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.

The Review: Unlike some of you, I haven't been waiting for the release date for Reflected into You all that long, but I have been eagerly awaiting it because I absolutely fell in love with Bared to You when I read it a few months back. I was looking for something on par with Fifty Shades of Grey and Sylvia Day knocked it right on the head and if anything, created something even better. Better characters, better romance, better everything!

Reflected into You starts where Bared to You ends and if you thought you’d finally read a drama free story, then think again. Most people might wonder where the author could now take this story but don’t worry, Sylvia Day takes it to a whole new level and I’m just talking about the sex scenes. It’s beautiful,
confusing, happy, frustrating, compelling, shocking and did I say frustrating? But it’s a good frustrating. I for one, was hoping we would see Gideon become that more open with Eva, but if anything he became worse. It’s clear he’s hiding something, he doesn’t even deny it to Eva but he does tell her and us to trust him. We all know what kind of man he is and we all know how deep his love runs for Eva but we really see that love in a dark way this time around, and we see how far he’s willing to go to protect her. I for one thought it was a fantastic twist – one I didn’t see coming but the author really keeps you on your toes and even though things may appear one way, just listen to Gideon when he says “TRUST ME” because if you don’t, you will probably thinking the same as Eva. It was pretty clear there was something BIGGER was going on that Eva wasn’t aware of and of course, everyone tries to hide it from her but all I say is, be patient and you will love this story for what it is.

“I’m caught up with you, Eva.” With his head tilted back, Gideon pulled me down for the sweetest of kisses, hi firm lips moving gently beneath mine. “I’d kill for you,” he whispered, “give up everything I own for you….but I won’t give you up.” – Gideon

Eva and Gideon’s relationship really is tested this time around, and they have so many scenes that are beautiful and touching. I can’t even imagine what the author has in store for us with book three and I’m hoping it will give everyone the ending they want and need. For me, this series is definitely a favourite and I’m counting down the days until the next release date.

“I’m obsessed with you, angel. Addicted to you. You’re everything I’ve ever wanted or needed, everything I’ve ever dreamed of. You’re everything. I live and breathe you. For you.” – Gideon

I will never read the full version of Fifty Shades of Grey but I did recently give the first book of this series a go and I actually . . . quite liked and enjoyed it. It's much better than the samples I've read of Fifty Shades. The characters and the storyline are better developed you know? Anyway great review!
