Sylvia Day is a NY Times best seller but this is NOT one to read in public or you may find yourself busting into giggles. Is this book that funny? Oh no, that is just what I do in awkward situations. Perhaps this is why I am a blogger & not a spy? Oh that realization hurts folks.
I only have one issue with the Crossfire Series: The main character’s name is Gideon & as an avid Charmed fan (I’m geektastic IRL) all I can think of is how evil he is. But once you get sucked in, you forget all about the creepy Charmed Gideon & get into the “I’m bad but I’m tormented” Gideon. Oh yes, he is one of those. If you enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey, I would definitely recommend this as it has a similar angsty feel but, in my opinion, better writing.
For anyone that dated a project (guilty) you wanted to fix because he was just so BAD but you knew deep down he really WAS good…this is for you. With lots of phrases like “damaged & tormented on the inside” & sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession” you should know what you’re in for. Romance at its most ridiculously dramatic. Is it something I would read all the time? No. But I do like the occasional romance read & this happened to be a good pick!
