  1. D500 - I do agree with you ;) Gideon did have penetrative sex only in f..p.d - but we know that, don't we? :)) I was invested in this series too. There was magic in it - the unhealthy, unreal, but very strong attraction between Eva and Gideon (like addiction), his possessiveness, protectiveness and need for control (all what was in book 1-3, and still in 4th) is this what we really loved. We as readers loved that Gideon have been in love with Eva through his whole life... because all above made this love story special and unique. We loved the idea that he changed for Eva.

    That's all what is the most disappointing in OWY.

    Now: the Crossfire Series is romance like many others or worse ( I dare say that the Haker Series by Meredith Wild is much better).

    Ok maybe what happened in the picture wasn't the norm for him. I know nobody but Eva new the reason for the hotel room. Maybe when he was out that night he was being hounded by his friends, they would think nothing of it . I know most of the time you can't convince Gideon to do much. But we don't know what happened that night, we only get a glimpse. 

    Im definitely over thinking it, I'm sure. But who knows :) 

     In OWY: at first Gideon doesn't know where and when he met girls...so this behaviour wasn't unusual to him...I think that is clear there.

    what is so upsetting about the picture, is that Gideon said he only had sex (of any kind) in his hotel fuc**ad.  He even took Corine there and stated in OWY he couldn't spend the night at the hamptons with her because of his nightmares and  he couldn't f**k Corine there.  Like how shocked he was with himself in BTY when in his office he kissed Eva and almost got carried away.  He said in my GD office in the middle of the GD day.....In CBY he said he may not rent out Eva's apartment again because it held so many fond memories.  The first time that he couldn't wait to get her to his pad.....he remembered putting his hands and mouth on her ( and he had never done that before).  Through out the series he maintained that personna and to see (imaging) in that photo what he was doing is quite disturbing.  What is truth and what is not?

    Yep, that's incoherent thread :)


    1. I think that editors didn't oversight. I think Sylvia Day wrote this on purpose. (She is,  after all, very experienced writer, maybe not with series about one and the same couple...and probably that is the main problem here).
    2. Of course that is Gideon's club, but that fact doesn't change anything (the private man would never played with girls in night club - because always it is a chance that somebody will sneak up and will see what he were doing - that is quite simple, isn't it? What kind of man in control would do that? Really? )   Readers are not stupid.
    3. And Monica...who belives in her story? After 1-4 books we only new that she needs money very badly, and that she loves Victor. In OWY: we are learning that Stanton's bodygourd are keeping information from his boss, very dangerous information - I may add - no one in their right mind would do so (because - helloooooooo - she killed her first husband). She is potentially dangerous for her new husband. ohhh...and the best  - she has got millions - and she still need rich husband for her sister...(it is the explanation for her actions) ...that's ridiculous, don't you think?


  4. I've read hundreds or maybe thousands of books in my life - so when I see something like that, I take it exactly as it is written. Sometimes authors write INCOHERENT stories. This one is one of those (for me).

    There is so many better books written by other authors.....so I am ok with that. I lost some time for the Crossfire series so that is what really bothers me. (I've read it, because 1-3  books were interesting and quite unique)

    P.S. Some threads in OWY are improbable....

  5. I think OWY give us clear answer to that question, don't you think?


    Please, don’t forget that thoughts and opinions about main character’s should be validated by their acts (not their own thoughts).

    I could think that I am the queen of the world, my boyfriend could think that I am queen of the world, but that doesn't make me queen of the world (especially if I am a hillbilly).

    Gideon think about himself as possessive and private, Eva think about Gideon the same, but ...

    Good morning everyone :) 

    This  is when I hoped Sylvia would have commented and explained the situation . It is very confusing . I agree that his actions were very different from what we saw in the other books. I know it all comes down to control. Which of course we all know he has to have . But if he really did act like that before Eva , it would  change my whole perception of the first couple of scenes  with the two of them. Ugh !! Very confusing . But I love them and Sylvia , it's her story to tell . I probably have to come to terms with never getting the answer. :( 

    You have all the answers in OWY. That's quite clear.

  7. " I bet the club she envisaged was in New York (after all if Gideon were to follow through he'd have to be near the f**pad), and in NY there will be plenty of VIPS who do want a good level of privacy. "

    I am so sorry...but that is not correct - if the level of privacy was good, how somebody took the picture? (there is no answer, because that doesn't make any sense).

    "We don't know if the photo was taken looking through a door at them or from above.  "

    We know that. The photo is described in OWY. (There is not any "through a door" in OWY or "from above").

    In NY night club are the same as in any other places, besides if it was in the room, there would be written "room" not "booth", don't you think?

    I think the OWY is the answer to question about Gideon's sex life before Eva. There is no point to imagine something, that isn't written there. Sylvia Day isn't the first author, who changed main character's personality. That is always disappointing (but authors have the right to do so). We thought that Gideon was very private and possessive man, and now we know that he wasn't. Isn't that quite simple?

    Did anybody see Sylvia Day News, Sylvia Day releases last Crossfire novel. Can fans move on? I would like to know what everyone thinks.

    I loved the Crossfire Series. After OWY I don't care anymore about it. I am so dissapointed, that I won't re-read OWY. So yes, I've moved on already. I am reading  something else (New Species - L. Dohner).

    No, I didn't see Sylvia Day News (like I said: I don't care).

    Thanks everyone for discussion. It was nice to talk about the book.


  9. Drunk Gideon is unlike the character we've read about before, too. There is no believable explanation. I would really like to get any explanation from author or editors, because maybe Gideon wasn't private and possessive man or in control with women (before Eva) - maybe he only think about himself that way?? Maybe what we really loved about the Crossfire Series as readers wasn't never there...

  10. clarifying:

    “Who’d followed me into a club one night, into a private VIP area, and taken pictures?”

    “A U-shaped sectional sofa. Black velvet curtains. A half-dozen bottles of top-shelf liquor on a low table.


    A private VIP booth.”

    booth - not room....=semi-public

    Gideon isn't wonder even how someone take the picture!




  11. How you explain this: " I knew my angel well. Indulging her closet exhibitionism was a complete 360 turnaround for me, and although it still amazed me when I thought about it, I didn't mind in the least.  "

    Gideon was with his friends....and with 2 women...

    and supposedly... he was always possessive and private man

    and always in control??

    You have to see that's completely incoherent??
