Blackwood: An Erotic Thriller by Celia Aaron
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh. My. God.
After reading the Acquisition series, I honestly didn’t think anything could come close to the amazingness of that twisted tale. Boy was I wrong. Blackwood is right up there with it.
Now, this is one of those books where you become so engrossed that you can’t stop thinking about it, even if by chance you have managed to put it down for a moment. It feels so wrong to enjoy something so dark, so much, but I really did love it. If you are into dark erotica (so dark), then you need to read this book!
Celia keeps you on your toes, so you’re never quite sure what is happening. She has a way of somehow lulling you into a false sense of security, thinking you finally get it, and then Wham! You’re thrown completely off course. I don’t know if I’ve ever had so many heart-pounding moments while reading.
And the characters. Phenomenal.
And by characters, I of course mean, Garret, the brooding, bad guy that you love to hate. Right from the beginning I was drawn to him. I pictured him as Milo Venitimiglia throughout the whole book. I mean, how can you not love a character that is described that way?
I can't even begin to describe how much I loved this book. It deserves more than 5 stars. I really hope that Celia has more stories like this up her sleeves - I'm hooked!
I dig. It’s what I do. I’ll literally use a shovel to answer a question. Some answers, though, have been buried too deep for too long. But I’ll find those, too. And I know where to dig—the Blackwood Estate on the edge of the Mississippi Delta. Garrett Blackwood is the only thing standing between me and the truth. A broken man—one with desires that dance in the darkest part of my soul—he’s either my savior or my enemy. I’ll dig until I find all his secrets. Then I’ll run so he never finds mine. The only problem? He likes it when I run.
Author’s Note: This is a standalone mystery/suspense romance with violence and explicit/intense sex. If you need a trigger warning, then this isn't the book for you.
