What He Doesn't Know (What He Doesn't Know Duet, #1) by Kandi Steiner

What He Doesn't Know (What He Doesn't Know Duet, #1)

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 hou...

    5+ stars!!! They say there are two sides to every story, and I suppose in most cases, that’s true. But the one I lived inside of? It had three. Kandi Steiner slayed me with this book. When I hear the words ‘emotional rollercoaster’, I’m like YES. THIS BOOK. I am wrecked, completely gutted. I feel so emotional right now and all I can think about is getting that second book in my hands! Charlie Pierce is a wife, a kindergarten teacher, an...

    MY REVIEW can also be found on my blog: KITTY KATS CRAZY ABOUT BOOKS WHAT HE DOESN’T KNOW: Is a full length romance novel and is the first book in the (What he doesn’t know) duet by Author Kandi Steiner. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ up until the end then we get another persons perspective. The cover alone calls to you, I knew just looking at it that I’d be thrown into a world of feels, a world of angst, a world of tears, a world of...

    *****FIVE STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}Reese shook his head with a lazy smile, tucking his hands in his pockets. Then, he looked at me. I never knew so much could be said with a look. Sure, I was in tune with Cameron, or at least, I had been. We could share a look and communicate a hundred different things. But with Reese, there were no words behind the gaze. There were feelings. There was heat, and concern—want and denial. And ...

    “The ring on her finger was a symbol of her commitment to another man. That alone should have sobered me. That alone should have been at the forefront of my mind, but it wasn’t. Charlie Reid was married, she was Charlie Pierce now, and still, it didn’t matter. I loved her, anyway.”Wild. Chaotic. Turbulent. Heart wrenching. That’s what this book is. I’m breathless after finishing. And I’m saying this right now, What He Doesn’t ...

    5+ “Three Sides” StarsWhat did I just read?! My heart is racing. My mind is spinning. I can’t tell up from down or left from right. But THIS is how you write a love triangle. What He Doesn’t Know is the story of Charlie Pierce née Reid. It’s about her marriage and what happens after. It’s about life and how life happens. It’s a turbulent story of love, brokenness, second chances, third chances and everything in between. It’s as *...

    *4.5 stars*This is how a love triangle is done! This is a difficult book for me to review since I don’t want to give anything away, but just know that I loved it! I couldn’t stop reading even when it made me cry and broke my heart. This is an emotional story about relationships; the good, the bad and the ugly. I love angsty books and this one is a prime example of angst done right. You need an open mind to read a story like this cause it’s ...

Charlie Reid was married, she was Charlie Pierce now, and still, it didn’t matter. I loved her, anyway”. Every time I read about a love triangle, I get EXTREMELY nervous as I should.

    4 stars! Many of you who follow my reviews should know by now my reading tastes fall under ANGST. Anything angst, I gobble it up! So when Kandi Steiner, an amazing author known for ANGST, releases a duet that revolves around a love triangle, you bet your ass I was ALL OVER THAT SHIT. I bought the book right away, there was only one problem: the second book wasn't out yet. So, I sat on my ass and waited to start the first book until the second one...

    ***3.5 STARS***I'm a wee bit conflicted on my rating here. On one hand, the book brought out many emotions for me. On the other hand, the heroine, Charlie was weak. I can't stand weak heroines. I need my girls to have a sense of self worth and not let people walk all over them.Charlie is married to Cameron - love the name BTW - and they have one very serious topic hanging over their marriage from 5 years ago and the never talked about it. I'm sor...

    “They say there are two sides to every story, and I suppose in most cases that’s true. But the one I lived inside of? It had three.” Wow! I absolutely loved What He Doesn’t Know from start to finish, that Prologue literally gutted me; I mean I hadn’t even really gotten into the nitty gritty of the story and it had already moved me so much. I knew from that moment I was going to feel all the emotions that this book would draw out of me,...

    This book had my heart literally racing. I absolutely, unquestionably, wholeheartedly loved it! It isn’t just that the story sucks you in, it’s the characters. The writing is great, the flow is just perfect and the twist and turns are everything I need to keep from getting bored. I enjoyed the realness of this story because the feelings that the three parties transpired seemed real to me. This is a fabulous book about a husband and wife and t...

    Do. Not. Agree. With. Reviews. That. Romanticize. Adultery. WTH?Steiner has, rather skillfully, written a drama featuring a young couple's immeasurable and infinitely tragic lack of communication that unsurprisingly resulted in their failure to achieve closure and resolution of mixed emotions, the least of which were Cameron's and Charlie's grief, pain, and misery over the death of their babies. Five years have elapsed wherein Cameron and Charlie...

    4-4.5 ★'s “If I am a river, you are the ocean. It all comes back to you in the end.”Kandi Steiner has become one of my favorite authors due to my favorite subject matter, angst, duh. She had me at A Love Letter to Whiskey and while this one is up there, I have to hold back until I read the last book in this duet. But let me just tell you, this one is super angsty and little gems were popping up all over the place...some taking me totally by...

    Holy moly, I am so freaking twisted up after reading this book.I know a lot of romance readers hate love triangles but this book is the PERFECT demonstration of precisely why I love them so much. I love anything that makes me FEEL THINGS while I read, anything that rips at my heartstrings, that creates a tug of war in my mind and, love them or hate them, that's what a good love triangle guarantees. Kandi Steiner creates a wholly immersive, heartb...

    OMG...What the actual fuck did I just read?! I’m at a loss for words. My heart is beating fast and I NEED THE NEXT BOOK!!”If I am a river, you are the ocean. It all comes back to you in the end.”Okay, let’s reflect for a moment on how freaking AMAZING Kandi can weave a story together and make you feel all those emotions in such a short amount of time. This is a hard book to review because I feel like anything and everything I mention woul...

    This book was interesting. It is obviously not for people who have a cheating trigger. I will say that it kept me on my toes because I honestly didn’t have any idea who she was going to choose. However, I will say that there was extra drama added that I didnt think was needed (aka Blake surprise). Overall, I would give it 4 stars.

    NOW LIVE: AMAZONRelationships are hard, they are such a beautiful wonderful thing, but sometimes there are ugly moments. There's disagreements and fights, there are hurt feelings, and sometimes, in the worst of times, there is no communication and there is no stability. Charlie Pierce and her husband Cameron are living in the worst of times, a tragedy leaving them floating through the motions of life, their companionship built on time, but no lon...

    FIVE LOVE ME INSTEAD STARS. “I’ll wait. I’d wait forever for you.” This book has just destroyed me in the worst way possible and I don’t regret a moment. Kandi Steiner (fast becoming a favourite) throws out the rule book with this beautifully written start to a duet and I have to admit I’m craving more. Steiner has landed herself as my ‘go to’ author for all things angst related since reading (and devouring) ‘A love letter to wh...

    5 Amazing Stars! I'm speechless.It's no secret that this book tackles infidelity BUT what sets this book apart is that this is the only one that writes not one, not two but three POVs It's how every book with this trope should've written because I've waited for like forever to read something like this. And for that Ms. Steiner, I love you. You did a very good job. A wish come true for me. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The story was well writt...

    I'm only seeing high reviews for this book so far, so I guess it's just a me thing. This book tried really hard to be all angsty and emotional (and it looks like it did the job for most people), but it just didn't do it for me. The story did draw me in a little at first, but I couldn't get past the detachment I felt to the characters. As to how the story progressed, there was a tiny bit of suspense that kept me turning the pages (and allowed me t...

I know I only have to wait a few days but this is absolutely KILLING ME. Important Note: This book is an emotional romance. It is the first book in the duet and ends in a cliffhanger. This book DOES contain cheating and a love triangle. For some people, this is a hard limit a...

    “I learned the people we love usually turned out to be one of three things: a home, a holiday, or hell.”—Beau Taplin This is the truest adage, if there was ever spoken!! And Charlie Pierce knows this the best, she's gone through all three in her life. She's the quintessential "Good Girl" living her life inside the conforms of society, her heart trapped in a box, her life well within the lines I was always reliable. I was the “yes” girl....
