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.
I really feel that this was Emma’s story. Carter was just all dark and mysterious, I was instantly drawn to him and just wanted to hang out and see what he was going to do next. Even though he was a dominating force, he did not overpower. I loved how he instantly protected Emma and how all the secondary characters, did not just blend into the background but became part of Emma’s life.
Emma is a fighter and it was so nice to read a story that had a really strong female lead. Can not wait for the next part and will be recommending it to my friends.
