This is probably one the most intense, addictive, heart pounding, angst-ridden, books I’ve ever read! And thank you Kandi Steiner because that is my FAVORITE THING TO READ. THIS BOOK had me pulling my hair out, I didn’t know whether to cry or scream at times. Mix that with the beautiful writing and I was GONE. Absolutely done for. This is book 1 in the What He Doesn’t Know duet and HOLY CRAP I’m in physical pain from the ache I feel from needing book 2! I’m a HUGE fan of love triangles and cliffhangers, and I knew this would rip me apart when I read it. I had so many of those moments I crave when reading books in this genre. Anger, frustration, sadness, YES moments, NO moments, happy moments and all the butterfly moments.
Reese, Charlie, and Cameron are such complex characters, and even though you get to know more of Reese and Charlie in this book, I believe we will learn more about Cameron in Book 2. Or that’s the assumption I’m making! I have no clue, but he’s quite mysterious. I loved learning about Charlie and Reese and their backgrounds, they are such amazing characters that you want to hug and love in real life. At times I wanted to strangle Charlie, and slap Cameron. But Reese was always a constant for me. I love that man.
Okay… the WRITING, oh my goodness can this woman write a book. Every single nuance and attention to detail is perfectly placed as to draw the reader in deeper and deeper, it was so beautiful and raw. I went back several times to read my highlights just to let those words soak in, Kandi is such a unique and talented lady. There’s so much depth to her words, and even when your stomach drops and you feel empty, you’re still full because of the way this story inhabits you. It will fill you AND eat you up and spit you out, BOTH things will happen.
This story is a crazy, insane, blizzard of emotions, and it totally swept me off my feet in a whirlwind romance that I’m afraid will destroy me like I know it will destroy one of these characters. There’s also an almost angelic extension of this story that involves birds, and I know that sounds crazy, but it won’t when you read it. I absolutely loved how Kandi incorporated this bittersweet angle that runs parallel with the inner workings of these characters’ emotions. It’s just beautiful. Heartbreakingly beautiful. I haven’t cried this hard in a long time, and it felt good, but I’m crawling out of my skin for book two, I know I must be patient, just like these two men. I’m just scared of the inevitability for one of them. This is seriously one of my favorite books this year. 5 STARS. Must read.
About The Author
Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.
Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).
When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
