After reading Undeniable, I was certain of what to expect with Unbeautifully. I thought I would get a similar story as Undeniable with two different characters. Boy was I wrong!
First off, I was excited to read on and learn that this was not the sole story of two people in love, ergo Danny & Ripper, but it actually continued on the story of Deuce & Eva from Undeniable. Their story was told without sugar coating, in a naked and grueling way; the way I would expect it to be in real life. It was not a candy and roses story, but full of sorrow, heartache, and pain. The story of Deuce and Eva was important to fully understand the story of Danny and Ripper. It blended well and still managed to shock me, catch me off guard, and throw me around like a bitch at an MC club!
Unbeautifully was told in 4 points of view, Ripper, Danny, Eva, & Deuce. Madeline Sheehan is one crazy woman to try it, but she succeeded. The different POVs added to the story, created a better understanding, and allowed me to feel each and every character; to build an understanding with them, hurt with them, feel with them. It was pretty fucking awesome!
In the end, you have a great story of two relationships and see how crazy Frankie did a number on so many people. He physically scarred Ripper, but psychologically scarred Eva and Deuce, ultimately having an effect on Danny. I will definitely read this book again and cannot wait for the next story in this series.
“I don’t believe in fate. I firmly believe that life is what you make of it, that life will react to your actions, and that your final destination has nothing to do with the choices you make along the way. With one exception. Love. There are no rules when it comes to love.”
“…Everything has beauty. Even the ugly. Especially the ugly. Because without the ugly, there would be no beauty.”
And my favorite quote:
“Cox!” Kami screamed, stalking into the room. “Shut your stupid Mexican mouth!”
Cox glared at her. “Bitch, I’m Puerto Rican!”
“Whatever. Don’t you have some lawns to mow?”
I’m Puerto fuckin’ Rican!”
Hilarious! And, don’t expect any fillers. This story is one ride after another after another.
