I loved this sequel. I could relate to the characters more in this book than in Shades of Grey. This book resembles Shades of Grey without the whips. I felt like their relationship could be that of one of my friends. I could see real life in the story. A relationship built on sex. Do I have to say more. Listen for yourself.

Yes, I'd recommend this audiobook. The continuing story of Gideon and Eva was a nail-biter. I was so engrossed in this book, I had ringing in my ears from over-using my earbuds! I've pre-ordered the next book. I can't wait!
Yes. As always with Gideon and Ava this story was just as intense.
When Ava realized what Gideon had done and why.
Hard to say.
The unveiling of the doctors part in Gideon's abuse.
Its great to witness the characters mature and grow. I loved the drama and the intrigue in this second instalment. I cant wait to learn of what their future brings..
Even better than the first in the series.
FSOG - I'm a huge fan but this series is taking over as the best yet. Sorry EL James and Becca Battoe but I think you've met your match with these.
The end. It's left me hanging till the 3rd book is released. Roll on June !!
The best. Even though it is an erotic love story the underlying plot is very sad and unfortunately something that is in our society far too often.
Reading is my favorite past time.
This story is so close to FSOG except that the boring emails and texts was left out. Thank you for leaving all the unnecessary aspects out and just making this a great story. Can wait for the next book.

The continuation of the unbelievable (and that's what makes it so fun to hear) relationship between Gideon and Eva. The emotional roller coaster is enough to wear one out but it's certainly worth the effort to see where these two go and how they handle the journey.
One of course thinks of the 50 Shades trilogy but this was much better written.
The car trip after Gideon beat the crap out of the rock singer...the trip in the car, his relentlessness at getting her to finally confront WHY she kissed him and then their time at the beach house.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the intensity of their relationship...and it's so much more than that. Just like Gideon telling Eva that what he feels cannot be confined to the word 'love'.
Gideon and Eva have the best break-ups/reconciliations ever. Their emotional baggage and traumas always have the reader/listener wondering what is going to happen to shatter either one of them.
Ms. Redfield does an excellent job performing both the relationship and sensual story of this book. I cannot wait til Entwined...for sure.
Wife to sometimes neglected husband (due to listening to audiobooks) and mother to adult children. I am a relatively recent avid reader/listener, only really starting to read for pleasure a few years ago but now am thoroughly addicted.
I downladed this book immediately after finishing Book 1. I was drawn completely into the story and love both the characters, maybe because they are both so damaged. I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book!
It is right up there in the top 5. I love the storyline even though Eva and Gideon drive me crazy. Ga-h-h-h-h-h-h! They are so insecure and the question is WHY? But, then, it is all about how one feels about oneself and they are full of self doubt due to their abuse. I dreaded all through the book that they would finally just call it quits.
When Eva goes do his apartment and waits for him to come home. You can see their relationship growing during their mutual trauma. He says 'trust me' and 'wait.' She says how can I when you won't open up to me. They are both very demanding people who love each other and have incredibly 'HOT' sex. Whew! All of the sex scenes are memorable. Sylvia Day either has an amazing imagination or a very skilled lover OR both.
Absolutely. If I could have I would have because every time I stopped listening I thought about the events that had transpired and wondered how these two could ever resolve their different approaches to love and life. Last night at midnight I had to stop listening with 1 hour and 37 minutes to go so what did I do? I got my Kindle and went online and bought the E-book and listened to the ending. Sigh! Now I can listen to it with calm.
Bring on Book #3 of these two. I am addicted. I was telling my husband how frustrating Eva is and how shut down Gideon is and he said 'so quit listening.' Obviously, he isn't obsessed like me. He indulges me by listening to my rants.
