Blog Tour: Understimated Too by Jettie Woodruff

Title: Underestimated Too
Author: Jettie Woodruff
Genre: Adult Romance
Publication Date: March 15

WARNING. This book contains: explicit sex scenes (some forced, some not), intense situations not meant for the faint of heart, abuse, adult language and content.

Money is not the most important thing in the world. Love is, so they say anyway. Fortunately, Drew loves money. He wasn’t capable of loving anything else. The more money he made, the more he needed to make. Always chasing a deal, that was the most important thing in the world to him.

You rode Morgan’s side of the tracks. Now ride Drew’s. You know the things she went through, things nobody should go through. Is Drew sorry for his part in that? Probably not. He’s not sure things would have turned out the way they did had he been the cute little husband the critics expected him to be. He did do things that hurt her, and regretted a lot of his choices, but tortured himself, wanting to do them still.

You think you know Drew? You don’t know squat. You know what his wife has told you. She couldn’t tell you more than that, she doesn’t know that part of Drew. You want a sappy cliché romance? Move on, this isn’t the story for you. You want all th
e gruesome details? Stick around, and then you can judge Drew.

I had a really hard time reading Underestimated due to the nonsense violence towards one of the main characters, this one was easier to read.
This second book goes deeper into both their pasts, but specially Drew's. At times I cringed and felt like crying for the little boy that was forced into a live that was way too mature for his years and the horrendous abuse he was put through. I was horrified that having a mother who supposedly cared enough to had saved him once when he was younger, she completely ignored what he was going through as an older boy and through his teenage years. Drew redeemed himself a bit in this book and I was able to see him under a different light, but some of the things he did I would never be able to forget.
We still hear from Morgan, even though this is more of Drew's book. At times I wanted to hug her and cheer with her and tell her how wonderful she was doing, but there were times were I really wanted to smack her and made her understand the danger her and her baby were in and the terrible example she was setting for her son.
I really liked the fact that Jettie gave us a more human, and at times, compassionate Drew, that she showed him vulnerable. In my opinion his past doesn't excuse some of the things he did but it does help us understand the why behind it all.
There is no doubt in my mind that Jettie is a very gifted writer and I would read future books from her, this book is well written and she keeps you engaged from beginning to end. The subject matter of this book is not for everybody, it is a bit delicate despite its tender moments and a bit of redemption at the end. I questioned myself more than once what would I do if that was me in a relationship like that. And that's what a good writer does, it makes you think and get involved in the story.

“You coming soon? The photographer will be here any minute. Do you really want me to dress Nicholas for this?”
“No way, we’re leaving now… Drew?”
“The moving guys left two boxes of papers here for me. Should I bring them home for you?”
“No, I’ll send Celeste after them tomorrow. Come home. Nicky will be awake soon.”
“Okay, but you just called him Nicky again.”
“You don’t have to point it out every time I do it.”
“Yes I do. I’ll see you in a few. I have to run Alicia home first.”
“You should stop and get us some beer. We’ll float around the pool naked after Marta leaves and NICHOLAS goes to bed.”

Writing is more than a passion for me. I write adult books, romance and erotica. I did recently try my hand at a young adult romance, but because of the gutter that my mind seems to fall into. It quickly went into rated R mode. I reside in Ohio. I love living in Ohio, except maybe the cold winters, and the snow, well maybe the hot summers too. Ah hell, I hate Ohio.

I love to push my limits in writing, fuel the senses and emotions of my readers. I have some great supporters and love them all dearly.
