Description: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 . . .
Intensely romantic, darkly sensual and completely addictive, Sylvia Day's Reflected in You will take you to the very limits of obsession - and beyond.
The Good Stuff
- Fabulous character development
- As mentioned in the first novel I was extremely impressed with the discussion of therapy and working towards a healthy relationship
- Understand Gideon a lot better but still don't approve of his controlling behaviour
- Extremely erotic
- As mentioned before I find the relationship between Eva and Cary to be beautiful - true friendship
- Intriguing mystery (though I totally figured it out)
- The inclusion of Eva's dad into the story is a wonderful added touch
- Nice to see Gideon opening up about what happened
- Looking forward to reading the next book in the series and am cheering for these two damaged souls to work things out
- Raw, dark, honest and yet that hint of hope
The Not So Good Stuff
- Frustrating at times because of the decisions the characters make - works for the story though
- A lot of repetition
- Eva was a wee bit of a wuss through the first half of novel -- but it does get better - again just frustrating
"Most suits made the man. Gideon did things to a three-piece suit that should've been illegal."
The only way I'm keeping my hands off her is if I'm dead. Find another way to fix us.
"Expect believe him. Which is what you should have done as his mother."
Who Should/Shouldn't Read
- Definitely for those who enjoyed the first book
I received this from Penguin UK in exchange for an honest review
