Janiya Rice is on her high school reunion committee. Sitting
in the conference room waiting for the meeting to start, she
finds herself reminiscing about high school, her failed
marriage and Dan Bellisario. Dan, the object of her affection
for more years than she cares to admit, still makes her heart
pound and her palms sweat. Janiya is gun-shy about marriage
since her divorce and doesnít want to think of the night she
and Dan spent together years ago. When Dan returns to their
hometown, Janiya finds herself lusting after him once more.
Dan Bellisario has always loved Janiya, even when married to
his ex wife. She was his first love in high school and he
canít imagine ever not loving her. Now, if only he can
convince her that he isnít like her scumbag ex-husband. Going
for broke, Dan gives Janiya an ultimatum. Hopefully she will
make the choice that Dan is wishing for.
Keeper was a good, quick read full of delicious
sensuality and had a great plot to boot. Relating fully with
Janiyaís not wanting to be hurt by love again, I found Danís
patience towards her endearing. Every girl remembers their
first love and I think Carol McKenzie incorporated that idea
into her storyline very well. I just liked Keeper
very much and canít wait to tell others about this cute book.
