About the Author.....

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.  L-length Her novella, “The Christmas Eve Promise” in The Night Before Christmas won the RITA in 2009. And her full length contemporary romance CRAZY THING CALLED LOVE won the RITA in 2013.

Elizabeth's Reviews 


"Change is a choice. It's long and it's slow." 


The Truth About Him is a stunning follow up to Everything I Left Unsaid. This read is raw and grips your heart in a vice as the truth is unveiled layer by layer. I was truly taken in by this fantastic read and I cannot wait to read more from this author!

At the conclusion of Everything I Left Unsaid, everything is left wide open. Annie and Dylan are in danger both physically and emotionally. As the physical danger subsides, the emotional trauma intensifies as both characters must find their way. The question remains: will they find their way together or apart? Annie is working hard to heal the brokenness she is harboring inside. Dylan wants to keep Annie beside him and yet, he feels like he will only bring her more pain and heartbreak. 
"But Annie deserved someone good. And I used to think I could be the guy to give it to her. But it looked like that was only a dream."

The mystery surrounding the supporting characters begins to surface to the forefront of the story. The plot is riddled with conflicts and the transformation each character takes along the journey is pivotal to the story. Every moment holds meaning and is emotionally exposed so that the reader experiences every heartbeat right along with the characters.
"I thought. It was a leap of faith. Scary as shit."

The physical connection between Dylan and Annie is quite unique. Annie is growing sexually and wants to explore every inch of Dylan. Although he is hesitant, due to his own insecurities, he submits to her and the combination is sexy, raw, and smoking hot! I simply couldn't get enough of these two together!

"Baby, I'm going to want to have sex with you until the day I die."

"I'm not letting you go."

Told in dual POV, The Truth About Him has a unique plot line and real characters (with all of the beautiful flaws and imperfections) to explore. The action is set at a moderate pace and coupled with the "sexy steam factor", I simply didn't want this one to end! 


"Because I am his. And only his."

Overall, The Truth About Him is a fantastic read. I thoroughly enjoyed Annie's transformation from Everything I Left Unsaid and was quite humbled by the love she found with Dylan. If you are a fan of flawed characters and second chance romance stories than this is the read for you. I only hope Ms. O'Keefe will continue this journey and expose more from the secondary characters. Because I, for one, simply cannot get enough!

Everything I Left Unsaid is like nothing I have EVER read. It has an impeccable blend of sexiness, mystery, action, intrigue, and romance all wrapped up into one power punch of a read! As I feel it is imperative for every reader to go into this one blind, I will avoid spoilers at all cost in this review.

"No one missed me. Or worried. Or wondered. I'd vanished and the world just kept spinning."
Annie is on the run and lands straight into a trailer park in the boonies of North Carolina. In order to escape her abusive husband, she has abandoned everything in order to survive. Moments after she has arrived in her new home (an RV trailer in the middle of a run down trailer park), she finds a phone. The phone rings and she meets Dylan. 

"Daniels was the beast. He was the bad guy in the stories. Some other asshole could be the hero, save the day and get the girl."

Dylan is a recluse living in a mansion in the mountains. He has always had someone "watching" the old man living in the trailer park. When a new girl answers the phone, he realizes there is something different about her. Dylan has scars (both emotionally and physically) that have caused him to want to hide away from the world. Can Annie be the angel he needs to drag him out of his hell?
"The rules he was breaking were piling up around his feet like metal shavings, razor sharp and about to cut them both."

Honestly, this book was such a surprise. It was a bit of a slow starter for me because I was simply trying to gather my bearings. And yet, as the pieces began to fall into place, I could not put it down. With Dylan's guidance, Annie is discovering who she is. Dylan awakens Annie's sexual desires and once the temptation is awakened in her, she doesn't want to stop. The amount of passion and tension in this read is the driving force of the plot. It is silent but deadly throughout each beat of each moment. There are so many questions just desperately waiting to be answered. The secondary characters play a significant role in the story and thoroughly enhanced the plot. Of course, I was dying to know what happened to Dylan to make him 'the beast" that he has become? Who is the old man in the trailer park? Will Annie finally be free from the demons of her past? Is love really possible through so much pain? Told in dual POV, Ms. O'Keefe keeps the intrigue building and the tension doesn't stop. Not only is this a clever plot with well crafted execution but the sexy factor is off the charts. This book has something for everyone!

"Carefully, as if he were a live bomb, I wrapped my arms around his shoulders. I was struck with the very real fear that nothing was going to be enough with him. Not ever."

Overall, I cannot rave enough about this read. However, be forewarned, you will want to have the next book handy as this one ends in a huge cliffhanger! Thankfully, I was able to get the second book loaded on my kindle before I even finished this one. I highly recommend this read to anyone who enjoys a sexy romance story with action, suspense, and a story full of heart! I am so glad that I read this book and I cannot wait to read more from this author!
