It's official. I'm addicted and it only took the first few chapters of the first book. This is a really good story! The series follows Jennifer and Alex, two characters who are likeable, lovable, and very easy to understand. Jennifer is quick-witted and she isn’t afraid to speak her mind, all the while being a sophisticated woman who knows exactly what she wants. Alex is a humbled man who will surprise you with his sincerity. Suffice it is to say that I couldn’t put the series down until I finished it. Jennifer and her best friend Lisa have recently moved away from Maine (and Jennifer's abusive parents) to start their life in New York. However, Jennifer seems to be unable to find a job, even with her MBA. In a pinch and quickly running out of money, Jennifer applies for a secretarial position at Wenn Enterprises. This is when she meets the outspoken Ms. Blackwell. Who ends up being HILARIOUS! Jennifer's life takes an unexpected turn after she runs into a stranger on her worst day ever. The stranger ends up being the CEO of Wenn (Alex). Neither are prepared for their reaction to one another, and neither understands what their connection will hold in the days and months to come. Things move quickly and before she knows it, Jennifer is caught up in the tailspin that is Alex's life. However, Jennifer and Alex have skeletons in their closet as they pose as the perfect power couple to the outside world. It's just a matter of time though before the closet door is opened exposing the deep dark secrets that could either make or break their newly evolving relationship. Overall, this book oozes sexuality, tension, nutty characters, colorful characters, great dialogue and a delicious romance.

What did you love best about Annihilate Me (Vol. 1)?
I absolutely loved this book. It wasn't about getting right to the sex scenes, as it is with SO MANY OTHER BOOKS. In fact, the book offers only a powerful build-up to a relationship that will likely emerge even deeper, I'm hoping, in the next book. The adults are adults. There is nothing amateurish or childish here--there are NO hot messes--which I really enjoyed. In THIS genre, that was refreshing.
What did you like best about this story?
The dialogue is witty and real. You'll never forget Ms. Blackwell (LOVE her). Jennifer and Alex are trying to work things out between them, and you can't help but pull for them.
Have you listened to any of Reba Buhr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Reba Buhr is amazing. She gets all the nuances. She must be an actress, though I'm not sure, but she should be one! She certainly acts through this book. Her style and her characterizations are flawless.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Sizzling, romantic chick-lit for the smart set. Oh, and for those who love witty dialogue!
Any additional comments?
This book is a debut? Unbelievable. Very, very well written. Even better is that it's a full book--you don't get a just a few short chapters--you get a full novel. Totally engrossing. Can't wait for the next. Christina Ross has a new fan in me.
