Lose yourself in the world of The Keepers, an exciting new Paranormal Romance trilogy from Rae Rivers.

“Don’t ever look for me again, Archer.”
His mouth curled into a smile. “Game on.”

Central Park. Sienna Beckham is out jogging in the autumn sun, feeling almost ordinary. Trouble is, she’ll never be. She’s on the run from her life as a powerful witch and the three Keepers blood-bound to protect her.

Evil is hot on Sienna’s tail and Archer Bennett is searching for her, desperate to find her before they do. As one of her Keepers, he will fight to his death to defend her.

Sienna must return and defend her hometown, Rapid Falls – but she has to face the past and master her powers. And as forbidden feelings blossom between Sienna and Archer, will their love survive the ultimate war?

The Keepers: three strong and handsome warrior brothers, born to protect.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

My Review:
This book got a lot of emotions out of me. I was surprised at how much the main character (Sienna) annoyed me. She is too much of  a girly girl for my taste. The beginning of the book caught my attention, it kept me hooked. I liked the fact that there was action right at the beginning.
Towards the middle, I don’t think it was the best. It focused more on the thought of action rather than the actual action. If that makes any sense. It had the basic idea but no examples leading off to the idea’s base.
The end was really good! It wrapped up the book nicely. Oh how I love cliffhangers… it wasn’t what I expected. But towards the end I was holding my breath pleading.
Throughout the whole book Rivers used a few phases too much. Like how Sienna blames everything on the ‘testosterone’. Also, how every time Archer gets hurt she squeals (she doesn’t squeal, that is just how I imagined it)  “Archer, your hurt!” And rushes over to him. There are a few more but I think I proved my point. Nonetheless, I will definitely read the next book!


Sienna put a hand on Archer’s arm.  “I’m going to find Warrick and get him to talk to me so we can go home.”

Archer responded by sliding both hands behind her lower back and pulling her tighter against him so that her body was flush against his.  She gasped at the sudden close contact and the intensity of his grip on her and tried to pull back to see his expression.

“Just a minute more,” he whispered in her ear, keeping her in place as they swayed to the music.  Her body shivered in response, his breathy words scattering her thoughts in an instant.

“Careful, Archer, any closer and people will start thinking I’m your woman.”

“You are my woman.”

She’d meant to tease him, to ease the sudden possessive grip he had on her, but when his mouth edged towards hers, the gentle scrape of his lips against her skin and his whispered words ripped a soft shudder through her.


“Not yet.  In time, you will be.”

She smiled against him.  “Confident tonight, are you?”

“I call it like I see it.”  His fingers toyed with the seam of her dress at her lower back, and his lips hovered dangerously close to hers.

“You know we can’t.”

“I’m not in the mood to please The Circle right now and besides, some of the best things in life are the things that are forbidden.”

“What are we, Adam and Eve?”

His face softened in a breathtaking grin and in a gentle movement, he released her, twirled her around, and drew her back to cradle her in a possessive hold that enthralled rather than annoyed her.

She longed to throw caution to the wind and kiss him, take what he offered, and lose herself in this gorgeous man.  Screw the consequences.

Instead, she opted for the safe route.  “Stop it, Archer.”

“Scared to admit the truth?”


“Liar,” he breathed against her lips before pulling back.

She blinked, trying to ignore the flash of desire that raced through her body and pretend her senses hadn’t just been overrun by pure male sexiness.


“I should go,” she said, needing some distance between them.  After all, she was here for a reason and it wasn’t to spend the night in Archer’s arms – on the dance floor or otherwise.

The silent motion of his head agreed with her, but she could see that he was worried.

She didn’t blame him.  Beneath her cool façade, even she was worried.

But she had a plan.  One she wouldn’t share with her Keepers just yet.

And she hoped to hell it worked.
