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


“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?”

***ARC received from Michelle A. Valentine for honest review.***

This series is amazing. If you want a bada$$ wrestler that loves with his whole heart but thinks that he is undeserving to receive that kind of love back then you MUST meet Xavier.

This is the second book in the Hard Knocks series and I have to say that it is just as good as the first. Come to think of it, I don't think that I have read anything by
Michelle A. Valentine that I didn't like. She is a Phenomenal author.

This book starts off where
Phenomenal X left off. Xavier just finished beating the crap out of Rex the Assassin for running his mouth that X just couldn't hold back. This book will take your through the next couple of months of the life X's life. He will continue to remind himself that he does not deserve Anna's love, people from his past will come back to see him, and a shocking discovery will be told at the end that you won't expect.

You will go on a roller coaster ride of emotions where you will cry, will laugh, and you will be angry. If you are like me you can feel all of these emotions like this is happening to you. This is due to the amazing author.

So, would I recommend this series? You bet I would. Just like every other series that I have read by
Michelle A. Valentine.
