Reflected in You by Sylvia Day
Crossfire, Book 2
Reviewed by Miranda
Gideon Cross is a dominant alpha male. He takes his life by the reigns and he’s used to getting everything that he desires. There is nothing he wants more than to possess his beautiful Eva but between them they have enough problems to derail the finest train. However, both Eva and Gideon are desperate to hang on to what they have together. Will Gideon and Eva find their happily-ever-after or will the obstacles between them become greater and drive them apart forever?
The second book in the Crossfire series, Reflected In You picks up where Bared To You left off. If you can’t handle hot sex, sublime emotion and superb writing then I suggest you hunt for something else because Sylvia Day’s Reflected In You surpasses this reviewer’s expectations in each category. It was hard for me to imagine a book bringing as much raw emotion and depth as Bared To You did but Ms. Day slays the erotic genre with her original characters and candid emotions in Reflected In You.
Gideon and Eva may be messed up emotionally but they both know that together they are stronger. Unfortunately, the demons of their pasts keep surfacing, attempting to tear them apart. I so love this couple! Their intensity and passion make me ache for them. I want so badly for them to be able to work through the traumas of their past and present to find peace. But we all know nothing comes for free and Gideon and Eva learn the hard way that they will have to work for what they truly desire.
There has never been a couple that affected me like Gideon and Eva. Ms. Day brings magic to the pages with this couple. Reflected In You forces the couple to face some terrible truths and it also shines a light on the dark side of the human psyche. We all change when we enter relationships especially the ones that last. Sometimes we have trouble controlling our baser instincts such as jealousy and paranoia. I think Ms. Day does an excellent job of displaying a human most basic emotional makeup. The truth is some of us handle our feelings better than others. Gideon and Eva explore the darker side of relationships; the side that most of us don’t like to look at but that doesn’t mean it’s not there. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The honesty of the Crossfire series characters is unparalleled. The good, bad, beautiful and ugly are all on display as Gideon and Eva struggle to find themselves as individuals and as a couple in Reflected In You. Gideon and Eva admit that certain things about them are messed up and they are attempting to fix them. It’s hard but it’s their drive to change themselves for happiness that really sets this couple apart.
While I wait impatiently for book three in the Crossfire series I hope that many readers find their way to the store to add Reflected In You to their must read list because it shouldn’t be missed. If we had a star system here at Joyfully Reviewed Reflected In You would absolutely be a TEN! We don’t do stars here. We do recommendations and that is why I am Joyfully Recommending Reflected In You for November!
