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

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'."

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.

Seriously, of the top 10, three are 50 Shades, 2 are these Sylvia Day books, and one is that twin thing. And one of the others is JK Rowling, and she says c*nt a lot in that book and many ladies have written Harry Potter porn, so she pretty much counts too.

HP porn ... Gah

This stuff all I read ... I scour amazon for the free reads ... Some of the free ones are HAWT ... I found vampire series for adults with adults in it ... I've read those 4 books Prolly 4 times in the last few months ... Only the 1st book was free but the others were less than $10 ... So worth it

I am bothered by fanfic that doesn't adhere to canon, and that includes tone and rating level. When fanfic is of the Wide Sargasso Sea variety - filling in gaps that the author of the original work left in an interesting way that illuminates the source text - I think it has enormous literary value. It's readers engaging with the text, just in a different way. If you're just going to porn up something that wasn't porn in the first place, sigh. Well, ok. The problem is that the tone difference means that nothing ever reads comfortably. There's always a wrongness, and it's a wrongness that gives me a queasy feeling.

If your talking about the 3rd Crossfire book you have to wait until May 7th 2013 because she is still writing it.

I hope this means there will be a 4th book.

If you like steamy and a good story try Beth Kery.

Wicked Burn by Beth Kery is one of my favorites she can tell a story and write a hot smexy scene in a book.

You did pre-order it as a Dec release date but she is still writing it and she didn't want to cause another uproar with a staggering releases date like Reflected caused.

Reflected was handed into late to meet the release date that the ebook had which was Oct 2 and the book release Oct 23.

There might be a fourth book since she is still writing Entwined she doesn't want to stretch it out but doesn't want to rush and pack it all in one final 3rd book.
