Sylvia Day has done it again. She can seriously write a sensual and sexy story. She can also write with a lot of emotion and show us a damaged side to her characters that you can easily connect with.
REFLECTED IN YOU picks up pretty much where BARED TO YOU left off. Gideon and Eva are dating and have been going at it like monkeys, staying mostly at his place after the mess with Cary.This is a difficult review to write because there were many things that I liked about the book and some that I wish I would’ve liked better.
Gideon is hot and dominant and sexy as all hell. This book will make you fall in love with him all over again, in spite the fact that sometimes I felt like clubbing him over the head. He’s comfortable in a suit and boardroom as well as jeans and t-shirt at a concert. He’s willing to fight for the woman he loves and to keep her by his side. Although, I have to say that if it had been me throughout the book that he would talk to like he did…I might be in jail for assault charges. But once things are revealed at the end, all was forgiven.
How Eva stood up for him. My heart broke completely for Gideon when he finally opened up to Eva about his past. And I just loved that she went on that little rampage and put everyone in their place who had ever messed with Gideon’s life.
The sex. Yes, I said it. The sex. Because wow, just O.O WOW! LOL At the concert, in the bathroom, in the limo. Gideon is a God and he knows what he’s doing. I’m so jealous of Eva.
Eva grew a pair of balls towards the end of the book, which I thought was fantastic and made me jump up and down because I was totally on her side and rooting for that to happen. I had been complaining throughout the book that I wanted her to take more charge and see some growth, and I finally did get that.
The storyline in this book was excellent. There were enough normal conflicts between Eva and Gideon while also having a small mystery element after Cary gets attacked. I actually didn’t expect that to go down like that.
I feel that a measure of healing started happening in this book for both. And although it seems sometimes things have to get worst before they get better, I can’t wait to see where Ms. Day will take us in the last installment of this trilogy. Anxiously awaiting.
“I found myself pinned to the hallway wall by six feet, two inches or hard, hot male.”
“It was a look that screamed SEX. Hard, deep, endless, mind-blowing sex.”
“You’re the greatest risk I’ve ever taken.” He pressed his lips gently to mine. “And the greatest reward.”
“Gimme that coffee. I want to be caffeinated when I kick your ass.”
“You know…I love you madly.”
“People get over love. They can live without it, they can move on. Love can be lost and found again. But that won’t happen for me. I won’t survive you, Eva.”

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
