Review: Beautiful Outlaw by Emily Minton

After ten 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?

Beautiful Outlaw by Emily Minton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First off I have to say I am loving that 4 authors have decided to have each other’s characters show up in their books. In case you didn’t know Chelsea Camaron, Jessie Lane, Emily Minton and Theresa Marguerite Hewitt each have their own MC series and the characters and plots intermix between them.

We’ve all read women being in bad marriages to abusive men but I have to say what the heroine was forced to endure during her marriage was a new one for me. I’ll let the reader find out what that was on their own. When she finally gets the courage to leave him she calls her brother who she has been estranged from because of her husband and comes clean about the sick crap she has had to endure for years and why she married the man in the first place. Her brother decides the best place for her is to hide is with one of his buds from the Army, Bowie who is the Vice President of the Savage Outlaws MC.

This book shows the rougher side of the MC life but the story was a good one and with it being blended with the suspense of if her husband would find her, the power struggle going on within the MC, betrayals from within the club and great secondary characters both part of the MC and associated with it in some form I really enjoyed the story and am glad to have found another new series to follow.
