“[T]otally one-clickable!” — J. Kenner NYT and Internationally Best Selling Author






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.


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.

Where I Belong is the second book in The Debt series by Molly O’Keefe. This book is not a standalone and it’s essential to read them in order, with Lost Without You first.

Where I Belong begins with a recap of where we were left in the first book.  The tension is high as Tommy and Beth are running from her mother and Bate’s men.  As they are driving, Beth decided to bring Tommy to her safe place. A place where she went shortly after she ran away from her mother.  Will Tommy and Beth be safe there or will they find themselves in a bigger mess?

The first book, Lost Without You, was darker and contained a lot of drama, suspense, and anticipation.  Where I Belong took a bit of a different approach with more emotions.  I was expecting the same amount of suspense and tension in the second book and ponder if these two books could have been put together as one complete book.  Either way, I enjoyed the story and do recommend you adding it to your TBR list!







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.



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.

Being kidnapped.

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




Lost Without You is the first book in the Debt series by Molly O’Keefe.  If you have not read The Debt: A Prologue, no worries!  Lost Without You contains The Debt: A Prologue, so no need to go back.  If you already read the prologue, then you can just begin at Part 2.

In this story, we skip ahead seven years and Tommy is working as a mason in the San Francisco area.  He keeps in touch with Simon, but does not know where the other foster kids from St. Jude’s Home for Court Placed Juveniles are.   He still looks over his shoulder waiting for Bates to collect his debt. Then, one day… Carissa finds him and delivers the packet with his orders.   What will Tommy be asked to do and will be do it?

The story line is exciting and I love the characters!  Can’t wait for the last book, Where I belong, which is due out June 26th.
