Love and Mystery

Love and Mystery

I thought this was a fantastic story from beginning to end. Reader beware the sex scenes are extremely steamy. I don't want to ruin this for another reader so I won't go into in depth detail, but there were certainly more mysteries than answers. I was actually surprised by the ending (which doesn't happen often) and am seriously hoping for a sequel.

I have enjoyed this book very much but i have loads of questions about things related to the book but the Author did make it very clear when purchasing the book it is a cliff hanger. I have already downloaded book 2 & 3 & I am looking forward to reading them

Torture! You know who does that? The character Nick (to a degree), but also author Robyn Roze. That's sort of a compliment... because this Suspense Mistress has left me wanting to know about Olivia's past even more than Jake desires to know about it. And also, what exactly her future plan is.

The erotic scenes were good. Nice level of foreplay new-adult-courting. But it's the suspense between those scenes that held my attention.

I also like that Olivia wasn't an outright "Tomboy," didn't feel li

I'm hooked.

I just finished reading the first part of Olivia's story and can't wait to see what will come next as she sorts out her life.

A Five-Star Romantic Suspense!

It's risky business reading an author for the first time. You don't know whether you're going to be entertained or bored, or somewhere in between. But that's part of the excitement; not knowing, but still there's that risk. But after checking out Robyn Roze's blog, social media sites, and reading the preview pages of her book, Keeper, I took the risk.

I'm delighted to say my "reading blind date" with Keeper by Robyn Roze turned out to be an exciting entertaining read

163p Olivia Marshall's life was idyllic until it all came crashing down. Literally. Now she must save herself from the man who pulled her from the wreckage a decade ago, before he destroys her, dragging her down into his dark, tormented world. She's taken the first steps toward gaining her freedom, and has mapped out a plan for the future. However, when a near accident places Jake McCloud squarely in her path, Olivia decides that delaying her plan may be just what she needs. With Jake's playboy ...more
Oh this book frustrated me. I'm not sure if I will read the next one or not. I understand the writer wanting to keep you in suspense but we never get some major things disclosed.

Like, who is Nick to Olivia, why is he her guardian, why did she used to call him brother, etc... Like, what exactly happened with "the accident" was it a fire? A car accident? And where the heck are they? Are they in canada? USA? Where does she go home to? Where is Jake's home?...

I don't believe that if any of this info

I finished reading Keeper very quickly. A lot of steamy romance, and well, yes... sex. The story of Olivia Marshall's life has barely been touched on, giving just enough information to catch your interest and make you want to read the next book to learn more. I look forward to the rest of her story and finding out if she and Jake are going to last or if Nick will change her mind and her plans. I definitely can't wait to find out what the tragic event was that drew Nick and Olivia together.
So far

This is a nice romance story, it has a great storyline a nice flow with unexpected twists. The characters agrees are great and well defined. It has a nice and very interesting plot. The story is "fun", it's a romance story indeed, and the languish is easy on you. Read it with your significant other.

Really easy to read, but I was interested in an actual story. Not sex every five minutes. Plus, we didn't find anything out about the main characters past, which was the most interesting part of the story! So that bugged me. I won't be reading the rest of the series. ...more
