I received this book for free, from the author in exchange for an honest review.
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 could never have imagined.
*This book was originally written in 2014 but was never posted.
I won't lie, the cover of this book is what initally attracted me to it. It's absolutely gorgeous.
For some reason, it took me FOREVER to read this book. I have no idea why. It was really good and really well written but it just seemed like it was really long to read.
I enjoyed the story line a lot. It was very interesting and somthing that I can safely say that I have never read before. The only problem that I had was Lucas. I really liked Lucas but at the same time, his inital jerk attitude and mood swings annoyed me. I don't think it was the author's fault, I just think that my tastes are shifting a bit because a year ago I would have completely swooned over his character.
I did really enjoy Keep You From Harm and found it extremely interesting. I would love to read the next book.
Rating: 3 Stars.
Character: Lucas and Raielle.
