The only thing that matters to me is rescuing my sister from the drug-cooking cult that once enslaved us both. I’ve run cons my whole life, and I’ll use my body to get whatever I need. Max Daniels is the last connection I have to that world, the one person reckless enough to get involved. Besides, now that his brothers have turned on him, he needs me too.

The deal was supposed to be simple: a place to hide in exchange for rescuing my sister. Now he’s my prisoner. Totally at my mercy. But I’m the one captivated. Enthralled. Doing everything he asks of me until I’m not sure who’s in control.

We both crave the heat. The more it hurts, the better. But what if Max wants a different life now, to leave the game . . . to love me? I thought I knew better than to get burned. Now I’m in too deep to pull away. And the crazy thing is . . . I don’t want to.

Miranda’s Review

Dangerous, sexy, thrilling, hauntingly dark … just a few ways to describe the overwhelming emotions that the Everything I Left Unsaid series evokes. Burn Down the Night is the third book and M. O’Keefe took everything to the next level. More danger. More thrills. Higher stakes. It’s sexier, darker, and more haunting.

“Mutual assured destruction. You and I have sex, get involved in that way…both of us burn. Both of us. We’ll tear each other apart until there’s nothing left to walk away from.”

I literally couldn’t put this book down. I binge read every word. I didn’t know exactly what to expect going in, I knew from the first two books that Joan had some hardcore secrets, but the truth is pure insanity. And Max? I was pretty torn on whether I hated him or loved him in the end of book two — he’s not a good guy — but from the very moment I started down the road with these characters I knew I wouldn’t be able to stop.

“The lies and the show—I don’t want it. I want you. Fucked up and crazy. I want you.”

This book gutted me. Ripped open my insides and left me bleeding. I was terrified to get to the ending, I honestly don’t think I could have survived a cliff-hanger … not for Max and Joan. They’d had so very little good in their lives, having found each other even as volatile as their relationship was, it was theirs. I needed them to have a happily ever after.

“You’ve got one speed, Joan. One setting. Annihilate. That’s it. Burn it all. And I don’t want to be burned.”

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.
