Reflected in You by Sylvia Day
This is the second in a series called Crossfire. Reminds me a lot of the Fifty Shades books.
There's a very good review here. Here's part of it:
Eva and Gideon are two very screwed up individuals. Eva has been in therapy for years to recover from abuse from her step brother. Gideon has night terrors that cause him to attack Eva in her sleep, nearly raping her. Their relationship is neither tender nor sweet. It’s volatile and crazy with huge swings of emotion.
There isn’t necessarily a plot in Reflected because this is a character driven, relationship driven story. They both want the same thing – to be together. However, neither of them have been in healthy relationships and thus have no past experience from which to draw. They go to therapy together but tell the therapist that the only thing that is off the table is for the two of them to stop seeing each other. Problematically, their behavior (mostly Gideon’s) prevents the two from achieving stability.
