After Fifty Shades of Grey? What’s next? There was a list of books all over the web on books similar to it. I tried to stay away but my colleagues posses great persuasion skills and made the copy available.
Crossfire Series is consist of three books – Bared to you, Reflected in you, and Entwined with you.
So how did it go?
Started reading Monday and finished today. Each series is very short 500 to 700 pages on a normal font setting of my iBooks.
The story is about two person who has been a victim of child abuse and survived.
Eva Tramell was raped when she was ten years old. Got pregnant when she was fourteen and experienced miscarriage. Their wealth sealed all the evidence until ten years later.
Gideon Cross was sexually abused by his therapist. His father committed suicide which made him troubled kid and much more troubled during his supposed recovery.
They met when Eva moved in to New York from San Diego. She will start her work in a famous Ad Agency in Manhattan. She bumped in to Gideon while checking out the building she will be working.
They were both describe as very attractive. Eva is blonde with soft gray eyes while Gideon is dark-haired with blue eyes.
They were sexually attracted to one another since they first laid eyes on each other.
Conflicts arise along the story from time to time because of the conflict within the character themselves. Eva is needy, insecure, and clingy while Gideon is controlling.
They were both running away from their past. They had nightmares that is somewhat connected to one another when they sleep together. They have regular therapy session.
Interesting characters were present in the plot too. You will imagine how New York goes every single day. Press was also a freak in here since the characters were public figures.
The characters were both strong.
My favorite part would be the twist about Eva’s rapist. The only problem I met reading between each chapter and series was the transition. Everything was fast and some scenes doesn’t have a background.
Not that it requires to have one. It gave the reader the freedom to imagine the rest of the story. I notice that they were unnecessary scenes. Some confrontation could be done harder so the climax is continuous.
If I were to compare it with fifty shades of grey, I would say this has more story. Fifty shades have too many long F scenes that made me skip some pages while reading it. The only conflict there was the Jack Hyde thing.
Unlike crossfire, it has child abuse, murder, and rehabilitation. Imagine two person with dark past manage to be together. Now that’s intriguing right?
I believe that this series is not yet through there will be two more books after this. I will wait and see how the story goes.
I am not going to spoil anymore.
