Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness—beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I'd never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily...While at BEA 2012 I had the opportunity to meet Ms. Day and got a signed copy of her book. Immediately upon reading the blurb, I knew this was the first book I wanted to read when I got home.
Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other's most private wounds... and desires.
The bonds of his love transformed me, even as I prayed that the torment of our pasts didn't tear us apart...
An erotic love tale that was really realistic for me. Some compare it to Fifty Shades of Grey; I found it better written and more intense. Both Eva and Gideon are screwed up; they both have a damaged past that makes them the insecure lovers they are.
Eva has just moved to NYC to start a new life, when she meets the sexist man she has ever seen in her life. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame she can’t ever get enough. But with a past like hers can she ever really love someone? Can she ever fully trust someone not to hurt her again?
Gideon is a powerful man with money who is used to getting what he wants. Driven solely by his determination of success he does not waste time on dating. Only seeking out the satisfaction of a night or two with a willing woman, Gideon is unwilling to change his ways until he meets Eva.
Their first meeting is so electrifying your drawn into them and their story. Can two broken souls even fix the other? Can they make something work between them while making up rules as they go? Are the better off apart or together?
A powerful story with so much lust between them you have to wonder if there can ever be love. Some very erotic love scenes that made me want more! I could not put the book down because I wanted to know what happened next. Even the sub characters are so screwed up, making this a very complex story. I so can’t wait until the next book to see where this goes.
I recommend it to anyone who loves a well written edgy, lustful, seductive kind of relationship.
