if you liked fifty shades...

If you liked Fifty Shades of Grey, and you're looking for the same type of erotic guilty pleasure, but with writing that is well, better, look no further than Sylvia Day's Crossfire trilogy. The first installment, Bared To You jumped from self-published eBook to Berkley published paperback very quickly as it's popularity shot through the roof.

As the story starts, Eva has moved to New York from California where she's taken a new job at an ad agency. She has a typical meet cute with Gideon, the deliciously wealthy, and just plain delicious owner of the building she works in - and sparks instantly fly. I know this storyline sounds very familiar, but give it a chance. Gideon and Eva are super dysfunctional, and don't really belong together. Hello, been there. They both know this about themselves and are trying to find a way to make things work. No matter how hard Gideon tries, Eva keeps running away. Both are very jealous and extremely possessive. Gideon has never truly committed to a woman and Eva's past has her feeling extremely vulnerable. These aren't characters that I envy by any means, but the sex is good.
