Carter bought his way out of the Mafia to protect Emma, but when an old ghost returns to the Mauricio family, a chain of events starts that can harm everyone. While Carter must decide to return to the Mauricio family or not, a face that is oddly familiar to Emma comes into her life. She's given the chance to discover more about her family while tension between the rivaling Mauricio and Bertal families comes to a head in an explosive way. The truce is officially off, and when the two worlds collide, Carter's decision is made.
He didn't start this war, but he will end it. He will do anything to protect Emma.

I live in the outback Australia and so love to listen to a good raunchy kickass story where the female is tall strong and in total control.
Carter Reed 2, the story line was a little mundane, no electricity like the first book.
"EVERY BIT AS GRIPPING & ENJOYABLE AS BOOK 1"
The pulse-pounding action continues as Carter gives up his Mafia interests and hands it all over to his friend/Mafia son Cole despite being begged to take over as Boss. But he can't yet walk away because someone is still after Emma and repeatedly tries to kill her.. and they come very very close to succeeding. This sends Carter into a protective frenzy as he tries to second-guess, outwit and destroy any and all threats against the love of his life. Emma comes face to face with her long lost sister and that stirs up dark memories and there's unexpected answers too but unfortunately her sister is about to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
I've loved these two listens - this is equally as riveting, addictive and pulse-pounding as book 1 and this time there's a few more Chapters from Carter's POV. Both narrators did a great job at bringing all the characters and action to life.
Worth a credit? Yes.. and I'm eagerly anticipating Cole's story.
"all around get"
fast paced, never a boring moment, a book I will most definitely advise my book friends to read/ listen to.
I loved this book. The first one wasn't too bad either, but this one definitely out did the first one. I love the strong character Emma became. This book was full on drama, twists, passion, and even had some funny parts. What a wonderful book.
This audiobook wasn't as good as the first one for me, even though they added a second voice for Carter. It seemed to drag on despite the action. The narration was quite good though and you do get a resolution of sorts to Carter and Emma's story.
"WHAT THE HECK!!"
I don't even know what to say other than, WOW! I loved this book more than the first and Tijan so has to have a third book in this series. Like you left me wanting and hoping for more.
I would so take Carter out, who else....hehehehe! He is just, WOW!
I have read this series several times and have listened to them several times as well. Again Tijan you yank me right into your world with in minutes of opening your books!
I really enjoyed the Carter Reed story. I was really hoping that Emma and Carter had a family. I hope the series continues through each character with their own story. I would really like to hear more about Cole, he sounds so interesting but overall it was a well written book.
"Even better than the first"
I was nervous that the sequel wouldn't live up to the first, but this not only met my expectations but completely exceeded them.
Tijan's writing is excellent. The narrator is the same as the first and she did an awesome job. They added a second narrator for Carter's chapters, and even though I almost always love the dual narration, I didn't feel that it was necessary for this book. The male narrator didn't detract from the story, he was good. But his voice didn't necessarily enhance the listening experience either.
The storyline itself was unexpected. The book picks up where the first installment leaves off. The twists and turns that this story throws at you leaves you on the edge of your seat and waiting for the next curve. The background gives insight to the questions you didn't realize you had during the first book. Carter is Carter, fiercely protective of Emma and all entails. Emma progresses and becomes a more developed character than when we met her before. I greatly enjoyed this book, dare I say almost more than the first.
"10 stars for Tijan and narrators!"
This is a great book from start to finish. Can read by itself or read the first book (highly recommended). Great romance, suspense and intense drama continue in 2nd book. I love Tijan's writing. Would love for this book story line to continue!
"I heart Carter Reed"
That is all. Well, ok; I loved all the characters in this book. Lots of craziness. love the mafia back story
Another great read, I read the book on kindle first and was chomping and the bit for the audio version. Loved it just as much if not more! Action, betrayal, steamy love scenes and a twist you DON'T see coming!
"Should have been so much better!!!"
What an ineffectual female! Always banging on about fighting and going into the storm with Carter and she ends up having an out of body experience or sitting there like a dummy. What a wasted opportunity to really show some kick ass character.
As for Carters crew all but being annihilated he can't have taught them much!
Too much waffling and not enough action.
"Wow. Equally as good as Book 1"
Yes, as long as they are friends that love my kind of books
Love Carter so much. The perfect bad boy/mega hot mob boss. Love, the love and devotion Emma and Carter have for each other. They really are soulmates. Emma chooses Carter over all else, including family and friends when it comes to the crunch. They are so much in sync, they are so meant to be together. Loved this story, a lot of twists and turns, lots of romance, love, family and friendship, along with gunshots, kidnapping and fighting. Love love love ❤️
