WHERE I BELONG
by Molly O'Keefe
The Debt #2
THE DUET IS COMPLETE
Where I Belong by M. O'Keefe is NOW LIVE!
"[T]otally one-clickable!" — J. Kenner NYT and Internationally Best Selling Author
THE GIRL I LOVED IS THE WOMAN I CAN’T HAVE
It was simple: Pay the debt and I stay out of jail. Pay the debt and I stay alive.
But I sacrificed it all for Beth.
I didn’t pay what I owed. I’m sure punishment is coming, but I can take it - as long as Beth is safe. Away from her mother and everyone else who would hurt her.
I gave it all up for two days with her. And it was worth it.
She always was.
THE SECRETS WE KEEP ARE WHAT TEARS US APART
We’re supposed to be done. Over. Tommy goes his way, I go mine. Cue the heartbreaking music.
I’m supposed to forget him, but I don’t think I can. And when the danger closes in on Tommy, we’re on the run again. From Bates. From my mother. From our past. And there are no safe places to hide.
Except one. And it’s the place that will hurt Tommy the most.
But maybe it’s time for me to face my past. My demons.
Maybe it’s time for me to save Tommy for once.
Last year when I reviewed Everything I Left Unsaid by M. O'Keefe, I said that "there are layers that build the tension, descriptions that make your heart ache, prose that makes the mundane beautiful." I felt the same emotional draw from this story as well.
This story continues where LOST WITHOUT YOU leaves off. Beth and Tommy are two traumatized adults after "surviving" an abusive foster home at "St. Jokes." The terrible events are difficult enough to live with, but what is even harder is the protective layers each builds up to survive without each other. Neither used the phrase, "I wish" because it implies a hope neither of them have. They don't wish, they don't hope, and they surround themselves with lies because the stark reality of life without each other makes it difficult to imagine a future.
Molly O'Keefe is a master of writing love stories that encompass the deepest pains. This is no superficial story. These characters are stuck and are in a vortex that keeps them spinning around. There is no closure until they find their way back to each other. Sometimes, the weight of their struggles weighs heavy on the reader as well. However, the author gives us a happy ending that is all the more beautiful after coming through the dark.
If you are looking for a light, easy read. This book may not be for you. If you are looking for something engrossing that we make you feel a gamut of emotions, this is a book for you.

ALL DEBTS MUST BE PAID
Seven years ago, I thought I could save Beth, the girl I loved from the monster who was supposed to take care of us. I thought I could keep Beth and all the other kids at St. Jude’s Home for Court Placed Juveniles safe.
I failed. Badly. Now we all have blood on our hands and owe a dangerous man a very dangerous debt. We don’t know when he’ll come calling for payment, but when he does – we pay, or we suffer.
When my turn comes, I’m ready for anything.
Except seeing Beth again.
LOVE IS NEVER FREE
No one ever tells you that the cost of having your dreams come true is literally every single other part of your life. Yes, I’m a huge pop star these days, but I’m pretty much a mess, too.
I’ve spent my life hiding behind disguises, make-up and costumes, all to protect myself from the kind of pain that comes from revealing your true self to someone.
I did that once. With Tommy. The only person I ever loved. It didn’t turn out so well.
And now, with everything else falling apart around me, I’m suddenly in the backseat of his car.
And the past we’ve both tried to run from is catching up with us.
Contains The Debt: A Prologue and 50,000 more words in the continuation of Tommy and Beth's story
