What they say: 

'“You lied to me, misled me, attacked me,” Declan murmured, dipping his head toward hers, “but what we had three months ago wasn’t fake, was it?” Kate's gaze faltered to his lips, heat pulsing between them. But she didn’t deny it. Declan Bennett has zero tolerance for thieves. He and his brothers, the Keepers, are fiercely protective of their witch, Sienna, and their privacy. So when Kate Carrigan breaks into their estate, he'll be damned if he lets the little wildcat get away with it – especially after she seduced him three months ago, leaving him buck-naked in a New Orleans hotel. Declan wants payback – and some answers. Before she was murdered, Kate's mother ingrained it in her not to trust anyone.  Kate’s magical powers make her a pawn in the war between good and evil, a war she’s always avoided.  Declan is everything she’s been taught to fear, even if she can’t forget the memory of his touch that one night… Trouble is brewing as the powers of evil regroup - bolder and hungrier than ever - and Kate is forced to choose a side. Hot romance, epic battles and action abound in Book 2 of The Keepers.'

What I Say

I would like to thank author Rae Rivers for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I first met the Bennett Brothers, Archer, Declan and Ethan way back in December, when I ordered the free prequel to Archer, Sienna.  I loved it that much that I devoured both Sienna and The Keepers Archer, reviews attached.

I have been eagerly awaiting The Keepers – Declan for months as I said in my previous review, you don’t just have 1 hot male but 3, although Ethan and Archer aren’t in this much they are still there.

Rae begins the story after the completion of The Keepers – Archer, although you can read all of these as standalone books I would recommend reading the first 2 as these give you a lot of background information.

We meet Kate as she is about to break into the Bennett estate using Declan’s  master key, she stole from him month previously.  Kate has a through mistrust of the magical world having been told by her mum not to trust them, not really understand what powers she has, she is left a letter after her mothers death that seems to indicate she needs the Bennett daggers to protect herself from magic, this is why is trying to break into their house.

I like Kate, she is vulnerable, yet strong, naïve but wise, a really nice mix of a character. She captures Declans heart and he captures hers but neither of them see this till well into the book.  Out of all the brothers, Declan was always my favourite, how can you not love a hot bad boy, he's absolutely gorgeous, even when the bad boy isn’t really that bad.  We get to see a caring side of Declan that we only see glimpses of in the other books

The story twists and weaves, I didn’t know which way Rae was going to take it, I was spellbound and couldn't put it down untill I had finished.  I love the way Rae throws things in when you are least expecting it making the story take turns that you don’t see coming.  Again there are witches and warlocks, along with more Keepers, not just the 3 main hot ones.

I would really recommend this series of books and I am eagerly awaiting The Keepers – Ethan, Rae you can expect me asking weekly when this will be out.  Although I can’t wait for the next installment I will be really sad to see this series end.

5 out of 5 stars
