Review: Undeserving by Madeline Sheehan

Title: Undeserving
Author: Madeline Sheehan
Genre: Romance
Type: Book 5 of Undeniable series
POV: Third Person

After being freed from a prison sentence, Damon (Preacher) Fox had an existential crisis. As the VP of Silver Demons MC, he started to reevaluate his role within the club. He was riddled with indecision until a chance meeting with a runaway changed the course of his life.

Debbie Reynolds was young and desperate. After running away from her past, she scraped by to survive. Meeting Preacher gave her hope amidst her bleak situation. But coming from two different worlds came with different sets of challenges in order to earn the happiness they deserved.

Undeniable was my first ever MC book. After finished reading my first reaction was “WTF did I just read and why did I like it so much?” lol! Since then it has become my favorite MC series. I was disappointed when the series went on a hiatus and so glad it’s now back in track.

On the one hand, he wanted to fuck her, and on the other, he wanted to save her. Were both possible? Or was one going to cancel out the other?

I like how we get to see Preacher in a different light. Before he was known as the hardass leader, he was just a young man with self doubt while carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders.

There was nothing more for her out there, nothing better waiting around the corner. And everything she’d been so desperately seeking were nothing more than the pipe dreams of a foolish girl.

I sympathized with Debbie’s situation. For someone so young she had to grow up fast. Even though I didn’t agree with some of her action, I understood her desperation and naivety.

“You’re so stupid,” she continued, her voice cracking. “You’re so lucky and you don’t even realize it. I wish every day I had a family like yours.”

I like how the story was set up with scenes from the past with bits and pieces of the present. It was nice to learn about their relationship. I especially like how their love grew organically. However, the beginning was a little slow for me and (since this story is a prequel) already knowing or could guess what would happen in the future took a bit of possible surprise factor.

Undeserving is a story of two individuals balancing each other while they’re at a crossroad of their lives. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.

Note 1:
I missed Crazy Frankie and I love him in Undeniable. I really wish he’ll get his story one day. Even just a novella would make me happy.

Note 2:
ZZ has been my favorite since the beginning. While I’m excited for his book I’m also worried because I’m not sure I’d like the direction his story is going lol!
