A sizzling story of a woman who risks her life and her heart to find a wealthy man’s missing sister—the first novel in a sexy new romantic suspense series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks
When Caleb Devereaux's younger sister is kidnapped, this scion of a powerful and wealthy family turns to an unlikely source for help: a beautiful and sensitive woman with a gift for finding answers others cannot.
While Ramie can connect to victims and locate them by feeling their pain, her ability comes with a price. Every time she uses it, it costs her a piece of herself. Helping the infuriatingly attractive and impatient Caleb successfully find his sister nearly destroys her. Even though his sexual intensity draws her like a magnet, she needs to get as far away from him as she can.
Deeply remorseful for the pain he’s caused, Caleb is determined to make things right. But just when he thinks Ramie's vanished forever, she reappears. She’s in trouble and she needs his help. Now, Caleb will risk everything to protect her—including his heart. . . .
Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.
As a primarily YA/NA blogger, I find myself wanting to spice things up a bit and read something just outside my comfort zone. KEEP ME SAFE by Maya Banks was just the book to do that.
KEEP ME SAFE is the second Maya Banks book I have read and just like the first one I read, TAKING IT ALL, I found myself 100% engaged in the story. It’s a book that is filled with mystery and romance, with both of these elements complimenting each other perfectly. From the moment I started reading, I was sucked into the dangerous world that surrounds Ramie St. Claire. All her life, she has never been one who felt like she belonged. She’s been given psychic ability that has allowed for her to find missing women and save them from their captors, but it leaves a little of her soul behind since she makes a connection that allows for her to feel and see all of the pain these women feel.
After years of experiencing this pain and torture, she goes under the radar, only to be found my Caleb Devereaoux who is anxiously searching for his missing sister. After he forces Ramie to hold one of Tori’s scarves, Caleb witnesses the horror that not only his sister is experiencing, but that Ramie is experiencing as well. When Ramie helps save Tori, Caleb vows to repay her for the pain he has caused her.
One year later, Ramie finds herself running for her life and knows no one to call other than Caleb Devereaoux. Caleb jumps at the opportunity to protect Ramie and rushes to help her at the drop of a hat. Little do they both know the feelings they will stir & the danger that’s ahead of them both.
There is a lot of action in this book and there were times I felt like I was watching an episode of Criminal Minds (which I love). I was intrigued by the psychic abilities that the captor, Ramie, and even Tori possessed. Sometimes, books that involve psychic elements, it comes across as cheesy, but not in KEEP ME SAFE. Everything felt like puzzle pieces coming together. Towards the end, Banks really threw me for a loop! I was not expecting the turn of events that took place, but after reading, really liked the way the book played out.
KEEP ME SAFE is the first book in the Slow Burn trilogy. Book #2 is due out in January 2015.
