Wait For It - Molly O'Keefe Wait For It - Molly O'Keefe

Damn....I didn't think Molly O'Keefe could make Blake a good guy, but she did.

Blake Edwards has spent his life cleaning up his brother Phil's messes.  When Blake finds out that Phil actually has a wife and supposed kids he goes to confront her and offers to pay her off to never hear from her again.  Blake's mom has been through enough because of Phil, and she doesn't need some white trash making her life worse.  A year later when Blake runs into Tiffany at Dylan and Annie's place he is not happy.  What he doesn't realize at first is that Tiffany is running because of Phil.  After Tiff leaves, Blake has a bad feeling and goes to find her.  When he realize that she is not the white trash he thought she was, he feels guilty and wants to help her and "fix" another of Phil's messes.

Tiffany is scared of Phil because of the abuse he has inflicted on her in the past.  She has finally decided this has to stop and she wants to serve Phil divorce papers.  Blake wants to help her since he wasn't so helpful a year ago.  Tiffany reluctantly accepts his help.  Their time together sparks an interest that Tiffany hasn't felt in a long time.  I loved how Blake was able to help her find her O again! ;)

Slowly Tiffany and Blake had to relearn how to trust someone and also how to stand up to Phil.  I loved their final confrontation with Phil!  It was awesome!  I also loved how Tiffany and Blake slowly realized their commitment to each other.  For two people to have such underlying issues, it would have been wrong to quickly be together.  It was interesting in the beginning when they were just using each other, but then I loved when it shifted into something more.  I just adored how Blake was with Tiffany's kids.  Those kids were just adorable.  I also really enjoyed the interaction with Margaret and the rest of their family.

Overall, this was a wonderful and surprising story.  I actually ended up really liking Blake!  I'm sad to see this series end....great 5 star series with each book!

Burn Down the Night by M. O’Keefe $1.99
Burn Down the Night - Molly O'Keefe

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.

You Had Me At Christmas - Various Authors - My Thoughts
You Had Me At Christmas: A Holiday Anthology - Laura Florand,Jennifer Lohmann,Molly O'Keefe,Stephanie Doyle,Karina Bliss

You Had Me At Christmas is an anthology of 5 Christmas romance novellas.

The first one is Play by Karina Bliss and you know what?  I couldn't put it down!  *LOL*  I love me a good rock star story and this one was one.  But mostly told from the rock star wife's POV.  Yup, story about a married couple with two little kids.  He's a fresh made rockstar and she's his childhood sweetheart learning to cope with his newfound fame.

I found both characters believable and their insecurities and doubts worked for me.  As did their reconnection - especially the parts with their kids.  The sexy scenes were sexy and steamy, but it was the scenes where they were dealing with their kids and their rekindled desires at the same time that I really enjoyed.

A really good read!!

Now, on to the next one!

One Naughty Little Christmas was a lot of fun!  Starts off with a dating app and some sexy sexting between a business woman and an ex con on Christmas Day night, neither of them in the first blush of youth (Thank God!).  I found it an interesting pairing and their back and forth texting and sexting at the beginning of the story was well done and easy to follow.  I don't know that there was a lot of holiday in this one, other than the setting and the set up, but it left me with a smile on my face, so all was good!  :)

Twelve Kisses Until Christmas was ... well.. not my cup of tea.  Each time that I began to really enjoy the characters, they pulled some whiny bullcrap that made me go UGH.  It was really very much a New Adult type story and those I avoid like the plague.  The characters are never likable or sympathetic or not whining about something.  I think maybe the premise might have been better served with an actual novel where the characters could have been better fleshed out and maybe some positive sides shown?  Not much of Christmas or the holidays in this one either.  Anyway... the story wasn't great.

Snow-Kissed.  Well.  The first chapter left me so down and in despair that when the second chapter started the exact same way, it was fast forward time.  I want to read holiday stories that don't throw me into a pit of dark despair before maybe... MAYBE giving me my HEA or HFN ending.  I know miscarriages are devastating and tragic, but maybe not in a holiday romance novel?  Seeing as I DNFed this story, I have no idea if it actually held up the Christmas part of the bargain.

Let's hope the last one leaves me in a better frame of mind.

Christmas Eve: A Love Story.  It was an improvement, I'll give it that.  (Honestly, couldn't have been much worse than the DNF story.) I dunno. I wanted more joy, more happiness, more Christmassy feeling.  I wanted to finish the story with a smile and a happy sigh, but that didn't happen.  I think it could have.  The story of long-time friends to lovers is always an enjoyable trope for me, but this one was so - angst-laden? - that I found it hard to enjoy.  It was missing a sense of fun.

So, out of five novellas, I can honestly say that I enjoyed 2 of them.  Way too much 'woe is me' in the others.

What a shame.

Burn Down the Night - Molly O'Keefe
Burn Down the Night (Everything I Left Unsaid, #3)Burn Down the Night by Molly O'Keefe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Max and Joan are both so broken neither thinks they can be put together again but maybe, just maybe what they need is the love of the other. This story was so devastatingly beautiful I didn't want it to end. Absolutely my favorite in the series so far.

This book picks up with the explosion at the strip club, we find out what happened exactly and how Joan wound up with Max shot and bleeding in the back seat of her car.

How does a stripper go from dancing to blowing things up?
Burn Down the Night (Everything I Left Unsaid, #3) by Molly O'Keefe
Her sister Jennifer is being held by a cult leader Lagan and she is desperate to get her away from him and the other "wives" but her plan went to hell in a hand-basket when Max returned to the club to try and stop her from blowing everything up.

The story was ACTION PACKED in the first few pages that I couldn't believe all the things that were happening....and the most surprising was that it was just the beginning of the book. I was pulled in instantly and held captive right along with Max. Oh and the ride, the glorious, glorious ride was well worth the price of admission.

So a Half-Crazy Stripper and an MC President Almost Burn Down a Bar...
Burn Down the Night - Molly O'Keefe

“Save your act for other people. The lies and the show–I don’t want it. I want you. Fucked up and crazy. I want you.”
It was poetry. It was the sweetest thing anyone had said to me in a long time, and I had him handcuffed to a bed.

 

Insanely. Good. Burn Down the Night was a nonstop, action-packed hot mess with two badass characters and one impossible situation. Talk about a page-turner! I think I held my breath the entire time I was reading until the very final page when I knew all was well.

 

Wow. Molly O’Keefe has proven her writing ability over and over with this series. She’s become one of my go-to authors when I want romance with a dark edge but tons of heat and chemistry between the main characters. And this sizzling combination of Max and Joan worked on so many levels. They both came from very troubled beginnings with the odds stacked against them from day one–in their day-to-day lives and their relationship together–so they understood each other’s special kind of crazy.
