I loved loved loved Carter Reed and had this book preordered eagerly awaiting its release.. but unfortunately it didn't quite live up to my expectations. It could've been because of the 'too young' narration which didn't fit the characters, it could've been because I was expecting more than just TWO chapters from Cole's POV.. or it could've been because of the storyline.
For me, the first third of the book dragged on a bit too much before Addison eventually spoke to Cole, she kept secrets from her best friend who had supported and stood by Addison through, and long after, her husband's death.. and any sex scenes were tepid, weak and extremely mild. However, on the plus side there was mystery, secrets, a twist or three and Cole.. well he was everything I hoped he'd be - protective, mysterious, loyal, sexy, dangerous.. and smokin hot.
Worth a credit? Sorry, but it's a 50/50 this time round.

Hooked!!! From the first page. As a huge fan of Tijan's writing I wasn't surprised, especially due to the fact that Carter Reed is up there in my Top 10 favourite book boyfriends ever. Cole Mauricio (who we met in Carter Reed) is now my ultimate mob boss. I'm so fickle! First up we meet Addison Bowman, widowed a year earlier and her dreams/nightmares are still plaguing her. Leaving the home she shared with her husband she moves into the illusive, exclusive, Mauricio building where she eventually meets and befriends Cole. Unaware that Cole is the owner of her building and one of the most powerful people in the city, a relationship forms. Addison is aware that there is a lot more to Cole than he's willing to share, but he actually makes her 'feel alive' something she's not felt in a year. It turns out that there is a lot more happening in both their lives and nothing is quite as it seems. With so many twists and turns, intense chemistry between all the characters and a wonderfully written story, I cannot praise the book enough. Well worth the wait.
I loved the narration, just perfect.
