KEEP YOU FROM HARM
September 27, 2013
Age Group/Genre: Mature
YA/New Adult Paranormal Romance
They weigh you down. I’ve kept a
secret all my life. It’s my mother’s secret, too. I inherited it from her along
with a unique ability that only we possess. She’s gone now, another victim of
addiction. If her death isn’t enough to bring me to my knees, her betrayal
flays me to the bone. Because the secret my mother and I have been keeping is
just one of many she’d kept. She never told me I have an older brother. And now
he’s here, eager to be my guardian.
There is no one else. So I move across
the country to live with this stranger, my brother. But experience has taught
me that most situations are temporary and forming attachments only leads to
hurt in the end. That’s why I’m determined to keep to myself in this new place,
struggling to seem aloof while I’m quietly breaking apart.
Then I meet Lucas…
His magnetism is hard to resist, and
most girls at school aren’t resisting. I don’t fall so easily though,
especially not for guys who use their good looks as a weapon. From the start,
our interactions are tense and volatile. I know it’s because I’m denying the
unwelcome desire that grips me when he’s near. I think he feels it, too. He
looks at me with an intensity that threatens to unhinge my resolve. Soon he’s
trying to break through the walls that past hurts have built.
But I’m not what I appear to be, and
it wouldn’t be fair to get involved with him. At least that’s what I tell
myself. Until a terrible act of violence reveals that Lucas has a secret, too.
It’s a secret that links us together and ties us to an evil history I never
could have imagined.
I got this book from the author free of cost in exchange of
an honest review from my side.
Firstly I would like to thank the author and the publisher
for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this fabulous book.
Well here we meet Raielle who is an extraordinary teenager
having the power of healing at the tips of her fingers but to her it is a
curse. It’s a family inheritance and Raielle cannot run from it even if she
wants too. After her mother’s death a stranger claims to be her brother and
that makes Raielle mistrust her mother because of the secrets she kept. Now
enter Lucas into this scene and Raielle is completely and instantly drawn to
him and the same goes for Lucas as well. When the past comes back with an ugly
face and threatens their present and future, how will they fight back? Would
their love survive? What is the secret that Lucas has been keeping all this
time? Has he betrayed Raielle’s emotions?
I really enjoyed this twisted plot which has so many
surprises and shocks hidden at each and every nook and corner. I loved Lucas
but I didn’t like Raielle very much. It felt to me that the characters were a
bit sketchy and needed to be developed even more, hopefully we will get to
enjoy a developed and flourished Lucas and Raielle in the sequel.
The suspense was heart-wrenching for me but it also made me
finish it in one go. I didn’t felt bored at all during this read. The unique
concept and its perfect presentation and execution really intrigued me and kept
me interested till the very end where I faced a cliff-hanger and because it
wasn’t that huge so I’m not at all unhappy with it. The action scenes were a
treat to read and the fabulous writing style of the author made me a part of
this unique story. I liked the world building as well and it was believable.
Over all a good read that will fascinate you and you’ll love
this sexy and passionate romantic relation that the main characters share and
the huge secrets that these characters kept from each other also included a
good touch of mystery to the story. Enjoy guys.
