Synopsis: The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts, and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires… 

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…

Review: Never having read any of the other books in the “Crossfire” series, I didn’t feel as though I missed much by starting with ‘Entwined with You’. Gideon Cross is willing to die for Eva and obviously willing to kill for her, but Eva’s heart is broken after their very public and humiliating break-up. What Eva doesn’t know is Gideon still loves her very much and wants to be with her forever, so when he explains everything they have to figure out a way to carry on their relationship in secret. This is only until the police investigation is complete into the murder of Eva’s abuser. Enter Eva’s ex, Brett, who Eva’s still attracted to – which happens, obviously there was something there for her to be with him the first place. The plot development was pretty slow with lots and lots of uber-steamy sex to fill the pages. I wasn’t a big fan of Eva’s as she seemed pretty wishy-washy and easily influenced. I think Gideon needs a truly strong woman and I’m not sure Eva’s the one. Regardless, they are the ones who want to be together forever and (almost) everyone is happy for them. Out of everyone, my favorite character was Cary, Eva’s roommate and best friend, but there were some very strange plot twists with his story which didn’t make sense in line with who he was in my opinion. The last part of the book seemed to be a set up for the next book, which was confusing at first because it had been my understanding this was a trilogy, but now there are supposed to be five books total in the series. I’m not so sure die-hard fans of this series will be happy with the ending…
