Publisher's Summary

From the mean streets of Detroit rises the newest superstar of professional wrestling, Xavier Cold, better known as Phenomenal X. His muscular physique makes men cower before him and women lose their minds with desire. Anna Cortez is fresh out of college and naïve to the harsh realities of the real world. Tired of living under the thumb of her conservative family, she defies them when she accepts a job as the assistant to wrestling's most notorious bad boy. Phenomenal X has an animalistic nature that even good girl Anna finds hard to resist. Forced to share a bed in a sold-out hotel, lines blur between them, and they quickly learn that one lustful night changes everything. Neither one of them will ever be the same. Contains mature themes.

Awesome Book!

I am so pissed right now! I cannot believe the second book isn't out... What a freaking cliffhanger! Urgh!!!! I hate listening to an awesome book that has me so involved then Whamp!!! Cliffhanger....

And the Cliffhanger in this one... OMG!!! Seriously.... Second book.... Instant Download!!!

X is superstar wrestler from extremely bad origins... but he meets the sweetness thing on an airplane and their romance/friendship start from there. I totally enjoyed all the sweet moments between these too... I am actually glad they moved from friends to serious so quickly... it kept the story going.... I feel like it would have start dragging if they angst played out for too long... But the ending...OMG! I can not believe the story just ended like that... Seriously!!!!

Good Narration... I am not one for dual narration...but I was still worth a good listen.

Good credit or sale....maybe not a buy!

Right from the start this listen captured my imagination while Xavier captured my heart…. sitting in Economy aboard a plane that will hopefully whisk her away from overbearing religious parents and an unwanted marriage, shy timid Anna locks eyes with a stunning, sexy, drool-worthy man as he prepares to sit in First Class. She doesn't know it but he's a famous Wrestler and he's about to rock her world.

Although he says he's the villain in this story Xavier comes across as protective, sweet, thoughtful, kind and loving to Anna and when their off the charts sizzling chemistry moves them from the 'friends' category into the 'lovers' category then things really heat up with jealousy and possessiveness also joining his list of traits. He's damaged and haunted by his past and terrified of losing his beautiful innocent Anna and will do anything to stop that from happening…… but the one he should fear most is himself.

Worth a credit? Oh YES, what an awesome sexy start to a new series that will be an auto download for me but hopefully they won't have quite such an epic cliffhanger as this one did which left me pulling my hair out while screaming "NO NO NO OMG NO NO NO !!!"
