Warning! This is not your everyday fall in love romance. This book contains disturbing situations, strong language, graphic, sexual content, some forced, some not. If it's your happily ever after love story that you are looking for, you should probably move on. If you are up for the ride, stick around and it may just turn into a love story after all.
Morgan starts her life in a bad situation, she doesn't really know what she wants out of life. She's never had anyone to look up to, or help guide her in the right direction. She had it rough, and never dreamed that it could get worse, however she finds that it can, and does.
She learns what real hell is when she meets the husband that she doesn't want to marry, but isn't given a choice. Can she escape? She can, and does only to wake up and find herself right back at square one
Wow. This book is amazing. It's hard to put into words the emotions this book brings out in you. It's dark and very graphical but just blows you away. I've read dark books before and this is by far, the best I have ever read.
There is a character called Derik that I should probably mention. He is part of Morgan's from when she suffered abuse from Drew. He also added to the abuse.
This could not be happening. It was like one of those movies that kept you on the end of your seat, waiting to see what happened. I went around the bus, and Derik was now right behind me. I shot back in front of the bus and took the next street to the right. I kept darting in and out of traffic, up and down different streets with Derik right on my tail.
I finally got out of the city enough to get some speed, still passing cars, illegally. I didn’t care. I would have loved for the cops to see me and stop me. They didn’t, and I was left to fend for myself. I was a few cars ahead of him when I came up on a sports car with the top down, full of young girls. They were yelling and having the time of their life, but they were driving too slowly. I knew I shouldn’t try it. I couldn’t see if anything was coming from the little knoll.
I darted around them, and I was right. I shouldn’t have done it. Neither I nor the city bus driver had time to react before my car was under his bumper. I don’t remember much after that. I could vaguely recall sirens, voices and the sound of a saw. I was hot. I was so hot, and I could smell smoke. Was the car on fire? Was I being cut out of the car? I didn’t know. I was drifting away. I felt my body becoming lighter and lighter as I floated into the dark.
I’m sorry, Dawson…
Jettie Woodruff is a practicing physician and has been a Civil War buff for decades. No. Not really, she is not a doctor nor is she a Civil War buff. She is however a goof-off and has a hard time being serious for too long.
She does enjoy a challenge when it comes to her writing. She feels as though she needs to pull every emotion possible from her readers. She wants you to be pissed off, questioning your sanity, depressed, happy, and hopefully turn your mind from wanting to cut the villain into tiny little pieces to loving him by the end of the book.
Underestimated was her first dark endeavor. It was a goal alongside of writing a series, a standalone romance, a young adult, which she can’t check that one off. She tried she really did, but her mind just doesn’t work outside the gutter and it quickly became rated X.
Jettie lives on 163 acres in a rural part of Ohio. She loves living in Ohio, except maybe the snow, and the long winters, maybe the hot summers too, Ah, hell, she hates Ohio. She does love the land and the solitude of the country. She just wishes it was in a geographically in a better part of the country.
Jettie has two grown children and one who will be eighteen in a matter of days. YES!!! She has also recently just had her first, cutest ever, most adorable, granddaughter in the whole world. Her oldest daughter just hit her with the news that she will be adding another grandchild to the family in February. Although she is sure she will fall in love with the little creature, she still can’t say the G word.
Jettie enjoys reading as much as she loves writing. She has way too many favorites to list, but one of her all-time favorites from years ago was the Casteel series from V.C. Andrews. One of her new favorites is C.J. Robert’s, Captive series. Reading it gave her that needed push that she required to say the hell with what people think and write Underestimated.
By day Jettie is wearing business attire and managing a mattress store. By night she is in front of a keyboard or her Kindle, wearing, well let’s not go there. Underestimated was her fifth book published. The first one was just shy of a disaster, not that it was a bad book. People liked it. She just knew nothing about it, no revising, no editing, just a spur of the moment…. “Oh, I wrote a book, lets publish it.” Train wreck and a half. Her Star series was one of her favorites and is held dear to her heart. She is now working on an adult romance that should be live around the end of August, early September. She can’t seem to stay focused on it at the moment, due to a much needed Bahamas vacation coming up with Adam Levine’s walking around half naked, buying her drinks.

The only person poetry-loving Cali Monroe hates more than herself is Logan Waters, the geeky kid who lives in the dorm building next to hers. Ever since Cali's parents told her she would amount to nothing, she has felt entirely inadequate. Friendless and alone, she takes on the mean girl role in hopes it will make her feel better--and Logan serves as the perfect target. He infuriates her with his obnoxiously long lashes, his all too perfect dimpled smile, and his complete lack of personality outside of his intelligence. It doesn't hurt that he's part of the reason her brother is dead, either. So Cali hates him, and he returns the favor. Thus, their prank-filled, insult-driven rivalry is born, and torturing Logan quickly becomes the highlight of her life. But when Cali's parents set them up on a blind date, she begins to realize Logan might not be as boring as she always thought. He shares her love of poetry, takes a sadistic pleasure in making fun of crepes, and he makes her blush when he calls her smile pretty. And hey, maybe those long lashes of his aren't that obnoxious after all… Two Roads is New Adult Romance about finding love, standing out, and learning to embrace who you are. It contains some language and mild sexual content.

Will this man help Gwen become a stronger woman or will he completely destroy her?
**This is an erotic book with F/F, F/F/M, M/F situations and not intended for people under 18**
This book was one that you either hated or you loved it! At first, I thought I was going to hate it. It was not at all what I had been expecting. The more I read the more I was pulled in though. The characters really got to me and by the end of the book I couldn’t even decide if I liked this book. I waited a day before even trying to write this review to gather my thoughts. In the end I somehow grew to love this book. It’s a very twisted book and sad even. We see a character go through...more
This book was one that you either hated or you loved it! At first, I thought I was going to hate it. It was not at all what I had been expecting. The more I read the more I was pulled in though. The characters really got to me and by the end of the book I couldn’t even decide if I liked this book. I waited a day before even trying to write this review to gather my thoughts. In the end I somehow grew to love this book. It’s a very twisted book and sad even. We see a character go through a lot of hurt and pain in her life to finally find happiness but at the end of the book her world is shaken up completely.
Yearning Devotion is the first book to ever make me really have to think about how I felt after reading it. There are a lot of things in the book that I found a bit odd I guess you could say, but yet gave me a perspective that some things are not always perfect in life and that means books as well.
We meet Gwen who has been through her fair share of hurt in her life. She has had McKayla in her life for 10 years and without her she probably wouldn’t be where she was. Her life seems to be going pretty well until suddenly Cole walks into it and shakes everything up. Gwen hates men and doesn’t trust them at all but Cole shows her that she can enjoy a man, trust a man, and even go as far as loving one.
It’s a twisted love triangle and things seem to be going good by the end of the book until an unexpected person comes back into Gwen’s life and really makes everything spin out of control and that it where we are left with this book. Must say, I am not a fan of cliffhangers but it does guarantee that book number two will be read by me. I have to find out what will happen with Gwen and her past, as well as will she ever pick one lover.
Overall, this was by far a very interesting story. It had lots of up’s and downs, right along with so many unexpected twists. I advise that if you read this story to have an open mind, and wait a day before jumping into the conclusion if you liked it or not. In the end I’ve come to the conclusion that I loved this book!!
Twenty-three year old Marissa Chase, and soon to be college graduate, has everything going for her: wonderful friends, a lucrative degree, and a chance to explore the world. What made it even better – or so she thought – was when her path crossed with the alluring Alec Holden. Unable to stay away from him, Marissa experiences a love like no other, and falls into his world of passion and intrigue. However, things begin to shift when this path takes a deadly turn.
Her trust is put to the test when hidden dangers unfold before her, revealing secrets that have been buried for years. Secrets that were meant to stay hidden. Murder, lies, and betrayal … will Marissa figure it all out in time and escape with her life intact, or will she be too late and fall into the trap of deception?
I read this book with no expectations or even knowing what I was in for since I decided to read the book before looking at the synopsis. I have to say though, that I really did enjoy reading this story. It was suspenseful, fun, and passionate.
Marissa has just broken up with her boyfriend who she has been dating for years and has decided that she is going to have fun with her best friends before graduating college and moving to Wilmington, NC. Things change for her though when she finally meets her neighbor, the sexy and mysterious Alec. She decided to take things slow and just enjoy the time she can spend with him. Marissa learns secrets about Alec that she would have never though possible, but his secrets lead her to lies and deception as well as danger.
We get to see how the love between the two grows but as well as seeing what having no trust can do to a relationship. This is a story that will make you want to not stop reading until you discover ever lie, and secret that there is.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to others. I look forward to reading more books by L.P. Dover in the future and hope that everyone enjoys this book as much as I did.
4 great stars!!
