I first read about this book on the Totally Booked blog. I am so grateful that I subscribe to that blog; this was one of the best books that I have read this year.

Emma needs help and she goes to the only person that she knows can help her, Carter Reed - a man who is connected to the mob. He was her brother's best friend before he was killed.

This is the first book that I have read by Tijan and I want to read more. I want so much more of Carter, Emma, Noah, Teresa and Amanda. Carter Reed was such a great book that dealt with so many complicated issues and I fell in love with the characters, plot and the author's work.

Ok, I picked this book up because I was in the mood for a story with the Mob in it. I wanted something
suspenseful and badass with a little romance. And come on the cover is AWESOME!!

BUT like my momma always said...."Never judge a book by its cover"

The beginning was actually really really good. I thought Emma would be a kick ass chick so I was hooked after
 the first chapter and went ahead and purchased the book and then it just went DOWNHILL after that for me.

Here's my issues....

1. This chick gasps and sighs way too much! I mean come on! She's "hot" for him the moment she sees him...
her nipples harden, she starts throbbing and blah blah blah. I must ask...why is she instantly turned on?? What
type of relationship did they have in their past that would make him her "ideal"???? I just don't think the back
story was built up enough for me.

2. I'm so over all these romance books where these girls almost have orgasm's just looking at the guy and
everyone's eyes are hot/passionate/steamy again...blah blah blah. I'm just over this style.

3. This chick is a sucky ass friend! She cares for Mallory, yet leaves Mallory and doesn't even put up a fight or try
to help Mallory AT ALL! She so quickly ditches her friends for new co-workers then when they don't talk to her
goes back to find out why her old friends aren't talking to her. Uh DUH!

4. After reading 55% of the book I still had no idea who Emma or Carter were...there were no deeps insights into
them no conversations between the two where we got to know them. All I new was Carter was in the mob for
Emma and they magically loved each other in a freakin day.

5. The story just didn't flow for me like I would have wanted it to. I didn't connect with Emma at all and found her
 to be whiney, clingy and very needy. I personally like my chicks with some attitude and Emma just didn't have
enough for me.

Most of my issues with the book are for my own personal reasons. Lots of readers love these types of romance
books but I just feel like this "style" has been a little overdone. A lot of independent romance books are starting
 to look and read the same to me. Maybe I need to find another genre for a little while and then try again.

Who knows....

I stopped reading at 55%. I just couldn't do it anymore, especially with Red Hill by Jamie McGuire coming out
tomorrow!!

    Pleasantly surprised

    I was pleasantly surprised, this book was so much better than I thought it was going to be. I wasn't sure about emma & how she delt with things in the begining, but I really liked how strong she turned out to be. And carter is absolutely devishly heavenly!! A very good story at a great value!!!

    Carter Reed is Stunning, Mind-Blowing just flat-out marvelous! I

    Carter Reed is Stunning, Mind-Blowing just flat-out marvelous! I received this book as an ARC and I kind of kept putting it off. I know probably something I shouldn’t admit. But once I actually started it, I couldn’t put it down. It is a pretty long book or it felt that way. But it was completely entertaining. I don’t feel that there was a dull moment in there. This book is about a girl named Emma, and she walks in on her roommate getting raped, seeing Mallory as family she did what she had to do. Emma killed him knowing he was the son of a Mobster. (Yeah I know, I thought it too. Really a mobster) Then they went on the run. Emma knew she needed help and knew that there was only one person that could help her. Carter. He was there when her brother was killed, he made a name for himself by getting revenge on the people who killed AJ. She goes to him unsure of whether or not he will help. Little does she realize that he has been helping her, her entire life? Does love really happen or is the heat of the moment. Can they survive his mob connections? Can he get out? Can Carter and Emma have a happily ever after? All that said, yes I know it’s not much. But I HATE giving it all away. This is a book I will definitely reread!! Simply put I LOVED it!!

    I have been reading a ton of new authors lately and here is another author that I love.

    Who doesn't love a bad boy, alpha, who has connections, owns a ton of property, will keep you safe no matter the cost or how it' done kind of guy. Oh and he's gorgeous to boot.

    I enjoyed the way that the story flowed, I loved meeting the characters, I feel like I got to know them and can't wait for their books.

    This book has some sad moments in it, it has some sex in it, not a ton of sex and it's not too graphic. I really liked it.

    Who doesn't love a hot, protective mob boss?? Carter Reed drew me in with the action. I loved it... mostly. I felt like the story became rushed at the end. The beginning started out great... story was well developed in the first half. The second half left me a little let down. The ending was a little unbelievable... all of a sudden it's over and everyone is saved... just wish it was wrapped up a little better. I did enjoy the story though.
