On the northeast side of town, there is a house.

The house was once magical, filled with love and joy and plans for the future.

Inside its walls are many things that belong to me — my books, the china from my mother on my wedding day, the beautiful cage once home to two birds, now empty, just like me.

And a man.

A man who also belongs to me.

A man I no longer wish to keep.

A man who, no doubt, has not slept, though the sun is rising. Because the house where he waits is where I laid my head to rest every night for eight years. Until last night.

No one who knows me would believe Charlie Pierce, the quiet, bookish girl who never made waves is pulling out of the driveway of a man who isn’t her husband.

But they don’t know me at all.

I don’t even know me.

Not anymore.

They say there are two sides to every story, and I suppose in most cases, that’s true. But the one I live inside of? It has three.

On the northeast side of town, there is a house.

But there is no longer a home.


Review: What He Doesn’t Know by Kandi Steiner

My Thoughts…

There have been a few new books releases I’ve been really excited for lately and What He Doesn’t Know by Kandi Steiner has definitely been one of those!  The blurb alone made me say to myself, YOU NEED THIS BOOK!!  I love angst and heartbreak, the bigger the heartbreak the better! It’s my happy place.  Ms Steiner didn’t disappoint with What He Doesn’t Know!  I was on the edge of my seat reading wondering what was going to happen! When was the other shoe going to drop? When was the you know what going to hit the fan!!  She sucked me in from the prologue and never let go!  I am so happy I took a chance on this book.  I’ve read another series from Ms Steiner that I didn’t love and she redeemed herself and I will be waiting to see what else she has in-store for us!

Could you imagine being so happy and in love and one event changes everything.  This is what happened to Charlie and Cameron. They were in a happy marriage but young and successful and just a couple of years later it’s like they are suffocating.  Once best friends as husband and wife they now seem like complete strangers.  Reese was Charlie’s brother’s best friend and now he has returned back to their home town and what it causes Charlie to open her eyes and see what her life has become.  She’s always had a crush on Reese and now they are older it seems the age difference that was always a barrier is gone and now just one thing stands in their way, Charlie’s husband.

What He Doesn’t Know will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions.  I cannot wait to read the second book in the series to see how this all plays out.  This is a two book series that is told in alternating points of views.  This was a huge 5 star read for me and one I would highly recommend!!  I’ve been in a book fund for several months and this book was exactly what I needed to help pull me out!!!

About Kandi Steiner

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
