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.
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.
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.
I'm obsessed with this series and can't stop listening!!! The angst, mystery, and suspense will have you at the edge of your seat! And those steamy scenes will have you squirming....
On to book #4! Can't wait to continue Gideon and Ava's story!!
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
Now I get it when women seem to be swooning or fanning themselves when they mention Gideon Cross in reviews. This book was all Gideon Cross-sumptuousness! Oh how I loved it! I felt like Gideon and Eva's relationship emanated a strength and security that was further exemplified in the last 2 hours of this audiobook....OMG! What developments and direction this book took!!!!---Totally unexpected, and for me, that's because Gideon Cross is unexpected. He sweeps Eva off of her feet and always seems to surprise her with his reactions and demands which perpetually put her at the top of his priority list. I adore the way Gideon loves Eva...it's a desperate, insatiable, needy, all-consuming kind of love, and of course that love is reciprocated. There are steamy love scenes, and every development in this story brings Gideon and Eva closer together.
Regarding the secondary characters, I'm mixed about Kary (sp?), Eva's best friend. I hate his relationship with Tatiana, but we'll see what happens there. OMG, and Eva's parents kill me!!! I think their story is so sad, but I just know that in the next 2 books something good is going to happen to them...I have that feeling, even though their situation is depressing and lost right now. Eva's friend, Maouby (sp?)---well, there is something weird and suspicious about her, or her boyfriend.....I can't put my finger on it. I'm curious to see what washes up on the shore of past relationships for both Gideon and Eva in the next book. So far, every past relationship, for both has been deemed irrelevant. I hope that continues to be the theme as we go forward in this series.
Regarding book 4, which follows, I can't wait till November when it is released!!! I just hope that Gideon and Eva do not regress in how far along they have come in their trust and love for one another. Eva does tend to misread Gideon's brooding and quiet moments. When she thinks the worst, it tends to turn out that Gideon is even more committed to her than she realizes. I'm hoping that this is the worst type of situation that will occur in the next book. I don't want to be pissed about Gideon or Eva cheating, or anything like that. Well, the fact that I'm pontificating just proves how this series can really get in your head.
UGH, I'm hoping to survive the wait for the release of the final 2 books in this series.
To GIDEON AND EVA, AND THE ADVENTURES & HOT SEX THAT AWAIT THEM!
Narrator: Jill Redfield is incredibly talented. Her performance is excellent. I love what she does for Gideon's voice......she makes him sound so irresistible! She does a great job for all of the characters.
I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!
I was a bit hesitant when I started this listen, the reviews were less that stellar but I bought it anyway.
I am really invested in Gideon and Eva, love can make people do crazy things.... and love can heal some wounds that cut deep.. This was really about Gideon's demons and Eva's journey to fight to heal his demons... Have to say the sex was a bit much in this book but not enough to take away from the story...
I like how the author did not make marriage the definition of HEA! That the battle is still going... This book is written as a daily account verses jumping through month of time....which works at least for me!
There are still many unanswered questions...If Corinne was desperately in love with Gideon, why did she leave? What has her spinning out of control.. What about Bret? what does he have up his sleeve... Gideon's family is still a mystery... and what is Gideon's mother hiding? and who covered up Gideon's 'dramatic act of love' for Eva? ohh.. and Cary's love triangle...WTF was that?....Yep many, many question left unanswered...
Looking forward to the remaining 2 or 3 books... I have never been a fan of slow developing books.. but I must admit why would I want this to end when at every turn something new and significant pops up and draws me back in! I actually enjoy the pace of this book.. Its my very own sort of soap opera!
I would say definitely worth my credit, however, many should be aware this series has I think 5 or 6 books which can be a tough listen for many people!
I have a real crazy in love relationship with books!!!
I enjoyed listening to book mostly because the series has finally started to pick up and there is finally some important action. However, I do still find that the unnecessary arguments and drama take away from the actual storyline itself. I guess I'll have my fingers crossed that the next book in the series will be more normal. We shall see.
I Love to listen to books more often than reading. Audible gets me through the day and night more especially when I'm working !
Yes, this a good read, the narrator was superb ! I was able to follow along with every detail and it kept my attention throughout.
Gideon was a great character that was very troubled, this is not a comparison of 50 shades but a step up ! You don't want to miss out, I downloaded all 3 and can not wait until the 4th comes out !
Yes. I like the voice of the narrator and she brings the characters to life. I've become a fan of audio but also like to have the print version available so I can go over the 'hotter' bits. The one thing about audio is the inability to hit replay to the exact point you want to repeat.
I liked that Gideon and Ava seemed to gain understanding of each other and to finally be making headway toward a meaningful romance, marriage, and life together. Then.....it didn't end but the author decided to keep her $$$$ coming in.
I liked the way she reads and makes the characters come to life. She even gets Gideon's fear through her voice.
Watch Out for Sexy Men and Women.....they never get over it.
I'm wondering why it was advertised as a trilogy and now we are waiting for Book #4.
