  1. Earlier
  2. Excluding The Crossfire Series and Afterburn/Aftershock, what other Sylvia Day book would you like to be made into a movie? For me it would be a tie with Seven Years to Sin and In the Flesh. I think both would be amazing. If Passionflix were to make all her books movie's I would watch them all, but those two are the one's I enjoy.
  3. I read Sylvia say that she think's Jax from Afterburn/Aftershock was the most arrogant character she ever wrote. When I read On Fire I thought that Jared Cameron had to have been the most arrogant. But it's later revealed in the book that he isn't However, I thought the ending was a little predictable and I was able to guess who was setting the fires before it was revealed.
  4. I noticed Sylvia seems to write a lot about people who have known each other for a while and with Blood and Roses it was no exception. Despite it being a shorter story, it was really well written and I enjoyed the fact that she mentioned Gideon in there more than once. If you haven't read Blood and Roses yet, you need to.
  5. Taking the Heat is probably one of my favorite Sylvia Day stories. I've read it twice and even though I already knew the ending I couldn't help but feel a little heartbroken for the character's and what they go through. Has anyone else here read it?
  6. I've read Razor's Edge twice and it is such a good story. As someone who tried to look after a friend and her daughter after her divorce, I can understand where Jack was coming from wanting to help Rachel and her son. I can also understand what it's like not really having any family around and being somewhat of a loner like Jack is as well. Usually when a girl reads books she can find a female in the story she can relate to. Jack happens to be the only guy I have come across in Sylvia Day's stories that I can relate to more than the girl.
  7. Pretty interesting trailer. Still reminds me of a Lifetime movie but at least I get an idea of how they film their movies. As for Tyler and Caitlin, I am giving them a chance. I don't like it when people jump to conclusions before they even watch the trailer, let alone the actual movie itself.
  8. I really don't think Sylvia did it intentionally either. I think the first Crossfire book came out shortly after the Fifty Shades books did. Nobody seemed to realize that it takes a while to write a book, have it edited and released so chances of the first Crossfire books already being written before Fifty Shades was released is a huge possibility. I also believe Sylvia when she said she has never read any of the Fifty Shades books and her Crossfire Series came from an idea she got while writing another one of her stories.
  9. I have been looking at the photos that Sylvia has been posting on her website....they need to give Tyler Johnson a better haircut. When it has that "messed" up look it makes him look like a goofy dork. Caitlin Leahy looks like a pretty good Gia. Looking forward to watching the movie, will keep an open mind and give the actors the benefit of the doubt. keep posting Sylvia
  10. There's a You Tube video trailer for the Hollywood Dirt movie which is the first output from Passionflix which will give a flavour of how the films will look. If you've read the book the trailer will make sense.
  11. I only know what the author herself has written on her web site: Lionsgate optioned the rights to the Crossfire saga in 2013 and renewed the option twice. After three years of development, Sylvia declined to option again and she presently retains the adaptation rights. She eventually expects to find the right partner, but for now, the Crossfire series is no longer in development. I know things in the film and music industry can move slowly but three years just 'developing' without casting and filming of a story that exists seems a long time. As to similarities between the two stories well of course there are, as there are with a lot of the books of this genre. It can't have been easy to finish the last two books after the full publication of the Fifty Shades books, with the past comments about similarities, and ensuring any idea Sylvia had that ran along the lines of what happened in Fifty were not put into the Crossfire books. I do not like the idea of bdsm (and Christian turning out to be a sadist) so was pleased that despite some early hints that Gideon might have such inclinations, the books didn't turn him into someone who got off on physically punishing the person he loved. Could you see Eva kneeling in submission!!!
  12. I'm not too familiar with Passionflix but if they are filming now and it is going to be released in November that doesn't seem to give it much for the editing part. I'm wondering if it's going to end up being like some Lifetime movie (which I don't normally enjoy). As for the actor's, while Tyler isn't exactly what I imagined Jax looking like, I still find him a better fit then Caitlin Leahy.
  13. When IMDB still had their message boards, people would sometimes post about the Crossfire books since there are similarities between them and Fifty Shades of Grey on the Fifty Shades boards. Before the boards were taken down, someone posted about an article that claimed the TV series (or movie) wasn't going to be made because the filmmakers wanted to tone it down while Sylvia wanted it to stay true to the books for her fans. I haven't heard anything else about this, but if Passionflix is going ahead with Afterburn/Aftershock then maybe they should go ahead and make Crossfire as well.

  15. I thought Treasure Hunters was a good short story. Without knowing anything about the plot, I read it and I thought it was well written. I also liked the fact that Sylvia mentioned the leading lady in the story had curves and was fuller than most. I also thought it was cleverly written because it talks about all erotic books vanishing and when they are found it has a lot to do with what was happening with erotic romance books when they were first officially getting started. I'm trying not to say too much for those of you who have not read it yet. Anyway, I liked the story.

  18. I found a video of her. She seems nice https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJivPhsXi8s
  19. Jax will be played by Tyler Johnson http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1459008/ Gia by Caitlin Leahy http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4255296/ From the many comments on Facebook some are happy with the actress but not one seems to like the actor. Personally feel they can't be judged until we actually see them in the role rather than just posing for a photograph. If ever Crossfire gets to be filmed I dread the comments that will be made about whoever is chosen to play Gideon, doubt any of us will be happy (no point wishing for Henry Cavill or David Gandy as they are now too old to play the part).
  20. If I have interpreted one of Sylvia's latest tweets correctly the casting will be announced on Tuesday.
  21. I guess updates will be on the website, Twitter and Facebook once known. Website link http://www.sylviaday.com/homenews/while-we-wait-for-casting/ (Sylvia did confirm she's pretty much finished writing So Close so fingers crossed we get news of that soon).
  22. I was wondering when we would be finding out who got cast as who. I'm sure no one here knows yet but does anyone have a idea about when we might hear something?
  23. I remember some discussion over why the fact Mark was leaving would mean Eva would lose her job and we did not come to any conclusion as to why. It wasn't as if Mark's role was redundant, he had been approached by another company so his role still existed so one would have expected him to be replaced and Eva work for his replacement.
  24. Eva also said she wanted to go back to school so that she could be a better sounding board for Gideon; so she wasn't becoming his"lapdog ". Never could understand how she could lose her job when Mark left? Couldn't she be an assistant to someone else?
  25. Re Eva I think we have to wait to find out what she became. The indication seemed to me to be she would be taking on the charitable side of Gideon's world and I would image we will find out when the books about Ireland are written. She knew that Mark was moving to work for Gideon and for whatever reason her job would no longer exist when he left so her quitting wasn't a total surprise.
  26. I agree. The same thing happened to Eva tramell. She started out as a strong and independent young woman but became Gideon's lapdog as as the story progressed. She quit her Job and became a New York socialite who is married to a billionaire.
