Audiobook Review: Dark Protector (Dark Protector, #1) by Celia Aaron. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Dark Protector by Celia Aaron

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

The heroine: Charlie – she own’s a flower shop and often sees a nice car with tinted windows parked outside her shop every few nights, though she knows it should scare her, she feels safe when she sees the car. Until one night when there is a shooting outside involving the man in the car.

The Hero: Conrad – He is a killer for the mob and is very good at his job. He recently got a job from the number two man in charge to kill the number one man. He did and there has been some warring within the ranks. It comes to a head when some guys try to punch his ticket while he is in his car outside Charlie’s shop.

The Story: After Charlie is kidnapped because of Conrad, he is determined to save her. His obsession with her is complete and he feels protective of her. He would park outside of her shop because staring at her working would calm his mind and bring him some sort of peace.

This book was steamy and had a strong heroine who is also a bit broken by her past and a killer Hero who is obsessed with her. He starts out a stalker and ends up a protector who is willing to kill for her. The book is told in dual points of view by two narrators, Erin Mallon and Lance Greenfield. Lance does the entire chapters that are told in Conrad’s POV and Erin does the chapters done in Charlie’s POV. I like it better when each narrator does their own part no matter whose point of view the chapter is in, but despite that these two did a good job.
