There was darkness in both of us. And light. I could not claim to have saved him. I could only say that the moment I answered that phone, we began to save each other. Over and over again, in big and small ways.

This second and final book picks up right where the first book left off. Annie is at her trailer and is in grave trouble. She has retreated after Dylan started putting up walls and she revealed the truth about herself. All the things that kept Dylan up on his mountain top compound must be addressed, including his father and his biker brother. I must stress how much I loved Dylan’s father, Ben and how well their relationship progressed throughout this story.

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

What started in the erotically charged Everything I Left Unsaid, now comes to a gripping conclusion with The Truth About Him. What a ride this book was and so different from the first one too, in the best of ways.

I was completely captivated with Dylan and Annie's story from the very beginning, and that only became even more so with this one. It's like Everything I Left Unsaid was the set up for this b

The Truth About Him, picks up where the previous book left us hanging. With Annie in an precarious situation, coming face to face with the past she was desperately trying to escape. It seems danger is lurking around every corner for Dylan, Annie and their loved ones. Sacrifices are made and secrets are revealed.

In this installment the reader is given more insight into the lives of those around Annie and Dylan, and I loved this, honestly it was the side stories that kept me turning the

Sometimes you can run but eventually you get found. Annie tried and succeeded for a little while until the past caught up with her. Hiding from an abusive husband and finally having moved on with Dylan; this time around she didn’t have to deal with it alone.

This book was even better than the first! The Truth About Him picks up exactly where the first book left off. Annie and Dylan continue their relationship, and while Annie has opened herself up to Dylan, Dylan begins to build walls to keep Annie out. Dylan's past has become his present, and all of the issues he has with his dad and his brother become reasons for him to leave Annie alone.

At the end of Everything I Left Unsaid, things were pretty dramatic and this book starts off the same way. Things are not going good for Annie. Luckily, she has Ben in her corner.

That scene was pretty intense but it only brought forth the truth of the situation and that is Dylan and Annie...they just work. Unfortunately, it takes some time for Dylan to make peace with "his darkness".

Dylan and Annie also have to make peace with what happened and what's going on with their relationship. Dylan's

This was so good. Enjoyed it as much as the first book and I hope there's more. Molly O'Keefe's writing is spellbinding and captures such beautiful imagery and the emotions of - Annie and Dylan - two beautifully broken people who struggle to shed their lies and fears while daring to believe in hope, happiness and love.

After the action-packed first few chapters that nicely resolve the cliffhanger from the first book, it took me a beat to enjoy this one as much as I did its predecessor--mostly because the alternating first person POV is now Dylan's, and as well done as that is, I missed being in Annie's head. But I ended up really, really liking where the story went, particularly the arc involving the rift between father and son, and a brief, unexpected moment--that both reveals and intrigues a great deal--outs ...more
If you've read the first part, you certainly want to reach now the second part. It's a great HOT book, and I give this five stars because I just like the story. And I have high hopes for further parts!

Thank you to everyone who has reached out asking about Max and Joan and whether they would have a book. The answer is YES!!! Burn Down the Night will be out sometime this spring/summer. And so far I can tell you it's very very wrong in all the best ways. Joan's kidnapped Max and is keeping him handcuffed to a bed - but somehow it is Joan who is doing everything Max asks.

I will let you know more details when I have them. Thank you again for all your enthusiasm for these books.

It definitely was as good as the first book. It would have been a lot better but the ending felt rushed to me. It's still very good though and I'm definitely looking forward to more books in this series. I'm hoping Blake will get a book.

A few months ago I read, Everything I Left Unsaid and loved it. The Truth About Him is book two in this duology. This can’t be read as a stand alone. I highly recommend these two books! I gave the first one a B+ and this one gets a solid A from me. The romance, the suspense, the erotic darker edge – so well done.

I don’t really want to go into a lot of detail about what happens in this book because I’m afraid it will spoil things. Annie has escaped her abusive husband, or so she thinks, by moving

The Truth About Him
is the second book in this emotional duet. Ms. O'Keefe took me on quite a journey and I loved every page of it. Annie had met Dylan via an abandoned phone found in her dilapidated trailer back in Everything I Left Unsaid. He'd asked her to watch the old man a few trailers down for a little cash on the side. What started out as that, turned into a love story defying all odds.

The Truth about him begins right after Everything I left unsaid so you can't read it as a stand-alone.

Be sure to add both books in your TBR and read this fantastic story.
With Everything I left Unsaid and the truth about him, Molly O'Keefe accomplishes to give us quite a unique story.
First in its execution and then in the story she tells. Mixing mystery, suspense, danger, secrets, erotica, romance, both books are extremely well balanced, both are utterly addictive.

“It all seemed so stupidly dramatic. Previous to this one night, nothing in her life had much happened and then suddenly it was as if she landed in a soap opera. And now the soap opera had a motorcycle club and a drug dealing child rapist.”

Yep…gone are the days of Everything I Left Unsaid. This sequel takes the storyline in a different direction for sure. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though. I really appreciated the author’s attempt to keep the content
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.

This book is a direct continuation on from the amazing Everything I Left Unsaid. That book blew me away when I read it, and I dearly wish I could have read this one immediately after, but sadly I had to wait, which meant that I lost some of the momentum that built up over the first book - which was incredibly intense and had me DESPERATE for more - but

So I really enjoyed the first book, but this one was a toughie for me to rate. On the one hand I liked reading more about these characters but on the other hand I felt like this book just really dragged. It really could have been condensed into like 5 chapters and then added to the first book. I feel like the author had so much momentum going in the first book and then lost it in this one. So in the end it didn't capture me like the first one did but I'll definitely be reading more from this aut ...more

The first book was really about Annie and her journey of escaping her former life and the beginning of this book pretty much takes care of her former story. It then focuses on the now with her and the fact that she is taking charge of her life going forward. She is no longer going to be timid and let people push her around, her new outlook is being assertive and her own boss.

This book is really more focused on Dylan and his family that he hasn’t really spent time with after getting out of jail.

“But love is a knife that really only cuts you one way, and that’s deep.”

The Truth about Him delivers us straight back into the story where Everything I Left Unsaid left off and to say we were eager to pick up this book is an understatement as we inhaled and loved the first book! Everything I left Unsaid was a fabulous read so we couldn’t wait for Annie and Dylan’s story to finally come together.

There is so much going on in this story, so many great insights, that I don’t know where to start. So I’ll start with my thoughts at the end of the book – LOVE IS WORK and you HAVE TO WORK for YOUR HEA.

Molly O’Keefe ends her first book, Everything I Left Unsaid, with a whopper cliffhanger. With an intention, she spends no time resolving that issue fairly quickly at the beginning of this book and then the story jumps right into building a relationship on the foundation of t

“Love is a knife that really only cuts one way, and that’s deep.”

The Good : I loved Dylan and Annie. Full stop. They are one of those couples that you think about long after you finish the book. Answers are given, characters and their true motivations are exposed, and nothing is an “easy” answer. I think all of the players here are complex and drawn well. Ms. O’Keefe’s prose is still among the best I’ve seen of romance writers activ

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
