What He Never Knew, a standalone teacher/student romance in the What He Doesn't Know series by bestselling author Kandi Steiner is live!
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.

If you've read Kandi Steiner's What He Doesn't Know duet, you've met Reese. Though Reese wasn't the boy I was rooting for in those particular books, I still wanted him to get his happy. Reading this really made me feel for him. This story was emotional, sensual, and beautify written.
Reese was an entire universe, and the piano was a mere telescope we tried to see him through.
Reese Walker teaches piano. The piano is all he really has in his life, and he's mostly okay with that. After losing everyone who ever meant anything to him, he's a loner. Then Sarah Henderson walks into his life, or his piano lessons. Sarah is much younger than Reese, but there is something between them from the start. It's a spark. But it's more. Reese can tell Sarah is harboring the same kind of pain he is. He can feel it in her. He works with her to make her the best pianist she can be, and he starts to fall along the way.
Sarah is not the girl she used to be. She used to be a fun loving, yet serious college student. After a terrible incident had her dropping out of college and coming to Pennsylvania to stay with her aunt and uncle, piano is all she has in her life, much like Reese. Reese Walker is the best of the best and Sarah knows how lucky she is to be taught by him. Even though Sarah has sworn off men for good reasons, Reese is different. She trusts him. Something she never thought she'd be able to do again.
I once believed I’d find my prince, my one and only soulmate who would make all the pieces of my life fall perfectly in place. Now, the only love I believed in was the love I felt for the piano.
No one writes quite like Kandi Steiner. Her story telling is flawless and her words are poetic and gorgeous. This book hit me in the feels. Both Reese and Sarah's stories gutted me. Sarah especially. I feel like her story is so many other women's stories. It's heartbreaking. I'm so glad she had Reese. I'm glad they had each other. My favorite stories are those where the characters are a little broken, but together, they heal. This was exactly that.
The ending of this story had me crying the happiest of tears. This was a lovely book. It was real, raw, and made me feel. It was a little heavy at times, and the romance was a bit forbidden as Reese was her teacher and he was 37 to her 21, but I rooted for them to be together. I loved seeing Sarah's journey and I also loved watching Reese come back to himself. I really enjoyed this one and recommend to anyone who read the duet before it (it can be read as a stand-alone, but I think you'll get more out of it if you've read the others) and those who love emotional reads!!
Nothing about us made sense, and yet, there was no other possibility. It was me and him and us. It just was. And it always would be.
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.
