Warning: This is not a virtuous and tender love story. It’s chaotic, ruthless, and tragic. This story takes love and kills its innocence, steals away the pure moments, and crushes the hearts of the broken. A story born in childhood, tying one girl to one boy, leads to a destructive path—that hurts more than it doesn’t, that shatters more than it heals—testing the love that binds the two through a lifetime.
Tegen Matthews is the daughter of Dorothy Kelley, a club whore in the Hell’s Horsemen. A plain little girl, Tegen falls into the gritty world of the motorcycle club. When she meets a sweet, caring boy, she embraces the warmth and affection he shows her. Cage West is the son of the president of the Hell’s Horsemen. Tall and blond with deep brown eyes, as he grows up Cage realizes the power of his dimpled smile and smooth drawl. With one chance encounter, Tegen becomes forever tied to Cage. Following is a wayward journey that is filled with regrets, mistakes, and heartache, pulling at the threads that hold them together. Cage and Tegen fight hard but love harder, and in the end, what matters is where the journey takes one girl and one boy, who have been twined with one another since the beginning.
This is Tegen and Cage’s story.
Love doesn’t erase a broken heart, and it sure doesn’t change people. But no matter how old, how flimsy, how frayed the rope of love is, it keeps you tethered to the people you love.
Here we go….Madeline Sheehan round #3!! We’ve read Undeniable, we’ve read Unbeautifully and now it is time for UNATTAINABLE – the story of Cage and Tegen (and also a bit about Dirty and Ellie). And how do we always start these reviews…that’s right, with a big ‘ole HOLY FUCK ;)
Since there were two separate story lines (2 for the price of one really, how lucky are we?!) I am choosing to discuss them separately to give each couple their own time.
We all know that there was something going on (or not going on as the case may be) between Tegen and Cage in previous books. If you were itching for more of them well here you go…the whole shebang – sex, drugs, more sex, motorcycles, and yes…MORE SEX. We are 4 years into the future, post Unbeautifully and Tegan is now 22. She is called home by her mom, Dorothy (remember her sad story….ugh! Still so heartbreaking!!) however, the last thing she wants to do is return home to face her past, especially Cage. They encounter each other at one of Deuce and Eva’s infamous “Family Dinners” and hot damn is there tension, and Tegen is as feisty as ever. One thing leads to another and they have quite the scene (raw and passionate don’t even begin to describe it) in the backyard, they then disappear from the dinner on Cage’s bike.
Tegen knows (as do we) that Cage is a freaking MAN WHORE, that’s always the side of him that we have seen. I was hopeful that she would see this and remember what he did to her in the past….wished do come true – she calls her mom to get her before she becomes attached, but is she already?
A different Cage begins to appear to us…one that is possessive and who defends Tegen…it even surprises him!
“What the fuck? Why the fuck… Where in motherfucking – shit – fucking – hell – fucking bullshit had that come from?”
He can’t seem to get her off his mind and takes his aggression out on others. He thinks to himself,
“Aggression? Sexual frustration? Or, how about Aggressive Sexual Tegen Frustration. Yep, he had a bad case of ASTF.”
Tegen and Cage are so back and forth with each other…they are so similar in many ways that it makes them clash – and fight – which leads to some pretty fucking hot sex! They are attracted and confused but they give it a try, even though Tegen feels Cage will ruin her…again.
“The first time had been the day I met him; the second time was the morning after he’d taken my virginity and told me he didn’t love me and right here, right now, was the third time.”
I really loved their chemistry and it tore me apart when things didn’t go the way I wanted…I felt every emotion of their story and was so anxious for the end. Tegen and Cage are both tested emotionally and physically throughout this whole book…how much could they take and where would it lead them? There is so much more to this drama but I don’t want to give it all away, you will not believe some of the shit that happens this time around….you gotta read Unattainable just to believe it!
Dirty and Ellie
And now…..here is a little bit about Dirty and Ellie, how I wish we could have more of them (hint hint Madeline Sheehan ;) )
We have previously been introduced to these characters as well, they were part of Danny and Ripper’s story in Unbeautifully – although there was no connection whatsoever before. This time they are brought together in a most unexpected way and an odd relationship begins to grow. They need each other in ways that they can’t even imagine. There relationship is not passionate in terms of sex but more of compassion, they have this understanding and connection that is so insanely intense and they are in their own world with it. I really really really hope fingers crossed praying for more of them in future books <3
“I’m going to love you. I’m sorry, but you’re just going to have to deal with that, the fact that I need to love you. Because I’m not going to stop, ever. You did this, you made me love you just by being you…”
