I loved this book - yes their relationship was like a rollercoaster ride of emotions due to their obsessive and dysfunction love for each other. Then the break-up period was just heartbreaking and I felt really sorry for each of them even tho I knew why Gideon was doing it sadly Eva didn't. I won't give the ending away, but I thought the last 1hr was soooo touching.
I think it was a sexually charged, romantic, dark and compelling listen which had great characters who were all involved in a tense but joyous love story that's totally addictive - for me anyway.
My patience is going to be severely tested as I will have to wait until next May for the third installment Entwined With You.
Worth a credit? Yes absolutely and after I finished it I could have listened to it again.
My fellow reviewers have pretty much said it all about this book - it's passionate, romantic, 2 likeable main characters who are facing similar challenges in their successful careers are accidentally but happily thrown together. Trouble is he's sworn off sex and she's looking for some so can she wait or will he give in.
Not as hot as some of her other books but still an adult only listen and very enjoyable.
Worth a credit? I have found all her books to be very creditworthy but come on Audible we want more L.J. to add to our libraries please.
Anyone who listens to Maya Banks know that she is a very talented author when it comes to this genre and her books, rather than becoming stale, thankfully seem to be getting better and better as she skilfully handles the character's temperaments rather than just the temperature that can be reached.
This one focuses more on the emotional side of the ménage as the once childhood best friends each come to terms with the impact on their lives a ménage will make but the alternative is just too unbearable to contemplate and we then see the doubts slowly turn into deeds. Not quite so much sex - in fact it isn't until chapter 19 that there's M/F action and that continues until there's a M/F/M incident and only twice is there any full F/M/M/M action which is dealt with in such a touching, emotional, loving way that it's a tender act of love and never thought of as a sleazy act.
There's also the tension as the threats and incidents mount up by the stalker which puts added pressure on the blossoming feelings of the four lovers which eventually caused unnecessary misgivings, misunderstandings and added stress. Even when the identity of the stalker is eventually uncovered it was the emotion of sadness and regret that overwhelmed everyone and was the catalyst to a perfect ending.
Would have liked a 'happily ever after' epilogue 10/20 years later with a ceremony, kids and parenthood - but hey that's just me being needy and greedy I guess and we can all dream!
Worth a credit? Well Maya if you keep writing to this standard then I'll keep buying - so my answer is a HELL YEAH.
