Description:

From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside–so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat.

No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

Entwined by our secrets, we tried to defy the odds. We made our own rules and surrendered completely to the exquisite power of possession…

Sandy’s Review:

Ok I have to say it, I was not impressed.  A lot of nothing happened.  The books picks up right where they left off with Eva telling Gideon that she knows what he did to Nathan and the police aren’t considering him a suspect anymore.  They still have to pretend to not be together so they don’t insult the police.  Gideon is still obsessed with Eva and knows her every move.  They still have kinky sex when they can sneak away together.  They did eventually get married but no one can know. It just seemed like a filler book, she didn’t resolve anything with Gideon, his nightmares, his family, or with a crazy reporter that is now stalking him.  Hopefully the next book comes out soon and starts to tie up some loose ends.

Reflected in You By Sylvia Day

Description:

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…

Sandy’s Review:
Reflected in You starts right where Bared to You left off.  Gideon and Eva are still crazy about each other and also driving each other crazy over their insecurities.  This books digs a little deeper when it comes to Gideons demons.  Eva starts to realize why Gideon is so closed off and has no close relationships as the people who were closest to him were the ones that hurt him the most.  This book also introduces a new character Brett Kline which gives Gideon a taste of his own medicine and a view of who Eva use to be.   At times I understood where Eva was coming from when she questioned him about his behavior but once the book was done it all made sense and I loved Gideon more for it. There’s lots more sex (of course), drama, and murder… Hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did.

Happy reading…

Bared To You By Sylvia Day

Description:

Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness…

He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…

Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires.The bonds of his love transformed me, even as i prayed that the torment of our pasts didn’t tear us apart…

Sandy’s Review:
Bared to you is the first book in the Crossfire Series, I have read it numerous times and it still gets my heart racing. I read this book right after 50 Shades Of Grey so it gave me the smut I was looking for.  Gideon Cross is the essence of everything that is sexy male; tall, dark hair, piercing blue eyes, muscular, rich, and determined.  Eva Tramell is everything you would expect Gideon to want in a female; Blonde, not too tall, athletic figure, grey eyes, socialite status, and doesn’t take shit from him.

Some of the issues I do have with the book is that everything happens with in the span of 2 or 3 weeks.  I know you can feel lust for someone in that time frame but love is questionable.  I do not believe that two people would see a couples counselor after 1 week together, it seems extreme.  They both have baggage they need to work on so they can trust each other but I don’t see that leap.  I also don’t see Eva telling Gideon she was raped as a child so soon in the relationship.

Other than the minor issue of instant love, I totally loved the book and its focus on abuse victims and how they can become survivors.  Eva is rational when it comes to what she can and cannot handle and what her triggers are that will make her spiral into bad places.  Gideon on the other hand is not dealing with his issues in a healthy way until Eva confronts him on it. I love that Eva has her roommate Cary for a sounding board and a reality check when she needs it. This book has A LOT of sex, trust issues, and insecurities between both of the main characters so be prepared to be frustrated in numerous ways. 🙂

Bared to You may seem to end a bit abruptly but everything will pick right up in the next book Reflected into You.
