Arial knows the rules that keep her safe. She's been following them since she was a little girl: Do not tell. Do not show. But in a moment of terror, facing an attacker intent on taking more than just her life, Ari has no choice but to unleash the psychic powers she's been hiding since childhood.

Now, with her abilities revealed, a bigger threat looms - something that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her parents and her secretive upbringing. But this isn't a fight she can face on her own.

As the head of Devereaux Security, Beau Devereaux is no stranger to the strange. But when he takes on a new client - a beautiful young woman with an extraordinary gift - Beau isn't prepared for the extent of his attraction to her. What began as a simple assignment, just another job, quickly turns personal as Beau discovers he'll do anything at all to protect Ari. No matter what it costs him personally. Even his heart and soul.

                   

read it, track it is a way for me to track books for my reading challenges and the reviews will be super short.

In His Keeping followings a story about another heroine with a supernatural ability, telekinetic powers. The story opens up with one couple who seems to be the main characters but they are actually Arial’s parents and we get see her use her powers for the first time. Fast forward and we see an adult Arial deal with her life in danger and her parents have gone missing.

Arial seeks help from Devereaux Security, since her father told her if she ever needs help she is find the Devereaux brothers. She and Beau have an instant-a-lust connection that turns into instant-a-love after they are thrown together after a dangerous encounter getting her to a safe place so he can help her find her parents.

The two sex it up in between life and death action making In His Keeping action packed with some very smoking loving make. Jeffrey Kafer delivers another great performance but I wish some of the “sexy” dialogue wasn’t so corny.

I’ll continue the Slow Burn series.

            read it, track reviews are a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short. If have issues with rape then you should be warned. While the rape doesn’t go into great detail it happens to two women. One in the physical aspect and the other through their empathy talent.  I received a copy of the upcoming release in the Slow Burn series, Just One Touch so I decided to search my library for the previous books in the series. I found them all on audio so I’m doing a binge listen before I read Just One Touch. Keep Me Safe is my first Maya Banks book and my first time listening to Jeffrey Kafer. […]
