From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I 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…
After re-reading the first two books in the series, I really forgot how much I loved this one. It has everything one could want in a book. A great plot, great writing, great setting and great characters. Not only are both of the main characters awesome, but so are all the side characters. But don’t be fooled. This is not an entirely light read. At times it can be pretty dark.
Entwined with You starts off right where Reflected in You ended throwing us right back in the story. Gideon and Eva’s journey continues as they fight their inner demons and nightmares and work together at maintaining and building a functional relationship filled with intense desire, love and commitment.
One of my favorite things about Gideon and Eva as a couple is that they actually TALK! They talk through EVERYTHING! They’ve both been broken by their pasts and are dealing with untold amounts of external stress and yet with them, their relationship always came first. I always knew what their top priority was. I could just feel it. And I absolutely freaking LOVED it.
Gideon Cross is loyal, understanding, powerful, and passionate and dominant and possessive but at the same time is so vulnerable and broken. I love how he always puts Eva first. He was always thinking of her and it was clear in each one of his actions. If it’s possible, I love him even more after reading this book than I did before!
Eva is strong and independent, and is deeply scarred by her past and also still hurt by things that had happened in their relationship. Gideon helped balance her out. He is always insisting on working things through together. And at the end of the day, they both just wanted to make things work, and were willing to do anything to bring them closer to each other. I loved watching them work through their issues, and seeing them progress, and grow, both as individuals and as a couple.
Gideon and Eva continue to be one of my absolute favorite book couples! I loved re-reading this book, and series again. Definitely a good series to read. I recommend it.
