Day's fifth Crossfire novel brings the story of Gideon and Eva to a satisfying conclusion. Narrating their stories in alternating chapters, Eva and Gideon relate their explosive physical attraction, their appreciation of how they help each other heal old emotional wounds, and their ever-increasing mutual trust. Glamorous people, swanky settings, steamy sex, and passionate married love make this a heartwarming, gratifying conclusion to the series (Publishers Weekly)
Gideon and Eva's complicated relationship plays out with hurt, passion, obsession and most importantly, love. Day's writing is flawless and carries readers on the journey of these two broken characters toward each other and the all-consuming emotions that leap out of the book. A wonderful story written by a master storyteller! (RT Book Reviews)

From the Inside Flap
The final chapter in the global blockbuster Crossfire quintet.
Gideon Cross. Falling in love with him was the easiest thing I've ever done. It happened instantly. Completely. Irrevocably.
Marrying him was a dream come true. Staying married to him is the fight of my life. Love transforms. Ours is both a refuge from the storm and the most violent of tempests. Two damaged souls entwined as one.
We have bared our deepest, ugliest secrets to one another. Gideon is the mirror that reflects all my flaws . . . and all the beauty I couldn't see. He has given me everything. Now, I must prove I can be the rock, the shelter for him that he is for me. Together, we could stand against those who work so viciously to come between us.
But our greatest battle may lie within the very vows that give us strength. Committing to love was only the beginning. Fighting for it will either set us free . . . or break us apart.
Heartbreakingly and seductively poignant, One with You is the breathlessly awaited finale to the Crossfire saga, the searing love story that has captivated millions of readers worldwide.

The final few chapters left me shocked, and without giving anything away, there were tears and tissues were required. I still haven't quite come to terms with everything that happened! This book was needed to say good-bye to the characters, in more ways than one, and I would definitely recommend the series to anyone who likes to get invested in a fictional relationship!
The book is split between chapters written in Eva's point of view and Gideon's. Personally, I preferred Gideon's point of view as he is a much more interesting character and I liked reading it like this in this book and the fourth one (captivated by you). I found myself hurrying through Eva's parts just to get to Gideon's. I felt the book should've been written solely in Gideon's point of view because we have had three books of just Eva.
Furthermore, there isn't a real "hook" in this book. Trying to describe it is essentially two people trying to work out their love life. There are a few twists and turns, some interesting and some really weren't needed -SPOILER: I did not see the point in killing off one of the characters. It looked like a desperate plea at the end to provide something to move the plot along. And after all of this, we still didn't get the big white wedding. Instead, it jumped to the honeymoon. I felt that the big white wedding was the purpose of the book as it was what they mostly talked about, but we didn't get it. I found that disappointing.
I will always enjoy Eva and Gideon. There are many hot sex scenes as standard with these two which i feel is the main pull of the books. Even though there is drama in the novels, there isn't much to write a blurb about. Maybe something about the ex-girlfriends who are involved but essentially if you read the back of the book to get a feel for it, you can't get anything from that either. You can't report any major scene as it all just flows through to another dramatic scene.
Got get me wrong, I love a bad boy billionaire. There is clearly interpretation from 50 Shades in this series. I believe the writers are even friends. That doesn't discourage me from the books at all but this wasn't an overpoweringly dramatic finale to a series that I really love. The ending, whilst chaotic was so much more interesting written from Gideon. The panic he felt, watching his emotions run riot. So interesting. By the 4th book, i believe Eva lost her ability to tell the story and Gideon (as he would!) took over.
This really isn't a "wrap up book". It closes the series without much of an ending. So they live happily ever after. We don't get the wedding. Someone dies who shouldn't have, Cary may or may not be the father of a baby. There are quite a few loose ends. I think if the characters were to have a child as a reason not to have the wedding would've been better than a death. It would've grown them as a couple.
Nevertheless, if you love the rest of the series, naturally you will love this too. It's a shame the ending isn't quite as impactful as the rest of it. The third book is definitely the best one. But I did really enjoy the book. Full of secrets and lots of Gideon. I would recommend it to a friend, but I know that as I read through the series there won't be so much to look forward too.
