First book in the Crossfire Series ... 2nd book set to drop 10/31/12 and 3rd one on 12/31/12, approximately ...

If you liked 50, your gonna love this series ... I think it is much better written than 50, and in some parts ... I get the feeling it is just the start though ...

It is not a great work of literary work/art by no means, I read it cause it is fun and entertaining ... and well erotic, so I don't give a damn about the writing so much ...

I will say that they do not repeat themselves near as much as Ana/Grey, they wear more clothes than a plum dress/gray pants ...

I love 50 though, I removed all the repeating and put in my own words ... I gagged her inner goddess(and the other one) ...

And Matt Bomer is not Grey ... Matt Bomer IS Gideon Cross ... just so ya know ... and yeah I won't see this movie either if they make into one ...

So I was going to give these books a go, but I don't know how long it's going to take me not to "*snork*" at the fact that his name is GIDEON CROSS.

Did you get over that pretty quickly?

Unless I'm wrong, Sylvia Day wrote "In The Flesh" under the pseudonym of Livia Dare.

Now-let's just keep this among ourselves- but "In The Flesh" is one of the best romantica books that I've ever read. I'm reading it now on a suggestion from a friend and it's pretty fantastic.

Is this considered a thread-jack? I'm never sure.

You are not wrong. Everything she writes is excellent.

So. Much. Semen. Though. Seriously, you better like you some semen if you're gonna read you some Sylvia Day.

Gideon, though, has become one of those Julian/Adrian/Gabriel/Raphael names. So overused.

And booger bear, never apologize or self-deprecate for what you read!

Semen, yes, but a deluge of body fluids of all types. Glorious deluge.

I've never seen the word "slick" used more anywhere, ever.

I read this book over the fourth of July, on vacation. I honestly cannot remember it at all... weird.

Someone remind me please. I think I didn't like it as much as the 50 ones, but I don't remember why???

sheesh

Ha - just finished reading this last week and can't wait for the other 2 books to drop!!!! The writing is leaps and bounds better than the 50 Shades books.

The ending was to say the least. Love this series and Shades doesn't even compete.

If you have an e reader device you can download it. You are going to love it if you loved Bared. I think its better than Bared and I love that book. Re read it more than 7 times.

Is there an ARC out there or something?

Wrt Kindle, sometimes there are multiple copies with different release dates. Last year around this time I got the third Maiden Lane novel a week before NA because I had pre-ordered one that somehow had an earlier release date.

I still have not read this, and I love Sylvia Day. I dunno. I think it's the first person POV. I will suffer through it for Kristen Ashley, but...I think maybe Gideon came across kind of nuts in the chapter or three I read, and knowing it was first person I knew I was not going to get to see inside his head so he could explain himself to me. I like intense and obsessive as much as the next girl (well, maybe not, actually) but only if I get confirmation he's not a freaking lunatic. There is a fine line between "omg he wants me sooooo much, let us feast upon his delicious and unwavering focus!" and "The last time I saw this behavior described it was in 'The Gift of Fear'."


It nagged him, in particular, that none of the girls hed known so far had given him a sense of unalloyed triumph.

Sequel debuted at #1 on the NYT bestseller list! The fact that half the NYT bestseller list is ladyporn just...it warms the heart, brings a tear to the eye. Some totally rando thing with twin guys *one of whom owns a strip club* *like a Magic Mike strip club, not a gross girly one* is like #9 or something.
