Release Blitz and Book Review for Blackwood by Celia Aaron

Amazon :


AP new - synopsis.jpg
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 mystery/suspense romance with violence and explicit sex. Trigger warning.

My Review:
     Blackwood by Celia Aaron, I fall in love with this author more with every book I read from her. Blackwood is a dark mysterious, suspenseful, erotic, lust-filled, loving and at times funny...I know how can I say funny in a dark read but Celia Aaron knows how to put together a perfectly written story that will have you reading from the edge of your seat and  not wanting to walk away from this story for one minute.

     Elise Vale is on a mission to study the surroundings of the Blackwood Estate she uses digging for Native American artifacts as an excuse to get herself on the land, but her intentions run much deeper. Elise is after answers and she doesn't care how far she will have to go to get them, even if that means putting her life in danger. She is strong, determined and beautiful but will her carelessness and the dark and mysterious owner of the estates be her downfall? Garrett Blackwood is a man of mystery, his secrets and desires only intensify the need to know more about him. I love how the author has the reader questioning if Garret is someone to fear while also falling for this character.

     Blackwood is everything I expect from Celia Aaron, she has a way with words that draws me into the story. The chemistry between Elise and Garret is freaking hot, the witty banter between them kept a smile of my face and the secrets they hold keeps that mystery that had me turning pages just to get to the answers. This is a 5 star must read!

“You can’t keep me here,” I said with far more bravado than I felt. “I refuse to be held prisoner by a psycho in need of a shower and shave.”

He laughed, this time the sound rich and sultry. It reverberated inside my chest. Something about it reminded me of the forest, the way the sunrise warmed it but couldn’t quite reach its dark heart.

“You don’t like my beard?” He sat next to me, much closer this time.

My pulse ratcheted up, and I took in a quick breath.

“Well?” He grinned and took my wrist.

I tried to pull it away, but his grip was like an iron shackle. He eased the back of my hand down his cheek. “Not so bad, is it?”

It wasn’t. Not exactly soft, it felt thick and masculine. Rich. “What are you doing?” I leaned back until I pressed up against the headboard.

He moved closer, his woodsy scent a mix of smoke and soap. Maybe he didn’t need a shower after all. I didn’t turn away, not even when his lips were only inches from mine.

“I just wanted to see.” His eyes flickered to my lips.

“You’re about to see what a vicious head butt looks like.” My rapid pulse infected my voice, making it quaver.

“Yeah?” He squeezed my wrist harder. “I don’t believe you.”

“Fuck you.” I stared into his eyes, searching the stormy irises for some way to solve the enigma of Garrett Blackwood.

He smirked again, just the slightest quirk of his lips, then leaned back and released my wrist. The air cooled between us, and goose bumps rose along my bare arms.
