Publisher's Summary

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.

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 :)

I loved this book, my first Tijan book.

I loved this book, my first Tijan book.

Emma has a great group of friends now but has had it hard growing up. Bouncing from foster home to foster home. Her brother AJ was killed by the Mafia when she was little.
She found her roommate being raped by the boyfriend and then killed the bastard. She had 3 choices, call the cops, get killed by boyfriends mafia connections or call Carter!!!

This book is not for the faint of heart.
I would recommend this book.

Yum! Carter reed

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

The audio edition is just as good as the printed version

What was one of the most memorable moments of Carter Reed?

The most memorable moment for me was when he admits that he loves her,but then again I'm a softie when it comes to romance,and when he tells her that he has always protected her in her life and explains how,great action with romance.

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

I haven't listened to any other performances from Lucy rivers,so I carnt compare this audio book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When carter explains to Emma how he got involved with the mafia and why he done it,all started with her brother.that he never really left her alone she had been watched since her brothers death,that part really moved me.

Any additional comments?

A great action packed story with twist and turns and also romance,a bit of everything.i loved the story and how it came altogether,and have read recently that Tijan is writing up a sequal.carnt wait for that one.
Highly recommend this audio book.
