 I love to get lost in a good book, especially ones that challenge and allow you to escape into another world!

Lover Reborn: A Novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood
J.R. Ward
Unbeautifully - Madeline Sheehan Deuce & Eva's story continues throughout Unbeautifully but the main focus is on Danny. The blurb for this book is a warning, it tells you that it's no fluffy read in so many words and you need to heed this advice!
Danny and Ripper are up against her father, his brothers and a code of rules that just get in the way of a girl's happiness! Everything that they all had tried to protect her from, she manages to find.
Unbeautifully starts with a confusing exchange between Danny, ZZ and Ripper, then it takes you a few years back to fill you in on the history of that exchange. Their journey takes off in directions I didn't want it to go in, I felt for The characters, just wanting it to be good for all of them, but it was not to be and that's what makes this such a fantastic journey. I hated the angst but loved being wrapped up in the story, so much that I didn't want to go to sleep, or to work, just wanted to sit and read!
Not one to read a book twice, but I think I'll go back and read the first two books in the series again, just before I get into the next book in this series. Did just that, thought I'd read the last couple of chapters of Undeniable before I started on Unbeautifully, then I flicked back a few more pages, then a few more and I thought what the heck, might as well just read it from the beginning! Loved reading it the second time just as much as the first :)
It's not all mayhem, angst and screwing, there's some wonderful moments when wisdom takes centre stage or that cheeky humour breaks an awkward moment! Must say, Danny's analogy using rain and rainstorms was brilliant......."Rain was a sure thing, you knew exactly what you were going to get: a clean and crisp, both sweet and refreshing experience.But rainstorms were unpredictable, they were riddled with surprises, messy and wet; they were something you had no control over.
