The Synopsis and My ‘Blogging Readers Review’ after reading Misled (Book #1):
‘Misled’ is the first novel of the ‘Death Dwellers MC Series’ by author Kathryn Kelly. I was excited to be invited to read the first three novels of this series, especially after reading the synopsis for each of these novels. As the reader, you will be able to read this novel through the two P.O.V.’s(point of views) of Megan ‘Meggie’ Foy and Christopher ‘Outlaw’ Caldwell.
Megan ‘Meggie’ Foy is a pretty, blonde haired, blue-eyed, seventeen year old, who’s home life with her mother and stepfather is nothing like it seems to the outside world. Behind closed doors, her stepfather is very abusive, in more ways than one, to Meggie and her mother Dinah. After one horrific night of the abuse, Meggie decides that enough is enough. Meggie has been out of touch with her biological father Joseph Foy, for a while now at the request of her mother and stepfather but she is determined to find him to tell him the truth about her home life. He’s not your average father, Joe ‘Boss’ Foy happens to be the President of the Death Dweller MC(motorcycle club). She holds onto the hope that he will be her salvation.
Then you have the tall, dark haired, tattooed, muscular man who goes by the name of ‘Outlaw’, in his early thirties who has taken the lead in the Death Dweller MC(motorcycle club), after the former President is killed. The world he is a part of consists of illegal dealings and acts of violence, tons of sexual fulfillment and drugs on a regular basis. The Death Dweller’s have been going through a rough time adjusting to the new leadership and the demise of their former leader, who happened to be ‘Outlaw’s’ mentor. When a young beautiful blonde with blue eyes that match his former mentor shows up at the Death Dweller’s MC property, he finds himself wanting to get rid of her but at the same time, a part of him is trying to pull her close.
This story definitely has some heavy situations but the characters and the depth of the story keeps your interest from beginning to end. I liked how the author put focus on how easy people can be judgmental and how ‘looks can be deceiving.’ Meggie and Christopher(Outlaw) go through a roller coaster of emotions as they both fall for each other; her inexperience becomes alluring to someone like ‘Outlaw’ because all he’s known is fast women. Christopher ‘Outlaw’ must make difficult choices when it comes to Meggie, the truth and his role as the new President of the Death Dwellers MC. When Meggie finds out the truth about her father, will she be able to cope? Can ‘Outlaw’ find out who’s been disloyal to him as the new leader of the Death Dweller’s MC before it’s too late? This is not your conventional love story but it’s definitely enticing and enthralling in it’s own right. I do recommend you check this novel out. Excited to see what the rest of the novels in this series have in store.
Reader Warning: The story is of the Adult & Contemporary Romance genre. Contains strong-sexual content & strong language at times. Also mature situations, violence, abuse and rape. Recommended only for readers- ages 18+.
MY BLOGGING READER’S STAR SCORE FOR ‘MISLED’ 4 1/2 out of 5 stars:
How I imagined the characters while reading ‘Misled’ & ‘Misappropriate’ of the Death Dwellers MC Series:
★★★MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘MISLED’★★★
Preface: In each of us lives good and evil. The conundrum we face as a society is recognizing those we pigeonhole as evil and those we applaud as good. That the grossest mislabeling in the world, the greatest injustice. Have we not heard of the fable of The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing?
Megan ‘Meggie’s’ thoughts: Meggie’s sense of outrage overwhelmed her at times and she couldn’t help but fight back but there was absolutely no winning with Thomas. Unless they ended up on an outpost in Antarctica, he’d always find them and hurt them. One day, he’d kill them if Meggie didn’t do something.
Big Joe ‘Boss’ Foy to Megan ‘Meggie’ Foy(daughter): “You need me, call. I’m a phone call away. Remember, you’re my daughter. No matter what that asshole says to you, don’t believe shit. The problem is his, not yours.”
Thomas’s words weren’t the problem. It was his actions.
Megan ‘Meggie’s’ thoughts upon seeing ‘Outlaw’ the first time: The gun should be more important, but she’d never seen such a beautiful man before. A beautiful, unclothed man.
‘Outlaw’s’ thoughts on Megan ‘Meggie’: Every now and then, her eyes sparkled and snapped, fascinating him. Her eyes were so much like Boss’s and Snake’s, hinting at the little hellcat hiding within the frightened girl.
Christopher ‘Outlaw’: “Prez, I’m gonna take good care of your baby girl. As long as she want me, I’m gonna lay the world at her feet. I’d kill for her and I’d die for her.”

About the Second installment of ‘Death Dwellers MC Series’:
Author: Kathryn Kelly
Series: Death Dwellers MC Series (Book #1.5 – Novella)
Published date: (February 14th, 2014)

The Synopsis and My ‘Blogging Readers Review’ after reading Misappropriate (Book #1.5 -Novella):
***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read ‘Misled(book #1)’***
‘Misappropriate’ is the second novel of the ‘Death Dwellers MC Series’ by author Kathryn Kelly. I’m already two books deep into this series and I can honestly say that I’ve grown fond of these characters, as imperfect as they are. The characters of this series are not sweet and proper but more rough and honest, and that is a nice change from many contemporary romance novels. Readers, you’ll be happy to know that you will be reading this novel through about five P.O.V.’s(point of views) which are from Megan ‘Meggie’ Foy, Christopher ‘Outlaw’ Caldwell, Dinah(Meggie’s mom), Lucas ‘Mortician’ Banks(of the D.D. MC’s) and Johnnie ‘John-Boy’ Donovan(Christopher ‘Outlaw’s’ cousin).
The story picks up a little later on, after where book one of this series left off. Megan ‘Meggie’ Foy is planning to have her big wedding day to the Death Dweller MC’s leader, Christopher ‘Outlaw’ Caldwell. They have already sealed the deal legally but Meggie is set and determined to get her marriage to Christopher blessed in a church. Christopher ‘Outlaw’s’ brothers in the MC ask Meggie if she wouldn’t mind getting away for a while so they could throw Christopher ‘Outlaw’ a bachelor party. Finally giving in and agreeing, she decides to take a short trip back home to Seattle where her and her mother Dinah use to live with her abusive stepfather. From that flight away, Meggie and Christopher’s path to wedded bliss and happiness with their baby boy CJ, will cross a direct path with a ruthless, evil person from Christopher ‘Outlaw’ Caldwell’s past. Her happiness is teetering on the edge of destruction and she will do whatever she can to protect her son CJ, her love Christopher ‘Outlaw’ and herself from all of the dangers that are lurking around them.
Christopher ‘Outlaw’ Caldwell loves Megan with all of his heart but when you’re a tough as nails, bad-ass, who leads a well known motorcycle club, you have a reputation to live up to. He doesn’t want to let Meggie or his newborn son, CJ, out of his sight because he always worries about his world crossing paths with his family. Especially after what happened with his mother, he fights hard to protect the only good he has left in his life, Meggie and their son CJ. When someone who he has loathed, hated and would kill without a second thought, makes contact with Meggie, his protectiveness grows. It seems this person from Christopher ‘Outlaw’s’ past is determined to scare Meggie and make ‘Outlaw’ see that he’d be better off not being so weak, the way he is with Meggie at his side.
This is another great story from the ‘Death Dwellers MC Series’ and it will leave you hoping that Christopher ‘Outlaw’ won’t become consumed with hate and rage against his rooted past. The characters in this series continue to pull the reader into their world thanks to the author’s entertaining storyline. The only person that can work your nerve is Dinah, Megan’s mom. Will Meggie get her dream wedding or will Christopher’s past destroy it all? Will Christopher ‘Outlaw’ come to terms that Meggie loves him no matter what or will the person from his past make him want to leave her side? I do recommend this novel and this series. Excited to read the third book of this series because it gives more focus on another character I’ve grown fond of, Christopher’s cousin- ‘Johnnie Donovan’. Between Christopher ‘Outlaw’ and his cousin Johnnie ‘John-Boy’, there is definitely a nice blend of hot alpha-male and protective love-makers all through out this great series! Check it out. 🙂
Reader Warning: The story is of the Adult & Contemporary Romance genre. Contains strong-sexual content & strong language at times. Also mature situations, some violence. Recommended for readers- ages 18+.
MY BLOGGING READER’S STAR SCORE FOR ‘MISAPPROPRIATE’ 4 out of 5 stars:
★★★MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘MISAPPROPRIATE’★★★
Megan ‘Meggie’s thoughts: To her, Christopher was everything she could ever want–a wonderful father and a very dedicated husband. To everyone else…he was both feared and respected because of the way he carried himself and the way he handled things.
Christopher ‘Outlaw’s’ thoughts: He couldn’t even imagine laying a hand on no other bitch now that he had Megan. She’d turned his life upside down from the day they met. Not only did she stand up to him, she stood up for him. Saw him as a man worthy of love.
A threat to Christopher ‘Outlaw’: Megan is safe. For now. Until the best man wins, so if you want me so bad, fucking find me.
Megan ‘Meggie’ to Christopher ‘Outlaw’: “You are who you are. Outlaw. Cold-blooded killer. MC President. Tough ass. Christopher. Bad boy. Sex god. Husband. Man I love. And father…”
Christopher ‘Outlaw’s’ thoughts: This. Was. NOT. Fucking. Happening. A. Fucking. Gain.
And on his motherfucking wedding day.
Narrator’s thoughts on Johnnie and Meggie: Johnnie shifted next to Christopher, the light falling on his blond hair, sad resignation in his eyes. He nodded and gave her the barest of smiles. Meggie hoped he found a woman to love and who loved him just as fiercely in return. No one deserved it more than Johnnie.

Author: Kathryn Kelly
Series: Death Dwellers MC Series (Book #2)

The Synopsis and My ‘Blogging Readers Review’ after reading Misunderstood (Book #2):
***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read ‘Misled(book #1)’ or ‘Misappropriate(book #1.5)’***
‘Misunderstood’ is the third novel of the ‘Death Dwellers MC Series’ by author Kathryn Kelly. I really admire how the author has written characters that you can’t help but grow attached to. When they are at their worst or at their very best, you still want to see them come out on top and not defeated. In the third novel, you will get to read this novel through about four P.O.V.’s(point of views) which come from newcomer Kendall Miller, handsome favorite-Johnnie ‘John-Boy’ Donovan, Lucas ‘Mortician’ Banks(of the D.D. MC’s) and Zoann Donovan(Christopher’s sister and Johnnie’s cousin).
You meet newcomer to the Death Dweller MC world, Kendall Miller. She is tall, with long red-hair and long beautiful legs. She is sent to try and seduce ‘Outlaw’ at his own bachelor party at the club but ends up hooking up with his V.P.-cousin, Johnnie instead for one-hot-night. Too bad for her, ‘Outlaw’ was her intended target. She isn’t an evil woman set on ruining ‘Outlaw’s’ and Meggie’s relationship, she is set on trying to desperately do anything to help free her underage-teenage sister from being imprisoned by a very powerful man by the name of Logan Donovan. Kendall got into this predicament thanks to her now ex-boyfriend, who is the leader of the Torpedoes MC, by the name of ‘Spoon’. She will do anything she has to in order to try and free her young sister before it’s too late and she’s lost in the world of dark, sexual-trade and abuse forever.
Johnnie ‘John-Boy’ Donovan is still hung up on his cousin ‘Outlaw’s Old Lady and wife, Megan ‘Megs’ and can’t find anyone to replace her from his fantasy thoughts. That is until he spends one night fulfilling his pleasures, desires and needs with a tall, beautiful and mysterious red haired lady who showed up naked to his cousin’s bachelor party. Johnnie was as gentle and erotic towards Kendall in a way that made a lasting impression on her mind, body and heart. Unbeknownst to Johnnie, she was sent with an agenda.
‘Outlaw’ and Meggie leave to enjoy a couple of weeks or their honeymoon, leaving V.P. of the Death Dwellers MC, Johnnie in charge. Johnnie just wants everything to go smooth and without a hitch but unfortunately, his time in his leader role would be anything but peaceful. With a ghost from the past returning with evil-manipulation on his mind, the Death Dwellers’ will have to be ready to protect everything and everything a part of their biker family. Johnnie must bring out the ‘Iceman’ in order to get to the bottom of it all.
I’m still loving this series even though it get’s darker at times with each novel. I think it’s the fact that the characters(Johnnie ‘John-Boy’, Megan ‘Meggie’, Christopher ‘Outlaw, Mortician, Val and everyone else associated with the Death Dwellers MC, are entertaining and intriguing characters. Then on top of that, you have gritty, hot and captivating storyline in each of these novels in this series. Will Kendall be able to free her sister before it’s too late? Can Johnnie handle everything that is thrown at him? Find out who will survive the latest threat to the Death Dwellers by checking this great novel out. I do recommend it and this series. The warning below is posted because some readers may find this gripping tale a little to dark for their taste. But I have to add, if a dark-gritty story doesn’t faze you, definitely read this novel series.
Reader Warning: The story is of the Adult & Contemporary Romance genre. Contains strong-sexual content & strong language at times. Also mature situations, violence, abuse, death and suicide. Recommended only for readers- ages 18+.
MY BLOGGING READER’S STAR SCORE FOR ‘MISUNDERSTOOD’ 4 out of 5 stars:
How I imagined the characters while reading ‘Misunderstood’ of the Death Dwellers MC Series:
★★★MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘MISUNDERSTOOD’★★★
Johnnie ‘John-Boy’s’ thoughts: Now, everyone will discover I’m not the perfect, easy-going man I project myself to be. They will see that evil lurks from within -my family and my heart. Because my family is different. We are founded and forged in heartache and betrayal. Unless I intercede, so will we be destroyed by the same.
Kendall’s thoughts: She’d thought she’d finally found a man who understood her and would protect her at any and all costs. But, no, ‘Spoon’ had cheated on her, lied to her, and stolen her heart and soul -her little sister -and handed her over to him.
Johnnie’s thoughts: The purest evil left in the world. Logan Donovan. The man who’d tormented Christopher for his entire childhood. Their grandfather. And the founder of the Death Dwellers’ MC.
Johnnie to Kendall: “You do that for me -you trust me enough to give me the words to figure all this out -and I’ll do everything in my power to keep you safe.”
He backed away from her, his eyes fierce. “Give my last breath to do it.”
Mortician to Johnny ‘John-Boy’: “You adaptable. A GQ looking asshole. A educated, proper talking snob. A patched-in member of the club. A motherfucker who can slit your fuckin’ throat and shoot your fuckin’ head off.”-(Mortician)
“I agree,”Val said. “Chameleon motherfuckers like you dangerous, John Boy.”-(Val)
Megan to Kendall: “The club that Christopher loves, Johnnie, all of them, is on the verge of collapsing because of a man who came back to life.”
“We can be friends. We can be anything you want. First, we have to save them. My Christopher and your Johnnie.”
