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.

It’s been a long time coming, but One with You is finally here – and what a wonderful conclusion to the Crossfire series it is!! Eva and Gideon have grown so much, have put so much effort into their relationship, and you can clearly see the culmination of it all in this final novel. I really can’t believe this series is over! It’s one of my top favorite series of all time, and Gideon is one of my top book boyfriends – I’m going to miss everything about the series so much!

I’d built my empire with the past in mind. Now, thanks to her, I would continue to build it for our future.

Eva and Gideon are slowly coming public with their marriage, and the fact that these two are so much more stable and mature than they were when they first met makes everything so much easier. They have a lot of pressure on them from the paparazzi, from their parents, from their jobs, but as long as they have each other, they can handle anything and everything. I absolutely adored how much character growth and development these two have shown throughout the series, how they worked so hard to overcome their struggles together to make their marriage work. Theirs is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of love, a soul-deep connection that people only dream of, and the romance in One with You is just as powerful and intense as it was in Bared to You, if not more.

Happiness came in so many forms. Mine was Gideon.
“Miss me,” he ordered.
I blew him a kiss. “Always.”

Gideon is as perfect and sexy as ever. Eva is as awesome and fiery as ever. I love these two so, so much! There’s a lot going on in terms of the plot of this book, but any time it was just Eva and Gideon, I had hearts in my eyes. They can be so flirty and fun yet raw and passionate – Sylvia Day writes these two characters in such a way that they feel so real and genuine. They never once lose that spark that makes their characters shine.

Marriage suddenly didn’t seem like enough to safeguard what she meant to me. Why wasn’t there something more binding than a mere piece of paper that gave me the right to call her my wife? Vows were a promise, but what I needed was a guarantee that every day of my life would have her in it. I wanted my heart to beat in rhythm with hers and stop when hers did. Inextricably entwined, so I would never live even a moment without her.

I loved the way things ended for Gideon and Eva. Do we get the answers to every single question we have about the rest of the characters? No… but I honestly felt pretty okay with that. Yes, I would’ve loved getting Cary’s full story, or even Eva’s father’s story – but I feel like if everything wrapped up picture perfect, it wouldn’t have felt genuine. The Crossfire series is very much about Gideon and Eva, and I can’t complain about how their story ends. It took skill to write such a satisfying conclusion for such a sweeping, all-encompassing romance as Gideva’s, and of course Sylvia Day didn’t disappoint!

4.5 hearts

  1. I was happy and in love with the book till they she started in on Monica’s story and I feel like the rest of the book was all about her. I was disappointed that there wasn’t a “wedding” or that the epilogue didn’t go further into the future. Left ALOT of unanswered questions!

  2. I felt the book left me wanting more and very puzzled about many of the characters an plot lines , some parts rushed , characters we got to know in other books never really shone through , we waited so long for this I wanted the bigger picture for they happy ending , not left wondering about family relationships, future kids , ?
    No wedding no funeral ? The book of Corrine’s??
    The twin thing ??? Monica’s story where did that surface from ?
    I just expected more , I wanted to feel a big “YES” and smile at the end but I was a bit deflated 😦 I still enjoyed this book as I couldnt get enough of Gideon and Eva’s love story 🙂

    • I’m glad you still enjoyed it even with the open ending! Maybe one day Sylvia Day will write us a novella to give us an insight on everyone’s future!

  3. This was one of my favorite series. I fell in love with Gideon and Eva instantly. Loved every part of their journey. Waited very impatiently for One with you to come out and while the book was great the ending left me feeling unsettled, unfinished not sated. Too much was left open and she left it off in such an odd place. Can we hope for a novella to close everything up alittle better?

  4. By far my most favorite series I’ve read. The love and passion you feel throughout the series keeps u wanting more and good god the description of gidden is just WOW. However i was disappointed that there was no baby for them and no description of a future. I wanted to experience that with them. Overall i think sylvia did a great job and will always keep her books on my shelves.

  5. Thank you so much for bringing Gideon and Eva along with Carey into our lives, I can’t believe we’ve come to the end such an awesome series of books. I’ve gone through all my emotions time an time again, they were such an amazing couple you couldn’t not want them to get together
    Highly recommended can’t wait to meet Kane an Lily
    Thanks you again

  6. Thank you for the post 😃 I’ve read the first three books and they were very intriguing, I wonder how this series will end. 😊
