Description

Emma decided to skip the gym and went home early. It was the last easy decision she made because she found her roommate being raped by her boyfriend. She had two choices: Call the cops and be killed by his family's mafia connections or kill him first and hope to survive.

There was no choice to her. She killed the bastard first and went to the one person who could protect her: Carter Reed. He's a weapon for the rivaling mafia family, but he's also Emma's secret. Not only was he best friends with her brother, but she's the reason he became that weapon in the first place.

Good

Good narrator. The story is also good except at the end when I feel it goes in different directions at the same time.

HE SAID "I WOULD DECLARE WAR FOR YOU"

Carter Reed told Emma that he would declare war for her, how do you resist a man like that. I know I couldn’t. I absolutely adored this book. I’m not usually the romance thriller type of reader but I’m so glad that I decided to step out of my genre and give this book a try. Emma makes a quick decision in the blink of an eye to save her roommate that was being raped by her boyfriend, kill him. Afterwards, there is only one person she knows who can now protect her and her roommate for the mob that will shortly come looking for her and his name is Carter Reed. Carter Reed has earned a reputation as the cold killer and it is truly well earned. He is lethal and ruthless. He will kill to keep safe the things he values and loves and Carter Reed has loved Emma her entire life.

I was captivated by this book from the first sentence. Seriously, after Emma kills the boyfriend I was literally glued to this audio. Carter is cold, ruthless and vicious but with Emma everything is different. Emma sees a side of him that no one has ever witnessed before and Emma realizes that he is both the cold killer and her passionate lover. Emma is strong and loyal. It is some moments in the book that Emma makes stupid decisions and you have to think, what in the hell are you thinking. But for the most part, it’s an unbelievable ride. SO GOOD.

Is this book worth a credit, umm you better believe it. Buy this book, sit back and enjoy a fun, sexy, unbelievable ride.

Mr ALPHA - Those eyes, all those dark Promises

Any additional comments?

Everything changes for Emma the day that she alters her normal routine and walks in on her best friend and roommate being raped by her boyfriend. Something inside her snaps when she realizes she has two choices - turn him in and risk punishment by his father’s mafia connections or kill him and run... The pain and suffering she watches her roommate endure, even for moments, makes that decision for her. She retrieves a gun and kills him herself. Sealing her fate and changing her life. Forever...

On the run with nowhere to go she has only one place to turn. Her brother’s oldest friend and now a hit man for a rival mafia group: Carter Reed... Carter Reed is absolutely swoon worthy, he’s super intense and a totally hot alpha male...

I cannot imagine the horror that Emma has had to survive to get to where she is at the beginning of this book, but to handle what was thrown at her the moment she walked into her apartment…I don’t want to imagine those feelings.

I really liked Carter’s character. He’s strong, but has this sweet and loving side that he only shows Emma - I loved Carter and Emma’s relationship. He’s totally alpha and does everything in his power to protect her.

Now if you are into a lot of description in the sex scenes you won’t get that here. You know when they are having sex, but not so much about what is actually going on. I actually liked the scenes as they were, it didn't distract from the actual story-line that was going on and you could see where they where and when their relationship was growing.

Lucy Rivers does a fantastic job narrating. Very enjoyable :)

Where IS The Rest?

Where does Carter Reed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would put this in my favorite category but not on my favorite listens.

Would you be willing to try another book from Tijan? Why or why not?

yes I would, I think she has potential for a good story line build up.

Have you listened to any of Lucy Rivers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No this was the first, I will try her again though.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My extreme reaction was who chopped up this book? There seems to be so much more to this story that was deleted out of the book. In the first chapter it throws you right in but it feels incomplete in a way. There is no character build up, barely any description in her story telling. I just feel like this book could have been twice the length and could have been great rather than just OK.

Any additional comments?

It just fell a little short with me. I have a feeling the editor and publisher shredded it. Because the book has a feel like eventually we will know more but it never got there.

I totally love this!

Maybe I am totally wrong in saying this...but Mafia Romance is sooooo extremely hot! I totally loved that Carter was a criminal, a bad to the bone criminal, and I loved the drama, action, and criminal activities done thoughout the story...

I mean why listen to a story about bad guys when they don't do anything bad! So this was awesome... great smexy time and romance between Emma and Carter. Loved the ending...and I really hope there will be a book 2, because I so wanna dive into Teresa and Noah's story! Great Great...

Credit well spent... Great narration...love those shift in voices!

It wasn't the narrator, this story was just bad

I am truly baffled at the amount of high stars for this one. I had to scratch my head and wonder if maybe I read the wrong book. The narrator was just fine, but she couldn't save this book.

This discombobulated book starts with Emma coming home to find her roommate being raped and so she shot the rapist. She didn't call the cops, she called Carter Reed because the rapist was a mobster and so was her brother's best friend Carter Reed.

We spend the next 9 hours on audio hearing about Emma's achy thighs and quivering belly at the sound of Carter's voice. She tells us very often how much she wants Carter to touch her RIGHT NOW. In case you didn't figure out from the achy thighs, if he doesn't touch her right now, she will explode.

Achy thigh Emma spends a lot of time blaming herself for not taking care of her roommate. They aren't best friends, they aren't related, but somehow Emma is supposed to take care of a grown woman--Mallory (at least a girl the same age as Emma). I never understood that but Emma is responsible for those around her though she could barely take care of herself. She turns to the infamous mobster Carter for help, but he will only offer it if she moves in with him. Why? Because he has to have her with him, that's why. His need to protect her is so consuming, it's overwhelming. I think I smelled the mhis from BDB.
Soon after Carter proceeds to slowly drop hints about what he has done FOR achy thighs Emma, because it was all for her. Nothing else matters, no one else matters, just Emma. MINE.

OMG, I needed a drink to make it through this audiobook but had no alcohol in sight. It was just jumping from thing to thing and I thought perhaps I should have drank some glasses of wine too, perhaps this story would make sense then. I would be okay with the author's rambling narrative. The transitions were so choppy, it felt like I was listening to a drunk friend talking. The lack of development was just egregious. There was a shallow storyline here, but I was distracted by achy thighs. I couldn't connect with any character in the book. There was a lot of things that were not explained well.

anyway, I don't know if I will read anything else by this author because I don't think I could handle another 10 hours like this one.

Good and bad.....the story line was good bot something was missing

The story started off good, but the female character got on my last nerve. I just could not relate to her and she was a whinny chick for most of the story. There were numerous parts of the story where I kept thinking get on with it already. there were quite a few parts that just did not make sense, with the way the plot was rolled out. In the end I had to force myself to finish.

SHE HAD ME GRIPPED BY THE END OF CHAPTER 1

I luckily came across this book while searching for a good listen.. but instead of good I hit the Jackpot and got great. I had heard of Tijan before but I thought her books were more NA than adult - well this listen was definitely adult and now I'm irrevocably hooked.. and excited that there's a second book to Carter Reed which I'll be downloading and listening to straight after this review followed by Cole when it's released.

I love love love Mafia romances.. the males are powerful fit sexy Alpha bad boys who would die to protect their woman, what you see is what you get with them and there's an unshakable loyalty to them too. Well Carter Reed was all that and much much more when a terrified Emma went to him for help.. but she got far more than she ever bargained for when she was caught up in a web of her own making. A twisted web that would reveal long held secrets, desire, emotional truths, pulse pounding danger, anguish, twists, murder, suspense, sex, passion.. and a primal connection to the love of her life who tried desperately to keep her alive. And Emma was no pushover either.

I see this book got mixed reviews so all I can do is say that for me this listen gripped me, its characters entertained me and the suspenseful storyline kept me in its grasp as each Chapter revealed pulse-pounding action, sighworthy sentiments and unexpected events. It wasn't filled with sex, the unbreakable bond between Emma and Carter was formed first but, by Part 2, the passion and lust couldn't be contained any more. But more than this you could feel that there was a deep deep love between these two characters as their actions were to protect the other.. or die trying. Good secondary characters too. Told from Emma's POV but there were a few insights into Carter's thoughts and situations which was told in third person. And I thought Lucy Rivers did a great job at narration.

Worth a credit? Yes and who doesn't love a possessive bad boy who says "I would declare war for you".. and then proves it.

Carter 1

This book was good. I wasn’t disappointed at all. I believe every book, I’ve read so far by Tijan wasn’t a disappointment I like the authors who can pull me in, in every book.

Emma, was so annoying at times lol, Gah, she didn’t listen at all to what Carter was trying to tell her. And like her friend Amanda said Carter will move heaven and earth for her and that he would. The men character is so much better than the men in the real world lmao. It’s a shame, well it depends on the book, and what it’s about at the time. But IDK why I think her (EMMA) friend Amanda going to end up with Jen (Carter Associate Friend Guy, Who Work With Him). Even though he’s creepy and look scary. It’s just that feeling. Can’t wait to read part 2 I mean listen to part 2 on audible. Hopefully, Emma and Carter don’t bang throughout the book, cause dang, I wanted them to get it on in the beginning but after awhile I’m like – Okaaaaaaaaaay Emma dang. Lol ugh! She drools every 1.5 seconds that man around lol.

P. S.

Smh, that Ben guy that’s all I’m going to say.

they can get LOUD! < Amanda saying about Teresa and Carter friend “Noah” Amanda like boop never mind I will get a room at your house, Emma!

” You need rest lots of it, that means no nothing! Carter no sex, no fighting, no nothing, if you can work from home I recommend it! And I mean it about the sex! Don’t think I didn’t see that cute honey standing looking all concern before! NO SEX!

And then he’s Like DONT HAVE SEX with HIM! Lmao even if you’re doing all the work!

The mob, murder, and true love

Would you consider the audio edition of Carter Reed to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version, but I usually enjoy the audio version over print. I can't see why this would be any different.

Which character – as performed by Lucy Rivers – was your favorite?

I liked her as all three of the female characters. Emma, Theresa, and Amanda. Each one of them sounds different during the performance. I know that sometimes with multiple females in a performance they can start to sound the same. It did not happen with this performance.

Any additional comments?

***** Spoiler*****
I did enjoy this book. I just wish some parts had been gone into more. Lots of blank areas in the book. I was thinking it was from the POV the book was written in. Carter states some of why he did what he did for Emma but it was never really gone into detail. If you love this women as much as you say you do for that many years I would have thought there would have been more to say about that.
