Madeline Sheehan-Unbeloved (Undeniable #4)

Warning: This is not a conventional or predictable love story. It involves one woman and two men bound by a love so destructive it spans two decades, pitting brother against brother, and shattering the lives of those touched by it.

Dorothy Kelley is a born romantic, searching for her prince. Instead she finds herself pregnant at fifteen, and a in a loveless marriage by the tender age of eighteen. Then hope comes riding into her life on a motorcycle and within weeks, Jason “Jase” Brady, a member of the Hell’s Horsemen motorcycle club, sweeps Dorothy off her feet.

But nothing is ever simple for Dorothy. Jase is married with children. And as Dorothy patiently waits for Jase to give her the happily-ever-after she’s been dreaming about, James “Hawk” Young, a member of the Hell’s Horsemen with secrets of his own, sees an opening into Dorothy’s life and takes it. What follows is a long and painful journey of self-discovery and forgiveness, as Dorothy comes to realize that home was exactly where she’d left it, and the love she’d forever craved had always been within her reach.

This is the story of Dorothy, Jase, and Hawk.

We are all born pure; it is our journey that burdens us and leads us astray. Our mistakes that beat us down and cover us in guilt and shame, burying us a little more with each passing hardship. It is up to us to dig ourselves out, to come to terms with our faults, to embrace not only our imperfections but those of the ones we love, and to once again find the path we strayed from.

Full circle, we are now coming full circle with Dorothy, Jase and Hawk. This much anticipated story was well worth the wait. And even though going into it I didn't know who I wanted her to pick, I'm happy with how it all played out. 

"And if I hadn't loved him already, I would undoubtedly love him now.
It had taken me half a lifetime, years filled with heartache and one bad decision after another. But I'd finally found him, my prince, hiding inside a man who'd been there all along."

So much happens in this story, we almost have 3 separate stories going on that just so happen to intersect with our 3 main characters. Each one has made mistakes. Mistakes that have cost them all dearly. Decisions that they all wish they could "do over", but those decisions brought them to the end game. Who will Dorothy choose? Once you read it all play out, the answer is really very simple. But life is never that simple right? Just when you think you have it all put back together, everything changes. I will admit I cried, Sheehan has a way of pulling emotions out of the reader you would never usually feel just by reading a book. But we are all in love with these characters, and somehow you feel what they feel. And you cry with them, for sadness, and joy. I could go on and on about this book, but I will leave you to discover on you own. Loved every word of it, soooo looking forward to the next one!
