In His Keeping by Maya Banks Review

In His Keeping
Slow Burn #2
By: Maya Banks
Releasing January 27th, 2015
Avon Romance

#1 bestselling author Maya Banks continues her suspenseful and steamy Slow Burn trilogy with this second book-a twisting tale featuring a strong yet vulnerable heroine in danger and the sexy alpha hero who must save her.

Abandoned as a baby to a young wealthy couple and raised in a world of privilege, Arial has no hint of her past or who she belonged to. Her only link lies in the one thing that sets her apart from everyone else—telekinetic powers. Protected by her adoptive parents and hidden from the public to keep her gift secret, Ari is raised in the lap of luxury, and isolation. That is, until someone begins threatening her life.

Beau Devereaux is no stranger to the strange. As the head of Deveraux Security, he’s more than familiar with the realities of physic powers. So when a family friend approaches him about protecting his daughter, he’s more than ready to jump on board. What Beau isn’t prepared for is the extent of his attraction to his beautiful and powerful client. What began as a simple assignment, just another job, quickly turns personal as Beau discovers he’ll do anything at all to protect Ari. Even if it costs him his life.

In His Keeping is the second book in the Slow Burn series. Before you even start this book, I would suggest that you strap in, take a deep breath and hold on for your lives; as In His Keeping is full on from the first chapter.
Ari grew up with loving parents and she thought she had a charmed life, with just one little hiccup, Ari has telekinetic powers. Ari has no idea why she has these powers, but on a day that she is attacked, they manage to save her life. But there is much that Ari does not know about herself and now that her parents have been kidnapped, she is on the run. She decides to go to the two people that her father said would always keep her safe; Beau and Caleb Devereaux.
Beau Deveraux is the brooding one of the Devereaux children, he never gets close to a client, and he is cold and efficient and gets the job done. That is until Ari comes to him for help and she stirs up all these feelings inside him. Beau vows to protect Ari and find her parents, even if it means going up against his own brother.
WOW! What a book! Maya Banks continues to amaze me! Her talent and skill at writing such amazingly detail and exciting books truly does overwhelm me. The writing is smooth, no plot holes, just my constant desire for more and more of this amazing series. I love the characters in this book, Ari and Beau are amazing together, but boy do I want to know more about Zack! With this series I am truly becoming more and more of a romantic suspense fan!
I give In His Keeping a solid 10 out of 10.
