The ending just STOPS.
I love the story that why we all follow the now Crossfire series.
She's great. I have started listening to other books narrated by her.
This is a crazy question because 2 other books now have been added to the "Crossfire Trilogy", I mean now Crossfire series.
Okay, I understand that now SD has to develop the subplots due to the Liongate Crossfire TV series. Everyone had a long wait for this book and now we may have to wait another 6-8 months for the 4th book when this was supposed to be a trilogy. That’s frustrating. Other SD books are not being release by Penguins/Berkley because of the Crossfire series. I honestly do not want to read any other books by her until all the books are out. We all the negative comments hopefully Penguins/Berkley will establish better release dates.
After reeling for this book for so long, I was expecting some real drama or answers to so many questions. Most chapters was based on their sexual encounters and I am lost and more confused after this book. None of the problems were solve. Come on Sylvia please make it happen in the next book because I feel like I just wasted my money for nothing.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Gideon and Eva are done dancing around their relationship. They have matured and are putting each other first. No more running away when things look bad. Okay, there are doubts and worries, but these are two damaged people overcoming their pasts and striving for a solid future. The sexual attraction that first drew them together has evolved into something much deeper and meaningful(but still sizzling!)
To rebut the complainers:
The ending is abrupt, but no more than in Bared to You and Reflected in You.
There are loose ends, but no cliffhanger.
The publisher sets the release date. Sylvia gave us snippets and there were snapshots to keep up interest during the wait.
The author decides how many books are needed to tell the story in her head. If you want to read the book before deciding to buy it, patronize your local library. Accusing an author of being greedy is just plain rude.
If I like a book enough to relisten to it and I want to own it, it rates 5 stars. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
Jill Redfield did an outstanding job with the delivery of the story.
It pains me to write anything even slightly negative about Sylvia Day as i think she is a fabulous author, however, for what ever reason, my greatest critisism stems from my overwhelming dissapointment in this installment.
The first two books were increadable, i loved them, listened to them multiple times, loved the characters and invested in them, they held just the right balance between storyline and sexual intrigue. I loved Gideons strength and dominance and ability to be vulnerable to Eva but to not be controlled by her. I loved Eva's strength, her love for Gideon, her loyalty to her family and friendships. In the third book however, Gideon lost all his strength, he spent the whole book chasing around after Eva, pandering to her every whim, losing all sense of self it would seem, even occupying the apartment next door? and then what is with the Corrin storyline and the sex tape?? a little much too much it would seem. It almost felt as though i was trapped in a bad episode of the young and the restless as aposed to a real life believable drama. I had loved this story for its realism, its relatability but what is next, a royal scandal or brett kline turning into a serial killer?? Im sorry to say but Gideon was pathetic in this novel and that crushed me. And Eva, was so needy and winey and self absorbed i actually couldnt listen to it all at once.
Where i think it went wrong for me, Although still an amazing writer, I really believe this book was a fluffer book, written to fill in a gap. I have heard that there is another two books to go and i cant possibly see why or how. If Gideon degrades any further im going to scream. The worst part for me though, was that in contrast to the other books, this one had far too much sex in it to the point it lost any effect or meaning and was just too much, it was way over done to fill in the pages.
I still believe in Sylvia Day though and i really hope that the next book, brings the storyline back off the ledge, saves Gideons masculinity and Evas likeability. I didnt even like Carey in this book with his twist. Will i put the next book on preorder like i did the first three, no. But when i am browsing and i see it listed after its release, i will read or listen to it and give the series one last chance....
The saving grace was Jill Redfield. I believe she is such a consumae orator. I love her work and would listen to anything she recorded. Please use her for more audio books as she does the characters justice.
The crossfire series started off so good. I recommended it to everyone; it fell off the plot and storyline are gone and the characters are sickening; SD is grasping to keep the story going. I waited for this book and am very disappointed SD needs get off the money train and get back to writing because she lost a reader with this one.
I waited it seems like forever for this book to come out thinking it was the end of the story, only to be left hanging and feeling cheated..
No, I will not try any more books from this author. I felt there was no storyline, and I expected to have a good ending, not to wait for another book to come out. I wasted my credit, on a book that I was so excited to come out and end up very unhappy and disappointed. I was very happy with the narrator, I like her and feel bad that she had to narrated this book.
No, I will give it a try to different authors.
Oh no please, the storyline was bad in this book, in my opinion. It should have end it with the first book.
This is my first book to give a book review. I did it because the book is awful, I am so disappointed. save your credit.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I do love this series and I did love this book too, BUT I'm ready for a conclusion. I can handle the trilogys but it seems that everyting coming out now is a trilogy and I'm getting tired of it. Yes like I said this one was as good as the previous books but you can prolong something too long and it's time for this one to come to a satisfying conclusion. I will say it was worth my credit.
The ending left to many questions unanswered. This third book was very disappointing, can't believe I waited months for this book
I have started several books that were supposed to be TRILOGIES. It seems that the authors see that there is so much interest in the stories they turn them into on going series ie "Wheel of Time" 16 LONG BOOKS. If you say it's going to be 3 books keep it that way, even if you have to make it a little longer. Sylvia Day writes really hot passionate pros. But she should have ended the series and if she wanted to bring back the characters in another book, which I've seen done, I'm sure it would have been really hot and awesome. What she did to her fans her was bate and switch......NOT NICE
She writes great, but she shouldn't do what she did in saying it's a trilogy, then make the third book end like you know there will be another book to tie things up. Who knows if that will be the end of it.....
Sylvia Day is a really good writer of sexual erotica, but what she did to her fans with this book was really cruel. If it would have been known to be an on going series from the start, people may not have been so up set. So many writers do this now. Makes you not want to start a trilogy or series.
