Wow Wow Wow! What an epic night and insane experience. Of course I’m talking about the #CaptivatedByYouSleepover celebrating Sylvia Day’s fourth book in the Crossfire series. What could be better than cuddling up for a whole night of reading in the beautiful Ampersand Hotel, accompanied by a pamper package including chocolates, strawberries, bubbly, candles... the answer - nothing!
Captivated by You is out today- but I had the privilege of receiving it last night… and stayed up all night to read it! (so excuse the interesting English you might be about to encounter...)
So – what’s it like? Firstly, let me promise that there are absolutely no spoilers in what you’re about to read.
Captivated by You is as hot and steamy as any die-hard Sylvia Day fan could wish for. As a reader, you’re quickly drawn into Eva and Gideon’s wealthy world, damaged psyches and rampant naughtiness. We get to watch as both of them push at new boundaries, testing each other’s limits in every way imaginable. This book is all about the characters and their development rather than a huge amount of plot progression – so expect plenty of emotion rather than action.
Captivated By You is definitely part of a much larger jigsaw. The story arc is a part of the five-book picture. If you’re new to the Crossfire books, there is now far too much back story for this to work as a stand-alone novel and you’d be much better starting at Bared to You – book one in the series and working your way through.
If you’ve been looking forward to Captivated by You- grab your copy here , and I really hope you have as much fun reading your copy as I did with mine. And why not try your own #CaptivatedByYouSleepover – grab your PJs, some friends, strawberries, chocolates and bubbly and
*A huge thank you to Penguin Books, Premier and The Ampersand Hotel for the amazing #CaptivatedByYouSleepover experience!*
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 up 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 . . .
