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.

What a yummy surprise Everything I Left Unsaid was! Sometimes you can look at a cover and get an idea of what kind of book you are about to read. Sometimes, you have to read the synopsis. Sometimes, you see the cover and read the synopsis and the book still takes you in a completely different direction than what you anticipated. That’s what happened here for me.
 
This was a dark and more suspenseful tale. A story of a woman on the run and a mysterious man that helps her find a strength in herself she never before possessed.
 
Annie immediately appealed to me, she’s a very interesting character. She’s not open and honest with others, but she’s quite honest with herself. She sees herself pretty clearly, knows she has things she wants to change and kind of grabs those scary things by the horns.  I admired that about her. Even when I was questioning that bravery and what would come of it.
 
Dylan comes into her life by complete mistake and surprise, but there is an innate interest and connection between them.  A interest and connection I ate up like my favorite flavor of ice cream.  They both live inside so many secrets and lies, I was so eager to find out all the details of those.  Some are fairly evident, others not so. Those secrets threaten the fragile life that Annie is building for herself, though.
 
Outside of Annie and Dylan’s strange relationship, O’Keefe writes a unique cast of side characters. All with interesting stories of their own.
 
Everything I Left Unsaid is an exciting, page turning read full of intrigue, danger and sexiness. I can hardly wait for the next book!

About M. 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.
