Entwined With You

Entwined with You

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…


7 Million copies sold! Do we need to convince you to read this book?


“Angel, a crowd of millions couldn’t hide
you from me. I found you once. I’ll always find you.” 

Our sweet Gideon came colliding back into our worlds and he stole my heart all over again. I'm sure I'm not alone in that notion. I didn't realise just how much I missed Eva and Gideon until I picked up this book. It was like being reunited with old friends, I just LOVE them!

Now, there has been mixed reviews on this book i.e. lack of progression and not enough of Gideon BUT I loved every second of it! After all the drama they have already been through in such a short amount of time, I think we needed a bit of calm. It was great to see them finally content with one another. Entwined is centred purely on Gideon and Eva as a couple and watching them as they build on their love and trust for each other. This book sweeps you into an oasis of calm, love and raw passion! Eva and Gideon belong together and together they are better people.

We see a new side of Gideon this time round. A playful edge. Which only makes you love him even more, if possible. As for the sex scenes, they are at their peak in Entwined (Chapter 9) is all I will say. Sylvia Day knows just which buttons to press to get her readers panting and dripping in sweat.  I was at work when I read Chapter 9 and goodness knows what people must have thought when they saw me blushing and fanning my face with my book . . . The men in your life should thank Sylvia after reading this book! Seriously saucy stuff. The depth and detail that Day goes into is what gives these scenes strength, as well as our love for the love between Gideon and Eva.

“What’s a little calming distraction for your girlfriend in the midst of world entertainment domination?”
“I’d stop the world from spinning for you.”
That silly line oddly touched me. “I love you.”
“Liked that one, did you?”

There is some moments that really tugged on me old heart strings and had me narrating to myself (Much to my partners displeasure), most guys just don't understand. It has to take some powerful story telling to get us readers so enthralled that we are literally talking to our books and this is exactly what Sylvia brings to the table.

As I mentioned before, Eva and Gideon complement each other nicely, they are finally at a stable point in their relationship and all we ever wanted for them is happiness. They finally have it within their grasp but some obstacles remain, along with alot of unanswered questions (luckily for us there are 2 more books heading our way). I feel like this book could maybe be the calm before the storm.

There was one moment that wound me up. The return of Brett. Eva's reaction to him had me snarling slightly. I get that Brett is this hot rockstar but come on Eva, you have Gideon and no man can amount to the passion he packs in his pants. That doesn't stop our darling Eva from practically wetting her knickers at the sight of Brett and the fact she feels the need to use Cary as a cock block was slightly aggravating (does she not trust herself around him?). Fortunately, we already know that Eva would never leave Gideon (Who would?!)

“You like sex, angel,” he purred. “Nothing wrong with that. You’re greedy and insatiable, and I love it. I love knowing that once I get inside you, you’re going to suck me dry. Then you’ll want to do it again.” 
As I neared the ending (weeping for more) I felt that my fill of Gideon and Eva had only just begun and I was sad to close the book. However my lovely Gideon lusters, we have more Crossfire books heading our way, we just have to be patient. Thank goodness because we need more time for them. Their journey continues. Keep on bringing the sauce I say. This sexy little number is gonna be hard to live up to.

I cannot explain the excitement and anticipation of finally having this amazing book. The wait was too long I'm telling you...I'm sure you all agree with me...seriously I needed Gideon as much as Eva! Counting down the days until I could reunite back into the crossfire world was hard, especially how Reflected to You ended; I was dying to know what happened next. Having picked up the book first things in the morning on the day of release (also the day of my holiday), I thought I must have it straight away, cannot wait any longer! It felt good...warm and exciting having Gideon back in my life!   

Entwined With You was wow...I'm saying and totally awe... Gideon and Eva's love story has just reached another level. However, like Gael said there has been quite a few mixed feels on this book, the pace of the story was slower, thinking It was Gideon's turn to review all his hidden secrets but looks like the amazing author decide to take a different turn and let us guessing, hanging and waiting instead. 

Nevertheless i still love this book, It felt like Gideon and Eva was taking time off from the world around them and just enjoy their little bubble of the love they share. A time freeze just for the two of them to rebuild, reuniting and restoring the love they have, that they once thought was lost. Instantly, you can feel the fireworks in the air when they were together, you would never know they were out of love.... just deeper in love for the reason behind the heartbreak Gideon put their relationship in. At the same time there was a few unexpected twist into the story, maybe not what you expected but kept you hooked into the crossfire world even more.  

“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.” 

Ahhh Gideon...what can i say...he is definitely one of my favourite fictional man by far! That man just got hotter and sexier in this book, seriously I don't know how...The stuff he says and do, will have you melting on the spot. Love playful Gideon...wishing he's was mine...he is more at ease now, now he and Eva have a better understanding and trust in each other, the charming side is showing even more. That man Is sex on stick! hot, steamy, saucy and lots of mind blowing sex scenes in this book...the passionate details the authors describe, makes you feel like you're right there with them. 
YOU would love Gideon more and more, after finding all the stuff we would do and sacrifices for the women he loves, to protect her. Yes It Is slightly scary too but the underlying love he shows for Eva, overwrites It all.

Gideon has yet to share everything with Eva, the past is still a mystery, things are coming up to get the way of Gideon and Eva building the bridge again. Women from the past try to reclaim him, especially Corinne but Gideon is just helping a friend in need nothing more, his love for Eva is made clear to all.  That man just want to protect his angel and just deal with it all on his own.
 A quote from Gideon that says it all:

“Day One of my life was the day I met you.” 

Eva...Eva...Eva...she Is one like lucky women! Her life has been a rollercoaster ride, Gideon has become her knight in shining armor, protecting and saving her but they both end up saving each other, they cannot live without each other that is why their love is getting strong through the series. In this book, Eva becomes strong, dealing and handling situations better than before and believing Gideon when something she see and hear is not what she wants. She choose to trust the bond they have instead, ignoring the things that try to break them apart. 

Some parts makes me want to shout at her... Her relationship with her best friend Cary is always sweet how they standby each other no matter what but sometimes it feels like he is the third wheel in the relationship even though he isn't. Feels like he is her rock to lend upon but same goes with him, I just don't know if you need to take your bbf with you every stage of your relationship.  
And...there is her returned ex-boyfriend Brett, the upcoming rockstar that is also hot and what her back in his life. Every time she sees him approaching she still get shivers and hot over the sight of him and the memories they had but she still see him even though she knows Gideon will be hurt, especially Brett wrote a love song for Eva. God...women what you thinking! ...YOU have the hottest man already...the sex machine is all yours what you doing...  

Overall, you can feel all the emotions, passion and dedication they have for each other, on their relationship, how they have become whole and stronger from what has happened. Thrilled with the ending but I'm sure something will test their love in the next book.
Definitely a steamy sexy love story! Thank wasn't the end of the book...otherwise I would have cried. There is still so much to tell and tie up, twist and turns to follow, It couldn't possibly be the last one! Now I have to go back and read them all again...and wait for Gideon all again...Damn hurry up!  

“Waking up to you is like... presents on Christmas morning."

His mouth curved. "For your convenience, I'm already unwrapped. Batteries not required.”
