Madeline Sheehan has awesome writing skills and if the story is really strong then you have a lethal combination. A combination that not every reader would be in to, but if you have an open mind it's an enjoyable ride.
I was desperate for a good read as everything I have read lately has partly been something I 'have' to read and typically not very good.
I have been waiting for this to come out, unfortunately it lacked in some key areas. I really could have stopped reading at any page through the 68% that I did read. Whilst the writing is always good with this Author the layout, story strength and that connected feeling just was not there at all.
I felt like it was dotting the i's and crossing the t's. Putting the Dorothy piece of the puzzle in place just because it had to be put in.
For me I had no connection with the book whatsoever, there was no feeling that I just had to find out.
It lacked interaction/specific conversations between the characters, there was a lot of full paragraphs explaining or describing.
I felt like a lot was old text where the events happened in other books but it was like it was filling the gaps, and it happened a lot so much so that I was not sure where I was at. It went backwards and forwards then landed somewhere in the middle for a while.
I will continue seeking out Madeline Sheehan's books I just won't finish this one.
That's how I feel about this book. I liked it. I liked reading more about these characters and this world. But, it didn't seem to keep the story moving at the same pace as the other books before it. I kept finding myself distracted. I was disappointed since I was a big fan of the first book in this series in spite of the fact that all three men who were interested in Eva in book one needed to drive off a cliff together to their fiery demise.
Anyway, I enjoyed the story of Dorothy and Hawk. I was hoping for a bit more drama with Jase being in the mix, but it was still good. And I thoroughly enjoyed the foreshadowing regarding ZZ, and the epilogue. I will definitely be reading his story, although I suspect he will be another "hero" that I hate and can't find redeemable. Because, as of right now? He is an irredeemable dumpster fire of a person. Shoots his brother. Shoots his other brother, and beats him up. Betrays the club. Joins the enemy. Kills people. And then, because there might be some tiny bit of a soul hiding that he just has to burn out of himself, he leaps into trafficking women (or so it seems, anyway). What a prize. I kinda hope his book involves some kind of hideous comeuppance. Talk about an HEA. ❤
Again, I got distracted...
This book was good. If you've enjoyed this series thus far then you need to read this book for sure. It isn't a standalone, and your enjoyment of it would take a significant hit if you tried to jump in here without reading the other books first.
Can't wait for ZZ's book to see what kind of completely deserved hell the author puts him through.
This book had a different flavor than the first three, and I will say I LOVED Undeniable...Deuce and Eva are still my favorites of all. And in fact I enjoyed them in this book immensley, I also enjoyed Cox, Kami, Ripper and Cage a ton in this book. Their personalities were built upon and relationships were continually solidified. I hated the way Tegen was portrayed as a screaming idiot, it wasn't entertaining or flattering to her character, I just wanted her to stop and I was bored reading about her.
This was weird and not Madeline best...actually since the publication date was pushed back I thought it would be better. Nope. Be prepared to not be fulfilled by this book, which is a shame because it has history that needs to be read for the next in the series.
For years, Dorothy was Jase’s side piece, until one night when Hawk was there for her. That one night started a chain of events that lead all three characters through years of loss and pain. However, through each painful and emotional moment we see that chain of events lead each one of them to their home.
I honestly couldn’t put this book down. A beautifully, emotional and painful story but so worth the read. We also get glimpses of all of our previous couples from the Undeniable series, so it’s like staying in touch with friends you haven’t seen in a while.
I absolutely love this series and can’t recommend it enough.

Just like in book 1, where Deuce only finally wises up and settles down with Eva when he's in his late fifties, Hawk and Dorothy don't get together until their mid to late fifties either. There are several other holes in this plot. How Hawk going to prison brings down the Russian mob boss isn't detailed? Only stated and the reader is just supposed to accept that. But it doesn't make sense and even the lawyer says that Hawk has not been apart of the Russian mob since he was eighteen and he wouldn't have any information on the mobs activities. Hawk going to prison for his father's crimes is a huge injustice, one that surely wouldn't happen. Yet this author once again doesn't care about facts, she seems to just want to create the most depressing situations fir her characters, even when theyre ridiculous and unvelievable. The author is also inconsistent with her own character's natures, because it's just not believable that Hawk, an Alpha male, would not take what he wants, Dorothy. And then after waiting almost twenty years for her to figure out that Jase will never pick her, he waits another eight years, even when she is no longer with Jase. Really?
This author also does not write decent bedroom scenes. They are too quick and too tame. There are missing words and grammatical problems etc and a lack of depth and lots of missing details. But having said that the writing isn't bad. I did like some parts of this, mostly Hawk's scenes, him coming across ZZ was a great scene. I also liked Jase's father's scenes etc. So giving 2.5 stars for those, which is probably generous. But mostly this was depressing and repetitive with unbelievable situations. The author just never gives the couple in her books any real time together, just enjoying each other. Only very brief moments, swamped in decades of depressing heartache, angst and stupid selfishness. This series is a case of, I liked the premise but the constant piling on of depressing drama was draining to read. The author clearly loves depressing themes of throwing your life away making stupid and selfish mistakes. Not what I call dark or gritty, just annoying.
Unbeloved is the story of Dorothy, Hawk and Jase.
We know from early on in this series that Dorothy is the quiet, loyal, kind, reliable, club ‘mistress’ (I refuse to use the word, whore). Having loved Jase for over 17 years, his promise of leaving his wife and starting anew with D as his old lady was one promise he never fulfilled. Broken. Feeling naive. A fool desperate for affection, she threw her allegiance to the wind when she caught the attentions of Hawk. Embarking on an affair with the man who has always kept a distance due to her off-limit stature, they are successful in keeping their relationship a secret, that is until Dorothy falls pregnant. Jase believes the child to be his, but when Chrissy (his wife) finds out about the their long-term affair, she pulls a gun on Dorothy, and life as they know it, changes irreparably.
With no memory and a newborn son, Dorothy keeps a distance from everything she once knew, but she welcomes Hawk. He is Christopher’s Father and has always played a pivotal role in his life. Even after she uprooted them both and moved to California, Hawk visited when he could.
Unbeloved then takes us back to the beginning... when Dorothy, a young wife and mother, her dreams of a nice home with a picket fence, a glimmer of a silly childhood fantasy.
Jase Brady is in the marine corp, he’s married with children, but he’s also the most beautiful man she has ever seen. Leaving her husband and embarking on an affair to last two decades, her loyalty to Jase earns her a mutual respect within the MC, and for many years, the large imposing warehouse of the Hells Horseman MC is home.
So yes, this is predominantly Dorothy’s story…But it’s also Hawk and Jase’s story too. Brothers of the Hells Horseman MC, these guys couldn’t be more further apart. With Jase, what you see is what you get. He’s a selfish B and he knows it, but he’s never felt the need to change, that is until now…
Hawk on the other hand keeps his distance from many, but he has his reasons. Those reasons have been hidden from the club since his initiation many years ago - only Deuce knows the truth, and that truth has the power to put the club in further disarray.
What I loved about this story is the way Madeline Sheehan took it down a notch or two. The last book was so gritty and violent, that I wondered how far she would take this fourth instalment, but she kept it diverse, putting a new spin on things and showed us that this MC can be sensitive and supportive. We know what they are capable of but Unbeloved proves that they are still a family when it matters most.
We get to reconnect with some much loved characters and be prepared to see some of them in a new light. Witness Jase as he seeks help from an unlikely source. And learn the truth about Hawk. Who he is. What his life was like before the club, and how much Dorothy and Christopher really means to him.
This isn’t as gritty as the other books, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Yes, there are still some heart stopping moments. Some angst, hot sex, and that epilogue shows signs to reverting back to the true nail-biting, edge of your seat brewing S-T storm we are accustomed to when an old face causes a world of problems, and is about to sign his own death warrant.
There was a time lapse, in-fact there were a few but it didn’t detach the reader from the story, it helped move it forward, and I’m so pleased that we delved much further into the future by the end.
READ THIS SERIES!
This is Dorothy, Jase and Hawks story ,,,, we already know them quite well from the previous books in the series but you'll get to know them a whole lot better in this one ,,, secrets are revealed ,,, feelings are revealed ,,, lives are changed!!!!
We know that D and Jase were having an affair for many years and Hawk became involved with D too ,,, but we never really know how things transpired ,,,, until now
D wanted and dreamed of a HEA for herself ,,, never really wanted anything except that ,,, she had it all planned out ,,, plans don't always lead to where we want them to go ,,,, and we are all human ,,, humans make mistakes ,,,, D is very very well aware of this
After being shot she is determined she wants something different from life ,,,, for her son ,,, but she is drawn back to the lace that was once her home ,,, once again she finds herself amongst the very people she thought she never wanted to be around again
Jase always wanted the best of both worlds ,,, thinking of himself first and foremost ,,, but after D was shot something changed inside him ,,, he felt guilt ,,, he wanted D but she wouldn't talk to him
Hawk had admired from afar and played some underhand tactics to get what he wanted in life ,,, D being shot brought him back ,,,, he wanted to be in his sons life ,,,, and Ds but she wouldn't interact with him when he spent time with their son
Secrets and lies have been kept for too many years ,,, when they come to light lives are changed ,,, will we see D get her HEA finally? Will she pick one of these guys? Can these three see their way through all the dark clouds and come out the other side??
Clearly there is some build up in this book ,,,it's the Undeniable series after all ,,, so you won't be disappointed ,,, we catch up with this group ,,, family ,,, and the old characters again ,,, finding out where they are now
I will say I'm so hoping the next book won't be too long ,,, this one ends on a bit of a cliffhanger people but I was gripped throughout and kept wanting more and more
I love how this lady writes and what I love even more is how you can connect with the characters with regards to the feelings and emotions they have. I know that most of us live a pretty boring life in comparison to the Hell's Horsemen and their Old Ladies but when you get under their skin and feel what they feel through Madeline's awesome writing, you can connect.
I just want to get across how much this book (and all the other books in this series) really REALLY made me feel. I found myself nodding my head whilst reading things and at time saying 'exactly!' and statements made. I really feel that raw true emotions are poured into these stories and that is what makes them so good time after time.
I love Dorothy and I always knew I would love Hawk and as for the Hells Horsemen.. well doesn't just make you realise the value of true family… the people that will stick by you through everything.
I laughed, i cried, i snorted unattractively and most of all i felt.
this book is a 5/5 unputdownable stars!!!
