From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside–so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat.
No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.
Entwined by our secrets, we tried to defy the odds. We made our own rules and surrendered completely to the exquisite power of possession…(
I LOVED this book. To be honest, when I first picked it up and started reading, I was nervous it would be another book with sex on every other page. It had a lot of it but somehow, Sylvia Day has me more connected with the characters. I felt more in depth with them and able to read it and feel for them.
The ending felt a bit rushed to me. Like, the author wanted to throw that last part in for the heck of it. BUT the drama that came out in the end had my flying through the last few pages. I needed to know what happened and of course, Sylvia is going to make us wait for book #4 :) Which is fine, makes FINALLY reading it worth it!
I highly recommend this series. I didn’t like Fifty Shades of Grey for many reasons and this is a wonderful substitute. More realistic.
Give it a shot.
