Review and Giveaway: Underestimated Too by Jettie Woodruff

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 he 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.

Review by Jen Hagen

Underestimated Too begins six months after the end of Underestimated.  At the end of Underestimated I was completely enthralled by the changes Drew made in himself.   At the end of the first page in Underestimated Too I was questioning my morals.  I loved Drew, but this wasn’t who I wanted to love.  I knew that Jettie was going to be writing Drew’s POV and I was excited to hear his thoughts on how the events progressed.  What we get in Underestimated Too is a wonderful blend of past and present.  Drew is the narrator of the past events and he is an excellent storyteller with a photographic memory, leaving no detail out.  

In Underestimated Too, all our questions about Drew are answered.  We find out everything about his family, the demons that haunt the home he and Morgan reside in, how he was in love with Skylar and his plans for their future, and the events that turned him into the man he is.  I’m sure you have already made presumptions that his past is not pretty.  I justified his behavior on past events, even though I knew in my mind I should not be so forgiving towards him.  I could not stop feeling the hurt and betrayal he faced at a young age and how it effected him as he grew into an adult and lover.  

Drew continues to be in control of their relationship and Morgan is fine with this.  It’s how they work.  They are a happy family with baby Nicholas.  But every now and then the Drew that we thought was long buried underneath all his love for Morgan surfaces. 

I was scared.  I hadn’t seen Drew like this in a very long time.  He wasn’t Drew at all.  He was out of control. 

I hated Drew and the person he reverted back to, but yet I still loved him.  I really wondered how I could have fallen in love with him and continued to love him.  A leopard never changes his spots, right?  Morgan and I shared the same thoughts when it came to loving Drew… 

No other woman in their right mind would love Drew after doing the things he had done.  I love him.  I loved him more than anything.  Maybe I was sick too, it wasn’t right. I shouldn’t love him. 

There is no doubt that Drew loves Morgan.  His biggest fear is that Morgan will leave him.  He controls her and watches her because in his mind this will not allow her the opportunity to walk away.  But he of all people should know that Morgan is a strong-willed person capable of hiding her own secrets and not to underestimate her. 

I had two choices.  I could keep on loving this Drew, and never hold him accountable for his actions, or I could move on.   

Drew and Morgan have a unique relationship that isn’t for everybody.  So many times I questioned what my morals were because in my head I knew that I would never be in a relationship like theirs, but yet I still loved Drew and justified his actions on more than one occasion.  Jettie is a master at making me love the bad guy, turning him into a person who is worthy of love despite any actions that should warrant otherwise.   When the last page of Drew and Morgan’s story is over, I still love Drew as he once again redeemed himself.   

“I’m an imperfect man, and I’ve made my wife an imperfect woman.  We’re just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other.  She will forever be my always.”
