EVERYTHING I LEFT UNSAID Synopsis:
Fans of Jodi Ellen Malpas, K. Bromberg, and Joanna Wylde will be unable to resist this sexy, deeply intimate tale of a woman running from her past, and the darkly mysterious man who sets her free.
I didn’t think answering someone else’s cellphone would change my life. But the stranger with the low, deep voice on the other end of the line tempted me, awakened my body, set me on fire. He was looking for someone else. Instead he found me.
And I found a hot, secret world where I felt alive for the first time.
His name was Dylan, and, strangely, he made me feel safe. Desired. Compelled. Every dark thing he asked me to do, I did. Without question. I longed to meet him, but we were both keeping secrets. And mine were dangerous. If I took the first step, if I got closer to Dylan—emotionally, physically—then I wouldn’t be hiding anymore. I would be exposed, with nothing left to surrender but the truth. And my truth could hurt us both.
Oh. My. Gosh. Thank goodness book two ( The Truth About Him ) comes out next month, because I honestly don’t think I could survive much longer than that not knowing.
Because yes–cliffhanger ending. Holy schmoly, is it a cliffhanger ending…which I should have seen coming, but I was hurtling right toward that cliff with them and somehow the one big clue (that did make me stop and say hmmmmmm, that can’t be good…. when it came) was out of mu head in practically the next instant when Ms. O’Keefe purposefully distracted me–and Annie–from thinking about it.
I can see why she went with using her initial here instead of her full first name–Everything I Left Unsaid is quite a departure from all the Molly O’Keefe books I’ve read. . Much, much darker–but I love all of her other books, so it was a given I was going to read this one too. Honestly, I’m pretty sure she could write golf commentary (the Geico commercial? Anyone see it during the football games this weekend? Got me every time. But I digress…) and I’d read it. And I’d be turning the pages like a crazy person until I got to the last one, just like I was with this book.
Annie and Dylan–both so damaged, each really, really needing the other but there’s so much in between them. So. Much.
I was reading, pretty much forsaking everything else around me for the day, keeping one eye on the ereader’s progress bar, wondering how she was going to end this.
Now I know.
And I have to get my hands on the conclusion.
Because I just can’t bear to leave Annie and Dylan like this for much longer…
Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A
I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
Molly O’Keefe has always known she wanted to be a writer (except when she wanted to be a florist or a chef and the brief period of time when she considered being a cowgirl). And once she got her hands on some romances, she knew exactly what she wanted to write.
She published her first Harlequin romance at age 25 and hasn’t looked back. She loves exploring every character’s road towards happily ever after.
Originally from a small town outside of Chicago, she went to university in St. Louis where she met and fell in love with the editor of her school newspaper. They followed each other around the world for several years and finally got married and settled down in Toronto, Ontario. They welcomed their son into their family in 2006, and their daughter in 2008. When she’s not at the park or cleaning up the toy room, Molly is working hard on her next novel, trying to exercise, stalking Tina Fey on the internet and dreaming of the day she can finish a cup of coffee without interruption.
