My Rating: 4 Stars
*takes calming breath* I have never been so mentally and physically exhausted after reading a book. I have used the term roller coaster in the past with other reviews, but that just goes to show I had no idea what I was talking about back then. This. Book. Will. Exhaust. You.
Reflected in You, starts off exactly where Bared to You ended. We find Eva and Gideon desperately trying to find an even level footing in their relationship. But, not only do they have both of their pasts to get over, they also have every possible outside force coming at them full steam ahead. Every time they had a calm moment, everything seems peaceful and you start to think that this could be it... maybe things will calm down. BAM! Something else gets thrown at them.
If you read my review for Bared to You then you will know that I am not Eva's biggest fan, unfortunately that really hasn't changed. She has continued to make some of the stupidest decisions I have ever seen. Her insecurity and hypocrisy truly knows no bounds. However, she did make me chuckle a few times. Eva has a thing where she flips people the bird when she doesn't have a smooth comeback. This honestly made me laugh out loud several times. I actually liked seeing a fun side of her.
Gideon as always is the star of the show for me. He is the reason I love these books. He is also a saint for putting up with Eva. However, there were a couple of times that I wanted to yell at him this go around. But in the end his grand plan all came together, and I understood why he was acting the way he was. He is as always, sex on legs. There is no other way to describe this man, he is the ultimate.
The sex is well and truly on fire in Reflected in You. Even with the constant up and down roller coaster ride of emotions, you can always count on Gideon and Eva to have good sex. That will never change. There is also true emotion, I mean how could there not be between these two? Everything is amped to the highest degree with them.
So, I am now ready to tackle the third book in the Crossfire series, Entwined With You. I will again end this review with a prayer that Eva grows up. Granted, I didn't find myself wanting to kill her quite as often as I did in Bared to You, but I can easily say we are still not BFFs.
