❤❤Beautiful Outlaw by Emily Minton - 3.5 star review ❤❤

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?

*arc provided for an honest review*

I liked BOutlaw, maybe not one of my favorite Emily Minton book or MC book, but I thought it was good. Let me explain. I tire of a few things in MC books, and books in general. I tire of screwing things better. To me, Shay would get mad but then Bowie would screw it better. If she's gonna be strong. If she's gonna grow, especially as a leading lady, she's gotta have balls for a president's Old Lady. And I'm not 100% sold she had that. Now did she grow and change and become Shay, the real "Laura". Absofreakinlutely. Did I love the drama between the characters, the rat, and all that? Bet your bottom dollar. I just think Shay needed more. 

And I'm not gonna lie, I got characters confused and sometimes during the story line I had to reread bc I was confused. I needed a recap to keep up. There was just so much going on. But seeing the cameo from another authors MC book was pretty cool too. I can also say that I love that her brother came over to the MC side. I love that they banded together in regards to Marcus and Red. However I'm very upset over Tag. Very very upset that a very good guy, that was so built up and such a huge part of the story to turn into another cheating asshole. It's one thing I hate about MC books and I really hate that it happened to someone who was so instrumental in this book. 

All in all I really liked it, can't wait to see where this will go, and devoured it in a day :)
I give this 3.5 stars
