Book Blurb

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…



Talk about hot sex & drama, this story was filled with it. “Entwined With You” takes you on a rollercoaster journey of ups and downs of so many obstacles coming Gideon & Eva’s way. From their exes and their families, to their individual pasts, so many obstacles stood in their way. At many points i the story, I felt sorry for them. Sometimes it felt as if they couldn’t catch a break. Whenever things started simmering down or seemed to be going well, something else or someone else always popped up to stir things up again. But then again this makes for a very interesting read!

I’ve read all the books in this series and I will say that “Entwined with You” is my favorite out of the series so far. One thing that I loved about this book is that Gideon reveals his secrets. He’s not as secretive and keeping things so close to the vest like he was in the other two books. He opens up more and fully lets Eva into his heart. I liked Gideon in Books 1 & 2. But I love him in “Entwined with you”!!! I feel like they’ve both come a long way in realizing each other’s strengths, weaknesses or insecurities, etc… The only problem I had with Gideon is that I didn’t like how he still feels some sort of obligation to Corinne. I didn’t like that scene in the hospital towards the end and how he wanted Eva to leave. He lost some points there with me. And then let’s not forget about him being a killer. Having killed Nathan leaves me feeling like I don’t quite know how to feel about that or him. On one hand its almost endearing that he loves Eva that much to kill for her. On another its still like….well HELLO HE’S KILLED SOMEONE!

The sex was extremely sexy. I think my favorite would be the Mile High scene when they’re on Gideon’s private jet. You can feel the love, passion, and the intensity of their feelings just jumping off the pages. Descriptions were very vivid and it felt as if I was right there going through all the ups and downs they were experiencing myself.

One thing I liked about Eva in this book too is that she was stronger than ever and knows herself more than ever. I liked seeing, at times, how she’d take control of situations. It felt like a breath of fresh air since Gideon seems to always be the main one in control of so many things.

The reporter Deanna got on my last nerves! She was manipulative, sneaky, conniving and just an unlikable character all around. She was a total opportunist too…. along with Corinne. I never trusted Corinne as far as I could throw her and when it’s revealed towards the end of her pregnancy, I just about lost it jumping to conclusions thinking it was possibly Gideon’s.

I’ve always loved Cary. He’s such a fun, sweet, life of the party to me kind of character. I was rooting for him to end up with Trey rather than Tatiana. I just feel Trey suits him better, and suits all of them better as a whole. With him becoming a father soon with Tatiana pregnant makes me think that’s going to change Cary drastically. But I feel like it’ll be a positive change and make him even more grounded knowing he has to set an example for his child. Eva’s mother got on my nerves at times as well but I think her intentions are good. Sometimes, people can have good intentions but not execute them in the best way. I think Eva’s dad was such a sweetheart. It was heartbreaking seeing how much it hurt him to find out about Eva’s past. And with Gideon’s parents, I’m still a bit confused on why Gideon’s mother seems to dislike Eva.

Another character, Brett, I liked. He seems like a decent guy but I thought he was a bit too pushy in that he wouldn’t take no for an answer. I also kept wanting to shake Eva to be more assertive with him and not just agree to meet up feeling like she couldn’t say no. That drove me crazy! I felt like it wasn’t respectful to Gideon to meet up with an old flame even if she doesn’t have feelings for him anymore. I thought it was playing with fire…. too close for comfort and I just wanted her to not have any contact with Brett whatsoever.

All in all I think this was a great book. I loved it! And I look forward to the next installment of Book 4 in the Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day.
