In His Keeping
Slow Burn #2
By: Maya Banks
Releasing January 27th, 2015
#1 bestselling author Maya Banks continues her suspenseful and steamy Slow Burn trilogy with this second book-a twisting tale featuring a strong yet vulnerable heroine in danger and the sexy alpha hero who must save her.
Abandoned as a baby to a young wealthy couple and raised in a world of privilege, Arial has no hint of her past or who she belonged to. Her only link lies in the one thing that sets her apart from everyone else—telekinetic powers. Protected by her adoptive parents and hidden from the public to keep her gift secret, Ari is raised in the lap of luxury, and isolation. That is, until someone begins threatening her life.
Beau Devereaux is no stranger to the strange. As the head of Deveraux Security, he’s more than familiar with the realities of physic powers. So when a family friend approaches him about protecting his daughter, he’s more than ready to jump on board. What Beau isn’t prepared for is the extent of his attraction to his beautiful and powerful client. What began as a simple assignment, just another job, quickly turns personal as Beau discovers he’ll do anything at all to protect Ari. Even if it costs him his life.
From the page one I was captivated by this compelling story, and was hanging on to every word.
The plot is set with skill and the tale flows like a river, as the history of Arial, and her parents, at the beginning of the book paint such a loving, touching and tender picture of the family.
The powerful and raw connection Ariel and Beau have, also has a history, and makes you want to believe in destiny and serendipity. This story proves once again, that the tougher they are, the harder they fall. Beau, the grouchy alpha male, talking about his feelings, taking tender care of Ariel, protecting her, and fighting for her, is nothing but adoring. The love scenes are nearly poetic in nature, filled with passion, true connection of heart, mind, and soul.
The action kicks the adrenaline going. The fear and threat are palpable, the psychic abilities interesting and intriguing, the fights against the evil villains energetic and merciless.
When the story makes you smile with the merry banter of the characters, sigh with the sweetness of the romance, shed a tear for the heartbreaking events, makes your heart beat rise with the fierce action, and at the end wish you could stay in that magic the tale weaved, it more than deserves
