Elizabeth is a brilliant loner with a troubling secret she doesn't even know. As if the trauma of her mother being abducted before her eyes as a young girl wasn't enough, the small town she lives in thinks she’s crazy. That all changed when she met Michael, a mysterious and handsome man who identified with her like no one else before.

If you like books like The Vampire Diaries or the Southern Vampire Mysteries, you will love this. It's an exciting and intelligent take on paranormal that leaves you anxious for the next book in the series

Painful

I liked the way it started, but the dialogue got more and more inane as the book went on. The plot seemed to be planned so that you would read the next book. However, I do not like any of the characters well enough to read the next book.

This was a great book.. Truly addicting. I like that OL keeps all the supernaturals that we know and love but also introduces us to something new. A keeper is a new supernatural species to me along with other surprise's that OL adds in the book.

Izzy has been trying to find out what took her mother and everyone thinks that she is crazy. Her father is no help since he has become a drunk. She has to see shrink after shrink since everyone thinks that she is crazy. Then she meets Michael.

What a bombshell of a book! This is one paranormal read that left me saying witches, vampires and werewolves... oh my! The Keepers Awakening is not your run of the mill paranormal romance it has kicked it up a notch or two. Lizzy is not your normal average girl she's seen things that make her question her own sanity including the abduction of her mother right before her eyes yet she has no clue as to what or who took her it's all just a blur. Michael enters Lizzy's life and he is a total gentlem ...more

I was given this book in place of an honest review.

I will start by saying that if you read this book have an open mind and be ready to hear a bunch of stuff that you have never heard of before. All the technical stuff in this book just blew my mind. I also had to pick which guy I liked best, I mean you don't have to but I picked mine. I will tell you that this is a book about supernaturals and living in a world that we are just barley living in each day.

This book is mainly about a keeper, werewo

Awakening by O.L. Ramos is genius. Werewolves, vampires, witches, slayers and so much more. And they all need The Keeper! I was so enthralled with this book. I never put it down. The characters are as deep and fascinating as you would expect for one who has lived for centuries. There are no holes in the plot or inconsistencies in the characters. I cannot wait for the saga to continue! This book was an experience!

A book that gets your heart beating, takes your breath away. It drags you into the paranormal world and surrounds you with your own fantasies. You want to just keep reading and not put the book down because if you do it warps you back into the reality of our own real world. This author has was it takes to put you into your own world when reading.

O gods, I couldn't get past the first few pages of dialogue, dialogue!? That's cutting it close. Liz is annoying, obtuse and hearing her thoughts is painful and inane. "Oh no I think he can read me like a book" thankfully we can judge this book by its first few pages, open and shut it quick.

Izzy always kept to herself, but didnt expect such a huge change in her life. A werewolf and a vampire enter her life. She finds out things about the paranormal and that it is real! I truly enjoyed this book. 5/5 stars.

The Keeper: Awakening (The Keeper Series) O.L. Ramos

I received an ARC in exchange for honest review.

I was contacted by the author and asked to review this book. As usual I looked and read the Amazon sample and decided it was something I'd like to read. Its a very good début book from Mr Ramos and I'd love to read next in the series – hope you don't keep us waiting too long!

It begins with Elizabeth (Liz, Izzy) talking to her therapist about her background. Liz saw her mum taken by something – r

I absolutely loved this book....getting to know Lizzy, Michael and Vincent was a blast. I understood Lizzy, and could relate to being a loner and feeling like I didn't belong. I love how when she met Michael and trusted him with her story, that he handled her compassionately and gently and didn't make her feel alone anymore.

I wasn't sure if I was going to like Vincent, to tell you the truth. His immaturity and constant sarcasm truly got on my nerves at first. By the end of the story, I was smitt

LOVED it and already bought the rest in the series that's out!

Loved the spin of the 'Keeper' in this book along with the usual Vamps and Were's and 'Others'. It kept me turning the pages to see what Lizzy was getting into next and what Michael and Vincent would do to catch her attention and what they would do to keep her safe. This was a well written, thought out book. I really liked Vincent and his blunt sarcastic comments, he made me LOL alot. I didn't know who to root for, him or Michael, and

Wasn't sure what to expect but pleasantly surprised. Fast paced reading.. dives into Elizabeth who at first glance you may think she's a bit nuts. Stories of her mothers disappearance right in front of her lands her with a dad who dives into alcohol to forget. Elisabeth is brilliant well above her age level and almost has a masters. While in the diner she works at things begin to unravel...a mysterious man who she's drawn too enters her life and she unfolds and bears all and he doesn't run... fi ...more

What an incredible read. After reading many Paranormal books, sometimes the genre can get stale. Mr. Ramos has refreshed and added to! The characters are very specific and relatable,Vincent is my favorite. The story is packed with great fight scenes. The plot has some very interesting twists and turns and kept involved and interested the entire time. Also, Mr. Ramos has added a NEW paranormal Species that I, for one, have never heard of. The book is well written and flows easily.

Holy smokes this book was amazing!! At first I was thinking maybe Michael was the vamps but as soon as I learned about the notorious Vincent I knew exactly what he was. Werewolf or not Michael is a gentle kind soul keeping watch over the balance between humanity and supers. This book explodes into conspiracy between supers and secrets are revealed. The cliff hanger at the end ensures interest and determination to dive right into the second book The Keeper: Revenge, which I am about to do :)
