One With You by Sylvia Day book review


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 fifth book in the Crossfire series.  In this book I saw how married life was treating Gideon and Eva.  They have both kept their wedding quiet, so that their marriage was more intimate.
Through the book Eva and Gideon begin to tell the people close to them that they are married.  Eva’s mum and dad take it harder.  Her mum wants another wedding, while her dad becomes extremely angry/ disappointed as he wanted to be the one to give her away.
However this did not ruin Eva and Gideon’s mood.

There were so many things I loved about this book, I liked both the main characters.  Throughout the book I was able to read both Eva and Gideon’s side of the story, and I could really understand why they acted the way they did.

This story kept me hooked, I read it in 4 sittings.  I found that there were so many twist and turns that I did not expect to happen.  For instance the story about Monica (Eva’s mum) this developed halfway through the book, but it was so unexpected especially from this genre of books.   I also liked how the book didn’t drag, if there was nothing to say about the characters at a particular time, the story would jump to a day of their lives where there was something to talk about.


“You got the fairy tale right, But Gideon’s the beauty.  I’m the beast” – Eva

My favourite part about this book would be the end, obviously I don’t want to say what happens because that would ruin it all for those of you waiting to read it.
But for those of you who have read the ending, you will understand why this was my favourite. There were so many feelings, and the way the story unfolded was clever and completely unexpected, but I feel it was brought together nicely.

” Kiss me like you love me, Ace” -Eva

This whole book had me laughing at times and crying at other times.  I definitely felt loads of emotions while reading this book because it felt so real.  The story of these two characters is so dramatic, but full of romance it was hard not to keep reading all the way to the end.  Sylvia Day is an amazing author, and always makes each character completely different from one another, whilst giving each character a a background which is compelling.

“Puppy love” 

My only downside is that I wish this book would carry on for longer, but I liked how the book ended, it was fast and appropriate.  I feel maybe if it did carry on that there wouldn’t be much more to tell.  Overall I love the book and i think I love it more than the other books in the series, there was so much more to tell in this book, and the story line was beautiful.  There was still the erotica raunchy side to the book but there was also, growth, sadness and family.  I couldn’t have asked for a better book.

One with you: coming soon 


Super excited that the finale to the Crossfire series will be released on the 5th of April here in the UK!  This is the fifth and final story about Gideon and Eva. The previous 4 were amazing but I am excited to see if their relationship finally gets on track.  If you haven’t read this series you need to, they are very cheap on Amazon and Sylvia Day is a fantastic author and I am always lost in her books.
