So I absolutely LOVE Tijan and I couldn't wait for this read. This ends up at like 2.5 for me. Just OK for me, or maybe just too short to even be OK. Sorry! *Spoilers ahead!* There is absolutely no true character development for the hero, Carter Reed, and the heroine, Emma, either. Absolutely very little complexity or depth to them at all. No, Carter did not end up as a book-boyfriend of mine. The heroine is whiny and complaining throughout most of the book. There's no spunk to her to her at all. Her relationship with Carter almost comes out of the blue when, at 40% (after she's asked Carter for help and they've exchanged a total of, like, 20 words) they're in love. Both of them. WHAT? When did this happen?!

He has gone on a mass murdering spree for her, and we never really get to see WHY he's doing all this other than her dead brother and because "it's for her". Really - what does he see in her? What did they share in the past or even present to make him do all this for her? There's NOTHING. NOTHING we can see or be convinced of. They have no communication, no common interest, share very little with each other, just seem to be going through the moves as the plot demanded them to. I don't buy into the "suddenly in love" part when he appears until like 12% and then there were tons of scenes in between where they hardly interacted. The rest of the scenes between them, after the 40% "WE'RE IN LOVE" revelation, are EMO and OTT. Where's the growth in the relationship? There is NONE. No build up, and no growth later.

She ends up with this killer who she supposedly knows as young but we don't even see a glimpse of their former interactions and they hardly have a decent conversation in the present where she's not needing to be reassured.

I wanted to love this book. The blurb was right up my alley. But as I read I felt like there were a lot of things missing. I never felt that passion between the two characters except when they were having sex which was often and random. I just felt I was missing their connection. I really just didn't get it. I am so bummed that I didn't love it. I felt that there were a lot of time when the author was saying the same thing yet not saying anything at all. Oh well can't love them all!

This was a book that really, really struggled to review.

If I was going to base this book on just the lead female, Emma--it would get a two.

But since Carter was so awesome, and the rest of the characters make a sort of epic emotional evolution I had to get the story as a whole credit where it is due.

So, I was off to a great start.

Enter girl. Enter girl coming home early. Enter girl walking in on her friend being brutally rapped and beat so bad she was pretty much close to death at the rate this dude was going at her. Enter friend mindlessly walking to a floorboard. Enter girl grabbing a loaded gun. Enter girl whimpering said rapists name. Cut to girl shooting rapist point blank in the head.

AWESOME START!

I admit, if I was in her place--I would shoot the guy too.

I have a very low tolerance for sex crimes. Therefore, killing the culprit. I am in favor of this type of violence.

So, we continue.

Now, girl needs to be protected because go figure. Rapist is the son of a mob enforcer (This isn't totally laid at but this is what I'm assuming since this dudes men are the ones doing the hits on people.)

Enter--Carter Reed.

Now, I was giving Emma a huge amount of leeway. I mean her best friend is broken. She had to shoot someone in the head. And now she faces the possibility of her life being ended very horribly by mob enforcers. I might have a mini meltdown at this point too.

However, this mini meltdown continues throughout the whole book.

I mean I consider myself a pretty strong person. I would have done the same thing if I was here. Yet, if a mob family was after me?

Okay. I really didn't want to rate this book, as I did not finish reading it, but amazon wouldn't let me post without rating it. Anyway, I am seriously confused by the little I've read.

The main character (Not really a spoiler) seeks out Carter for help. When she finds him he keeps her in the dark because he doesn't really know if she is who she says she is. He asks her a couple of questions, determines it's her. Doesn't sound too bad, right? Well, a couple of pages later he tells her that he has always been protecting her. That he joined whoever the heck it is he works with with the condition that he can watch over her and take care of her.

Umm... a couple of pages back you didn't even know who she was...

Then... she is on the run from some bad people and needs to be in hiding. Only she can't miss work so she returns to work as if nothing happened. Like that wouldn't be the first place they would look for her?

That is where I quit the story. Too many holes in the story for me. Sucks too because I was enjoying it.
