Reflected In You [Day]

Book: Reflected in You [Crossfire #2]
Author: Sylvia Day

Review: I really enjoyed 'Bared To You' and couldn't wait for this book. I even pre-ordered it, which is something i rarely do. This book picks up the morning after 'Bared To You' ended and we continue along the ride of disfunctional couple Eva and Gideon. I was about halfway into this book when I realized...there was no real plot. It was more of the same thing as the first book-the push and pull of the main characters with a lot more sex. Don't get me wrong, it was extremely readable (I read the whole book in pretty much one sitting), but it felt more like a continuation of the first book than a stand alone book. The last third of the book did have an actual plot (and point) and we finally learned more about Gideon's past, but I finished the book feeling a little cheated. I'm looking forward to the third book and I hope Day can create an intriguing plot that grows Eva and Gideon's relationship while diving deeper into his personal demons. 

Grade: 3/5
