2.5 Stars!!
WTF!

So here I begin my rant. I am pissed after reading this book because it merely came upto 10% of what I was expecting it to be.. So this is me going on about it in biker language.

Ok, So let me begin with a little good first, The sex was HOT, Like seriously good and HOT! But it was SO fucking clingy and I dont even have the right words to say how effing clingy it was It was so like I need to fuck you because I am an insecure person, for both of them. It was them fucking, not making love.. There was steam and sizzle, but not a single ounce of the chemistry that they had in the first book.

WHAT THE FUCK was with chapter 1-13.. I could have fit that shit into 2chapters. Seriously? I didn't know one could drag shit like that for 13 bloody chapters.. It pissed the living hell out of me, 13 chapters of the same repeated crap. SAME. BLOODY. CRAP.

The last 4-5chapters were nice, thats what I was expecting from the whole book, So the 2.5 Stars the book has gotten from me, its ONLY FOR THE LAST FEW CHAPTERS. There was still absolutely NO details what so ever about Gideon and his abuse. It was like 2pages. 2bloody pages!!! *pissed*

Seriously Eva, Grow a spine and Gideon, you stupid idiotic fool! I love you but damn boy did you piss the shit out of me in this book..

I feel pretty pissed as I'm reading the book.. 35% into the book and the same drama is on about how Gideon isn't telling Eva anything and how's she's getting pissed and asking him questions and he is still not telling her anything and how he is using sex to get around the questions she is asking him and how they are insecure and want to be close to each other even though he is very secretive and she is always pissed...

75% into the book and its the SAME crap! SAME. Do you know how frustrating it is? Waiting for a book for months hoping to get a load of stuff out of it and what do we get? Nothing.

After 75% did the book pick up, gave us a little tiny bit of information.
The book barely stirred any emotions inside be appart from angry.
I know I expected a lot from this book, but hell.. it didn't even live up to 10% of Bared to You.

I could have fitted this whole book into like 5chapters of Entwined with You. Hate it how authors now a days want to drag shit out. I mean.. YES we love detailed stuff, and we do like out books moderately long but this is like pushing it a little too far by unnecessarily dragging stuff out.

Clingy non chemistry sex(fucking) not love making is so not a turn on for me. So this book was a total BOO for me.

I just hope Entwined with You is as good as Bared to You and nothing like this book.
Look down and see how bad I've waited for this book. I am utterly disappointed. :(

Lucinda - I JUST LOVE TO READ What??? You are NOT serious!!! I was looking foward to the 2nd even been counting the days :(

JoJo - JJJ (Jo Anna) Janesko Well that just stinks but on the other hand it gives me more time to do a re read. I forgot a lot of the story.


Akanksha❤ Søren♰ Thats good. I keep reading a few specific books again and again, so BTY is one of them, The story is fresh. :( Looks like we will be waiting longer. Sucks.


ChickLitWorthReading Sylvia Day debunked the 23rd theory on her FB page. She confirmed the ebook is still coming out on the 2nd. And the paperback on the 23rd.

Jane It's here finally dropped into my kindle this morning quick read before work I could be late today


JoJo - JJJ (Jo Anna) Janesko Did you start it yet Akanksha?


Akanksha❤ Søren♰ Yupp :D Just started, On chap1


JoJo - JJJ (Jo Anna) Janesko How is it so far?


Akanksha❤ Søren♰ Nicee! loving it :D When are you starting it?


JoJo - JJJ (Jo Anna) Janesko I am actually going to re read Bared to YOu first. I am reading it as a buddy read. I forgot a lot of the story so I want to make sure it is fresh before I read the second book. I also am in the middle of an excellent book that I don't want to put down. So maybe I will get to this one this weekend or next week sometime.

Akanksha❤ Søren♰ Tied Up, Tied Down (Rough Riders #4) looks very interesting, Do I need to read all the books in the series to understand.. is it connected? or can i read only this?

Ya, Both the books your reading currently seem damn interesting.. I'll read em both soon :D


JoJo - JJJ (Jo Anna) Janesko The book I am reading now Tall, Dark & Lonely is excellent a must read. It is a paranormal about a vampire. I have stopped and started Tied Up, Tied Down so many times it isn't funny. i would suggest you start with the first in the series. The story continues which each book and all of the characters are in each of the books.


♥Rachel♥ How are you liking this Akanksha? How far are you into it? You read Bared to you 6 times?! Wow, lol! :)

Haha, Yes.. Beautiful Disasters, Bared to You, Love Unscripted, Fsog, boycotts and barflies and seductions and snacks and playing for keeps.. I've read them soooo many times this year.. I keep re-reading my favs

Hmm.. Till now Reflected is going the same.. he isnt telling her anything and she's getting pissed and they are having sex.. haha
hmm.. 30%

Ah! I'll read Tall, Dark and Lonely soon! Though I'm so over Paranormal except Vampire Academy and Mortal Instruments


JoJo - JJJ (Jo Anna) Janesko OMG love Vampire Academy. This book is really good though. It is by the same author that wrote Playing for Keeps.


Akanksha❤ Søren♰ Who's finished reading this book and actually liked it? o.O


Izabella Uve read this? i m waiting for the paperback


Camaro ~ Wendy's Little Bird ~ I liked your review because I had the EXACT same reactions you did. Nothing much happened up to the last quarter of the book. It was on and on and on with the same bloody drama... and honestly my head started to spin. Yes there was a lot of sex, and yes it was really graphic. Some of it was sooo damn graphic it did get a reaction from me (it was almost like watching porn, I lost count of how many times the word "semen" was mentioned) but it's as though no other aspect of their relationship was explored, other than the sex and the endless insecurities.

There was no chemistry outside the bedroom, and I realize that that is probably the whole point the author was trying to make but it didn't make for a very enjoyable read. It was just... suffocating at times. (and don't get me started on that ending, cause I still don't completely believe that Cross will stoop that low... yikes).

Haha, I loved that he stooped so low for her :P
Tell me about suffocating.. the book was just blah


Lucinda - I JUST LOVE TO READ Wow I have to say I am surprised that you only gave it a 3.5 stars. I know how you were looking forward to it! I am 30% so far.


Akanksha❤ Søren♰ Lucinda wrote: "Wow I have to say I am surprised that you only gave it a 3.5 stars. I know how you were looking forward to it! I am 30% so far."

I know right, I gave it 3.5 mainly to please myself because I was waiting so long for it and just for my expectations which I had, it barely deserves a 2.5-3

haha, its the same crap uptil 75%


Lucinda - I JUST LOVE TO READ That is what happend to me with Love Unrehearsed I think I was looking so forward to it. It was good but I kind of expected more.

I don't care how good the sex are... if he was that posessive over me and I would've run for the hills haha! But still love Gideon in my own stupid way haha!


Allison ❤️Will Never Conquer Her TBR❤️ I'm a bit worried too that I've had my fill of the dysfunctional back and forth, never getting along BS of their relationship..... And I'm an angst junkie.. Maybe that's not really angst, just annoying after a while (lack of trust, possessiveness, insecurities). I'm 22% in so there's hope still hope I'll love it, right everyone?


Erica I'm at Chapter 12 and I agree 100%! I don't understand how people are gushing over this, it's ridiculous. Completely different than Bared to You. ;[

Aman I absolutely agree with you. This book was utter disaster, and I'm so angry with it. I loved Bared to You, and this was a very bad sequel to it. Period.

Totally!!


♠ Becka & Cerys ♠ | Spitfire Reviews I 100% agree with this review, I gave it 4* but as you can tell in the review I wrote, I love Gideon but WTF was he thinking, and most of the book was Eva getting her heart shattered, I know shes meant to be his "submissive" (which shes pretty crap at) but she acted spineless and whined constantly, they based the relationship on sex in this book, not the original chemistry, all this within 2months of meeting each other?! CUT AND RUN. This was a total clusterfuck, I hope Entwined with You goes back to the original set up, angsty romance is hot, this - although sizzling hot sex did occur many times- was a mess.

I am expecting a lot from Entwined with You.. Hope it lives up..


♥Rachel♥ Akanksha, I was in a foul mood after this too. Finished last night and brewed about it all day. I finally am able to move on a little because I purged my system by writing my review! RANT IS OVER! Great ranty review too, my dear! Lol. :)
