Review: I’ve waited with baited breath for the final book in Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series to release it’s finally here. I dropped everything I was doing because I couldn’t wait to see how Gideon and Eva ended. Well…not ended; but ended their time with us rather. And although I enjoyed the book very much, I was a bit disappointed…sad even
I don’t feel like I need to go too deep into the plot because this is book 5 and if you don’t know what is going on by now then you should stop here and start with Bared to You to catch up.
I love these two characters. Their burning passion and love for each other is what kept me transfixed with this series. Gideon and Eva are emotionally damaged people that shouldn’t work well together but WORK so well together. They fight hard and dirty, but their fights are always for each other not with each other even if the other doesn’t initially see it that way. This story is told from both POVs so we are privy to what’s going on in both their heads and why they love and fight so hard for that love.
Now onto why I was a tad bit disappointed…I feel like some of the drama injected into this story was unnecessary and some of the unresolved issues from previous stories weren’t tied up. I have so many unanswered questions that I feel a little let down so for that I will give this ending of such beloved characters 3.5 stars. Sylvia I waited too darn long to still have questions. Maybe that’s what you intended??
