Lissa's Review: Dark Protector by Celia Aaron
KINDLE UNLIMITED PUBLISHER: Celia Aaron RELEASED: February 25, 2017 GENRE: ROMANCE, SUSPENSE LENGTH: 270 pages FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK
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.
FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
Dark Protector is a thrilling and exciting read. Charlie is a florist, and well Conrad just kills people for a living. For whatever reason Conrad has it bad for Charlie. And well the evilest people realize this and take her against her will. There are things I loved about this story and other things I felt were meh. The thing I like the most was the skill of Conrad. He was this Dark, menacing man. Who won’t let anyone stop him from saving the one person that he feels connected to. There was plenty of action throughout the story, which I loved. I didn’t feel the undying connection from Conrad and Charlie. Which, I desperately wanted to explore. I thought there would be more of a profound reasoning, to why Conrad was so taken by Charlie. But it was just because he saw her through her shop window. And I loved that Charlie wasn’t this weak woman. She was strong, and she was a Survivor. Overall, I have to give this a Four, I did enjoy it, and I felt the thrill of it. I just didn’t feel that deep connection between the two characters.
