Erotica Review: Entwined with You by Sylvia Day

Entwined with You (Crossfire, #3) 

The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts, and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires…
From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside–so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat.
No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.
Entwined by our secrets, we tried to defy the odds. We made our own rules and surrendered completely to the exquisite power of possession…

Gideon is back and did I missed him so much, but this time things look less complicated and more difficult for he relationship. Eva is such a great girl and of course she accepted Gideon back just because he asked her. Such a great moment when these two lovebirds find each other again.
 
After everything that happened with Nathan and all those days they spend apart, it was really awesome seeing them together and trying to find a way after all those years apart it was really difficult. I liked seeing Eva also breaking a few bonds with her mother and trying to live with her own money.
 
Gideon has some romantic moments in this book that are so beautiful. Can I say that I want those days in the island? I’m trying really hard not to say some spoilers, but the book also has a investigation. I thought this one was more centered in their feelings and trying to find a new life together, and I really liked those moments, especially the sexy parts because Gideon has some serious stamina!!
 
Now I can’t wait for some news on the next books and discover what Gideon has to face now.

Review: Rush by Maya Banks

Rush (Breathless, #1)

Gabe, Jace, and Ash: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They’re accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Gabe, it’s making one particular fantasy come true with a woman who was forbidden fruit. Now she’s ripe for the picking…
When Gabe Hamilton saw Mia Crestwell walk into the ballroom for his hotel’s grand opening, he knew he was going to hell for what he had planned. After all, Mia is his best friend’s little sister. Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires.
Gabe has starred in Mia’s fantasies more than once, ever since she was a teenager with a huge crush on her brother’s best friend. So what if Gabe’s fourteen years older? Mia knows he’s way out of her league, but her attraction has only grown stronger with time. She’s an adult now, and there’s no reason not to act on her most secret desires.
As Gabe pulls her into his provocative world, she realizes there’s a lot she doesn’t know about him or how exacting his demands can be. Their relationship is intense and obsessive, but as they cross the line from secret sexual odyssey to something deeper, their affair runs the risk of being exposed—and vulnerable to a betrayal far more intimate than either expected.

I love Maya Banks style and this new series sounds more like erotica than a contemporary, but I actually liked Mia, even if she’s young and had no idea about dominant man in the first few chapters, we can see her trying things for Gabe and discovering a different side of a sex life that is really fitting for her.

I was not a fan of Gabe during some parts and he had some reasons for his reactions and his plans. Another woman hurt him and he’s also trying to understand his parents divorce. He’s controlling and very sure if his needs but I liked how attracted he became during the sex and how much he lots control.

This couple was a nice fit, because they learned together about real love and discovered a nice relationship can be created with some plans and rules.

A woman without a past becomes the pawn of the man who controls her future…

Dev Santos discovers her unconscious and battered, with no memory of who she is. All she knows is that she’s dangerous. Charged with protecting his people’s most vulnerable secrets, Dev is duty-bound to eliminate all threats. It’s a task he’s never hesitated to complete…until he finds himself drawn to a woman who might prove to be the enemy’s most insidious weapon yet.

Stripped of her memories by a shadowy oppressor and programmed to carry out cold-blooded murder, Katya Haas is fighting desperately for her sanity. Her only hope is Dev. But how can she expect to gain the trust of a man who could very well be her next target? For in this game, one must die…

 

Photobucket This series was great so far, but this book was not my favorite and for me it was mostly the fact I missed some changeling mojo. The couple was a bit too frost for my taste and I wanted to love more because Dev was such a great guy.

 
Katya was such a strong girl but in this book she lost her appeal to me and became a bit boring, but I liked the fact she fought all the way to retrieve her memories and tried to make the right thing. I just didn’t connect with her.
 
Dev was smart enough not to trust her without some precautions. I liked that about him, but he just left some sense along the book and followed her like a puppy to points deserted. Not my favorite action.
 
I liked the final. It was surprising and very different, plus the changelings are back. Just wish Councilor Ming was death already.

This book was a bit different from the rest of the series because I never thought it was possivel for two different animals to mate. Okay these two species are somewhat similar, but they have so strong personalities that it was almost impossible to see them both together without a lot of fight.
 
The world is crazier than ever and we see the seed of a revolution inside the PsyNet, but of course the councilors are trying to stop all sort of manifestation and killing anyone involved with the so called break.
 
But there’s also lots of sexy scenes and we see the beginning of a new great romance. At first it was strange how they could overcome rules and their own pact. But I actually loved these two.
 
Mercy is strong and very capable, she works directly with Lucas and is very important to the pact, but also a very alpha woman that needed a even more stronger male to surrender.
 
Riley was a very closed person and we know how much he suffered trying to save his sister. But we could discover during the book, he feels guilty for what happened and nobody knew about his secrets.

Ahh, it’s Dorian book! And I wanted him to be happy with his animal, but he’s so much better than that, he became an incredible sentinel just to prove the pact he’s strong and can be an active part off it. He deserve an incredible woman and I agree with Nalini that Ashaya is perfect to him.
 
She’s strong and a part of the revolution, she helped save children and fights everyday to keeps secrets from the Council. She has secrets of her own and even battles to keep her twin at bay. She’s like Wonder Woman!!
 
These two are perfect together and I hoped during the book Ashaya would help Dorian bring his animal out. But the book is more than just that, we also have the humans showing they want to fight too, and the packs have to handle attacks from all the sides.
 
This was a very action packed book and I loved every minute of it. Ashaya was perfect during her escape moments and so powerful to fight the PsyNet.

Clay Bennett is a powerful DarkRiver sentinel, but he grew up in the slums with his human mother, never knowing his changeling father. As a young boy without the bonds of Pack, he tried to stifle his animal nature. He failed…and committed the most extreme act of violence, killing a man and losing his best friend, Talin, in the bloody aftermath. Everything good in him died the day he was told that she, too, was dead.

Talin McKade barely survived a childhood drenched in bloodshed and terror. Now a new nightmare is stalking her life–the street children she works to protect are disappearing and turning up dead. Determined to keep them safe, she unlocks the darkest secret in her heart and returns to ask the help of the strongest man she knows…

Clay lost Talin once. He will not let her go again, his hunger to possess her, a clawing need born of the leopard within. As they race to save the innocent, Clay and Talin must face the violent truths of their past…or lose everything that ever mattered.

Photobucket
The is the friends becomes lovers story that actually worked for me, but maybe because I wanted Clay to have something good in his life. He suffers so much without his family. And after growing up with the humans having to hide his animal must have been awful.
Talin was for me a very strong human, is she’s just a human, but after the story progress we discover she’s more than that and is crucial to defend her truth and save those poor’s kids.
I liked Talin value and her strong motivations, but wanted her to search for Clay before this, because he’s tormented by their past and how she left him.
I liked this two working together and how they tried to learn from the past. For me Talin deserved forgiveness and her happy ending was well deserved. Clay was a protector from the very begin in their relationship and they worked the kinks out.

As an Arrow, an elite soldier in the Psy Council ranks, Judd Lauren was forced to do terrible things in the name of his people. Now he is a defector, and his dark abilities have made him the most deadly of assassins – cold, pitiless, unfeeling. Until he meets Brenna…

Brenna Shane Kincaid was an innocent before she was abducted – and had her mind violated – by a serial killer. Her sense of evil runs so deep, she fears she could become a killer herself. Then the first dead body is found, victim of a familiar madness. Judd is her only hope, yet her sensual changeling side rebels against the inhuman chill of his personality, even as desire explodes between them. Shocking and raw, their passion is a danger that threatens not only their hearts, but their very lives…

Photobucket
This series keeps getting better and in this book the author showed a different side of both species. We got a new relationship between an ex-Arrow and a Psy who abandoned the PsyNet to save his family and is a very dark and powerful man. Judd is now refugee on the SnowDancer pack and is helping the wolfs against the Psy, one of his missions he helped save Brenna.
Brenna story is related to the first book and is traumatized by her past and how a twisted Psy tried to kill her. Now Brenna is suffering again because the pack discovered an spy is working from the inside. A wolf is responsible for what happened to her in the first place.
These two were hot together and we now know more of the Psy way of hiding it’s problems and Judd is responsible for a very dark side of the Psy revenge. He has issues about the past and is trying to work on the new revolution.
I liked this romance and the action was also very dark and showed a good side of this future. Brenna was strong and very beautiful girl, and I loved how she fought for how things were and she just wants her life back.
