yes. I would. This book makes sense. Both parties are wealthy. Eva is different from the other women in his life. She has no real interest in money since she has her own. She is fragile and tough at the same time. Both of them are. They go through a lot of ups and downs that could be avoided if they would talk to each other. It is hard to believe that people who have everything could be so miserable. Goes to show you....money can not buy happiness.
Glad she is doing all of that narratives.
I think that the reader will only like this series if they are interested in HOW this couple manages to make it work. There is a lot of work that needs to be done. Both are severely damaged. Overall, I have enjoyed the chemistry between the two, but I love how they are willing to fight for each other. I also love how Eva refuses to become a slave to him. SHe has a backbone and is just as willing to fight for her man as he is to fight for her.
This book was a cheap knock off of Fifty Shades of Grey. With every plot twist, I felt deja vu all over again. While it had moments of acceleration, it quickly spiraled into an abyss of lame sex narration and predictable plot and twists.
I am an avid "reader"- I prefer to listen to books rather than read them due to the added dimension added by the narrator.
This series was addictive. Really ramped up the juices! Eva and Gideon work out the kinks in their relationship as this second instalment in the Crossfire series continues. Eva and Gideon really are very well suited to one another...Eva just seems to miss that point on numerous occasions, letting her insecurities and fear of abandonment from her childhood influence her faith in Gideon's love and devotion to her. A great series.
NO! I read it so much differently with the book than listening to it.
Shades of grey. The love story behind it is very similar.
I didn't really enjoy how dramatic she gets. And I didn't like the male voices she played.
No, I listen to books while sitting in traffic. So it was over a few days.
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
OMG!! I finally read/listened to this book! I read the 1st book quite a few months ago and told myself I could wait until all 5 books in this series were released, as my need for instant gratification would drive me crazy-nuts waiting. The other reason I didn't read this book quickly after the 1st, was because of Corinne.
In the previous book Magdalena (Gideon's "Friend") was totally dismantled and disarmed as a womanly threat to Eva, however, a new threat was introduced in Gideon's ex-fiance, Corinne. I felt so jealous for Eva that I didn't know if I could handle (without getting seriously pissed) all of the shenanigans Gideon takes on with Corrine in this book (well, I got that idea through reviews I had read). But, let me tell you.....after reading this book, there simply are NO other womanly threats PERIOD....it's ONLY Eva for Gideon. Corinne was a very minor distraction in this book, hardly noticeable to me, since I was so enthralled with Gideon and Eva's love affair. From the back seat of limos, to concerts, to hot tubs, to beach getaways to office surfaces and lastly his place, or hers....Gideon & Eva's red-hot smoldering love for one another took on a sexual napalm quality, while layering on the deep roots of a love forged in the heart. But it wasn't just about the women in Gideon's past trying to seep themselves into his life, Eva also has a past that impacts this relationship. I liked that Gideon also had to deal with a possible threat of a previous lover wanting Eva back. Whoa!!! Hot-stuff!
Yet the biggest threat to Gideon and Eva's love seems to lead back to a secret. Gideon holds, closely to his breast, a bold secret. Consistently, Gideon asks Eva to trust him when things look suspicious. Yet, not only does Eva have to exert these super-power trust abilities, but so does the reader. And when that secret is revealed it has an explosive impact that underscores how committed and crazy in love Gideon is for Eva...how he will stop at nothing to protect and secure her love.
WOW!! This book was simply incredible! I love the way Sylvia Day writes..her prose is almost lyrical, and these characters she creates...OMG, unforgettable!
On a side note, I think it was funny how Eva seemed to describe everyone in her social orbit as drop dead gorgeous: her mother is gorgeous, her father, her friends, her rivals etc. You get the picture. Yet, I thought if an average-looking person fell into Eva's social circle, she would probably describe them as having model-quality looks as well, that's how exaggerated her comments about people's looks came across to me.
Narrator: Jill Redfield is a narrating goddess. She is one of the best! She really makes these interesting characters come to life (especially Gideon during the love making scenes...lol...pretty crazy performance...haha).
*** Sigh, I wish all 5 books were out already......
