Keep You From Harm by Debra Doxer


Keep You from Harm (Remedy Book 1)

Synopsis:

Secrets… 

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.

Review:

Keep You From Harm was such a great read. The writing just drew me in right from the start. This didn't feel like the normal boy meets girl story. The authors style of writing just immerses you in the story and you just really care about the character.  It was just fun and different and I can't wait to read the next book to see what happens!

Raielle grew up thinking she didn't have any family except her mother. When her mother is murdered she suddenly finds that she has a brother she never knew about. He comes to take her home and Raielle doesn't really know what to think. I mean suddenly she has family and she keeps finding out more things with means her mom lied to her. Why? Why wouldn't her mom be honest with her? Why would she never mention she had a brother? There is just a lot of questions.

Besides that Raielle has some secrets of her own. I wasn't expecting this to be a paranormal read so when things started happen that were odd it was interesting. It is not really out there or anything, but it was an interesting addition to the story.

Raielle sees Lucas the moment she gets to her brothers house, only she doesn't know it is him. She is instantly drawn to him in a weird way. She has never really had that happen before, and she doesn't really know what to think about it. After all once she gets to school she realizes Lucas is a player. He is the hot guy all the girls want.

Lucas has some secrets of his own and he has never really let anyone in. He is drawn to Raielle, but he runs hot and cold. One minute he is nice to her, the next he is in a mood and not friendly at all. The back and forth between them was great, even if at times a bit confusing. He definitely has some issues, but it was fun watching the two of them come together.

Raielle is a really amazing character. She is so kind and selfless. I loved reading about her, though I need to start the next book to see what happens! Lucas and Raielle took some time, but they eventually learn to rust each other with their secrets and fall in love. I cannot wait to see them together again in book 2!
