Reflected in You (Crossfire, #2)Reflected in You by Sylvia Day
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book two of the Crossfire series takes readers on an emotional roller coaster.

Secrets from the past are revealed and new secrets are hidden. Events and people from Gideon and Eva’s past resurface causing havoc in their present and possibly destroying hopes of a future. This book has the power to leave you mentally and emotionally exhausted, but I see that as very good thing with any book.

With that said, my main issue with this book was Eva. Her and Gideon are both ridiculously high maintenance and in need to constant reassurance. Eva, however, takes it to a whole new dimension. She wants Gideon to flay himself open and reveal all the trauma of his past. He has never coped with what happened to him and has a hard time doing it now but she just can’t seem to understand that which is unreasonable. Yes, his past trauma clashes horrifically with hers but she won’t give him the time or space to deal with it.

Gideon on the other hand is so committed to her that when her past literally knocks on his door, he makes sure permanently eliminate the threat. However, when Gideon’s not too distant past breezes back into his life, Eva’s insecurity leads her to believe he has kicked her to the curb.

Eva finally takes a moment to step back and reevaluate what is going on with her, Gideon, and their pasts. Many things become clear when she thinks back over Gideon’s words and actions. Book two leaves us hanging on a precipice, eagerly awaiting the third book to see what happens next and how the events of this book will affect Gideon and Eva’s ability to move forward.
