Book Review: His Witch to Keep (Keepers of the Veil #2) by Zoe Forward

His Witch to Keep (Keepers of the Veil #2)

by Entangled: Covet
A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint...

Wanting her was one thing. Keeping her was another...

Serenity Danssaert was already in way over her head. Not even her MI6 training or her powers as one of the seven Pleiades witches is going to save her sister. Then Alexi Jovec shows up. A secret operative working for unknown forces, he's impossibly sexy and dangerous...and the guy who bailed on Serenity after a red-hot, racy night.

So bonding to him as her destined—the One—is so very wrong.

While Alexi’s need to own Serenity—body, soul, and beyond—is nearly unbearable, it's also forbidden. He's the last man who could ever be her destined. Besides, Hades's right-hand man cannot bond with a chosen Pleiades witch. He may be the one man who can protect her, but she can never be his to keep.

Zoe Forward is a newer writer in my personal pnr playbook. I like a lot about her style, the worlds she creates and then action that takes characters on off-the-wall adventures. However, the pacing at times seems disjointed, portions are glossed over and the dialog tends to miss a step. This may be just a case of poor editing. Whatever the issue is, overall this story is entertaining enough to keep you interested until the very end. 

I wasn't aware of book one in this saga and maybe that would have helped a bit. For a second story you do get just enough previous info to stay in the moment. However, it does seem like a lot of the overall foundation is given to readers in the first go. But again, you can certainly manage from this point.

Alexi and Serenity have a bunch of the hot and heavy romance vibes going on. Though at times Alexi is a tad too high-handed for me. He's an alpha alright, but at times he's walking the line close to being more of a dick. I would have been happy with less of him telling Serenity what to do all the time and perhaps more support in rescuing her sister. BUT that opens a whole big bag of twist and turn spoilers I will not share!

I was surprised with the ending but happy the author really throws the reader for a loop. If you're looking for a hot read that's got a ton of potential then check this one out!

About the Author:
Zoe Forward is a hopeless romantic who can’t decide between paranormal and contemporary romance. So, she writes both. In addition to being a mom to one rambunctious kindergartener and wife to a conservation ecologist who plans to save all the big cats on the planet, she’s a small animal veterinarian caring for all the small furries, although there is the occasional hermit crab.

When she’s not typing at her laptop she’s tying on a karate belt for her son or cleaning up the newest pet mess from the menagerie that occupies her house. She’s madly in love with her globe trotting husband of ten years and happiest when he returns to their home base in North Carolina.


  1. You must read the first book! It was fabulous and then I definitely think you would have enjoyed this one more! It' was really good... but I had read the first book...

  2. It has witches, and mythology, so a big yes for me! Adding this series to my wishlist. Thanks Katie!
