Review: Keep You From Harm by Debra Doxer

Title: Keep You From Harm 
Author: Debra Doxer
Genre: Mature YA Paranormal Romance 
Release Date: September 25, 2013

They weigh you down. I’ve kept a secret all my life. It’s my mother’s secret, too. I inherited it from her along with a unique ability that only we possess. She’s gone now, another victim of addiction. If her death isn’t enough to bring me to my knees, her betrayal flays me to the bone. Because the secret my mother and I have been keeping is just one of many she’d kept. She never told me I have an older brother. And now he’s here, eager to be my guardian.

There is no one else. So I move across the country to live with this stranger, my brother. But experience has taught me that most situations are temporary and forming attachments only leads to hurt in the end. That’s why I’m determined to keep to myself in this new place, struggling to seem aloof while I’m quietly breaking apart. 

Then I meet Lucas…

His magnetism is hard to resist, and most girls at school aren’t resisting. I don’t fall so easily though, especially not for guys who use their good looks as a weapon. From the start, our interactions are tense and volatile. I know it’s because I’m denying the unwelcome desire that grips me when he’s near. I think he feels it, too. He looks at me with an intensity that threatens to unhinge my resolve. Soon he’s trying to break through the walls that past hurts have built. 

But I’m not what I appear to be, and it wouldn’t be fair to get involved with him. At least that’s what I tell myself. Until a terrible act of violence reveals that Lucas has a secret, too. It’s a secret that links us together and ties us to an evil history I could never have imagined.


Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Raielle, has kept a secret about her unique ability. She has inherited this from her mom. When her mom dies, she is thrown into a new life and discovers she has an older brother eager to take her in. What Raielle doesn’t know is that the secret of her ability is just the start of secrets. There is so much more.

When Raielle meets Lucas, sparks fly. They are two magnets from the moment they meet. Because of Raielle’s past she is not eager in fessing up to the feeling she gets around Lucas. She has always learned to keep her emotions and feelings away. Yet, when she is near Lucas all she wants to do is FEEL. Their connection is undeniable, intense, and passionate. She later finds out that Lucas also has a secret and that they are connected in ways they never thought possible.

The writing was outstanding. Brilliant and addicting, Keep You From Harm is a MUST read for those who love Paranormal Romance. I consider myself a true contemporary romance lover, but because of this book I am having a MAJOR book hangover and I need more! I cried, I laughed, I cheered everyone on. These characters are so memorable and will stay with me for a very long time. Every single character in this book added to this story in many ways. The ups and downs of this book was unbelievable. Just when you think the secrets are all out, there’s more. I have a feeling we have no idea what we’re in for in the next book, and I cannot wait!

Although this story is far from over, I am so glad I read it. I have fallen in love with paranormal romance all over again! Debra Doxer. I was a fan when I read your contemporary, but you have sealed the deal now! I am forever a fan of yours! Despite the cliffhanger, I know the wait will be worth it. This beautiful story about love and secrets is both powerful and fascinating. 5++++ stars!!
