Misled book 1 and Misappropriate Death Dwellers' MC, Book #1.5 Kathryn Kelly.... review by Dawn



Blurb
He deals in a world of violence, sex, drugs, and crudity. As president of the Death Dwellers' Motorcycle Club, Christopher "Outlaw" Caldwell presides over a club in chaos after the death of their longtime president and his mentor, Joseph "Boss" Foy. 

Megan Foy runs from her abusive stepfather, hoping for her daddy's intervention to save her and get her terrified mother away before it's too late. Only problem is, she soon discovers her beloved daddy is dead and the man who killed him is the man she's falling in love with. 



As you all know I am a huge fan of all things MC. So when this little ditty came across my radar I had to read it. Well it lived up to the MC hype...
It's gritty, raw, drama filled, intense, and sometimes even sweet. BUT, I could not get past the innocence of our leading lady Megan "Meggie"Foy. 
She was abused by her step-father and chose to run back to her father, Joe "Boss" Foy, Prez of the Death Swellers' MC. She is homeless living on the street for around a month before she gets back to the MC. Events unfold that Megan is unaware of and she is taken in by the new Prez, Christopher "Outlaw'Caldwell.
He is dangerous and unapologetic for most everything he has done or will do. He is the product of his mothers rape and hates his last name, the name his grandparents(who are assholes) demanded his mother give him. He loves his mother and sisters and they love him, they just HATE his lifestyle! 

He knows exactly who Meggie is as soon as he see those blue eyes and is taken to her immediately. I was not bothered by the age difference 18 and almost 33...egh whatever. 
There is alot of sex and violence and that is to be expected with this genera. I am not sure why it was necessary to make them sound like a bunch of illiterate thugs. I mean not all MC's are full of high school drop outs. I also was kind of like "WTF?" when Outlaw pretty much demanded "spoiler alert" he get Meggie pregnant, basically because he deemed her "good enough" to carry his child and she was all for it... 

Situations arise and Meggie finds out she has a brother and he is not the nicest of people. One thing leads to another she is kidnapped, rescued and pregnant, to sum it up for you.   
I wont say I didn't like this book, there were just parts that I didn't care for. The saving grace for me was the epilogue. I felt it showed alot of growth between Christopher and Megan and I was happy to see that. 
I am giving Misled 3.5 clocks.





Missappropriate 
book 1.5 in the Death Dwellers MC series



~Blurb
Megan Foy is finally getting the big wedding she's dreamed of. With her new child and the affection of the brothers of the Death Dwellers' MC, her life is settling down. However, a new threat rides into town and targets Christopher "Outlaw" Caldwell, forcing him to reevaluate his life once more and endangering everyone. Most of all, it threatens Meggie's newfound peace.~


Ok don't be fooled, this is pretty much a full length story! 
I do not want to tell you exactly where the story picks up because it would spoil Misled for you.
Christopher "Outlaw" Caldwell and Magen Foy have become parents to a baby boy and he is the light of their lives. 
Her Mother has escaped her molester father and has come to the club for protection. Now that woman can get on your nerves! I get it she was abused and treated poorly for many years but her lack of maternal instinct is appalling . I hated her... there I said it, but I don't feel bad Outlaw can't stand her and Meggie, can barely tolerate her.

I was really happy this this installment in the series, it was so much better! There is still A LOT of gritty things that go down and poor Meggie and Outlaw are thrown into intense drama pretty much from the get go. 
Trouble comes to town and lands in the seat right next to Megan. Oh high alert she informs the MC and the events that unravel are ones of epic portions.
I really like this story. I like that we had a begging and ending. I am not sure there are going to be other books in this series, ( I should really look into that) I would like to see Megan's friends come to town and get involved with the club, being that they are judgmental as hell. I want to see how the twists of Outlaws sisters pan out.  There is alot of room here for more stories, and I am stoked about it.

I am giving MIssappropriate 1.5, 4 clocks. Review based on ARC copy
