Undeniable by Madeline Sheehan
Cole "Deuce" and Eva Fox's book
Undeniable (Undeniable book 1)
By Madeline Sheehan
Warning: This is not a typical love story. This is an all-consuming, soul-crushing, tear-your-heart-into-pieces story. It’s intense, gritty and raw, dark and disturbing, and it doesn’t happen overnight. This is an epic love story that knows no boundaries and has no time limits. It grows and develops—with hurt, sacrifice, and heartache—over the span of a lifetime.
Eva Fox is the princess of the Silver Demons Motorcycle Club. Growing up with bikers in the club lifestyle is all that she knows. When she’s a young girl, Eva meets the reason for her existence. Deuce West is the sexy, biker bad-ass of the Hell’s Horsemen Motorcycle Club. Like Eva, he was born and raised in the club—but that’s where the similarities end. Their first meeting is innocent, but as Eva matures into a woman, their chance reunions evolve into a fit of lust and love. Fate continues to bring them together time and time again, but their twisted journey is filled with pain, betrayal, and bloodshed that could tear them apart. Eva sees in Deuce what he cannot see in himself—a man worthy of love—and Eva spends her lifetime proving to him that her undeniable love is the one thing he can’t live without.
This is Eva and Deuce’s story.
It wasn’t easy.
Nothing worth doing ever is.
And love is worth everything.
When I review books, I reserve a 5+ star rating for books just like Undeniable.
Undeniable was an all consuming, brilliantly written story that spiked a myriad of emotions. I gasped out loud, I jumped off my couch, I weeped, I got enraged, I smiled. Quite simply, I'm blown away. Undeniable is not for everyone. There is no fluff. It is undeniably raw and I would not be surprised to learn that the author, Madeline Sheehan spent hours and hours of research time dissecting the inner workings of a motorcycle club house.
I first heard about Undeniable from a fellow blogger, Herding Cats & Burning Soup. I read an interview post with Madeline Sheehan and I was totally in the mood for something "out there". Something different. Something that would challenge my emotions. Undeniable surpassed my expectations. Deuce and Eva are not easy characters to forget. I could not put the story down. The hours were ticking away to the wee hours of the morning and when I finished the book, I was wide awake thinking about them hours afterwards.
Ok let me start off by saying, if you don't like the F-word move on. Undeniable is not for you. If you are not open to reading about a sub-culture like motorcycle gangs, pick another book. If you are remotely uncomfortable with scenes that contain women used as whores, men who are not faithful to their wives or scenes with forced sex, keep browsing.
That is not entirely what the Undeniable is. All of the above are intricate to the plot and are not just written in for shock value. There is sex but I would not label Undeniable as erotic because that is not what the story is about. Sex is not the main theme. Believe it or not, it is a love story. Just a gritty love story.
The story duration takes the reader through a good portion of Eva's lifetime. Starting from when when she was five years old, the story wraps up when she is thirty five. Eva is not a typical heroine. I felt like I was reading her autobiography and not about a fictional character that Madeline Sheehan created. Hero is not the proper term for Deuce either. He is too diabolically delicious for a term as simple as "hero". No, I don't want him. No, I will not fantasize about him. Eva can have him. Deuce is so far off my radar as a book boyfriend that you wouldn't even be able to get a signal. Having said that, I will read Undeniable over and over again. When book 2, Unbeautifully comes out in June, it will be an auto download.
Teasers: Chuck running shoes, Horsemen and Demon motorcycle clubs, a plethora of drama, psychopathic crazy Frankie
(any book I read that includes a rape scene is high not because it was hot but because this serves as a warning)
