Captivated By You By Sylvia Day

Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own.

The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened up old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp; my greatest fears becoming my reality; my love tested in ways I wasn't sure I was strong enough to bear.

At the brightest time in our lives, the darkness of his past encroached and threatened everything we'd worked so hard for. We faced a terrible choice: the familiar safety of the lives we'd had before each other or the fight for a future that suddenly seemed an impossible and hopeless dream . . .

Fourth book in the crossfire series and I'm so disappointed. We waited a year and a half, so we forgot most of the characters and what was going on anyway, but I read the end of Entwined with you before starting this one and it still didn't jog my memory on who was who. 

I started the book thinking it was going to take some time to get into, which I never had to do with the others. I felt like I was reading a diary half the time. I struggled to keep focused mostly which annoyed me and the sex scenes were blunt, straight to the point and not as sensual as the other books. I felt like they were two f**k buddies and not lovers. 
I also thought Gideon hadn't grown since the other books. I was hoping for more progress. I just wish there was more. I didn't feel like the book gave us anything other than their daily routines. There was nothing there to make me want to read the next one that's for sure. 

2* I am hoping we don't have to wait nearly two years for the next one and that she writes something about the actual story in it. I really am disappointed because I love this series.

The Cross Fire Series By Sylvia Day

The cross Fire Series 1-3

Eva has a troubled past just like Gideon, so when the pair are drawn together like magnets, only been together opens wounds they would rather stay closed......
