Our journey began in fire... 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... 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..
Okay I am one of those that have read 50 Shades and yes this book is A LOT like it. Its not a total copy but there are a lot of the same situations through out the entire book. It didn't totally upset me or anything though. But honestly I just don't think these kinda books are my thing. I guess there is the appeal of reading about a young crazy hot guy who is a billionaire, dysfunctional, no one else can break through his barriers except our heroine and is a sex god! I get it but I would rather he had some fangs or gets nice and furry during the full moon, but that is just me!
The sex in the book is hot! I mean its freaking hot hot hot!! But the relationship between Gideon and Eva is just tiring. I am sorry but after only knowing a man for a week and having to deal with all the crap would just not be worth it. I think after just a few weeks he almost rapes her in their sleep. And after what happened to her in her past its just unbelievable that she could get over that, I don't care how hot the guy is! Any why is their always some old flame in these books to come barging in and causing trouble. The dinner party made me so mad! And she just got over it too fast. Sometimes when she ran, I was like you're an idiot but then the things she decided to not run for I was like you're an idiot.
It was an okay read if you are into these kind of books. I suggest reading this or 50 Shades. Reading them both might make you compare all the similarities.
