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.


What He Never Knew by Kandi Steiner was a beautifully breathtaking and emotionally gripping love story that wholeheartedly captivated my heart and soul. The author FINALLY gives readers all the answers that we have been craving for months…and oh my freaking goodness does she deliver with a phenomenal storyline and unbelievably amazing cast of characters. This story left me completely breathless and I was certainly in awe as I found myself inhaling each and every angsty page!

The storyline was definitely not what I was expecting for Reese Walker, but I loved every single whirlwind moment that his story had to offer. I have been deeply in love with this character since the very beginning and when I first heard that he was getting his own happily ever after I couldn’t stop smiling because my heart broke a little for him when Charlie chose her husband Cameron over him. And while my heart did break for him, I always knew that they weren’t meant to be because she wasn’t ever truly his. Sarah Henderson, now she was without a doubt his one true love and yes he had to go through heartbreak after heartbreak to find her, but it was all worth it in the end. Their love and passion just bleed from the pages and left me so freaking emotional time and time again.

What He Never Knew was LITERACY GOLD and Kandi Steiner deserves ALL THE PRAISE for this extraordinary story! This is hands down a MUST READ and although it is technically a standalone I STRONGLY recommend that you read the first two books in the What He Doesn’t Know series to get the full experience and learn what led him to this moment…with this girl!

About Kandi Steiner

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
