Bared to You (Crossfire, #1)
Jun 26, 2013
3.5 stars - I'd give it 4 for the writing (Most of it anyway. The Gideon is so perfect repetition made me want to gag) and characters with real issues, not just contrived "I'm a bit clumsy and I don't think I'm pretty for no real reason" sort of issues. You know who I'm talking about. It doesn't get 4 b/c I feel like you can pop out Eva and Gideon and pop in 2 other characters that shall remain nameless and you have almost the same book, though Ms. Day is a far more skilled author. I know romance and erotica are formulaic in nature, but c'mon. Some of the arguments b/t E and G moved so swiftly, got resolved without being resolved that I was left thinking, "ok, what just happened?" And that abrupt out-of-nowhere ending kinda pissed me off. I get that it's part of a series, but isn't there an art to the cliffhanger? Shouldn't you feel, at the moment, a partial completion. Hey, part one reached it's resolution, but there's still more to the story. Sorry, but ellipses on a nothing sentence, right after a huge turning point doesn't do it for me. Here's hoping part 2 is an improvement.
