The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires.... From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside - so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.
Entwined by our secrets, we tried to defy the odds. We made our own rules and surrendered completely to the exquisite power of possession....

“A steamy read that will have you furiously flipping pages.” (Glamour)
“A highly charged story that flows and hits the mark.” (Kirkus Reviews)
I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
Story - Okay, it's my fault. I listened to Bared to You and Reflected in You and didn't learn my lesson about this series. The problem is that I love the story of Ava and Gideon, their tortured pasts and their hot chemistry... but I'm getting really bored with the constant sex. There's a saying that applies here, "Less is more."
The first two books had a great story line but in this one the story stagnates. Except for some good stuff toward the end, it's all over the place with side characters and little filler subplots. Why? This isn't the conclusion to the trilogy we expected, so the author adds stupid fluff to stretch the series. Think about this ... five books for a romance??? I'm torn whether to continue with the series. I want to see everything tied up with a big happy bow, but I fear Gideon and Ava will just F*#& for 15 of the next 20 book-hours and then die stuck together.
Narrator - Love the narrator. She's got a velvety, sexy voice, and she can do a pretty good guy voice too! Her performance lends class to the story.
Overall - If you like lots and lots of steamy sex, you will love this book. Otherwise, you might find it boring.
I'm a bit surprised that some feel cheated and ripped off that this is NOT the last in the Eva and Gideon saga, but I for one am thrilled that there are at least 2 more books to follow. I love the subplots, and I want to know more about their crazy parents, families and exes, the female cop, Cary, Megumi and the 2 "drivers" who are more special ops bodyguards extraordinaire than chauffeurs. If Ms. Day had limited this to just 3 books, I think most of us would have lamented that it was all over and would have wanted her to do at least a couple of spin-off series with Gideon and Eva cameos and updates. My only gripe is that I didn't catch the story a few years from now so I could just listen to them all at one time, but that's pretty much always the way it goes. I can't wait to see what she spins for the next books, but I'm kind of hoping for a Magdalena or Megumi/Brett hookup and lots of comeuppance for G's mom, the pediatrician, half-brother and anyone else who needs it.
As for the writer being "greedy," please. I would have paid a credit, and many would have paid retail of $29.95 without a blink AND been happy with more books in the series. Through Audible, this is absolutely worth a credit, though it's cheaper by cash and a total bargain to get the 3 audiobooks for under $30.
I was anticipating the release of this book, thinking that it is the conclusion of the series, however, it's not and it should've been because I've grown tired of these characters and their drama...it's more drama than love story anymore. I re-listened to book 1 & 2 to remember what all happened so I can prepare myself for the continuation of this story. I couldn't remember why I loved these series and I guess because books 1 & 2 had really hot & steamy sex scenes and built up the characters, but now that I re-listened to these books I found myself rolling my eyes as in, really, why did I ever like this series?! Eva's character is so jealous and possessive of her man Gideon and accuses him of cheating all the time, but then she put's herself in uncomfortable situations that can lead to disaster. She's always questioning Gideon's fidelity yet she's kisses her ex-boyfriend in book 2? And then in this book, she marrys Gideon (don't worry I didn't spoil it much) but then plans to fly back to San Diego to meet with her ex-boyfriend again! She's just asking for trouble. How can she be content with Gideon but she puts herself in danger all the time whether it's emotionally or physically. I'm emotionally drained myself after listening to this book. If you like Sylvia Day then I reccommend her Renegade Angels series. I wish she would continue down that series than have 2 more books of this one.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
This is such a hard review for me to write. I was so excited to read the “Steamy Conclusion to a Popular Trilogy” as described by Audible. Imagine my surprise to learn that this trilogy is NOT in fact a trilogy and this is NOT in fact the conclusion. Oh it’s steamy, but there is no real ending. Turns out there are in fact 2 more books planned. I must admit I felt cheated. (especially by the author's end comment)
All that aside, this installment was very much like the last one for me. It ran both HOT and COLD. At times the story was really flowing…we were getting answers and some real advancements in the plot. However, most of the time it just felt like so much fluff and filler. I didn’t really care for most of the subplots with the secondary characters either. And as a side note, I really dislike Bret!
I’m giving this one 3 stars for Jill Redfeld’s brilliant narration and for the hot and steamy sections.
Audible Addict!!! My Favorite books have change since joining Audible and my taste for erotic has enhanced! Follow me to the dark side. ;)
I just expected more of Brett and Ava, I wanted Gideon to be that powerful man not this sunshine and bunnies crap
I love Jill Redfield's performaince. I look for anything that she reads becaused she always does a great job. She is just readining what Day wrote.
Magdalana please. What was the purpose of even bringing her up.
Shame on the publisher for drawing this out for profits. I know this book could have been complete by the third book. I don’t like that Ava is such a pushover!! Though I would miss them I don’t like having to wait ANOTHER YEAR for another drag on drama. A lot of this was fluff and it was very disappointing. I just want the MAN Gideon back. I didn’t feel him at all in Entwined. And they don’t have to have sex every time they are together.
Entwined With You leaves its readers hanging in the worst way. The storyline remains solid, how the book ends in the worst possible way. No cliffhanger to keep your appetite wet. It seems as if Sylvia decided she simply did not want to work on the book anymore. I am hoping this was a the result of a poor decision by her publisher to split the book into two or three different books.
Jill Redfield did an awesome job but the material itself was not the greatest.
I was highly disappointed because I thought this book was a trilogy so when I reached the end I was upset and let down. I enjoyed 1&2 but book 3 was not what it was hyped up to be I am not sure if I will spend my credits on the next book in this series.
Majorly let down :(
I enjoyed the first two in the series, and was looking forward to the insights and conclusion that this book promised. Apparently Sylvia Day did not respect the intelligence of her audience enough to deliver what she had promised. This is NOT the conclusion. There are more episodes to follow. I resent the feeling that our loyalty to the series was exploited. I will not be buying any more in this series.
Conclude it as promised.
She was an enjoyable narrator. I probably listened to the book for longer periods than I would have read in book form.
Not really. Reflected in You, on the other hand ...
The story should have ended with this book. This book was simply a filler to hold us over until the next one (and fill the author's pockets) is released and I feel very cheated. I pre-ordered this book, and I've never pre-ordered a book before and once it was over I felt like knowing really happened.
It's not a bad story and she has written a lot better books and a lot worse.
I'm not sure I've I have listened to Jill Redfield's performances in the past but she was great.
Heck yea! This book just ended; just like that it was over. It needed something major to happen and the one thing that was major didn't really feel all that major. (Sorry for the redundant words, I'm literally just at a loss for words for this book.
I wouldn't go so far as to say this book was a waste of my time. I'm not entirely sure if Sylvia Day rushed to release this novel but it wasn't as compelling as the first two in the series. I guess it was just a little too far fetched and thick on the drama. The parts that should have been elaborated on were left in the shadows. Still a good story though.
Absolutely, I still consider Sylvia a great writer and it's worth the read.
Although Jill Redfield isn't my favorite narrator she's still in my top 10. I've heard a lot worse.
"Disappointment from start to finish."
This book was an abomination. The first two were great and were moving along nicely with a great storyline and great characters and now the third part of a trilogy suddenly becomes a the third part of a five books series. The story is stretched so thin, it's like wet toilet paper, and just as enticing.
There was no plot development or character development and if I heard him growl "Angel" one more time, I was gonna throw up.
Absolutely dreadful. If I had thought about it sooner and if Audible did not have such a difficult returns policy, I would return it. Suddenly turning a 3 parter into a 5 parter surely breaks the contract between writer and reader, even if it is only a moral contract. Will never buy another book in the series.
The performance was fine. She did a good job with an awful book
I would have cut at least half of the sex scenes, deleted 4 out of 5 times that they said "I love you" or called each other their pet names and I would have insisted that Sylvia Day actually finish the story as she promised.
hoping there is a book 4. I read all three books in the crossfire series and its up there with the fifty shades trilogy, except Gideon Cross is not as sexually twisted and Christian Grey.
loving the crossfire story.
The characters are amazing and their journey is addictive.
loving Jill Redfield as narrator she is in my top 3 of my most favourite narrators of all time!!!
I am so on to the next book as soon as I've finished typing.
I applaud you Sylvia Day on an amazing set of books. xxxxxx
"outstanding - best one yet !"
loved the story and the narration was brilliant.
Honestly there isn't anything else to say except read it/listen to it, in peace and quiet so you can enjoy their story, pleasure ..... and pain.
Enjoy. I did, every single word
"Good but reaching a bit"
Still enjoyable but im afraid the storyline is being stretched a bit, where can their story possibly go from here? Mind you the steamy scenes are kind of worth sticking around for.
A rare account of love, romance and commitment. Very well done. Totally unforgettable, and full of fantasy and exquisite passion.
"Crossfire Book 3!"
