Love stalking fictional characters? Enjoy sleepless nights and nervous breakdowns? Need some Italian love and comfort while having your heart ripped out and thrown in the whirlpool of raw emotions? Sounds like your idea of entertainment then head over to Amazon and get the Book 1 of The Carrero series by L. T. Marshall. Please join me in my crib…
IT WILL DESTROY YOU AND YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!
Until I finished the most recent book, Book 5 of the series, I haven’t realized how bad my addiction was. I am now expected to wait for another book, it’s not even that long but that’s not the point, RIGHT?
The Carrero Effect, The Carrero Influence, The Carrero Solution
The first three books follow the story of Jake and Emma. Jake (Jacob) is Italian hunk, multimillionaire with serious attitude problem. He is just such a complex character, so Italian, so alpha male, so steaming hot and just so Carrero. Funny, charming and total sex god, has women throwing themselves on him and obviously loves it. Emma as his PA is built to handle him (at least it seems on the surface), strong woman with painful history. Their story uncovers a lot more than just their affection and sexual tension. They become friends and share things, they weren’t ready to uncover in front of anyone else. Emma’s story and Jake’s persistence to break through her wall, she so carefully built over the years, will have you going from crying your eyes out, anger outburst to just warm fluffy feeling. Each of three books is so different and characters develop so much, there is just no way not to read them all at once. The best about those books is: you don’t read them, you feel them…
The Carrero Heart – Beginning, The Carrero Heart – The Journey
The first three books just destroyed me, so bad so, I didn’t pick up another book by this author for few weeks. However I just couldn’t put my heart and mind to other books, I simply had to go back to Carrero family and continue with series. Now I knew what to expect, at least I thought so, I prepared myself mentally and picked up Book 4.
It follows Carrero family some years later and covers the story of Jake’s brother Arrick and his best girl-friend Sophie. Arrick being Carrero, shares few family traits with his brother, good looks being the obvious one. He’s a lot calmer, with less explosive personality (unless drunk) and just so soft and gentle. Especially when it comes to Sophie, he’s been protecting and supporting since her teenage years. Sophie will definitely take you on wild journey full of alcohol influenced rage, emotional outburst but she is also a character who made me cry, my heart felt breaking for her. Her story and a little warrior personality just affected me the most. Now to just wait for more..
Is this a review? Probably no, it’s more like a little wrap up of my opinions and emotions after I finished 5 books of the series. It’s been a while since I’ve had sleepless nights because of the books. You pick them up, read them and can’t stop thinking about them. Carreros have Effect, Influence and Solution and definitely Heart! I am so excited to read more from L. T. Marshall and need more of my Carrero dose soon.
Not so much of a review but definitely recommendation that comes with a little warning. If you are prepared to feel like this
or at least you think you are, go for it! It’s one of the best series that just pulled me into the story and
