“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…”
I didn’t just like this book, I loved it. If you enjoyed Bared to You then you will definitely love Reflected in You. This book picks up right where the first book left off.
I found this book to be a better read than Bared to You, the author does a great job of explaining some of the issues that had bothered me in the first book. One of them being how Gideon became so successful at the age of 28. ( I still sometimes doubt it)
Every book has it’s faults, both Gideon and Eva to me were way too needy. I found their relationship to bee a bit obsessive and sometimes unhealthy. Gideon’s over “protectiveness” and Eva’s insecurity definitely made this book an interesting and emotional read. Reading through the first couple of chapters, I found Gideon’s obsessive nature and Eva’s behavior immature. The second half of the book was more interesting to read.
Sylvia Day does a great job describing each character with great detail. You can feel the passion they have towards each other and the need to always be together. After getting though the first part of this book, I could not stop reading it. As unhealthy as their relationship sounds, you can’t help but root for them. Right when you think they have overcome their problems, your wrong. Their past always has a way of catching up to them. Like usual, I don’t want to give away to much, that’s why my reviews are short. I want you guys to experience this for yourselves.
I really did enjoy this book, if you are ready for a emotional roller coaster ride, buckle up, make your favorite drink and read on!
This book can be found at pretty much any book store and online at Amazon.com
