There are books and then there are Tijan's books!! If  you are looking for a dark, dangerous and damn good romance, you've just found it!  Oh and did I mention, MAFIA? Ha! I knew that would grab your attention ;)

After Emma comes home to find her roommates boyfriend raping her, she makes the decision to kill him. Now Emma and her roommate are on the run from the local mafia king, who also happens to be the father of the man she killed.
Not knowing where to go, she turns to the only man that will be able to protect her. Carter Reed, the rival mafia boss himself.

But did she make a mistake? He's now known as the Cold Killer. Gone is the boy she and her brother AJ grew up with.  The man that stands before her is cold, calculated and hard to read. Can she trust this new Carter? The only thought that keeps running through her mind are her brothers final words to her..."Go to Carter."
"You don't trust anyone, no one except Carter. Go to Carter. He'll take care of everything. He'll take care of you Em's. I promise."

Little does she know, Carter has been waiting for this moment. After AJ was killed, he decided to exact revenge on all of the people involved in his death. He also vowed to watch over Emma without her knowing it so she could lead a normal life.
Now time and circumstances have reunited this couple.

"You did all of that for me?"
"I would declare war for you." ~Carter

This book is one of the absolute best thriller/romance books I've read!
Carter......Oh Lordy! Carter Reed is one lethal character. I was so happy his POV was included throughout the book. I love when we get to see what goes through these guys minds. Carter came  across as sexy, confident and dangerous. Everything he should've been. He's perfect! And the way he is so fiercely protective of Emma is what really reeled me in.

Emma.... I think I loved Emma as much as I did Carter. It may be called Carter Reed, but I felt as though this was Emma's story. Even though she knew she needed Carter's help, she still came across strong and self reliant.
The sexual tension between these two was intense and their sex scenes were HOT!!
I hate to give away anymore than I already have. Just trust me when I say you will love this book! The twists and turns in the plot will keep you second guessing yourself and leery of some of the characters. I swear I was in Emma mode throughout the book...I wasn't sure who to trust either! A word to the wise..... Clear your schedule before you start.  This is without a doubt, a book you will not be able to put down!! 

Carter Reed by Tijan gets 5++++++ Crazie Stars!!! ~Cami
