FROM #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR SYLVIA DAY
The final chapter in the global blockbuster Crossfire quintet

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.

review

You’ve changed my life Eva. And you did the impossible. You transformed me. I like who I am now. I never thought that would happen.

Some love never dies, and some love stories never end. This is one of those stories. In One with You, the final installment of The Crossfire Series, we see the culmination of epic devotion. The journey we have taken with beloved characters comes to an end, and we traverse into a new chapter for Gideon and Eva. The bittersweet conclusion to a series that literally touched my soul, has left me smiling through my tears. What a voyage it has been.

Ms. Day has given us a beautiful narrative full of vibrancy and passion. A beautiful tapestry wrought with pain and joy, but most of all love. We are all broken, but it’s how we pick up our broken and weave our pieces back together that determines our path. She’s wonderfully illustrated life on life’s terms, and the fact that sometimes life just happens, for better or worse.

Although I may have been left with more questions than answers, I turned the last page and felt a sense of gratification. I felt a peace in knowing that these characters that had become a part of my heart had found their own serenity. In the end, they found what we all search for, that one person you inherently know that no matter what life hands you, is simply One with You.

Always mine. Forever yours.

And forever they will be. And with that this reader honestly says… Crossfire.

“CROSSFIRE” One word, two meanings. Gideon uses this word to mean more than love. Eva uses it to say no. I’m using this word for both. Crossfire, my heart is hurting. I can’t breathe. That was my feelings for the last twenty-five percent of the book. I cried through two whole chapters. That says a lot because the chapters are very long. Crossfire, oh how I loved Gideon Cross. This man has changed and developed over this series and it was absolutely perfect.

Sylvia Day wrote this book as if it was a standalone. It felt like I was reading a brand new series. After four years and five books, she transformed and developed these characters how I feel they should have been. You see the growth in Gideon and Eva. You feel the need to have each other and the undying love that they share.

This book did not feel final for me. I feel like it was left open ended and almost on purpose. Could there be another one coming? I’m not sure my heart can take that. If this is truly the end, I think that it fell a little flat for me. I guess after all of this time I expected fireworks and heated passion. What I got was a walk in the park on a sunny day.

I would definitely recommend reading this book to all Crossfire Series Fans. You want to see Gideon now, you really do. You’ll fall even harder for the man that he’s become. Thank you Sylvia Day for bringing Gideon Cross into my life!

  1. I had mixed feelings about the book, I just hated to see Eva and Gideon’s story come to a end! On a happier note, loved your review and still loved the series.
