Title – Entwined with You
Author – Sylvia Day
Publication Date – June 4, 2013
Series – Crossfire, #3
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…
I love that as I delve deeper into the Crossfire series, it’s increasingly becoming more action-filled. Don’t get me wrong, I love the romance aspect because let’s face it…I’m a Gideon lover. However, it’s started to feel like there’s a secondary driving force for the novel and their relationship. Entwined With You is the third book in the series and has brought up a whole new slew of issues for Gideon and Eva. Sylvia Day is getting better and better, and I don’t see me ever wanting the series to stop.
“Angel, a crowd of millions couldn’t hide you from me. I found you once. I’ll always find you.”
The hero and heroine spend a majority of this novel apart. They’ve had to turn down the lust factor and rebuild their foundation in many ways. Due to everything going on, Eva has had to learn to trust Gideon in a completely different way than she did. She was forced to listen to her gut and her heart, rather than seeing information the way that it was presented to her. However, in figuring this out, she also grew a backbone and became a much stronger female than she had been in the first two books. Gideon isn’t so changed from the strong, alpha male that we have come to know. What set him apart in Entwined With You, was that protective factor he developed for Eva. It’s one of my weaknesses in a hero, and when I could see the justifications for his actions, it made me really fall deeper for him. I appreciated that he was attempting to slowly fight his demons and overcome all the obstacles that had previously stood in his way. It’s not an easy feat to accomplish, but readers could certainly tell he was trying.
“You were with me. The whole time. There wasn’t a second that passed when you weren’t on my mind. You own me, Eva. Wherever I am, whatever I’m doing, I belong to you.”
Though Sylvia Day could have easily ended the series with the way she wrapped up this book, I have to say that I’m glad she didn’t. I’m anxious to see how this couple continues to overcome their past in order to build a future together. There is something about Eva and Gideon that, in some ways, I can relate to, that I can sympathize with. There is no doubt that Day is a tremendously talented writer. The way she can mix raw emotions with character growth and development, laced with romance and suspense, is quite a feat. I’m truly anxious to see where else she decides to take Gideon and Eva on their journeys to becoming whole – both separately and together!
