Oh, my god, I loved this. Callum and Dylan have their share of baggage, but they make it through.
I love the setting for this series, and the description of the dances. But the characters are so real, so relatable, they’re impossible to resist.
These guys are so brave. They face life and it’s challenges head-on. They run the risk of being abandoned and/or shamed by their families. Since they’ve found their chosen families at the club, it’s okay.
I’ll always read anything Colette writes. I’ve enjoye

So sweet! Loved Dylan&Callum❤

I think this book is the sweetest in the series. Forgotten was cute and sweet too, but Callum and Dylan was super sweet like a candy or a marshmallow♥ I really loved their story.

It was really good to be back in the Heaven and Hell Club, I missed those guys and seeing them dancing is everything- although I really wanted to see Dylan dancing for Callum in the Club.

Callum was the loveliest and my heart hurt for him and his past, but it was so good to see him change and

Callum tries to start his life anew, although on his shoulders he carries not only the burden of his own mistakes, but also that of the crime committed by his father. When he gets a job as a bartender at Heaven and Hell club, instead of feeling relieved, he becomes concerned about the opinion of his intolerant mother and sister. Moreover, he discovers something totally unexpected about himself and this revelation changes his life forever.
And all thanks to Dylan, a pole dancer who hides his true

Forgiven, the third book in the Heaven and Hell Club series is a spectacular read. This Colette Davison story is easily read as a standalone, but if you haven't yet read the previous books, you should because they are amazing! This one is less angsty than the other Heaven and Hell books, but it still has the same type of heartfelt feel to it.

Callum and Dylan make for an interesting and intriguing couple. Both are broken men with pasts who have shaped them into the men they are today. If you lov

FR- Alors alors... alors je dois dire que Dylan m'intriguait beaucoup et que je me demandais bien qui l'auteure allait pouvoir trouver pour lui. Et j'ai beaucoup aimé le personnage de Callum. Je dois dire que l'histoire de Callum et Dylan était un peu moins difficile que celles des autres personnages jusque là ce qui fait que je suis restée légèrement en dehors.

J'ai adoré retrouver l'univers du Heaven and Hell Club ainsi que tous les personnages des tomes précédents. C'est une famille de coeur c

This story touched my heart!

Forgiven is the perfect title for this book. It's the third in the Heaven and Hell Club series that's best enjoyed in order because of the interconnected characters but you can read it as a standalone if you want to. I listened to the first two books as audios without having read them and I loved them. Sometimes that can be a better experience than reading, sometimes not. In this case I loved reading the book but I also hope it joins the first two and comes out in aud

I think this is the best book Colette Davison has ever written. I've read and enjoyed the rest of the Heaven and Hell Club series, but none of those stories got to me on quite the same level as this one. Callum and Dylan have such big, beautiful hearts, and though they're guarded from past pain and rejection, I could sense their capacity for deep, meaningful love from the very beginning. Sure, the cocky facade Dylan put on for the rest of the world wasn't that appealing, and I did want to kick C ...more

Forgiven is another excellent addition to the Heaven and Hell Club series and I loved everything about it. This wonderful story is beautifully written, sweet, emotional, sexy, gritty, deals well with some very difficult issues, has amazing characters and I was fully engaged from the first page to the last. I love Callum so much and my heart breaks for him as he deals with his bigoted family and tries to move on with his life after making so many mistakes in his past. Dylan is snarky, funny and h ...more

This is the third book in the series, but in my opinion it can be read as a standalone. I only read this book yet in this series and had no problems following.
Reading this book was a wonderful heartwarming experience. The emotions and inner conflicts of the main characters were represented in a soft and empathetic way. Two young adults on their way opening towards each others and daring to lay open their feelings and fears, but also trying to heal the hurts and scars from their pasts. Besides so

Forgiven was an easy book to read, albeit a rollercoaster of emotions. It was beautifully written and Colette definitely tugged at the heart strings with this one.

Forgiven looks at a relationship between two characters that do not wish to have a relationship, but once they found each other they were not willing to give up on each other - regardless of their past.

Callum is damaged, and has a dark past. One that he worries will affect his future. But when he walks into Heaven and Hell, his entire

"He saw himself reflected in Callum. They'd both had hard childhoods, but they were both doing their best to turn things around and make their futures brighter." I think these thoughts of Dylan are the perfect blurb for the story of Dylan and Callum. Two incredibly unperfect men, who have lived most of their lives lying to friends and family but mostly to themselves. I loved the fact that the author did not choose to pair any of Dylan or Callum with a strong man acting as the shoulder for the ma ...more

The main characters of this book are Callum, a man with a criminal record and a dark past and Dylan, a pole dancer who is hiding behind lies. Both men are wearing a mask in front of everyone and hiding their true selves. Both men are broken and they don't believe they deserve love. The two of them are so similar and so different at the same time. As their friendship evolves they slowly grow closer and start opening up to each other. They find forgiveness and love and they're finally able to be t ...more

Demasiado intensa y tierna para mí. Fue doloroso seguir leyendo pero tampoco podía dejar de hacerlo porque la historia de los personajes te mueve demasiado. A medida que los conoces y simpatizas con ellos, más quieres saber qué va a pasar y cómo va a terminar todo. La autora también tiene un estilo excelente que te sumerge por completo en la historia. ¡Mi favorito hasta ahora en la saga!

Too intense and tender for me. It was painful to keep reading but I couldn't stop doing it either because the

I loved Dylan and Callum more than any other character’s Colette Davison has written to date!! That is saying something because I’ve loved all her main characters! Dylan was out and proud and oh so loud! Callum was so confused; he did not know what he was, but he knew Dylan made him hot and bothered. This was a low angst, hot and steamy, fluffy romance. They made an interesting couple, I loved how Dylan was so patient with Callum. They were both broken in their own ways but together they were pe ...more

Love all heaven & hell series but this one blew me away, Dylan & Callum they are made for each other so adorable from friends to lovers. Callum trying to start again living with his uncle Ezra away from his bigoted family looking for work no one gives him a chance until Michael at the heaven & hell club as a barman, that's where Dylan sees him it's lust at first site. Dylan's cocky pushy, and cheeky so easily bored make-up wearing twink and doesn't realise Callum's straight and agrees just to be ...more

I love this author and I love this series, some of them have been hard to read, gut wrenching even, this one was another winner for me. Dylan rubbed me the wrong way previously and again at the start of this one, but we were supposed to read it that way, Dylan hides his pain behind a cocky, arrogant facade. Callum is a sad and lost soul searching for something worthwhile to hold onto. They were both, in Dylan's words, screw ups, they were both broken inside. Amazing writing, touching and heartbr ...more
Excellent addition to the series

I love this series it’s just gets better as it go’s on . We form a bond with all the guys in the club and they are just like one big family that u want to be part of.

Dylan was a cocky sh!t in the last story to see him evolve and become the person he was in this story was a fantastic journey. Callum might have had his share of ups and downs more downs than ups but this story shows that family isn’t always blood related.

I really can't explain how much I adored this story. It was sweet, cute, hot. Simply amazing.

I fell in love with Callum and Dylan immediately. They were wonderfully human, with flaws and strengths, insecurities and masks they showed to the world, so incredibly good hearted and caring. I'm amazed by how the author made it seem that Callum and Dylan came into each other's lives at the perfect moment, two incomplete men who finally found one another. They both carried emotional baggage and it was

I loved reading this book.
We met Dylan in the other books in this series. He was literally working his way though as many men as he could. A stunning pole dancer at the club, who loves makeup, but a man eater.
Callum, he's a troubled young man, fresh out of Juvie and looking to find a better future for himself. Has a problematic family, understatement of the year.
This is a beautiful love story. Pretty low angst but full of firsts. I love the characters but Colette never fails on beefing out the

Callum has had a very intolerant upbringing in regards to who people can love and is further mirred in bearing his father's burden upon himself. Dylan has all the walls built up and he deals with his issues by being promiscuous. Callum is straight but when he catches Dylan performing his sensual dancing something pulls him closer. Just one giant of a found family who are not afraid to go for what they want, i found them extremely relatable. Soul baring and a lot of healing done to move forward a ...more

Dylan is someone who does his best not to let anyone get to close to him and tells lies to male other believe that he has the perfect family when he lost his family early in his childhood and was put in foster care until he meets Callum
Callum has no issues with gay couples but his father killed someone because he was gay and his mom and sister is there supporting his father and he does not want anything to do with it

I love this series by Colette Davison it just sucks me in and keeps me there so inthralled with the story as it unfolds that it makes it impossible to put down I have to read the whole thing right now. After meeting Dylan earlier in the series you just knew it would take someone special to be able to appreciate his special abrasive personality but when Callum comes along it was like something inside him changed and now if he could just get Callum to see, life together could be perfect.

Forgiven by Colette Davison is the third book in the Heaven and Hell Club series. Hurt/comfort, drama, a sweet and then steamy slow burn romance, hot descriptions that intrigue and tantalize...this book grabs you and makes you feel snd fall in love. Callum and Dylan are fantastic and their lovestory will make you smile.

I was able to read an advanced copy of this title and am reviewing voluntarily and honestly my own thoughts, opinion and reactions based on that copy.

Each book in this series just gets better and better. Callum and Dylan were the absolute best. Both were troubled, flawed, and scared and still I fell in love with them. They brought out the best in each other and saw through the crap to the real person. Watching them fall in love was awesome. I loved this book.
