Carter Reed - Tijan

DNF at 49%...Why? Let me explain...

First of all the cover is super hot and the blurb intriguing. Emma shoots someone to protect her roommate which leads her to Carter Reed. That's the long and short of it. Here's what your missing:

A back story. Apparently there is one, but I was given so few details about it that I have a hard time believing the connection between Emma and Carter. There was nothing that made me care about either one of them.


Emma isn't the brightest crayon on the box and Carter's character doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. He is the "Cold Killer" but all you really know about him is that he owns a ton of property, has a lot of money and is always leaving to do something "important", while mumbling a few words here and there. He has about a dozen body guards who pretty much treat protecting him like he is the President of the United States.

Little character development coupled with a choppy story line that I had to force myself to pay attention to left me feeling sleepy (aka bored) all the time.

I think this could use another round of editing and fleshing out. There were many inconsistencies within the story. She was wearing a dress, but he took off her pants. Things like that. When it happens once, no big deal, but when you are noticing it more than once you begin to feel like the author did a rush job on the story.

I'm disappointed because I thought that this had a lot of potential and I was excited to read it, but I just don't have it in me to continue.
