Series Sunday: Captivated by You

(Crossfire #4)

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is Captivated by You, the fourth book in the Crossfire series by Sylvia Day. The book begins with *surprise, surprise* an argument scene that ends with sex. Break up to make up seems to be Gideon and Eva's theme. Their secret marriage is causing lack of trust rather than bringing the two closer together. To say their relationship is complicated is an understatement.

"You two are whack jobs separately. Together, you're a goddamn nut house." ~ pg. 51

I had to enforce the 50-page rule. Given the benefit of the doubt, I read a few more than fifty pages. The Crossfire series deteriorates with every new installment. Why the author is dragging this series out to a rumored five books total is beyond me. To milk money out of readers? To keep fans reluctantly reading the up-and-down relationship of this wounded insecure couple? I am not asking for a happy ending but for the love of fiction gods, put these characters to rest before they are permanently ruined.
