I was sent a copy for review by the author and this does not affect my rating on this book.
The Keeper is the first in a series about a girl named Libby, an account dealing with tough emotions meets Nick Geary, who has secrets that could really rock her world. It brings different characters such as Betrayers, Watchers, and Keepers.
I really enjoyed this book. Once I started I couldn’t get enough of it and powered through it. Had I not had Comic Con I probably would have finished in a day or two.
The characters were well developed, the plot line was fun and interesting, and the writing was super well done. My only complaint is that the romance happened a bit too fast for me. But I did enjoy the romance that bloomed in the story. It was really cute, and I liked where everything went.
Libby was someone who wasn’t perfect. And I think I really enjoyed that about her. She suffers from panic and anxiety and that’s something you don’t see very often in characters, or it isn’t portrayed like it is in this book. I know that’s not specific but in order to avoid spoilers I can’t say too much! But I really enjoyed her character, her personality, and her strength throughout this book.
Nick was….he’s just such a cutie. I loved him! He was an interesting character that you really wanted to know more about! His family was awesome too, and I loved their dynamic. It had such a family vibe that you also don’t tend to see in books as well. It’s always great when the family has a bigger part than normally seen in other novels.
I hope in the next book we can read more about the Watchers, since I really liked reading about them, and we only really got a small bit of them in this book. I think overall the system of this book was interesting to read about, and was totally new to me. I loved diving into this world, and I cannot wait to see what the author has to write next!
Highly recommend this book!
