The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts, and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires…
From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside–so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat.
No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.
Entwined by our secrets, we tried to defy the odds. We made our own rules and surrendered completely to the exquisite power of possession…
OMG, Gideon killed Nathan, Eva’s evil step-brother who raped her multiple times, and someone is covering up his tracks. Why, no one knows, but Gideon realizes that nothing comes free.
Eva meets up with a former rock-star-wanna-be who is also a former lover from years past and now he is a famous rock-star and has written a song about Eva and Gideon sees her kissing Brett and all hell breaks loose and Gideon beats him fiercely in front of plenty of witnesses and then of course gives Eva the cold shoulder. So what does Eva do-she thinks she’s an awful person and doesn’t deserve to walk in Gideon’s shadow(she really doesn’t think that-but almost). Nothing is ever his fault-she is always the one to blame.
We find out more about his abuse as a child and who lied about it and why. We also learn that his former fiancée, Corrine, is hounding him because she realizes that he really is interested in another woman, Eva. This causes a lot of trouble between Eva and Gideon because of her jealousy.
Cary is 1) beaten to a pulp by Nathan, 2) trying to makes relationships work with Trey and Tatianna AT THE SAME TIME and 3) surprised and scared when he finds out that Tatianna is pregnant. Poor Cary.
Gideon convinces Eva to marry him secretly and then has to rush to the hospital where Corrine is rushed after swallowing a bottle of pills and loses a baby.
With all this turmoil you would expect the book to end on a sad or ominous note, but it ends on a particularly high note, so that tells you that BAD THINGS are coming.
Starting the last of the series tomorrow. Can’t wait.
