Review: Wait for It by M. O'Keefe

I have reviewed M. O'Keefe's work many times on the blog, but I think this book has to rate as one of my favorite reads.  When I decided over the past few days to rekindle the blog, this was the first book out of probably 50 I've read in the past few months that I wanted to tell you about!

From the Publisher:

In a blistering novel of raw emotion and desire, a tormented woman teaches an alpha male that money can’t fix everything . . . but love can.

Tiffany: After fighting for a new life, I don’t want to play the victim anymore. However, with three kids to raise, I’m getting desperate enough to make a deal with the devil. My estranged brother-in-law, Blake, says he just wants to help, but he’s been trouble since I met him. I don’t know if I can believe this kinder, gentler Blake, and there’s a friction between us that has turned into the sweetest chemistry. He could be my salvation . . . or my downfall.

Blake: I haven’t always had Tiffany’s best interests at heart but I’m ready to make up for my sins. Besides, I can’t help admiring her: The girl’s a genuine survivor, tough and lean, with eyes of steel. But the more I get to know Tiffany, the more I want her. Every inch of her. Which means I’m about to make a bad situation a hell of a lot worse.

My Review:

Wait for It is the continuation of her series that began with Everything I Left Unsaid and probably the book I was most looking forward to reading about after the first book.  I love the opening premise of the book - the hero has spent years trying to clean up his brother's 'messes' and he thinks that the heroine was one of those messes... so much that he paid her off a year ago with $20K and expected to never see her again...

Of course we know that is a recipe for a spectacular future meet-up with so many possible outcomes...  especially since Tiffany has spent so long as an abused spouse and her ex-husband is still continuing to lie to his brother, Blake.  So much of it is Blake's fault for not investigating below the surface and believing a liar - a situation that is so familiar in cases where an abuser is hiding our 

M. O'Keefe is one facet of prolific writer, Molly O'Keefe's, personality - the one who explores darker and deeper relationships laced with more explicit sexual scenes and that voice both screams and whisper's in this final installment of the series.  Misconceptions, money and lust wage war with love, trust and potential redemption.  

I recommend this book for readers who are searching for a story with layers and twists and hot sex scenes.  I do caution you that there are trigger warnings for people who have been in abusive situations because M. O'Keefe leaves nothing unturned in this story.
