Book Review: Unloved by Katy Regnery 5


by Katy Regnery


The sins of the father. The burden of the son.

Unloved by Katy Regnery is LIVE!

B & N

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…

My Rating:


Favorite Quotes:


Her eyes are the same green as ivy leaves after a rainfall. Deep and alive. Bright and unforgettable. The sort of green that heralds spring and promises rebirth. Glorious, vibrant… I wish I was the sun so I could shine down on her, so I could examine every peak and valley of her face until I have it memorized and can recall it at any lonesome moment: the sad, beautiful, green-eyed girl from the forest.


I am not screaming for my past or my present. I am screaming for my future. I am screaming because I know I want it and someone is taking it away from me.


If I had ever met him before, I wouldn’t have forgotten him. Why? Because his eyes are unforgettable, otherworldly. Surrounded by long, thick lashes that curl up at the ends, his left eye is green and his right eye is blue.


You are . . . the greatest . . . treasure . . . of my entire life.



My Review:


Ms. Regnery’s emotive and heart-rending storyline turned me inside out and then it wrecked me. My heart was squeezed, battered, and bruised, but as always with Ms. Regnery’s captivating tales, it concluded with a satisfying HEA, but not without some major plot twists and gut-wrenching events. I adored these compelling and endearing characters and was engaged and intrigued by their poignant and transformative story from beginning to end. Ms. Regnery’s superb and descriptive writing has a cinematic quality that was well-crafted and thoughtfully and vividly detailed with no annoying loose threads to pluck at my brain later.






About the Author:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

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. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

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.

    Great review! This does seem like an emotional read with family dynamics like this.

    Great review. This wouldn’t normally be my type of book but the original sounding background to the characters initial isolation has piqued my interest.

    That cover is beautiful.
    “with no annoying loose threads to pluck at my brain later.”
    I can’t even tell you how many hours of sleep I’ve lost thinking about loose ends. I might read this book just for that.
