Keep Me Safe (Slow Burn, #1) 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.
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 do risk everything to protect her— including his heart. . .
5 Sexy Suspenseful Stars!!!

Well, this little gem came out of NO WHERE.  I loved Keep Me Safe. I really did. I’ve always been a fan of Maya Banks.  She’s one of the first authors I picked up when I started to read new adult. I think after that, I never looked back.

Keep Me Safe was nothing what I expected.  It was suspenseful with a paranormal twist and the romance will make any book reader happy.

Ramie is sort of a physic.  She can tap into people’s minds by touching anything they own. She helps bring kidnapping victims home, but it comes with a price. Ramie feels everything the kidnaped feels.  Since Ramie is good at what she does there is a particular kidnapper that has been stalking her. He doesn’t like that she helps saves his victims and he intends to hurt Ramie. He just needs to find her first.

Caleb’s sister is kidnapped and he will do anything to save her. He knows Ramie’s abilities and he wants to use Ramie to find his sister.

Ramie reluctantly helps Caleb.  Caleb had no idea Ramie would feel his sister’s pain, but he can’t focus on that now. He needs to save his sister. 

When I first started Keep Me Safe I was punched with so much and I couldn’t stop reading.   All Caleb cares about is finding his sister and when you see the pain Ramie goes through in order to find her, oh it breaks your heart.  I gobble this up like crazy.   Ramie is concerned that Caleb found Ramie easily and Ramie is scared of her stalker.  Ramie decides to go on the run for good.

I love me a damsel-in-distress storyline!
If you don’t’ like Heroine’s being stalked by crazy killers, then this isn’t for you, but fortunately it’s 100% for me and that is why I enjoyed it so much. Ramie goes on the run, but it seems that every where she goes the stalker is always near, a little too close for comfort and so Ramie enlists Caleb to help Ramie. It’s the least he could do with everything he put her through right?

I love Caleb’s guilt. I love that he’s torn of what he did to Ramie, but he would do it all over again if it meant saving his sister.  Caleb is my kind of Hero. He has this protectiveness that I crave, yet he has a Ramie complex.  He wants her, but he has massive guilt.  

Keep Me Safe is no normal book. It goes way out there with physic stuff and suspenseful moments, but in all honestly it felt really fresh and I felt like I was on my toes most of the time.  I also love the villain! I love to hate a villain and Maya Banks delivered for me.  He is pure evil.

I also loved getting small glimpses of the brothers, since they will be apparent throughout the series. I can’t wait for the next book!

If you love Maya Banks or want to try a Maya Banks book, but want something a little different than the norm, then this one is for you.
