hmmmm...Where to start....I guess if you haven't already guessed it, based on other reviews let me spell this out THIS BOOK WILL LEAVE YOU HANGING! Now, normally this wouldn't be a big deal, except Book 2 is not due to be released until later this year (yep, i checked the author's website!)
The first thing I loved about this book is it's a 2-sided story. As the listener, we get to see things from Ana's view and X's view. The Author did a fantastic job with transitioning from Ana to X.
Ana is a sweet, innocent & sheltered 21 yr old who has had enough of the confines of the world she knows. She runs away for a "fresh start".. While this is what we come to know about her, I have a feeling there is still more and maybe Ana might be just as damaged as X in a different sort of way!
X is an entertainment wrester, with a body, attitude and manor to match. X is also very broken...We get a taste of just how broken in this book, almost as though this is the least of X's demons and more is yet to come!
When fate puts Ana and X together, the journey that they take in a few weeks left me craving more. There are funny moments, there are heart pumping moments and sad moments. This is a hot, sexy, funny, sweet & sour moment type book. The author pulls you in from the start to finish and of course at the end you want to know what now?
I have never listened to a book narrated by Alexandria but She was amazing. She maintained a clear tone of voice, distinct voices for each character and good voice fluctuation. She nailed her conversational lines. She did not sound like she had a cold or breathing as she narrated. She is one I will have no hesitation listening to in other books.
I have loved Sean Crisden's narration from prior books and knew he would be great as always. He has a smooth voice, though not the best female voice but close enough. His narration always takes me where i need to go without fail.
This is not an MMA book, think more like WWE....
The bottom line: If you want the roller coaster relationship, the amazing chemistry and a book that will reel you in from start to finish, then THIS IS IT! Ana sweets will have un in aww.... and X is definitely gonna give it to ya!

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!

OMG, I am speechless. I love it, it's awesome but I just finished this book saying "No, No, No, you can't end the book like that." Michelle does it again.
Anna has been sheltered all of her life by her father. 'You can't do that' and 'you can't do this', is what she always hears from her father. One day she has enough and moves to live with her aunt and cousin in Detroit. Detroit is the place she was wants to make her dreams a reality.
Detroit is where Xander (Phenomenal X) grow up with his mum and gran. His life wasn't great, his gran was evil but that's normal to him. He leaves and hasn't be back for years. First trip home, he meets Anna on the plane. He just keeps popping up in her life and then he offers her a job she can't turn down.
Living out of a suitcase is hard!! Can Anna cope with that? Can Anna and Xander remain friends?
Read the book to see. I would recommend this book.
Michelle, Please tell me there are more books in this series about X and Anna.

Couldn't get into this one. Was hoping for another Katy Evans 'Real' series type thing but it is nowhere near the Mark unfortunately. Have returned this one.
Who was your favorite character and why?
He holds a little more of the relationship and pretty much figures Anna rather quickly. I picture Xavier more of a main character then Anna since his story really does over power her and makes you feel as he has more to lose then she does
Any additional comments?
The ending was quite intense like running into a brick wall and the tense feeling won't stop until you figure out you need the next book
Honestly can't hate this book
