Publisher's Summary

Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own.
The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp, my greatest fears becoming my reality, my love tested in ways I wasn't sure I was strong enough to bear.
At the brightest time in our lives, the darkness of his past encroached and threatened everything we'd worked so hard for. We faced a terrible choice: the familiar safety of the lives we'd had before each other or the fight for a future that suddenly seemed an impossible and hopeless dream...

Rollercoaster Ride

I am unsure on how to rate this book. I really liked the book but I am emotionally drained from listening to it. I was so invested in the characters and the story line and the hits kept on coming. I am trying to be objective considering the fact that it is the 4th in a 5 book series so I knew there would be no satisfaction at the end.
The books spans over a 3 week period in their relationship so it can't be resolved. If you understand the process of healing from sexual abuse you will get what she was getting at. She needed to develop that side of Gideon POV and that process is emotional and difficult to get through. Having said that, the Brett Kline thing was disappointing and I wish it would have been left out.
If you are invested in this series , you will enjoy this book but please be prepared for the roller coaster ride and understand that is purely character development and no significant advances in the storyline.
So in a direct appeal to Silvia Day. If you are at all reading your reviews. Thank you for showing the male perspective of a sexual abuse survivor and the consequences if you have not dealt with it. But please ........... for book # 5 let them both find their strength and claim their life. Finish their story line where it was worth for us to invest 3 years into this series. Skip the cookie cutter way out and span it over a few years not just weeks. If there ever was an extensive Happy Ending needed it would be in this series. Considering the time investment of the readers. I sincerely hope to see "One with you"published within a few months. Not years!!

The dual narration by Jill Redfield , Jeremy York was good. But Jill Redfield was so good with the delivery of the series I felt the added narrator was unnecessary.

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

I waited YEARS for this??? I want a refund,

Would you try another book from Sylvia Day and/or Jill Redfield and Jeremy York ?

Narrators were fine, and loved the first 2 Crossfire books,,,,then tolerated the 3rd, returning this fourth book

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not Sylvia Day

What about Jill Redfield and Jeremy York ’s performance did you like?

Jill has done a fantastic job with Ava and Gideon characters throughout series. Jeremy did a great job as well, but it was difficult to get used to his narration as Gideon when a listener has accustomed themselves to Jill's version. Jeremy is a fantastic narrator, don't get me wrong - it just changed Gideon in an unexpected way.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Captivated by You?

What a waste, So much intrigue and possibilities wasted. I would edit all but one chapter, condensing sentences from the very little new & interesting info given in this book. Im actually pissed that I waited so long for such a let down of a book to come out. I won't be waiting for the next, not worth it. Too many other author's like Kresley Cole, Karen marie Moning etc with books that actually MOVE a story forward.

Any additional comments?

Im getting a refund. I don't know if this is the authors fault or the editor trying to stretch out a story not meant for more than One book or Two. Think of all the interesting directions this book could've taken! Oh well, moving on.
