Review: Unbeautifully by Madeline Sheehan

Warning: This is not a story about fate or destiny. This is a story about pain, sorrow, and suffering. This is an impulsive whirlwind romance between two lovers that are not meant to be together. Theirs is not a world with sunshine and roses. Instead, their love blossoms in a secret world full of crime, violence, and death. Their story is about what can be born from nightmares. 

Danielle “Danny” West is the daughter of Deuce West, President of the Hell’s Horsemen Motorcycle Club. A sweet and beautiful girl, she loses her way, searching for things that are always out of her reach. Erik “Ripper” Jacobs is the Sergeant of Arms in the Hell’s Horsemen. Once a man who always had a smile on his face, his life takes a turn for the worst when a tragedy befalls him, leaving him scarred and broken. During a midsummer night, Danny and Ripper’s paths cross, forever changing their lives. Hastily, their lust turns to love until another tragedy forces them apart. On a journey that is marred with ugliness and chaos, Danny and Ripper must discover if their unforeseen connection can find the beauty in their world. 

This is Danny and Ripper’s story. 

Everything has beauty. Even the ugly. Especially the ugly.
Because without ugly, there would be no beauty.

Bitch. Can. Write.

This is Ripper and Danny’s story.

It’s not paved in yellow gold, butterflies or roses, but is told in a raw all-consuming way that drags you into this crazy-ass biker world and has you dreading turning that last page.

Ripper is real.  He’s a man whose past follows him every time he looks in the mirror.  He’s scarred…badly scarred.  His face mutilated by an ass of a man who got his kicks doing it.  But the scars on the outside are about as thick as the ones on the inside.

“Baby,” he said gruffly. “Man like me got no business with a girl like you.  You’re nothin’ but fuckin’ beauty and I’m a whole lot of fuckin’ ugly who’s already halfway to hell.”

Danny is the biker princess being Deuce’s baby girl.  She grew up in the MC and knows her way around knowing what these bikers are like.  Ripper is also older, by more than a decade, but these two together send shockwaves and explosions off in their path.

They are raw, hungry and mouthwatering all over each other. 

Now, this is a motorcycle club and dating the biker princess is one thing, but dating the biker princess behind the biker king and clubs back…….well that’s a whole nother story.

Add to that, crazy ex’s, club drama, guns, ‘runs’, fights, alcohol and business gone bad,  you get a petri dish of wonderfulness that is Madeline. 

Oh how I loved this…. It may have been Ripper and Danny’s story, but we also get a continuation of Deuce and Eva’s story!

“You’re my reason, Deuce,” she whispered through her tears. “You always have been.” (EVA)

We learn the fallout from that fateful night in Undeniable and the repercussions of it.  It was hard gut wrenching and pissed me off.  I LOVE Eva’s backbone to stand up to such an alpha male and put his ass in his place. 

We also get to see a special moment biker style!  LOVED THAT!

Overall, HIGHLY recommend reading this book!  Madeline is an auto-buy for me. If you love alpha males, who ride bikes, stand up for what they believe in, fight for what they want, demand respect and love with every fiber of their being, you will love the Undeniable series.

Favorite Quote:        “Perspective is a bitch when it slaps you in the face, after the fact.”
