by Madeline Sheehan
WOW. I really do not know what else to say about this one. This title was recommended to me by some friends. I was in the middle of another book and finally got to it yesterday. I have a SERIOUS thing for Sons of Anarchy, and this does read like a season or two of their shenanigans. Deuce IS Jax for me, and that alone is reason enough to read this.
I can't chime in with my usual "Oh, I thoroughly enjoyed this book!" because this one isn't to be "enjoyed".....it is an emotional journey through some really, really dark things. This is not a traditional romance of all hearts and flowers. Madeline Sheehan takes us on a 30-year journey of sheer emotional torment.
Eva meets Deuce at Rikers Island when she is only 5 years old, and they are both visiting their fathers. She manages to find a soft spot in the hard biker's heart........and soft spot in a man who cannot afford soft spots. This book traces their brief meetings over the next 3 decades and how those meetings and choices made impact their lives and the lives of those closest to them. Sometimes, things are just Undeniable.
I would recommend this book ONLY to people who aren't afraid of the unusual. This is NOT a mainstream Cinderella story. No white horses in this one. At some times, you are asking yourself, "Do I even like any of these people????" But, you end up seeing how it all works to provide a gritty tale of obsession, lust, revenge, love and horror. And life isn't always easy............***ANN***
