"Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily… Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds… and desires.
"The bonds of his love transformed me, even as I prayed that the torment of our pasts didn’t tear us apart...."

Fifty Shades Trilogy
I just reloaded it to listen to it again. Of course I have also loved the second book too!
This book was so close to Fifty Shades I had to look at the copyright. I could not believe the story lines ran so parallel.
I thought this was a really great series and it kept me wondering what was going to happen next all the time. NOTHING can be compared to "50" however it was as good as "50" in its own way.....as they are different books definitely...but the same in the sense that their love was so deep. I liked this book a lot and and loved the characters.
I am audio book addicted. Lets me do two things at once, multi-tasking to the inth degree. Love series, and hot and spicy books best.
I have read nothing but horrible review of the stupid 50 shades. My sister could not even finish reading the 3rd book. This series is so super, I plan on getting the books for her for Christmas. I broke this first one up into 3 nights, nearly killed me, but book 2 was an all nighter. One hour of sleep before I had to get the kids off to school.
I just loved them both, Book 2 a little more frustrating I guess is the word, like another review said they were all over the place, but I just knew it would all come together. This book, WoW I love a handsome, ripped, self-assured man that knows what he wants and is blunt in asking for it. Man, I would do Gideon. Id even put up with his crap to have him, so I guess I related very well with the main female character.
I usually save credits for books over 20, so I paid $ for this and the 2nd one, NO REGRETS, I would pay for it or credit for them both.
Just absolutely ones I will hear more than another time.
The next book is due I think in March, 2013. Check out the author website and see. I will be in line for that one too.
The love story
The way he loved her. And he would do anything for her.
Well worth listening to.
Great story, sad and happy but very hot and steamy~
50 shades, Gideon is very dominant!
She makes it very emotional
Laughed and cried!
Read all the series, reflected to you is next and can't wait for the next one in December to come out!!
yes, i thought it was really intriging
the obsession between Ava and Gideon.
the images in you mind and she is reading, its like your there watching
the crazy nightmares
I thought this was a really good read and i cant wait to buy book 3!!
This story was very erotically hot. The narration was hot also. However it was repetitive at times, and the main characters defiantly had issues, even though the sex was great, they had trust issues with each other which is something that just is not healthy in any sexual relationship......You don't need a degree to know this.
Gideon and Eva are the whole story, everyone else is filler. Even the evil perps. The two just simmer around each other and their sexuality is so intense they have trouble dealing with it because of their trust issues......
To much of the same repetition, especially with Gideon's controlling Eva, and she pretending that he doesn't......get a grip. But it is very hot and the descriptions are not for people who can't handle XXXX.
Just too much repetition of the problems in their relationship. At the end of the book you felt that they were going to work things out. I don't know what the second book has in store but I hope that their trust issues and control issues get worked out. Gideon is every womans dream, mega wealthy, sexy, et al. and Eva is a super sensual submissive who wants to give all to this man. They are both wealthy, (If only I had that problem) Just remember this is total fiction........
I loved the characters stories and the baggage they bring with them...
The emotions from the characters..
Couldn't wait to read the next book.
A fantastic book, I founf the book gripping at the edge of my seat wanting to know the next part. I can't wait for the next one.
If you liked Mr Grey, you will LOVE Mr Crossfire. No bondage etc as such but seriously hot.
"Ava's living the life!"
Only down to half of the book, but I can already say this is something! Love the narrating, love the style and the descriptions... Makes me want to be in New York and find my own Sex God!
"50 shades at a faster pace"
After listening to the 50 shades books I was left wanting more like most others, so I stumbled apon this as a recommendation and was not disappointed its fast, sexy and uses real words unlike 50 shades using "he touched my sex". I just wish it was longer and looking forward to the next instalment.
"Can't wait for more....."
Bared to you leaves you wanting to know what is going to happen next. It just wets the appetite leaving you wanting more and will be listening to the next book as soon as I've written this. You want to no what has made them the way they are and if they will make it through. You also feel for the same the people around them especially his sister.
As for Jill Redfield's narration she is exceptional her tones and the little things she adds make it easy to listen and get lost in the story.
"Not that bad"
I have read 50 shades and many many other types of these books and i feel this book is getting a little bit of a bad name because every one is very quick to compare with 50 shades but i read it as it own book and not the best book in the world it is no where near the worst i have read i will read the next one when it comes out and looking forward to it.
"Great Read for those who loved 50 shades"
I normally read fantasy but was bought 50 shades and then this was recommended to me. Excellent book the language is real and the story was excellent. Nice to see characters that have issues, makes them seem very real. Can't wait for the next two :p
"Love love love"
50 shades of grey but good! Can't wait to read the second one! Only criticism is that I'm totally jealous
"Wonderfully erotic and definitely worth reading"
If you loved Christian Grey and 50 Shades then this is the book for you. Although having some clear similarities there are enough significant differences to make it enthralling and erotically entertaining.
Don't be put off as this is well written and very well narrated although it does beg the question ..... are all billionaires fvcked up in their pasts and obsessive in their relationships ! ;) you just gotta love em :*) <3
"a great listen"
loved this when I read it ages ago, great to listen to
the narrater was very easy to listen to, can't wait to start book 2
