Beauties! Jettie Woodruff's Underestimated and Underestimated Too are AMAZING!

I recently found myself to be in a bit of a book slump.  Nothing seemed to catch my attention as I browsed through the pages of recommendations on Amazon, read the latest reviews, listened to friends share their favorite books- none of it sounded like just the right book for me.

I'd heard some really good things about an author who several of my friends seemed to rave about, however I'd never picked up anything by Jettie Woodruff.  After some back and forth conversation with my book Beauty, JMAC, I found a sweet little Amazon gift waiting for me in my inbox- a very sweet, talented author- I'd soon find would be one of my favorites, had gifted me Underestimated: Book One.  Little did I know that this author and series would quickly be added to the top of my favorites.

I was drawn in from the beginning of the book.  I didn't want to put it down because I knew something was going to happen- something had to happen in order to explain all of the dark, edgy comments that I'd heard and read about from the reviews.  What I seemed to have in my hands was a nice little romance about a girl starting over in small town, running from something or someone that I only caught a hint of here and there, as I started off.

As I reached just over a quarter of the way through the book, I was already trying to pace myself because I didn't want to finish it too quickly.  I'd then pick the pace back up again when I remembered there was a sequel waiting, just "one click" away.

I'm not sure if I was more drawn to the story line that seemed to build and build, layer upon layer as I read on or if it was the strength of Morgan- a simple, small town girl who grows into such a brave, strong woman- capable of anything, that kept me flipping to the next page.

And talk about falling in love with a monster of a character like Drew!  I couldn't believe I'd be drawn to someone who was capable of such awful abuse.  But, my book buddies told me to keep on reading and sure enough, Holy Hotness! It happened; I get it now!

I can't just leave this off as a review only for Underestimated.  I quickly one clicked Underestimated Too and immediately started it as quickly as I could close out the first book and open the second on my Kindle.  This was the book I had to pace myself with.  I cherished every page, every paragraph, every sentence and word.  I was in love with these characters- I found myself caring for them- being happy when they were happy- upset when they were hurt or in pain.  This book was just as good, if not a little bit better, even...if that's possible- than the first.  How rare is that- to find a sequel that keeps up with your expectations for the first book in the series?!

I give both of these books 5 stars- I'd give more if it was possible!  If you haven't already, you need to follow these links over to Amazon and  buy both of these amazing books.  While you're there- go ahead and buy your self a copy of Jettie's latest 5 star book-  Shhh...Mack's Side.  She's unstoppable- I can't wait to share more of this special lady's work with you!
