After the last fourteen years of surviving as a walking, talking, living doll, Laura feels dead inside.
She has sacrificed everything for her family, marrying a man she could never love. Her husband doesn’t beat her, doesn’t berate her. He transforms her, forcing her to live as a stand-in for his long dead wife. She stays silent as piece after piece of herself disappears, willing to do anything to protect the people she loves.
When his demands go too far, she finally tells her brother the ugly truth.
Wanting to protect her without putting the rest of their family at risk, he sends her to the one place he knows she’ll be safe. He places her into the hands of his best friend, Vice President of the Savage Outlaws MC.
Once again, she is transformed into someone new; Shay.
Bowie has spent many nights dreaming about his best friend’s little sister. The reality is so much sweeter than his dreams. He wants to be more for Shay, needs to protect her, but he’s not sure if he knows how.
Can an Outlaw show her how beautiful life should be?
Emily Minton’s Beautiful Outlaw is a fantastic thrill ride and a great start to her new series. The story revolves around Bowie and Shay. To see these two characters come together is a beautiful thing. They teach each other about love and trust. I loved them together.
I enjoyed reading about Nina, basically the club mom. She loves everyone even though most of the guys treated her badly at first. She has a big heart.
Shay’s brother Locke is a mystery. He has association with the club but is not a member. His need to find the other “Gwendolyns” has you wondering what his stake is in the search. It is more than just his sister was involved. I hope that we get more of his story.
Minton pulled characters from Chelsea Cameron’s Hellions MC series. Fans of Cameron’s character Shooter will love this book.
I was a little disappointed that we didn’t get more of a background for Marcus. I would have loved to have known why he did what he did. Who really was his first wife? Why was Shay chosen? Maybe this will be information given in a future book.?.
Minton leaves us with a tease. Not only does she give us one epilogue but we get two. The first one sets up the next book and the second one just teases us. Its okay, I like the tease. It makes me want to read her books more.
My overall thoughts are that I love the book and Minton, as always, did a fantastic job at keeping the reader entertained. All of her characters are strong and help develop the MC atmosphere that she has created. I look forward to future books in this series.
