Available now on Amazon and B&N
4.5 Dark and Dangerous Stars

Momma's Review
*Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review* let me just start this review off by saying that I LOVE Sylvia Day, no I mean like really LOVE her!  I've read almost every book she's written....including a few paranormal and historicals which I NEVER never ever ever. 
But I am going to give an honest review of EWY, not just a crazy fangirl piece...hopefully!
I was so absolutely excited and honored to receive a copy of this book.  Some of my readers know that the Crossfire Series is really the reason I started a review blog.  I was literally telling anyone and everyone about the series and once my friends got tired of hearing about it I took to Facebook and started the MommaRomance page.  I am head over heels in love with Gideon and probably always will be.  I'm pretty sure there is absolutely Nothing that he could do to ever make me not go crazy for him!
I did get a late start with this book because my mini me's were being a bit testy, and that meant that I started seeing the reviews and comments coming through on Facebook.  I happened across a few of them and they seemed negative and made me really worried. I'm not sure if it was those posts, the fact that I hadn't had a full nights sleep in close to a week or that I was just way too amped up to read this book from the long wait but I had a bit of a hard time getting into it again.....and boy did that make for a sad momma!  I actually put the book down and took a night off to start again the next day.
That said, once I got a bit of rest and started again I finally started enjoying the book.  Now, there were a few serious things that bugged me which is why I only gave the book 4.5 stars.  There were some really big questions from Reflected In You that were answered in Entwined With You, but they were passed over so quickly I almost missed them completely.  There were also some new events that happened in Entwined With You that didn't seem necessary but I trust that Sylvia Day has a plan ;)
Also, I am so very freaking excited that there are 2 more books to come in Crossfire Series!  And, as Sylvia has confirmed, the fact that the books have been picked up for some type of TV makes my fucking year!!!!!!!  I just hope that it moves forward more quickly than other series that have been picked up recently and that we finally get to see Gideon in action!
It's really hard to write about this freakin book without divulging secrets....ughhhhhhh
Sylvia Day stays true to form in Entwined With You and has written some of the steamiest sex scenes I've ever read!  From night clubs to airplanes to Gideon's amazing penthouse office, there is never a dull moment between Evan and Gideon!
The Heroine:
Eva Trammel
Eva has always been a strong heroine, it's one of the reasons that I truly liked this series.  In Entwined with you she is a bit softer but really shows a back bone a few times in this book.  This time she has to play a part of a single women in parts of the book so there is some definite love/hate going on but she stays true to herself and her history in the series.
 The Hero:
Gideon Cross
Gideon Cross is just fucking perfect in every sense of the word.  He would literally kill for the ones he loves!  There isn't much to say about Gideon other than that!  In Entwined With You we get to see more into his feelings for Eva and how far his love for her goes.  *ps, how perfect does Henry Cavill look in that pic, just picture him with a cranberry and vodka!*
Momma's Favorite Quotes:
“Angel, a crowd of millions couldn’t hide
you from me. I found you once. I’ll always find you.”   -Gideon Cross
“I look at you, angel, and I want you so badly. I want to be with you, listen to you, talk to you. I want to hear you laugh and hold you when you cry. I want to sit next to you, breathe the same air, share the same life. I want to wake up to you like this every day forever. I want you.”   -Gideon Cross
“Reminds me of the red dress you wore the first time I had you. That was it for me, you know. You devastated me. There was no coming back from that.”   -Gideon Cross
“More like Cross blew your circuits during one of his sexathons. Still can’t get over that man’s stamina. Wish he’d swing my way and wear me out.”   -Carey
