Blog Tour & Giveaway: Underestimated Too by Jettie Woodruff5:05 AMAlma Lopez
Title: Underestimated Too
Author: Jettie Woodruff
Genre: Adult Romance
Publication Date: March 15
Tour Host: Dreams Come True Promotions
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 the gruesome details? Stick around, and then you can judge Drew.

Damn Jettie Woodruff...you put me under your voodoo spell once again! I willingly hopped aboard this intense emotional ride, which was both incredible and excruciating at the same time. Drew and Morgan's journey had me flirting on the edge of a tuck and roll off this crazy ride, but in the very next moment I was holding on with a deadly grip! Jettie Woodruff is a mad genius that will evoke every kind of emotion from you whether you want it or not. I was not merely blown away...I was knocked straight on my ass and I am still feeling the throbbing ache...which just like Morgan, I loved every second of. I was beyond thrilled when I heard there was going to be a second book after Underestimated and it was going to tell Drew's story. I didn't realize how much I wanted to explore the twisted mind of Drew Kelley, until I got a front row ticket to the effed up show. I loved how Jettie Woodruff went about telling his story. Instead of doing the book in the more obvious way, from Drew's POV or a mix of both of them, she told his story through their therapy sessions. Let me tell you, there were times I was yelling, gasping, blubbering like an idiot, and then I was cracking up laughing all within the same chapter. He did not spare one little detail or sugar coat one bit of his illicit past including all sexual trysts that didn't all involve Morgan. We left off in Underestimated with Morgan choosing the new and seemingly improved Drew and Morgan giving birth to their baby. Everything seemed that maybe they would get the rainbow and unicorn happily ever after right? Well Drew's demons weren't that easy to keep buried....and let's face it, Morgan and Drew were never your typical normal couple to begin with.
"Tell me you love me, Morgan."
"I love you, Drew," I panted, coming down from a glorious high.
"Tell me I don't deserve you, but you love me so much, you're always going to be here."
Well even after some sunny days, the storm clouds eventually caught up to them. At least they both loved each other enough that they agreed to go to therapy in an attempt at working through their problems. Morgan was clearly more willing then Drew though, every time it came time to talk about his past, he fired the therapist. What a very Drew thing to do. Eventually they found a therapist that wasn't intimidated by Drew's aggressive bark and did not hesitate to put him in his place. After beginning to divulge his dark twisted past, it unravelled a deep seeded rage in him that he was unable to control. He unfortunately took out his frustrations on Morgan. Was unleashing those demons really a good idea, or was it begining to back fire on them? Either way, that bitch Pandora was now dead set on opening her box, and there was nothing they could do but hold on tight to that distant fading light of hope.
"I wish he could vent in other ways, like let me be there for him, tell him we were going to be okay, and make him feel secure. He wasn't the type to do that, not yet anyway."
There were definitely some ups and downs throughout the release of both of their demons. Meanwhile, Morgan tried to stay optimistic without reverting to the old Morgan who didn't stand up for herself. She also had to be strong for their son Nicholas' sake. She refused to continue the cycle of abuse with him. Mrs. Woodrfuff also was able to deliver more of that air of mystery in this book as well. While Drew was spilling his guts in therapy, Morgan found out that Drew was still hiding something and she was dedicated to find out what it was. I appreciated this part, because it effectively gave me an emotional breather between the tumultuous therapy sessions.
"Drew was abusive and I enabled him. I let him have control. I handed it over to him like it was my duty. I fed fuel to his fire by permission."
Despite all their hard work in therapy, Drew still didn't seem to be strong enough to control his inner demon from lashing out. It took a horrible incident to finally push Drew to his breaking point. Will this finally pull them apart for good, or will it give Drew his final drive to fix himself and let go of his demons? I got to say that no matter how much I rooted for their HEA...I honestly didn't know if they were going to make it or not. It seemed like they could never catch a break.
"Drew did love me. I know Drew loved me. He loved me the only way he knew how. And as repulsive as it sounds. I'd take it."
I can say with 100 percent conviction, that I loved every torrid, raw, effed up, gripping word of this book. I, in true Morgan fashion, relinquished complete control of my emotions to Jettie Woodruff. At first I could say, that it was quite disturbing how much I loved this book, but in the end I grabbed it by the balls and can now say it loudly and proudly! Many authors that decide to continue the story in a second book fail miserably at measuring up to the first one. This author not only lived up to the first book, but went way beyond my wildest expectations. The characters will stick with me for a long time, and the amazing storyline pushed all my former boundaries to new levels of awesomeness. Thank you Jettie Woodruff for pushing me to love something I didn't even realize I would love!
5 out of 5 Intense, Wildly Frustrating, Enthralling Stars!
“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.
