Review: Entwined with You( Crossfire #3)

entwined  

Synopsis:

The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts, and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires…

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. ( Source: Goodreads)

My review

I am going to keep my review short. As many of you know by now, Entwined with You is the third installment of Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series. This book picks up right where the last one left off. To be completely honest, I had really high expectations for this book because I really loved Reflected in You. ( I think that is why I was disappointed)  The first few chapters did keep me entertained but after that I felt like nothing  was really happening. Nothing gripping happened, they would either argue about something or have sex. This book basically explains what happened in the previous book and why certain characters did certain things. Some exciting events do occur but most of the time I found myself turning the pages hoping for something more interesting to happen.  The characters themselves have each grown a lot, which was nice to read. I guess my main complaint is how obsessed they are with each other. It was okay in the first two books but after a while it gets really annoying. Like I said earlier, I am keeping this review short. Over all thoughts: I was disappointed, I was hoping to feel more emotionally connected with the characters like I did in the first two books. As much as I enjoy reading sex scenes, I would of enjoyed it more if this book was focused more on the characters and their struggles. I love romantic novels, but there’s only so much sex and arguing that can happen before the reader gets completely bored.

Rating: 2/5. I heard there is a fourth book coming out in this series, I look forward to reading it. The first two books were amazing, if you have read them, read this one as well.

Let me know what you guys thought of this book. Which book is your favorite?

Book review: Reflected in You- Sylvia Day

13596809 Reflected in You is the sequel to Bared to You from Crossfire series.

Synopsis:

“Gideon Cross. As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction… my every desire… mine.

My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful… except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity.

We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession…”

My review

I didn’t just like this book, I loved it. If you enjoyed Bared to You then you will definitely love Reflected in You. This book picks up right where the first book left off.

I found this book to be a better read than  Bared to You,  the author does a great job of explaining some of the issues that had bothered me in the first book. One of them being how Gideon became so successful at the age of 28. ( I still sometimes doubt it)

Every book has it’s faults, both Gideon and Eva to me were way too needy. I found their relationship to bee a bit obsessive and sometimes unhealthy. Gideon’s over “protectiveness” and Eva’s insecurity definitely made this book an interesting and emotional read. Reading through the first couple of chapters, I found Gideon’s obsessive nature and Eva’s behavior immature. The second half of the book  was more interesting to read.

Sylvia Day does a great job describing each character with great detail. You can feel the passion they have towards each other and the need to always be together. After getting though the first part of this book, I could not stop reading it. As unhealthy as their relationship sounds, you can’t help but root for them. Right when you think they have overcome their problems, your wrong. Their past always has a way of catching up to them. Like usual, I don’t want to give away to much, that’s why my reviews are short. I want you guys to experience this for yourselves.

I really did enjoy this book, if you are ready for a emotional roller coaster ride, buckle up, make your favorite drink and read on!

This book can be found at pretty much any book store and online at Amazon.com
