Xavier Cold’s back and as hot as ever!!
It seemed like I waited forever for my next fix of Phenomenal X and when it finally arrived on my Kindle I was a little scared to make a start. After the massive Cliffhanger of book one I was worried that book 2 wouldn’t be as good but I shouldn’t have worried of course Michelle wouldn’t diasappoint us all.
This book is more about Xavier and his background before he started wrestling, we finally get the answers to the multitude of questions that Anna posed in book one as we watch him fight the demons of his past head on.

An amazing sequel to Phenomenal X, just when  you think you cant love Xavier anymore you fall in love with the huge muscly HOT male all over again ! This book lets you see into the Xavier devastating cruel childhood and makes you root for him right from the beginning. After seeing what he has been through makes you understand all his actions and you cant help but forgive him for all he does !  After landing himself in jail for taking things to far in the ring with Rex Xavier realises he could of just lost Anna just as he has found her, its not just Anna he could lose but has he just lost his career as well ?? Xavier thinks he is being given a second chance when he is released from jail but its not all it seems to be, he is being suspended from Tension and that's just the beginning of the downward spiral of what's to come. Can and IS Anna strong enough to cope in his world that she knows nothing about ? The world and upbringing she has escaped from is so far from Xaviers that he knows he has to do everything in his power to keep her safe from his past which is coming back to haunt him as he returns to his childhood home.

Loved this romantic story that had you fighting for X and Anna's relation, they both have some much to deal with and know that if they can be strong for each other they may just make it but their relationship is being tested to the max !! Can they save each other ?
This book is full of danger, suspense, twists and turns and one very hot alpha male with plenty of steamy sex scenes that keep this book HOT ! A must read that you wont be able to put down !

Xavier is back with a bang, this it the next part of his and Anna’s story and you won’t be disappointed. This book was intense, passionate and raw. They have a strong connection but due to outside influences and their own insecurities can they ever get their HEA.

Xavier is still building up walls and feels that he doesn’t deserve Anna but what he failed to realize was she is the calm to his storm, light to his dark and fire to his Ice. After recent events Xavier finds himself being thrown back to his past and he needs to find a way to face his demons if he is ever to move on and have a future.

Anna is the one person who understands where Xavier is at, she knows his past was hard but she isn’t running from him she is running to him. Thrown into a life she knows nothing about she must fight for her own happiness. She believes in Xavier, she just needs him to believe in himself.

Review by Naomi Connor

That was phenomenal, what an amazing ending to this beautiful romance. 
Xavier Cole picks up exactly where phenomenal X pushed us off a cliff and kept us hanging on for dear life. 

The excruciating wait was well worth it. 
SEXY TALL PANTY MELTING DIRTY TALING alpha male Xavier is back trying to fight the demons and darkness from this past that threatens to steal and destroy the light and shining hope he has found in Anna. His journey is undeniably heartbreaking, you will root for him, shout when he falls to get back up and keep fighting. One thing for sure X will do just about anything to keep is Anna safe including giving her up. 

Anna Sweets, beautiful, kind, a beacon of goodness and light. She faces new and unexpected challenges that threatens to tear her andXavier apart but this little cookie is a fighter and she will fight to the bitter end to protect and keep her man. 
Her path from sheltered church girl to mature adult has been a turbulent one but she has handled everything thrown her way with grace and an optimistic attitude. I really like her character, she has a backbone she is not afraid to stand up for what she believes in. I wish more people in real life has her qualities. The world would be a much nicer place.     

The plot was a simple and classic one that is always a sure winner good vs evil and love concurring all.  
Rex and Deena are out to destroy X and Anna at all cost, jealousy ill will and spite are on the constant attack seeking to destroy the bond that God has put together. 
X has the fight of his life against the evils of the past. 
Will he be strong enough to overcome or will he surcome once more to a life of crime and violence driven by the hanious things he went through as a child. 
His boiling temper has landed him in big trouble and seems to be a recurring argument point in his and Anna's relationship will it be the straw that broke the camels back or can he learn to keep his temper in check?!? 
I liked the discovery at the end gruesome as it was i believed it truly gave X some much needed closure. 

How could I not have been swept away it's a book written by Michelle Valentine after all. It's always a pleasure reading her work she has a effortless flow and a gentle pace intertwined with depth and meaning. That is sure to leave you with a sense of hope, a smile, or just a better mood. Michelle's writing is the embodiment of uplifting. 

Xavier Cold is the highly anticipated conclusion to Anna and Xavier's love story that began in the mouth watering Phenomenal X. The story is told in duel first person PoV with the occasional flash back to Xavier's past, giving us an deeper understating of the things he endured and how he ended up the man he is today. 
Overall the story is one of love, forgiveness, togetherness, family, never giving up, hope, redemption and  love conquering all. 
This book is a real page turner that kept me up until I reached the very end. 
Highly recommended!
