Publisher's Summary

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 and listeners worldwide.

I want a do over,it was not worth the long wait.

I listened to this book twice before I wrote this review so that I could give as much positive feed back as possible. I love the Crossfire Series and I love GidEva they are my favorite characters of all time. I have read over 452 books in this genre. I want to say that it was a great story with a great ending but I can't. I feel like this story which was to bring closure to this couple's journey only opened up more unanswered questions for me. The next part of this review will have some spoilers so if you don't want anymore details you should end the reading of this review.
I love that Gideon and Eva's marriage showed so much growth. You can feel their deep love and passion and commitment to each other leap off the page. I enjoyed the breakthrough's that G experienced as he continued with his therapy. I like how the couple continued to go see Dr. Peterson as well. All of Gideon's work helped him mend relationships with Chris (step-Dad). Gideon's work finally lead to the show down I was waiting for with his Mother, I loved that Eva was their to witness Elizabeth's verbal beat down by G. Having waited for that so long, this verbal tongue lashing Elizabeth took from her son makes me wonder what the heck Is wrong with her? She is so self evolved and detached she doesn't make amends with her son Gideon after he admits he was raped. Elizabeth evidently gave up her marriage to Chris because he asked her to go to counseling and she refuses. I guess in my mind, Elizabeth, Chris and G where going to resolve there feelings and heal with an HEA for all but nope, that didn't happen.
Christopher Vidal and Gideon we find out that Christopher hated G because of the "therapist" Hugh telling Christoper, Jr, that Gideon wants you dead and wished you were never born. Christopher is trying to raise capital to buy out Vidal records, we never find out if he did. The story sort of implies the brothers relationship could be repaired because Christopher show up for Gideon's Birthday.
Monica Trammel Mitchell Barker Stanton, what a waste of story line that went no where!
Sylvia Day gave Monica a back story that makes no sense to me at all. I don't understand the purpose considering (Spoiler Alert) Monica ends up dead. I mean I could have totally lived with the idea of Monica being an over protective gold digging debutant. Turns out she wasn't a debutant at all. It was Victor's family who disapproved of her. This was storyline wasted for a character who is now dead. It is really disappointing because this series ends with other characters who still have unresolved issue's.
After Monica was killed I kind of felt bad for Stanton because Eva was with Gideon, Victor and Carey grieving but who took care of Stanton after he lost his wife.
I do like that Victor moved to New York to be closer to Eva. That was one nice part of Monica's untimely death.
Carey Taylor, I would have liked to see his life settled one way or the other. Was Tatyiana really pregnant with his kid? Did Trey ever get back with him? So Carey lost his baby mama (She met someone else) and his boyfriend. Carey did have a little personal growth and he stopped sleeping around so that is good.
Megumi was a victim of bad BDSM play with her boyfriend did she end up with anyone? Nope. She was just a friend who was supportive and could have hooked up with Araash or Renaldo or even Manuel.
Back to the biggest disappointment for me of this book. It was over 14 hours of audible reading so I had great anticipation that Ms.Day took her time for a nice send off, but where I felt cheated was that GidEva got their happy ending but I really would have loved to see their impending parent hood play out in the story. It adds something to a story for me anyway when a couple has a pregnancy scare and let's face it this couple had so much sex it was amazing she didn't end up pregnant. It doesn't even have to be a scare, it could have just been the announcement of impending parenthood to sharing the joy with there friends and family. Assuming the family was healed and reunited. I know Ireland would have been ecstatic to become an auntie. This could have been done in an epilogue or been added onto an additional few chapters. Both of them were squeamish about parent hood so it could have been written comically or knowing how well they navigated their marriage they could have worked together through this too. Also, does Gideon ever overcome his sexual parasomnia. It seemed like after his discussion with his Mother and the dog Lucky turning into a miracle therapy dog who wakes PTSD patients from their dreams I guess we have to assume yes he was cured.
I really have more questions about the couple and their friends that I would assume she might spin off a series but I don't have faith she will do a spin off. I think she was just tired of this couple and did what she thought would be a great story. I just felt there were quite a few holes and and things that make you go Hmmm?
I am sorry Ms. Day not your best ending.
Jill Redfield once again dud a fantastic Job narrating Eva Cross and Jeremy York did a great job with Gideon and I enjoyed his Eva too.

- Kathy "I love contemporary romance novels!"

I wasted a Good Credit for Nothing!!!!

What would have made One with You better?

A major re-write. Ava and Gideon deserves better than what Ms. Day gave them. Nothing and I mean nothing was resolved in this book.


What was most disappointing about Sylvia Day’s story?

The epilogue, What epilogue??? Ms. Day owes it to her fans to do a re-write. It took a 1 1/2 and $9.99 (Thank Goodness for Credits), to wait to see what happens to Ava and Gideon. All 5 books are over a span of 4-5 months and the epilogue is just 1 month later??? Really???


Have you listened to any of Jill Redfield and Jeremy York ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The narrators made this book interesting. I absolutely love Jill Redfield. I would imagine if Ava was real that she would sound just like Jill.


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

All of it. I thought that book 4 was bad but book 5 was past awful. This Ava and Gideon is not the same from books 1-3. I know they are fictional characters but they are probably just as dissapointed at this dreadful telling.


Any additional comments?

This is so disappointing that I will probably not read another of Ms. Day's books again.
