Blurb

Carter bought his way out of the mafia to protect Emma, but when an old ghost returns to the Mauricio Family, a chain of events starts that can harm everyone. While Carter must decide to return to the Mauricio Family or not, a face that is oddly familiar to Emma comes into her life. She’s given the chance to discover more about her family while tensions between the rivaling Mauricio and Bertal Family comes to a head in an explosive way. The truce is officially off, and when the two worlds collide, Carter’s decision is made.

He didn’t start this war, but he will end it.

He will do anything to protect Emma.

Review by: Lisa 

Carter Reed is once again - The Man!

Tijan has done it again!

She took this dark and sexy "bad boy" that she created back when and made us fall in love with him for the second time. The author kept the ongoing excitement in this book that was just as consistent in the first book. It was full of so many different twist, turns, and most importantly emotions, there was not a chance that you could've wanted to put it down for a moment.

You've brought into the dark world of Carter Reed once again. His world is dangerous and complicated but the one thing that makes him whole is Emma. Emma is a very strong heroine in this book as with many of Tijan's main ladies and that's just one reason I adore this author's books. I suppose if you're going to be Carter Reed's sidekick romantically, you'd have to be one strong bada$$ and she rises to the challenge just as she did prior. 

The storyline flowed flawlessly from the first book to the second. It was as if Miss Tijan just picked up where she left off and wrote this second half with such ease. I was incredibly satisfied by the time I was done reading and was sadden that it came to an end but I know I'll always have not 1 but 2 Carter Reed's to reread whenever I want too bc they're that amazing!

Tijan is not a New York Times Best Seller for no reason. She creates these storylines and if you read her other books, it truly amazes me how she can jump from being in the mafia to a pair of brothers that melt your panties off. Her talent is endless and I've been a fan of hers for a long time now but I'm also honest in my thoughts so this review is how I truly feel about this book without exaggeration. Carter Reed 2 is a #MUSTREAD!

Thank You Tijan for yet another masterpiece!

Review by: Tera 

Love me some Carter Reed! 
Carter Reed was the first Tijan book I fell in love with ..since then of course I am slowly making my way through all of Ms. T's books...her writing style is so unique and addicting ..So when I heard there was gonna be more Carter I was very excited...I must admit though..through parts of this one  I found myself just a tad confused ...just trying to piece together & keep up with everything ..because once things start happening ..they really take off ..lol..
Emma is dealing with new challenges as well as Carter dealing with his own set of obstacles  ...I love these two..they are great together!  Some things "found" ...some lost ..some heartache ...some happy!  Like I said ...love me some Carter...Recommended  Read!

Excerpt One

We’d been learning how to shoot for a couple of months now. It had been Theresa’s idea, and these sessions had started to replace our wine nights. It had also been her idea to have Noah be our instructor. Carter was the better shot, but Theresa still liked to keep her distance from him. He still made her uneasy.
Amanda had asked her about it one night at their apartment when I’d gone to the bathroom. I stopped in the hallway when I’d overheard Theresa explain, “It’s not that I don’t like him. It’s just…he’s a killer, Amanda. He’s dangerous. I know he loves her, and I know if anyone is going to protect her, it will be him, but…” She’d sighed. “I don’t know. He’s known as the Cold Killer. It’s hard to get past that, even though I know Emma loves him so much.”
Amanda had asked, “Are you worried for her?”
“No.” She’d hesitated. “I mean…maybe. I’m not worried for her from him, but because of him. He’s with the mafia.”
“She said he’s out.”
“Yeah, well, is anyone really out?”
Amanda had replied, “She wasn’t in trouble before because of him. Emma and I did that all on our own.”
“I know. I really do, and I feel bad, but I’m just on edge with the guy. He’s deadly. Can’t you see it in his eyes?” Theresa got up for the kitchen. “I need a refill. You?”
I had melted backward, back into the bathroom. When she’d crossed the hallway, the bathroom door was shut.
Glancing over at her now, I remembered how her smiles had seemed more forced that night, her laughter a little louder, and the secretive looks she’d sent Amanda’s way. They were roommates. They were going to talk about me. That was obvious, but I’d been hurt, though I knew I shouldn’t have been.
Theresa worried about me. I tried to keep telling myself it was as simple as that.
I tried.

Teaser Quotes

A tingle started in the base of my stomach, and it rose up, spreading through my body, warming me as it went, until I was almost salivating for him. When I saw him, I needed to touch him. It had been like this for a year, and I never wanted it to end. I always wanted to thirst for him.

He murmured against my skin, “Why is it that your presence can calm me? Your touch can make me alive, and one little sigh from you makes me want to sleep for days in your embrace?”
I smiled, moving to press a kiss to his ear. “Because you love me.”

Pulling me back into his arms, he nudged my legs farther apart, moving closer, and pressed his lips to the underside of my jaw. He whispered, “Never.” Another kiss to the corner of my lips. “Ever.” A third kiss, his lips resting atop mine and he murmured, “I promise. Nothing will ever happen to you.”
“Because you need to understand. It’s time you know more. You’re mine, Emma. My first allegiance is to you. Things are going to happen now, and I can’t control them. The Mauricio family has always followed me."
Suddenly I realized—he was going back in. A tear formed in my eye, and I ignored it. This was what he was telling me. I swallowed over a lump. “What happens now?”
He didn’t answer at first. Then he let out a soft breath of air and turned, his eyes pained. He said one word: “War.”

I closed my eyes and just felt her. She trailed a hand down my face, tracing my lips. That small touch, so gentle, so loving. That was Emma.

No other woman made me feel like this. It was her, only her. Opening my eyes, I found her watching me and smiling as her chest heaved for air.
"I love you," she murmured.
Goddamn. I kissed her and whispered against her lips, "I love you too."

I closed my eyes and held the man I loved. Resting my forehead to his, I placed my arms on his shoulders as he held my hips. His thumbs rubbed back and forth. This. Right here. He was the most powerful man I knew, and he was all mine.

Author Information
tijan bio.jpeg

I didn't begin writing until after undergraduate college. There'd been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can't blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I'm hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.
