My rating: 5 of 5 stars
UNLOVED is a slow burn, “grey” (I’ll explain that!), kind of suspenseful contemporary romance. This book just blew..my..mind! I loved EVERY single page, from the first sentence to the very last and it’s probably one of my most favorite books of 2017! Here’s why. Katy Regnery CAN WRITE! Her words were poignant, profound and beautiful. They built a world that felt believable and convincing. The intricate details bought the characters to life in a way that will stay with me for a long time. Cassidy was not the typical macho man alpha that I prefer reading about but I adored him anyway! He was sweet and in ways naive but still so strong (emotionally as well as physically) and loving. His unique situation was devastating (tissues needed!) and tragic. Meeting Brynn was the magic ingredient he needed to unlock his heart. She became the light in Cassidy’s world even though she was coming to terms with a brutal loss. I said this is a “grey” read because Brynn and Cassidy’s backgrounds and pasts were dire, harsh and the story definitely could have twisted towards a darker theme but all that is balanced out by the lighter feeling of HOPE and love that’s weaved throughout. There’s a humongous twist that was GENIUS, it took me by surprise and I loved it! This story takes a horrible, IMPOSSIBLE situation and makes it POSSIBLE in a fairytale like ending that pulls at your heartstrings. A must for my READ AGAIN E-SHELF! Told from dual POVs with a happy ever after. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Publication Date: October 8, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
The sins of the father. The burden of the son.
My name is Cassidy Porter…
My father, Paul Isaac Porter, was executed twenty years ago for the brutal murder of twelve innocent girls.
Though I was only eight-years-old at the time, I am aware – every day of my life – that I am his child, his only son.
To protect the world from the poison in my veins, I live a quiet life, off the grid, away from humanity.
I promised myself, and my mother, not to infect innocent lives with the darkness that swirls within me, waiting to make itself known.
It’s a promise I would have kept…if Brynn Cadogan hadn’t stumbled into my life.
Now I exist between heaven and hell: falling for a woman who wants to love me, while all along reminding myself that I must remain…
