Left or right.
It’s that simple, and it isn’t simple at all.
If I turn left, the road will lead me back to the man I promised my life to, the one I’d imagined building a family with, the one who’s done everything in his power to get me back.
If I turn right, the road will take me to the man I loved first, the man who brought me back to life, the man who would do anything to keep me.
I knew the fork in the road was inevitable; it was the decision I never wanted to make between choices I didn’t know I had.
And I love them both.
My heart is destined to exist in two equal halves — one with each man. But one half beats stronger, the vein running deepest, and holds my choice in silence long before I know it for myself.
The realization of what I have to do, of the heart I have to break, just might break mine too.
Left or right.
All I have to do is take a breath and turn.
Tera’s 5+++ Blush Review
I’m not sure what Kandi Steiner did to my heart with this book, but what I do know is that it has all the feels. I was literally pissed off at everyone in this book in the beginning and was sure that killing off all the characters would have been the best way to go.
This book picks up right where What He Doesn’t Know ends, and you must read that book first. Kandi weaves a tangled web of the perfect love triangle turned rectangle, and nothing but a big, emotional, hot mess.
“The best man for her isn’t even playing, Reese, ” he said, making his way down the stairs. “If he was, neither of us would stand a chance.”
It was often painful seeing Reese and Cameron vie for Charlie’s affection and my jaw hit the floor several times with a plot that I just didn’t see coming. My heart broke. It swooned. It got ragey. I found so many flaws in all of these characters, but I saw every single one come out better in the end. Charlie finally gets her happily ever after, but as much as I could gush over who she ends up with, I would never spoil that angst for you!
Kandi Steiner has yet to disappoint. She just seems to get better and better. If you want to meet your next one-click author, Kandi is IT!
Stephanie’s 5 Blush Review
“The truth was simple, I loved them both.”
What He Always Knew is the conclusion of Kandi Steiner’s amazing duet. You must read What He Doesn’t Know first. This has been my first Kandi Steiner book/duet experience. I am literally speechless. She has told a story in such a way it will make you crazy (in a good way)!
This has certainly been a wild ride. As the story concludes, secrets are revealed. Emotions are high. The air is tense. And the angst! Let me tell you the angst is insane!
What He Always Knew picks up where the first book left off. Cameron is fighting with all that he has to keep Charlie. Is he too late? Charlie seems so intent on her decision to choose Reese, her childhood crush. Cameron asks for two months to prove to Charlie that he is the one worth choosing. Cameron steps out of his comfort zone and begins to do what he must to prove to Charlie that he is the one who is worthy of her.
“I believed her, and I knew that was what I needed to hold onto –that love. I had to bring it back to life from where it hung on with futile breaths now.”
Reese is not happy about Charlie’s decision to allow Cameron this chance, but he knows that he may lose Charlie if he doesn’t agree. Reese gives Charlie the “space” that she needs to make her decision. Although there were plenty of encounters and disruptions during that “space.”
“I was giving Cameron the chance to keep me, but it was Reese who held my heart now.”
Charlie feels so many emotions. She never in her life thought that she would be a cheater. She considers herself a selfish woman because of loving two men. How did this happen? She is conflicted in the many roles she plays – a wife, a lover, a teacher, a daughter, and a torn woman.
The chemistry between Charlie & Cameron, Charlie & Reese is very strong, although their dynamics are very different. The passion is also in abundance. You think you know who she will choose, but you don’t. The story is unpredictable. The twists and turns leave you exacerbated, angry and then speechless! I was on the edge of my seat for the last 20% of the story. I think my heart stopped during those last few chapters.
What an amazing ride this duet has been! I must say that my emotions certainly got a work out and my kindle was on the receiving end of some choice words! I loved this story and I am officially a new fan of Kandi Steiner!
“The best man for her isn’t even playing, Reese,” he said, making his way down the stairs. “If he was, neither of us would stand a chance.”
