I would have enjoyed this book if Day had of finished the story. As it is she wrote half a book and put it on the shelf for sale. I guess there will be a 4th book in the trilogy now.
It made me angry that she took my money and did not finish the story. I feel like she just wants to make money.
I will not buy another book to find out the ending I was promised in this one.
Love reading! Always have, glad my friend turn me on to audible. Love romance and mystery books
I can not be Sylvia Day ended the book this way! She repeated stuff that we learned in the other two books and she's dragging this out already. I am so t'ed off right no I don't know what to do. I see why it's gotten so many bad reviews!
This book lacked the spark that was very evident in the first book.
And what is it with authors at the moment - stories never end - they just hang there.
I thought this series was marketed as a trilogy!
No I don't think I will.
Usually I really enjoy Jill Redfield's narration - but not with this book. Though to be fair to her - the quality of the material she was working with was poor.
I was annoyed that I had wasted time waiting for this book.
I love the first two books and couldn't wait for the 3rd, it turns out to be a big disappointment! Not well organized and way too much drama without any conclusion.
I felt there was no storyline, and I expected to have a good ending, not to wait for another book to come out. I was so excited for this book to come out and end up very unhappy and disappointed.
SAVE YOUR CREDIT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jill is the perfect narrator for this book for me. I love the timber of her voice and I could listen to her read the phone book! I have not read the printed version...so I can't speak to that.
In my opinion, Sylvia should have kept this story as a trilogy as was originally planned. This book didn't really add anything to the overall story that couldn't have been shortened and put in a final book. The other thing I would have changed was to have left out at least one or two of the additional stumbling blocks she threw up between Gideon and Ava. No couple could be THAT unlucky. After awhile, it got to be ridiculous. They need a break in between catastrophes!
No...as usual with these characters, I need to take it in small chunks. This series touched something in me. I am emotional about the characters...and when really bad things happen, I have to turn off the ipod and give it a rest before I can go back and pick it up again.
I have to say that Ava bugged me in this book. I felt that at the end of Reflected in You, Ava was more mature and less needy and impulsive. She took a giant step backwards for me in this book...her reactions to Brett really pushed some buttons for me and not in a good way. She seemed to jump all over the place in this book...sometimes level headed, sometimes ditzy or bitchy for no reason. Then when there seemed to be a reason to be bitchy, she backed off. I wish her character could sustain a level of maturity...it sometimes makes me feel bad for Gideon that she isn't the strong level-headed kick-ass wife he needs. But I will surely be back for the next installment in this story. I'm addicted to Gideon just as badly as Ava is!
I loved the first 2 books but this third one is just soo disappointing for me. I had so much expectation and it just fizzled.. It was such a blah story for me. No substance like the first two.... In saying that, I will still buy the next book just to see where she takes it and if she can actually make it better... Well I guess it cant really get any worse.. Sorry!!
The performance of Jill Redfield was quite good. I enjoyed listening to her narrate. I felt like this book showcased more of the sex scenes and Eva's and Gideon's building of trust, deeper love, and understanding of one another than it did with actual content and resolution. What it did was provoke a yearning and interest in what's to come in the next book. I have suspicions about Eva's mother and maybe the situation with Nathan's murder. I think this series could go on for more than one installment because there are so many storylines developing and it may seem rushed if it's wrapped up in only one more book. Sylvia has created a fantastic group of characters.
I think the extreme detail of their 'encounters' was hotter than hell. It was touching that Gideon cried; it showed his more sensitive side. All of the touching moments where Gideon and Ava are together are exactly what I was wanting for them. I also felt the pain and dissappointment that Ava must have felt by being swept away from Gideon at the hospital. It's outstanding that "Crossfire" is Ava's safeword during intimacy but stands for Gideon's deep affection and extreme need for Ava.
I could never decide. The entire story is awesome!
Even the darkness of their pasts cannot keep them from their destiny to be together. It's just a matter of time.
I cannot believe how this ended. I will go insane waiting for the next book. I can only hope it will be this year and SOON (please!) because if I have to wait one whole year or longer I will explode!
The best thing about this book was Jill Redfeld’s excellent narration. Otherwise do not bother with this book.
No, it is a lot of repetitive fluff and very little new material.
She does a great job with all of the characters.
I was very disappointed with this book. There was very little new plot. I feel cheated by the author (especially at the end when informed there would be two more books and not a final ending as was stated). The author had too much filler with repetitive information from the first two books and too many repetitive sex scenes. It is obvious to me that that the motivation was to make more money with this series. The best thing about this book was Jill Redfeld’s excellent narration.
An actual plot or storyline. This book does not stand alone like the first two. Nothing worth reading happened.
Actually finished the series as promised instead of writing this filler book with no substance. Just more character background.
Some of the over abundance of sex scenes! And maybe replace them with a resolution to the main storyline of Eva and Gideon.
