Hello guys. I guess it has been a while. Oh, who am I kidding? Of course, it has been a while. Okay, so I just read the crossfire series, and it would be selfish not to share my review. Or should I say my thoughts on the crossfire series?
May you have come across the Crossfire series by Sylvia Day? Because many people compare it to Fifty Shades. And honestly, they’re similar. I stumbled on this book during my search for the last series of fifty shades, and I have to admit. The crossfire series kept me in my feelings from start to finish in a way.
The plot, the setting, the climax and don’t get me started on the hot Gideon Cross. Yummy.
Book Description of Crossfire Series
The Crossfire series has five novels in it all together:
Bared to you (1)
Reflected in you (2)
Entwined with you (3)
Captivated by you (4)
One with you (5)
You can read every book as a stand-alone. But if you want to get the most of it, just read all the crossfire series. It’s either you love it or get tired of it. With each book, the characters developed and had plenty of sex. It got to a point the sex scenes weren’t all that arousing. The subsequent stages were things that were expected.
Synopsis of Bared to you (from Amazon)
Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness-beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so quickly…
bared to you
Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires. The bond of his love transformed me, even as I prayed that the torments of our past didn’t tear us apart.”
bared to you
This series centred on Gideon Cross, a possessive wealthy billionaire and Eva Tramell, a young heroine. The crossfire series is told from Eva’s perspective. Eva comes from a rich home, but she decides to work for her money, so she moves to Manhattan.
She meets Gideon, and there’s chemistry between them. The Crossfire series have been compared so many times with the 50 shade series. Some say it’s a rip-off of fifty shades and others love it. Okay, so here are the significant similarities between Crossfire and fifty shades:
– A young billionaire in his late 20’s
– Hero is controlling and possessive
– Still maintains a platonic relationship with his ex
– Hero suffers from childhood trauma, making him have a dark soul.
– Sex, hot sex, sex again, plenty of it.
– Absence of BDSM
– Both characters need each other to heal equally
– Both characters are damaged.
-Gideon rapes in his sleep
– No period sex. Eew
If you love dark erotica, then the crossfire series is for you because it has so many sex scenes I repeat so many. The sex scenes in this book were so many for me, and at a time, all the excitement was gone, and it got boring to read those parts. I skipped a lot of sex scenes in the book.
Here are some must-read Mystery Books to try.
Also, the book talked about rape and how a rape victim could get addicted to sex. I found it appalling that the main characters mostly solved their problems with sex. I doubt if there was a part they sat to talk out their differences. Nevertheless, the story had a solid plot, and I had a good read with this book.
You can get the crossfire series on Amazon, Barns and noble or simply download it for free on a PDF drive.
