Michelle A. Valentine-Phenomenal X (Hard Knocks #1)

Adult Romance-18+

Good Girl. Notorious Bad-Boy. One Phenomenal Love.

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 naive 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.

One night forced to share a bed in a sold-out hotel, lines blur between them and they quickly learn that one lustful night changes everything and neither one of them will ever be the same.

All the "buzz" about this book was enough to get me to pick it up and give it a try. And it took me 2 tries to get into it, at first I just wasn't buying into the story. It all seemed to "standard" and honestly I kept comparing him to Remy. But about two-thirds of the way in I really started to get in to the characters. It's not the best story I have ever read, I didn't get obsessed with the characters, or emotionally attached. But I liked the story in the end, and now that I have a cliff-hanger ending, I have to read the next one to find out what happens next....
