They weigh you down. I’ve kept a secret all my life. It’s my mother’s secret, too. I inherited it from her along with a unique ability that only we possess.

Keep you from harm is one of these books that are hard to write about. On the one hand it was very beautiful and unique story, that holds a lot of potential, on the other it was dull and had some plot holes. Still, I read this story fast, it was enjoyable and I don’t regret picking it up.


Raielle was born with the power to heal, just like her mother. She has amazing ability to heal every wound, disease, illness. Just one quick touch and people are cured. Her hands are magical.

Tenía muchas expectativas con este libro. Me he llevado un batacazo increíble, empezando con eso de los poderes. En mi opinión, creo que todo hubiese sido un poco más... ligero sin eso. Pero claro, quitando esto el libro se queda prácticamente en nada. Y tampoco habría un segundo libro. Bueh.

Keep You from Harm se puede resumir en drama, drama y más drama. Si este drama es lógico y razonable, no tengo ningún problema. Pero ¿esto? Muchas peleas entre Lucas y Raielle se podrían haber ahorrado con u

This book was really good. Better than I expected. Full of surprises. There were a lot of things that I absolutely did not see coming in this book. I’ll be honest and tell you that I thought this was just the story of a broken girl who meets a broken guy and then they fall in love. Wrong. So very, very wrong. It’s more than that, a shit load more than that.

I won't make a little summary for it, because you should definitely g

First of all, I was instantly drawn to this book because of the cover. I’m not sure exactly what it is that caught my eye, but it seemed to shout, “Read me, I’m an awesome book!” and it didn’t lie.

Keep You From Harm begins with tragedy. Raielle (Pronounced Ray-elle, and don’t offend her by saying it incorrectly. lol) is from a broken home. She has the worst kind of childhood memories with a mom who has always been an alcoholic and drug addict. In the very beginning Raielle is describing her home

Keep You From Harm is a story that follows a young woman named Raielle. She is going through something most kids couldn't imagine. She found her mom murdered and has found that she has a brother her mom lied about. Her brother, Kyle, has taken her in and will watch over her. She is now going to a new school and has quickly made friends even though she doesn't really want to. She has a se

Wow, Keep You From Harm was so good! Really good. I got it for review maybe a month or two ago and by the time I got around to reading it, I forgot that it had a paranormal element to it. So when I started reading I thought it was going to be your normal contemporary, slightly angsty romance. But wow, was I wrong. I mean there was romance, and drama but there was also this really cool ability to heal woven in. I have read plenty of paranormal and special ability books, but Keep you From Harm fe ...more

The good: Refreshing and intriguing plot; good pacing, and likable characters.

The bad: Nothing that I could pick up on.

--For some reason, this is the first thing that popped up in my mind when I learned of Raielle's secret.

Raielle is just your average teenage girl EXCEPT she isn't exactly normal. She has a secret, well, gift if you will, that can be seen as an endowment or even a curse.

Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Raielle, has kept a secret about her unique ability. She has inherited this from her mom. When her mom dies, she is thrown into a new life and discovers she has an older brother eager to take her in. What Raielle doesn’t know is that the secret of her ability is just the start of secrets. There is so much more.

When Raielle meets Lucas, sparks fly. They are two magnets from the moment they meet. Because of Rai
This was better than I expected. I was a bit wary that it will be the usual cliche story of new girl going to a new school getting the attention of the only unattainable boy in school. While it has the aforementioned formula in the storyline, there is also the paranormal aspect which was executed effectively in the story. Raeille Blackwood grow up in a very unstable environment, fleeting from one foster home to another till her mom got custody of her again and despite coming from a broken family ...more

Keep you from harm, is a breathtaking novel it completely raptured me with emotions I couldn't even contained. As you read this novel you wouldn't believe its a paranormal, this was so shocking to me because the author has totally sucked you in, you just thinks it's a young adult contemporary novel. Raeille is a young beautiful,selfless, smart girl who has a gift that is unbelievable to endure. This power she has to heal people is a gift and a curse. Her mother also has this power too, but her m ...more

This is a very interesting, unique, well written story and a great read. Raielle has had a troubled past and a secret she can't share. She meets Lucas and her life seems to start looking up before something happens that threatens her life. I think Raielle is a remarkable character and I really like her. Lucas has secrets of his own that he is keeping. The way the relationship developed bet

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the author through the Goodreads' group "Lovers of Paranormal". First of all, this book makes me feel more like the book nerd I know I am. On the outside I try to act all calm and mature, but on the inside, I see myself with crazy eyes and pulling my hair as I wait, not so patiently, for the next book, to find out what happens next. If you haven't figured it out, yes, it has one of those pesky cliffhangers that we love to hate. This book ...more

This book was amazing!! I haven't read a book I connected this much to in a long time. This isn't one of your average boy meets girl with a little paranormal thrown in.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal) So many twists and turns and surprises. I couldn't put the book down. Raielle comes face-to-face with family she did not know she had. And a life she did not know existed. You will go through a emotional roller coaster with Raielle. I highly recommend this mature YA romance. I can't wait for the second book. Mrs. Doxer left it with a very good cliffhanger. What will happen to Raielle next?

First Thoughts: 5 stars Holy crap this was good. Dark, gritty, and full of secrets…this book is why I love my paranormal romances! I feel sorry for whatever book I start next because Keep You From Harm was pretty epic.

Plot, Pacing, Setting, and Style: Raielle had to move across the US to live with her brother. She didn’t really want to go, but she had no on

its the usual stuffs

"Keep you from harm" sounds pretty interesting and capturing both from its title and cover but sadly as you go through the book, you realize that it goes through the same stuff that you usually get in a paranormal romance. couple tied with the advantages and disadvantages of supernatural powers and its consequences.

In my opinion the author is good, the story had a lot of potential as the initial track was very promising but it suddenly deviated to the same old high school

I have no idea what I just read. The first half drove me nuts. The whole back and forth between Ray & Lucas seriously made me want to pull my hair out. Yet when I hit that middle mark it changed and the book flew by! I couldn't read fast enough! And that ending! My heart is still pounding and cracking with pain. Can't wait to read the next book! Oh poor Lucas! :(

What a refreshing paranormal novel. I was hooked from the first page. Debra Doxer's writing style is captivating. This is the first book in a long while that has kept me on edge and staying up way past my normal bed time. Well worth it.

I loved both the Hero and Heroine. Although the characters are young and in High School they have both experienced rough home lives. Lucas is a little mysterious and has his moments of alpah which is hot. Raielle is also a great heroine. She is quirky and hesitat

GREAT characters, GREAT dialogue, GREAT suspense, GREAT romance….then the ugly cliffhanger!

The characters actions and dialogues in this story were perfect. The teenagers acted and talked like teens. Raielle’s toddler-aged niece, well, it was easy to visualize my own children at that age. I REALLY enjoyed the dialogue in this story! I also enjoyed seeing the relationships, and not just between the two MCs. Every character and relationship was unique. I could easily visualize every character that

Secrets can be overwhelming , especially when you can't tell anybody in case it will backfire on you. Keep You From Harm reminded me a bit of the tale of Doctor Doolittle , where instead of the main character Raielle being able to talk to animals , she can heal those who are sick. All she has in this world is her mother , who can do the same thing. What happens next though is that Raielle will come home from school and find her mother dead , murdered and left in her own pool of blood. From then ...more

This is one of my favorite genres. The paranormal, romantic in me can't help it, I eat them up as fast as I can. There is just something to be said about a good sweet romance with a slight paranormal edge to it and great characters that I can't help but fall in love with.

I loved Raielle the moment I met her and after only the first few pages with already a murder, a hint of the paranormal and an unknown family just waiting to be discovered, knew that this was going to be my kind of story and one

Drawing and moving, this story forces the reader to delve in real life issues and a slice of the otherworldly made tangible through typical high school drama one would expect of such an age.

OMGosh! Can you say cliffhanger? And yes, that is upsetting, mainly because I'm not a huge fan of endings that don't end. Kind of like someone who leaves on a few chips left in the bottom of the bag. But don't let my statement fool you. This is a well-written, intricately mapped-out tale of a seventeen-year-o

Two words : Simply Amazing. I loved this book and just couldn't put it down. Lately I've been more into New Adult novels and having read a Young Adult novel for a while because the characters tend to get whiny and annoying. This wasn't the case. I was surprised at how mature the characters where. I loved the connection between Raielle and Lucas. I loved how caring and selfless Raielle was, she would risk herself for others no matter the cost. I loved how loving and understanding Luca was. I love
