What He Never Knew


A teacher/student standalone in the What He Doesn’t Know series.

I never learn my lesson.

And I always want what I can’t have.

When Sarah Henderson walks into my life, I tell myself she’s off limits. She’s my student, sixteen years younger than me, and my boss’s niece. It doesn’t matter that I see the same pain reflected in her eyes that I have in my own, or that the dead organ better known as my heart kicks to life when she’s around.

I’ve been here before, and I know how this ends.

It’s been two years since I fell for the last woman I knew I couldn’t have, the one with the ring on her finger that I chose to ignore.

Two years of trying to overcome that heartache when Sarah slides into my life.

Another woman I can’t have. Another woman I can’t stop myself from wanting.

I never learn my lesson, but with a constant reminder of how that last forbidden love burned, I think I’ve finally learned this one.

This time, I won’t chase what’s off limits.

This time, I’m staying away.

And I’ll keep telling myself that until I believe it.

The Queen of angst strikes again with What He Never Knew! Kandi gives her readers the perfect blend of heat and heart… and the closure we all so desperately needed after the What He Doesn’t Know duet.

The thing I love so much about opening a book by Kandi Steiner is that she continually surprises me. With her topic choices, with the brave and beautiful way she writes, and with the way she’s never content to put out the same story twice. You will always get something unique and thoughtful and gorgeously written. What He Never Knew is absolutely masterful, a crowning jewel in an already stunning display of books. I cannot applaud her enough for doing what she did in between the pages of this book.

Angsty, gripping and captivating. Kandi has such a magical way of telling stories, that she continually leaves me in awe and anxious for more. Be prepared to be amazed. Five musical stars for What He Never Knew.
