Carter Reed (Carter Reed #1) by Tijan

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 her 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.

Ommm.....maybe I should have read it when it first came out. I didn't get the same feeling everyone else got. Perhaps, I'm too tainted??

This book has been on my TBR list for quite a while and I wanted to read it since book 2 was released last month. I love a good mafia/alpha male/stone-cold killer book with romance and hot sex. This book has ALL of this but SURPRISINGLY, it did not work for me. WTH, something is a missed!!
