He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn’t know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all.
But I could feel him.
The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated.
The second time was different.
He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed.
That was just the beginning.
He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name…
I believe this is my forth Tijan book with Carter Reed being my favorite. Once COLE hit my iPad, it was game on and I didn’t come up for air until the very end. The biggest reason I devour a Tijan book is the plot twist. It’s always there, it always shocks me and COLE did not disappoint.
As much as I loved the plot, it was the romance that lagged for me. I loved Addison and Cole’s characters but them together…I didn’t get the “feels”. It felt rushed and I never felt the moment the connection switch went on. I wanted to get more of Cole’s POV and to know his character better because he is a supreme badass with a softer side.
Now I want to go back and read Carter Reed, who does make a few appearances in this story!
