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...
The sins of the father. The burden of the son.
Unloved by Katy Regnery is LIVE!
I expected to read a darker book but what I read was beautiful, emotional, and sweet. Unloved is a contemporary romance with some mystery and intrigue to it. There’s a twist you never see coming and by the end, you’re left satisfied.
Cassidy is a serial killer’s son. His story is sad. I don’t think any child should go through what he did. No matter who your father is every child deserves a chance at a normal life but unfortunately, Cass doesn’t have that chance. I had a love/hate relationship with him. I understood why he was the way he was but I also didn’t understand. I grew frustrated with him but then he would redeem himself or do something that would make me realize why he did what he done and I would love him all over again.
Brynn.. my stubborn, heartbroken Brynn. I loved her so much. She was such a strong heroine and her and Cass complimented each other. I loved them both equally and was frustrated with both the same. You don’t read too many books that both main characters are equal but in Unloved they are. Brynn was sweet and strong. When she loved she loved with every bone in her body and she didn’t take no for an answer. Where Cass was lacking she made up for. They weren’t perfect by any means but they were perfect for each other.
I loved that Cass was the virgin, not Brynn. It was a nice change. I loved how addicting the book was. The story flowed perfectly. Sometimes you had to suspend disbelief but it’s a work of fiction and I had no problem doing that. I love the characters even the side ones even though they weren’t in the book much.
A couple things bothered me about this book. At first, I had a hard time getting into it because I felt like I was constantly being reminded how Northerners pronounced things so when it came to Cass’s POV I had him talking like a hillbilly with no teeth. It took awhile to get that accent and image out of my head and visualize who I wanted him to be based on Katy’s description and the way his voice should sound in my head from other Northerners I’ve heard. (Hello! Mark Wahlberg!)
Also, Cass’s penis being called a pecker. That’s probably just me but it was really hard to get into some scenes thinking about it being called a pecker. I couldn’t help but keep laughing about it each time I read it. Lol. Other than that I loved it! I finished it under three hours because I couldn’t put it down. Katy Regnery knows how to write a damn good book.
