#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.
I enjoyed the first book Keep Me Safe, it was the first book I have really read with paranormal in it. After reading it I was excited for In His Keeping and Maya did not disappoint. I actually enjoyed the second book better. I felt like it flowed very well and kept my interest the whole book. Ari’s story will captivate you from the get go. She is such a mystery but such a sweetheart at the same time. Ari describes Beau as not the most attractive guy, that he looks rough. I liked this because in most books the main male character is the hottest thing alive. In this book the guy that is rough around the edges and mean looking who really has an amazing heart is the main character. The way Beau takes care of Ari is what makes him sexy in this book. You will catch yourself scared and then cheering on Ari to get her revenge. I give this book 4 stars.
