One With You by Sylvia Day book review

13435492_1026629170750809_6984548134828128562_n

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.

Afterburn/Aftershock Book Review

Afterburn & Aftershock (Jax & Gia #1-2)

Never mix business with pleasure. Never bring politics into the bedroom. In a way I did both when I took Jackson Rutledge as a lover. I can’t say I wasn’t warned.

Two years later, he was back. Walking into a deal I’d worked hard to close. Under the tutelage of Lei Yeung, one of the sharpest businesswomen in New York, I had picked up a thing or two since Jax walked away. I wasn’t the girl he once knew, but he hadn’t changed. Unlike the last time we’d drifted into each other’s lives, I knew exactly what I was dealing with… and how addictive his touch could be.

The inner circle of glamour, sex, and privilege was Jax’s playground–but this time, I knew the rules of the game. In the cutthroat business world, one adage rules all: keep your enemies close and your ex-lovers closer…


Another take on the Eva and Gideon, Crossfire series by Sylvia day, but in the lives of Jax and Gia…. Jax a wealthy strong and influential man in the political career and Gia a woman from a close family creating a popular family restaurant, while she wishes to expand others restaurant careers.

I was captivated by the first couple pages, this book is short if only Sylvia Day could make it into a series.
This book contains so much erotic content and a romance that was once broken….
The story of Gia and Jax is split into two, Afterburn and Aftershock, both short stories which get to the Juicy stuff whilst telling a hard and emotional love story between two different worlds of people.

Gia and Jax were a couple two years ago, Gia loved him and he walked out on her in Vegas, leaving her to believe he just used her, he was toxic… Struggling to get back on track she found herself a new job/career which kept her busy in all aspects of her life, only to find herself working with Jax two years later, the two collide.  The two face huge political issues which threaten their relationship and can Gia trust the man who walked out on her in the first place, who has too many secrets.
Will their relationship conquer all.

I was hooked from the beginning to the end and could not put the story down once I had started, this is definitely a must read, even the reviews are fantastic.  I gave this book a 5 star review on Goodreads.  Erotic, romantic and Captivating.
