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.




(Received ARC in exchange for our honest review.)

Xavier Cold starts this story in jail where book one leaves the reader. Xavier’s boss spins the story saying that it was all staged. Xavier has to take a three month hiatus and can not be in any city that they are filming. Also, Anna has to continue filming with the production. Anna has to convince Xavier everything will be alright. Anna doesn’t want Xavier to jeopardize his career over her.

Xavier and Anna have many ups and downs throughout the book. I really enjoyed the fast pace of the story. There were many twist that leaves you dumbfounded. Loved the chemistry between Xavier and Anna.
