Praise for Reflected in You"The steamy sex scenes and intriguing plot twists will have readers clamoring for more."--Library Journal "Talk about an emotional book. Gideon and Eva have now solidified their place in my list of favorite couples."--Fiction Vixen "Continues to grab you by the throat and does not let you go."--HeroesandHeartbreakers.com More Praise for Sylvia Day and the Crossfire series "The rush of erotic fiction into the hands of mainstream readers invites consideration of whether twenty-first-century society is flirting with a new normative sexual epoch. Day's novel explores this issue unflinchingly and compellingly by pairing her narrative of sexual temptation and emotional risk with character studies that mirror divisive social and cultural issues of identity, trauma, repression, and liberation."--Andrea Cremer, New York Times bestselling author "You know you're in for a good book when other authors--and I mean LOTS of other authors--recommend it."--USA Today "A page-turner!"--Access Hollywood Live "Bared to You takes a sensual look at a darker side of love."--Shelf Awareness
"[A] highly charged story that flows and hits the mark."--Kirkus Reviews "Full of emotional angst, scorching love scenes, and a compelling story line."--Dear Author "Will have you furiously flipping pages."--Glamour "Sophisticated, engaging, clever and sweet."--The Irish Independent "Superb writing...I can't wait to see what Day does next!"--RT Book Reviews "When it comes to brewing up scorchingly hot sexual chemistry, Day has few literary rivals."--Booklist

Gideon & Eva's story continues on with more drama, more passion, more twists and just more!!
I love Sylvia's way of writing, the attention to detail is spot on - not to much or too little, it's just perfect.
The one thing that takes a mark of is that Eva is starting to annoy me with regards to Brett!!
She's just married Gideon, they are head over heels obsessed with each other yet have so much self doubt, everyone's standing in their way, Corriene, Deanna, Dr Lucas, the list is endless but apart from Corriene, the main one is Brett! Eva's past lover who now wants her back, she's supposedly keeping her distance (esp after she kissed him at the start and not only broke Gideon's heart but caused a full blown brawl!!!) yet she sends him random texts with a hello and a smiley face?? Goes to premier of his song which is about her?? Ah hello... Gideon??!!!
I know who I'd want to spend my time with and it most def isn't Brett!!!!
Bar that, it's all good!
By the end of the book I couldn't help but feel depressed and sorry for Gideon. His no holds barred, possessive/protective love deserves to be lavished on someone better than the Eva in this book. Extraneous story lines are added and developed for no better reason than they allow the author to write FOURTH and FIFTH books. The story could easily have been concluded in a third book and it's simply taking too long.
I prefer to imagine Gideon and Eva riding into the sunset at the end of Reflected In You. No I won't be buying books four and five.
In the previous book we saw exactly how far Gideon is prepared to go to keep Eva safe but now he is facing the fallout. Not only does he have to try and come to terms with what he did but he also has to make sure nothing can be pinned on him and he can only hope that it doesn't change the way Eva looks at him. He is pushed into taking extreme measures to keep his secret and it shows just how far his and Eva's relationship has progressed when she is able to trust him no matter how bad things look. Their relationship still isn't perfect by a long shot but things are better than they ever have been. I really want to see the pair of them talk to each other more rather than constantly using sex as a way of communicating but it was good to see them start to get a handle on their jealousy issues and have a little faith in each other.
One thing I think I missed was the conflict that was so prevalent in previous books, there are things that happen that could have added more drama to the story but on the whole they were handled much more quickly and with a lot less stress than before. This is partly because of the growth that both Gideon and Eva have gone through but it does make for a less dramatic read and lets face it one of the reasons we love this couple so much is because of the drama! I never thought I'd hear myself say this (especially about an erotic romance novel) but I actually reached the point where I started to get bored of the constant sex scenes. As you'd expect from Sylvia Day the scenes were all well written and incredibly hot but there are only so many ways to describe inserting tab A into slot B before it starts to get a little repetitive. Gideon is still one of the sexiest literary heroes I've come across so I don't want to lose the sex scenes completely but I'm hoping to see a little less of them in the next book and I'd love more focus to be on the couple spending time together outside of the bedroom.
I was really pleased that we have finally started to learn a little more about Gideon's past, we are still left with plenty of questions about what happened to cause his nightmares but it was nice to get a few answers. I found myself getting incredibly annoyed with his mother in this book which surprised me because she has always seemed so nice before. Her attitude and behaviour was completely out of order this time around so it was nice to see Eva stand up for her man. I'm hoping for some kind of showdown with Eva's mother in the future too because she is driving me crazy with the way she stalks Eva, the way that everyone just panders to her only makes her behaviour worse. Then you have the side story with Cary that shocked me and made me want to shake some sense into him! I still can't quite believe what he's got himself mixed up in this time and I'm really hoping that he sorts himself out soon.
Although Entwined with You wasn't my favourite book in the series it was still a great book and I'm happy to have had my much needed Gideon fix. I'm glad that the story didn't end with a huge cliffhanger so as much as I'm looking forward to the next instalment I'm not quite as desperate to get my hands on it as I was this one. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for Gideon and Eva and I find myself feeling happy that we have another 2 books to look forward to.
