    DARK PROTECTOR by Celia Aaron

    Title: Dark Protector
    Author: Celia Aaron
    Genre: Romance
    Release Date: February 27, 2017
    Available on Kindle Unlimited

    From the moment I saw her through the window of her flower shop, something other than darkness took root inside me. Charlie shone like a beacon in a world that had long since lost any light. But she was never meant for me, a man that killed without remorse and collected bounties drenched in blood.

    I thought staying away would keep her safe, would shield her from me. I was wrong. Danger followed in my wake like death at a slaughter house. I protected her from the threats that circled like black buzzards, kept her safe with kill after kill.


    But everything comes with a price, especially second chances for a man like me. 

    Killing for her was easy. It was living for her that turned out to be the hard part.

    Author's Note: This is a full-length romance novel. Explicit violence and hot sex included. HEA, no cheating.



    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    Conrad was lethal. No seriously. He was a hired killer. And every time he explained one of his kills or committed one, I fell even deeper for him. If loving him is wrong, I don't wanna be right. He was so sexy no matter what he did, whether it was taking a bullet, shooting someone in the face, or vowing to die, kill and live for Charlie.



    Speaking of Charlie, she was pretty badazz herself. Without spelling out the plot, although she didn't have the same skill set as Con, there were times that she definitely held her own. And times when she surprised the heck out of everyone! How many women do you know that will make a shiv out of a toilet brush??? Exactly!!

    Most of this story read like a 5-star read for me and just when I was satisfied to reward it with such, the story was over. While it was wrapped up with a neat little bow, it was too pat for me. It felt like too many plot holes were left unfilled. I'm really hoping that these details will be flushed out or clarified in a future book. *fingers crossed*

    Release Date: February 27, 2017

    Steam: 4 out of 5

    “Look.” He pulled his pistol from its holster, laid it on the dresser, and began unbuttoning his shirt. “I realize this isn’t optimal for either of us. You don’t want to be here.”

    I tried not to stare at the gun, but I was already trying to figure out if I could get to it before he could.

    “You can’t.” He glanced at the gun then back to me. “I’ll always win.”

    “Always?” I edged toward the door to what looked like a bathroom.

    He sighed, weariness heavy on his exhale. “Yes. It’s what I do.”

    “You kill? Is that what you mean?”

    His face hardened, a muscle ticking in his jaw. At that moment, I realized how truly terrifying he could be. Built like a solid wall of muscle, at least six foot five, with a handsome face and eyes that went cold in a heartbeat. I swallowed hard and bumped into the doorframe at my back.

    “I’m going to need to patch this.” He jerked his chin toward his shoulder, but kept his eyes on me. “But first, I’m going to take care of your nose and get you cleaned up.”

    “First, you need to tell me why I’m even here.” I couldn’t keep the shrill notes from my voice. “Why did Berty take me? Why is this happening?”

    He reached behind his head and pulled his shirt off in a singularly masculine move. His abs flexed, and his bare chest looked carved and hardened. Black ink trailed around his arms and met in the center of his chest. “Death before dishonor” was written between his pecs with a flourishing script. His fingers had individual letters on each one. Scars dotted his body—some long gashes with dots on either side from stitches, others that were rounded or jagged. He was a battlefield, his story told with blood and scar tissue.
