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...
I have to say I really do love Sylvia Day’s writing style. And I have to say without a doubt that this book was a great sequel to the previous book. As with all series, this book may contain spoilers for any previous book, so either be prepared or read the other book first (my vote is read the other book first).
So this book is a lot of push and pull with Gideon and Eva. And truth be told I kinda liked it. I liked that there was kind of a divide going on between this new couple, because not only do I believe it will make the two of them stronger as a couple later down the line, but I also think it made for some really intense reading.
While both Gideon and Eva have some serious pasts to deal with, I think Eva is in a better place than Gideon. Eva has told people about what has happened to her, and even better she actually trusts a couple people in her life, so she has people to lean on. Whereas Gideon is still very secretive about his past, and I think he has a hard time trusting anyone, sometimes even Eva. I think its the reason why he is so controlling and secretive.
What I loved about Eva in this book is that she she starts to really stand up to people and give people a piece of her mind. A lot of stuff happens in this book that happens off-screen if you will, so Eva is left in the dark to what is going on with some very important developments. And thanks to whatever is going on that is beyond Eva’s understanding, it results in Gideon pulling away from Eva. Almost to the point where I thought these two were never going to get their acts together. And Eva really doesn’t take it well, as you can imagine, but after some time goes by, and the status quo stays the same, she opts to take things into her own hands, and that’s where things start getting really interesting.
I really liked this book, and it made me super excited about the next book in this series. I loved the push and pull in this book, and the suspense of trying to figure out what is going on with Gideon. Sylvia is always great at the hot and steamy, and that is still the case in this book. I would highly recommend this book and this series to anyone at all.
