Where I got it: From Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review
THE SENSUAL SAGA OF EVA AND GIDEON CONTINUES in the hotly anticipated follow-up to BARED TO YOU…the New York Times bestselling novel of “EROTIC ROMANCE THAT SHOULD NOT BE MISSED.”— Romance Novel News
Gideon Cross. As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn't stay away. I didn't want to. He was my addiction... my every desire... mine.
My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful... except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity.
We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession...
We all know that despite the sketchy writing and over-use of the “inner goddess,” I blazed through the Fifty Shades trilogy in no time at all. So when I found Bared to You on Amazon as a recommended read, I couldn’t pass it up. And I loved Bared to You. It was steamy, it was dramatic, it was a little jacked in the head… Perfection.
Needless to say, I was absolutely thrilled to get an early look at Reflected in You, which is the second book in the Crossfire trilogy. Gideon and Eva have decided to give their relationship a shot, despite the fact that they’re both incredibly damaged, and they’ve got more issues than your local newspaper. They are ensnared in a passionate relationship that won’t let go, even if letting go might be better for both of them in the long run. It’s pretty awesome.
Of course, nothing comes easily for this couple, and their relationship is fraught with drama, suspicion, and trust issues bigger than California, but they keep trying to work through it. From a reader perspective, I just wanted to scream at points in the book, because if they would just talk to each other, they might have an easier time of things, but I also understand the compulsion not to. It’s kind of conflicting. But there’s plenty going on to keep the reader interested, and while I missed the steam of Bared to You in this installment, I definitely loved learning more about Gideon and Eva.
