The descriptions of the first two novels in the Crossfire series are as follows:

Eva gets immediately attracted to him and develops feelings that she never ha for anyone else in her life. She used to crave for his touch in order to get past her wounds of a terrifying past that kept haunting her. Gideon knew that Eva is attracted towards him. He too had feelings for her and wanted to have a romantic relationship with her. They both used to forget about their past while spending quality time with each other. Their presence would act as a healing drug for each other and they prayed that their past never comes in between their relationship. The novel was listed in the New York Times bestselling novels’ list as one of the most erotic and adult romance novel in the year 2012. It was self-published by Sylvia Day initially and got republished a few months later by Berkley Books. It sold more than 500,000 prints in the initial run in English language internationally.

The same group from USA declared it to be one of the biggest breakouts of the year.

The second novel of the series titled ‘Reflected in You’ continued to show the sensual saga of Gideon and Eva. This novel was pretty much anticipated after the success of the first installment of the series. Just like the first novel, this one too was listed on the New York Times bestselling list and was considered as an erotic portrayal of romance between Gideon and Eva, that should not be missed by anyone. The novel describes the character of Gideon Cross as a flawless and beautiful young billionaire. But he is still in the fear of his terrible past and remains weakened from the inside. He appeared like a bright and scorching flame to Eva, who was filled with dark pleasures in his presence. She was not able to stay away from him, she neither wanted to. He had become her addiction and she started considering him as her own, someone who could fulfill her desires. Eva was also portrayed as a disturbed young lady. She also had a violent past and was broken from inside. The two would never come close as they considered to be very hard and painful.
But when both of them felt the desire and it was hard to resist, they would flow with the moments of the driving hunger and indulge in the adult romance in trying to fulfill their desperate desires. Their love would take them away from all their pains and they had very much become each other’s need. The two would often move into a sweet world of obsession. The success of the novel brought a lot of appreciation for the author Sylvia Day. It topped the list of a number of bestseller journals, including New York Times, Washington Post, Sunday Times, Der Spiegel, Wall Street Journal, Irish Times, Canadian Booksellers Association and the Publishers Weekly. The author has mentioned that the novel focused on the journey of love and not the destination. She was praised for her efforts and rewarded by many organizations for the uniqueness of her novels. This novel too is in talks to be made into a television series by the Lionsgate Television Group. The success of the novel motivated her to write few more novels and she has announced that a couple of more novels in the Crossfire series are ready to be released soon.Book Series In Order » Characters » Crossfire
