Average novella, not great but enjoyable all the same. Proceed at your own risk but don't waste a credit on it.

I LOVE this series

Sylvia Day is a genius. A pure genius.

I love this series. I adore Eva and Gideon and the fact that they are not just one dimensional. They both have personal battles to face but never let personal problems overshine their love for one another.

This is my favourite book of the series, it is fun to listen to Eva/Gideon sneaking around and having to be coy. However, Sylvia Day never lets secondary characters slide and her supporting cast are well-rounded and well-developed.

10/10 would read again (maybe even tomorrow).

I'm going to be frank -- this book is not serious.

Yet I have listened to it multiple times because it is HILARIOUS. Every re-listen I am in hysterics -- a little awkward when I'm on the train.

I really enjoyed Chloe as a protagonist -- she was very headstrong and never afraid to stand up for herself. I felt as though she may have overreacted but it's a small oversight. Bennett is really a bastard, but I'm a sucker for beautiful bastards in romantic novels. Plus, the sex scenes and OHMAHFLIPPIN SEXY *drool* but are (in my opinion) not overdone or forced.

It's not a serious piece of literature -- but who reads new adult fiction to analyse plot.
Very enjoyable, especially for an escape -- would recommend to a friend.

I did enjoy this novel. It made me laugh hysterically at many points as is classic Christina Lauren prose. However, I didn't warm to the two protagonists and their shared relationship. It felt a bit forced in my eyes.

Enjoyable but forgettable -- probably won't read again.

Crossfire....geddit? (Sorry I'm all about the puns today).

I cannot begin to explain how much I LOVE Sylvia Day and her crossfire series. I love the strength of Eva's character. She never lets herself become a victim but always fights for what she wants -- including Gideon. She's feisty, confident and fiercely independent and I adore her story.

Gideon Cross, the male protagonist is intelligent, strong and just plain SXC. Its clear how much he loves Eva and wants to have a life with her which means fighting his demons.

Sylvia Day -- she is just phenomenal. Her story is unique, angsty and kept me on my toes.

10/10 would read again.

The story is enjoyable but not memorable and can be quite jerky and crude at times. I did like the changing points of view though, it added depth to the generic romantic storyline.
