Review: Keep Me Safe by Maya Banks


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....

Publication Date: October 7, 2014
This book was a lot darker than I thought. Almost to the point where I almost stopped reading because of how uncomfortable I felt. However, the suspense gripped me and I ended up getting caught up in the mystery aspects.

I love psychic books, so I liked that portion of the novel the best. I could feel for Ramie after finding out her powers come at such a high cost. Basically, she feels everything her subjects are going through and some of her experiences involve her being tortured. Ramie is a mess and she reaches out to Caleb for help.

Caleb is my favorite type of romance hero: handsome, brooding, complex. I didn’t like some of the decisions he made, but I tried to empathize. I did like how he tried to redeem himself and became uber-protective over Ramie.

There were a few jaw dropping twists. I honestly couldn’t put the book down during the final third of the story. Another plus was the sex scenes were very steamy. Slow Burn is a must-read for fans of adult paranormal romances with a twist.

Rating: 4/5 Stars
