Synopsis for COLE’:

I shouldn’t have remembered him.
He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn’t know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all.
But I could feel him.
The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated.
The second time was different.
He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed.
That was just the beginning.
He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name…
Cole Mauricio

My β€˜Blogging Readers ARC-Review’ after reading ‘COLE’:

“Cole” is the latest novel from author TIJAN. If you’re familiar with the amazing Carter Reed Series, you’ll absolutely want to read this. This novel falls into the genres of new adult and dark contemporary romance. It definitely offers a satisfying amount of suspense as well. Cole is written in the main character P.O.V’s(Point of views) of Addison Bowman and Cole Mauricio.

Addison moved to Chicago two years earlier with her husband Liam and their dog Frankie. When her world was hit by a heartbreaking incident, she had to do her best not to fall apart. Her best friend Sia finds a place for Addison, she considers the move. The place Sia found is an exclusive, beautiful building simply called “The Mauricio.” To escape the ghosts and the loneliness, Addison decides to make the move. She has no idea how much her life would change from this point on. Will Addison be able to regain her life? How will this move change her world?

Cole Mauricio is the leader of a very powerful and dangerous Mafia Family. He lived and survived during a war between the Mauricio family and the Bertal family, barely. He tries to keep some small portion of normalcy in his life with the well-protected and private apartment building that he owns. When he meets his newest tenant, his attraction to her is alluring but also dangerous in a completely different way. Will the peace between the families continue or will something break that rocky peace apart?

“Cole” is a compelling novel that definitely can be read as a stand-alone but is more pleasurable if you read The Carter Reed novels prior. It’s fascinating to see familiar characters from Tijan’s “Carter Reed” story intertwine in this latest novel. This story-line truly delivers on a blossoming romance, with seductive characters, and the fast-paced action and suspense. I recommend this alluring read for those who can enjoy a lot of sexy romance tied into the Mafia world. And for fans of The Carter Reed and Cole novels, you’ll be excited to hear that a Carter Reed 3 novel is coming soon! So be ready. As for “Cole,” you should for sure not pass this one up! πŸ™‚

Anti-Stepbrother 1

β˜…

Synopsis for ANTI-STEPBROTHER’:

He told me to ‘settle, girl.’
He asked if ‘something was wrong with me?’
He said I was an β€˜easy target.’
That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.
I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha.

He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother.

Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming.

I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?

Standalone.

β˜…

My β€˜Blogging Readers Review’ after reading ‘Anti-Stepbrother’:

“Anti-Stepbrother” is definitely not your run-of-the-mill stepbrother love interest kind of story. Author Tijan brings an entertaining story that doesn’t hold back on delivering what it is intended to give readers: The Satisfaction of a great story. This exciting novel comes from the New Adult and Romance genres and truly does not fall short in the romance department. “Anti-Stepbrother” has been written from the two main characters P.O.V.’s(point of views) from Summer Stoltz and Caden Banks.

Summer Stoltz is thrust into an instant new family when her father falls quickly for Sheila Matthews, the mother of the most popular boy at her high school, Kevin Matthews. Not only did he quickly become her attractive new stepbrother, but he had also been Summer’s huge crush. Her mother passed away from cancer, making her father’s speedy relationship become the talk of the town. When her graduation day arrived, a moment is shared with Summer and Kevin, causing her to have stronger feelings for him. But are the feelings mutual?

Caden Banks is tall, handsome, tattooed, and doesn’t like to partake in the typical frat-party lifestyle even though that is a large part of his current situation. He’s usually broody. His fraternity brothers respect him and most female classmates have a crush on him.Β  Most of his peers don’t know that Caden and his brother Marcus carry a secret that that their parents seem in denial about while Caden seems to bear the majority of the weight that exists from their family secret. It wasn’t his initial choice in life but no matter how dysfunctional his family is in some ways, he chooses to carry extra responsibilities. When Caden and Summer first meet, it’s not with sweet words or flirtatious innuendo. None of that was even a thought at all. Summer and Caden will find that life tends to throw necessary surprises into your life when you may least expect it.

When Summer begins college, she learns so much more about love, overcoming disappointments, healing from tragedy, and she learns much more about herself. “Anti-Stepbrother” is a swirl of moments that are fun, touching, engaging, and enjoyable all blended together. The characters are wonderful and easy to get drawn into their lives because of their satisfying differences. Summer’s silly wit and random humor at times, was delightful and matched well for a character like Caden, who at times had moments in his life to be moody about. It made for a believable growth between the two characters and why they would begin to have an attraction for each other. And then you had the wrench in their plans by the name of Kevin. I recommend this for readers who enjoy a story about young adults growing into who they are while dealing with love, heartbreak, and life’s uncertainties. Check this one out if you’re looking for a great story to read next. πŸ™‚

My β€˜Blogging Reader’s Review’ for “Carter Reed 2” (Carter Reed Series – Book #2) by Tijan:

***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novel of the Carter Reed Series.***

Is it the return of the “Cold Killer”? This is a long awaited and much anticipated sequel novel in the Carter Reed Series titled: CARTER REED 2 by author Tijan. These book covers are not only mesmerizing but very hot! I’m a fan of this series and have been so excited about finally getting my hands on this book. As was the first novel of this series, Carter Reed 2 is not solely a romance but also encompasses the fantastic blend of suspense and action throughout the storyline. This dark suspense follows the world that surrounds the dangerous lifestyle of Carter Reed and Emma. Readers will get the two P.O.V’s(Point of views) to the story of Emma Martins and Carter Reed.

Emma Martin’s life has completely changed over the past year. After the ordeal that unfolded and lead to the events that transpired in the first novel, her life has completely changed. She was reunited with an old friend who was her deceased older brother A.J.’s best friend, Carter Reed. She needed help and he went above and beyond. She lost a special friend and it hurt her but she also toughened up instead of letting it all break her down. Now, Emma and Carter are faced with new challenges. The one beautiful thing that came from all of the destruction is the love and connection she now shares with the love of her life, Carter Reed. He says he’ll do anything to keep her safe. Fight to keep her safe…he will. Take down everyone that means her harm… of course. Destroy everyone’s lives that stand in their way…Definitely! But what he didn’t expect was how much Emma would also do everything in her power to protect him too.

Carter Reed was a high-ranking and greatly feared man from the Mauricio family, the rival family of the Bartel family. Carter’s reputation of being a ‘cold killer’ had followed him for the many years he had been a part of the mob world. Carter picked up the spot as leader of the Mauricio family until recent, when he wanted to step away from that world to protect the woman he loves. He’s deadly and can become a ghost when he’s hunting his enemies. He was planning to try to live a normal life with Emma at his side but this lifestyle isn’t that easy to step away from especially when there are enemies lurking and waiting to pull him back in.

The Bartel family continues to be a threat especially now that someone has come out of hiding. Cole. Cole is the only living son of the former leader of the Mauricio family. He’s determined to find his rightful place is leader of the family with Carter’s support but threats are everywhere now that everyone knows he is back. Cole has been taught and protected by Carter for the past five years. The only thing that Carter and Cole didn’t expect was that not only is there a threat from their known rivals but there are the possibilities that someone is a traitor within their own mafia family. Will these possible threats be found before someone pays with their life?Β 

Emma tries hard to pull away from the close friends she has left because of the dangers that exist around her and Carter. When she finds out new information about her past and her family, she gets caught up in the excitement of that. Unfortunately, when enemies are around, anyone close to them is at risk. Soon they are all in danger and the only thing left is to fight back, survive and save those they care about. Will they succeed or will there be death?

This story continues to definitely blur the lines between good and bad as well as who is trustworthy and not. This is truly one of my favorite novel series’ and Tijan delivers such an enticing yet dangerous world with amazing characters. The gritty dynamics will definitely hook you. I highly recommend this novel and this series because the twists and turns will blow your mind. Carter Reed is a sexy but dark killer who would do anything for the ones he loves, especially Emma. And Emma is not a weak female character. She stands her ground every chance she can, making her such a likeable character, too.Β  Check out this one for sure. Worth the read. Bravo!

β˜…β˜…β˜…MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘CARTER REED 2β€²β˜…β˜…β˜…

Emma’s thoughts:Β  In addition to being gorgeous, Carter was dangerous. He was known to be an assassin for a local mafia family, but what wasn’t known to anyone beyond a select few, was that he was out. He’d bought his way out, and he’d done it for me.

Emma’s thoughts:Β  …When my choices had seemed to be die or run for my life, I went to Carter: my brother’s best friend from childhood, the guy I knew because he’d slept on our couch for so many nights. This was still how I preferred to think of him, not as the man the city knew as the Cold Killer, Carter Reed. He was my soul mate.

Carter and Emma:Β 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.”

Carter’s thoughts: I was attached to the Mauricio family, even if I was in business with both families. But if they touched Emma, all bets were off.

Carter and Emma:Β  “I can’t lose you.”-(Carter)
“You won’t.”-(Emma)
“They could come for you.”
I shook my head. “You’re not in, right? You’re making money for them. Why would they want to hurt you?”
His hands rested over mine. “Because it’s not about money. It’s about power. They didn’t kill you before. I handed them a solution on a silver platter, but Cole is back. His presence changes everything. They thought he was dead. It’s a matter of time before they find out I’m the one who saved him.”

Emma’s thoughts: I loved this man. 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’s thoughts:Β  Dangerous. Yes. Carter was dangerous. I raked a hand up his arm, curled it around his chin, and pulled him down to me. But he was my danger. He was my protector. And he was mine to protect.

Carter Reed:Β  “You know what I did to the Bartels. I cut their family in half. If you touch Emma. If you betray Cole. If there is any attack on my loved ones, I will hold you responsible. I will do more than cut your family in half.”

Emma’s thoughts: Β Carter was my family.
He was the only one who counted.
Everything else would fall into place.

The Premise and
My β€˜Blogging Reader’s Review’ all rolled into one:

First I have to say that the cover of ‘Carter Reed’ may have had a bit of an influence on choosing to review this book. A great cover is always appreciated! πŸ™‚Β  I occasionally enjoy reading and reviewing a book that isn’t solely a romance novel. It’s good to mix it up sometimes. This review is about a book titled ‘Carter Reed’ by Tijan. It usually tells me how entertaining a book is to read when I find myself finishing the story in less than two days. That was the case as I read about the dark and suspense filled world that surrounds Carter Reed. This story will definitely blur the lines between good and bad. The story of Emma and Carter will lead you down a dangerous path where you find yourself wanting to root for a ‘cold killer’. And fellow readers, before I go further into the review I wanted to let you all know that you will get two P.O.V’s(Point of views) to the story which always gives you the chance to get more in touch with the characters and the story itself.

The story of ‘Carter Reed’ begins when Emma Martins comes home early from work instead of going to the gym, which was her usual routine. Upon her arrival she witnesses her roommate, Mallory getting raped by her boyfriend. After the initial shock, Emma decides to make a quick decision to help save her roommate from the rapist boyfriend Jeremy. As a few seconds pass, the choice Emma makes would change her life forever. Emma shoots Jeremy dead. Unfortunately Jeremy Dunvan happens to be the son of Franco Dunvan, a highly-ranked mobster from the Bartel family. He would be out for revenge against the person responsible for taking the life of his son.

The book’s namesake, Carter Reed is a high-ranking and greatly feared man from the Mauricio family, the rival family of the Bartel family. Carter’s reputation of being a ‘cold killer’ has followed him for the ten years he’s been a part of the mob world. He is feared because he’s deadly but with his handsome good looks, all eyes are always on him when he’s around.

Emma knew they would come for her, soon. She decides to go on the word of her older brother AJ, who was killed ten years earlier. He always told her that if she ever needed anything, to go to Carter. Carter Reed was AJ’s best friend and someone they both grew up with until AJ’s death.Β  Feeling like she had no other options, she seeks his help knowing that he has ties with the mob and is a powerful man now. Emma has no idea if Carter would even remember her or offer to help her. But desperate times call for desperate measures and her desperation takes her deeper into this dark world not knowing who she can trust.

The story ‘Carter Reed’ gives you a great blend of gritty dynamics and alluring moments. This book definitely had me hooked because of the suspense filled storyline and the reunion of Emma and Carter. There are twists and turns that will pull you in and keep you trying to figure out if Carter Reed is only a cold-killer or if there is more to him? Who can Emma really trust? The ‘ups’ in the story will keep the reader entertained while giving you some heartbreaking moments too. Yes, I do recommend ‘Carter Reed’ because it gives book lovers four of their favorite things: love, action, great characters and a gripping story.

β˜…β˜…β˜…MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘CARTER REEDβ€²β˜…β˜…β˜…

Emma’s thoughts:Β  “Go to Carter.”-AJ.Β Β  AJ’s words floated back to me, but I couldn’t. I probably should’ve, but there was no way. He had been my brother’s best friend over ten years ago.

Emma’s thoughts:Β  He gazed back at me, but this time it was the old Carter. The killer from before was gone. He gave me a small grin.Β Β  “I’ll take care of you.”-Carter.

Emma’s thoughts: Carter rose among their ranks when we were kids. He did it to avenge my brother. If he could do that, I could keep us alive. I had to.

Emma’s thoughts: My insides tightened. I couldn’t say it. It’d be real, but I already had said it out loud. Still, Carter was different. Once he knew, I couldn’t undo whatever would happen next.

Emma’s thoughts: This wasn’t the stranger anymore. This was Carter, the boy I had grown up with. I flung my arms around him and pulled him down. Instead of fighting, I clung to him now.

Carter: “They’re going to come for you, Emma. It’s only a matter of time, but when they do, they’ll learn who is protecting you and it should stop them.”

Carter:Β  “I’ve been protecting you since I joined the Mauricio family. You were why I joined them in the first place.”

Emma and Carter:Β  “You did all of that for me?”-Emma.Β  “I would declare war for you.”-Carter.

Emma’s thoughts: Β I readied myself. I stared at him, dead in the eyes, and waited. I was going to die. I knew it in that moment, and I couldn’t do anything to stop it.

Carter:Β  “I have been protecting you since you were a child, Emma. I’m not going to stop now.”

Emma and Carter: “You thought I was beautiful?”-Emma.Β Β  “If AJ wouldn’t have killed me, I would’ve kissed you a long time ago.”-Carter.

Carter: “Franco Dunvan is a monster, but I can’t pretend that I’m not like him. I became like him.”
