Would it ever truly end for her? Peace was an elusive, taunting desire. Startled by the firmness of his command and his terse tone, her eyelids fluttered open and her gaze lifted falteringly to his.
He gathered her hands in his, ignoring her visible flinch at his touch. She braced herself for the tide of emotion to swamp her.

To be filled with whatever darkness he hid from the rest of the world. Her gift was a sick twist of fate. As though fate was playing a cruel joke and laughing at her expense. Because she could only sense the bad in people. Underlying evil. Malevolence or bad intentions. She was never able to share the good. Only what they tried to hide, what they never wanted others to know about them. She only wanted to survive, to live.
To enjoy something as simple as an ordinary day without the oppressive weight of so much evil bearing down on her. Was that so much to ask? At times she felt as though Ramie St. No blackness, no evil taint on his soul. It was clear in his eyes, his expression.
She should be furious. She should be screaming at him for the ultimate betrayal. Because the man hunting her would find her. She was only delaying the inevitable. And it was no way to live. So much fear. It made her weak. What if… What if he truly could keep her safe?
What if he could prevent her agonizing death at the hands of a madman? She was afraid to hope, to let herself be lulled into a false sense of security.
Her pulse was a rapid staccato against her skin. She stared helplessly back at him, a single tear trailing warmly down her cheek, a contradiction to the icy chill that held her in its grip. But you have to breathe for me. Like this. She watched as he demonstrated sucking in deep breaths, his nostrils flaring, and then expelling, the warmth of his breath on her chin. Some of the terrible panic began to ease.
Slowly, her lungs opened up and allowed a shaky intake. She shuddered violently, shaking off the chokehold anxiety had on her. She had yet to say a word to him. And now that her panic attack was abating, she had no idea what to say at all.
He was here. What could she tell him? Would he even believe her? His expression grew dark, his eyes flaring with anger. It was instinctive for her to recoil when he lifted a hand toward her face.
He frowned even harder at her reaction. Oh, she sensed anger. Deep, seething rage. The man who wanted to kill her. She could sense nothing from him, which meant he had no dark secrets. No violent tendencies. It was the way in which he said protect you that struck a chord inside her. The peace she was so desperate to achieve. For her to say something instead of numbly staring at him like a brainless idiot.
God, where to start? Find his sister. Weariness assailed her. Fatigue crashed into her like the surf against a rocky coast.
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.
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. Whether she liked it or not she was now fully under his care and protection and that meant in all areas You do have someone to live for, Ramie.
You have me 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. 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. View all 6 comments.
I am so utterly disappointed in this book. This is not the Maya Banks I know and love. Right from the start the writing was horrible. I felt like I was reading bad fan fiction or something. Honestly, this is more reminiscent of the quickly spun off tales you find with ebook only authors. The premise was interesting enough to snag my attention but what I've read so far and I put it down half through to never pick up again is crap.
Just utter crap. The whole psychic hunting a psychic killer has I am so utterly disappointed in this book. The whole psychic hunting a psychic killer has been done before and it has been done well! If you were as disappointed by this book as I was, try a Kay Hooper Bishop series book. Some of the early books in that series were well written and scary, but they had characters you could connect with and an actual romance.
Maya Banks - Darkest Before Dawn -(ang)
Here's a summary of what made me stop reading this book: He learns his sister is safe, but decides to leave the defenseless woman who just helped find his sister alone and in obvious agony.
Then tosses that out the window in favor of "just have sex because it'd be fun" Ooh, let me slip you my magic dick cure all! One brother welcomes the heroine as the "change" his traumatized sister needs, then promptly changes his opinion a few hours later. The sister who was rescued by the woman is incredibly petulant and nasty. Here's a woman in obvious need of help with bruises on her face and she couldn't be bothered to at least thank her?
Then she not only continues on trying the think and remember facial features, she has sex with the hero Sexy fun times are what migraines are made for Two examples: Oh my god! How could they know?! After trying to figure out how they didn't know, I put the book down and shook my head. And, reading some other reviews on here, I'm actually pretty happy with my decision. So not worth my time!
Maya Banks you are better than this! Short review first appeared on my blog: Book Addict I received a copy via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review Keep Me Safe is the first Maya Banks novel I've ever read and I'm thinking that if her other novels are like this one, then I'm probably not going to read anything else by her. While the idea of the novel is pretty cool and promising, the characters are predictable, annoying, and way too dramatic, the romance is forced, obsessive, and too instant, and the storyline was rushed a Short review first appeared on my blog: While the idea of the novel is pretty cool and promising, the characters are predictable, annoying, and way too dramatic, the romance is forced, obsessive, and too instant, and the storyline was rushed and full of plot holes.
Banks's novel is told from two perspectives: Caleb and Ramie. I had so many issues with these two characters because it was like Banks just needed to write a last minute story with two characters that fell completely flat.
Caleb literally falls for a girl he forces to do something horrendous for him. Then, he spends a year pining for this mysterious girl, who holds no grudges against him. And even though she helped find someone Caleb loves, his family still hates her.
Ramie, on the other hand, is one of those characters who the author tries very hard to make an example of.
She's supposed to be tough, independent, and brave. What I saw, however, was a girl who thought someone she'd seen a year before could be her saviour. She's the type of girl who, though she knows she's going to just end up hurting herself, does whatever she can to both a appear heroic and brave and b move the storyline along. She was infuriating. There are characters who are written as weak as one of their character traits, and then there are characters, like Ramie, who are weak because they are written weakly.
The overbearing "I must protect you at all costs because you're a fragile creature" act was made worse by Ramie allowing Caleb to not only continue his smothering of her, but enabling him by acting like a damsel in distress, when she's the one who got herself into certain situations in the first place.
The dialogue was overdramatic, the constant use of the descriptive phrase "bruise the skin" or along those lines , and the translucent skin covering the final twist, made this such a blah book.
I got through it because it was a quick read, but I was seriously disappointed. Maybe if you like Maya Banks you'll enjoy this one, but this wasn't for me.
View all 4 comments. This was such a disappointment - nothing excited me!!! I found the characters totally unlikeable The hero This is the most controlling and irritating man ever!!! The whole thing of feeling "bad" because he caused the heroine so much pain The plot I am not convinced about this series.
Maybe I should give it a chance and read book 2. Maya Banks is an author I have heard so much about, but for some reason I have only read a handful of her books. I was excited to see why this author is so popular, and was hoping to find a new romantic suspense series to follow.
But, I have to confess I was not a big fan of this one.
I liked Raime, but for those who like a kick butt heroine, who despite the physical and mental torment of having lived through countless attacks via her psychic connection to other victims, rises to the occasion and shows off her mental toughness, then you may find Raime a little too tepid. She was a little whiny and seemed to teeter on the edge of an emotional breakdown for the majority of the book, but did get old after a while.
Even the other characters in the book, who should have been thankful to Raime, were a little hard on her. Go figure. Overall, the plot was a kind of weak, the bad guy too shadowy, and the characters were hard to warm up to, but this is only the first book in the series, so perhaps things will firm up a little in the next installment.

Review posted at: I liked the direction the story line was going and loved that it was creepy. Then the story took a backwards slide and it took sometime before it picked back up. I thought Caleb was a good character, but I found it hard to believe that he fell in love with Ramie so f Review posted at: I thought Caleb was a good character, but I found it hard to believe that he fell in love with Ramie so fast.
I loved Ramie's psychic abilities and I thought her back story was well done, however I got tired of her thinking she was a coward throughout most of the book. I felt some of them took place at a very inappropriate times, which made me feel that they were just added for the sake of adding a sex scene. Without them this book would have been a bust. I felt the way they caught the killer was not very believable , it was rushed, and would have loved for this part to be drawn out a little more.
I have to say that I thought the overall part of Ramie's abilities was a great touch, but it could have been a much better story if it would have continued on the eerie side, instead of the romance, which I felt fell flat in the end. It should have focused on one or the other. View all 28 comments.
Actual rating 1. I wasn't interested in the story or the characters. Ramie St. Clair has a special psychic gift or curse as Ramie sees it, to locate people. Unfortunately, when she uses her gift it costs her emotionally and physically because Ramie feels everything the victim does, as though it happened to her.
Caleb Devereaux is a desperate man. His sister, Tori has been abducted by a madman and Ramie is his only hope of finding her in time.
The trouble is she disappears immediately after Caleb leaves to tend to his sister, and Ramie stays of the radar. Caleb is determined to find Ramie, and has researched her fully since she took off. He feels a connection to her even just meeting her that one time. Caleb is torn to bits over what he put her through.
So when Ramie finally materializes asking for his help and protection from a crazed serial killer, Caleb jumps at the chance to make things right and keep her safe. I gravitate towards stories with an element of mystery and danger.
Keep Me Safe was a combination of all of that with a steamy romance included! The story held an air suspense throughout and I was on the edge of my seat wondering what danger would come next.
This is why she went off the grid before Caleb found her and then again after helping to locate his sister. However, it seems her stalker has no problem finding her even with all the precautions she takes, and she just narrowly escapes him when she finally calls Caleb for help. Caleb felt like he already knew Ramie somewhat because he researched into her life to the point of obsession, so he felt like he knew her even with only meeting once.
There was a lot of action and danger in Keep Me Safe that had me anxiously biting my nails it some parts! Caleb and Ramie are put through the ringer in this intense conclusion.

What if a person is able to locate missing people just through a touch? In the a new series from Ms. Banks, Ramie is able to help find a missing person by touch. Sometimes wondrous gifts contain a negative flip side. For Ramie, the flip side is she connects with the missing person and experiences what they feel and more. If the people are merely deadbeat fathers skipping out on alimony or child support, it may not be the worst thing. U Ever lost something and wish you had a way to find it again?
Unfortunately for Ramie, she is requested for cases involving foul play or kidnapping. Too worn out, Ramie escapes to hide from everyone. This doesn't stop a determined man from finding her. One of determined men is Caleb Devereaux. He is at his wits end and wants to find his kidnapped sister.
He won't rest until Ramie helps him pinpoint his sister's location. When their paths cross and Ramie is tricked into helping, it won't be the last time they meet.
When the other man stalking Ramie gets too closed, Ramie must reach out Caleb for help. The story moves a bit slower than other Ms. Bank stories. The characters do follow her usual pattern. There is an alpha male lead who believes he can protect everyone and is proven otherwise. A female lead is misunderstood and treated poorly despite her being one of the good guys. From a character development, it's decent and easy to understand each character.
Even if some of the minor characters are annoying and need a good slap upside the head, it is easy to step into their shoes. Perhaps if some of the angst injecting family scenes are cut and the repetitive dialog are to be removed, the story would flow at a better pace.
In addition, it would make the story feel more tightly written. The plot is of medium complexity. It's straightforward in the conflicts and the resolutions. The conflict is obvious even when throwing in a paranormal element. For those who don't enjoy stories involving speculative paranormal powers, this story will be difficult to believe.
Realists will need to suspend their disbelief in order to finish the book. For those who enjoy or are indifferent to psychic abilities, this is no bother. There is a thrill aspect to this story. For me, it is enjoyable even if it stretched my ability to believe the latest twist in the psychic powers.
Keep Me Safe
Recommended to those who enjoy paranormal stories with a psychic thread. ARC provided by the Publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review. This series features a group of brothers running a security firm and trying to find their kidnapped sister.
Caleb Devereaux is determined to bring psychic in to help their search. Ramie has a gift that wears on her soul. They are mutually attracted to one another but continually deny their feelings. As the story unfolds it does not seem believable. Caleb has that Alpha Male attitude and when he meets Ramie he instantly wants to protect her. While Ramie wants to be strong her weaknesses have a way of taking over her personality.
Even though this book was written from duo POV I found it very repetitive. The dialogue continued revolving in circles and kept the story from progressing. Her leading female character appeared much more wishy- washy than her other leading female characters.
Both leading characters in this series seem to fall flat and their personalities did not jump off the pages. The story moved at a slow pace and I found myself speed reading it rather than absorbing it. The repetitive dialogue spoiled the book.
As I closed this book I was grateful to be finished and found no desire to read the next two books in this series. They should of demanded rewrites and better pacing. I have read all of Maya Banks books and I have to honestly say that the last three published books were subpar.
She is an excellent writer and always delivers a good book. I am very sad to write this review. It's like breaking up with an old friend that you've had good times with but now just don't enjoy, it can be hard. I keep going back expecting to capture the earlier magic but each time, I find no magic. I never intended to read Keep Me Safe because, well, me and Maya are on a break.
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. Even if it costs him his life. Until one night forever alters the course of their future, when a devastated Gracie disappears without a trace, leaving Zack to agonize over what happened to the girl he loved.
As the years pass, his desperate efforts to find her uncovered nothing. Now working for Devereaux Security, he stumbles across a painting featuring a special place only he and Gracie would know. The image is too perfectly rendered for it to be coincidence. His Gracie must be alive. When he finally tracks her down, he is shocked—and heart-broken—to discover the wounded shell of the girl he once knew and still loves.
Her psychic gifts are gone, and worse, she believes he betrayed her all those years ago.Terrorist cells and fanatics saw them as easy targets and as nothing more than the expansion of their empire. Just go and take care of your sister.
She knows she can't go on alone anymore. The soldiers were picking through the ruins looking specifically for the Westerners—the people who ran the relief center and offered aid to refugees. Every time she uses it, it costs her a piece of herself.
Keep Me Safe
Ramie was somewhere else. There was obviously something about the woman that gave Bristow an edge, imagined or not. But goddamn it, he would make this up to her.
