I loved every, single moment of it!

If I had custom ordered this book straight from the deepest book desires of my heart, it could not have been any better.

Gideon Cross (oooo even his name gives me shivers) and Eva Tramell are one of my TOP favorite book couples ever. It was absolutely beautiful to watch a couple who were just so messed up but who wanted, with every fiber of their beings a

“I’m caught up with you, Eva.” With his head tilted back, Gideon pulled me down for the sweetest of kisses, his 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.”

I didn't read this book - I devoured it!

If you liked Bared to You, there is no doubt that you are going to totally love Reflected In You. We rejoin Gideon and Eva right where we left them at the end of the first book and the story springs into life im

But it was SO fucking clingy and I dont even have the right words to say how effing clingy it was It was so like I need to fuck you because I am an insecure person, for both of them.

This won't be a greatest hits review.

2.5 stars. I apologize in advance. I actually spent an hour typing out a review, hit post, then decided to scrap the entire thing and start over because I didn't want to subject you all to my extreme ranty side that comes when I am so wrapped up in the negative that I fail to see the positive. The sarcasm was out in full force tonight. There were to be no fun headers or witty scripts. It was just a rant-o-rama with a side of 'fetch me my gun.'

Review posted on 10/16/2012

At first, I wasn't quite sure how I felt about Reflected in You by Sylvia Day. Honestly, the beginning of this novel drove me crazy. It reminded me of the Fifty Shades trilogy by E.L. James. In addition, Eva was a whinny pushover and Gideon was a silent, selfish bastard. Their relationship was basically at a standstill for the first half of this novel. They avoided all of their problems
Review posted at: Swept Away By Romance

4.5 Stars!! No shades of grey here…Sylvia Day writes in full blown TECHNICOLOR! She paints Eva and Gideon’s intense, passionate, tumultuous relationship, in rich vivid detail. Just when you think their troubles are behind them, think again!

“You’re the greatest risk I’ve ever taken.” His pressed his lips gently to mine. “And the greatest reward.”

I was on the fence in the beginning about the plot. I found myself wondering where this was going, and willing th

Totally bared. Our pleasure reflected in each other.

Gideon Cross and Eva Tramell, together for less than a month, both seriously broken, are trying to build a relationship.

This is the highly anticipated sequel to Bared to You following on the next morning where the first book left off.

This is in my opinion a more polished and professional book than Bared to You. A fairly impressive installment. And I'm surprised that I liked it as much as I did. The relationship, the characters, the childhood s

3.5 stars. 2-stars for the first half, but 5-stars for the ending. What started as a VERY FRUSTRATING story does end up with a great twist, so glad I stuck with it. Looooved the ending, but this story should have been titled “Head Games”. It really reminded me of that popular rock song ...

"You know what happens when you run, angel." Gideon nipped my lower lip with his teeth, and then soothed the sting with the caress of his tongue. "I catch you."

Gideon Cross is one smooth EVASIVE motherfu**er, this book only solidifies that fact.
Reflected in you has Gideon and Eva trying to move forward in a relationship that seems impossible for them to uphold. Their passion for one another is like a Tornado. A Tornado that is un

This is My very first long review. I really don't expect it to be good but I will try my best.

I am combining two books in a five book series written by Sylvia Day. First let me say this: Sylvia Day is an extraordinary writer. At least I think she is. A lot of you may disagree with me and that is fine. Everyone has their own favorite authors for every genre.

Sylvia Day is what I call an " Erotica Specialist", yes erotica is is a romance with explicit sex. The way she writes, she can put erotica

… “For better or worse, he was my soul mate. The other half of me. In many ways, he was my reflection…”

I devoured this book. It’s filled with angst, insatiable raw need that’s intense and a love that’s obsessive and exclusive. The chemistry sizzles and each scorching hot love scene is remarkably filled with an intimacy that’s palpable.

Reflected in You begins right where the first installment, Bared To You left us. Eva and Gideon are still struggling with the demons left over from a ho

This review will be short and to the point. If ya loved Bared to You then you'll love this story. If you're not a fan then get gone.

Reflected in You is appropriately named for Gideon and Eva. Reflected in each other is Obsession, Jealousy, Possession, Love, Addiction and Heartbreak.

Gideon has STAMINA! I could never tire on how "big" his STAMINA is. Once again, I love the visuals my mind conjured up.

Ms. Day writes awesome sensuality and smokin' sex the shower(my fave)

Holy sh*t! What an amazing book! I've had nervous knots in my stomach and have bitten down all my nails over the last three hours. What a fabulous second book! Can't wait for the final book.

Reflected in You is the second book in the Crossfire Series, the first being Bared to You. These books have been compared to Fifty Shades, but they are one thousand times better than those books. You still get the sexy screwed-up billionaire alpha male who comes off as so controlling it borders on stalking. H

I am going to review this within 30 minutes of finishing it because honestly, I cannot spend anymore time with this book. I apologize, for this is going to be a bit of a rant. Not my normal forte but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

Let me first say I LOVED Bared to You...LOVED IT! But this book just fell flat. As flat as my forehead is from banging my head against the desk, wall and Nook while reading it.

★★★★★! Reflected in you (book 2). The continuation of Gideon’s and Eva’s epic, spellbinding & addictive story with suspense, challenges, self-discovery and their intense dysfunctional love!

“The only way I’m keeping my hands off her is if I’m dead. Find another way to fix us.”

Best experienced, The Crossfire series is Gideon’s and Eva’s epic love story, both broken, flawed and co-dependent and yet so determined and relentless for their elusive happily-ever after. Follow them through

Damn books that make you feel like a yo-yo. It's so addictive. And damn you Gideon Cross. I've fallen for you yet I don't know why. I hate how big of an asshole you are, I hate how you've treated Eva. I understand this installment, but I have many questions. All beginning with Corrine. I.DO.NOT.LIKE.HER.

Again this is an old book, I'm behind the times here. Review will be short and simple. I'm loving this series, one i'd so recommend to you if you haven't read it yet. The characters are so well b
"We were together because we were addicted to each other."

If Sylvia Day's Crossfire series were a drug it would be categorized under the same shelf as some of the worlds most potent drugs. My Kindle was nearly glued to my face while reading this book and I could not put it down from the moment I started. Like Gideon Cross, I went hard and fast with this book and needed to read it like I need air to breathe. REFLECTED IN YOU had me completely enthralled and Sylvia Day left me transfixed on Eva

Update: 9/8/12! The "fake" review has been removed. I hate that it was bugging me so much, but I can't help but get rankled by the idea the pub or amazon or anyone other than a legit customer left a review for the purpose of selling pre-orders.

I loved Bared to You, so I was highly anticipating Reflected in You. There were things I loved about this story, unfortunately the things that frustrated me far outweighed those.

We pick up the Eva and Gideon’s intense story right where we left off in Bared to You. They’ve got past some of the Corinne drama, are seeing a therapist jointly due to their abusive pasts, and settled in for the long haul. Or so we think. From the get go we have possessive and controlling behavior on both sid

This book really put me through the wringer. It made me hot. It made me angry. And sad. Hopeful. Emotional. Confused. Frustrated. And I mentioned hot, right? After I finished the story, I jumped on Twitter in need of social-media therapy and someone asked me if I liked it. I found that question hard to answer, because it wasn't as simple as that. There were parts that were hard to like because they hurt. But I can say without hesitation that I was completely engrossed. I sat down, started readin ...more

Well, this one will teach me not to doubt you, Sylvia Day!! Those slow and annoying bits in the first half are completely forgotten and forgiven, and I bow to your authorial splendor! Hold onto your hats, kids, 'cause this one is a bumpy, angsty, lusty, desperate ride. Sylvia Day broke out the magical writing pen for this one. Damn, woman, did you ever!

I was awed by Reflected in You. There is no way to put into words the impact Gideon and Eva had on me in this book. So many secrets, so many insecurities. But, in the end, so much love.

My emotions were all over while reading Reflected in You. I hated Gideon for how he was treating Eva and making her feel like he was using sex to make up for his short-comings. I hated Eva for being so dependent upon Gideon and not standing up to him. I loved Gideon f

One of the best series sequels ever! Sylvia Day has outdone herself with Reflected in You. Best of the Best! In Reflected in You, Gideon Cross develops into a dangerously powerful and dark alpha male that takes us on an emotionally charged ride with Eva. Sylvia Day could have written Gideon as the popular generic cliche - the sexy, rich "Christian Grey" character with lots of power and kink, and we probably would have loved it, BUT SHE DIDN'T. Gideon Cross kicks Christian Grey's ass. He's so lov ...more

“If I lose you, Eva, … I have nothing. Everything I’ve done is so I don’t lose you.”

I have never so anxiously awaited for a sequel like I have for this one. It is no understatement when I say that I was literally counting down the hours to its release date, desperately clinging onto the little snippets that the author fed us along the way. And, for me, it was definitely worth the wait.

Eva and Gideon’s relationship is still relatively in its early stages. Their love for each other is all-cons
