Captivated by You : A Crossfire Novel Paperback
by Sylvia Day
Part of the Crossfire series
Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life.
My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own.
The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh.
Instead they opened up old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows.
I felt him slipping from my grasp; my greatest fears becoming my reality; my love tested in ways I wasn't sure I was strong enough to bear.
At the brightest time in our lives, the darkness of his past encroached and threatened everything we'd worked so hard for.
We faced a terrible choice: the familiar safety of the lives we'd had before each other or the fight for a future that suddenly seemed an impossible and hopeless dream...

Review by v_allery
I really, really, really did not want to be disappointed in this book and it breaks my heart to give a two-star rating to anything that has to do with Gideon and Eva, but this is by far the worst book in the series. As much as I liked the first and second one, and was surprised by how I did not particularly like the third, Captivated by You is just... meh.Gideon and Eva used to be this royally screwed up power couple. Each of them had problems you would not wish on your enemy (child abuse is not something to be taken lightly), and it made me feel hopeful when two such people found each other and fell in love (yes, I am a sucker for a good romance). And then it all went downhill from there. Captivated in You is, in a nutshell, the same conversation being had over and over and over and over and over again. Nothing of importance happens at all. Eva is, like, "Ace, you should talk to me about things that bother you" and Gideon is, like, "Grrrrrrrrr".I was not opposed to Sylvia Day deciding to have 5 books in the series instead of 3, expecting sex to be actually sexy, romance to be heartclenching, plot to have meaning. And unfortunately I am now very disappointed.
