AfterburnThe realization that Jax still affected me so strongly was a jagged pill to swallow He'd only been part of my life for five short weeks two years ago But now he was back Walking into a deal I'd worked hard to close And God he was magnificent His eyes were a brown so dark they were nearly black Thickly lashed they were relentless in their intensity Had I really thought they were soft and warm There was nothing. Arks fly sex ensues lots of arguments and running away lots of secrets lots of misunderstandings I liked the characters and I liked the plot but I felt that it was too repetative The arguements were the same and with the same outcomes and there was nothing else to concern ourselves with no minor subplots that I cared about alongside whether Gia and Jax would et it on that night I felt like it needed to be longer and developed but at the same time if it had been left as is and not padded out with depth and detail then I m Rescuing Gus glad it wasn t drawn outOne further criticism was the beginning in which Gia and Jax meet and she thinks he doesn t remember her even though they spent five weeks as a couple really Just because she was wearing a business suit Come on You can rarelyo wrong with Sylvia Day That s how awesome she is to me Unfortunately I read this while I am still high on Gideon and Eva so the comparison can t be helped While Jax s insatiability reminds me of how Gideon is with Eva which is 100% yummy Gia is nothing like Eva which can be a Class of 92: Out of Our League good thing But only if she is better than Eva For me she isn t While I find Eva s headstrong as charming Gia is just annoying I like Gia just fine when she is on her own But when Jax starts to be in the picture Gia s stubborness at times just screams of wanting of attention Thankoodness this series is just a short one Had it been a long series like Crossfire I think I would have think twice to remain loyal to it I loved the book but it was so short I d love a GideonEva style series based on the two of them JaxGia are so perfect I think they deserve their own series and if not a series then at least a proper novel Give me Ms Day There s no denying that Sylvia Day is a consummate skilled writer who crafts passionate charactersBut Jax never deserved Gia after jilting her for two years in order to protect her His reasons were superficial and flimsy Gia laid herself out on the line only for him to tread all over her efforts including his world of elites He did what he had to do right at the end but it felt overdrawn and over exaggerated And this didn t make it okayDozens I ve damn near been a monk since I met you Two women Gia Two And since you fucked two Portrait of a Starter: An Unhidden Story guys you veot no room to talk I m entitled to those two as pointless as they were With eual footing I can handle other people However she had a reason to move on and he didn t I wanted someone willing to plunge in 100% Who didn t allow the irl he loved to try and placate herself with other men Who didn *t justify himself having sex because she had *justify himself having sex because she had uys Rather he underestimated her conviction shattered her expectations alongside stringing her along She was weak when it came to him and lot of her sass was simply talk I wanted resentment and rovel Jackson and Gia don t make the cut against Gideon and Eva And his Gia baby just pissed me right off sorrynotsorry iwillstillwatchthemovie imahypocriteThis is the movie review I thought I d add it albeit 3 years later It just proved to me that the Crossfire series must never
"be made fifty "made Fifty of Grey and this movie can attest to that When I say I cackled I ot second hand embarrassment from their acting It s a Passionflix movie but his acting Bless them they tried she was believable Sadly for the uy some lines read well in books but they should never be verbalised Christ I want you Mine I ll worship you My cock inside you He said CACK Christ it has to be Christ Christ What did Christ do to you Ahahah His actual voice and intonation was very nice though masculine and deep The only scene I enjoyed was the one with Sylvia Day as a customer at Rossi s And when he said Fuck this isn t a oddamn romance novel GAGGED Ah Some Moonrise good ol fashioned comedy I think they were new York accents and it kind of reminded me of my family which also ended up annoying me at the same time I don t know I blame work again Afterburn Aftershock was an interesting audio to listen to yesterday The main character kind of reminded me of one of my aunts once she started talking in her normal accent In it you will meet Gianna and Jackson They used to date or sleep with each other or something like that Then they actually started to sleep with one another It was definitely a second chance at love if you ask meNow they had some drama in this book that Iuess could be called interesting in a way but it was predictable and kind of boring to listen to I just feel like it was mostly drawn out and I kind of just wanted them to admit that they loved each other Fallen Angel: The Passion of Fausto Coppi get married and have lots of babiesEventually that happened and they also started torow on me The ending was cute enough that it left me satisfied but I m mostly happy that it s over On to the next book Bleargh 275 stars.
