The Heart of ItThe Heart of It by Molly O'Keefe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Heart of It was originally published in the Summer Rain anthology. Proceeds from that anthology go to RAINN (Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network). If you would like to buy this anthology, here is the link:

Because proceeds of the anthology go to RAINN, it's easy to guess that these novellas are going have difficult subject matters. The tables are turned a little in this story since Gabe is the victim. He is trying to overcome the demons from his past. Little did he know that help would come in the form of a woman he requested from an escort service.

Molly O'Keefe is a phenomenal writer. How she can pack so much heart into such a short story, I'll never understand because I don't have that talent, but I am sure glad she does because I have enjoyed every book I've read by her.

This has to be the most intense novella I have ever held in my hands. It gives us a sense of hope. It lets us know that you can overcome things easier when someone believes in you. It also leaves us wanting more.

I do recommend that you read this story if you are a fan of M. O'Keefe or contemporary romance. It doesn't take long and I think you'll be just as amazed as I was about all the emotion dumped in this compact story.

Thanks to Molly O'Keefe for providing me with this ARC.
