~Review: Misbehavior (Death Dwellers MC #3) by Kathryn Kelly~

Matthew “Val” Taylor, the Road Captain in the club, was introduced to sex at an early age. Saved from the streets by the club’s Enforcer and President years ago, Val now lives for women and the open road. Until the night the only woman he’s ever loved is almost killed. Val determines to change his ways and be the man Zoann Donovan should have and the father their son deserves.

Zoann has loved Val for a long time. Violence and bitter betrayal forces her to ignore her feelings and distance herself not only from the sexy RC, but her beloved brother, too. Until she discovers the truth. Can Zoann ever be forgiven for all the pain she’s caused? Will Val overcome his own demons and have a future with her and their son? Who will survive in an MC filled with lust and revenge, love and hate?

Warning: This is a tale of rape, murders, deception, heartache, lies, and infidelity. The road to redemption is a tumultuous struggle where only the strong survive and justice is served…Outlaw-style.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

Zoann Donovan had led a privileged life under the protection of her grandfather.  She had no idea that he was the founder and leader of a violent MC called the Death Dwellers.  Her grandfather had always favored her and her cousin Johnnie while abusive toward her brother Christopher.  She had nice clothes, went to good schools and was treated like a princess.  Zoann loved her brother and could not understand the hatred that her grandfather felt towards him.  She was beginning to feel sexual curiosity when she saw Val for the first time at her grandfather’s house.  Val was everything she had ever dreamed of in a man but her grandfather hated bikers and he was one.  Zoann was asked to cook dinner for her grandfather one night and when she arrived she was not expecting to what was waiting for her, an abusive rapist.  She was not allowed to report the rape and her family would not allow her to talk with anyone about what had happened to her.  Would she ever be able to trust any man again?  She could not trust her brother the one person that had always been there for her. 

Mathew ‘Val’ Taylor is the RC for the Death Dwellers’ MC.  He was rescued by Christopher Donovan, better known as Outlaw when they were still in their teens.  Val was living on the streets, starving and already addicted to drugs and sex.  The club gave him purpose and with the help of his brothers he had kicked his drug addiction and was living the MC life.  Until one day while cleaning up a job at the Prez house he met Zoann and his life was changed forever.  She was sweet, pure and sexy with a stubborn streak that turned him on like never before.  Only problem was the fact she was an MC Princess, the granddaughter of the club founder with a hands off policy if you wanted to live long. It took a while before he finally had a chance with Zoann and he took it. That interlude was the beginning of a love hate relationship between them.

What really happened to Zoann that night?  Who was really responsible for the rapist being in her grandfather’s house?  Why did her brother turn his back on her?  Can she ever open up and share the past with Val?  Will they find a future together?
