Title: The Butcher
Series: Protector Series #3
Author: Celia Aaron
Genre: Mafia Romance (standalone)
I had her once. Or at least I thought I did. But that was a long time ago. Before prison. Before I became the Butcher. Seeing her now shouldn’t make me feel anything. It’s been too long. She forgot about me as soon as I was sent away. But all those truths can’t break the connection that links me to my Angel. No matter how hard I try, I’m still drawn to her, damned to want her even though she’s promised to another man. Being assigned to serve as her bodyguard is a torture so ingenious that I have to respect it. If I don’t deliver her to the altar, my life is forfeit to the Genoa family. But if I do, losing her again may kill me surer than a hitman's bullet.
Author's Note: This is the third novel in the Dark Protector world, David Raven's story, and a standalone.
Where to begin......You should know that even though The Butcher is the third book in the Protector Series this book can be read as a standalone, I promise you don't feel as if you are missing anything if you haven't read the first two books but I can almost guarantee that once you meet Con and Nate you'll want to go back and read all about them. ;)
David and Angel met as teenagers and this book takes us back to that time where things weren't so easy for them, and quite honestly things only got harder. Star Crossed Lovers? I guess that term can be used for them, and it's even brought up in the book itself. David and Angel have everything going for them....ummmm NOPE, EVERYTHING is going against them right from the very beginning.
I feel that if I continue with this review I will give to much away and quite honestly you really need to read this book yourself to feel not only the pull and amazing chemistry David and Angel have but also to understand the reasons behind their troubles. The Butcher is a Dark Romance which isn't for everyone but if you like organized crime romances I recommend you giving this one a go. Happy Reading!!!
