Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or 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 easily… 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 bonds of his love transformed me, even as i prayed that the torment of our pasts didn't tear us apart...

Originally I borrowed this from the library, I was thirty two (32) pages into the book when I jumped up and ran to the local Target to get the second book because the library didn't have it. So I got it so I wouldn't have to wait to read it.  Let me tell you the best decision ever because I could read from one book to the third without waiting. And I finished this book in one day.

I truly enjoyed meeting Eva & Gideon, they were both good, strong characters with depth and issues and flaws but with each other they absolutely made each other great and at the same time the worst people.  And OMGawd their private moments???!!! Sweet jeezus it's a fire!!  They did move with lightening fast speed but I guess when you know you know, and boy did they know.  I LUUURRRVE Gideon Cross, why yes I do!! OMgosh I know see why people love this book/series so much, and why they are always tweeting Sylvia about it.

Eva's background story is so heartbreaking and I'm so proud of her mother for doing the best for her daughter with a tough situation, especially when she could have pretended she didn't know just to keep the money on tap/ Instead she was a good mother and *although personally I think if she had been paying attention more she would have caught it before it reached that boiling point* did what was best for Eva. It still left her with scars though and Gideon pushed all the wrong buttons when he first met her.  I wrote on goodreads "is it ok to like a character and still want to punch them in the face??" Yeah that's how Gideon made me feel when I first met him.  Gideon himself has a pretty messed up background as well but we haven't been given the full story, I'm going to have to read to find it all out.

Imma need exes to take all the seats over there and stay out of grown folks business. Really though??*ghetto moment over*These women are doing the most especially because he isn't giving you even the slightest time of day. Just tacky.

The attraction, the love that develops, the complications of the relationship are just so well written & amazing. Ms.Day writes in a way that draws you in & keeps you glued you just want to know what happens next and how are they going to meet the next challenge as a couple & as individuals.  Even some of the side characters are interesting and have depth, 'm looking forward to learning more about them as well.

Reading Eva's and Gideon's journey to couple~dom has been wow, good and fraught with lots of danger **for others who tried to interrupt the reading, I'm looking at you mister man**.  Definitely a story I will be re-reading especially now that I own my own copy. Yeah I wasn't even into book two before I went online and purchased the other two for my own library. That's how good they are ok?!!

Make sure to check back for the review of Book 2: Reflected In You.
Burn Rubber to get it kind of series!!
Happy Reading my loves
