Way too short

I am upset the story wasn't longer. I've purchased almost every book you both have written together and separately. I love this genre of books.

Great Book,Horrible Reader

I am a huge fan of Ashley and Jaquavis. I thoroughly enjoyed learning the backstory on Carter and Taryn. What i hated was the reader. He had no inflections and his tone during descriptive scenes was awful. I will never choose a book narrated by him again.

Book Length

The length of the book Carter Diamond 1 and 2 could have been one book.

Too short.

I've fallen in love with these characters and this entire storyline. I wish this book was longer, but now I'm off to book 2.
