In a blistering novel of raw emotion and desire, a tormented woman teaches an alpha male that money can’t fix everything . . . but love can.

Tiffany : After fighting for a new life, I don’t want to play the victim anymore. However, with three kids to raise, I’m getting desperate enough to make a deal with the devil. My estranged brother-in-law, Blake, says he just wants to help, but he’s been trouble since I met him. I don’t know if I can believe this kinder, gentler Blake, and there’s a friction between us that has turned into the sweetest chemistry. He could be my salvation . . . or my downfall.

Blake : I haven’t always had Tiffany’s best interests at heart but I’m ready to make up for my sins. Besides, I can’t help admiring her: The girl’s a genuine survivor, tough and lean, with eyes of steel. But the more I get to know Tiffany, the more I want her. Every inch of her. Which means I’m about to make a bad situation a hell of a lot worse.

 

 
Tiffany Edwards is a 26-year old mother of three children under the age of seven and is separated from her abusive husband. Until recently, she lived in a dilapidated trailer in an equally squalid park but managed to make some very good friends. When her brother-in-law discovers her, Blake Edwards offers her money to disappear. Hurt and desperate, she takes the money and moves on. They have a chance meeting one year later when she shows up at Annie & Dylan’s Christmas party and it’s a game changer.

 
I’ve been hungering for this story since the last book ended on that Christmas party cliffhanger and it was definitely worth waiting for. Tiffany may have been down but she’s definitely not out. I didn’t know much about Blake other than his insensitive first encounter with Tiffany but he proved to be an enigma.

 
This was a gut wrenching story on every level as both Tiffany and Blake were well defined, layered characters and struggled to find a way to relate to each other. Talk about walls, these two had mountains to scale. It’s honest despite their fears and the way they persevere is admirable, not to mention off-the-charts steamy.

 
I’ve loved this series with its troubled and unconventional characters who somehow win your hearts in the long run. This story grabbed me from the first page and never let go. Yes, I had to wait for it but the payoff was huge.

About Molly O’Keefe

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 and her novella, “The Christmas Eve Promise” in The Night Before Christmas was nominated for a RITA in 2009. Her book Crazy Thing Called Love won the RITA in 2014.

    I didn’t know what I was walking into with this story given the end of the last one. Here we have Max Daniels, the president of the Skulls Motorcycle Club, shot outside of the Velvet Rope (a strip club) by his “brothers” who were trying to kill him. This after Joan, one of the strippers, had set off two bombs despite Max’s efforts to stop her. She gets him into her car and we’re off to craziness.   The only two certainties I knew about these characters were one was deadly dangerous and the other was a mystery. And, I wasn’t certain I liked either one of them. If this story wasn’t written by one of my most favorite authors, I’d take a […]

    When a book ends on a stunning cliffhanger, the one thing you hope for is the next one doesn’t beat around the bush in resolving the issue. No worries here because the story gets right into it!   The situation involving Annie’s husband was riveting, frightening and tension riddled. The image she created of him didn’t even come close to the reality. It was raw, emotional and dangerous.   I loved how Annie and Dylan further exposed themselves and their vulnerabilities to each other. Both had fascinating histories that defined them and together they struggled to reach some place where they could build something together. These are two of the most complex, intriguing and unpredictable characters I’ve encountered and they’re expertly written.   […]

    The story is told from the first person point of view of Annie McKay, a young woman who is obviously hiding out from something or someone. She’s living in a camping trailer in a rundown trailer park near Cherokee, North Carolina. Her personal circumstances are revealed slowly through conversations she has with a man she only knows as Dylan who was the voice on the other end of a cell phone that was left in the camper by the previous renter. We also get Dylan’s perspective in a third person narrative making this an intriguing exploration of two very compelling characters.   I loved this incredibly complex and compelling story of two people drawn to each other by chance. Through their conversations, we […]

  Playlist for Everything I Left Unsaid…   Florence and The Machine – What Kind Of Man. And with one kiss You inspired a fire of devotion That lasted for twenty years What kind of man loves like this? “The music of Florence and The Machine is like my spirit animal. I wish I could write something so perfectly sexy and broken and personal and smart, popular and totally outside the box at the same time. I love love love this music. And this song fits Annie’s utter dumbstruck and perhaps ill-fated fascination with the man on the other end of the phone…” M.
