I'm glad I read this book, it's definitely a million times better than the 50 Shades books.
That being said: holy dysfunction Batman!!! Both Gideon and Eva are completely F-ed up from their pasts, and although they are both committed to making a relationship work, I asked myself WHY so many times throughout this book. Why did they keep hurting themselves and each other, why did they want to stick it out when they both readily admitted the other person drove them crazy? I just had a really hard time buying their relationship.
I did like Gideon a little more than Eva. Although he hadn't dealt with any of the crap from his past, he seemed a little more stable, but not by much.
An interesting read, that's for sure!
