Honestly I should stop reading books by this author because time and time again I am let down.

OK, so this book is slightly better than Fifty Shades of Gray, but only slightly. There are a LOT, and I mean a LOT of sex scenes. Basically every chapter! So if you want erotica with practically zero plot line, here you go.

Gideon and Eva are two very damaged people who have immense chemistry between them. However, there doesn't seem to be any actual relationship and character development for MOST of the story. There is a little bit here and there (the therapy sessions and near the end where Gideon reveals his inner most dark secret), but barely to make any difference with the story.

Basically Eva wants to trust Gideon, but she has trust issues due to her past (it sounds like a brutal past, based on what I have learned in this book) and is working to try and get through the rough stuff. Luckily she has an amazing support team, like her mom, stepdad and BFF roommate. Gideon seriously keeps telling Eva to trust him but refuse to reveal or explain any of his mysterious and easy to misinterpret actions (which does nothing to help poor Eva at all <- seriously she already has trust issues, just explain your stupid actions so she can stop jumping to conclusions!). It is only until the climax that we find out why Gideon did what he did, but even then he is super duper controlling and cannot trust Eva to use her best judgement to handle or understand the situation. I feel that if she had felt her life was in danger, she would have taken the proper precautions and with Gideon having someone tail her, she was pretty safe.

So..... super controlling and rich guy who doesn't like to talk much, with a frail and need to be taken care but pretty looking female, and lots and lots of sex. Yep, sounds like Fifty Shades of Gray, minus the bondage stuff and inner monologue by the female protagonist.

The jealousy in the book is what hooked me . Sylvia really made that eye opening and hit home with me. I am really enjoying every thing she has written I have about exhausted all that the library has to offer.... 50 Shades was excellent but Sylvia offers just as much excitement and different angles to issues the characters have.

The crossfire novels are wonderfully written books with amazing descriptions. Sylvia Day has outdone herself with this series. Looking forward to continuing this series, devouring a book per day.

I was very disappointed. I really started skimming thru multiple pages. The sex scenes offered nothing new and got old. Every other paragraph was about how attractive he was. Seriously, we got it - don't have to mention it on every page. The idea that something was going to come up with Nathan is obvious is the first book but instead of making that a focus they just go on dates and have fights and sex. Zzzzzz. There was nothing really interesting about it. I was really hoping she was going to break up with him and go out with Bret and then maybe something interesting might finally happen in that relationship because the Gideon thing got boring. Even Cary got boring. In the first book she was interesting and stood her ground, the second one she was pathetic.

Easy read romance! Eva and Gideon both had traumatic childhoods with far reaching after effects and the best thing the author did was to put them both individually and as a couple in therapy.

Only 3 stars,just so so. A little to much
sex just to fill the pages.

As much as I love the Fifty Shades trilogy, the Slyvia Day 'In You" trilogy was just as good if not better!!

The worst book I've read this year. I had to push through it.

I still consider this series to be a rip off of Fifty Shades, but it's not bad.

Very good author. Continues to have similarities to 50 Shades of Gray, but really enjoyed the book.

Book 2 in the Crossfire trilogy is good. Not as risqué as the 1st book, but still steamy in parts.

Awesome series. Couldn't put it down and can't wait for Entwined With You.

"People get over love. They can live without it, they an move on. Love an be lost and found again. But that won't happen for me. I won't survive you, Eva. I'm obsessed with you, angel. Addicted to you. You're everything I've ever wanted or needed, everything I've ever dreamed of. You're everything. I live and breathe you. For you."
