Entwined with You by Sylvia Day

 Entwined with You by Sylvia Day

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 recognised 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 by Sylvia Day

This is the third book in the Crossfire series, and totally incapable of being read as a standalone – read this series in order!

The story arc in Entwined with You is not as strong as in the first and second books, as it resolves some things (this is the one for the romantics!) but goes on to set up the fourth and the final books in this series.

I like the Crossfire books in a way I’ve never liked another series like this. Fifty Shades is NOT my thing. I enjoyed some other “alpha hero with money” themed series, but never have they hooked me the way this one has. It’s imperfect, but it’s addictive, and where heroines in other similar stories are no more than mindless, useless dummies for us to imagine ourselves as, Eva is well and truly capable of standing up for herself.

To be honest, my absolute favourite part of this one was when Gideon tried to insist on Eva coming to work for him. Unlike in other books with doormat characters, he did it for two reasons: because he saw them building a future (and an empire, really) together, but also because she impressed him so much with her work. Eva held the power here, and Eva was getting things because she deserved them, not because she was a Mary Sue.

To be honest, I could have most of the sex cut out with this series and be fine with it, because what I really like is the dynamics between Eva and Gideon.

However, if you pick this one up without reading the first two you’ll be hopelessly spoilt with major storylines, and you’ll also be hopelessly lost. If you’ve made it to book three you’re in it for Gideon and Eva – just as I am – and you probably don’t need persuading to read it.
