Review: Carter Reed

Carter Reed - Tijan

Awful mafioso-style romance. The heroine is a total dimwit who had frequent panic attacks during which she became almost catatonic. Several pages would pass with the hero saying,

 

"Emma"

 

"Emma"

 

"Emma"

 

"Emma"

 

And all you would get from Emma was an incoherent rambling internal monologue. Such an annoying drama queen.

 

Carter, the hero, veers between an OTT Mafioso and a globe-trotting Bruce Wayne. He keeps leaving Emma to go somewhere REALLY IMPORTANT but I think he was just trying to get away from her whining. He is always pressing himself against Emma, moving her, pinning her and pulling her this way and that. I think it's supposed to be sexy but instead it makes her seem even more brainless.

 

The plot was flimsy and stretched out way too long. If you want to read mafioso romance there is better stuff free online (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13243634-beast or https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10221791-dmitry-s-closet).
