After reading the 50 shades of grey and becoming a big fan, I heard that bared to you was similar and instantly bought it. After reading the first few chapters you really liked the characters and the relationship of Gideon and Eva ,however, that's where it ended. There relationship was confusing and not realistic. I didn't feel like they were in love or had anything to believe they where a couple. I don't enjoy reading about two people that are not loved up. I suppose I am comparing it too much to 50 shades, but if you was obsessed with that you will. I will read the next book to see if there relationship picks up.
I've been waiting for the release of this book as i was a serious fifty fan. however i found it to be nearly a twin of fifty, the main characters names are similar too! Ana/Eva, Christian/Gidoen. However that being said i did enjoy the second half of the book as it started its own independent storyline. but overall extremely dissapointed. i was put off by the fact that so many reviews on the book compared it so deeply to fifty and now i see why, she tried to use the exact same storyline. i will not be buying book two in october and this book is definitely an offence to fifty. and a clear duplicate of somebody else's hard work its like an artist attempting to cover a track and add a new vibe and it failed for me. i will not be holding onto my copy.
I downloaded this to an e-reader as I had finished the 50 Shades trilogy and I had read that it was just as good and the style was better. I have to say, although I enjoyed it, it wasn't as good as I'd hoped. It wasn't as captivating as 50 Shades and I didn't feel that I connected with the characters as well as in the trilogy. It's an "ok" read and has filled the gap, but, in my opinion, not as good.
This book is HOT! I downloaded this to my E Reader as I was looking for something else after finishing 50 Shades and I have to say - this book is SO much better.Eva is just such a fantastic character - I actually found her a lot more convincing than Ana in 50 Shades, as she's stronger and knows her own mind. Both Eva and Gideon have suffered in the past and are the ultimate star crossed lovers. I found it to be a deeply intense and romantic novel, beautifully written and well crafted. I can't recommend it highly enough.
