Review: Entwined In You

Author: Sylvia Day
Publisher: Berkley Trade
Pages: 368
Rating: 5 Stars 

Synopsis: 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 knowns 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...

I really cannot wait for this book! I completely devoured Bared to You and Reflected In You (I'll be posting reviews soon). In the meantime, I have been thinking about rereading the first two books in order to be prepared for the release of this one. It feels like it has been forever since we have heard from Gideon and Eva.I have been so completely drawn into this story, and I am so looking forward to finding out what is coming up next for Gideon and Eva.

Review: I wanted to start off this review by saying that I absolutely loved this book! I have seen so many negative reviews about this book, and I'm not entirely sure why. When I first picked up Bared To You, this was going to be a trilogy, and now there are an additional two books being added to the series. I'm happy about that. With everything that has taken place in this book, there is no way that Sylvia Day would have been able to finish of the series. It would have been far too rushed. Personally, I'm really looking forward to the next two books! 

I don't want to go into too much detail, and I do want to keep this spoiler free as this the third book in the series. If you've not read the first two books, I suggest that you pick them up! 

Entwined With You picks up right where Reflected In You has left off. This book really focuses on continuing the relationship between Gideon and Eva  and all of the hurdles they have overcome and the next ones that they both must face. Gideon and Eva have such an intense and passionate relationship. Given everything thing that these two characters have been through, I get all of their actions in this book, and I respect them for it. For as intense and passionate as their relationship is, they are able to talk to each other about their struggles, and I think that really helps to further their relationship.

Eva is definitely one of my favourite female leads, and I really don't say that too often. Given everything that she has gone through, she still manages to stay strong. Gideon and Eva are so perfect for one another, and as much as he has helped her, she has returned the favour and helped him in return. With that being said, I absolutely love Gideon.  He's such a powerful and dominant man, but at the same time, he's broken and vulnerable, and like Eva, he has so much to work for.Eva is always his first and foremost thought--he takes care of her first, and himself second. 

Much like Gideon and Eva's realtionship, this book is filled with heat! It is such an intense read. There were some really hot scenes, and I could feel my face flushing. Despite all of this, it never once overshadowed the story.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book,and Crossfire is one of my favourite series! If you haven't checked these books out, I highly recommend this series!
