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.

Miranda’s Review

Everything I Left Unsaid is the first of a two book series. Within the first chapter, I knew that Molly O’Keefe would be an author on my must read list. She instantly sucked me into the world of Layla and Dylan. By the end of the book I was desperate for book two and the rest of their story.

Annie is on the run. Her husband is a bad man with a heavy hand and no respect for her. Talk about a character to hate, her husband definitely didn’t leave any warm and fuzzy feelings behind. Annie is an amazing character. She’s been beaten and abused, yet she refuses to give up. When she finds a safe, yet sketchy, place to live she pulls up her bootstraps and does what she has to. If I were her, I would have just curled up in a ball, but this chick took a crap job, counted every penny, and did what needed doing. I love her character and her badassery.

“This is my body. Those are my bruises. The hands shaking on the sink, those are mine, too. Those words I said to that man, Dylan. Those were mine. My words. This is me.”

Dylan is the mysterious stranger on the other end of the phone. He needs a spy and she’s the one that answered. Lord have mercy, that man is hot with a capital H O T. Secretive. Aloof. Dangerous, even. He pushes Layla’s limits and digs in wanting to know all of her secrets. Dylan is reclusive and has many ghosts in his past, but the connection with Layla can’t be denied. The lengths he goes to for her push him out of his comfort zone and make you love him that much more. Totally swoon worthy alpha book boyfriend!

“We could all be so many things. Victims and criminals. Sinners and saints. Devious and virtuous.”

Lies. Secrets. Deception. Truth. Confessions. Honesty. Everything I Left Unsaid runs a gambit of blurred lines and emotionally charged reactions. I couldn’t put this book down and I will be impatiently waiting for book two, The Truth About Him.

“I think I’m already hurt, I thought. I think I’m bleeding and I don’t even know it.”

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.
