Keep You From Harm (Remedy #1) was one of the bigger surprises for me last year. I loved it so much and the paranormal aspect to it was especially unexpected. When the opportunity came along to participate in the tour for the sequel and second part of the Remedy duology, TO HAVE AND TO HARM, it was a no-brainer. Especially given the crazy cliffhanger at the end of the first book. The best news is that, not only is the cliffhanger resolved quickly, but I was completely caught up in Raiel

My thoughts…

One step forward, two steps back. By now I’m so far back, she’s completely out of my reach. Was it hard for her to leave me? Did it tear her heart out, the same heart she promised was mine forever just seconds before she ripped it away?

Book two has tension, power and dismal. Forget all the good that had occurred in Keep You From Harm because To Have and To Harm excels. As of now, I am having an impediment writing my review for this novel. I was enamored with the first boo

its a better sequel at least

"To Have and to Harm" is at least much better than the first book and have comparatively a presence of plot that lacked in the first book. First book for me was just another high school romance. The sequel starts off from the cliff hanger that the first one left us in but to be honest i could still predict where it was bound to go.

The book starts off nicely just like the first book and brings you a whole lot of twists and turns only to revoke back to the romance and
I thought this would be like a trilogy kind of series but this one already concludes the Remedy series as far as i understand with that ending. All i can say is that Raeille is one lucky b*tch to have one amazing supportive hot boyfriend like Lucas Diesel to be there for her no matter what. Seriously someone give this guy a medal or something for his effort. I am glad that they got together again after being apart for so many months and Lucas was about to give up when Apollo decides to intervene ...more

3.5 stars I love paranormal stories and the concept behind this series is very cool. I loved the first installment and couldn’t wait to get started on book 2.

However, it had been some time since I’d read book 1 and it was a little tough in the beginning since I had no idea what was going on for a while. Like the first 30%. I wish there had been some back story filling in

Initial Thoughts: I'm happy. After the ending from the first book, I didn't know what expect and how long things would take for answers and while it took time for events to turn out in the beginning it really picked up and I was very happy with how the story turned out.

The Characters & Story: Cliffhanger from book one: Raielle was dying and her father sent someone to pick her up but she had to leave everyone behind and n

I fell in love with Raielle and Lucas in the first Remedy series and I must say the love runs deep. Ms Doxer does an amazing job of keeping the reader engaged. The level of mystery was astonishingly well devised. What I mean by that is I knew stuff was going to happen and secrets were going to be revealed and every single execution was perfect! I want to say there will be more and I cant wait to see what happens next but everything so far see

I was given a complimentary copy of To Have and To Hold by Debra Doxer from hooked on Books in return for a honest review.

To Have and to Harm is the second and concluding novel to the Remedy Series. While Raiellie was using her healing powers she knew little about, it didn't go as planned. In the previous book, Keep you from harm, Raielle is left fighting for her life. She goes on a desperate search to find her father in hope that he can heal her. But what she finds tests her in ways she would a

Last year, I had the chance to discover an amazing story called Keep You From Harm by Debra Doxer. It was an awesome story where we meet Rae who had the ability to heal people and transfer diseases etc. In Book #1 Rae's mother had just been murdered and then she had discovered that she had an older half-brother called Kyle - it was here that she made new friends -one in particular Lucas. At the end of the book #1 we read as Rae discovered who her father was and that she was dying as instead of t ...more

I don't usually review books but this one I had to. I love the paranormal romance genre, but am tired of reading about the same girl over and over. It is always about a girl who discovers her powers/gifts then to find out she is the key to saving the world. This series was different. First of all, I loved the main characters. They were well written and easy to relate to, but the best part was that then entire world's fate did not depend on them. To me it was a romance with some paranormal aspect ...more

When you combine paranormal with any kind of romance, the hopeless romantic and lover of all things paranormal in me can't help but get excited.

I adored the first book, Doxer took me by surprise with her ability to weave a story full of the elements I love. With characters that took captured my heart and a romance that was sure to please anyone.

To say I was overeager to read the next book and have it be through Lucas' eyes (and Ray's) doesn’t even express my excitement enough. To say I was boun

Raielle and Lucas are devoted to each other but their love is tested every step of the way. They are each willing to give up their life for the other and in doing so Raielle makes some very bad decisions. Her life is overflowing with lies and deceit and she is stunned when she finds out more about her past. The author's attention to detail kept me consumed with anticipation.

One word. A-MAZINGGGGGG. After reading the summary I knew I was going to like the book. While reading the book I really just fell in love with the story. To Have and to Harm was much better than I expected. I wish I could give this 10 stars but I can't do that. There is no possible way for someone to hate this book or this series. There may be less paranormal activity in this book and less involving paranormal species such as vampires or werewolves but as a paranormal lover, this is definitely o ...more

I was excited for this book and honestly didn't really know what to expect but it went beyond and above my expectations. i don't know if this really is the last book but i hope it isn't because their story deserves to continue!

I was so excited to read To Have and To Harm and see how Raielle and Lucas wold work everything out. I loved the first book, loved both of them, so I was expecting to love this one as well. Only I didn't. Raielle was soooo annoying in this book! She turned into this stupid whiny poor me girl that I just couldn't stand. Some slight spoilers ahead.

"My heart has been tethered to his ever since."

As I write this, I am still in my book induced fog coma. To Have And To Harm is the brilliant follow up of the first book, Keep You From Harm. It went beyond where I ever thought it would go. While book one captivated me, book two grabbed my heart until the very end. And even now I am not sure if I even got it back.

As you probably already noted, To Have And To Harm is the sequel to Keep You From Harm. This book picks up right where the first book left off. You can read my review of the first book HERE. I've been anxiously awaiting this book since before I even turned the last page of the first book. I'm going to jump straight to the end and tell you that you won't have to deal with any nasty cliffhangers this time!

If I hadn't already been in love with Lucas, I would have definitely fallen this go around. H

This is the sequel in Debra Doxer’s Remedy series and concludes Rae and Luca’s journey. I loved the first book in this series and I was looking forward to this one. Here is my thoughts on To Have and To Harm:-


- I liked that Rae accepts her gift and learns how to use it while testing its limits.
- Luca is so devoted to Rae and will fight for her even if it means he will get hurt in the process.
- There are some despicable characters in this story and the extent of their evil ways is quite sur

I would like to thank the author and the group LOP for gifting me this book for a honest review!!! 

This book picks up where book one Keep you from Harm left off, Raielle is living in Los Angeles with her brother and father, after leaving Lucas behind she is like a zombie suffering with the guilt of the life that was taken to save hers and missing Lucas. But what Raielle doesn’t know is that Lucas has been living in LA too hoping to find her.

I really enjoyed Keep You From Harm so was excited to start To Have and To Harm. Unfortunately this fell a bit flat for me.

The beginning started out great, there was drama, action and even heart ache. I still had issues with Lucas. I find his protectiveness borders on obsession for me which just isn't healthy. I'm all for an Alpha MAN but Lucas is practically a boy still - it just wasn't meshing with me at all.

The book went on for too long, a lot could have been cut out and towards the last 30%
Raielle did some things to save someone she cared about, now she's confused about herself, and her power. She's back in California with a father she never knew about, and things seem to be getting more and more complicated, and she just doesn't understand what to do about it.

Lucas never gave up on Raielle, he followed her without having much luck of finding her, until he's finally able to see her again, and things a lot worse then he originally thought. He must do everything he can to keep her

I liked it.. I think. It's conflicting, yes there were some really awesome plot point, the suspense and action were engaging but it were the middle bits that gripe me.
I enjoyed raielle and Lucas relationship, it actually becomes much stronger in this story. Their love for each other is strong, they ate passionate and are always fierce about protecting and looking out for one another.
