Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense/Mystery
For fans of Christina Lauren and Jodi Ellen Malpas comes the next novel in M. O'Keefe's breathtakingly sexy series about a woman called into a journey of the heart, body, and soul.
We played our roles, told each other lies.
But now Dylan is no longer just a mysterious deep voice on the other end of the line. We're face-to-face and our relationship is very, very real.
We still have secrets—but so much is crystal clear:
The thrilling danger.
The raw, naked desire.
The need to keep feeling the way he makes me feel. Forever.
Dylan is putting up walls, trying to keep me safe, but he can't shut me out. He has seen my darkness and rescued me. Now it's my turn, if only he will let me.

4 "Forgiveness is the Path to Love" Stars!
Rounding out the romantic suspense story that began with the answering of a stranger's cell phone, THE TRUTH ABOUT HIM provides just that, more color around the secrets and dangerous life that Dylan and his family have led. We also get some closure as to Annie's prior life.
Please note though that this is the second book in a series that starts with Everything I left Unsaid, and which must be read first. The good news is that we do reach a romantic HEA at the end of this book, though it does appear that there will be a third book in the series that is planned to be released in the spring or summer of next year which will tell the story of Max (Dylan's MC President brother) and Joan (Annie's neighbor from Book 1).
Picking up right in the midst of the suspenseful dangerous situation that Annie finds herself in book 1, Annie's desires and willingness to fight for a future are tested and refined. She soon will need to learn if it's possible to ever outrun what she left behind.
Dylan, in turn, finds himself in an equally game changing situation. Having learned to subdue all feelings, he's finally found the one person who will not take no for an answer. Soon she will challenge his apathy, and both will need to decide if Dylan's past has ruined him for true love or whether what he has left to give is worth fighting for.
Moreover, the secondary characters, Max and Ben (Dylan's father) play equally important roles in helping Dylan realize the influence that his past is having on his relationship with Annie. Is it ever possible to conquer your ghosts, especially when they are as haunted as the ones that follow Dylan? Moreover, is it ever possible to build a true HEA, when your initial foundation was built on lies--albeit arguably necessary ones?
Although I have to admit that I enjoyed the flow of Book 1 better--perhaps due to the heightened element of the unknown--THE TRUTH ABOUT HIM was still a solid read that provides closure and ends with the kind of message I always enjoy from my romantic reads (hope). This being my 5th book by Molly O'Keefe and each having a slightly different but nonetheless enjoyable feel, I can honestly say that Ms. O'Keefe has won a place on my must read list. I can't wait to discover Max's and Joan's story next!
