An Excerpt from Carter Reed 2
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 just want to start by saying “TIJAN BLEW. ME. AWAY with CR2!” … There is no denying my love for all things CORRIGAN AND then never to be denied, naughty LOGAN!
ALL of Tijans books have my heart in an uproar… She just makes the characters come alive in a way that I am literally IN THE STORY!! So, with CR2 I was expecting to be involved, but NOT so emotional…… Seriously people, I blubbered! in a crime, mafia novel!! Leave it to our Tijan to cause that in ME! The shoot em’ up mafia books are not my normal, but I do venture there on occasions I had a slight obsession with Carter Reed..He was just so badass.. totally alpha male personalized!! On a mafia level… Like don’t F$@K with him or he a WILL kill you! eeep scary! He made me sweat! His presence in a room was noticed by all.. Even lil ole me, as I read. He made my heart pound!! BUT… He took our Emma and made her safe! What a man, what a man, what a MIGHTY good man!!
In CR2…Emma SHOWS UP!! And her BADASSERY is shown throughout the book…. I fell in LOVE with the WOMEN of CR2!!! They all just rocked it for me!
Amanda got a boyfriend, and let’s just say he doesn’t run in the same circle as Carter. Some super tough choices needed to be made by the girls. Theresa and Carter? umm yeah…NOT each others favorite… Relationships are put to the test! And some commitments are strengthened.
And OMGosh… Can we talk about Cole?!? Another hot, sexy, alpha mafia man.. Good lawd?!? Tijan got herself twisted in hot mafia men!!! Cole comes back to take over his family’s business He and Carter have been like brothers for a long time… They trust each other, but adding Emma is another story… in the book it’s weird they are super close, but yet you FEEL this tension.. I did anyways…I felt Carter JEALOUS… Ha Ha… I felt sorry for Cole at times, and yet I KNEW he was just as strong.. (Enter me blubbering) He just respected Carter… Two mafia families going after each other. No one knowing who to trust.. Men vowed to keep your ladies safe… The ladies are badass, and wanna protect their man!
Your never going to guess who’s the cause of all the problems .. I was kinda shocked.
I laughed.. I honestly cried.. Was in suspense… Dun dun dun donn “who done it?”… It’s a nail biting, shoot em’ up, suspenseful, super sexy hot romantic love story!!!
Like I said.. I was blown away.. Don’t miss out on Carter, and Cole eeep
** “He was scared of losing me, but it went the other way too. No one would take him away from me. I WOULDN’T ALLOW IT!” ~Emma ❤️
