Reflected In You ~ Sylvia Day

                                                         Grab the champagne!

                                                             Pop the cork!

                                                         Warn your husbands!

                                              Let's shout it from the rooftops ladies....  

                                        'It's here!! It's here!!.... It's FINALLY here!!'

October 2nd was like Christmas (Crossmas!) for Sylvia Day fans who use Kobo, Kindle, Nook  
( Let's sing!! "Deck the halls with Mommy Porn...Fa la la la la, la la la..."  or  "Gideon Cross is coming to town....")

Reflected In You was released for ebook!
(Don't worry paperback lovers, your day is approaching I heard Oct 23rd is the day for North American Release!)

If you haven't read the first book in the Crossfire series, than you had better do the following:

  a) Check out my blog on Bared To You!
  b) Go out and buy the above mentioned book and read it so you can keep up!

This is a series you really shouldn't read out of order!

So what did I think of the much anticipated Reflected In You???

**drumroll please**

Looooooooooooooooooved it!!!!!

Couldn't put it down.

At all.

So much so I almost forgot to take my daughter to her dance class! (We made it with minutes to spare!)
Than like a true book addict, I sent my husband to pick her up and I stayed up late to enjoy the silence and finish reading. The story picked up right where it left off. We are thrown into the story as Eva and Gideon's jealousy issues are at an all time high!

(When you read it pop some popcorn, get wine, wear comfy clothes, don't expect to sleep)

We have the same cast of characters (see previous blog for those who have no idea who they are) but we meet a few new ones! Mainly an ex boyfriend of Eva's named Brett Kline and also her father who comes for a visit. Brett is out to win Eva back! (Say WHAT!!?)  Corrine (Gideon's ex finance who we met in book one) is also back in the picture. Sparks are flying and steam is coming out of Eva's ears.
Some secrets about the past are revealed and we learn more about both Gideon and Eva, but we still have ALOT to learn and a lot of loose ends that need tied up. True to her nature, Sylvia Day leaves us wanting more! Her books are truly addicting!

Eva and Gideon have such a tumultuous relationship, they are so obsessed with each other it borders on insanity. At times reading it I thought to myself 'I don't care how sexy he is, dude needs a restraining order!'. Gideon is very domineering and his silence in the book frustrating. You feel Eva's irritation. You do not know what Gideon is thinking or what he is up to.
It's funny how absorbed in a novel I can get when I really truly want to jump in and yell at the characters. He was driving ME insane.
(Men take note: What women like... Hot sex = Yes!  Being Stalked and Bossed around = No!)

Eva, on the other hand, is one chick in need of a chill pill. She is one of the most imperfect heroines I think I have ever read about (which is why this novel is so interesting) She has so many past demons to deal with, it's a wonder she has energy left to tolerate the insatiable Mr. Cross and his moody temper (let alone all the other drama that comes her way)
It doesn't help she likes to stick her nose in his business where it doesn't belong all the while complaining that he does it to her. She has a tit-for-tat philosophy (he wants the tits, she wants the tat....bahahahaha..K, I get it, the joke sucked....moving on.....) I have to say though. I love how she can call him out on his crap!

Cary is back with his own set of problems, in the first novel he was a bit of a mess in regards to his love life. He wants to be with Trey, but is also involved with a woman. We find Cary continue on his journey trying to balance life as a bisexual male with an overly healthy sex drive. (Let's not forget the group sex scene in Bared To You!) It will be interesting to see what happens in the third book in the Crossfire series. Will he end up with Trey? (I'm willing to bet on it!)

Yeah... okay now what about those Sexy Scenes??? (I KNOW what some of you want to know...naughty naughty!)
Oh not to worry, like in Bared to You those sexy moments are Ahhh Ahhhhh Ahhhhhhhhh-plenty! (see what I did there *wink*wink*) If you are a fan of Sylvia Day's work she does not disappoint!
There is mile high mounting, concert kinky, more limo lovin', sexy showers..... you get the picture!
When Eva and Gideon are not mad at eachother... oh who am I kidding? Even WHEN they are mad at each other they are still screwing each other senseless.
There is talk of kinkier sex (think swings and things) but we have yet to see that actually happen. I'm banking on book three.

Two Words To Describe Reflected In You: Steamy & Stormy.

 Favorite Moment:

A part of  the novel really cracked me up. It takes place in Vegas when Eva is by the pool and she realizes just how far Gideon will go to make sure she is all his. It involves hotel security and free drinks.

So ladies...gents...and whoever else is reading this blog..... Do I recommend Reflected In You?
Yes I do!!
Just remember, read Bared To You first!!

Next up in the series is the final book called Entwined With You.
Can't wait!!!

Happy Reading!
