Title: Baby, Come Back
“Breathtaking and incredibly sexy, BABY, COME BACK is an emotional tour de force.”
Skye Warren, NYT Bestseller
A MAN WITH NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE
I sold my soul a long time ago to pay my father’s debts. Now my life is a prison: no friends. No family. Nothing it would hurt to lose.
I never should’ve touched Abby. I tried not to, but she is beautiful, magnetic, sexy. Everything I want but can’t let myself have.
UNTIL HE MET HER
She seduced me not knowing who I was or what I really do in the shadows. I should have resisted her, but I wanted to be the man Abby thought I was for as long as I could.
But all debts must be paid, sooner or later. And mine are paid with blood.
Now Abby knows who I am, what I am, and she’s run from me.
I would have let her go for her own good. But when I find out she’s carrying my baby — there’s nowhere she can hide.

I’m a huge M. O’Keefe fan for a number of reasons all of which she’s given us in Baby, Come Back.
Her characters are the edgiest. Abby and Jack are not your standard romance novel couple. They aren’t always likable, they don’t move from a sweet meet-cute into a relationship where some innocuous misunderstanding almost breaks them up until they realize they’re meant for each other.
Abby knows she’s beautiful but has no confidence in her smarts. Jack is very well read and smart but finds himself an enforcer for a criminal. Jack’s heart of gold is buried much more deeply than the average hero. As a matter of fact, he spends much of the book as more of an antihero.
After Abby witnesses Jack shoot a man, she must run to protect herself and the baby she carries. When Jack finds out he uses every means he can to find her. There’s no way Abby can know if Jack’s plan is to kill her or save her.
Ultimately, this is a romance novel and the outcome was preordained but the trip to get to the happily every after is bumpy, treacherous and emotionally wrenching. It takes talent to create such unique characters and situations, to put them in nail-biting, suspenseful situations and to get the reader to accept a non-traditional relationship. I read too many sappy romances so I love the novelty of O’Keefe’s stories.
