Reflected in You by Sylvia Day #BHBC

I am really excited to be posting my first review for the BlogHer Book Club! I reviewed Reflected in You by Sylvia Day. It is a #1 New Year Times bestselling novel and is the second book in the Crossfire series, the first is Bared to You. Can I tell you a secret? I didn't get a chance to read the first novel. Now telling you that I want to also say that Reflected in You was easy enough to follow without reading the first book. I will be reading Bared to You very soon.

Here is the blurb about Reflected in You

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 am not even sure where to begin. Both of the main characters are wealthy with Gideon owning tons of businesses, building etc in New York City. Eva has a high end apartment which she shares with her best friend Cary (who is a guy). Eva and Gideon are both struggling from horrible sexual abuse in their pasts which seems to bring them together but also at the same time drives a wedge between them. Both are very infatuated and totally obsessed with each other. They can't keep their hands off which makes for some steamy sex scene. Gideon has a very dark, mysterious way about him not letting Eva know much about himself or his past. He is also very controlling or dominant.  

This is a very seductive novel. I would find myself thinking Eva don't let him be like that with you but they again I could feel myself falling for Gideon's darkness.

I highly recommend starting with Bared to You so you will be able to follow better with the couples history but you can easily pick up Reflected in You and be hooked. When I read the last couples pages I was really caught off guard with the ending and I was right away thinking - I can't wait until the next book comes out which is called Entwined with You. 

Come join in on the discussions at the BlogHer Book Club for Reflected in You.
