Misunderstood (Death Dwellers MC #2) by Kathryn Kelly is a dirty, gritty love story.
John Donovan has been left in charge of the Death Dwellers' MC while the club president is on his honeymoon. With six days left till Outlaw's return and smooth sailing so far, trouble suddenly bubbles up. As the clock ticks, he's determined to bring everything under control.
Kendall Miller, an attorney and the ex-girlfriend of another MC president, is in deep problems. When her little sister is taken by her ex, she needs to supply information to a man who is frantic for information on the highest ranking members of Johnnie's club. When she suddenly shows up at the clubhouse and arouses the suspicions of a very handsome blond biker, she finds herself being taken as his prisoner.
Evil is all around them. To save herself and her sister, Kendall has to rely on the man she betrayed. To save his club, Johnnie has to trust Kendall's story. Before it's too late. Because lives will be lost and hearts will be broken.
WARNING: This isn’t an easy or light read. Please be advised. The way to Johnnie’s and Kendall’s resolution involves death, violence, destruction, a sexual assault scene and suicide.
I loved the first book and the first novella in this series. See my reviews here. I was so excited for this next book. And while I enjoyed that same grit and intense moments of the first two parts of the series, this book lacked the romance-the connection-between the two main characters. Misunderstood has the drama but spends more time furthering the series plot rather than focusing on the relationship-building. I just never felt the love build between Johnnie and Kendall.
If you like MC Romances, this series should be added to your list of books to read... just be sure to read the books in order. A lot happens in this book that readers won't understand if they haven't read the others first. There's also lots of naughty language and authentic "mis-grammar" but it makes the story that much more real despite being a bit more difficult to read quickly.
