Entwined With You (A Crossfire Novel) Review



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 was not a huge fan of this series when I started it.  Book one made me uncomfortable because Gideon and Eva are so messed up, book two didn't do much to help me like Eva very much because she is a bit whiney and Gideon playing games was irritating.  Corrine made me want to kill her and quite frankly Cary is a bit too easy in my opinion.

However, this one was significantly better.  I liked that Gideon was so protective of Eva that he did what he had to do in order to protect her.  He sets everything up and it feels like a game of chess.  I kept waiting for the checkmate moment that hasn't yet come.  I still see the bottom falling out of this before all is said and done.  A lot of tears and heartbreak is coming, I just feel it.

Corrine is the devil, I really dislike her.  I dislike Deanna and quite frankly I am not that impressed with Eva's mother Monica.  Deanna and Corrine have reasons to be angry and hurt by Gideon.  So I can understand and accept them.  Monica, however, is a pain in the ass.  Why in the world is everything about money and always about her and her feelings.  I found myself losing it when she would have chats with Eva.  If she were my mother, I would have cut her out of my life instantly.

The supporting characters are as charming as always and Cary makes me adore him more and more every book.  He makes no apologies for being who he is and I can appreciate that.  He is about the only person who seems to be honest and upfront about anything in this series.

I love that Gideon and Eva are married.  Hate that they are keeping it a secret.  Sigh....I'm conflicted on this series, I want to love it.  At least this book is the best of the three so far...to me anyway.  And apparently we aren't done yet....I have watched so many people lose it over there being more story to tell...how weird is that?

I give this 4 lipsticks...
