Welcome to my stop on the Keeper blog tour! I am so excited to share my review with you because this book really was so original and fun. I hope you all check it out and give it a try.
For them, free will is a luxury . . .
Greg Papilio both wants and dreads his impending metamorphosis. He’s tired of being a runt—always picked last on the basketball court—and tired of being ugly, when he could be what girls call “drop dead gorgeous.” But as much as he looks forward to the transformation, he also fears the caste it will inevitably assign to him. He doesn’t want a common caste. He wants a powerful one, a cool one.
Samantha Gibson is average. She’s short and a little full around the hips—a terribly cute look for a future chef. She’s two years away from culinary school, from her uncaring parents, and from carving a perfectly Human future. She wants independence, a career and a quiet life of her own.
Except fate couldn’t care less about what Greg and Samantha want and gives them exactly the opposite. Greg’s metamorphosis assigns him a caste that enslaves him to Samantha, while her chance to attend Le Cordon Bleu is taken away. But things are never as interesting as when Ashby—an intriguing blonde with a hidden identity—enters her life with a splash.
Greg’s fate is to protect Samantha at a time when someone wants her dead. He's her Keeper and will stop at nothing to ensure her safety, even if her secret past proves deadly, even if he's keeping her safe for someone else.

If I had to review this book in just a couple of words, these are the words I would use to describe it, captivating, well developed and completely unique.
I was immediately drawn right into the story and into Greg, Sam and Ashby's story. I was fascinated with the morphism and what it all meant.
The author managed to give us just enough detail to explain what was happening without so much info that we felt overloaded or overwhelmed.
I loved Sam, Greg, and Ashby from the get go and felt invested in their outcome and happiness. I wanted the very best for all of them but just knew that probably wouldn't be possibly with the way the storyline was headed.
I know this was originally released as a serial novel but I am so very glad that I had all four volumes before starting it as I can see how each one ended in a cliffhanger and I just know I would have been on the edge of my seat waiting for the next installment to be released, this really was that good.
My only real complaint was the world building, I just felt like there could have been just a little bit more explanation about where it all started and how it all came about but other than that I really was surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. The ending took me by surprise and I am still not sure what to make of it all, I definitely wasn't ready for it to be over.
