A light romance within a deep paranormal world.
Series: Yes, The Keepers: LA 1
Characters: Rhiannon and Brodie
Setting: Modern day, Hollywood California
Sexual Themes: Yes
Recommendation: The romance was pretty instant, the characters were relatively single dimensional and the negativity portrayed about Hollywood and its inhabitants was pretty harsh and stereotypical. Overall, I enjoyed the read, moved past the quirks it had that annoyed me and just enjoyed the fluffy read, if you can do the same then I have no problem suggesting you give it a try.
The setting is modern LA with the addition of various super natural races all living in relative secrecy. Each of the races are touched upon briefly and the history of the Keepers is explained as well. With that background knowledge provided, the story begins right away with Rhiannon and Brodie meeting. Beginning the story it was very clear right away who would end up dating who and that their love story would be of the insta-love variety. I don't consider this an outright negative way of handling love, but if this bothers you as a reader, then this may be a book you'd want to skip.
Rhiannon gains confidence in herself as the book progresses and seems to loose confidence in her cousins. She becomes more protective, seems to loose faith that they can take care of themselves, (which is interesting since they are both also Keepers like she is) and yet at the same time feels safe enough to become romantically involved with Brodie while all of this is happening.
