What He Always Knew by Kandi Steiner
Release Date: March 29th, 2018
What He Doesn’t Know Duet, book 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Left or right.
It’s that simple, and it isn’t simple at all.
If I turn left, the road will lead me back to the man I promised my life to, the one I’d imagined building a family with, the one who’s done everything in his power to get me back.
If I turn right, the road will take me to the man I loved first, the man who brought me back to life, the man who would do anything to keep me.
I knew the fork in the road was inevitable; it was the decision I never wanted to make between choices I didn’t know I had.
And I love them both.
My heart is destined to exist in two equal halves — one with each man. But one half beats stronger, the vein running deepest, and holds my choice in silence long before I know it for myself.
The realization of what I have to do, of the heart I have to break, just might break mine too.

About the Author:
Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.
Kandi 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 die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).
When Kandi isn’t working or 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 beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.

5 Fork in the Road Stars
Devoured… I tell you, that’s what happened. So badly wanted to go to the end and find out how this was going to pan out. Was it a left turn or a right turn in the fork. After the ending in What He Doesn’t Know, Book #1 that must be read prior to this one, my heart was split in two directions.
This landed on my kindle and like an addict trying to get their next fix, I dropped everything and DOVE I tell ya… Head first into this conclusion. Fingernails are gone and I’m finished. Came up for air a couple times but nonstop read this one. This Duet is one that flows perfectly that you can’t do anything but devour it!
It’s a story going in that I knew would pull so many strings with me. The reality of the words typed in this story is one that you should digest slowly and take note of how the situation is unfolded. As if this is a real story and more people should process how these three handled the situation. Instead of throwing each other away, immediately discharging history, failing to look at the whole picture, take a look around and figure out, what truly makes you happy.
Not going to lie here, I shed a few tears reading this story. It’s an emotional roller-coaster ride. There are good times, bad times, shocking times, you name it, it’s in this book.
By the time you make it to the last page, you blow out a breath that you had no idea you were holding! Fantastic Duet by this talented author.
|Two books to make our hearts pitter-patter!
Two men to love Charlie completely !
Two months to choose -Reese or Cameron!
Left or right. It was as simple as that, except it wasn’t simple at all.
The truth was simple. I loved them both. My heart was forever severed, destined to exist in two equal halves — one with each man. But one half beat stronger, one half had the vein that ran deepest.
The other half would always be a part of me, but in a softer way
What a dilemma Kandi has put us through ! There’s no solution to this web of heartstrings jumbled together. Each thread runs through all the three hearts at some point or another. Unravelling one could hurt the other. The book is seeping in angst, each word kandi pens,just makes us all gaping and surprised. It’s surprising to see that though Kandi is so young, yet her acute knowledge of relationship pains and travails, far exceeds her young age. She deftly wordshops us into their lives and we get to experience their vicious circle of predicament in 3-D ! I had trouble picking the right person, making a sound decision and turning the wheel of the car , left or right. So I can’t even begin to imagine what Kandi must have endured writing this story. It’s very delicate balance of logic on both sides of the spectrum, but the muscled organ beating in our chests rarely listens to reason, does it.
I applaud Kandi’s attempt to make sense of this maddening, frustrating, heartbreaking story.It touched my heart and is still sitting heavy, making me feel all choked up and broken.
The story is haunting, sexy, infuriating at times, and sentimental & endearing at others.
Loss and comfort walk hand-in-hand.
Fiery passion and undying love war against each other.
This or That?
Him or HIM?
Music or birds?
Home our Tent?
Passion or Love?
By this time I was exhausted trying to reason the actions and I’m thinking so was Charlie. I may not have had the dream ending , yet it made total sense and the best part is that Kandi made it very believable and inevitable.
So hats off to you Ms Steiner! The twist was fantastic, I was taken aback and so was charlie. You changed the rules now
I loved the triple POV, you could see that whatever bed of nails Charlie was tossing and turning over, was poking Cameron like needles too.
Time. It was something I’d never paid attention to before. It felt like an unlimited resource, something I had plenty of. I thought I had forever. Now, I only had weeks.
Life wasn’t a bed of roses for Reese Walker either
It was like watching an entire kingdom crumble in her eyes, and I was the one holding the hammer that took down the first wall.
And in between was a sandwiched, pressurised heart of Charlie!
Was it Reese? Did he wake me up, change me, ignite an old burning flame when he came back into town?
Was it Cameron? Did we hit our breaking point, one coming all along ? Was it his lack of care, his years of apathy, that somehow transitioned me from one point to another?
Or was it me?
I was ready to tear my hair out, gouge my eyes out, out of exasperation, at this point. My irritation level at 1000°
Choose the direction FFS!!!!
The characters I must say, though not unique, were stuck in unique situations. Reese I loved/hated with equal fervour. How he treated Blake was wrong on so many levels. Charlie was very conflicted character( but I get it why). I just fell in love with stoic and staid Cameron though. He was lost and broken. I wanted to hug him and envelope him.
I liked that personalities were flawed and were not prim caricatures. Or that Kandi didn’t seek and easy way out by killing one of them or totally painting any character totally black. That shows writing maturity.
If you love slow burn romances , second chances soaked in tears and angst, this book is for you . Go ahead. Read, cry, bawl your eyes out. Go on this journey to Mount Lebanon, Pennsylvania
