WOW! She did it again! Madeline Sheehan is pure genius, and I am in awe of her amazing talent. Seriously. I have however, come to an interesting conclusion—I am one sick twisted bitch for loving these shockingly debauched men as much as I do. I mean really, this one pushed the limits. I didn’t even know it was possible to get more raw, in a seedy sort of way
, than the first two have been—BUT I WAS WRONG… I was creeped out, horrified, and somewhat traumatized—but if I am being brutally honest with you I was also fascinated, and utterly captivated, again. I LOVED EVERY SECOND OF THIS STORY. Every. Freakin. Second. I’m almost ashamed, almost
Unattainable is Cage and Tegan’s story. It was brutal. I mean these two go through the ringer to be together, and at every turn they face another obstacle. Most of the time they don’t overcome the hurdles they have to jump and they both suffer for it. I was frustrated, angry, and sad much of the time—but I FELT
Cage and Tegan had so much more of a past than I had even anticipated. Their lives had been entwined since they were young kids. And Tegan looked up to Cage as a sort of father figure at first. The older I grew, the more I grew to love him until I no longer looked to him as the one stable figurehead in my life, but instead loved him with an intensity that at times bordered on madness.
Then she had a crush, which eventually turned into love. And she gave him her virginity at the age of 16. He didn’t return her love, and she was devastated.
After sex she told him she loved him he said… “Listen,” he continued slowly. “I don’t know what the fuck you’re thinkin’ but… it just ain’t like that for me, baby.”
AGHHHH! Cage you ASS!!! But I still love you
;)Which, in the end, killed the girl I’d once been. It left me broken, stuck, unable to move forward. And no matter how many years had passed, I was unable to let go.
And my heart broke with her. I felt so bad, but at the same time I also understood that Cage was too young and hadn’t yet gotten his “youth” out of his system. Tegan is a mouthy one. And she takes the hurt and frustration of not being able to have the man she loves out on him at every turn. “You’re still feelin’ me, Teacup, and you’re still pissed that I fuckin’ stiffed you all those years ago, ain’t you?”
Yes she was feelin’ him and pissed as hell…
And we know from the previous books that many years pass between then and now. And it would be so unlike Madeline if she gave these two each other quickly from the beginning. No, like I said they had to suffer, and let more time pass before they could really be honest about their feelings for one another.“Just say it,” he muttered. “Tell me the fuckin’ truth for once. Tell me you fuckin’ love me, babe.”
Their chemistry was passionate, and primal full of raw intensity.“Take it,” he growled, jerking his hips up hard. “Fuckin’ take it, Teacup.”
Yeah, Cage has a way with words, just like his dad ;)
And then there was Dirty… Madeline did us “dirty
” giving us him—I mean WTF!?! I have met many messed up characters before but Dirty takes the cake. I won’t divulge why, but just know you will be shocked. Then appalled. Then
thinking you are crazy because you fall for him right along with Ellie. This is how I know Mrs. Sheehan is a genius, because I know I should not like Dirty, in fact I should HATE him
. But I just couldn’t help it… Gah!!! He was a woman’s worst nightmare— beautiful on the outside, ravaged on the inside. A deadly combination.
I just want to go on and on about this story, but I can’t do that to you—you have to read it ;) I mean I highlighted so much of this book that I think more is highlighted than not. The prologue alone knocked my freakin’ socks off, and the epilogue was no different. I was freaking out telling my sister (who also loves this series) how amazing it is and that she has to read it RIGHT NOW! Seriously you do too—that is if you have read the first two
Overall, I LOVED this book and this series so much that I may have a FanGirl crush on the author. I mean I really have no idea where she comes up with this shit, and how she makes me love it so damn much, but I do. Thanks again Madeline for rocking my freakin world! It had always been him. It would only ever be him.
