She’s as strong-willed as she is vulnerable, as silly as she is determined and as sexy as she is smart. It’s no wonder that the elusive Gideon Cross, one of the world’s most eligible billionaire bachelors, falls for her. Hard. We have, too. Eva Tramell, the traffic-stopping heroine of Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series, is the best friend of your dreams. No matter the situation, she’s ready with a quick-witted comeback. Next time you find yourself in need of some verbal ammunition, look no further than our girl, Eva.

Here are our favorite lines of hers from the series.

 

1. “Gimme that coffee. I want to be caffeinated when I kick your ass.”

– Reflected in You

 

2. Gideon: “It’s time to discuss what it’s going to take to get you beneath me.”

Eva: “A miracle.”

Bared to You

 

3. Gideon: “You have a transportation fetish.”

Eva: “I have a Gideon fetish.”

– Reflected in You

 

4. Gideon: “Until you, I didn’t consider my past an issue. Yes, it affected certain ways I did things, but everything had its place and I wasn’t unhappy. In fact, I thought I had a comfortable and uncomplicated life.”

Eva: “Oh boy.” My nose wrinkled. “Hello, Mr. Comfortable. I’m Miss Complicated.”

– Bared to You

 

5. “I can’t bail out on Cary,” I said apologetically, turning to face him. “Chicks before dicks and all that.”

– Bared to You

 

6. “You put me through hell. On purpose. Made me suffer. And there’s no end in sight. I don’t know what the fuck you’re doing, ace, but this Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde shit ain’t cutting it with me.”

– Reflected in You

 

7. “I feel like chilling with you. I want to sprawl on the couch, and eat pizza with chopsticks and Chinese food with my fingers.”

– Reflected in You

 

8. Gideon: “I have one type: Eva Lauren Tramell. That’s it.”

Eva: I rolled my eyes. “Okay. Whatever.”

– Bared to You
