This series is my guilty pleasure crack series. It’s so over the top crazy, yet I can’t look away. There has been much drama due to the fact this once trilogy is now drawn out to be five books. I knew this going in, so the lack of complete closure at the end of this book wasn’t a shock (although the end is VERY abrupt and felt odd). I was still quite frustrated with this book though. It has the hot, hot (did I mention hot?) sex in it, and the crazy jealous, possessive, I’ll die without you attitudes that makes it so cracky. But I need more than that to keep me going and this book lacks a solid story.
“I ache for you,” he said hoarsely. “Crave you constantly. Snap your fingers and I’m hard.”
*snap* (any boners? No?)
The book starts right where book two leaves off, as Eva and Gideon must come to terms with the fact that Gideon killed Eva’s abuser. The police haven’t named Gideon a suspect, but the both of them are still nervous and decide to keep their relationship a secret from the public until the police decide to shelve the case. Otherwise, there isn’t a lot going on. Eva has a falling out with her mother. Cary is still torn between Tatiana and his boyfriend. Gideon wants Eva to come work for him but she declines. I’m pretty sure something bad has happened to Megumi, Eva’s coworker and friend, but it’s all just a secretive build-up in this one. Gideon is still have night terrors and can’t sleep in the same bed as Eva.
There is a significant development in Eva and Gideon’s relationship, but it wasn’t unexpected. All of this is not to say this was a horrible book. I wasn’t really bored. I still like Eva and Gideon. I’m actually not upset there are five books now to the series. I just wish something more would have developed in this book. I went in hoping it wasn’t just a filler book but it really is. But let’s face it – I read it for the dirty sex.
“Jesus, Eva.” HIs cock thickened in my grip.
Brushing my parted lips across his, I deftly opened his slacks. “I want to be your dirtiest fantasy,” I whispered. “I want to be filthy for you.”
And for those that have read it – the airplane sex scene. Oh Gideon.
Will I read book #4? Hell yes! It’s my crack. Sylvia Day writes a good tortured hero, and super dirty sex. I just hope book four has something else going on besides the sex. I’m also not sure Gideon and Eva’s relationship made any progress towards being in a healthier spot. They feel stuck in a “let’s have sex, it will solve everything” mode.
What are your thoughts? Happy there are five books? Frustrated?
