Review – Wait For It (Everything I Left Unsaid #4) by Molly O’Keefe

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.

I read a lot of good books.  I don’t read as many great books.  M. O’Keefe writes great books.  I won a copy of Burn Down the Night.  I had never read anything by O’Keefe.  I loved that book so much, I pounced when I was offered Wait For It for review and it was everything I expected.  I stayed up well into the wee morning hours to finish Wait For It because I just couldn’t put it down.

O’Keefe’s characters are gritty, not always likeable but so very real.  Even Tiffany and Blake don’t like each other in the beginning.  Their first meeting is not good.  When Blake assumes the worst of Tiffany she lets him and takes the money he offers her to stay away from his family.  She’s made so many bad choices and his nasty attitude are reasons enough for her to do something she’d had no intention or inclination to do.  The reader sees the only the worst of Blake but it’s not as clear what Tiffany’s character is.

O’Keefe doesn’t just, in a chapter or two, tell us Blake and Tiffany have hearts of gold and are really perfect together.  No, she tortures us with small changes, real life reactions and stressful external influences so that it takes quite a while to get through everything and realize they really do deserve better from life.  Getting to know these two is messy, hard and so worth the trip.  I cried frequently for the unfairness of life and the horrible things humans often go through.  O’Keefe is a master at exploring the obstacles put in our way and those we plant there ourselves in the attempt to protect our fragile hearts.  After so much back and forth, good and bad, I was so happy to see not only Tiffany and Blake but her kids and his mother find happiness as a family.  They’ve all earned it the hard way.
