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.…

"A steamy read that will have you furiously flipping pages." (Glamour)
"When it comes to brewing up scorchingly hot sexual chemistry, Day has few literary rivals." (Booklist)
He did what?!?
In the first book we met Gideon and he was distant, cold, economical. By the end of book one, we sort of know better, but only barely. In this book we finally get to see who he is, inside, because of Eva. He is no longer a cold calculating billionaire, he is molten lava hot for Eva and will do anything, I repeat, ANYTHING, for her. I liked the angsty feelings that dredged up whilst reading this. It had been a while since I read book one and two and I am re-reading these before I begin book three. I forgot just how awesome Gideon is.
Her smooth voice and slight character changes can almost make the words play out like a movie in your head.
It's a re-read for me so I pretty much knew what was coming. However, the fact that Brett happens to be in love with Eva when she was thinking this whole time she was just one of the many girls he was having was bittersweet. ***SPOILER BELOW***When Gideon sees them kissing he charges and attacks Brett,and even though she didn't start the kiss and had just pulled away realizing it's ONLY Gideon she wants, you have to wonder what this now means for Eva and Gideon..."I'd caused that. I had turned the warm, wickedly playful man who'd enchanted me all evening into the cold murderous fighter in front of me."And then the ride in the limo after they pick Gideon back up...Holy Hotness...*fanning face*...WOW! He asks her over and over "Why, Eva?" and she tells him "I don't know" and a sexual battle ensues and she finally breaks down. That was intense!
Read this series!!! It's awesome!
This second book did not disappoint me I am hooked on them. I know everyone loves the 50 set of books but for me this one is far better and a little more believable for me. I could not relate to the others as well. (Not that they were not great)
OK, so if you liked book 1, book 2 is much the same. I love that Ava is a strong female character with her own opinions. She's not perfect and she makes mistakes. The overall story is pretty good. However, what keeps me coming back to this series is the narrator. She does an amazing job with this book. She brings another fantastic performance in her reading of this book. I'll be buying whatever she reads!
Avid book reader & addicted to audio books
Not in my top ten, but a good series by Syliva Day. Jill Redfield is a great narrator and looking forward to listening to more from her.
Eva and Gideon
Gideon of course ;)
I discovered that this isn't really my genre and i probably shouldn't have picked this title. It was a learning experience. The book didn't seem bad, its just not the type of thing I enjoy
Say something about yourself!
Eva - I love the way that Jill Redfield portrays Eva. She brings a real passion to the love scenes without making them cheesy.
I truly believe that The Crossfire books are a better series than 50 Shades. I love both, but these are my favorite audiobooks. Jill Redfield's performance is wonderful!
New to Audible, but already addicted.
Top of my ranking.
When Eva realized what Gideon had done for her and that his love was real.
Has a good range for all the different characters in this book.
Yes, but I don't want to ruin it for anyone.
I have recommended this book to friends, but the audio was just brilliant. I loved Jill Redfield performance. She has the ability to switch characters and use her voice, expressive performance to make it believable and hook you in every time. She has done a wonderful job.
I enjoyed the complexity of the two main characters who are scarred by circumstances beyond their control and so horribly traumatized that their only survival is to be together yet separation seems to be the only option.
My favorite scene would have to be when Gideon finally opens up and reveals his deepest secret to Eva and an understanding of trust is shared between both characters.
I loved this book. I loved the performance by Jill Redfield. Highly Recommend it 5 STARS!
I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.
YES AND I HAVE IT A WONDERFUL BOOK CANT WAIT FOR BOOK 3
Gideon Cross HIS ACT OF LOVE AND EVEN HIS WRONG DOING I LOVE
IT THE SAME BUT VERY GOOD
I'm a Blogger and A girl who love to Travel
what i love about this book is the romantic story of Eva and Gideon..its a modern fairytale
you can feel the emotion the feelings of the author who write the story..all in all i really love it...i love it so much
"Another great book"
The second book is better than the first if that was possible. Cannot wait for the third one to be released. Excellent. Giddeon and Ava are worthy contenders for Chrstian and Ana but the Crossfire books are better written.
I absolutely loved Bared to You - in fact it was one of my favourite books of the year - so I couldn't wait to spend more time with Gideon and Eva in Reflected in You.Even better than the first, the chemistry between Gideon and Eva is hot I love how the books end with no cliff hangers but leave you wanting more.
This title grabbed me, I loooved the content and narration. I fully enjoyed listening to this book.
Well done Sylvia Day and thanks for the wonderful narration Jill Redfield
If I was producing the abridged version - sex, flatmate gets hurt, sex, Gideon discovers Ava's secret past, sex, Ava discovers Gideon's secret past, sex, the end. Needless to say it was all a bit monotonous.
"Story is dull first half. Not as expected."
Narrator was good but I would very much prefer a male voice for Gideon. Skipped bits and pieces in the 1st half. Repetitive.
I loved listening to this can't wait for the next in the series of novels
Story really picked up at the end, less of the repetitive sex scenes would be great. Altogether enjoyable, let's see what the third book brings
"a great audiobook"
I loved this audible version, the narrater is perfect, a great story and downloading book 3 straight away
Love this series of books and loving the audio too, I think Jill Redfield has to be one of the best audio voices I've heard
"good but not as alluring as first"
hope nook 3 is better as this one did not grasp my attention aa the first and there are gaps in my view not necessarily making me wait in awe to find out but rather leave me confused
