For fans of Christina Lauren and Jodi Ellen Malpas comes the next novel in M. O’Keefe’s breathtakingly sexy series about a woman called into a journey of the heart, body, and soul.
We played our roles, told each other lies.

But now Dylan is no longer just a mysterious deep voice on the other end of the line. We’re face-to-face and our relationship is very, very real.

We still have secrets—but so much is crystal clear:

The thrilling danger.

The raw, naked desire.

The need to keep feeling the way he makes me feel. Forever.

Dylan is putting up walls, trying to keep me safe, but he can’t shut me out. He has seen my darkness and rescued me. Now it’s my turn, if only he will let me.

*** This review may contain spoilers for book 1, “Everything I left unsaid” ***

After the big cliffy in book one, “Everything I left unsaid”, I was so excited to see, what the outcome of that dangerous situation would be for Annie. If I’d believe in God, I’d have prayed for her. Dylan and Annie’s story continues in this book; they have to overcome a lot. Each one for themselves and then also together as a couple.

The writing was as amazing as in book one; I felt with the characters. But “The truth about him” didn’t make me cry or sit on the edge of my seat like the first book did. The whole mystery-vibe from only knowing each other from phone conversations was missing. The author did include a lot of suspense instead of the mystery of not knowing who the other person is. And that was borderline too much, in my humble opinion at least. If I look back to everything that happened in this book, I can somehow point out the parts of the story, where the author just changed the MC’s direction of thinking completely and if that would have begun in book 1, it would have been more realistic. But for all those years in which both Annie and Dylan had to fight so many ghosts, everything was solved a little too easy in the end. If M. O’Keefe would have put more focus on those two building something solid instead of building a crime-scene that would put “CSI Las Vegas” to shame, then this duet would have been perfect for me. But this OTT suspense dampened my enthusiasm a lot.

A little warning: There’s a lot of violence in this book; the female MC is violated at one point to the extreme of hospitalization. It sometimes was hard for me to stomach.

All in all, I rate “The truth about him” with 4 stars. If I look at both books in total, I’d give this duet 4,5 stars and can recommend it to everyone who loves romance-novels with the little extra at the side J


CLAUDIA’S BOOK REVIEW:  5 “bedrock” stars

I loved this book. I was concern about how Molly would continue Annie & Dylan’s story because I wasn’t sure one more book would help Dylan to deal with ALL his past and demons, but it did and it was perfect!

What I loved the most was that the author didn’t stick into drama and things were solved as they supposed to be. It was drama yes, but not the one that makes you throw the book to the wall.

It was amazing how characters were developed since the first book. Annie grew up outstandingly and she was the light Dylan need to cure his soul. She had faith on him and never gave up on him. And that was what Dylan needed in order to leave the darkness behind and get to the light in his life. Despite of all the damage surrounded them they managed to stick together and find their HEA.

This is the second and final installment of the Everything I’ve left unsaid series. I highly recommend it. The writing was precious, well developed characters, great plot with the perfect amount of feelings. It was lovely, sensual, dangerous and with an amazing message, we all deserve second chances in life”.

“The truth, our truth, was complicated. But it was beautiful. And it was real.”



– Warning: it contains some spoilers from Everything I Left Unsaid –

She was a creature of light, and that did not happen without darkness. And she was mine.

It’s been a few days since I finished The Truth About Him and, still, I feel sad because I didn’t want to end reading the story of Annie and Dylan.

Since that fateful moment when I opened Everything I Left Unsaid and started reading it, I was toooooooooootally hooked. And when I finished it and thought that I wanted to get o the second one ASAP, deep within me I knew damn well that I didn’t want it to end and that I would be so sad when it did.

But, really, how could I resist reading it after that…… cruel cliffhanger of the first book that nearly killed me. And I’m not joking on that! I stopped breathing for almost a minute!

So, The Truth About Him begins from where Everything I Left Unsaid left it: Annie leaves Dylan’s house and returns to the trailer park, determined to divorce her – (coughs) bastard – husband; when she gets there, he’s already waiting for her and knocks her out cold. But now, Annie starts to wake up and the sequel is been set in motion.

As I have already said before in the first book’s review, Molly O’ Keefe has done something in this story that thrilled me. Although both the books have douple POVs, the difference between them is that, in the first one, Annie’s chapters are written with Annie being the one telling the story while, in this one, Dylan has this role. This technique was one that I haven’t seen before and, actually, added to the story something special.

Also, I changed my mind about the characters. At first, I was incredibly addicted and so in love with the way Annie and Dylan started and, at the same time, there was something about them that made me to not love them the same way. But now, I changed my mind. Now, I really really like them because, in this sequel, gave flesh and blood to their love.

They were careful. With their bodies. With the strength of everything they felt – with the whole of each other – they were careful.

Seeing Annie gaining back the confidence, the strength and whatever has been stolen from her and Dylan overpassing his fears, learning how to love, forgive and trust was incredible. But neither could have happened without meeting each other. And that’s because Dylan and Annie are made for each other and are the element that was missing from each other’s self. The only word that can describe this sight is: BEAUTIFUL.

Their love was just that. Beautiful. I couldn’t but feeling warmth and beauty filling my heart. The words that were saying to each other, but, especially, the thoughts and the feelings that they didn’t dare say out loud, overwhelmed me and warmed me. And, even now that I write this review and thinking back to these lines, I start feeling these emotions again.

She owned me. Depondent and wrecked, smiling and bright – it didn’t matter. I was hers.

Molly added the perfect epilogue to an amazing love story and made lose myself again to it. Also, showed that she knows very well how to unfold a story of this kind and make it irresistible and addicting. She never lost a beat and she kept going, taking the intensity and beauty that she added to it, to a whole new level. So, the only thing that I Left Unsaid is a big, big, big thank you to this amazing author whose I became a forever fan!
