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+**

Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF

Unloved’s cover is a thing of beauty with a shadow of tragedy. A white background with what looks like blood splatter surrounds a bleeding heart and this to me tells any reader exactly what this book is all about. One broken heart and one broken soul. Boundaries and comfort levels are tested and the truth isn’t all that it appears to be. Cassidy Porter lives in the dark alone because of his father’s sins, raised to believe that he must pay for those sins by living a certain way.

‘There are no guarantees.  Only a monster would gamble someone else’s life when the possibility of a tragic outcome is so much higher than average.’

Brynn Cadogan couldn’t allow herself to move on from the pain and anguish of her past. Until one day she decides she must travel in order to say goodbye and move on.

The author is well gifted in weaving a story. Leading the reader down the winding path to the conclusion, throwing spanners in the works whenever and wherever she feels they are needed. Turning the entire reader’s belief system upside down and thrusting the true reality out there for all to see. Katy has this gift in her writing where the characters come across as real people. Real people suffering through some of the darkest days of their lives. In Unloved, she has managed to pull off what I thought was impossible; make her characters so real I couldn’t discern the difference.

Cassidy is a man living underneath a cloud so dark it appears to be almost lifelike, writhing and slivering through the darkness. Every time I heard him talk about himself, my heart would bleed. Everybody he had ever known had in one form or another, moulded and pushed him into becoming the man he was. A man who had had to develop such heart breaking habits just so that he didn’t really feel alone. Annie always comes to mind when I think about his habits. Cassidy is a man who feels so little about himself, and yet he shows such compassion to any other life form. It came across to me that at times he just wished he was invisible. His absolute aversion to having a relationship or forbid the forbidden, kids are so extreme. It’s his red button, the one thing that brings out the blind panic.

Brynn is a woman who for a long time was in pain and hurting. Unable to let go of the past and move on, that is until she is rescued by Cassidy. She trusts him almost immediately and allows him to care for her at her most vulnerable. Brynn’s curiosity is one of the things about Unloved that intrigued me. He’s your typical person, never accepting anything at face value and always asking questions, much to Cassidy’s resistance.

‘I am so in love with him, but we were also friends.

I wish he had trusted me.

I wish he had known that he could trust me, because I saw the colours of his heart and I loved them all.’

This author always creates characters that are relatable. Even Brynn’s parents were people I would do anything to be able to share a cup of coffee with. Any relationship takes growth and building blocks from the foundation up. One thing this author never fails to do is to make the build-up believable and highly anticipated. I love the back and forth and the will they, won’t they. It never fails to make my heart beat faster and to cause me to bite my fingernails in frustration.

‘I love her.

I will love her until the sky falls.

Until the sun and the moon fail to rise.

Until Katahdin crumbles.

I will love her forever.’

There are so many things I could say about Unloved, but all of them come to mind as spoilers. I’m still moved by the last ten percent. Even now, and I finished it yesterday, I just can’t seem to shake this book off. The author is one of a small group of authors I automatically one-click without even reading the blurb. Unloved was a book that dipped its toe into several genres and was done marvellously. Unloved is the best book I have read this year and if I could, I’d be awarding this amazing book 6 stars! Well done Ms Regnery! In my humble opinion, this is your best book to date and you hit this one out of the ball park.

‘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…unloved.’

About the Author:

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

KFF’s 5 ★ Review

Sharp and stylish. That is exactly how I would describe Sand’s writing. And to say I was impressed with her short debut story which whetted my appetite for more, would be putting it mildly. Before talking about the book, I really have to mention the gorgeous cover of Taylor. Everything about it is perfect. Not only are the hues kind on the eye, but it also inspires freedom. So once the book was opened, I soon realised that this is exactly what Taylor’s tale is about. Freedom from what you may ask! That is for you to discover.  

This reader was drawn into the life of the Taylor in such a way that my only thought was for her wellbeing, her peace of mind. Others close to home are involved and her compassion towards them has no boundaries. Past happenings are complicated and in all its seriousness, kept me stuck to the pages. Hers is not a lovey-dovey story, it didn’t bring out an oohing-aahing effect in me, either. Its blunt narrative made me think and that is exactly what I like. I don’t want to have the plot served to me on a silver plate. I want questions to be answered, I want the element of suspense to surprise me. Whether or not, in all its glorious and titillating circumstance, the author is going to be able to carry out what she’s put in motion, remains to be seen but I really can’t wait for her next offering.  

My inclination to talk about the secondary characters who are crucial to the foundation of what I can imagine is to come, might be letting on without reason. I might even be way off since I have no idea how the story will pan out. That being said, Ryder took me by storm! Personified gorgeousness aren’t even the right words to portray the kind of person he is! I want more of him. Will the author pretty please me?

Taylor’s father. I’d sign up on the bottom line to have one like him. Her sister with pin in hand forms a beginning that one can only imagine, has an end. Then again, the whys and wherefores remain to be divulged. One small observation. I would have like more banter but in my opinion, the pros outweigh the cons since I have no idea how Taylor’s story will develop. What I can say is this: ‘Keep up the good work you’ve done thus far Sands. Bravo!’

“Stop!” I cried, grabbing my sister’s arm and dragging her to the living room. I pushed her in front of the fireplace, pointing at the map spread across the wall, “we do it this way, always,” I reminded her.

Laura tried to twist away from me, I held my grip on her wrist firmer as she shook her head at me. “I don’t care where, Taylor, I need away from here,” she griped irately, “I want to be on my own, be me. Don’t you get it?” I blinked at her, finally processing what she was saying to me.

I pushed her closer to the map. “Pick your pin.” We stood shoulder to shoulder yet couldn’t have been further apart, she didn’t move an inch. “Pick your fucking pin,” I spat out. With shaking fingers, she plucked the pink pin from the corner of the map. Pink was my colour. I took my hand from her wrist and entwined my fingers with hers as I picked the blue pin. “Together,” I breathed. Laura gulped and nodded at the same time, squeezing my fingers. “One, two, three…” I closed my eyes, having faith she would too, then pushed my pin into the wall. It was tradition, always the way we decided our next hiding place. Some had been pleasant, most not. She was right; it was time to leave and I trusted Laura’s pin to take us home. I forced down the hurt I experienced at having to cut those proverbial apron strings. Dubious as I was, Laura needed this and I couldn’t take it from her, she’d lost so much already. It was time to live again, time for us to take our lives back.

I let go of her hand, opening my eyes to see immediately my pin was a lost cause. An expanse of nothing surrounded it, the blue pin floated in the middle of nowhere, a little like us for the last eight years. I scanned for Laura’s pin and found it on top of a town. I looked at her, smiling, but she was staring at the floor, not an ounce of emotion coming from her.
