Book Review The Keepers by Monique O'Connor James
Author: Monique O'Connor James
Released: 5th June 2011
Published by: Astraea Press
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Blurb: Jess denies God. In his infinite wisdom, he's taken everyone she's ever loved. Moving to the French Quarter was a ploy to erase the guilt she felt for rebuking her faith. Perhaps, if she hadn't met Justin, an angel preoccupied with getting back into God's good graces, and drowning in his hatred for humanity, her plan would have worked.
Justin's general disdain for the human race makes him difficult to like, but some higher power has appointed him her keeper. Justin's convinced he can mend her broken relationship with her maker, but in the process he learns a thing or two about his own humanity.
Never mind falling in love, that's not supposed to happen. In fact, it may even be forbidden. Jess just wants Justin to understand her plight, and he wants to protect her from a world she doesn't know.
If neither are equipped to save the other, then whose soul will live and whose will perish?
My Rating: A Keeper!
My Review: I absolutely LOVED this book! And the cover...wow!!
I was so happy when I was given the chance to review this book. I've read quite a few books about angels but nothing like this. This story is very unique in it's own way, and one that'll stick with you.
I was completely pulled in from the beginning and it was so hard to put down. A book about God, faith, angels, tragedy, heartbreak, danger, good & evil. With amazing and exciting characters, who will have you laughing, crying, in disbelief and maybe throw in a little anger. *winks* a truely awe inspiring read. I'm not a very religious person but with this book I found that it wasn't too much, I really enjoyed every aspect of it in the story.
The ending will have you wanting more and will leave you with a smile. I'd recommend this book to everyone that's open for a different experience in Paranormal.
Thank you Monique for your amazing story and I hope to read more about Jess and Justin soon.
