I have no idea what I'm doing so, I'm just testing this site out while I figure out if I want to move permanently from Good Reads.

Entwined with You - Sylvia Day This review was originally posted on www.acreads.blogspot.com
Rating: 4.5/5 stars

This is a hard review for me to write because I'm always so nervous when it comes to sequels and third (and fourth and fifth) books in a saga. I loved Bared to You and Reflected in You and I feel like I've been waiting for Entwined with You for ages. Honestly, I think the only way to fully wrap my head around the third installment of the Crossfire series would be to re-read the entire thing from the beginning but ain't nobody got time for that.

Entwined with You picks up right after Reflected in You leaves off... so for those of you who have read the series, you know what was just revealed.... and it was a big deal. Despite the fact that this giant revelation is sitting in Gideon and Eva's laps, they decide to turn their focus to their relationship and have a lot of sex. I mean, a lot of sex. More so than what I remember from the first two books and while I do enjoy my fair share of steamy scenes, more often than not I was rolling my eyes and thinking, 'Come on now, guys. Let's stop humping and get to talking!"

That being said, I did appreciate all of the attention that they paid to bettering themselves as a couple. Gideon and Eva had been through a lot in the past book and it was nice to see them trying to work through it all. And, after the roller coaster that was Reflected in You, I enjoyed a relatively drama-free ride. There were definitely tense parts that tested Gideon and Eva's relationship but compared to the previous books, it was smooth sailing. They were both able to admit areas that they needed to work on and seem very committed to seeing their relationship through.

Unfortunately, nothing is ever good for long and I fear for the two in the fourth and fifth books. As much as I enjoy their story, I would have been okay wrapping things up with Entwined with You. I'm afraid that Day is going to pull out ridiculous plot lines that will eventually ruin the love I have for this series. But, let's be real - I could always say that I won't be reading the next book... but that is not going to happen.
