I read the Finnish book, “Sinun omasi”. Contains spoilers for Entwined with You.

Synopsis:
Gideon Cross. Falling in love with him was the easiest thing I’ve ever done. It happened instantly. Completely. Irrevocably.Marrying him was a dream come true. Staying married to him is the fight of my life. Love transforms. Ours is both a refuge from the storm and the most violent of tempests. Two damaged souls entwined as one.We have bared our deepest, ugliest secrets to one another. Gideon is the mirror that reflects all my flaws … and all the beauty I couldn’t see. He has given me everything. Now, I must prove I can be the rock, the shelter for him that he is for me. Together, we could stand against those who work so viciously to come between us.But our greatest battle may lie within the very vows that give us strength. Committing to love was only the beginning. Fighting for it will either set us free … or break us apart.


One with You is the last book of Crossfire series which is about Gideon and Eva’s ups and downs in their relationship. Gideva has been through a lot.

I know this was supposed to be a trilogy and honestly I think it should’ve stayed that way. I love Gideon and Eva. I could even say that they’re my favorite contemporary book couple but besides Gideon opening up more and Eva being happier their relationship is pretty the same as in book three. I already said in my review of “Entwined with You” that in that book their relationship took steps back, probably because Sylvia Day didn’t plan to write more than three books.

Gideon had so much character growth between Entwined with You and this one. Eva leaving him made him realize some things and he started to really open up, not just for Eva but for their therapist too. I loved to see him with his friends and family also.

“Who do you think monsters marry, you stupid bitch?” I walked back to her. “Pretty little breakable girls? Or other monsters?” I pushed up into her face. “You got the fairy tale right. But Gideon’s the beauty. I’m the beast.”

I love books with sexual content but I also enjoyed it when these two tried to go without sex and just talk and go to dates instead. Eva never got that when she was a teenager, so it meant a lot for her when Gideon was ready to try even if he hated the idea of having to keep his hands off her. I love how possessive and jealous they are each other but they can still trust even with their insecurities.

I enjoyed this book a lot but I didn’t see point with all plot lines and there were so many loose ends. I finally started to like Cary and I would’ve liked to know what happened with him and his love interest, why Gideon’s mom never believed him, what happened to Gideon’s exes… there’s just so many things I still want to know.

  1. Jamsu I stopped after book three. Don’t misunderstand me I love this couple but I was furious when I learned what was meant to be a trilogy became and “X”logy. Your review is comforting me in my decision
