I didn’t know what to expect of Keep Me Safe, I kind of went into it blindly, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I truly enjoyed this book. I knew I was going to be hooked on this story as soon as I read the prologue to the book. This book had a lot of great qualities and it kept me intrigued all the way through. I had a hard time putting it down. This was one of those books that once you start you just know something is going to happen and as you turn the page you just keep wondering when it is all going to go down. This book was a great mix of a sweet love story and a suspenseful thriller. I will tell you that this book does have the insta-love element to it, but it really didn’t bother me at all. I thought it actually worked with this story. Even though there was that instant attraction thing, the author still created a great pace for the characters to really get to know each other and not rush into a physical relationship. The only thing I saw as a negative was I felt the ending was slightly rushed. We got to the peak of the suspense at about 90% and then it just ended really quick. I think there needed to be a little more suspense throughout the story to make it a little more believable. But it didn’t deter me from enjoying this story.
The story is about Sadie and Parker. Sadie is a broken girl who is trying to put the pieces of her life back together after a failed marriage to a really bad man. Sadie was a very strong and courageous person in my eyes. What she went through with her ex-husband Brent was horrible. It showed great strength for her to escape that situation. In this story Sadie is building a life on her own when she gets pulled over for speeding. This is where Parker comes in because he is the cop who pulls her over. After that meeting Sadie runs into Parker again at her neighbors house for a BBQ. From there they hit it off and decide to see what happens. Like I said earlier….I liked the pace the author took with these two characters. Parker was so patient and amazing. He never once pushed Sadie to open up, he knew she would do it in her own time when she was ready. Parker definitely makes my list for BBF.
I liked all of the secondary characters in this book. None of them really stood out to me but they were all very supportive and welcoming to Sadie and Parker. Of course this book has one person who you have to HATE and that was Brent. Even though he isn’t in the story that much, what is in the story about him, I seriously wanted to junk punch him and he got what he deserved in the end.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is look for a fast paced read with a great love story and some suspense to help keep you turning the page. This will definitely not be that last book I read by this author.
