Very similar to the Fifty Shades Trilogy
Review by boppisces
Eve moves to Manhattan and starts a new job. In the same building as her job, she meets the wealthy and domineering Gideon Cross. Both have been traumatised by events in their childhoods. A passionate love affair means they have to deal with past issues.Eve's frustrating neediness is quite irritating. I kept reading as I wanted to find out what Gideon's traumatic childhood experiences were. Imagine my frustration when I reached the end of the book to find out that it is the first in a series and I would need to read another book to find out. I think not!

Good god, how can Groundhog Day with abs go on for 300+ pages? I was snorting with laughter for most of the bumpy journey, but the icing on the cake was the readers' discussion guide at the end. Excellent beach or rainy day read.
Review by LaurenKathryn
Easy read and not too difficult to understand or keep up with. It was recommended to me by my sister who knew I had read the fifty shades trilogy.<br/><br/>I would say that this book, or even the series, may not be everyone's cup of tea. They might be expecting another fifty shades and, even though it did mirror a lot that series' concepts and plots, it was quite mild in comparison. It was entertaining and enjoyable in parts, but the constant arguments the characters had was giving me whiplash. They were happy on one page, arguing on the next and then making up 2 pages on! I know they all have their own demons but come on! The story never really progressed in my opinion. It's just constant arguments and sex. If you like that sort of thing then go for it, but I prefer my stories to develop, not repeat itself over and over again.
Review by v_allery
More romantic than dark, this novel explores a very new and very frightening relationship and the way it develops into deep love and genuine trust. I loved it for expoloring all those fears a person has in the beginning - of being honest & sharing dark secrets, of losing someone you fell for hard and fast... Not to mention the sex scenes, which never seem dirty, but always passionate, real, full of both love and desire.
