Book Review: Undeniable by Madeline Sheehan

Undeniable by Madeline Sheehan (GR)

Published: October 6th 2012 (Kindle Edition)

Publisher: Self-published

“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.”
(Goodreads)

Deep breath… Ok…

When I read the blurb for “Undeniable” I immediately knew this book was going to be totally different from what I’m used to and that there were going to be some very controversial themes in it. The readers are warned right from the first page of the book:

His name was Deuce.

He was my “why”.

And this is our story.

It is not a pretty one. 

Some parts of it are downright ugly.

But it’s ours.

I thought I was totally prepared for whatever was on those pages but I just couldn’t get myself to enjoy the book and most of the parts I found just downright revolting.

Now… I understand that the reality that Madeline Sheehan shows us is completely different from mine and I’m trying my best not to judge this book based on comparisons between both but the characters actions, thoughts and behaviours are just… GOD, I don’t even have words for it.  The entire book I was constantly repeating in my mind (and sometimes yelling) “This is sick!”.

I intended on writing this review without spoilers, but that is impossible as I feel the need to justify why I’m only rating this book 1 Chibi. So, if you haven’t read the book yet and don’t want me to spoil it for I recommends you to stop here.

*SPOILER TIME*

  1. The age difference didn’t actually bother me. I’m one of those who think the age doesn’t matter BUT I didn’t feel comfortable with a relationship where the girl was just 16 and he was 34. It just made me feel really uncomfortable. When Eva was older it was ok for me but that time was a little too much for me.
  2. Why do books nowadays always make the male character say things like you’re mine, or in this case, why is Deuce always yelling ate Eva, saying “You’re fuckin’ mine” whenever things don’t go according to what he wants. What?? Just what?? Eva is an object now? F$%%@kdfjdksnfjak
  3. Then this happens: “He’d set the alarm for this reason.  She didn’t know the code, so if she tried to open the door or even a fucking window, he’d know.”.  Kidnap anyone? Now we are in the present of a man who wants to imprison a woman. Wow…
  4. Then, more to the end of the book, we find out that Eva is pregnant (not going to tell who the father is muahahah) and she is staying with Deuce. YES, AFTER EVERYTHING HE HAS DONE SHE STILL WANTS HIM! So, she is staying with him, as in, living with him and his children who are actually the only sane characters in the book, but she has to stay in bed because of some problem with the baby. What does Deuce do? He stops sleeping at home to have sex with the whores at the club. Quote: “He hadn’t been home in four days and he was itching to touch her.  He couldn’t fuck her, something about the baby, but he’d been solving that problem, usually with Miranda…”

EVA, you should have given him the finger when you should. YES, because SHE KNOWS what he is doing. Well, Eva is always admitting how fucked up she is so I’m not even going there…

And one of the worse things: how can someone marry a guy who rapes her, who is a psycho obsessed with her, and always defend him. WORSE, that boy is your brother, even though not by blood.

I just can’t wrap my mind around this book.

The problem is that there are more situations like these throughout the book, and there are more characters that I should talk about in here, but then this review would be the size of the actual book.

All in all, I found this book repulsive at least which was something I wasn’t expecting since so many people liked it from what I read on reviews.

So…

  1. I wouldn’t have given it any stars (or chibis lol). That’s disgusting and unacceptable … and overall, sickening. I mean society is totally twisted nowadays but from your review … Idk … I kind of want to just burn the last 3 minutes of my life off. Like eww. This is mind-blowingly GROSS. Okay, I’m done ranting now … I think. -.^ Thanks for the review? I’ll make sure NOT to read this .

    • You’re welcome ahaha It was really disturbing to read, at least for me but from what I saw on Goodreads, lots of people liked it so…
      And it was nothing, your blog is awesome 😉

      • I was actually creeping on Facebook a second ago, and saw the book … I clicked on a link to go to Goodreads and saw the ratings … Nuh-uh. I’m totally down for any genre or topic. Like seriously, hit me with your best shot. But, incest (Yes, I’ve seen books on this topic .___.) and pedophileness (I’m aware that’s not a word, btw lol) is just a NO.NO. I’m already upset that the main character in Fifty Shades of Grey has my name … Let me NOT rant about how I feel when I see 50-year old women reading that book on the train …

        [ Hehehe, thanks! 🙂 ]

      • From now on it’s a word ahaha When I started reading this I thought “hmm it can’t be THAT bad and the ratings are pretty good. Let’s see what this is about”. Let’s say I regretted that almost immediately -.-‘ And I’ll try and stay clear of books about incest LOL (and pedophileness!)
        And I feel your pain about the name thing, they call her Ana so… >.< I think it's worse when I'm on a bookstore and I just see people going right to the shelf where the series are ahahah

        Thanks for your follow =D
