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.
My Review: 3 1/2 stars
David and Angel have a story that spans many years.
They first meet when they are young. David works for a mobster and he catches angel rubbing their connection is instant and very strong. But one day Angel disappears and David ends up going to prison. Five years later to prison and is set to do a protection job. But he didn’t realize he would be protecting Angel.
How Angel ends up where she is is a big part of the story, but David is determined to set her free.
Different things happen throughout the story, and there are some periods of time that have been skipped over to get to certain parts of the story.
This was an OK read for me, it didn’t keep my interest as much as I wish it would have. I think this story had a lot of potential but it just fell a little bit short for me
