Publisher's Summary

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....

I would title it "Bored with You"

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.

Steamy Conclusion to a Popular Trilogy??? what?

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.

Lackluster

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

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.

Would you recommend Entwined With You to your friends? Why or why not?

Absolutely, I still consider Sylvia a great writer and it's worth the read.

Did Jill Redfield do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Although Jill Redfield isn't my favorite narrator she's still in my top 10. I've heard a lot worse.

Unsatisfying, Eye Rolling Series Continues...

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.

Day wrote half a book and I paid for an ending!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

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.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

It made me angry that she took my money and did not finish the story. I feel like she just wants to make money.

Any additional comments?

I will not buy another book to find out the ending I was promised in this one.

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!

Disappointed!

What disappointed you about Entwined With You?

<br/>This book lacked the spark that was very evident in the first book. <br/>And what is it with authors at the moment - stories never end - they just hang there.<br/>I thought this series was marketed as a trilogy!

Would you ever listen to anything by Sylvia Day again?

No I don't think I will.

What three words best describe Jill Redfield’s voice?

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.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was annoyed that I had wasted time waiting for this book.

Very Disappointed

What disappointed you about Entwined With You?

I felt there was no storyline, and I expected to have a good ending, not to wait for another book to come out. I was so excited for this book to come out and end up very unhappy and disappointed.

Any additional comments?

Not as good as it should have been

Would you consider the audio edition of Entwined With You to be better than the print version?

Jill is the perfect narrator for this book for me. I love the timber of her voice and I could listen to her read the phone book! I have not read the printed version...so I can't speak to that.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

In my opinion, Sylvia should have kept this story as a trilogy as was originally planned. This book didn't really add anything to the overall story that couldn't have been shortened and put in a final book. The other thing I would have changed was to have left out at least one or two of the additional stumbling blocks she threw up between Gideon and Ava. No couple could be THAT unlucky. After awhile, it got to be ridiculous. They need a break in between catastrophes!

Which character – as performed by Jill Redfield – was your favorite?

Gideon

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No...as usual with these characters, I need to take it in small chunks. This series touched something in me. I am emotional about the characters...and when really bad things happen, I have to turn off the ipod and give it a rest before I can go back and pick it up again.

Any additional comments?

I have to say that Ava bugged me in this book. I felt that at the end of Reflected in You, Ava was more mature and less needy and impulsive. She took a giant step backwards for me in this book...her reactions to Brett really pushed some buttons for me and not in a good way. She seemed to jump all over the place in this book...sometimes level headed, sometimes ditzy or bitchy for no reason. Then when there seemed to be a reason to be bitchy, she backed off. I wish her character could sustain a level of maturity...it sometimes makes me feel bad for Gideon that she isn't the strong level-headed kick-ass wife he needs. But I will surely be back for the next installment in this story. I'm addicted to Gideon just as badly as Ava is!

Thank Goodness It's NOT Over yet!!

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.

Disappointment from start to finish.

What would have made Entwined With You better?

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. <br/><br/>There was no plot development or character development and if I heard him growl "Angel" one more time, I was gonna throw up. <br/><br/>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.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance was fine. She did a good job with an awful book

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Entwined With You?

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.

What did you like most about Entwined With You?

I LOVE this series

Sylvia Day is a genius. A pure genius.

I love this series. I adore Eva and Gideon and the fact that they are not just one dimensional. They both have personal battles to face but never let personal problems overshine their love for one another.

This is my favourite book of the series, it is fun to listen to Eva/Gideon sneaking around and having to be coy. However, Sylvia Day never lets secondary characters slide and her supporting cast are well-rounded and well-developed.

10/10 would read again (maybe even tomorrow).
