Warning: This is not a conventional or predictable love story. It involves one woman and two men bound by a love so destructive it spans two decades, pitting brother against brother, and shattering the lives of those touched by it.
Dorothy Kelley is a born romantic, searching for her prince. Instead she finds herself pregnant at fifteen, and a in a loveless marriage by the tender age of eighteen.
Then hope comes riding into her life on a motorcycle and within weeks, Jason “Jase” Brady, a member of the Hell’s Horsemen motorcycle club, sweeps Dorothy off her feet.
But nothing is ever simple for Dorothy. Jase is married with children. And as Dorothy patiently waits for Jase to give her the happily-ever-after she’s been dreaming about, James “Hawk” Young, a member of the Hell’s Horsemen with secrets of his own, sees an opening into Dorothy’s life and takes it.
Carrying on two secret affairs is no easy feat. As Dorothy tries to dig herself out of the mess she’s created, covering one mistake with another, tragedy strikes, nearly costing Dorothy her life and that of her unborn son.
What follows is a long and painful journey of self-discovery and forgiveness, as Dorothy comes to realize that home was exactly where she’d left it, and the love she’d forever craved had always been within her reach.
This is the story of Dorothy, Jase, and Hawk.
We are all born pure; it is our journey that burdens us and leads us astray. Our mistakes that beat us down and cover us in guilt and shame, burying us a little more with each passing hardship. It is up to us to dig ourselves out, to come to terms with our faults, to embrace not only our imperfections but those of the ones we love, and to once again find the path we strayed from.

Jase, Dorothy & Hawk!!
**Do not read unless you've read the previous books. SPOILERS BELOW**
Jase found himself pinned up against the elevator by his throat.
"Do the math, asshole, Hawk hissed. "Nine, fuckin' months ago, where the fuck were you?"
"No," Jase whispered. "No, she wouldn't-"
"No? Brother, yes. She's been comin' to me for years, crying' about you. And if you're still havin' doubts, I know for a fact you were usin' protection with her, and me, I wasn't even tryin' to safeguard my shit. I blew my load inside her every fuckin' time, know why? Because," Hawk growled. "I was tryin' to knock her up. Wanna know why? Because I was tryin' to get her the fuck away from you!" ~ Excerpt from Unbeautifully (Book #2)
Ever since I read the above excerpt from Unbeautifully back in May 2013, I’ve wanted this story…desperately. Can you blame me? Come on! If you’ve followed this series, you know how epic that moment was. Who would’ve thought? Our sweet Dorothy, who is crazy in love with the married Jase, but forever waiting for him to get his head out of his ass and finally divorce his wife. This same Dorothy also slept with Hawk and was carrying his child.
HOLY. MOTHER. FUCKING. SHIT! I couldn’t wait to read this story. I grabbed it immediately.
But the girl I’d been never would have married a man she didn’t love, she never would have taken up with a married a man to fill a void inside herself. I was no longer that girl, filled with dreams of love. I was a woman now, whose mistakes and circumstances had forced her down a very different path. Who had time and time again chosen the wrong direction.
If you’ve been following the series, we all know what’s going on with Dorothy, Jase & Hawk.
Dorothy ~ The trauma she faced when she was shot in the head by Jase’s wife, not only caused her to lose her memory, but pretty much left her wanting nothing to do with the MC. She fled the MC and moved to San Francisco to raise her son, Christopher.
Jase ~ His wife arrested for attempted murder, while his kids want nothing to do with him. To top it all off, Dorothy, the one woman he loves, but never enough to leave his wife for, leaves. No wonder he drinks to numb all the pain.
Hawk ~ Left the MC and went Nomad. Visits Dorothy and his son as often as possible. Though Dorothy wants nothing to do with him, he still longs to be with her.
There was only one who could steal your soul, that untouchable place inside you that existed only in your mind, that warmed and cooled, fluttered and shook without rhyme or reason, and make it theirs forever. Someone who could take your breath away with just one look
So who will Dorothy chose? You find out pretty quickly when you read this book, and I for one, couldn’t agree more with her choice. But that’s not where the story ends. Everyone is trying face their mistakes, learn and move forward with their lives.
Life was made up of moments, big ones and little, the good and bad, dark and light. We never remembered the gray, the times in between, but instead only the moments that had the ability to transform us in some way, affect us so completely that the memory would be forever etched upon who we were, who we are, and who we would become.
Oh, Madeline…I don’t know how you do it. First off, thank you for getting me out of my huge book funk. Secondly, thank you for never holding anything back and keeping me on my toes. I was so excited to see more of Deuce, Eva, Danny, Ripper & ZZ (which begs the question: Is ZZ redeemable?). But we also got a glimpse of Devin (Cox & Kami’s son) & Ivy (Deuce & Eva’s daughter). I want to mention these two because I have a feeling that they’ll be a huge part of what’s coming next. With that said, that ending??!!! HOLY. SHIT! That is all….
