    A childhood accident left Emmaline vulnerable to disturbing fugue states that last minutes but feel like an eternity. The blackouts are unsettling but manageable... until she meets Johnny Dellasandro. The painter gained fame in the '70s for his debauched lifestyle and raunchy art films. His naked body achieved cult status, especially in Emm's mind - she's obsessed with the man, who's grown even sexier with age. Today he shuns the spotlight and Emm... until she falls into a fugue on his doorstep.

    ****SPOILER****
    I loved this book (I have two favorite Megan Hart books Collide and Naked). This book is full of everything: romance, humor (extremely funny), and a tear jerker. I loved almost everything about this book however; there are a few things….. hmmmm…………. that were never asked/clarified by Emm and confusing to me. 1. She never asked Johnny how he knew her name or her cell phone number. 2. Emm never told Johnny about her dreams in detail but in the end he knew what was wrong with her. I demand a part two.

    Thirty-three-year-old Shea Rigsby has spent her entire life in Walker, Texas - a small college town that lives and dies by football, a passion she unabashedly shares. Raised alongside her best friend, Lucy, the daughter of Walker’s legendary head coach, Clive Carr, Shea was too devoted to her hometown team to leave. Instead she stayed in Walker for college, even taking a job in the university athletic department after graduation, where she has remained for more than a decade.

    I haven’t written a review in almost 3 years but I had to break my silence to address the ….. ( need a word for the abrupt ending of this book, can’t think of any right now my mind is too jumbled). I will not address what this book is really about because it would be no different from the summary provided to us by the author/publishers (above) or without giving a spoiler; I will only address the abrupt ending….. Ms. Giffin, your readers would like to know what happens with Shea and her “most favorite person in the world” when they met up later. What did they talk about? Was it Lucy etc? Did they make love (I’m sure they did but we want to know, I can’t live on assumptions)? Did they have a baby? How long before they moved in together? And much more. Although this was a great book (as usual) and I stayed up all night reading it, I a very angry in the end because I paid for this book hoping to get my money’s worth but like more retailors these days, the deal was cut short. After which I couldn’t sleep wondering what happened next. Unless, you have another follow up book in the works ( please, please, please say yes) if not, there is no excuse. If you would note, I am using the word/pronoun “we” because I am sure your other readers are having a love hate relationship with the ending of the book as well, love, the way it happened and hate, how you left us hanging with NO epilogue or one last page addressing the next. Please, please, I beg of you, publish a deleted scene about what happens after (I’ll even pay for it).

    Disappointed, and one of your greatest fan……me.

    You have got to be kidding me.... Really…… Johanna Lynsey how original, playing swticharoo with the maid (Then to make matters worse), in the house of the man you will marry. I paid for this drivel? I skimmed through about 19 chapters. 84 % of the book was about her deception. The book was good overall (if you like those kinds of childish games), but since it turned me off in the beginning I knew, that no matter how good the rest of the book, I would not enjoy it.

    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.…

    What a remarkable journey into the lives of Gideon and Eva. The narration was a delight. The book was perfect. Oh how I love thee, let me count the ways:
    The Narrator was fabulous, (after listening to this book, now one of my top 3 all time favorites)
    The Plot was simply the best, the sexual tension/scenes, the pleasure, the eagerness, the characters, the anxiety, the love, the fulfillment, the laughs, the tears, the longing for the next book. I am now officially obsessed with the Crossfire series.

    This book has little (very little) likeness to Fifty Shades of Gray.



    My note to publisher and Author:
    I hate you for making me wait until June for the next book.

Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires. Gabe has starred in Mia’s fantasies more than once, ever since she was a teenager with a huge crush on her brother’s best friend. So what if Gabe’s 14 years older? Mia knows he’s way out of her league, but her attraction has only grown stronger with time. She’s an adult now, and there’s no reason not to act on her most secret desires.

    Absolutely loved it. My immediate thoughts after the first chapter was “great..... another attempt to re-write Fifty Shades of Gray.” In the end, I was totally wrong, I laughed, got angry, was repulsed, cried and talked to the characters as if they were real people. The hero (Gabe) and heroine (Mia) have known each other for years. Gabe is scarred by his ex-wife and vows he would never get involved in a relationship without protecting himself. Mia has always had a girlish crush on Gabe, never knowing his special likeness for her. Now Mia is all grown up, and plans to make a surprise appearance to her brother’s hotel grand opening ....... and there it begins. Very happy ending, I only wish there was an epilogue to follow.

    The narrator sounds, like a very old lady ; not very comfortable listening to swearing or sex scenes being read by someone that sounds like my gramma. Linda Howard is a wonderful author; if you are willing to take the chance go for it.

But when she rescued Rene Lemonnier from certain death and nursed him back to health in her stark little chamber, he aroused more than her interest. Once in his arms, Cyrene knew that the wickedness the brothers had sought to protect her from was a passion too exquisite to deny....

    Readers, I recommend you purchase this one, TRUST me. I never thought I would ever "waste my credit" on young adults’ books, but..... if they’re all as good as this one………….hmmmmmmmmm.
    Readers, If you love, fantasy, Sci-fi and just a tab bit of romance, you will not regret this buy.
