  2. I assumed that because they now found sex to be spectacular rather than what it had been for both of them in the past, they were making the most of catching up on what they missed out on. But I would have expected abuse victims to not rush into it quite so fast.
  3. Technically Gideon was not her employer, he hadn't given the account to them yet. she even hinted that she might be interested but wasn't going to act on anything. If we want to be realistic, I have never been abused in anyway, but how can two sexually abused people be so active sexually. You would think the act would be intolerable. Just my opinion. I really wouldn't know.
  4. It all depends on the person who is being spoken to as to whether they consider it harassment. I've not re-read those chapters so if I'm wrong let me know. Although Eva was saying no she was still interested in him and he would have realised that - in that first meeting they both had an obvious 'spark' and when Eva told Cary about Gideon she was definitely interested in getting to know him a lot better. So I guess Gideon was reacting to that when he approached her. I'm in the UK and we don't tend to go for lawsuits, Personnel/Human Resources would usually sort the problem for us.
  5. In Bared to You, he barely even knows Eva and at that point she didn't even know his first name, yet he flat out tells her he wants to have sex with her, then practically forces her to go to his office so they can talk about having sex even after she says no more than once. Then he won't let her leave until she kisses him. I know this is a romantic fiction but in reality he would have a sexual harassment lawsuit filed on him instantly. Especially with all the money that he has. Most likely it would be settled out of court with a check involved
  6. Simplest thing is to download a product called ccleaner which will remove cookies etc (but you can tell it which cookies you want it to keep) and will also clean up your computer . Just download the free version. Once the program is on your computer close your internet browser, run the program and click the analyse button which will show you a list of what it can remove. That will include temp files, some temp system files etc. Don't actually click the run button but look at what it is offering to clean up and double check if you want all that removed. Untick anything you don't want removing - there's one tab for systems on the computer and another tab for your programs and if you use Office (Word, Excel) and don't want to lose the list of the last few files you had open untick those. The beauty of this program is you can pick and choose what it removes which I find better than using the internet explorer/edge settings. I run this quite frequently but I don't use it to clear cookies unless I need to so clear them the first time you run the program (you will probably then have to sign in to most forums, websites again) but next time you run the program just untick cookies and history so they remain. Once you are happy with what it is going to remove click the 'run cleaner' button and it gets rid of all the rubbish you don't need.
  7. So Close

    Thank you for replying I appreciate it. I find Sylvia to be an excellent author and read her books. The way I interpreted her tweet was probably my imagination running wild thinking she was going to surprise us with something hahaha. I don't know anything about Passionflix, that's why I said I would wait for the DVD and I have never downloaded anything from iTunes I guess I'm behind the times. I love One With You and know she didn't have an epilogue because the story was based during a short time frame. So it makes sense for her to do that. I agree with everything you said and will wait patiently (even though I'm not patient hahaha) for the books to be released.

    Sorry for the delay but I had to change my password again to get on. I cleaned out the history but I'm not sure how to clean out cookies can you help?

    We get to see the Crossfire characters in the Blacklist books, and then again in those to be written about Ireland. I think I read a response from the author saying the book was ready for editing (not 100% sure though). We do wait a long time for the books (and I presume the 3 remaining of those mentioned are still to be written) and I am impatient to read them all but would rather wait for them to be ready in due course rather than rushed. I find there's no point comparing the rapidity of one author's output to another as they all work at different rates - some are extremely prolific but with varying levels of how good the content is. It is understandable that people want to know more about Gideon and Eva - we left them on a happy note which was great and I like the fact Sylvia didn't follow the norm of other writers to add an epilogue about the future - now we know we will hear more about them in future books this may satisfy the multitude of readers who complained about not getting that info (and about Cary etc.) (That is, of course, the readers who didn't stamp their feet and throw a 'paddy' saying they'd never buy this author's books again which to me seems a little childish but each to their own). I believe the Afterburn Aftershock movie will also be available to download from iTunes. Being in the UK I couldn't subscribe to Passionflix although in comments on Facebook I've seen that Australia gets the service soon so maybe the UK will, but I shall probably just pick the movies of the books I have really liked and download from iTunes. I think the first movie from Passionflix, Hollywood Dirt, is available from mid to late September.
  10. Hi - just checked what I wrote to admin when this happened and my issue was resolved the next time I logged in, it was when the forum was being changed to the new style so that that may have been preventing me logging in. Try clearing cookies and browser history. If that still doesn't work try a different browser - I'm using both Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge (with Windows 10) and not had problems since I wrote that message.

    Hi D500 and jmhope long time no talk to I hope you both are well. I had a friend read the Crossfire Series and she loved the first five books she wasn't thrilled with OWY she felt too many unanswered questions. I still love all of them. Anyway a couple of things have either of you heard when So Close is going to be released? I know Sylvia has been involved in getting Afterburn Aftershock finished for the movie I'll have to wait for it to come out on DVD I don't know anything about passionflix. Also Sylvia tweeted the other day that we'd be seeing Gideon and Eva again soon do you know what she meant by that? And finally my last question have you heard anything about when Ireland might be coming out? Sorry for all of these questions but I've been having trouble logging in and I can only do it on my iPhone so I'm frustrated with my laptop.

    Hi D500 I hope all is well with you it's been a long time since we've chatted. I'm starting to write here because I'm having this problem with my laptop and can't figure out why that's why I haven't been on much. Were you able to get an answer on why this is happening ?
  13. Being in the UK I can't subscribe but hope it goes on iTunes. I get your bit about the hair (in my mind I don't see Gideon with long hair either, just doesn't seem right although I did see a guy a while back on London's Regent Street who looked very good with mid-brown long hair who was pretty gorgeous and he did look business-like although dressed smart casual). I liked the short bit we saw of the brothers without their shirts . . . . . . . .
  14. Saw the trailer and thought it was pretty good. Still don't like Jax's hair, especially when it hangs in his face. Hopefully I will be able to see it on Amazon video or I will have to wait until it comes out in DVD; not going to subscribe to passionflix.
  15. Video taster now up on the Passionflix Facebook page.
  16. 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.
  17. On Fire

    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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. 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!!!
  26. 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.
