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.
Carrying on two secret affairs is no easy feat. As Dorothy tries to dig herself out of the mess she’s created, covering one mistake with another, tragedy strikes, nearly costing Dorothy her life and that of her unborn son.
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.

MY REVIEW ~ REBECCA
UNBELOVED BY MADELINE SHEEHAN
HOW DO YOU BEGIN TO DESCRIBE THE UNDENIABLE SERIES?
WHAT WORDS CAN EVEN START TO GIVE ANY COMPREHENSION OF THE WORLD AND CHARACTERS MS SHEEHAN HAS CREATED…………
THE LIST COULD GO ON AND ON, ALL WOULD BE CORRECT YET NONE, ‘TIL YOU READ AND EXPERIENCE THEM FOR YOURSELF, CAN EVER LET YOU KNOW JUST WHAT A SHATTERINGLY VISCERAL PUNCH THESE BOOKS DELIVER.
THIS IS A FAMILY STORY, A HUGE SWEEPING EPIC SPANNING GENERATIONS WITH SO MUCH DEPTH TO HER CHARACTERS AND THE WORLD THEY INHABIT THAT IT`S HARD NOT TO BE INVESTED, IT`S HARD NOT TO TREAT THEM AS REAL. SOME YOU LOVE, SOME YOU DETEST, OTHERS JUST ANNOY THE FUCK OUT OF YOU AND SOME YOU WANT TO SAVE WITH ALL YOUR HEART BUT YOU BECOME SO EMOTIONALLY INVESTED YOU FEEL AND CARE FOR EVERY ONE, THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY, THE CRAZY AND THE BROKEN.
EACH BOOK IS SO EAGERLY ANTICIPATED BECAUSE MADELINE SHEEHAN IS A MASTER OF WORDS, HER PERSPECTIVE ON LIFE AND RELATIONSHIPS, BOTH THE FUNCTIONAL AND DYSFUNCTIONAL, MAKE EACH ONE A RIDE YOU DON`T WANT TO END.
UNBELOVED IS THE 4TH INSTALMENT OF THIS SAGA ~ HAWK , JASE AND DOROTHY’S STORY
IT’S DIFFERENT FROM THE PREVIOUS BOOKS NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT, BUT THEN LIFE IS LIKE THAT, IT’S AS MUCH ABOUT THE SWEET, THE FUNNY, THE PAINFUL AND THE HARD AS IT IS THE CRAZY, THE STEAMY AND THE MADNESS. LIFE’S A FUCKED UP MISH MASH OF MOMENTS THAT MAKE UP THE WHOLE, THE PACE CHANGES AT TIMES AS DOES THE PERSPECTIVE.
THE LOVE TRIANGLE. IT’S COMPLICATIONS, DECISIONS AND CONCLUSION ARE THE MAIN FOCUS OF THE STORY BUT OH, IT WAS SO MUCH MORE.
LESS THAN HALFWAY THRU;
COX HAD MADE ME GAG
RIPPER AND COX WERE COMIC RELIEF
PREACHER AND DEUCE MADE ME SMILE
AND KAMI IS, AS USUAL, HER OWN BRAND OF CRAZY.
ONE CHARACTER STOPPED MY HEART AND ONE BROKE IT ALL BEFORE I EVEN GOT PAST 47%
RARELY, EVEN IN A LIFETIME OF READING, AM I TEMPTED TO SNEAK PEEK AT THE END OF THE BOOK BUT OH HOW I WANTED TO WITH UNBELOVED. DESPERATELY!!!! HOWEVER, I CONTINUED TO RIDE THIS ROLLERCOASTER RIGHT TO THE END, WHERE I FINISHED,
AN EMOTIONAL WRECK
LYING ON THE FLOOR
GAZING AT THE STARS
THINKING WTF EPILOGUE DID I JUST READ?
UNBELOVED IS MORE THAN JUST THE STORY OF A WOMAN’S JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE WITH ALL THE CHOICES TWISTS, TURNS AND MISTAKES THAT WE MAKE AND NAVIGATE THAT HOPEFULLY PUT US WHERE WE WERE MEANT TO BE. IT’S A CONTINUATION OF A STORY THAT GETS BETTER AND BETTER WITH EACH BOOK, A STORY OF LIFE LOVE AND FAMILY ……………..
SO MS SHEEHAN DELIVERED,
