⭐THE CARRERO SERIES
SPOILER ALERT BELOW
⭐The Carrero Effect – 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.
⭐The Carrero Influence – Emma Anderson has had her entire world turned upside down and not for the better. The only man in her life she has ever been able to trust is gone because she just couldn’t let him in, her job a distant memory, because of the fact she had been weak enough to let things go too far, and her future bleak. She has lost the facade she spent years perfecting and has been left in a desolate slump, trying to claw back some normality. She’s heartbroken, coming to terms with the fact that she loves him and she’s lost him, with no way to find her way back. That is until he walks straight back into her life, and maybe there is a chance at something more this time if he could maybe feel the same. But ‘more’ comes with analysing everything that’s come before, the mistakes they made, and the baggage that is now attached to him in the form of Marissa Hartley and his unborn child.
⭐The Carrero Solution – The final conclusion to the story of Emma Anderson and Jake Carrero. The Boss and PA who went from strangers to friends, friends to lovers, then lovers who have been torn apart by his stupid impulsive mistake. So much in their relationship left unsaid and un-remedied and neither know if they can find a way back to each other and fix what could have been the happy ever after they both need. Emma doesn’t know if she can go back or trust him again and so many complications cave in on her to cloud her way. He needs to find a way to prove once and for all that she is his world, and she needs to learn to stand up to the force that is Carrero if she is ever going to be happy.
Relationships that were flawed and need to find a better footing, and there are still problems hanging over them in the form of Marissa Hartley. Friends who are just as heartbroken and torn, and mothers who do nothing but disappoint you, no matter how much you try. This is the Epic Finale to Emma’s story and an emotional roller coaster of a read which promises to make you laugh, cry, gasp and maybe feel a little warm inside.
The answers to every question you had in this epic tale.

⭐The Carrero Heart / Beginning – Sophie Huntsberger found her way to a new family and a new life when she ran from the physical and sexual abuse at the hands of her father as a child. She has blossomed, healed in ways she never imagined she would or could within the safe arms of her adoptive family.
Arrick Carrero has been her rock, her best friend and her protector for years, but even he cannot get to the root of her growing emptiness. Sophie is lost, she’s reaching out for anything to fill the void and cure whatever ails her. Unable to understand why a life that is now so blessed does not complete her.
When Sophie comes to the realisation that maybe the cure has been within arms reach all along, it brings her world crumbling around her. Arrick cannot control the car crash of confusion that happens in his own mind when feelings become clear, hearts get bruised and things change to pull them apart.

⭐The Carrero Heart / The Journey – Sophie has been living her life for the past three months. She is finding her feet, her strength, and doing it in an Arry’less world, determined that she no longer needs him in any way shape or form. She’s heartbroken, but refuses to let him infiltrate her everyday life and take her from the goal she set herself. To succeed as something more and prove to not only everyone else, but herself, that she can do this.
Unfortunately for her, the wheels of fate, and the depth of how he feels about her, tug them straight back together, like magnets pulled by a stronger force that neither can fight. The heart is a funny thing, it can both hate and love, hurt and heal, at the same time.
Sometimes trusting someone the first time is so much easier than having to forgive them for breaking your heart. Something given so readily once upon a time is not so willing to peek out from the safe shadows. Sophie has to decide if she can let that one person back in, that she never thought would ever betray her.
