Omg, this as that book. The one we all kept trying to get our kindle page to turn...then realizing that we can't, because it's OVER. Thus we were all dying waiting for this book. Let me tell you ladies, it is well worth the wait.  Michelle de-freaking-livered!

I love what Michelle did with X and Anna. We get to see X in love, and struggling with dealing with he worthy? will he mess it up? will his past ruin everything?  And we get to see Anna. She get's to be the strength that Xavier needs. She gets to show her backbone with the wrestling storyline. She gets a whole lot just dumped on her lap, and she has to deal with it all by herself.

The struggle with these two is real. Anna struggling to deal with how Xavier is handling their relationship. This causes some really rocky times for these two...some real tough struggles to get through.  I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat anxious to see what Michelle was going to do to Anna and Xavier and how it was all going to play out. 

All I can say ladies.. worth. the . wait. 

When people have a cliff hanger of doom, and they wait a year for book 2, they want the book to be great. Michelle took that challenge and fully excelled. Wow. Xavier Cold needed his story told, we needed to hear his deep, dark past. This book gives you that. Anna and Xavier have a lot of road blocks trying to keep them apart, but X will fight to make sure that doesn't happen. This is probably the best conclusion to a book I've read in a very long time.


“You tired?” he asks. It doesn’t hit me until he mentions being tired on how exhausted I actually am. Tonight’s been stressful, and I’m sure, if I allow myself to close my eyes for even the briefest time, I’d fall asleep on the spot. But I refuse to let go of Xavier. When I thought they would lock him up and throw away the key, the opportunity to hold him against me anytime I wanted felt like it was quickly being ripped away. So, for now, I choose to stay here, in his presence, breathing him in as much as I possibly can. I tilt my head up and stare into his light-blue eyes. “I’m ready for bed, but I don’t want to sleep just yet.” For the first time since the chaos of the day began, Xavier smiles, but it’s not just any smile. It’s the heart-stopping one-sided smirk that drives me out of my ever-loving mind. “Have I turned my good girl naughty?” I give him my best wicked grin. “Afraid so. I can’t seem to get enough of you.” His large hands cradle my face. “Glad to hear it because I’m fucking addicted to you.” His lips press on mine, and I’m immediately lost in his kiss. The stubble on his face scratches my fingertips as I trace his jawline. “I need you.” A wicked gleam is in his eyes. “Is that so?” Xavier bends down and nips my lower lip. “You don’t know how much it turns me on when you ask for it. It takes every ounce of willpower in my body to stop myself from throwing you down on that bed and ravaging every inch of your body for my pleasure.” At the very thought of what that would be like, my pulse races under my skin. “What’s stopping you?” “You’re too sweet for that.” He leans in and runs his nose along my cheek, causing my entire body to quiver with anticipation. “And because you’re not ready to go there— to allow me to have full control— yet.” “How do you know?”
