Mr. X is ready for you, but are you ready for him?


USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Clarissa Wild brings you Mr. X, a dark Romance thriller, which is a stand alone without cliffhanger.

*Author Note: This is not your average romance story. Some people will kill for love.*

He's come to kill me.

I'm a user and abuser of my own body. In the darkest hour I sold my soul to the devil and now I must pay the price. With his gun to my head I have no choice but to listen and obey, but I refuse to go down easily. Nothing is stronger than the will to survive. My instincts kicked into full gear the second he stepped into my motel room.

Except when I look at him I see my own heart staring back at me. A history tainted by blood.

I don't know his name, but I know he wants me. To save myself I'll sacrifice my sanity. My body. My soul. Something tells me the x-shaped scar that marks his eye is the only escape I have. He is Mr. X; the man who comes to claim my life. Can I save myself before he demands my heart?

WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, strong language, drugs and alcohol, and graphic violence.

No Cliffhanger. Complete at 90800 words. Stand Alone.

REVIEWS

"It's dark, raw, dirty, and I LOVED IT!" - Author Savannah Stewart

"I found myself questioning who the real monsters are here and wondering if anyone was going to make it through this journey into hell with their sanity intact, or what was left of it in the end of this story of truly dark and vicious cruelty, and I found myself shocked at times upon learning where it came from and wondering if there were going to be any survivors at all!" - Goodreads Review

"This is a true work of art in the form of novel." - Goodreads Review

"If you like dark romance then this book is for you. You won't be disappointed in it. - Goodreads Review

    Mr. X is a clear departure from Clarissa Wild¿s previous books.

    Mr. X is a clear departure from Clarissa Wild’s previous books. This is a dark romance full of mystery and suspense that will keep you on your toes. She had me enthralled by the storyline right off the bat and kept me guessing until the very last page. Both Jay and X are unlike any character she’s written before and their story will demand your attention. From the moment X enters the scene, up until the last page, I found myself trying to wrap my head around this complicated and twisted man. As pieces of his story start to fall into place, he managed to captivate me even more. I found X to be an incredibly unique character and I’m in awe (and a little scared) of the mind that dreamed him up. 




    This storyline had my head spinning. Clarissa knows how to keep a reader on edge and only reveal enough of the truth to satisfy the moment and keep you wanting more. X’s story is gritty and raw and rough. The power dynamic between X and Jay really fueled the story, keeping emotions high and the fire between them scorching. I enjoyed every broken, blood-stained moment of this book. I loved watching X and Jay’s story unfold and was dying to piece together their pasts. If you like a journey with some darkness, damaged characters, and thrilling stories packed with mystery and suspense then Mr. X is worth the one-click. Mr. X will leave your mind haunted by this fabulous story.

    WOW!  I mean really WOW!
    So much more of everything, Dark, Sensual, Erotic, with lots of pain and truth.  The twists and turns in this book will make your
    head spin in a good way.  And Oh My God, the ending was just WOW!  When you have a truly screwed up childhood, you truly
    become screwed up in your way of thinking.  But even those that don’t have a bad one still have some forms of depravity in their
    mind.  Things we are taught to be bad can be a turn on.  You may find reading this will bring some of that out in you whether you
    will admit to it or not.  This is a true work of art in the form of novel.  I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for
    an honest review.

    I have never read a Dark Erotic Book before.  I was invited to and attended an online party for the authors third book in one
     of her series she had just released.  There was also a blub posed for Mr. X., one of Clarissa’s stand alone novels.  I read some
     reviews and I was curious so I decided to give it a try.  Wow, they aren’t kidding when they call it dark.  The author steps you in first
     to slowly get your feet wet.  You wade in slowly then, pow, right down the rabbit hole you go.  This really is a dark and erotic romance.
      Romance?  Well yeah.  Both of the main characters are really from some screwed up families..Their upbringing was not normal at all
    .  The chosen professions, not really chosen but, anyway…..different.  The Mr. X is trying to keep Jay alive from the people that wan
    t her dead.  She thinks he is just holding her prisoner for his kinky sex.  This story does really mess with your mind and you try to figure
     out who is really the enemy.  What the feeling really are.  I do like the authors writing style.  I’m what you call a visual reader and she
     kept me reading.  Scene after scene.  I couldn’t put the book down.  Thank you Clarissa for letting me into this world.   It was amazing
     that you can put words beautifully together for such dark erotica.   I will be reading your Delirious Series next.

    First I'd like to say that I really liked the way this story is

    First I'd like to say that I really liked the way this story is told from both P.O.V. This really helps especially when they both have a different memory, or lack of one from the past. Some times it's hard to know who the victim, victims or no victims at all are.
    I found myself questioning who the real monsters are here and wondering if anyone was going to make it through this journey into hell with their sanity intact, or what was left of it in the end of this story of truly dark and vicious cruelty, and I found myself shocked at times upon learning where it came from and wondering if there were going to be any survivors at all!
    Every time I thought I had a handle on what was going on and why, another twist and/or another piece of the puzzle presented itself until I found myself in a Love/Hate relationship with Mr. X, who in turn, was forced himself to re-evaluate the raw rage, anger, pain and white hot hate that drove him through the years to now exact his revenge.
    Just how much torture, humiliation, and repeated assault on body and mind can a person stand? Jay is about to find out as she is now his prisoner complete with shackles and chains. He wants her to suffer and die and she has no earthly idea why. Just one thing niggles at the back of her mind....." why is he so familiar?" Will he really kill his little bird?

    I hate reading reviews that give away the story line, but since the story is such an integral part of the reading experience, it's hard to talk about one without exposing the other, so I'll do the best that I can.

    A dark and unexpected journey from start to finish, Mr.X will challenge everything you thought you knew about human nature.

    By slowly breaking down and rebuilding her characters, Clarissa Wild presents readers with a story that is as dramatic and disturbing as it is emotional.

    A well written and suspenseful tale with complex characters, that live in an even more intricately crafted world, Mr. X is a unique erotic romance that impacted my emotions, challenged my thought process and left me craving more stories from Clarissa in this genre.

    Jay has never been a good girl. Even when she was young she's pushed the limits; constantly rebelling against a father that was always disappointed with her. Yes, she's done a lot of messed up stuff in her life, but she still can't figure out what led to this stranger pointing a gun at her and promising to kill her. The man who asks to be called Mr. X.

    A stranger. The fact that she doesn't remember him only infuriates X more. He has spent years waiting to get his revenge and now the time is here. But he can't pull that trigger. Not yet, anyway. No, he'll spend some time extracting a little more revenge from her delectable body.

    So fair warning, this is a dark erotic novel. There is nothing sweet about Jay and X together. No not sweet at all, but delicious none the less. Their "relationship," if you want to call it that, is completely f'd up. X is such a mystery from start to finish of the story. The author throws you into the deep end right at the start, showing us just how gruesome he can be. I immediately got sucked in and wanted to delve into his mind, find out why he is the way he is. There is obviously a lot of pain buried in that mind and I wanted to dig it out.

    Jay has lived her life as if there is no tomorrow, without a care in the world for the consequences of her actions. But now that she is truly faced with no tomorrow, she isn't ready to die just yet. But even if she makes it out with her body still intact, I was afraid she completely lose her soul to X. There is a lot of mystery to these characters back story and as each little piece unravels so do you. This journey was rough and edgy and raw but damn I loved every second of it! The ending was pretty perfect, however I NEED more! More X please! Just a tiny little additional chapter to give me a glimpse into the future.

    This is the first book of Clarissa's that I have read and it made me an instant fan! I will definitely be checking out her other novels.

    Wendy Syposs Litz-Review of Mr.X

    Just wanted to say I loved this book! It certainly is not your average love story,or for those who dont read any Erotica. It is pretty dark! I loved it because it held the essence of a forever type of love.X has known Jay most of her life,he was a boy when they first met. He and his parents were hired to do a job,his job was to watch Jay. He became involved with her and it almost cost him his life. Years later,they are together again. She is more or less his captive,and you are led to believe he hates her.There is a fine line between love and hate.
    The author,Clarissa Wild, takes us on THE WILDEST RIDE! The 4 M's prevail: Murder,Mayham,Mystery,and Misery. Oh! Almost forgot the love between X and Jay! "IF YOU LOVE SOMETHING ENOUGH,LET IT FREE. IF IT DOESNT RETURN IT WAS NEVER YOURS TO BEGIN WITH"

    Desire and Darkness. Is it possible to want someone who holds you captive? His lips are familiar and his taste is toxic. How can her body defy her this much while her head is trying to convince her she is only playing the game to stay alive.

    Revenge, redemption, hatred and lust. Mr. X is coming for you. You only hope is that the kill will be quick and painless. Unfortunately that is not his game. This man is an alpha man all wrapped up in tattoos and suits. His next target, a little bird named Jay. His hate for her drives him and has made him who he is. His life was never his own nor was hers. Jay has no idea why Mr. X has kept her alive but she will do whatever it takes to stay alive including submitting to the devil himself.

    Nothing in this book as what it seems. Strap in ladies and gents because you are in for one hell of a roller coaster ride. Don't ever underestimate the emotions of love and hate. Mixed together its a deadly combination. A feeling so fierce it can lead you straight into temptation and the arms of a demon.

    This is a standalone roller coaster ride. Ms. Wild is a genius. Bravo! This is a very erotic dark book that may not be suitable for the "romantic" reader. Yes there is love but its dangerous and edgy. Enter at your own risk of falling in love with a monster.

    Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ Stars

    Clarissa Wild's Mr. X is an erotic tale of the consequences of the actions one takes.  Innocent or not for every action that is taken there is an equal reaction and it is not always the one that we want.  Mr. X is a result of his choices and the reactions that he takes because of those choices.  His life was set, all he had to do was follow the instructions he had been given. Jay was the spoiled daughter of a powerful man.  She had always been able to do whatever she wanted to do and to have anything she wanted.  But Jay made choices that had consequences that she did not expect.  Her life should have been easy with no problems. ~TSRBR
     
    Hero –Mr. X: 4 stars
    Heroine –Jay: 4 stars
    Steam: 4 stars 
    Plot: 4 stars 
    Cliffhanger: No

    Would I recommend this book: Yes! This is a dark twisted story of revenge, death and lust filled obsession.  Two lost souls that have lost everything but need each other to stay alive. Pasts will be revisited and resolution of injustices will be sought. 

    Would I read other books by this author: Yes!  Ms. Wild is a talented writer that uses words to paint emotions.  She is a true artist and I look forward to reading her next literary adventure.

    I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Rea

    I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review. Mr. X is a dark story that is filled with pain, hatred, deceit, lust, revenge and yes love. Jay works in the local strip club. It is what she has chosen, drugs and addiction will lead you down a dangerous path and sometimes you get a second chance. But when the second chance is Mr. X, do you really think it is better? Mr. Z has been sent to kill her by a person who has taken a hit out on her. Mr. X works for the organization and killing is what they do. While Mr. X loves the thrill of the kill, listening to their screams and begging him not to kill them, to him it is almost a pleasurable as sex itself. So when he get s to Jay, he takes her captive to keep others in the organization from killing her. Now they are hiding because he is hunted as well as she is. Jay has a plan, get Mr. X to think she has accepted his protection until the time is right for her to escape. Their past will surprise you but it will help you understand why Mr. X is the way he is. When the time comes, will she be able to leave him? Can Mr. X ever let her go? What will she do when she finds out who put the hit on her?
    This is a dark read and if you like that kind of story, then please read this one, it is worth it. I have read many stories from Clarissa Wild and I love her writing style and I loved this one too.
