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.

Everything I Left Unsaid and The Truth About Him by Molly O’Keefe combined tell a twisty, bendy, sexy story that in the end made my heart full!

I didn’t think answering someone else’s cellphone would change my life. But the stranger with the low, deep voice on the other end of the line tempted me, awakened my body, set me on fire. He was looking for someone else. Instead he found me.

This is the start of the blurb to Everything I Left Unsaid and it instantly grabbed my attention. I am very glad I read these two books together and I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing the complete story.

The plot in this one is full of twists and turns so I am going to keep this short so I don’t spoil anything in book 1 or book 2.

I will say the reason Dylan calls that phone is layered and it builds as the story unfolds in both books. Emotions run deep even when you want to bury them and family is the tie that binds even when you don’t want it to be. This last part applied to both characters (and was so enjoyable to witness unfolding throughout).

Annie finds herself in a trailer park answering a stranger’s phone and is so drawn to the man on the other end that the reader is pulled right into the story. Dylan is also affected by the calls, something he never expected as this is not the first time he has called this phone.

But a ten-minute conversation with a stranger and he was hard as steel. His body primed. Ready. Craving more.

As Annie’s bond grows with Dylan so does that of the readers. As a reader, I so wanted to know more about the mystery man on the other end.

It’s just a phone, I thought, despite its near pulsing heat in my hand. Its strange alive-ness. It echoed in me, a foreign nature that was not entirely my own. Something hot-blooded and impulsive.

When Dylan finally reveals himself, it was so well done; you truly believe this man who swore he would never bring her to him would in this case, you understand he had no options.

When Annie and Dylan meet, the connection grows even deeper and though warned off from Dylan, Annie knows this connection is something she wants to explore.

“I’m not scared of you,” she said. “I’ll never be scared of you.”
“Well, I’m sure as shit scared of you,” he said.

This books has many sexy moments as Dylan helps Annie explore her sexuality.

I loved that this story was told in dual POV. Annie and Dylan both have pasts that affect them in the moments we interact with them and both had reasons for being closed down at times, so hearing and experiencing both added to the story for me.

In the end, I not only loved the happy for Dylan and Annie, I loved the closure both obtained.
