undaunted book coverReviewed by Bethany Kelly

What is more appealing than a man in black leather? A man in black leather who also has brains and principles.

Aubrey Evans has to move Tennessee with her grandmother when her dad is indicted for embezzlement, and although she has always been close with her grandma, all she wants to do is save up enough money to move back to Oregon where she used to attend college. However, when tall, dark, handsome, and clad-in-leather Zion comes into play, he’s all she can think about–even though she knows she should steer clear of him.

Zion is the next in line to be the president of the wolves, but when he meets Aubrey, things begin to change. Although he is well aware that she intends to leave Tennessee as soon as possible, he can’t get her out of his head. And when there is a series of break-ins in the neighborhood she lives in, he has the perfect excuse to stay close.

As the two join forces to figure out who is behind the break-ins, will they be able to resist each other? Or will their feelings win in the end?

I will be the first to admit that I am a sucker for romance novels, especially when there is some kind of mystery entailed, as well. These are the type of books that I like to read for enjoyment, and Undaunted by Ronnie Douglas didn’t disappoint.

The novel starts off in the midst of a break-in, and that was all it took to hook me. I not only loved the main characters, but the supporting characters were well-developed, too. Although I knew that Aubrey and Zion would end up together (because everyone knows romance novels end with a happily-ever-after), the trials that they faced to become a couple were very interesting.

Just to point out, this is not a romance novel in the typical sense. There aren’t a ton of ‘romantic’ scenes (if you know what I mean) littered throughout the book. This book is more about them getting to know one another and overcoming the obstacles that are keeping them from being with each other. Honestly, that is what I liked most about it.

All in all, this is definitely a fun and entertaining read, and I look forward to reading the rest of the books to come in this Knights in Black Leather series.
