Carter Reed 
By Tijan
Our Rating: A Whole Bottle of Wine

Synopsis:
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 the 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.

Fall's Review: 
So I am a HUGE Tijan fan......like HUGE!! I was so excited when we got on this tour that I think I had palpitations. To be honest I would have read this book in a heartbeat even if the synopsis didn't sound amazing. HAVE YOU SEEN THE COVER OF THIS BOOK!! I mean Holy Shit, HOT DAMN! It is even better that the actual book is just as amazing as the cover.

Emma grew up with her brother AJ and his best friend Carter Reed. When Emma watches her brother be murdered, Carter seems to disappear right along with him. But people talk so she has heard of Carter Reed and the cold blooded killer that he has become.

“You don’t trust anyone, no one except Carter. Go to Carter. He’ll take care of everything. He’ll take care of you, Ems. I promise.” – AJ

Emma comes home early from the gym to find her roommate being raped. She makes a decision she feels is the only one to make and kills the MotherF@cker! What she doesn't realize is that she has just opened Pandora's box. What do you do when you killed a killer.....?

"I was going to die. It was a matter of time." – Emma

“Four days ago, I thought my life was ending. Everything had taken a 180 degree turn.” – Emma

This book has so much happening that you feel like you are part of the story. The emotions you feel are unlike any book I have read. It truly is a roller coaster and at one point I think I was screaming "stop I want to get off!"  I felt so completely intoxicated with the sexual chemistry between Emma and Carter. Sizzling doesn’t even begin to describe it! Erotic, Sexy, made my skin tingle.........every look, every touch and every word between these two passionate characters made me want more! I feel the synopsis actually does this book justice, and believe me that is rare. If a reviewer says much more, we are spoiling it for you.

“This,” he growled in a whisper against my lips. “This is what I wanted that night. I couldn’t contain myself and I had to taste you, but tonight is the night I really have you. You’re mine, Emma. You always have been.”– Carter

I have a new book boyfriend in Carter Reed!!! To watch the relationship between Emma and Carter rise and fall, twist and turn is exhilarating! Carter is the classic Tijan sex on legs, bad boy Hero but we also see his emotions come out toward those he loves and fights for. I loved Emma because I felt like she was handed shit in life but rather then complain and whine about it she pulled it together and moved on.....survived. 

"God, how could I want this man? He was cold, detached. He killed others."- Emma
“I would declare war for you.” – Carter

I am going to try and move on from the world of Carter Reed however I think I have been ruined for all others by Tijan. I will say that this is by far my favorite Tijan book, and I have read them all! I HIGHLY recommend that you read this amazing book. Trust me you will NOT be disappointed! Carter Reed by Tijan more then deserves a Full Bottle of White Zin from this faithful and loyal reader! Until next time... Tijan keep on rockin' on!

About The Author: 
Tijan started writing later in life, after she had already graduated college with a different direction in mind and a different degree under her belt. Hitting the brakes on that path, she taught herself how to write a good book and began posting at sites such as Fictionpress, along with Wattpad. After receiving such encouraging messages from readers, she self-published Fallen Crest High and has continued throughout the year. She continues to keep writing NA books!








EXCERPT:

Images of the two of us flashed in my mind and I grew wet again. He was going to be the death of me. A part of me knew that once I felt him inside of me, it wouldn't be enough. I would want more. I would never be satisfied, and when he made me come, that'd only been the teaser. My body was primed and ready again. My hand slid down his muscular back. It felt all the ridges, all the dips and curves. A dark pleasure spread through me when I felt his muscles contract as he turned his head to see me.
This was mine.
He was mine.
He groaned and had me against the wall in a second. His hands grabbed my hips and positioned me at an angle before he slammed his into mine. I felt the bulge in front of his pants. That was for me. All for me. He bent over me and lowered his lips just above mine as he thrust against me.
I couldn't breathe. My hands held onto his arms. The muscles there also moved underneath my touch, as if wanting more.
"This," he growled in a whisper against my lips. "This is what I wanted that night. I couldn't contain myself and I had to taste you, but tonight is the night I really have you. You're mine, Emma. You always have been."
I nodded, so weak against his touch.
"Mine."
He was mine as well, but I didn't say it. Not yet, though everything in my body was aching for me to do so.
He took my hand again and led the way out into the hallway. People stopped and watched us as we left. I knew it was because of him. Carter was lethal. His body was carved and molded to perfection. His eyes were cold while his face resembled an angel's. Everyone knew who he was, where he had come from. Even the media went into a frenzy when he was seen in public. However, he moved like a ghost, how he trained his men to be, so those moments were rare, and this moment wasn't any different. His staff had seen him before, but they all went quiet in the presence of a deadly panther.
A wave of possession rocked through me. My legs shook as I remembered my climax. This creature who held my hand was mine, as I was his. I belonged to him and I gasped in silence as I felt his claim sink into my blood. It went deep to the bones. Everything in me belonged to him, and as I followed him through his club, I knew that I was becoming addicted to him. My hand yearned to touch his back again, to slide across his muscles and so much more.
I bit down on my lip. This ache wasn't going to go away. The ache between my legs and the ache that resonated deep inside of me grew every time I was with him, every time he looked and touched me.
A soft sigh left me and he glanced back.
I was scorched by his gaze. His wolf eyes saw into me. I was stripped bare to him, no matter what I wore or how many walls were around my heart. He saw through everything. His hand tightened around mine, and he lifted it. His lips grazed against the top of it. My eyes closed, the ache doubled between my legs at that soft caress.
"Sir." A man stepped out of the shadows. Another guard.
Carter stopped as he listened to what the man had to say. He spoke quietly so I couldn't hear, but both glanced at me.
"What?"
His eyes narrowed and darkened. His hold on my hand became possessive.
I asked again, "Carter? What is it?"
He turned, his decision made, and he curved a hand into the place between my shoulders blades. He started to walk with me down a hallway. As we got further along, I saw Mike waiting for us and then I recognized it was the same box where I had left Noah and Theresa. I dug my feet in. I didn't know what was going on, but I knew he was going to leave me there. Something came up and he needed to handle whatever it was, but I didn't want to be left behind.
"Emma?"
"No." I shook my head. "You're not leaving me." Not again.
