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.

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

I really have no idea how to even start with this review. It’s so hard to go into detail without giving too much away. Believe me. The title couldn’t be more fitting. I seriously ‘underestimated’ this book, and was so unexpected.
First off... Heed the warning at the beginning. ‘Underestimated’ is not your usual HEA romance. It’s dark, gritty, raw and very emotional.
Six years... Six years, Morgan has been living in hell with Drew. Her husband. The man she was forced to marry at the age of 18. She doesn’t love him; she hates him and can’t stand the thought of living in the same house as him any longer. So with the help of a friendly maid and very careful planning, she makes her escape.
“Who walks away from their life to start all over? Maybe walk isn’t the best word choice. When I say all over, I truly mean all over. My entire existence had been nothing but an illusion.”
“My name is no longer Morgan Kelley.”
“Now, my name is Riley Murphy.”
Moving to the small, quaint town of Misty Bay, Maine, Morgan/Riley can finally start rebuilding herself a new life. She has a house, a job and very quickly starts making friends. She’s finally happy.
For two years Riley lives her new carefree and safe life. Her friends have been amazing, and she even starts to fall in love with the town sheriff Dawson.
“I was by no means looking for love when I ran from Drew, but that was exactly what I found. I couldn’t imagine loving anyone as much as I loved Dawson Bade. I had never felt the security that I felt with him, and I knew that he truly loved me.”
He made her feel loved, protected, cherished.
“You’re safe with me. I’m not going to let anything happen to you, Ry,” he promised.”
Life couldn’t be more perfect for her....until it isn’t.
While on a trip for work, Riley/Morgan has an accident, which results in her getting back with Drew, her husband she escaped from in the first place.
Only this time it's different. He's not the same person she left. There's a new side to him showing through and Morgan finds herself falling in love with him.
But what does that mean for Dawson? She still loves him.
Who will she pick?....
Dawson- who she knows will never hurt her. Loves her and just want to protect her.
Or Drew- Who hurt her and used her for the first six years of marriage. But, has also shown her a new side to him. The side that is caring, gentle, and loving.
“I want you to do what you want, and what you think is best for you, but you remember one thing. I want you more than I have ever wanted anything in my life. I want to spend the rest of my life making up for our first six years together.” ~ Drew.
The author takes you on such a rollercoaster journey with Morgan from start to finish. It’s full of twists and turns that will keep you reading until the very last page, and just when you think you’ve got it figured out, she throws in another surprise to throw you off kilter.
I loved the story.
I loved the characters.
And I can’t wait to get my hands on ‘Underestimated Too’. I’m looking forward to getting in Drew’s head!!!
Writing is more than a passion for me. I write adult books, romance and erotica. I did recently try my hand at a young adult romance, but because of the gutter that my mind seems to fall into. It quickly went into rated R mode. I reside in Ohio. I love living in Ohio, except maybe the cold winters, and the snow, well maybe the hot summers too. Ah hell, I hate Ohio.
I love to push my limits in writing, fuel the senses and emotions of my readers. I have some great supporters and love them all dearly.
