Books as good as the Crossfire series

Recommended Posts

Forged in Steele -  I will finish that tonight and then I'll be waiting until Dec for #8. 

 

Again I needed tissue.  I love these rough, macho guys who so love their women.

 

Hi Sharon, 

I am still compiling a master list of erotic novels and authors.   It might make it easier for everyone to have one thing to download instead of several postings.

 

I didn't include the other literature.  Do you think that it would a second list of non-erotic literature should be included as well?  Let me know what you and the other ladies think.  Thanks. 

 

I think a master list is great.  I have a spreadsheet that I am working on too but I haven't had time.  At the rate I'm going, I will need an extra long vacation and a winning lottery ticket to get all the books I want to read.  I like different genres so I won't object if you add non-erotic to the list.

Hi Sharon,

I will do my best with the non-erotic list.  Unfortunately, unless someone specifically states that said "book" falls under one category or another, I am not sure which is which so I will do my best.  I am aware of the major or best selling authors, but I will rely on the good forum members to state which is which (which many of the members have kindly already done so).

Sure thing! The book overall was good, its just that ending is so unexpected but i still dont know if its in a good way or bad way but im not a person who lets an ending define how good an entire book is so overall its good!

 

Me too!

Hi Everyone,

Another forum member suggested these books so I thought that I might add them here:

 

  • Sylvain Reynard:  Gabriel Series
  • Gabriel’s Inferno
  • Gabriel’s Rapture
  • Gabriel’s Redemption

Hi GiGi

I just finished the first two books from the Gabriel Series last night. Really enjoyed the story. The third is not out yet and there is no date announced.

I havn't read or watched the movie of the twilight series, but I have read that this series also came about via fan fiction like FSOG.

I have now found out the third is due December 3.

I liked the story and I have been to Italy so knew the places they talked about well. The sex is more romantic than gideva which is raw and passionate.

Enjoy :)

Gone Girl is really good! I know many people hated the ending though.. I was a bit annoyed with it  but got over it! lol

 

Insideofclouds,

 

I have heard a lot of people talk about the book Gone Girl, but no one has told me about the book or what kind of book it is or anthing.  I don't want to ask you to give me a book report (unless you want to) but would love to hear a little about the book or at least what kind of book (romance, mystery, sci-fi, etc.) this book is.  I have one friend who read it and all she would tell me is that it is nothing like FSOG, which really tells me nothing.  I would love some info, thanks.

Well she's right! Lol its mystery and suspense. Since I suck at summarizing books without practically telling the whole story I copy and pasted the blurb from goodreads. It does a much better job than i ever could. So here ya go!

Marriage can be a real killer.

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?

Julie,

 

I loved this book, I was late on the take to read this book too.  I hope that you will read Jo's story, "Down London Road" and then Ellie's "Until Fountain Bridge."  Ellie's story (I believe) was not released on paper, but it is really good.  It is more or less a trip down memory lane, but it is still good.  I am glad that you too decided to read Samantha Young's books.

Thanks, that does sound really good, I think that I will have to order it.  Is it a solo book or is there a previous book or a sequel?

I didn't realise that Ellie's story was out. Looking forward to it. Loved the relationship between Braden and Joss. Braden was a bit of alright. :)

Hi Claudine, 

It sounds absolutely delicious!  I am sitting and waiting with anticipation for the book to arrive! :)

Hi Sheens, 

Do you think that is because Gideon and Eva's storyline was so strong?  What do you think?

Hi Ladies,

Have you ladies ever read a book (or series of books) and found the storyline so compelling that any other book which might have a similar format doesn't quite measure up?  Basically I am asking; once you ladies read a great book(s), do you ever find yourselves comparing said book to the one(s) you absolutely love?  What does everyone think?

Hi GiGi

Yes I do compare. Especially if I am left feeling deflated at the end or there is an aspect of the story that I think if not included/went in a different direction could have made for a much stronger storyline. Then I think back to stories that I love and know it is in a different league.

At present I have only found a few authors that match up to the fluid and thoughtful style of SD. Some come close, but aspects of their story make me turn away. I like drama in a romance, but at times there is only so much a couple can take or a person can forgive.

I am finding as the genre has become really popular there are some book sellers promoting books as being rated no1 or better than... And then when I read them I can see there is a very big difference between them and the ones I love.

I hope this makes sense.

Reading books in bed is usually said to be sleep-inducing.... You'd better try SD's books and see!!!

Hi GiGi,

 

Yes I have. I read FSOG first and thought to myself, this is good (not great because of the inner goddess repeats) but when I went looking for new books to read, I found Sylvia Day and have been comparing her books to any of the new authors I have found. I are currently following about 8 authors that I prefer to read. Sylvia Day is my top choice. Nothing so far can top the Crossfire Series.

 

Of course that is just my personal opinion. I think everyone has their own style of reading whether it be the same type of reading or multiple choice like historical, paranormal, fantasy etc.
