Review for “The Keeper” – 4.5 stars of 5
I’m so thrilled that after two months, the novella is still stirring some interest. The review is lovely and perfect for those who want an impression of the book without any spoilers. Tj was incredibly tactful and insightful in reviewing The Keeper, and I’m glad the story is being viewed as more than a religious soapbox piece. Though religion is an inherent part of the characters, it isn’t the driving force of the story, which is a character-driven romance at its core. ^_^
The relationship between the two men is a slooooow burning ember that flickers to life suddenly when you least expect it, even as they both fight it. There is one very erotic finger sucking, come in your pants scene (the character people, not me!) that was as hot as a frot! The guys are both interesting and well drawn and the path of their relationship seemed realistic, no insta-love, not even insta-lust. The exploration and reinterpretation of religious themes, and the examination of biblical inhabitants was fascinating to me, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. If these ideas sound appealing, then I highly recommend The Keeper.
Thanks for the review, Tj! And thanks to Wave for hosting the review!
