UnBeautifully by Madeline Sheehan ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway



Warning: This is not a story about fate or destiny. This is a story about pain, sorrow, and suffering. This is an impulsive whirlwind romance between two lovers that are not meant to be together. Theirs is not a world with sunshine and roses. Instead, their love blossoms in a secret world full of crime, violence, and death. Their story is about what can be born from nightmares. Danielle “Danny” West is the daughter of Deuce West, President of the Hell’s Horsemen Motorcycle Club. A sweet and beautiful girl, she loses her way, searching for things that are always out of her reach. Erik “Ripper” Jacobs is the Sergeant of Arms in the Hell’s Horsemen. Once a man who always had a smile on his face, his life takes a turn for the worst when a tragedy befalls him, leaving him scarred and broken. During a midsummer night, Danny and Ripper’s paths cross, forever changing their lives. Hastily, their lust turns to love until another tragedy forces them apart. On a journey that is marred with ugliness and chaos, Danny and Ripper must discover if their unforeseen connection can find the beauty in their world. This is Danny and Ripper’s story. Everything has beauty. Even the ugly. Especially the ugly. Because without ugly, there would be no beauty.


The first time I fell in love it was with a pair of blue eyes and a wide dimpled grin.

“Your old man loves ya, Danny girl,” He whispered. “You never ever forget that, yeah?”

I never did. And I never thought I could ever love any man as much as I loved my father. But as we grow, we change, we begin to make our own decisions and thus become independent and self sufficient and start turning away from our parents and turning to others. We form friendships, strong bonds and ties and begin experiencing life outside of the bubble we grew up inside of.

And we fall in love…a second time.

The second time I fell in love it was with a badly scarred face, the stuff of nightmares; the sort of disfigurement that mothers steer their children away from. Ugly, jagged slashes marred the skin from the top of his skull, down over his right eye, an eye that had been dug out of his face with a serrated blade. The scars continued across his cheek, over his lips and down his neck, ending at the top of his shoulder. His chest was a hundred times worse; scar tissue as far as the eye could see.

“Baby,” He said gruffly, “Man like me got no business with a girl like you. You’re nothin’ but fuckin’ beauty and I’m a whole lot of fuckin’ ugly who’s already halfway to hell.”

But he was wrong.

Everything has beauty. Even the ugly. Especially the ugly.

Because without ugly there would be no beauty.

Because without beauty we would not survive our pain, our sorrow, and our suffering.

And in the world I lived in, the world he lived in, a secret world within the world, a world of of constant crime and cruel, cold, death, there was almost nothing but suffering.

“You may not be beautiful the way you were before,” I whispered, placing my hand on his hard chest. “But you’re still beautiful. To me.


I fell in like with Madeline after reading UnDeniable and she brought us Deuce.....after UnBeautifully, I freaking LOVE Madeline...totally girl crushing on her for bringing us Ripper! This series is like nothing I've's honest, dark, raw, gritty, emotional page turner that you can't put down and what I love the most is Madeline has no Filter, she keeps it REAL! 


UnBeautifully is Danny & Ripper's story but once again, we get to visit Eva and Deuce. Madeline juggled all four POV's like a was amazing to be inside the head of all four of them. 

Danny is the daughter of the Deuce, President of the Hell's Horsemen Motorcycle Club. Danny is a beautiful and all girly girl and she is struggling with maturing as a woman and missing her family as it tries to heal from the havoc that Frankie and the attacks of book 1 wreaked on their life. Problem is, no one's healing and their is just a big emotional gap between everyone.  Enter Ripper...all tough and masculine, he may be scarred but  Danny looks past the scars, to her Ripper is beautiful and she wants him.  Ripper knows better, but he can't resist the little blond that is weaseling her way into his heart. So what's the Prez and the rest of the club going to do when they find out the off limits princess is with one of the boys? Plus throw in some Eva and Deuce drama and you have an epic book!

"We do this," he growled softly. "Means you're in my bed and no one else's, yeah?"

This is a must read series! I clung to ever single word like white on rice and did not want it to end! You can tell that Madeline pours her heart and soul into her writing and it shows! Can't wait for UnAttainable and the other books in this series.

Author Interview Questions

What inspired you to write this series?

Oh god. Everything. I’m a big fan of man on a bike and I love the loyalty, the brotherhood and close nit family concept of Motorcycle clubs. I’ve also had a colorful life during which I met a variety of people, all of which inspired both Undeniable and its characters.

How many books are planned for this series and what characters will be getting their own book?

Undeniable (Deuce & Eva), UnBeautifully (Ripper & Danny) and Unattainable (Cage & Tegen) are set in stone but I have done a few outlines for other characters from the Horsemen MC.

Out of all of your books, which one is your favorite and which was the most fun to write?

My Holy Trinity Trilogy is hands down my favorite; Trinity, Gerik and Xan are my babies and I will forever hold them close to my heart. But Undeniable was unquestionably the most fun to write and a lot less research!

Who are some of your favorite books and favorite authors?

I’ve read everything by Leo Tolstoy, Diana Gabaldon and Heather Killough-Walden (her books are like crack for me! Must have them or DIE!) I also like Richelle Mead, Shelly Laurenston, JR Ward, Karen Marie Moning (LOVE HER), Jeanine Frost, Amanda Hocking, Chloe Neill, Jennifer Estep…I could go on for hours… I definitely have a paranormal romance addiction.

Any other series you have in mind in the near future, that you plan on writing, and what will they be about?

Aside from the Trinity Trilogy and the Undeniable Series I have two upcoming books that I’m super excited about. The first, The Beginning of The End, is an apocalyptic/paranormal story that takes place five hundred years after the apocalypse. The story follows Maira, a survivor of the initial apocalypse, who is no longer human and her adventures throughout this new world. It includes a hodge-podge of PRN characters, Fae, Shifters, Dragons, Gods/Goddesses…

The second book, A Demon’s Angel, is a story of a Demon, a Sin Eater named D’Vina, who has been condemned to live an eternity sucking sins off of tainted souls and sending them to one of the seven realms of the underworld…and the Angel named Micah who falls in love with her.
