She belongs with him. She just doesn't know it...yet.
A single mother working two jobs with no time for drama, Brittany Jones has given up hope of ever being happy. A romantic relationship would only complicate things. When a pair of wide shoulders and a smile that could melt any girl's determined heart—not to mention her panties—hires on to renovate the office where she works, Brittany might just have to allow for a little play time with Mr. X.
Xavier Martin is on his way back to a small town with an even smaller reputation. It's been a rough day, but he has one last job to complete before heading off to a bachelor party. That is, until he walks through the door and sees a familiar pair of emerald eyes staring back at him. Manicured girls like her don't go out with unpolished guys like him, but he's willing to put up a fight for a chance to make her his.

3 stars for MR. X.
When Xavier Martin shows up for a construction job, he's flabbergasted to see his high school crush Brittany Jones. Xavier has never stopped thinking about the sexy spitfire, and now that he's seen her again, there's no way in hell he's going to let her go. And when he sees her again at a strip club? Xavier goes insane thinking of any other guy drooling over his woman. But will Brittany accept him back in her life, especially when he disapproves of her job?
MR. X is a standalone novel by Ms. Lae, and only her second book. I think it was just an okay read. The writing was decent (though stifled at times), and the characters were okay (though not particularly lovable). It just didn't have any ZING to it, despite the hot sex scenes. Xavier was kind of a stalker once he reconnected with Brittany, and she was pretty much a bitch the entire book. They had good chemistry in the sack, but not much of anything outside of that.
And then there was the fire drama...it genuinely didn't seem to have a point other than to try and make Xavier look like a badass (it didn't). That whole scene was eye roll inducing and really put a bad taste in my mouth for the entire read.
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
