When her father died, Lucy Mae Estmond inherited the family business. She has known all of her life that she would be in line to watch over the souls of the recently passed, keeping them safe from the Reapers.

The soul eating Reapers have been a plague upon the Earth, stealing souls and leaving the Keepers as the only thing that stands between Heaven and Hell. The factions despise each other and have warred for generations.

Then Lucy discovers an ancient legend predicting the arrival of the Chosen One, destined to bring forth an end to the Reapers. The surprises continue when she realizes she is that person. For Lucy, being the Chosen One doesn’t change much. Fighting Reapers is just another day in the life of a Keeper. 

When she meets Jack Walker, they both realize they have an insane, mutual attraction. Too bad that he’s been sent to prevent the prophecy from coming true. His only mission: to kill the Chosen One.

Keeper vs. Reaper (Graveyard Guardians, #1)It was Lucy’s destiny as a Keeper to be the last line of defense against Reapers out to steal the souls of the dead. It was also her destiny to be the prophesied Keeper to put an end to the soul-sucking Reapers. Little did she know, there would be one Reaper who could steal her heart and his mission was to end her life.

KEEPER VS. REAPER by Jennifer Malone Wright had huge potential for me! Good versus evil, forbidden love, Fate…yep, it’s all there! There are even moments of clever wit! Yet, I felt I was caught between pages, sometimes, like I missed a little something, probably my fault, but I just couldn’t feel this one like I wanted and was a little too choppy for me.

Ms. Wright does open with a “bang” though, Jack the Reaper having meaningless sex with a well-endowed female and so it continues for him, over and over. Meanwhile, Lucy has faced the death of her father and the new responsibilities she is shouldered with, her well-meaning, but interfering family and she is still pretty darn even-keeled about it.

When Lucy and Jack finally meet, the attraction wasn’t sizzling, and Jack’s reaction was kind of “ewwwwwww” for me.

I loved the idea of the book, saw great possibilities, but it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
