Entwined with You by Sylvia Day
Release date: June 4, 2013
My rating: 4 stars
"If souls could be mated with wishes, ours would be inextricably entwined."
This book wasn't exactly what I was expecting. It was more about the connection between Eva and Gideon than anything. And boy, do we get the point after this book. Their need for one another is almost over-whelming. It is all-consuming. The connection these two share is none like any other story out there. The book is definitely well-written. We can feel much of what they feel throughout the book.
"We'd mistaken our ferocious mutual captivation for lust until we realized we couldn't breathe without each other."
At some point, one has to say enough is enough, you would think. At first thought, I did think that. But one I got to the end of the book, I was reeling with more consuming thoughts on the need these two share. They are the rocks the hold each other down. They are connected in ways that almost teeters to an unhealthy bind... One could see their need, which they call love, as being unhealthy. However, you can look at it as being open and honest with all feelings they both have. They don't deny any emotion, positive or negative.
"Cary was my touchstone, my voice of reason, my favorite shoulder to lean on--and a brother to me in every way that mattered."
Connections with all of the other characters in this story become deeper. More secrets all of the way around start to trickle out. Don't think this book is just about Eva and Gideon. It's not. There are secrets involving everyone is this story. We get some. Some, obviously will be coming in the future, and I have a feeling they will be earth-shattering when they do. Many seem to be upset about this... The trilogy being turned into a series. But, I have to admit, with everything that happens in this book, I am not disappointed in the fact that there will be another book. A lot happens in this book, with many questions still unanswered and more questions that need answering.
Be prepared for some shocking events in this book. Some will leave you giddy. Although, I was happy for some of the big things in this book, I wish they were done a little differently. However, I am not the author, so that is not my call to make. Just be warned, this book will make you both mad and happy at the same time. There are some truly sappy parts, which aren't expected, but I welcomed them nonetheless.
"For all his polished urbanity, Gideon was an untamed animal behind closed doors, a lover who bared me to the soul every time he mad love to me."
