Burn Down the Night by M. O’Keefe
Review: 5 of 5 Stars
The Best Parts:
Get ready to get a cold glass of water to go with your hot flashes you are about to experience. I have read plenty of Molly’s work, but this one. Holy shit. Like damn. This story picks up right where the last one left off, and trust me. It doesn’t disappoint. Max and Joan’s story is definitely one to read that will have you flipping each page like a mad woman. What I love though about this story is that it isn’t what you expect. There is so much more than the hot and steamy sex. The chemistry and storyline is something that just sucks you in and keeps you there forever.
The Worst Parts:
Now for most people they may not like the sense of chemistry and the toxic relationship that is Max and Joan, but then again they wouldn’t be them without it. The fact that we get to see them at their purest and rawest forms makes it easy for people to realize that not every relationship is all butterflies. Some have crazy antics in them, and others have games, and some are truly normal. I love that this book pushes those boundaries while still giving us all the feels.
I can’t wait for the next book. Molly’s story seem to just get better and better every time I read them!
Molly O’Keefe has always known she wanted to be a writer (except when she wanted to be a florist or a chef and the brief period of time when she considered being a cowgirl). And once she got her hands on some romances, she knew exactly what she wanted to write.
She published her first Harlequin romance at age 25 and hasn’t looked back. She loves exploring every character’s road towards happily ever after.
Originally from a small town outside of Chicago, she went to university in St. Louis where she met and fell in love with the editor of her school newspaper. They followed each other around the world for several years and finally got married and settled down in Toronto, Ontario. They welcomed their son into their family in 2006, and their daughter in 2008. When she’s not at the park or cleaning up the toy room, Molly is working hard on her next novel, trying to exercise, stalking Tina Fey on the internet and dreaming of the day she can finish a cup of coffee without interruption.
Dishing It Out, her last Harlequin Flipside won the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice award for best Flipside in 2005.
Her Superromance Baby Makes Three won the RT Reviewer’s Choice for best Superromance in 2006. L-length Her novella, “The Christmas Eve Promise” in The Night Before Christmas won the RITA in 2009. And her full length contemporary romance CRAZY THING CALLED LOVE won the RITA in 2013.
