reading them all! All of the books are full of suspense and twists, but this one takes the cake. I found myself biting my nails the whole time.

I loved Cheryl and I am glad I got to follow her POV to know what she was going through. There were times I wanted to shake her, but I understand why she does certain things and it made me like her even more. She was a true, real character, not one of those characters that are very unb

So I just finished this a few hours ago and at first I thought, okay I’m going to let this sink in for a day before I write my review but then I realized I couldn’t wait!

Each time I read the next installment of the Kennedy boys, I think “okay..this one is turning into my favorite..” and I thought the same thing with this one too!

Until I got to the very very end and I thought to myself “Ah crap..the next one is gonna be my favorite I think..”

I mean, how is that possible?

OKAY so about THIS book
Wow! Author Siobhan Davis has rocked my world again. This is only the second book of hers that I have read and she constantly keeps wanting to see what's going to happen next. Even though this is the 7th in a series, it can be read as a stand-alone. These are edgy, raw, New Adult books that are not for the prudish as her characters are "real world" twenty-somethings that talk the talk and walk the walk. Their language and actions don't detract from the story; but, gives more credence to the char ...more

I just love every book in this series. I am so glad there are so many Kennedy brothers, and that they each get at least one book devoted to them. Keven was one that we did not really know too much about based on the previous six books. He was definitely mysterious, and it was a lot of fun getting to know him in this one.

The stakes were high in this book, and some of the things that happened were beyond horrifying. I did love having Eva as part of the story. That girl is fierce. It was great hav

Heart wrenching, thrilling, and addictive as heck! I love the dark love stories that is the Kennedy boys!
I adored this story. Keven and Cheryl are so broken at the start! You can tell their hearts were totally broken being a part. Keven is so passionate & you can easily see how he’d be all consuming. I love how the dark moments in this book are evened out with the moments of love and passion. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance!

I love a good Siobhan Davis book. Frogiving Keven was just that. A great book. Great suspense. Second chance love story and the entire Kennedy Family around to help and protect their loved ones. It was beautiful! Cheryl and Keven will keep you on your toes and you will fall in love with Keven.

If you’ve been following my jibberish along for a while, you’ve probably picked up that the “second chance romance” trope is not my favorite. I just hate the thought of all that wasted time due to some sort of misunderstanding.

In the case of Forgiving Keven, I think the time apart for Cheryl and Keven was needed. Time to grow and mature; to realize what truly matters.

Forgiving Keven is a good blend of thrills and suspense, heart wrenching emotions, and sexual chemistry. Keven is a technical geni

Forgiving Keven is a second chance romance, and the seventh title in The Kennedy Boys series. Keven and Cheryl's story is full of drama, intrigue, suspense, and danger, with twists and turns aplenty that will keep you completely engaged.

Keven is intelligent, protective, confident, strong and loving. He recognises the mistakes of his youth an is prepared to do anything to win the woman of his dreams, even if it's making himself vulnerable.

Cheryl is strong, determined, hardworking and fierce.

“Answer me one thing, Cheryl.” His eyes drill into me, and I’m ensnared by the intensity of his gaze. “Do you love him like you loved me?”

Keven Kennedy may descend from a wealthy and famous family, but his charm will not save him from the situation he is in: arrested by the FBI for his illegal actions in the past. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Avoid jail time in exchange for services rendered, being an agent. Keven could refuse the offer and let his lawyers perform their magic.

In this seventh installment of the Kennedy Boys series, we finally get Keven’s story. Keven and Kaden are the Kennedy boys we know the least because when the stories started to unfold, they were away at University, so they were not present much. They felt somewhat mysterious to me. As the books progressed we see a little more of them, until the issue of their biological father explodes. Keven went into a downward spiral that took him into a dark place and into making bad choices. These bad choic ...more

Forgiving Keven is the 7th book in the Kennedy Boy’s Series and even though it is classified as a standalone I highly recommend that you go back to the begin and go on the amazing journey that is the Kennedy family. Davis has become a one click author for me and each and everyone of her books have pulled me in.

For years Keven has been breaking the law, illegally using his amazing computer skills to his advantage weather it be to protect his family or pay a debt to the wrong kind of people. When

Since I'm a HUGE fan of the brilliant Siobhan Davis, I'm not surprised that she's written another epic story, but I'm stating it for any who hasn't discovered that fact for themselves yet. Forgiving Keven has everything in it to make it the perfect read. See, Keven had it all at one point, a great childhood, and that once in a lifetime love with Cheryl, until some news sent him spiraling him into some very bad choices that had him losing that love, and almost losing everything else.

Siobhan Davis releases another OUTSTANDING romance with the second chance romance, Forgiving Keven. As a newer Siobhan Davis reader, I haven’t read the previous books in the series, but I can tell you that I absolutely loved this one! Siobhan has a way of writing that sexy, sweet, angsty and amazing—I literally wish I could start from her first book and binge read everything she’s written because I am in aw of her stories.

Mrs Davis has done it again. I fell in love with the Kennedy boys not that long after starting “Finding Kyler” and it just keeps getting better. The way these books are written really sucks you into the story and you can easily get lost in the crazy and emotional ride that continues to feature throughout this series (I know I did). The tease for this book that features at the end of “Seducing Kaden” left me counting down the days until release day and “Forgiving Keven” is another absolute page t ...more

The Kennedy Boys has been my favourite series from the moment I picked up Finding Kyler, so I was really excited when I discovered we'd be getting Keven's story as I was in need of my next KB fix. This is a series where each book is just as good as the previous, but each boy still brings a different story to the table. Each boy stands out on his own and readers are spoilt for choice about who they like the most. For me, Kyler always came first, but was closely followed by Brad. However, both boy ...more
