The conclusion to the New York Times bestselling romance that began in Phenomenal X, about one woman’s pulse-pounding relationship with a notorious bad-boy wrestler.

“What’ll it be, Anna Cortez? Are you in, or are you out?”
One momentary loss of control has now ruined everything Xavier Cold had going for himself. With his world unraveling fast, he’s willing to do anything to save not only his job but his relationship with the only woman he’s ever loved.

Anna Cortez, still reeling from shock, tries desperately to save the man that’s consumed her heart, body and soul. She’ll have to dig deep and find courage she never knew she possessed to help Xavier fight demons from his past—a past that’s even more haunted than she ever imagined.

Dorsey’s  Review

3 Stars!!

I must admit I was a bit disappointed with the continuation of Xavier and Anna’s love story. The overall story was good, just not as great as I was hoping for. This picks up right where Phenomenal X left off, I found the multiple storylines a bit dramatic at times and there were just too many obstacles thrown in X and Anna’s way, along with too much self-doubt for both of them. X’s self-loathing was just plain sad and I missed the over confidentA cocky alpha he was in Phenomenal X!

“You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me—my angel—my everything, and I’ll never let you go again.”

Their inner dialogue drove me a bit crazy at times, but, I can say I was happy to see Anna reconcile with her family, Xavier finally finding peace, and Xavier & Anna finally finding their happily ever after…just wish there weren’t so many hard times thrown at them to find happiness!!
