I think there are two types of readers for this series: you either hate it or you love it. No middle ground. I understand why some readers hate UnDeniable and UnBeautifully, because Madeline Sheehan forces the reader to make a choice. Most of us envision the good guy/hero as law abiding and almost perfect. That doesn't work with this series because these characters don't live in a 4b/2ba house, with an accountant father, and the mother is a Girl Scout volunteer. These characters were raised in a violent world, one without stay-at-home moms and where fathers make their living transporting drugs and guns. So when you begin reading these books, you have to decide whether to cross the line; do you remain in your world with your safe assumptions and defined rules about love and life, or do you cross over the line into their world and leave all of your rules and judgment behind? If the reader decides not to cross, he/she isn't going to enjoy these books. The ones that jump over are rewarded with a story weaved with characters unlike any that I've encountered before. I must warn you though, that once you cross over, you can't go back to the way you were before. The books and characters that you love before now become one dimensional and boring. The book boyfriends that caused you to swoon (you know the educated, makes a billion dollars, and dresses his lover in Prada and Jimmy Choos), that book boyfriend will feel like a middle school crush. You will no longer be looking at the man dressed in the Armani suit, your eyes will be focused on the man in a cut and wearing leather. I remember when I had to decide in UnD whether to cross over, I looked up and there was Deuce staring at me from the other side, then he grinned, and I found myself hopping on the back of his bike and riding out the story with him. I never looked back.
Madeline Sheehan broke a bunch of rules with this series, she didn't give us a love story, she gave us a story. She didn't give us a hero/heroine/bad guy, she gave us many characters, characters that are flawed, and when I say flawed, they are ******-up flawed. Somehow Sheehan made their flaws and vulnerabilities appeal to the reader, the characters became even more desirable and loveable. This band of outlaws see their own flaws, and they don't stop trying to fix them. It isn't an immediate fix either, it takes Deuce years to get to a good place with Eva. Just when he passed one hurdle, I felt myself wincing again over another ***-up, and hoping that Eva didn't give up, or hoping that he didn't give up on Eva.
UnB is the story of Danny and Ripper, and like UnD, the book isn't only about the couple. Both books are weaved with different characters and we witness how the action of one can cause a ripple throughout all of their lives. Ripper has changed since his introduction in the first book, this is post-Frankie Ripper. The previous fun-hearted playboy is now saddled with scars and anger, lots of both. Ripper is still a member in Deuce's MC, but almost everything and/or everyone has changed somewhat since UnD. This book could have been titled "UnFrankie" or "Life After Frankie" because the after effects of that maniac is felt throughout this book. Even the characters that never met him, such as Danny, still feel the repercussions from Frankie's existence. But these characters are survivors, they may not be polished and refined, but they do what it takes to survive, and they find beauty in places where others cannot. This is what makes the characters so different than the ones in other books. Remember in the Crossfire novels when Eva said that she and Gideon needed each other like air and couldn't exist without each other, this isn't that kind of story. These characters don't cease to exist when they are abandoned by their lovers, they keep breathing, they don't throw in the towel, they try to fix themselves, and learn to forgive each other, and I'm referring not to just the couple, but also the brotherhood and the families. And those flaws that I keep mentioning, well those flaws, they become scars, and as Ripper explained, those scars tell the most amazing stories.

Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Danny and Ripper's story. Danny is the mc president's daughter, and Ripper is sent to pick her up from her disastrous prom. One thing led to another, and they end up spending the night together. Neither of them can deny the pull that they feel from that night, and they eventually give in and have a secret affair. There is some family and club drama, some hot sexy times, and a few sad and sweet moments too...and they get a HEA ending.
POV: This alternated between focusing on Danny, Ripper, Deuce, and Eva in 3rd person narrative. I did find it kind of odd that there was as much focus on Deuce and Eva as there was, but it worked somehow...
Overall Pace of Story: Good. I did skim very briefly during the club drama, but that is definitely a "just me" thing (because I always seem to do that with mc romances)! I thought it flowed well overall.
Instalove: Kind of. They connect instantly once they become physical, but I felt like it a was believable progression into stronger feelings.
H rating: 3.5 stars. Ripper. I felt really bad for his past trauma, and I liked the way he loved the h.
h rating: 3 stars. Danny. I liked her, but then I had BIG issues with how she handled the H's return and treated ZZ.
Sadness level: Low/moderate. I teared up a few times, but I never needed any tissues.
Heat level: Moderate. They have some hot chemistry and scenes, but not so much it takes away from the story.
Descriptive sex: Yes
OW/OM drama: Yes
Sex scene with OW or OM: Yes
Closure: This had a cute jump ahead epilogue with a HEA ending.
How I got it: I paid the $3.99 on Amazon.
