Warning: This is not a "typical love story". This is an all-consuming, soul-crushing, tear-your-heart-into-pieces story. It’s intense, gritty and raw, dark and disturbing, and it doesn’t happen overnight. This is an epic love story that knows no boundaries and has no time limits. It grows and develops—with hurt, sacrifice, and heartache—over the span of a lifetime. 

Eva Fox is the princess of the Silver Demons Motorcycle Club. Growing up with bikers in the club lifestyle is all that she knows. When she’s a young girl, Eva meets the reason for her existence. Deuce West is the sexy, biker bad-ass of the Hell’s Horsemen Motorcycle Club. Like Eva, he was born and raised in the club—but that’s where the similarities end. Their first meeting is innocent, but as Eva matures into a woman, their chance reunions evolve into a fit of lust and love. Fate continues to bring them together time and time again, but their twisted journey is filled with pain, betrayal, and bloodshed that could tear them apart. Eva sees in Deuce what he cannot see in himself—a man worthy of love—and Eva spends her lifetime proving to him that her undeniable love is the one thing he can’t live without. 

This is Eva and Deuce’s story. 

It wasn’t easy. 
Nothing worth doing ever is.
And love is worth everything

UNDENIABLE was definitely a book that could have gone really wrong or really right for me depending on my mood. It is the very definition of a book that is far outside my comfort zone and challenged my perceptions and limits with every page. It is gritty, raw, heartbreaking, cruel, ugly and so much more…

UNDENIABLE tells the story of Eva, the daughter of the President of one of the US’s fiercest outlaw motorcycle gangs; she meets Deuce, a member of a rival MC club that is in an uneasy alliance. Eva is just five years old when she meets Deuce who is years older. As the years pass and Eva and Deuce meet at various times in their lives their relationship slowly turns from sibling-like friendship, to lust, to all consuming, destructive, chaotic love. Played out over years in a world filled with violence, misogyny, passion, manipulation and cruelty, Eva and Deuce are always each other’s beacon of hope even when each other is the reason for the pain, betrayal and emotional trauma.

This is a world I have no knowledge of, it’s a world I could never live in but it is made clear from the beginning that it is a world you’re not supposed to understand. This is a world that only those who live in it can comprehend and it is because of that – that as a reader I was capable of getting through this book. If you’ve ever watched Sons of Anarchy then you will have some idea of what you’re in for but even then there were times my breath was taken away with some of the twists and turns. Outlaw honour is something that is both exceptionally cruel and yet incredibly just and it stunned me how Madeline Sheehan wrote a story that truly tests the reader’s idea of right and wrong, challenging them to look past black and white and recognising that the world is truly grey. It both impressed and terrified me!

UNDENIABLE is a love story but unlike none I have ever experienced before. It is twisted, painful, heartbreaking, vulgar and a complete mind-fuck but one thing that is utterly undeniable about this book – it is unforgettable and shows that there is truly beauty to be found in even the most hopeless and unfathomable situations.
