Everything I Left Unsaid
I know I keep saying this, but there’s nothing better than a well written sizzling romance to get you out of one hell of a book slump, and there’s nothing better than sneakily reading a romance during class. But Molly made that extremely hard for me to do, with the constant awws and smiles that I involuntarily kept giving.
This is one book you should seriously go blind into- because that is what the book is really about. When Annie finds a phone in her new trailer, and Dylan on the phone, things changed for both of them. Most of their relationship develops on calls, and they don’t physically even meet for more than half of the book, which adds so much to the mystery of it. Both Dylan and Annie are people with a tough past, and a huge part of their relationship is built on secrets and anonymity, them just merely being the better yet rare version of themselves with each other, which is why I suggest not knowing much about this book, because the mysterious element of it makes it much sexier.
I am thoroughly impressed at how Keefe has managed to write half a story based on phone conversations, and yet make it so captivating and building a heart scorching sexual tension. This whole scenario of a relationship over phone calls can turn weird and creepy real fast, but if it was anything in the case of Dylan and Annie, it was mind blowingly sexy and just meant to be.
I absolutely adore both our protagonists, both Annie and Dylan are extremely brave and protective, but also flawed with whatever they have gone through in their pasts. They complement each other so well, like two perfect pieces of a puzzle. One one hand, while Dylan guided and supported Annie into being the bolder , more experienced version of herself that she wanted to, Annie just made see that he was not unloved and alone, and they are perfect together. Perfect. I loved Annie, she’s such a strong heroine, coming from a tragic past and so bravely trying to rebuild herself. There have been so many instances where I have related to her, usually on smaller details and observations, but they just make me feel much closer to her. Dylan, on the other hand, I literally have no words for. He is the perfect dream boyfriend for me, mysteriously sexy with a dangerous edge that gave me legitimate goose bumps, but he’s also so sweet with Annie- though mainly, he’s the possessive and protective alpha male, that just had me physically sighing at times.
Even though I love them both, and I felt connected to them both, I never felt like I was a part of them- I never felt I was Annie or with Dylan, and while that might be a personal feeling, I actually enjoyed in reading about them but always from one feet apart, like their story was just theirs.
