Book Review: Reflected in You

November 8, 2012 at 9:42 AM Leave a comment

The latest BlogHer book club choice, Reflected in You, is the second in the Crossfire series. The book takes readers on a romantic and often volatile journey through the lives of ultra-wealthy fictional characters Eva Tramell and Gideon Cross. The series is rated for mature audiences because it contains quite a bit of explicit sexual content. I’m talking crazy over the top sex scenes.

Penguin publishers provided all reviewers with a copy of the first two books in the Crossfire series. I enjoyed reading Bared to You, the first book in the series, as it introduces you to the two main characters along with a host of other peripheral characters. Some of the characters are interesting, like the crazy male roommate, but others feel a bit stereotypical in nature. The gay boss and wealthy parents didn’t have much depth to their characters.

Unfortunately by the time I started reading Reflected in You I grew tired of the characters and the plot of the story. The second book in the series feels a bit redundant. As a reader you learn more about the character’s pasts and there plausible futures, but the book takes on a rather boring repetitive nature as the characters play out similar scenarios and emotions over and over again.

If you are going to read any of the books in the series I suggest skipping the second novel and just reading the first. Having said that I will say that you don’t need to read the first book in the series to understand the characters and plot in Reflected in You. I know some series work that way, but without reading the first book you would be able to follow along with the plot of the second without any problem.

A third book in the series is scheduled to release in May of 2013.
