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)
Gideon and Eva's romance continues and has a few twists and turns in there.
Eva goes through a whip lash of crazy emotions throughout this book and becomes kinda the crazy ex haha but I love it!
The ending of the book made me happy but now I can't wait for the 3rd book :D
Gideon, his character and flaws were believable.
Yes, Bared to you.
Love and War
Very good read! Can't wait for the next book.
A very good story line. Very well written. It keeps your drawn in.
They deep love that they share with one another. Words can not explain it. I really enjoyed how she stepped up and handled a lot of the things towards the end.
Like a literary version of “Iron Chef,” Sylvia Day (Crossfire series),*OWNS* E.L. James (Fifty Shades series). Sylvia Day uses the same basic ingredients: genre of books, demographics of characters, familiar story line, target market of readers) to demonstrate how *truly* skillful writing, elegant, deep, worthy-of-caring-about character development, artistically, well-constructed and timed plot development (similar to my favorite (Diana Gabaldon - "Outlander" series) from my preferred genre historical fiction). Ms. Day demonstrates a far more mature, skillful hand at the judicial and relevant use of heart-stopping, synapse-melting, um, er…”provocative and engaging literary devices" as well as a 10,000% better choice of a more gifted and professional narrator in the audio (Audible.com) version. These are intense page-turners, with ample sprinklings of opportunities to relieve the tension by laughing out loud and sharing introspection with the flawed, funny, complicated, engaging, and sympathetic characters. Just don’t listen and drive; you’ll find yourself driving off of a cliff. Maybe while running on a treadmill? 9-) Just remember to breathe. (Not for those who are uncomfortable with some explicit sexual situations or language, even though it is well done and critical to both character, plot, and conflict development). Highly recommended. Well done.
I still want to see what happens in book 3 - but it does seem as though book 2 was more of just treading water until we got to book 3. Why not go ahead and move the relationship forward in book 2 instead of just going through more of what seems the same as book 1?
Yes, as I said will still want to see what happens in book 3 but will probably wait for it to go on sale.
Narrator captures the characters well.
There are things that it seems should have happened in book 2 that will now have to wait for book 3.
Say something about yourself!
I Book two of the series was just as good as book one. Eva and Gideon relationship is strange since they mostly communicate when having sex and they both have issue they need to work on. Gideon Finally opens up to Eva about what happen to him as a child in the last few Chapters. Can't wait for book three I am addicted.
Gideon & Eva's relationship is crazy but so addictive! I could not stop listening to see what would happen next
No first time but won't be the last, her male voices are not the best but her fluidity and emotion make up for it
The last chapter! The extent to which Gideon is willing to go for Eva
Can't wait for the last on "Entwined with you"
Its a good book but there are some others that top this one. But over all I give this book a 4
the part where there in the elevater
I enjoyed the real life issues and characters this book works on. Obviously being rich makes it easier, but life is life.
Looking for the next one.
It was very good. I would read it again if I had it to do over.
The characters really make you feel for them even though their psychological issues can be a little frustrating sometimes. I often wanted to shake the female main character and tell her to BREATHE and be rational lol.
I didn't really enjoy her reading. It was very breathy and I found her male voice to be extremely overdone and annoying.
It made me laugh but not cry.
"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.
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.
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
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
"Better then the first"
Narration was brilliant yet again, can't fault it. It would probably benefit from having a male doing Gideons part, but she made it work well enough with what she had.
I was pretty fed up with the constant break ups every 5 minutes, it was worse then Blaire and Chick Bass (Gossip Girl). Also the story twists didn't really go anywhere, the conclusion was pretty dull. But the fact I listened all the way through means I'm probably not giving it enough credit.
"unbelievably amazing !!!"
I didn't think I could experience so many emotions in such a short amount of time. I have been on the edge of my seat on sentenced gripped with anticipation and giggling like a school girl at the next sentence.
Fantastic writing which really pulls you in. Aided by the extremely well delivered narration. The voice variations plus the descriptives help bring the characters and the story alive.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND and to enforce that I'm now going to start book 3.
Have fun and enjoy 😀
