Publisher's Summary

He's come to kill me.
I'm a user and abuser of my own body. In the darkest hour I sold my soul to the devil and now I must pay the price. With his gun to my head I have no choice but to listen and obey, but I refuse to go down easily. Nothing is stronger than the will to survive. My instincts kicked into full gear the second he stepped into my motel room.
Except when I look at him I see my own heart staring back at me. A history tainted by blood.
I don't know his name, but I know he wants me. To save myself I'll sacrifice my sanity. My body. My soul. Something tells me the x-shaped scar that marks his eye is the only escape I have. He is Mr. X; the man who comes to claim my life. Can I save myself before he demands my heart?

Monsters are Real.

Where does Mr. X rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

First, I've just gotta say... WOW!!!!! Mr X is without a doubt my favorite audio book to date.


What did you like best about this story?

Eroticism at an extremely dark level.
I like the open ending where you can imagine what they each decide what to do.


Have you listened to any of Paul Brion’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first time I've had the pleasure.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

They made him a monster and left him to die..... soon they will all wish that he did....
Especially Her...........


Any additional comments?

The depravity, cruelty and sadistic abuse throughout this story had me constantly changing my mind about Mr X. He is decidedly dark, dangerous and wicked but oh my God he is so freaking delicious and decadent......

No Parent of the Year Awards Here

This is a dark story. Very explicit descriptions of violence and the S&M of BDSM. The story moves between present and past as it unfolds and draws you in from the beginning to the point of not being able to miss a single word.

I hung on every word and if I had an interruption I would rewind. For a 9.5 hour book to keep me interested...the story has to move at a steady pace, no filler, no irritating inner dialogue (or not much). Clarissa Wild delivered for me.

I'm not giving away any spoilers but I will tell you that X is in the family business of assassins and Jay is the daughter of a political family. The two families have a business arrangement, seduction takes place, disfigurement of X happens, X blames Jay for his disfigurement and seeks revenge. I can't think of a bad enough word or phrase to describe the parents of X and Jay.

Paul Brion gave a fabulous performance (narration) of this book. I loved the fact the he used a lower tone for Jay instead of trying to create a female voice.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes dark romances, mystery, suspense. Some people would say this isn't a romance book but dark romances are warped as is this one.

Absolutely worth the Credit and I will listen to this book over and over.
