The Carrero Effect: Book one of the Carrero Trilogy

Emma Anderson has everything in her life worked out. She has her perfect job in a Manhattan empire allowing her to live a quiet and organised safe existence. A necessity to her, after a childhood filled with bad memories, abuse, and a mother who was less than useless. But, with it comes a problem, one that could derail everything she thought she needed in her life. Her promotion sends her straight into the close employment of young, gorgeous, playboy billionaire, Jacob Carrero with his formidable reputation for being a player. Stuck as his right-hand man, every waking moment of every single day, she realises he is exactly the type of person who could drive her crazy, and not in a good way. Like chalk and cheese, he is everything she's not. Compulsive, confident, laid back, dominant and fun, with a seriously laid back attitude to casual sex and dating. Jake is the only one with an ability to steamroll over her manicured ice maiden exterior, who is not phased by the closed in demeanour and cool manners, but as much as she wants to, letting him in is another thing entirely. A past that made her man wary and no desire to ever let one close enough to hurt her again, Jacob Carrero has his work cut out. He is not someone who takes NO for an answer and will have to learn how to break through if he wants more than the mask she shows the world. Jake needs to show her that even some one like him can change when that one girl that matters breaks through. Love-able sexy characters and deep emotional topics. Contains some mature, adult content and language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, emotional, addictive

By Taryn Leigh - author of Perfect Imperfections

What an emotional roller coaster of a book! I didn’t know whether to love or hate Jake. In fact I’m still not sure whether I love or hate him and that is what makes this book so brilliant. It keeps you hooked until the last page and then leaves you wanting more!

Being part of a Trilogy I didn’t know how LT Marshall would make a love story want to make you reaching for Book two, but she did a phenomenal job! Now all you want to do is reach for the second one in the series, to see if what you want to happen, will actually happen.

The dynamics of the relationships are definitely intense and left me wondering about Emma’s state of mind and why she is the way she is.

For those who love Romance that deals with real issues, then these are definitely the books for you. There is love and lust and heartache and pain. There are friendships and relationships that can give you a check of your own reality.

Amazon studio reader review - 5 stars November 30, 2017

Most novels fall short after the first two but these just keep getting better.
It could quite easily be adapted for television or big screen and I would be first inline.
A modern romantic drama, with twists and turns that you least expect.
Set in America around high society but with that girl next door appeal.
From rags to riches for the main character and a story line that at times is hard on an emotional level dealing with the hard hitting topic of child abuse. Giving an incite into the psychological and emotional torment of the main character..
The characters are relatable and easy to fall in love. Even when at times you want to scream at their inability to just go with the flow and being held back by themselves..
Set in some fantastic locations that have been described perfectly by the author.
Who would not want to film in the Hamptons, NY and a luxury yacht.
Ending the first three novels you are left sobbing as the main characters dreams come true but not in a typical boy meets girl, fall in love, happy ever after. That would be too easy for the author. Instead you are lead on an emotional rollercoaster that really pulls you into the characters feelings.

This needs to be a movie....
