4.5 Star Review
Keep Me Safe is Elaine Breson’s debut novel. For a first time author, I think she did an outstanding job at weaving a gripping, believable story about learning to overcome one’s fears and learning to trust again.
Sadie’s life was great, up until she married her college boyfriend. That’s when everything changed. She had to learn how to protect herself from the violent man that her husband had become. When his last outburst puts her in the hospital, she finally has a way out. She has been planning for sometime to leave.
With a fresh start, divorce papers signed, she sets out to begin her life, on her own terms. She has her great friend Stephannie who has supported her through everything. She has a job that she loves and a new home. She couldn’t ask for anything more.
Parker Stevens, hot, sexy, confident cop. Sworn to protect and uphold the law. When he makes a routine traffic stop late one evening, he never expects to run into the “pretty young lady” again. When she shows up at his brothers house the next night, he feels that he has to get to know her. He has never been one to settle down, he has just played the field. Will Sadie be the one to tame his wild ways?
Sadie is hesitant to let Parker into her life. With her past hidden from everyone but Stephannie, will she finally get the courage to let someone in? Will Parker be the one to protect her? To help her realize that she is not broken? Can he bring down her walls and show her what it is like to love again?
Overall, I am very impressed with Elaine’s writing. She does a great job of character development and scene description. Her writing flows really well and her story has depth. She writes about real life trials and the chance for a new, better life. I was drawn in from page 1. She made me mad, frustrated and sad and near the end she had me laughing my ass off. I will openly admit that I am a friend of the authors, but I did not give her any special treatment with my review. She just has what it takes to be a really good writer. I look forward to what she publishes in the future.
