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.…

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.
I've replaced my HD TV with the Audible app.
This drags out and holds the reader hostage for a truth that should have been told to reader about Gideon in book one. I got so frustrated with this book it took me more than a month to make myself listen to it in it's entirety. Worse than the first installment and the return of the "C" word with a vengance that left me livid more times than I can count as I stopped the book and walked away from it for days if not weeks on end. I'm sure in print it isn't that bad but for me it's a deal breaker. A much less vulgar noun would have made this book a 3 star story. Can't recommend the series. Give me the last hour of the book and I'd have been much happier than being forced to listen to the 18 plus hours in the two books that lead up to the big revelation.
Save yourself the frustration and go snuggle up with Christian and Anna.
OMG.... this is the best series. It has captivated me from the beginning. I can't wait for the third book to come out in May 2013. I don't know how I will be able to wait that long. The story line great, you find yourself wanting more and more. I couldn't quit listening to it.
Yes I would and I have. I have read Sylvia Day's Crossfire Novels Book 1 and 2 within 24hrs of each other. I couldn't get enough. Each page left you wanting more.
Yes and I did.
Yes!! It was a story that I couldn't turn off!!
I could easily compare this to 50 Shades. The chemistry of the characters is there from the beginning.
I loved the way she became the character in the story!!!! It was great!
I thought the first two books in this series was amazing. I can't wait for book three to be released. I hope it will be on audio right away. I don't want to have to wait for it.
I just can't seem to get into it. But because I purchased it, I will listen to it when there is no other book.
I'm a busy mom who loves to listen to books. Mostly I listen on my way to and from work.
Very high on my list. I really enjoyed the story and looking forward to what comes in book 3.
I enjoyed the whole book and actually more than the first one.
Jill Redfield does a great job.
The end when she finds out what happened and why he has told her to wait and "trust me".
Jill Redfield does a great job, in both books!
TRYING to create drama to continue this series really didn't work! It tries, but just doesn't have that kick that the first one did!!
