Entwined with You by Sylvia Day

I love Sylvia Day, and I really did enjoy the first two books in this series, but this third book is without a doubt my favorite so far. As with all series reviews, this review might contain spoilers for the first two books, so instead of reading this review, you should totally go and read the first two Crossfire books before this. Gideon and Eva have been through some hard times in the first couple of books, but in this book I think you finally get to see the two of them on some stronger ground. Going through their trials has only seemed to make these two stronger as a couple, and while I agree with some people who think the two of them are codependent, but for some reason it just works for them, and it works for me as a reader. Without a doubt this book totally is right on par for the course in terms of the hot and steamy scenes. Throughout all of Gideon and Eva’s issues and time together, they always had a great connection and awesome chemistry. Now that the two of them are on more solid ground, I think it makes their between the sheets time together all the more intense and better to read. I ultimately think the best part about this book is that both of these characters have done such a great job evolving into better people and are in a much better place to be having a relationship. They […]

Reflected in You by Sylvia Day

I have to say I really do love Sylvia Day’s writing style. And I have to say without a doubt that this book was a great sequel to the previous book. As with all series, this book may contain spoilers for any previous book, so either be prepared or read the other book first (my vote is read the other book first). So this book is a lot of push and pull with Gideon and Eva. And truth be told I kinda liked it. I liked that there was kind of a divide going on between this new couple, because not only do I believe it will make the two of them stronger as a couple later down the line, but I also think it made for some really intense reading. While both Gideon and Eva have some serious pasts to deal with, I think Eva is in a better place than Gideon. Eva has told people about what has happened to her, and even better she actually trusts a couple people in her life, so she has people to lean on. Whereas Gideon is still very secretive about his past, and I think he has a hard time trusting anyone, sometimes even Eva. I think its the reason why he is so controlling and secretive. What I loved about Eva in this book is that she she starts to really stand up to people and give people a piece of her mind. A lot of stuff happens in this […]

Bared to You by Sylvia Day

I think I’ve made it decently known that I really like Sylvia Day’s style of writing. I think she is a really good writer, but even with that I was a little apprehensive about picking up this series, and I will admit that up front. I read this series after finally hunkering down and reading FSoG (which I’m not sure I will ever review for the site), there are so many comparisons made online of this series to FSoG, so I was really kind of worried that I was going to hate the heroine in this story the same way, or think the hero was just an egomaniac who is beyond selfish. But the fact of the matter is every writer is different, so even if you can find parallels between the two series, the writing styles are just inherently different. I’m glad my faith in Day’s writing ability won out and I read this series, because at the end of the day I really did enjoy the read. Things I liked about the first book in the series. I loved the first meeting between Gideon and Eva. I’m not sure I can even pinpoint why, but I know I liked it, and I know it stuck with me even when I was finished reading the book. I liked that both of the characters have some serious backstory, that is similar in some ways, its different in others. Both of these characters have a history of childhood abuse, and the […]
