WAIT FOR IT (Everything I Left Unsaid #4)

WAIT FOR IT                                MOLLY O'KEEFE

In a blistering novel of raw emotion and desire, a tormented woman teaches an alpha male that money can’t fix everything...but love can.

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.

     An incredibly good story that hooked me from the start.  This is a story of a young woman who came from a starved love and affection background.  From the people who should have loved her the most, her parents.  What attention she did get was covered in scorn, judgment, and a lot of conditions.
     So, when Tiffany went off to college and a guy on a beach, isolates her from the rest of the party and gives her his undivided attention that seems exciting and new.  The thing is Phil was a wolf in sheep’s clothing.  Their relationship was good for a while and when he found out she was pregnant all the better.  He now had his own little family.  The married and it all went to tell after that.
     Phil started lording over her and pushing her yelling and after the baby was born hitting her.  She reached out to her family but the turned their backs on her.  By their third child, it was awful.  Finally, Tiffany had enough.  She left and ran to the neighbors Annie and Dylan’s for help.  Turns out Dylan knew Phil and his family.  You see Phil had always told her his parents were both dead and he didn’t get along with his brother.
     All lies turn out his mom was still alive and he had a sister, Tina who is older and an older brother, Blake.  They had no idea Phil even had a family.  When things were at an emergency level where Dylan had forced Phil to never come back to the trailer park again that is when she knew she needed to reach out for help again.  She needed food for her kids, money to survive, but most of all to move someplace where Phil couldn’t find them so they could be safe.  She figured her pride would have to take a hit.  She would ask Phil’s family for help for her kid’s sake.
     Dylan had set up the meeting at Annie’s trailer to talk.  But when Blake Edward arrived he came loaded for bear.  He has bailed his brother out of so many scrapes that he was prepared to write a big fat check and demand that she and her so-called kid’s stay away from his family.  Just walk away forever.  What he wasn’t prepared for was this young, beautiful, brave but scarred, warrior, woman to face off with him. 
     Tiffany was so pissed that he thought he could just walk into Annie’s home and think he could be such a pompous ass.  But most of all rude and all alpha make toward the two of them.  That he could just brush her and her kids under the carpet.  So, she upped the ante and ate her pride.  She needed to get her kids someplace safe and away from Phil’s family too.  Because even with the money they were no better than him.  Their strikes hit you in a much more personal way.  Where her children were her heart.
     A year goes by after their transaction and Phil found them twice since then.  After sneaking the children out of the bathroom window this time, they make it over to Annie’s to get help.  Not figuring the time of year she doesn’t realize that they would be having a party for the holidays.  She needs a place to stay and a good lawyer.  Not knowing Blake and his family would be there so when he starts to yell at her and grabs her arm and she tries to break away and he grips harder she cold cocks him.  Running back out to her car to where her kids are waiting.
     When he runs after her he figures out she really has kids and by the cockeyed way, she was dressed that there was something seriously wrong for her to be out so late.  He wants to help.  She is not buying it.

     She is not willing to take it.  See if there can be a happy medium her fear and happy to accept help.  See if both can knock down each other’s high walls and allow each other to heal and be loved.  I give this: 5++++ stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
