Undeniable by Madeline Sheehan

Friday, September 13, 2013
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.

Review: Undeniable just didn't have that spark for me. In the beginning, I felt drawn in by the world Sheehan created, but after a while I realized there were a lot of unanswered questions I had. A lot of world building that didn't happen and considering a lot of the action revolved around the club, not a lot of detail was provided. This kind of killed the story for me. It felt a little half baked. While I really liked Deuce in the beginning, I didn't really like him toward the end. He kind of turned out to be a jerk as the years went on, which I guess can be attributed to the club life style. But it sort of seemed out of nowhere. When we first meet Deuce and he's 24, he has this softness about him. Perhaps because he's still young and he doesn't have much dirt on his slate. As time goes on the book jumps several years and each time the reader gets a taste of the differences in Deuce. The thing that bothered me was there wasn't any showing. It would've been interesting to see the different struggles he went through as the President of Hell's Horseman because surely there are struggles when you're involved with a lot of criminals and groups like the mafia.

While I'm a fan of shows like Sons of Anarchy, I was a little disturbed by some of the stuff that went on in this book. Mostly, it was a "sex" scene that was basically rape, yet it never really treated as such. It was kind of glazed over. Eva didn't even treat her abuse like anything monumental. I was really disappointed in her by the end of the book. She was such a likeable character in the beginning, but there really wasn't any growth, more like a decline. I couldn't wrap my head around the fact that she let herself get used by Frankie and at the same time, from the very first conversation between the two it really seemed like she was leading him on. I don't understand why there was all the "baby" calling, if they were supposed to be "family." I wouldn't let my brother or adopted brother call me baby and touch me like that. It was really inappropriate and I wanted to know why Eva wasn't more resistant to his advances. It's like he wore her down eventually.

Overall, I liked the idea of Undeniable, but I really wish the background of the characters and the club were fleshed out more.
