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.…

"When it comes to brewing up scorchingly hot sexual chemistry, Day has few literary rivals." (Booklist)
I am a person how loves a Great Listen after a long day at Work!
If only he was real. :( I have read these books like 4 times and will read them again right before the 3rd one comes out! I am so excited to see how things start up again.
I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
Like all fiction, there are certain crazy things you must accept in order to have a good story -- the existence of vampires in Dallas or talking animals, etc. This book has a lot of such things you must just accept as necessary for the plot to proceed. For instance, the main characters, Gideon and Ava, are in a hopelessly screwed-up relationship. They have all kinds of problems, but then can have sex anywhere, anyplace, anytime. For me this became boring and then ridiculous. I started turning the narrator speed to 2X as soon as they started getting amorous.
All that being said, I really am invested in the relationship between Ava and Gideon and anxiously await the next book which will hopefully result in questions being answered and a happy ending for these two tortured lovers!
Narrator is awesome.
If they likes 50 shades, they will like this book. Similar but different
Don't want to give it away
Worth the credit
Yes...yes...a thousand times yes!!! If you are a fan of the genre, I don't think it gets much better.
The most memorable moment was in the car when he confessed what happened to him as a child. I cried...actually cried while driving home from work. My husband thought something terrible had happened to me and I couldn't explain why I was so upset over a book!
I love every scene with Cary...even if he is being bad. I want a roommate like him...someone who will do my hair and help me pick out clothes...someone who will love me warts and all and be my friend for the rest of my life!!!
The car scene I already mentioned...and then the scene at the very end. I cannot wait for the next book!!!
Look, the romance books are changing And Sylvia Day is leading the way.
Gideon and Ava. The Sex is. Totally awesome,butThere is a great story attached.
OMG. She is a great Narrator. I put her upWith Xe Sands. And that is a great honor.
Sylvia? Keep em coming!!!! Jill? You are newly anointed!!!
This was my absolute favorite "Romance Audiobook". I even listened to the Fifty Shades Trilogy and it was dull in comparison.
I loved that we got a better sense of Gideon. Once the story really started to unfold I was sucked in completely. Gideon was dominate and strong despite Ava's inability to comply.
I really appreciate her getting into the sexual bits... It takes the story to an entirely different level.
I listened to this book in a complete day. I could not stop, I needed to know where this was going.
Please listen!!! Jill is the best narrator.
who came first Reflected in You? or 50 shades of gray? So similar, it could be a mirrow copy, same storyl, same caracters, different channel. Disapointing
Yes I would Listen To it again. Because It was a well written book and it was extremely well narrated.
That it sounded real like real conversations and not just talking to your self.
Probably the scene where shes telling Cary to "Take care of it before You go" I laughed so hard.
Yes definitely but not without head phones sh*t gets steamy.
I LOOOVVEE that they stuck with the same narrator its my biggest problem with audiobook series is when they change the narrator
Tell us about yourself!
The story is intriguing and sweet. The sex is hot and the love story is deep. A story that make you want that kind of love. Eva and Gideon continue the romance and exploration of their relationship. The trust that developss between the two finally allows Gideon to tell part of his tragic story. The flow of the story makes you wanting for more.
The honesty and the confession of Gideon to Eva. You can feel the love and understanding that is between the two...explains a bit more into the nightmares that haunt Gideon.
Eva...of course...I really like that the narrator really gets the emotion of Eva's character. Even in the hot and steamy parts of the book.
If I had all day to listen to this story I would. Its that good. I've listened to it 3 times since I purchased it.
I wish more narrators were into the characters as Ms. Redfield has. I can see and really feel the emotions of the characters. I like that you can define the difference between female characters and even the males.
The love story and the heat from love and desire.
The way it captured you and drew me in to connect with the relationship.
All were my favorites. I could.wait to get the next book and it was as good and streaming. Book three is already preordrered.
Thee entire Crossfire series has moved me. It make believe in love and passion all over again
I hope the romance does end in book three. Great writing is hard to find. I loved Fifty Shades bit Crossfire series tops my favorites reads. Love it.
