I'm a PhD theatre student who loves not proofreading my reviews (sorry) because I have to do enough of that in school. :)

    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.…

    Story

    Hot, sexy, fit, late twenty-something billionaire who built his empire from scratch before turning 30 despite having a traumatic past immediately becomes obsessed with young twenty-something girl who is pretty and doesn't know it and despite beginning the sexcapades more like a business transaction and swearing he doesn't do the relationship thing, he immediately fall in love, plasters his walls with giant pictures of her and become super possesive, stalkerish, and jealous of anything with a penis.

    Wait. What book am I reviewing? Oh yeah.

    Christian... Oops! I mean Gideon... is the kind of guy who ignores a girl then when she gets upset tells her he wasn't that he only sees her, then screws her brains out and goes back to ignoring her. Her is Eva, not Ana, and she's constantly looking for something wrong with this guy she's so drawn to. The nightmare rape and real rape while the guy is having a nightmare only bothers her for a few hours before they do it again. Drama drama drama. There was so much forced drama that lead to sex that it really got old quick. Too much sexy time can chafe. These kinds of relationships are so friggin unhealthy and if it were real life there'd be a restraining order involved.

    But it's not real life, it's an erotic novel. And as my friend tells me, I need to quit analyzing this stuff as a real story and just appreciate it for the hot and sexy romp that it is. I try, I really do. But I can't help myself... like... you may notice that every single person, even the bit players in the book, are sexy. The roommate, the cab driver, the boss, the boss's boyfriend, the secretary at the front desk... the office assistant... EVERYONE is HOT.

    So if that doesn't bother you, enjoy :)
