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.
Madeline Sheehan has done it again with another intense, emotional roller coaster novel and darker in Unbeautifully that had my stomach in knots. Be prepared to have some tissue aside for Unbeautfiully.

Not only has the after affect from Frankie (from Undeniable) left Ripper physically and mentally scarred but also left a huge affect on Danny and a much bigger affect on Eva and Deuce. Loved how we get to see how the incident with Frankie in Undeniable tore apart Eva and Deuce’s relationship and how they were able to re-patch their relationship. We get inside their heads and feel what they are feeling. There were times I wanted to bonk Deuce over the head for some of his actions. He was hurting and there were things he did that I for sure thought I was going to dislike him but then it turned out OK.
Since Ripper was tortured by Frankie he is dark, broken, with a chip on his shoulder and feels nothing until his one night with Danny. Now he is starting to feel things he thought he had buried deep down inside. She makes him feel whole again. The back flashes when he was being tortured broke my heart. They are very descriptive that at times did have to take a minute to recoup. Loved Ripper’s character right down to his sexy tattoos, dirty talking mouth, possessive, jealous, over protective, alpha male attitude. He believes Danny is beautiful, innocent and deserves better than a life of the MC.

Growing up with the MC that is only what Danny knows. She sees the beautiful inside Ripper and since their one night together that is all she can think about is him. Since the incident with Frankie left her dad (Deuce) emotionally and physically absent and now he is back in her life playing the father role but is broken and sad she hates him for it. Loved her character right down to her snippy attitude and loved that she can hold her own with ripper.
Loved Danny and Ripper together. The are perfect for each other in their own way. I think they connect because they can relate to each other because they were both affected by Frankie’s wrong doing in Undeniable. Their journey to happiness is sexy with some serious steam factor, serious bumps in their relationship that at times was not sure if they would get over some things.
Unbeautifully is another great read in the Undeniable series. Even though this series is dark, twisted, not faint for the heart. When in the mood for this type, I could seriously read these novels again and again with well written characters that are so real they jump off the pages that you feel what they are feeling. I can not wait for Cage and Tegen story in Unattainable (Undeniable #3).



  1. I have this one & cannot wait to read it! oh the thought of Deuce's daughter getting with one of his club members has me all excited!

    Rocking review Capri :)

    1. Thank you! I look forward to you review.

  2. Great review--really must try this serie, I've heard such good things about it, though it's definitely not a typical happy romance from what I hear. But that's okay--sometimes you need that kind of book anyway. ;)


  3. I read this one a while back, but have not written my review yet. UGH, so far behind.
    But I love Madeline's writing voice and her dark, yet very sexy heroes.


Hello Lovelies. Thank you for stopping by. I love to hear from you.
