The Synopsis and My ‘Blogging Readers Review’ after reading Novella ‘Misdeeds’ (Book #2.5):
***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novels/Novellas of the Death Dwellers MC Series.***
‘Misdeeds’ is the fourth novel of the ‘Death Dwellers MC Series’ by author Kathryn Kelly but it’s also a novella. The characters continue to be very strong in the sense that you will either strongly like or dislike them. Despite the trials they deal with and the sometimes terrible ways they deal with them, you can’t help but feel that they are raw and could be real because they can be known to make both good and terrible choices at times. You will be reading this novella through about five P.O.V.’s(point of views) but mainly from Kendall Miller and our sexy biker favorite-Johnnie ‘John-Boy’ Donovan. But we also get some P.O.V.’s from Death Dwellers MC bikers – Lucas ‘Mortician’ Banks, Matthew ‘Val’ Taylor and Louis ‘Stretch’ King.
We met Kendall Miller in the last novel, who was new to the Death Dweller MC world thanks to being thrust into the biker world by a rival leader named ‘Spoon’ of the Torpedoes MC. With her long red-hair, long beautiful legs and tall height, she comes across as a beautiful woman in her early-thirties upon first impression. Unfortunately, after her time with her ex-boyfriend ‘Spoon’ and her personal issues, she is very mistrusting, reclusive in a way that she begins to push away any chances of possible friendship with Megan and risks her relationship with Johnnie in the process. Because of her issues, she also begins to cause friction in the Death Dwellers MC and between cousins Christopher ‘Outlaw’ and Johnnie ‘John-Boy’.
After putting an end to one evil monster in the previous novel and now having to bury one of their own, the Death Dwellers must reboot and be ready to hunt down their sadistic enemy ‘Spoon’ and handle the unfinished business with him. It’s personal to both Johnnie and Christopher so they can avenge the harm that occurred by the hands of ‘Spoon’, Kendall’s ex-boyfriend and bring down the Torpedoes MC in the process. It becomes a dangerous time in the middle of a war between the two motorcycle clubs, which can definitely become risky to the pregnant Old Ladies, Megan and Kendall as they struggle to find an understanding and get past their dislike for each other for the sake of their men the the club.
In this novella we get to know more about ‘Mortician’ and Bailey and their possible relationship that seems to be growing after the death of Bailey’s father, former Death Dweller MC member, K.P. We also get to know more about Matthew ‘Val’ Taylor and his tumultuous relationship with Christopher ‘Outlaw’s’ sister, Zoann and the baby they share and love. And last but not least we get to know Louis ‘Stretch’ King better, who is a trusted member of the Death Dwellers MC and is dealing with own dilemmas and secrets.
The Death Dwellers MC and Kendall must deal with the deaths of people they care about and the aftermath of those ordeals and tragic losses, while dealing with the ongoing war with the Torpedoes MC and ‘Spoon’. Secrets from the past never stop surfacing, which also seem to cause friction within the compound of the Death Dwellers MC group and their Old Ladies. Stuff gets heavy at times, that you don’t know if they will all make it through to the end or if they will even continue to be allies or enemies by the end of the story. All of this will definitely work towards keeping readers entertained throughout the story. Find out if Johnny and Kendall can finally find a happily ever after with each other or if heartbreak is on the brink? Can the war between the two MC’s ever come to an end or will it just bring the end to them both with destruction and mayhem? Who will be left standing and who won’t survive? Read this story to find out. In this novella expect more hot moments, heartbreak, love, fighting, and sadly, more tragedy. Just another day in the Death Dwellers MC world. I do recommend this novella and this series because the characters are always easy to love, easy to hate or somewhere in between. Great dynamics. Check this series and novella out.
Reader Warning: The story is of the Adult & Contemporary Romance genre. Contains strong-sexual content & strong language at times. Also mature situations, violence and abuse. Recommended only for readers- ages 18+.
MY BLOGGING READER’S STAR SCORE FOR ‘MISDEEDS’ 4 out of 5 stars:
How I imagined the characters while reading ‘Misdeeds’ of the Death Dwellers MC Series:
★★★MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘MISDEEDS’★★★
Kendall’s thoughts about Mortician and Bailey: If he went to her now, he’d be claiming her as his. While Kendall understood the dynamics of such an action, she wanted him to ignore the stupid codes just this once. Bailey needed him right now.
Johnnie’s thoughts: One day, Kaleb was alive and at the clubhouse, daring anyone to fuck with Dinah and threatening to hack Mort’s dick off if he touched Bailey. The next day, K-P was gone. Human like everyone else, not the invincible man Johnnie had chalked him up to be.
Val’s thoughts: Obviously, the Torps were watching them as closely as they were watching the Torps. Those fuckers were hitting where they were most vulnerable. Their women.
Kendall’s thoughts: She didn’t know how to overcome her terror and shame. She didn’t know how to overcome her love for Johnnie or how to make herself want to do anything other than stay inside and keep house.
Kendall to Johnnie: “The other condition is I want a cut like Meggie has. Mine will say Property of John Donovan. That way, the world will know you own my heart.”
