From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I 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…
Entwined with You is my favorite book in the Crossfire series by Sylvia Day. Why? Because we get Eva and Gideon sans their usual drama. Well not 100% free but about 80% free.
Eva has stopped her running and Gideon is learning to communicate more with Eva out of the bedroom. And speaking of the bedroom, another thing I liked about this installment is that Day cuts back a little on the sex scenes. Yes there is still the hot sex but there was a few scenes she glossed over. One thing I feel when listening to these books is that there could be less sex. I know what you’re thinking WHAT?! The first two books are so saturated with sex scenes that I didn’t know if I could listening to Entwined with You. I want to see Eva and Gideon out of the bedroom and having more of a “normal” relationship where they talk and interact with the secondary characters more than just screwing each other’s brains out.
Day has added a great mix of mystery to the lives of the secondary characters that I must read the next book, Captivated by You. I have high hopes that Day will cut back even more on Eva and Gideon’s sexcapes to give us more plot and work on tying up loose ends with the plot twists that she threw at us in Entwined with You. I get it, Eva and Gideon has sex about 5 times a day, I don’t need to read about every time. I think that Captivated by You has the potential to be a Romantic Suspense if Day chooses to play up more of one of the angles she introduced in Entwined with You. My fingers are crossed that we get more plot with a side of steamy sex.
The narration by Jill Redfield continues to captivate me. I love her timing and voices for the characters. And Redfield really gets into those sex scenes. My face blushes with each one. I keep thinking the only thing that would make the audios better is if Redfield could have team up with Phil Gigante doing the voice of Gideon. Those sex scenes would be orgasmic to listen to.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
