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…




In what was a truly fascinating and unique story, Unloved was a raw and wild tale of love written in an unusual setting that consistently furthered the plot. With the main male character prepared to live a long, lonely life in the backwoods due to fear of his genetics, I wasn’t expecting how deeply pensive and full of mystery this story became just on that issue alone, let alone how much deeper it became with the romance aspect. Both Cassidy and Brynn were strong-willed characters, willing to go to drastic lengths to either protect or carry out what they had planned to accomplish, and yet underneath their individual grief and hardheadedness was two people desperate for and deprived of human contact. Watching them find their piece of that within one another was beautifully inspiring.

Regnery brilliantly captured the innocence and purity of Cassidy, and yet so easily mired it in deeply-rooted fear and self-loathing that it was altogether too easy to get into his mindset. The paradoxical nature of his character was starkly vivid, something that made him both mysterious and inviting. When Brynn and Cassidy came together, there was such power to the connection that arose between them, even under their dire circumstances, that it was impossible not to be swept away with them and their sensual love story. I went into Unloved expecting a love story, and while it delivered and presented a great one, it also penned a powerful character arc that will continue to stick with you.
