Title: Dark Protector
Author: Celia Aaron
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2017
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.

Dark Protector was the first book I’ve ready by Celia Aaron. It’s one that’s action packed, full of suspense, and of course, there can’t be a good story without some romance. Celia did a wonderful job capturing two completely, but yet similar, characters in this book. When I first starting reading, I’ll admit, I really thought the book would go in a total different way than I expected. Conrad is the man people should fear and run from, but yet there’s something about Charlie that he’s drawn to. Charlie at first, seemed really weak and fragile, but the more I read, the more Charlie surprised me. She was a lot stronger and went through a lot more than she lets on. But I will say, Conrad has his fair share of troubles. It was interesting to see these two broken people come together and it made an interesting story-line.
The only downfall I would say about this one is I thought it was a dark romance. To me it was dark but only in certain parts. It was kind of like dark-ish mixed with contemporary. Did this make the story bad? Not really. But I love dark romances and I was kind of surprised at how “sweet” some parts that were in this one and it happened on several occasions. I would definitely recommend this book because like I said, it was a good read and it did keep me interested. I’ll also be checking out Celia’s other books because I found her writing style intriguing and addictive
Celia Aaron is a recovering attorney who loves romance and erotic fiction. Dark to light, angsty to funny, real to fantasy—if it’s hot and strikes her fancy, she writes it. Thanks for reading.
