One with You by Sylvia Day
Description: 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.
Heartbreakingly and seductively poignant, One with You is the breathlessly awaited finale to the Crossfire® saga, the searing love story that has captivated millions of readers worldwide.
I’ve been on the fence about this series. While undeniably a captivating read, I had a hard time connecting with either Eva or Gideon. I also felt the fourth book was essentially a repeat of the problems facing the hero and the heroine in the third book. Finally, I’m not sure I can support a couple who needs couple therapy within a week or two of dating one of another. Okay, that’s my rant about the issues I have had with the series.
I did think this book was a satisfying end to the series. Eva and Gideon were able to constructively work on the problems facing their relationship. They addressed the external issues and actually worked on the internal ones without just using sex as a fixer. I did appreciate that both characters worked hard at overcoming admittedly traumatic pasts and were focused on the future. As with the previous books, Sylvia Day knows how to pull the reader into a lush and sensual world. Overall, this book was stronger than some of the previous ones in the series and was a satiating conclusion.
Rating: 3 out of 5.
