DESCRIPTION: The business of love is dangerous.

For Jennifer Kent, a recent MBA graduate who has been searching for work in Manhattan for four long months, time and money are running out. If she doesn't find work soon, she'll need to return to her native Maine, where the job situation is even more bleak.

And where her abusive parents lie in wait.

But when an unorthodox arrangement is proposed, Jennifer decides to take it. She agrees to be the "girlfriend" of Alexander Wenn, the reluctant, billionaire CEO of Wenn Enterprises, who is so devastatingly good looking, he needs a beautiful woman like Jennifer on his arm to "keep the wolves at bay."

In this case, the wolves are other women, all of whom vie for his attention so aggressively, they keep him from focusing on business at the exclusive events he must attend. It's there that deals are cut. What they want is his money and his power. Damaged by a past event, the only thing Alex wants to do is focus on work. And to forget the past.

But can Jennifer deny their white-hot chemistry?

As she's swept into this glittering otherworld of society and big business, she finds herself struggling to keep from falling for Alex, an almost impossible feat she nevertheless must meet.

Armed with her MBA, Jennifer Kent is a strong woman who knows about business. But what she doesn't know is what could destroy her--the business of protecting her own heart.

And maybe her own life.

    Annihilate Me has a gripping, suspenseful story and vivid characters. I am speechless after reading this! So much depth and background in this story. You really get a feel for the characters. I can't wait to continue the journey. SO! WARNING! Christina Ross really knows how to keep readers on the edge of their seats with drama and cliff-hangers, wondering what will happen next. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down... Characters: I love the female lead, Jennifer Kent. Although Jennifer hasn't had it easy in life, she keeps getting up and going on, determined to make it in NYC. Then Alex offers her an executive level salary in exchange for an unusual arrangement, that Jennifer poses as his girlfriend. Even though Alex is a powerful billionaire used to getting his way, and the chemistry between them is intense from the moment they meet, Jennifer stands up to him. I liked that the female and male leads are more balanced, instead of the man mostly domineering and the woman whiny, messed up, or a pushover like in other billionaire romances. Jennifer has a scathing sense of humor and doesn't take disrespect from anyone, including Alex. She has the guts and brains to deal with the wealthy and powerful while holding her own. The supporting cast of characters were outstanding, especially Ms. Blackwell....this womAn needs her own book STAT!! Her dialogue in particular is some of the best I've read...Funny, creative, and heartwarming! Another aspect of the book that I enjoyed is how Jennifer's sense of humor comes out in her dialogue with some of the more minor characters. Ross brings characters to life with a few snappy sentences of dialogue. I laughed out loud more than a few times reading this book. On to Volume 2!!!
