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?

"Monsters are Real."
First, I've just gotta say... WOW!!!!! Mr X is without a doubt my favorite audio book to date.
Eroticism at an extremely dark level.
I like the open ending where you can imagine what they each decide what to do.
This is the first time I've had the pleasure.
They made him a monster and left him to die..... soon they will all wish that he did....
The depravity, cruelty and sadistic abuse throughout this story had me constantly changing my mind about Mr X. He is decidedly dark, dangerous and wicked but oh my God he is so freaking delicious and decadent......
"No Parent of the Year Awards Here"
This is a dark story. Very explicit descriptions of violence and the S&M of BDSM. The story moves between present and past as it unfolds and draws you in from the beginning to the point of not being able to miss a single word.
I hung on every word and if I had an interruption I would rewind. For a 9.5 hour book to keep me interested...the story has to move at a steady pace, no filler, no irritating inner dialogue (or not much). Clarissa Wild delivered for me.
I'm not giving away any spoilers but I will tell you that X is in the family business of assassins and Jay is the daughter of a political family. The two families have a business arrangement, seduction takes place, disfigurement of X happens, X blames Jay for his disfigurement and seeks revenge. I can't think of a bad enough word or phrase to describe the parents of X and Jay.
Paul Brion gave a fabulous performance (narration) of this book. I loved the fact the he used a lower tone for Jay instead of trying to create a female voice.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes dark romances, mystery, suspense. Some people would say this isn't a romance book but dark romances are warped as is this one.
Absolutely worth the Credit and I will listen to this book over and over.
"Wow! Just Wow!"
Such a dark story. Not at all what I expected. Monster turned human? Emotionless to love? Games, killing, hits, survival, death, freedom. X and J are both very damaged and bent on furthering damaging each other. Somehow in the process the save each other. Who is the root of the problem? Can you guess? The last few chapters took my breath away, a sense of panic filling me. Why? Love where love shouldn't be. Freedom.
This was my first Clarissa Wild book and listening to it in Audio added to the tension and mystery, fear and a sliver of hope. I loved it!
"Freedom At What Price"
I felt like I needed and eXorcism after listening to this book -- whew! Good story, so many bad people, sex that may or may not have been consensual with some BDSM, and a whole lot of killing and blood. Even with all the darkness, this story kept me captivated. There were a couple of times where the story dragged a little but overall it kept me interested in listening to the end. This is my first book by Clarissa Wild and I'm sure it won't be my last. Paul Brion did an okay job as the narrator for Mr. X and the other male characters but there was no differentiation for Jay's character so I had to really pay attention to know when she was speaking.
"Love for Mr. X!"
Fierce, Hot Hitman
This is another winner by author Clarissa Wild. I love her books! Mr. X is intimidating and no-nonsense, yet you can't help but see something good in him. He'd scare the living daylights out of me!
"Dark S/M and Little Confusing in the Beginning"
4.5 Stars - It was a good dark read, but not SO good that I'd listen to it more than once. It's credit worthy. It was confusing at first. The book is similar to "King" by T.M. Frazier; it has the same plot. Girl wakes up in the hospital with no memory of the abuse from her dad who's campaigning for governor. For those who have read the book "King" the only difference is the hero / lover is a hit man instead of a biker & the heroine' s abuser is her father instead of an ex boyfriend. Overall it's still a good read.
This is a dark S/M read (Not as dark as Pepper Winters books) but you'll need to listen to it with an open mind. Could be offensive to those who are sensitive to sadism & degradation.
"I enjoyed listening to this book!"
My favorite audiobook
To me this whole story is captivating. I enjoyed reading it and now listening to it again was even better. I think this would be an outstanding movie.
This is my first audiobook with Paul narrating but I think he did a wonderful job. I enjoyed listening to him read to me.
I have never thought of this so as of right now I don't have anything.
Mr X is a splendid read. I highly recommend it.
"Better than 50 Shades of Gray..."
People whose are comfortable with sex scenes featuring humiliation, breath-play, biting and hitting hard enough to draw blood, and death threats. Granted, both characters are deeply damaged. The eventual explanations for their flaws are fairly reasonable, and by the end I wanted them to be together. I expected mystery, suspense, and kinky romance. The book delivers that, but the "romance" was too hateful and abusive for my tastes.
Maybe, if I were sure the "romance" wouldn't have so much mutual hatred.
It was okay, just not convincing. Some of the heroine's more peevish lines were like fingernails on a chalkboard.
For all the flaws, this author is much better at her craft than E. L. James. The plot and sub-plots, characters, and dialogue were better than 50 Shades. Furthermore, I'm pretty sure Ms. Wild didn't steal her characters from a YA vampire romance, so kudos for originality!
I loved the characters!! the storytelling was good and the storyline was amazing! it was riveting and dark but loving and twisted . I recommend you to read this book.
This book is a dark erotic bdsm book
Let me say, this is a good book, but I have to say as a warning this is a dark erotic bdsm with more pain and bondage, some will say this is more along the lines of Stockholm syndrome. Sorry, not my kind of book.
Azazel or most know him as Mr X. has a past but is living for the revenge of his future and it all start with one girl. He cannot control the urge to make her bleed, feel the pain and beg for more and she will. He was born and raised to be a hit man, but when his family is hired to watch her family everything changes. She inevitably causes a time line of the creation from Azazel to Mr. X.
Jay has amnesia, she does what she can on the streets to stay alive and if selling her body or working a pole helps get the job done then so be it, besides it's only a body. But when one night a job doesn't go as planned, she has a run in with a past and he is pissed. When the pieces come together, she learns that nothing is what it seems and you can trust no one.
