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.
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.
Audiobook Addict. It's all about the Listen. Mostly Romance, but I do branch out a bit. Reviews are my honest opinions-popular or not.
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.
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.
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.
"Entwined with you"
Continued nicely following on from the last book of the up's & down's of jealousy, suspense & of cause passion. Keeping you gripped & wonting more the book seem's so short.
I loved the first 2 books and couldn't wait to hear the next installment but was very disappointed in this book. There seemed to be alot of dead ends. A lot of the questions that I had from book 1 and 2 were still left unanswered at the end of this book. I feel that Sylvia Day is just trying to drag the readers along to the 4th installment. The narrating was fine as with the other 2. Not sure if I will be getting the 4th installment as I have lost the love for these characters which is a great shame as a previously stated i very much enjoyed the first 2 books.
"Love Sylvia Day"
I love the crossfire series. i was eagerly waiting this book. It didnt dissapoint. Looking forward to the 4th Installment.
"OMG !!! Steamy"
I had been waiting this book to come out for months. I had pre-order and had been waiting to download like an insane person :))) I was hooked! Yeap.... and it was worth the wait. I was smitten, in love and completely crazy about Gideon and Eva....
Well done Silvia... You promised and you delivered a great sequence. This book takes off right where the second book ends and there are no long time gaps in between. The storyline develops but it doens't rush this time. I have noticed a slower pace and I guess it's because there are two more books in the pipeline.
I saw a great love story in this one, with no great insecurities between the characters. If you decide to get this book you will be surprised by a couple of extra steamy scenes which totally surprised me... I wasn't expecting that at all.
I found the book a bit short though. I was expecting something like the previous ones but I can't give a bad critit because of that. It just makes the anticipation even more greater for the next one to come out. There are a lot of things which we don't know about Gideon, a lot of secrets which need to come out about his family and of course we have TWO murders which are unresolved ..... So I guess Silvia knows how to keep us entertained!
"entwined with you"
now we are gowing to have to wait for book 4 not good but bid love the book
"I want more!!!!!"
I've absolutely loved this!!! Just sad I've finished it so quickly... Not quite sure what to do with myself now. This trilogy knocks spots of the other well known trilogy!! I don't want to give anything away so I'll just say grab yourself a glass of wine - and some batteries!! A real steamy read that takes you there...
Kudos to the author!
