RUIN YOU – An M. O’Keefe Review

img_3778

It’s Simon’s turn to pay his debt. And as any good suspense, Bates, the man who saved Simon and his friends from jail time, knows just the task to make him pay. Find the daughter of one of the city’s darkest men. It’s a plan Simon easily sees come to fruition.

Simon has spent years hating the man responsible for his mother’s death. While not directly, the man shows no remorse for the families he puts at risk and now Simon is about to come after HIS family. As he digs through Penny’s past and tries to find her secrets, he finds something he didn’t plan on: his feelings for her. Now his debt is at risk. Does he tell Penny the truth and try to find a way out or does he risk losing her by handing her over to Bates?

Penny despises her father; he’s the reason her mother is stuck in jail and why Penny is hiding her true identity. The new stranger at her inn leaves her suspicious but she can’t deny her attraction to him. Does she let him in or is he after something more? Dropping her walls for Simon may risk more than she knows. And there’s more than just her own secrets lurking behind the truth.

I love the O’Keefe shows another side of that fateful night originally told in The Debt. Its so cool to see other characters’ points of view to one singular moment that changed all of their lives forever. But where Tommy and Beth’s duo-tale was dark and gritty, Simon’s story felt a little far-fetched and slow at times. Simon felt like he wanted to be bad and tough but seemed more like a man on a mission…only in his head. I liked the relationship between him and Penny but I honestly couldn’t believe her reaction when she discovered Simon’s true intentions. It felt rushed and forced and left me feeling a little bereft. While the beginning held danger, the middle held promise, unfortunately the ending fell just a little short for me. A quick fun read continuing the dark romance series!


This is the third contemporary romance title in The Debt series. Links for RUIN YOU, and the previous books in the series, are below. The first book in the series, Lost Without You, is FREE for a limited time!

BOOK BLURB:

Simon

The only thing that stands in the way of my revenge is her.

The lying scheming daughter of the man who killed my parents. She has the secrets I need to bring down her father.

And I’ll do anything to get them. I will lie to her. Steal from her. Use her.

Ruin her.

It helps that our chemistry is explosive.

What I’m not expecting is for her to be so sweet. And so strong.

So…irresistible.

Penny

After so many years of lying and hiding, I finally have a place to call home. With people I can call a family. The Paintbrush Inn is my life now, and I won’t let anyone ruin it.

When sexy and world-weary Simon checks in to the Inn, I never expect him to glance my way. I’ve spent my whole life blending into the background. Being overlooked and ignored. It’s been helpful, even though it’s lonely. And he’s way out of my league.

But our attraction is powerful. Undeniable.

Dangerous.

Because I can’t let anyone close. If the secrets I keep were to be revealed, my whole life would be destroyed. But something about Simon makes me break all my own rules. I’m letting him in to my home, my body, my life, never expecting he has his own secrets.

His own lies.

When the truth comes out, we’ll both be ruined.

WHERE I BELONG – An M. O’Keefe Review

It’s time for Tommy and Beth’s story to come to an end. Will the Debt be paid or will they have to run for their lives?

With their pasts seemingly behind them Beth and Tommy finally allow themselves to feel  in a way they’ve only dreamed. Tommy’s been stuck in a state of stasis after that fateful night at St. Joke’s. Losing Beth and with the Debt hanging over his head, he’s never allowed himself to wish. Wish for a future, wish for happiness, or even wish for Beth.

But up in the mountains, seemingly safe he finally allows his one true desire to come through. Can he wish of Beth, can he have Beth, can he love Beth? Finally? So he dives in, full swing and decides to give in to his desires for the first time since he wished for them as a teenager. Only to learn that Beth had been hiding her own secret.

For Beth, that last night at St. Joke’s is behind her..behind the costumes, the lights, and the drugs. But now that Tommy is back she can allow herself to be free and finally love the boy who’s saved her…agin and again. He’s helping her get clean, and helping her escape her harrowing childhood. But how can she fully decide to allow Tommy in to her heart when she knows their one safe haven will break them apart?

A seriously gritty and dark tale true to the usual tone of Molly O’Keefe. The Debt duet had me clinging to the edge of the pages just wanting to know what could possibly keep Tommy and Beth apart. These two needed happiness like no one I’ve ever read. And O’Keefe delivers it with intense passion, gripping scenes, and unending excitement.

THE DUET IS COMPLETE
Where I Belong by M. O’Keefe is NOW LIVE!

LOST_JKENNER1

THE GIRL I LOVED IS THE WOMAN I CAN’T HAVE

It was simple: Pay the debt and I stay out of jail. Pay the debt and I stay alive.

But I sacrificed it all for Beth.

I didn’t pay what I owed. I’m sure punishment is coming, but I can take it – as long as Beth is safe. Away from her mother and everyone else who would hurt her.

I gave it all up for two days with her. And it was worth it.

She always was.

THE SECRETS WE KEEP ARE WHAT TEARS US APART

We’re supposed to be done. Over. Tommy goes his way, I go mine. Cue the heartbreaking music.

I’m supposed to forget him, but I don’t think I can. And when the danger closes in on Tommy, we’re on the run again. From Bates. From my mother. From our past. And there are no safe places to hide.

Except one. And it’s the place that will hurt Tommy the most.

But maybe it’s time for me to face my past. My demons.

Maybe it’s time for me to save Tommy for once.

ALL DEBTS MUST BE PAID

Tommy

Seven years ago, I thought I could save Beth, the girl I loved from the monster who was supposed to take care of us. I thought I could keep Beth and all the other kids at St. Jude’s Home for Court Placed Juveniles safe.

I failed. Badly. Now we all have blood on our hands and owe a dangerous man a very dangerous debt. We don’t know when he’ll come calling for payment, but when he does – we pay, or we suffer.

When my turn comes, I’m ready for anything.

Except seeing Beth again.

LOVE IS NEVER FREE

Beth

No one ever tells you that the cost of having your dreams come true is literally every single other part of your life. Yes, I’m a huge pop star these days, but I’m pretty much a mess, too.

I’ve spent my life hiding behind disguises, make-up and costumes, all to protect myself from the kind of pain that comes from revealing your true self to someone.

I did that once. With Tommy. The only person I ever loved. It didn’t turn out so well.

And now, with everything else falling apart around me, I’m suddenly in the backseat of his car.

Being kidnapped.

And the past we’ve both tried to run from is catching up with us.

Contains The Debt: A Prologue and 50,000 more words in the continuation of Tommy and Beth’s story

LOVE AND SECOND CHANCES ARE NEVER FREE

For the five kids who live at St. Jude’s Home for Court Placed Juveniles, life is a nightmare.

Carissa, the youngest, has been there the longest. And barely speaks.

Rosa is sixteen and pregnant.

Simon keeps his head down and studies, hoping to get back the life he lost.

Beth and Tommy, in the middle of the darkness, have found each other, and all they want is to be together. But when they get caught making out at school, it puts everyone in danger. Tommy is used to the beatings from their foster father, but when Beth is singled out for punishment, Tommy can’t sit back and let it happen.

AND ALL DEBTS MUST BE PAID

What happens that night rips apart the lives of the five teenagers forever.

After the blood has been spilled, a bargain is made. A deal with the devil that should have solved things. It should have fixed everything.

But nothing is free – not love, not innocence, and certainly not freedom. And sooner or later, all debts must be paid…

LOVE AND SECOND CHANCES ARE NEVER FREE

For the five kids who live at St. Jude’s Home for Court Placed Juveniles, life is a nightmare.

Carissa, the youngest, has been there the longest. And barely speaks.

Rosa is sixteen and pregnant.

Simon keeps his head down and studies, hoping to get back the life he lost.

Beth and Tommy, in the middle of the darkness, have found each other, and all they want is to be together. But when they get caught making out at school, it puts everyone in danger. Tommy is used to the beatings from their foster father, but when Beth is singled out for punishment, Tommy can’t sit back and let it happen.

AND ALL DEBTS MUST BE PAID

What happens that night rips apart the lives of the five teenagers forever.

After the blood has been spilled, a bargain is made. A deal with the devil that should have solved things. It should have fixed everything.

But nothing is free – not love, not innocence, and certainly not freedom. And sooner or later, all debts must be paid…

EXCERPT:

“What do you want, Tommy?” she breathed. So close. So beautiful. With her free hand she took off her glasses and tossed them on the ground. Her eyes, lined in black liner raked over me.

And mine raked over her.

“You,” I said, so raw I was practically inside out. “Just once.”

She laughed low in her throat. “You have a few questions you want answered, do you?” she asked.

“Don’t you?”

“God yes.”

She stepped forward until she was nearly touching me. It took my inhale for my chest to brush hers. I exhaled and our bodies retreated. She inhaled and we touched. Exhaled and retreated.

We each did it again. And then again. Breathing each other in, in turns. Finally it wasn’t enough and I stepped toward her, and my cock pressed against her stomach and she pushed against me. Her breasts and belly imprinted on my skin.

“One time,” she said. “One time and we go back to our lives and get on with things. I’m going to forget you, Tommy. And you’re going to forget me.”

I doubted it, but I wasn’t going to argue. Not with my dick pushed up against the tight muscles of her stomach. Not with her breath, sweet from the pop and the candy she’d eaten, making me crazy.

“I’m serious, Tommy,” she said as if she could read my mind. “I don’t want to be hurt anymore, and I really, really don’t want to hurt you anymore. Promise you’ll forget me.”

“I promise,” I said, because when threatened with the idea of hurting her, I’d agree to anything to stop that. “I’ll forget you, right after I fuck you.”
