Untamed by M. O’Keefe is now live!
Marriage has always meant violence. I don’t trust it, but it’s the only thing keeping me afloat in these dark undercurrents. I married for safety but I got the most dangerous thing in the world–Ronan Byrne for a husband.
Now we’re returning to Bishop’s Landing to face our demons. Mine. His. We have real enemies to conquer, but it’s the fear in my heart that beats the loudest. I can’t stop being in love with him. Except the killer with the heart of stone doesn’t love me.
I don’t know whose family I belong in anymore. Or whether I should stay with Ronan when this is over. But I may not live long enough to make the choice.
OMG, only Molly O’Keefe could make me read a trilogy as each book comes out and enjoy it. I’m all about instant gratification, and having to wait for my HEA hard. Thank goodness I know she’ll make it worth that wait, though–and Untamed definitely is!
Poppy and Ronan’s story just about killed me, y’all. It’s so angsty and dark and there’s so many times I was sure she couldn’t possibly get these two crazy kids to an HEA–the Constantines, the Morellis, heck, even the people who were supposedly on Ronan’s and Poppy’s side–everyone seemed to be conspiring against them. The endings of books one and two ( Stolen Hearts and Broken Hearts ) were bad enough, and then there’s all the drama in here…let’s just say that HEA, when it finally comes, is very well earned.
I loved watching Poppy come into her own here, and watching Ronan slooooooowly come to realize that he could have something more in his life than killing and pain. Gah. Ms O’Keefe is so good at this kind of writing, and I am here for it. I’m bummed to see their story come to an end, but so, so glad to finally get to see them in their HEA.
And it’s a glorious HEA <3
Untamed is the third book in the trilogy, and you really do have to read the other two first to really follow all of the plot threads–preferably one after the other, now that they’re all out 😉 Reading them with dozens of books in between each installment is less than ideal, but I persevered. Barely 😉
Rating: 4 stars / A-
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
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.
Dishing It Out, her last Harlequin Flipside won the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice award for best Flipside in 2005.
Her Superromance Baby Makes Three won the RT Reviewer’s Choice for best Superromance in 2006. L-length Her novella, “The Christmas Eve Promise” in The Night Before Christmas won the RITA in 2009. And her full length contemporary romance CRAZY THING CALLED LOVE won the RITA in 2013.
