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.

Annie and Dylan are back, hotter than ever but with still a pretty big life mess to work through.  A mess that gets a whole lot messier before they figure out how to clean it up.

O’Keefe gave us a dual POV that really allowed us to dig in deep to Dylan’s mind.  He’s had an interesting life and how he reconciles and fights his past was something I enjoyed getting first hand.  Dylan is a man who struggles with his position in life and in Annie’s life.  He wants nothing more than to be by her side, care for her, love her…but he’s unsure of what love really is and if his love is even a good thing for Annie.

 

Annie, on the other hand, has to reconcile her choices.  She needs to come to terms with what those choices have led to and who her heart wants.  I loved the gumption she had when dealing with Dylan.  She sees life and family in such a different light than him and wasn’t willing to let his apprehension get in the way of what she thought best.  Something Dylan isn’t used to…people telling him what to do.

Oh, God, I tried not to smile. But I loved her like this. Unchained and furious. It was pure. A mess, but it was a pure mess.

As the two tread the waters of love, the dangers around them never cease and it’s one exciting ride!

For as opposite as these characters are, O’Keefe balances them together remarkably well.  Especially in a world full of power, greed, betrayal and hurt.    O’Keefe is a powerful author.  One I will be on the lookout for in the future, especially if some of the side characters from this series get a little more attention!

 

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.
