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)
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.
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 love Sylvia Day books and they are an automatic download for me - and these Crossfire books have been exceptional and just yummy.
I found that this book, rather than having one main plot, seemed to have either lots of little sub plots going on or Eva and Gideon were entwined with each other over and over and over again. It seemed to be a book that laid down lots of foundations for future events with few events to call it's own. However, I did find those few events entertaining, frustrating, romantic and hot but.... there was just a little too much sex and not quite enough dialogue.
Worth a credit? Yes, no matter what - I'm hooked........ and eagerly awaiting the next 2 instalments.
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.
The ending left to many questions unanswered. This third book was very disappointing, can't believe I waited months for this book
I am from Houston Texas. Favorite Books are Deception and Exposed by Namomi Chase. I love Olivia Cunning, Sylvia Day and Suzanne Wright.
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.
Gimme more, more, more of Ava and Giddeon.. I certainly hope more books are in the works for the near future.
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
Gesh, doesn't Mrs. Day understand that I have to work AND sleep!!!! Bad Mrs. Day!!!
This book had the same vibe as the first two in the trilogy *cough* I mean series, because it isn't over. Gideon is total alpha male, but insecure when it comes to Ava. Ava is a strong woman who doesn't need a man to complete her, but it's nice she found him anyway. So, why didn't I give it 5 stars....well while I do enjoy the steamy scenes I felt in this book they were a bit repetitive, which is like saying there were too many calorie free hot fudge sundaes, but still....I could have used more answers, and a couple less steamy scenes.
One of the things I liked about the previous 2 books was that the stories were self contained, you expected the next book to be a continuation but there weren't as many vague open ended questions and sub plots like this book. It seems like every new thread that was brought up had no conclusion and it annoys me greatly when writers realize their series is popular and they must stretch it out to make it last longer, so in a way this book just wasn't as pure as the previous two, so it got 3.5 stars from me. I will of course get book 4 when it's available but I'm not as excited as I was for book 3. Oh and of course Jill Redfield YOU were awesome, thanks for another great listen.
I felt cheated
Next gosh should beno more.
I dont know
Book one and two were great but this one nothing come good all sex up but no more
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..
