Entwined With You by Sylvia Day
From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside–so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat.
No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.
Entwined by our secrets, we tried to defy the odds. We made our own rules and surrendered completely to the exquisite power of possession…1
And so the story continues. Although we seem to be building towards some sort of finale and dallying less in the fits, we still follow a bumpy path. Eva and Gideon delve deeper into their relationship, as Eva’s passed continues to get in the way. When Eva’s old flame, newly famous rockstar Brett Kline, confesses his feelings for Eva the obvious chemistry between the two is still there; although nothing in comparison to what she has with Gideon. He has his sights set on Eva and the lingering determination is left hanging .
Gideon does not let us down as his past also gets in the way and adds new obstacles. Women from his past are all vying for his attention, but he only has eyes for Eva. All of this thrown in the mix of drama between her mother, father and best friend Cary add quite a bit to keep the story going. As more and more gets added to the mix, there are subtle foreshadowing tidbits thrown in. An upcoming weekend getaway where Eva and Brett Kline will be in the same city and Brett still vying for Eva’s love. Eva’s co-worker and friend Megumi suddenly becomes ill, calling in sick with no explanation or contact with Eva. Gideon’s ex-fiance Corinne continues to be a source of drama. A baby thrown into the mix for one of the characters. wedding bells, sex tapes and investigations. The number of pages dwindles as you hope for things to wrap themselves up, only to find the book ended, with a promise of a fourth book.
I was really hoping to wrap things up here, but on the bright side, the fourth novel is not out yet so I can focus on some other books until then. Interestingly enough they plan to make a TV show based on the Crossfire novels. I imagine it is more TV friendly than Fifty Shades and has the possibility of longevity with the amount of characters and interactions, as well as adding new story lines and issues. Still I can’t quite seem to picture it. The series is starting to become one of those where a spoiler summary from someone else would be sufficient enough, rather than to take the time to read them for yourself. Unfortunately, I am starting to lean more towards recommending that you do not read this series (soon to be quintet), as I trudge along bravely for you.
