Publisher's Summary

I shouldn't have remembered him. 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...Cole Mauricio.

Great but could have been better

The story was excellent. The narrators did an excellent job, however the female narrator was too youthful sounding for this story. A more mature sounding narrator would have been a better fit for the story theme and characters. It was slightly distracting to me as a listener/reader. Other than that it was excellent. If you can handle the voice not fitting the characters than check it out.

There are hardly words....

I LOVE Tijan, I have devoured EVERY book she has written, and read or listened to most more than once.

This story is no different- however, I think it's best left in print.

This narrator is indeed talented, and I believe has the ability to make a story a great listen... just not this one.

It didn't work for me, it felt wrong and made it hard to listen to the story.. distracting and unsettling.

JUST BAD VERY BAD

Laura Darrell was the worst narrator I have ever heard. She sound like a 5 year old child and could not change her voice for each character. I really tried to listen to this book all the way through, but I just couldn't, it was that bad

Love this story!

Emotional, dark yet sexy and erotic. I highly recommend it and would like to listen to the story again. Don't skip this one because it's a fantastic tale and I loved it.

SADLY IT DIDN'T QUITE DELIVER

I loved loved loved Carter Reed and had this book preordered eagerly awaiting its release.. but unfortunately it didn't quite live up to my expectations. It could've been because of the 'too young' narration which didn't fit the characters, it could've been because I was expecting more than just TWO chapters from Cole's POV.. or it could've been because of the storyline.

For me, the first third of the book dragged on a bit too much before Addison eventually spoke to Cole, she kept secrets from her best friend who had supported and stood by Addison through, and long after, her husband's death.. and any sex scenes were tepid, weak and extremely mild. However, on the plus side there was mystery, secrets, a twist or three and Cole.. well he was everything I hoped he'd be - protective, mysterious, loyal, sexy, dangerous.. and smokin hot.

Worth a credit? Sorry, but it's a 50/50 this time round.

Cole & Addison Story

Okay, yes, Cole was really good. 

Before I get to my review, the guy narrator had a slow, low voice, when he was reading Cole part, I mean only 'Cole' 2 parts in the book. Lol! 

Anyways, this story was good, different from the other books I read by Tijan, but I can say I like me some Cole, but he will never replace Logan Kade, nope lol. When I was reading this book, I figured it was a reason why Dorian didn't like Addison. Humph, now I see why he didn't like her, I also didn't see that coming at all in the situation with her (Addison) in-laws (Liam mother) not only her but with DORIAN. Smh, Glad it ended with a happy ending. 

P. S. CAN'T WAIT TO READ ABOUT CARTER REED!

Returned the book

I read the book and loved it! Then purchased the audio book to listen to on the go. Since the book is called Cole, and two narrators are listed, I thought it would be read by both the male and female narrators.

Unfortunately, I never heard the male narrator. I would have been able to deal with the miscast female voice if there was a strong male voice to balance it.

Listened to the first six chapters and didn't hear him. So I started to skip to the next chapter and the next to try and hear his POV.

It is a very good mafia book that is best read. Save your credit.

Entertaining!

I really like a mafia romance that offers something besides an inside view of the hostile work environment. This book delivers! Unlike other "dark" romance novels, this one focuses on the journey of the two people as the decide to choose each other despite the outside influences that could keep them apart. I don't like to give spoilers, but I found this book to be entertaining, with all the right "feels" for a good romance novel.

I enjoyed the storyline, but the female performance was lacking. However Tijan is such a great author I did not feel it was fair to knock her work by giving it less than the four stars. I found it was well worth my credit do to the characters and story line. NOT the performance which is why it did not get a five star rating.

Good

I love a good mafia story and this one doesn't disappoint. There's so much intrigue and the mystery of the unknown that it kept me listening from start to finish.

A couple of things bothered me that kept this from ranking higher. The first is the amount of times that the words "best friends" is spoken. These characters are 30 and for them to not only speak to each other in third person using the term "best friend" but also to never introduce each other as anything but "best friend", it got a little distracting for me. If I had the ebook, I would be giving an exact number those words were spoken, but it was a lot.

The next is that I felt the female main character accepted this extreme lifestyle very easily. I am not so sure that it is in any way realistic or believable. Not that it has to be, but I really thought that because of her personality, she would question it a little more.

Then there is Cole. The mafia boss, yet a gentle giant. I really wanted him to have more of a fierceness to him that I would imagine someone of his profession would have. I really wanted more from him.

So there you have it. Gripping storyline, just some things that pulled me out of the story and made me think about them instead of intently listening.

Laura Darrell and Stephen Dexter were great narrators. I, again thought Stephen should have had more of a presence in his voice for a mob boss but I can't complain when the character didn't have that presence either.
