When a 200-year-old witch attacks her, sixteen-year-old bookworm Lainey Styles is determined to find a logical explanation. Even with the impossible staring her in the face, Lainey refuses to believe it—until she finds a photograph linking the witch to her dead mother.

After consulting a psychic, Lainey discovers that she, like her mother, is a Keeper: a witch with the exclusive ability to unlock and wield the Grimoire, a dangerous but powerful spell book. But there’s a problem. The Grimoire has been stolen by a malevolent warlock who is desperate for a spell locked inside it—a spell that would allow him to siphon away the world’s magic.

With the help of her comic-book-loving best friend and an enigmatic but admittedly handsome street fighter, Lainey must leave her life of college prep and studying behind to prepare for the biggest test of all: stealing back the book.

Keeper was a fun and entertaining paranormal romance that took me back to the days when I first discovered this genre. This book transported me back to middle school Miranda who was obsessed with all YA paranormal romances. Reading this book felt like a fun getaway. 

One of the best things about this book was the characters. The author did a wonderful job at making each character feel so realistic. The characters genuinely felt like real teenagers. None of the characters felt forced or too adult to be a teenager. I felt like I was hanging out with my best friends! Each character was lovable, hilarious, and unique in their own way. I WANT TO HUG THEM AND LOVE THEM FOREVER. 

The female friendships in this book were AMAZING. I loved how this author didn't forget how important female friendships are in books. The female friendships warmed my heart and brought many smiles to my face. The romance in this book was predictable, however, I was totally into it. The romance had so many swoony and sweet moments! My inner middle school self was squealing with happiness. I SHIP IT. 

Even though a majority of this book was predictable and had many YA tropes, the author still introduced surprising plot points. The paranormal element of this story was interesting and presented some exciting plot development. The last chapters of the book were action-packed and full of twists and turns! I blew through those chapters! I am excited to see if the author will write a sequel because there are so many things that can be explored in this world!

If you are someone who use to be obsessed with YA paranormal romances and want to be taken back to that time, then I definitely would recommend checking this book out!
