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.
My thoughts after reading...
I have to say that I want a "Carter Reed" in my life!!! I mean, who doesn't right? Right.
So the story starts when Emma finds her best-friend and roomie being raped when she came home from a would-be work-out session at the gym. Of course her instinct was to save her best-friend and herself. She shoots said rapist square in the head and I guess that was a good thing. But said rapist is the beloved son of a mafia-boss and thats where her trouble started to become a clusterfuck of sorts.
Although I really do believe Emma did the right thing, she didn't deserve the predicament & perplexities that came with it. In the first place, its her roomies fault she was in that situation. She kept on hooking-up with these losers and douchebags without a care for self-preservation when it comes to sex. She was a woman of the world... Although nobody deserves to be raped...but like I said, her sleeping around was the catalyst in leading her to that situation.
I pity Emma for having lost her brother a few years back. She's literally alone in life. I felt her lost and grief, having to witness her brother's murder first-hand. I'm not sure anybody can get over that. She was lucky enough Carter Reed, her brother's best-friend was around to watch her, though from afar at first.
Carter Reed was also connected to a rival mafia family, so it kinda got messy and bloody as we go through the story... And oh, as it turns out Carter is in love with Emma for a long time.
Stories about falling in love with your best-friend's sister or vice-versa always gives me butterflies in my tummy...and how swoon-worthy is this Carter Reed, really?? He would declare war for her... Give his life for her if needed be. I mean nobody does that!!! Hell chivalry is almost dead in this day and age! Carter Reed is the ultimate knight in shining armor.
I would've wanted to read more about Carter and Emma. Probably read about them getting married and raising a family. I wanted the complete HEA. Well, I'm mushy...so...
This is the most action-packed love story I've read. In fact, more action-packed than Michelle Leighton's Bad Boy's series. The story had me on the edge of my seat, biting on my nails!
