Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads

My name is Shayna Renee and reading is my passion. I can’t wait to escape reality and dive in to a passion filled love story! I own a Nook, Kindle, iPad, and way too many paperback books to count. I never find myself without a way to read a chapter here and there. My favorite type of book is one that can pull every type of emotion out of me. The uglier the cry I get from reading, the better! It all started when a friend of mine urged me to read a little book called Fifty Shades of Grey. Have you all heard of it? Yeah, I thought so. I found myself wanting to see what else was out there, what was so fascinating about this particular genre. On my journey, I discovered authors like J.R. Ward, Shayla Black, Sylvia Day, and Sylvain Reynard and I was just hooked! After reading these fabulous books for a while, I discovered I really had no one close by to share my thoughts with. That’s when I decided to start a blog; a review blog that could help me get my thoughts out there and in turn get other people’s recommendations and opinions. I absolutely LOVE the authors and romance readers I have met through this journey, and I only hope to continue sharing my adoration of books with you!

Entwined with You (A Crossfire Novel)

Entwined with You - Sylvia Day *4 1/2 STARS*
Posted @ http://shaynareneesspicyreads.blogspot.com

"You were with me. The whole time. There wasn't a second that passed when you weren't on my mind. You own me, Eva. Wherever I am, whatever I'm doing, I belong to you."

Just like you, I have been waiting patiently for the third (and i thought final) installment to the Crossfire series. Now don't laugh at me, but I had it on my calender with a reminder alert ever since I found out what the release date was going to be. Yes, I'm THAT big of a nerd! This series definitely was at the top of my "favorite things" list; favorite author, favorite series, favorite book boyfriend." With Entwined with You, Sylvia Day gave us more, more, more! More intensity, more sexual heat, more love, and more frustrations. Even though Entwined with You wasn't my favorite out of the series, it still rocked my world!

"You fucking own me, Eva. I'll be damned if I don't own you back."

Oh Gideon and Eva! Your love for each other scares the living shit out of me! Seriously, just when I think, oh god, too intense, too intense, I sit back and think to myself, I fucking want that for myself! I want to love someone so much, that it physically hurts when you are not with them. I want someone to love me so much that they will drop everything and anything to be by my side, protect me from all the evil in the world, and just be my world. THAT my friends is exactly the kind of love that Gideon and Eva share. THAT is the kind of love that takes people forever to find, the other half of themselves.
"Day One of my life was the day I met you."

Entwined with You picks up where Reflected in You, Crossfire #2, ended, the aftermath of the bombshell that was dropped! To find out the length that Gideon would go through to protect Eva from her past astonishes me. These two both have pasts that have scarred them in some way, and they both just want to take on the other's pain, it's such a beautiful thing.

"We are totally dysfunctional." "I prefer 'selectively deviant.' But we'll keep that to ourselves."

Looking from the outside in, some people might say that Gideon and Eva's relationship is unhealthy, or it's like a train wreck waiting to happen. It might be all that, but you can't argue that when they get together, they are HOT as HELL! Their sexual encounters are sometimes hot and heavy, and other times they are soft and tender. There is a scene in one of the clubs that Gideon owns....WOW! It's THAT good! Good enough, that you just might need a cold shower afterwards. So HOT in fact, I read the scene over and over again! Don't judge me! *smirks*

I want to give a little shout-out to my other favorite couple Mark and Steven. Mark is Eva's boss, and I am SO jealous of the working relationship they have with each other by the way! Steven is Mark's boyfriend and they are SO FUCKIN' CUTE together it kills me! Big things in store for these guys!

All in all, Sylvia Day rocked this book! I was a good girl and stayed away from any kind of reviews until I finished the book, so I was one of those readers that said WHAT THE FUCK?! at the end of Entwined with You. After learning that there were going to be more installments, I was so THRILLED! I can't get enough of this gut wrenching, emotionally exhausting, sexy roller coaster ride! Bring it on woman! I need more answers!!!
