Praise for Molly O’Keefe

The Boys of Bishop Novels

Wild Child

“If there is one contemporary romance novel you must read in 2013, this is it … this book,
this book
 … I could go on and on … but I will just end with this: not only was the plot beautiful but the writing was as well.”

Love’s a State of Mind

“One of my favorite things about [O’Keefe’s] books is the way they refuse to shy away from messy, complicated characters and relationships.
Wild Child
is no different in that regard.… It is a testament to O’Keefe’s skill as a writer and a storyteller that she imbues Jackson and Monica’s stories (as a fledgling couple and as individuals) with a tremendous amount of emotional depth and sensitivity.… O’Keefe can bring characters … into vivid and compelling life as they stumble, sometimes joyously, often painfully, always passionately, toward love and mutual happiness.”

Dear Author

“I fell in love with this book from the very beginning.… It has the right amount of romance.… And the sex scenes were hot, too.”

Night Owl Reviews
, 4 stars

“As I have come to expect from Molly O’Keefe,
Wild Child
is a deliciously steamy romance that has plenty of substance.… Another fabulous book by a very gifted author that I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys contemporary romances.”

Book Reviews and More by Kathy

“Molly O’Keefe is one of my favorite writers. You can count on her to create characters that will test you and take your emotions for a spin, one moment loving them the next wanting to give them a good shake. Well, she didn’t let me down with this story!… The writing is spectacular and meaningful, the story has depth and the characters are
interesting and true to their designed nature. I make no bones about O’Keefe being one of my favorite writers and, even though I was prepared for a good book, I was blown away by this one.”

The Book Nympho

“Super hot scenes, funny moments and some of the most romantic gestures I have ever read.… Happy reading!”

The Reading Café

“It’s no secret that Molly O’Keefe’s novels are my favorites in the very crowded contemporary romance genre. Her books … are brilliantly subversive. All of the novels I’ve read by this author riff on romance archetypes and conventions in a deliciously satisfying manner.… When it comes down to it, if you’re looking for an authentically complex romance narrative … read

Crooked Creek Novels

Crazy Thing Called Love

“There is no stopping the roller coaster of emotion, sexual tension and belly laughs. O’Keefe excels in creating flawed characters who readers will root for on every page. Despite very serious subjects and tear-worthy emotion, the tone of the novel is a perfect balance of fun and heart.”

RT Book Reviews
, 4½ stars

“O’Keefe’s newest romance hits the high notes with a storyline that tugs on the heartstrings, maintains a sizzling degree of sexual tension, and plays on realistic, authentic conflicts that keep the audience emotionally invested from start to finish. Gripping storytelling and convincing character-building allow the story to unfold in the present and in the past, offering windows into the psyches of a damaged hero and his restyled first love. An intense, heartwarming winner.”

Kirkus Reviews

Crazy Thing Called Love
has become my all-time favorite contemporary romance!… Don’t miss out on O’Keefe’s Crooked Creek series! These are the books you will still be talking about in twenty years!”

Joyfully Reviewed

“There is nothing lacking in Molly O’Keefe’s
Crazy Thing Called Love
. I am glad to say that it has every possible thing a woman could want in a good romance story. The Crooked Creek series is something that you will definitely want to get your hands on.”

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

“Wonderful story … unlike anything I have read before.… Highly addictive.”

Single Titles

“This was an absolute joy to read.… Definitely a book worth picking up.”

Cocktails and Books

“O’Keefe keeps the momentum of the present story going at a breathtaking pace with well placed visits back to the past, providing insight into these characters.”

Fresh Fiction

Can’t Buy Me Love

“Readers should clear their schedules before they pick up O’Keefe’s latest—a fast-paced, funny and touching book that is ‘unputdownable.’ Her story is a rollercoaster ride of tragedy and comedy that is matched in power by believable and sympathetic characters who leap off the pages. Best of all, this is just the beginning of a new series.”

RT Book Reviews

“From the beginning we see Tara’s stainless steel loyalty and her capacity for caring, as well as Luc’s overweening sense of responsibility and punishing self-discipline.… Watching them fall for each other is excruciatingly enjoyable.… 
Can’t Buy Me Love
is the rare kind of book that both challenges the genre’s limits and reaffirms its most fundamental appeal.”

Dear Author

Can’t Buy Me Love
is an unexpectedly rich family-centered love story, with mature and sexy characters and interweaving subplots that keep you turning the pages as fast as you can read. I really enjoyed it. It’s also got some of the most smooth and compelling sequel bait I’ve ever swallowed.”

Read React Review

“If you love strong characters, bad guys trying to make good things go sour, and a steamy romance that keeps you guessing about just how two people are going to overcome their own angsts to come together where they belong, then I highly recommend
Can’t Buy Me Love
by Molly O’Keefe. You won’t be disappointed.”

Unwrapping Romance

“A stunning contemporary romance … One of the most memorable books I’ve read in a long time.”

New York Times
bestselling author

“Molly O’Keefe is a unique, not-to-be-missed voice in romantic fiction.… An automatic must-read!”

New York Times
bestselling author

Can’t Hurry Love

“Using humor and heartrending emotion, O’Keefe writes characters who leap off the page. Their flaws and foibles make for an emotional story filled with tension, redemption and laughter. While this novel is not a direct continuation of the first in the series, it makes the reading richer and more interesting to devour the books in order. Readers should keep their eyes peeled for the third book and make room on their keeper shelves for this sparkling fresh series.”

RT Book Reviews

“Have you ever read a book that seeped into your soul while you read it, leaving you feeling both destroyed and elated when you finished?
Can’t Hurry Love
was that book for me.”

Reader, I Created Him

Can’t Hurry Love
is special. It’s that book that ten years from now you will still be recommending to everyone because it is undeniably great!”

Joyfully Reviewed

“An emotion-packed read,
Can’t Hurry Love
 … is a witty, passionate contemporary romance that will capture your interest from the very beginning.”

Indecent Proposal

Chapter 1

January 8

Shelby Monroe was not having a very good morning.

Last night, her new neighbor—a motorcycle enthusiast apparently with insomnia and a hearing problem—didn’t stop revving his engine until nearly dawn. Then Mom put the coffeepot on the stove thinking it was the kettle and it shattered when it got too hot.

So here she was for her first day of classes after the Christmas break at Bishop Elementary, frazzled and without coffee.

Which was no way to deal with Colleen.

“Welcome back!” Colleen, the school secretary, stood up from behind her desk and for a moment seemed as if, in the three-week break, she’d forgotten that Shelby wasn’t a hugger.

Thank God it came back to her at the last moment and instead of throwing her arms around Shelby like they were old friends, she turned to the bottom drawer of her filing cabinet and yanked it open. Shelby dropped her phone and purse in it. There was no office for the part-time staff, so she made do with Colleen’s bottom drawer. She shrugged out of her winter jacket and hung it on the coat hook with her scarf, then tucked her gloves in her coat sleeves.
