Mr Gideon Cross, the hero in Sylvia Day's erotic "Crossfire" series has been spinning some dazed, confused, and lovestruck readers into a wild episode of confusion. Do they like him better than Fifty Shades' Christian Grey?
There are many indications that E.L. James' Mr Grey is still the more popular billionaire sex demigod icon. For one, Crossfire sales have yet to overtake Fifty Shades figures. Critics are saying Day offers better prose and imagery. But James had a good head start. She was first to attract erotic readers and have them turn Christian Grey into a phenomenon. Still, Gideon Cross is out there, enticing more daydreamers by tugging at some passion-driven heartstrings.
Fans casting: Henry Cavill for Gideon Cross?
Gideon Cross frequently shows up in social media channels as fans look for the right actor to play the part. "Crossfire Sylvia Day" is also being used frequently to search for information on the other sexy-romantic hero. Many readers are convinced the "Crossfire" series will also be translated into the big screen, eventually. Some of the frequently mentioned actors for the role include Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and British model David Gandy.
'Superman' Henry Cavill, who also has a strong following in social networking sites, is also a Gideon Cross candidate. On Tumblr, author Sylvia Day has a blog in which a photo of Cavill is posted with this caption: The perfect Gideon Cross - Henry Cavill.
