It's ten years later, and we're still living separate lives. While I know she isn't comfortable with my lifestyle after everything she’s been through, I can't be without her anymore.

She's my wife.
She's my heartbeat.
She's my every breath.
She's my everything.

UPDATE:

Kudos to the author. She is very talented, I can not deny.

Curiosity killed the cat.
I did not resist and I ended up reading to see how the author would lead the outcome of the story.
I confess that in real life it would be impossible to overcome everything these two did to each other.
He's cheating her publicly and she having sex with other men over the years. All very dirty in my opinion.
She was not without sex, which is already a bonus in the stories we are accustomed to reading. Which won

Very disappointed

First, thank you Anne Mercier for giving us Falling Down and Blush. Loved the stories; however, Xander 2 is a bit of a let down. She wrote that she rewrote the epilogue from Xander 1 because it was too harsh, then wrote more than half of Xander 2 the same way. At the end of Xander 1, my heart bled for Tera. But in Xander 2 I began to dislike her. The couple showed no growth through the entire book. In fact, they spent very little time together in the actual story. We were robbe

I have waited for what feels like forever for this book but it was well worth the wait. It was the perfect conclusion to Xander and Tera’s emotional and heart-breaking story.
I devoured this book in one sitting and wasn’t putting it down for anyone. I liked part one of Xander’s story but I floved part two. I felt so many emotions whilst reading this book. The first half I found angsty and emotional but the second half had me cheesy grinning throughout. I liked that this story changed my feelings

Xander:part2, The Present

You will need to read Xander Part 1, The Past before you start part 2.


This book had my emotions up and down like a coaster. The perfect story for Xan and Tera. It explains so much. I laughed, I had tears. My heart was so full of happy for both of them. So worth the wait. I am so glad she didn’t rush and push herself because this story is perfect!
Anne has so many great lines and quotes my kindle is highlighted from beginning to end.
Heart melting, bring you to your knee

Ok so I feel like I have waited for ever for this book. And you want to know something?....well it was amazing...it was everything I needed from Xander and Tera’s book. I love this group of characters so much. You get wrapped up in them, you feel for them, you cry for and with them, you laugh with them and you blush a lot because of them because you damn they are sexy. So Thank You Anne for this beautifully amazing world you created for us.

Holy feelings batman

All the feels, all throughout the book. So many answers, so many more questions. Not gonna lie, I wanted to skate so many of these characters at different points in the book, but as usual, Anne has a plan and it works so well. Truly in awe of this whole story! I CANT WAIT for the next installment for the rockstar family. . . . and I’m still waiting to see if maggie and trace get a book of their own, or even separate if they don’t stay together. who knows?

Yes!!

I absolutely love how this story went. I have read the whole series and am infatuated with how she has written the whole family. I am excited to see what is up next for the next couple in this family and what kind of Xananagins they get up to! Keep them coming!

update !!!!!

I read it 🤔🤔🤔🤔you know what they say.....
Curiosity Killed the cat 😳😱

I think and this is my opinion.... the story line was charged ....too many people hated X and the author added some things.....like Tera was so traumatized brakes it off with X and then have a friend with benefits relationship with another guy then has few more one night stands 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔
I think this was to excuse X behavior because people hated how he was.....

Then she comes back like nothing happened....and they all ex

I just realized that this review was never published...ugh!!!!

So part 2 of Xander and Tera was amazing. We get more of Tera's point of view and what it took for her to get back to Xander and the love and struggle that she had to deal with and the pain of losing part of herself even after the attack and how she fought her way to come back to not only Xander but the guys in general because they are her her brothers. She did a lot of work and I know a lot of people won't be happy with some of the t

You could say I needed this book like the next breath.

Finishing book one I don't think I even had a good night's sleep with everything going around in my head.

Xander's story is finally told, and although I have followed this series it felt like a separate story until they all meet up with the rest of the band at the end.

This story could be read as a standalone, however, the last part in end chapters meeting up with the other guys and the things that are revealed to them about Xander and Tera'

Right now is about the time where I usually come up with an eloquent review about how much I adored this book and how much I love Xander and Tera and the rest of the rockstars, but I can’t do that. There are simply not words to write down that will describe just how very much my heart is smiling and singing right now. Xander and Tera are perfect. These rock stars are perfect. Happily ever after date real and true. If you don’t believe me pick up this series and read. True love, happiness, and th ...more

Intensely gripping story full of worry and angst, it held my attention throughout. At times I wanted to knock heads together, a lot of that being Tera. Despite her ordeal and as harrowing as it was why push away the person you love so deeply and then blame them if something goes wrong. I do feel she played on things just a bit and I felt so bad for Xander because no matter what his heart was with her, I felt someone should have told her how hard he wanted to be there for her and it wasn't his fa ...more

I've been waiting patiently for this book for over a year. And let me tell you this book was worth the wait. Its full of heart, emotion and a tearful journey. This isn't your typical rockstar book, it's packed full of emotion and I dare you not to cry. After the way book 1 ended, it was nice getting the backstory as to why Tera and Xander decided the fate of their relationshi

OMG..............FANFECKINGTASTIC

I have to start by saying I love every single book in this series, but this book has stolen a piece of my heart. I have a soft spot for Xander since we first meet him, but he now has to share that spot with Tera.
This book is packed with all the things you want to know, about this Rockstar.
I have laughed, I have got frustrated and I have cried, along with the characters in the book. The emotions that they all feel, jump right of the page and hit you, a few knocked
