Blog Tour: Katy Regnery's "Unloved."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be part of the Blog Tour for Katy Regnery's "Unloved."


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...


**NOTE: This book is intended for readers 18+**

Review: Jo 

"Live quiet, and no matter what happens inside of you, 
you won't never be able to hurt someone, Cassidy."

I've spent so much time thinking about what to write in this review. For me "Unloved" was not what I had expected and there were things about the book that I didn't like, but there was also parts that I enjoyed and I know that it has had so many great reviews so I would hate to put readers off by sharing my opinion. This clearly is a novel that you should read for yourself and make up your own mind on what you truly think of Brynn and Cassidy's story. When I first read the synopsis to this book, I couldn't wait to get started. It sounded like a book that would capture my heart and leave me a big emotional mess. Unfortunately, the story of Brynn and Cassidy didn't quite grip me in the way that I had hoped. Don't get me wrong, I did like this book, and there were moments that piqued my interest, but I felt overall that this novel was more of a tender love story. 

"I saw the colors of his heart and I loved them all." 

I loved the premise of this story. Brynn and Cassidy were two people who had both suffered in their past and had back stories that broke my heart, especially Cassidy. I had mixed feelings about Cassidy. My heart really went out to him for the life that he had been dealt.  I completely understood his innocence because of how he been brought up but there were a few things that completely put me off him. I don't want to go into details because of spoilers, but there was a few elements of Cassidy that really didn't appeal to me. As book boyfriends go, sadly Cassidy wasn't the guy for me. 

I enjoyed the sweet development of Brynn and Cassidy's relationship. The pair shared so much innocence between them that they both seemed a lot younger than their years, so at times I felt that I was reading YA. Brynn and Cassidy's story continued throughout most of the book to be a slow burner and I did find my interest wavering at times, however there were also parts that I enjoyed, especially during the later chapters with a few twists that left me feeling shocked and confused. I felt that this part of the story picked up pace and left me wanting to know more, but for the most part I felt that this was a more of a gentle love story between Brynn and Cassidy. 

Another thing I did love about this book was the writing. Written in duel POV, Katy's words were just beautiful and I felt myself swooning over some of the dialogue that Cassidy spoke to Brynn.  There was a few moments where he melted by heart. 

"She is, and always will forever be, my life's greatest treasure.
 Because of her, I am loved."

"Unloved" gets 3.5-4 hearts from me.
