Unbeloved (Undeniable #4) by Madeline Sheehan



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. 

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.

My Review

This is the story of Jase, Dorothy and Hawk. Is their story of redemption, resignation and rebuilding.
Dorothy has made mistakes. She fell in love with Jase since the age of 18. I love the way she thinks about him the first time she met him:

“What an absolutely, perfectly sculpted, beautifully smelling . . . scumbag.”

Many years later she falls in love with Hawk too.  This triangle couldn't last and after almost losing her life, she left them both and moved away from them and the Club. She decides to raise her son away from the MC family. 

After 7 years only an emergency will make Dorothy come back to the MC. When it happens, she has to deal with her feelings for both men and make a final choice.
I was prepared to love Hawk because I have rooted for him since the moment I realized he had feelings for Dorothy but I wasn't prepared to care for Jase. In my opinion, he had too many chances to make a decision and if he had, so much heartache could have been avoided. So I was surprised to feel bad for him, I found myself rooting for him to improve, to stop drinking, to fix his relationship with his daughters. Madeline Sheehan did a beautiful job with his road to redemption.

I was very pleased with the end, although I was sad about what happened to a few of the characters. 
Deuce was still awesome. Cox and Kami are still crazy and I wish their storyline in this book was different. 
I was happy to see that Tegan and Cage are still happy, despite fighting all the time.
I don't know how ZZ can be redeemed... This is going to be a hard one...
Preacher is next.

“You’re my woman, Dorothy Kelley,” he said, his deep voice soft. “Always have been, always will be. I’ve waited a long-ass time for this, for you, so havin’ to wait a little longer ain’t gonna kill me.”

4.5/5 Fangs
