APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Gideon Cross and Eva Tramell’s romance is one for the ages. And the last book in Sylvia Day’s wildly popular Crossfire series is no less of a rollercoaster ride than the crazy-in-love protagonists’ relationship. Gideon and Eva have eloped, but obviously theirs isn’t a happily-ever-after story. One With You was everything we’d hoped for: a page-turning showcase of Day’s talent for setting a scene and getting into her troubled lovers’ heads.
Prolific erotic romance author Day's fifth Crossfire novel brings the story of Gideon and Eva to a satisfying conclusion. The couple, now wed, are attempting to keep their marriage secret until they can celebrate with their loved ones, but multiple threats by vindictive people from their pasts undermine that effort. Savvy in business and social media, the two lovers cleverly combat their enemies while also managing to nourish their personal relationship through therapy, friends, and steady integration into each other's families. 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. In one particularly moving scene, when Gideon desperately begs Eva to believe that he did not cheat on her despite what looks like incriminating evidence, her simple "I believe you" offers a stark contrast to his childhood experience of being disbelieved when he reported abuse. Glamorous people, swanky settings, steamy sex, and passionate married love make this a heartwarming, gratifying conclusion to the series.
It's been a long time since a series of books have keep me so enthralled.
My biggest disappointment is that it was the last of the Crossfire series!!
