I have been an avid fan of the books set in this world (Everything I Left Unsaid, The Truth About Him & Burn Down the Night) and was thrilled to learn that Tiffany and Blake (who both appear in the first book) would be getting an HEA. When we first met Tiffany, she was living in a trailer with her abusive husband and her children. Her situation was hellish. Blake is her abusive ex-husband’s brother, one who immediately thinks that Tiffany is angling for family money. Their relationship is more than contentious, mostly because of Blake’s attitude. I admit to wondering if O’Keefe could make me believe that things would work out for these two.
Much like the other books in this series, Wait for It is filled with hot and steamy erotic tension, especially given the discord between Tiffany and Blake in the beginning of the book. Blake isn’t happy that he wants Tiffany and is less happy when he realizes how poorly he has treated her and her children - who are his family. Many of their initial sexual encounters have a bit of an angry feel to them. As a result of Blake’s internal strife, this story is full of angst - and darkness. Much of the darkness surrounds Tiffany’s life situation which is at times starkly bleak.
Wait for It is an excellent addition to this series that has dark overtones, but has happily ever afters that make the pain worth the effort. I do want to caution readers that Tiffany’s situation with her ex-husband is awful and painful to read about. And Blake is rather nasty to her at the beginning of the book. I felt as if he redeemed himself well, but know I had questions about his personality while reading. M. O’Keefe has written a powerful, tension-filled and sexy romance where the main characters have significant hurdles to overcome in order to find love.
