Book Review – Unbeloved (Undeniable #4) – Madeline Sheehan

This is one of my absolute MUST READ series! The first book, Undeniable, set the stage for a series that’s unlike any other Biker MC series out there.

In Unbeloved, we are reacquainted with Dorothy. You might remember Dorothy as Jase’s lover. Dorothy is in love with Jase, but has lived for years as ‘the other woman’, seeing as Jase is married. Dorothy is tired of watching Jase with his wife and indulges in another affair, with another Hell’s Horseman, Hawk. She maintains both affairs for a long time before it all comes crashing down. After years of avoiding both men, she has to acknowledge that she still has feelings for one man.

I enjoyed this instalment. Nothing new there… all the books are as gritty and raw as the first one was. However, this one felt different…. and I’ll explain why. Firstly, Undeniable was an epic story that took place in a span of decades. While this is the same in that respect, it differs in the storytelling. In Undeniable, everything was spelled out to us, we got to live the pain, the suffering and the love that was Deuce and Eva’s relationship. In this one, everything felt a bit hurried. While I enjoyed it, I did wish the author would slow down, so I could take my time to cry for Dorothy’s lose and rejoice in her happily ever after.

That being said, I did have tears in my eyes because this was one angst-filled instalment. Dorothy’s happily ever after is not an easy one… and that’s an understatement. She gets the man of her dreams only to lose him again, and it was hard to read. When her happiness came, I was so happy, the tears fell. However, I felt robbed of the moment again. It all felt like it went too fast. I reached the epilogue hoping to see more of this HEA only to find something different… sigh… I just needed more!

The other thing I noticed was the lack of steamy scenes. We all know how unapologetically these bikers take their women. That’s part of why I love the series so much. I love the idea of these possessive bikers taking what they want when they want it. It’s a tiny (huge) fantasy of mine. However, the steamy scenes were about three if not less and they were glossed over. Again, I needed more :/

I think the reason this ended up feeling like a novella was because we already knew Dorothy’s story. This then felt like an extended epilogue. It’s the author’s style to tell us about the other characters in this incredible world she’s created, but then we might end up knowing so much that the subsequent books might never be as epic as the first.

That being said, I absolutely cannot wait for ZZ’s book. Though we know all about his background, his life now sounds even more dangerous, more interesting… and that introduction made my mouth water! I’m not as curious about Preacher but maybe it’s because we don’t know much about him, which might make his book another Undeniable in its epicness 🙂

4 stars.

    Oh I can’t wait to read this. This is my favorite biker series!! Was there a lot of back and forth with the two men? You know I love a love triangle.

    This looks really good – I haven’t read any of the series (yet!) If there’s 3 full of steamy action before this one, I’m in. 🙂
