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.…

No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Yes, although I'd warn that it contains adult language & themes.
Discovering more about Gideon & Eva's characters and background.
Yes, she did Bared to You as well.... equally great performances.
No extreme reactions-ever. However, it made me think and curious for more...
Intense. Hot. Interesting.
Gideon was the hard edged sexy man we all lust for. His vulnerabilities and his obsessive need for his woman just made him even better.
She had the ability to make all her males voices sound realistic. Something that other female narrators have difficulty with. She was great.
Extreme reaction yes. I didnt want it to end..
Ok, so I knew what I was getting into when I started listening to this book, since it is a sequel, yet I thought it would pick up and have some kind of substance to it. There was no plot whatsoever except for the last fourth of the book. What we have is umpteen pages of: sex, withhold secrets from each other, argue about that, more sex, more sex, withhold secrets REPEAT. I rolled my eyes so many times during this book...it was that bad at times. That being said, the narrator of the audiobook did a wonderful job, but the story...ugh.
I loved the whole book from beginning to end
Gideon and Eva
the tag line would be the story line that dealt with Gideon and the stalker.
Eva expects Gideon to respond to her commands, but turns around and does the exact opposite of what she demands from Gideon. Gideon wouldn’t be able to stay at an important function because he would be constantly running after Eva in her controlling fits. Spoiler alert: Every character deceives by omission. Gideon doesn’t tell Eva anything, Eva’s roommate hides the fact that Eva’s ex is in town, Eva hides the existence of the ex from Gideon even when Gideon is going to be in the same room with the ex, Eva hides a visit with her father from her mother, and then hides the fact that both of her parents are in her apartment at the same time. Why all the lying and deceit? Talk about not communicating – cowards and manipulators all. For two books, Eva demanded that Gideon tell her everything – a constant tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me... The book finally gets to a point where Gideon is going to tell, and Eva says “You don’t have to tell me”. What’s up with that? At that point, a supposed serious moment turns out to be a joke. Then at the end, the book takes a turn where it would be difficult for the characters to recover – you see that a lot of times in TV shows or in a movie when something happens just to keep people watching or talking. Yeah, talking about how stupid that part of the story was. It just feels like the writer was desperate for ideas. I do listen to some book just to keep up with the latest craze, but I don’t always enjoy them.
YES.......I love the love story happening
All of them!
Yes I did....
Can't wait for the next book!!!!!!
The anticipation of waiting after loving the first book.
Fifty Shades of Grey to a 'T'.
One of the better voice artists in my opinion.
Yes, the actions he took to protect her.
Great book for those who became obsessed with this type of genre after 50 shades. I am on pins and needles waiting for book #3.
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.
