Review: 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 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…

Avery’s Thoughts About the Book


This is the book I was waiting for in the series! Entwined With You is the third book in the Crossfire series and the first book where our main characters really seem to find their stride with one another. They still have issues, obviously, but Eva’s back and forth has really been dwindled down to a minimum. I’m glad too because after two books of it, it was starting to get old.

Now that the characters have their own groove, it’s really allowed the rest of the story lines to blossom. Things with peripheral characters are becoming much more pronounced and interwoven with Eva and Gideon. This is the book where they really start building a life together and stop living their lives separately.

The tension is still there and things are not perfect in loverville, but the walls between Eva and Gideon are falling. He still cant get a handle on not being high-handed, and that bites him in the ass left and right, but the reasons for his control freaky nature are becoming more and more clear.

One thing I will say is that the ending seems very abrupt. As I was nearing the end, I started to get worried because there were not enough pages to tie the story up organically and I was totally right. The ending should have been flushed out a bit more. Luckily, earlier in the day, I had purchased the fourth installment in the series, so I was able to just breeze right along with the story.

I felt that Entwined With You was the best book in the series so far. Much darker story and more suspense than the previous two books. The steamy factor is jacked to the ceiling, too. These two characters may not be able to get their shit straight outside of the bedroom, but behind closed doors, they were made for each other.  No doubt.
