  1. I noticed several people are upset with Gideon's comment to Victor about being intimate. I don't read that scene the same as most of you. He told Victor they would be mindful of his personal relationship with Eva. They wouldn't be brazen but they would be intimate. If they aren't brazen he doesn't plan on shocking Victor but they are married and will kiss, hug, and touch each other at times. I don't expect that Gideon would have a red dress moment or a trip to NC moment with Victor as driver.  Eva would scream Crossfire loudly. If Gideon wants to see to Eva's transportation fetish I'm sure he will have Angus or Raul in the drivers seat. I get the sense that Gideon is aware of some bridges he has to mend with Victor. In my mind it is fair that he is being honest with him before he takes the job. I can think of times that I wish my employer gave me additional information about what might be negatives before I said yes. I agree that Victor will protect Eva more than anyone else. Â
  2. I have been writing alternative endings since 4/5. If I had any writing talent I would post them on FanFic but sadly I don't have that gift. I do love that Eva gave Gideon Lucky before the wedding so he can see the dog will help him with his nightmares. If she gave him the dog at the 2nd wedding he would not listen to her changes in the renovations. I want them sleeping in the same bed. Â
  3. I agree with you for the most part. There is too much left for the last 20 % of the book. I don't think Monica had to be killed though. I like the concept of her backstory. The whole thing could be a spin off book and I would be happy to read it.Â
  4. I had this book very early and waited to say anything because....... Like many people I am disappointed for a number of reasons but first.... I loved 75 to 80% of the book....  Love Lucky.  Arash is my new favorite he kicked Arnoldo out of that 1st place position Love the sessions with Dr. Peterson. I think we learn a lot about Gideon and gain some additional insight into Eva in these scenes. I love the lunch session with the Crossroads group. I believe this is an indicator that Eve will work with Gideon. He loves having her in the Crossfire building. Love Gideon attending the luncheon for Eva. Love that man! Angus holds my heart. He does love Gideon and tells him like it is. Love Chris and the dinner with Gideon, Eva, and Chris was perfect. Love the showdown with Lizzie the b**** (we see she is a bad mother), Deanna (great scene especially when Gideon tells her Eva wanted him to offer her a job) and Corrine is out. Victor - love when he's angry and I love that he is moving to NYC. What bothers me and ruined the 5* for me... Cary's story--we never find out if the baby is his, if Trey is going to forgive him or if he can really be faithful. The Landon's storyline is incomplete. That bachelor/bachelorette parties on two different continents. I get that it set up a headline to expose the stalker camera man who was going to be important to the next problem for me. It just didn't work for me.  I'm happy that Anne is getting arrested and exposed but that whole trip didn't work for me. Monica's story--I actually like the backstory. It explains a lot but I hate that she was killed off. It stopped the "second marriage". Eve didn't get to wear her grandmother's wedding dress. Why bring it up at all if she doesn't have the ceremony. The trip to NC was a downer instead of a celebration of Eva & Gideon's new life together and no reception. Then the funeral was lacking any feels for me.  If you are going to put this in why not have substance to the scene. The epilogue wasn't a true epilogue it was a final chapter with an epilogue heading.
  5. This is very true especially service dogs. They are used with solders with PTSD. Also test show that dogs recognize cancer and other diseases in humans before doctors. This was a private VIP room with his close friends, Arnoldo, Arash, Miguel . That was his concern, how did someone get in there to take pictures.   He wasn't having sex he was finger f**king them.
  6. I can see reasons why people won't like the actual book because of some twists. However, regardless SD is an excellent writer. There is no way that people who read the book can justify less than three stars. She gets three on writing alone.
  7. I agree with you Arash has moved ahead of Arnoldo for me too. I received OWY and he stays at the top for me.
  8. This is why I don't pre-order Ebooks. I can't tell you how many times I don't get them on release day and have to wait. I just order at midnight on release day and I have them like every body who pre-ordered. I know the authors like to have the sales to report before release but it just doesn't work for me. I know the electronic ordering is better but I prefer to wait. Hi, yes I was around for the other books. I stop in every once in awhile but it felt like a lot of re-hashing old discussions so I waited until there was something new to discuss. Most people who get the books early get them at events or small stores where books aren't their number one business. I got the last two early at grocery stores. I don't think they sign the same agreements with publishers because their book shipments are so small. Most grocery stores only have one book display and that is shared with magazines, coloring books, etc.Â
  9. Thanks I can't wait to read the ending of this book.
  10. Sylvia might write an epilogue to give us a glimpse into Gideon and Eva's future but I don't think they will have a baby. It is too soon in the relationship. Also, I don't think SD is the type of author that reads what people want and writes the story around comments. She is a good writer who knows how to develop her characters and tells the story she wants to tell. She has often said these two are in a whirlwind relationship and two damaged people need to work through their issues before they bring a baby into their craziness.Â
  11. Hello all, Now that the book is almost here I thought it is a good idea to drop in and see what everyone is thinking. It will take me a while to read the previous posts and get caught up. I noticed several commented that Cary isn't a good friend. I disagree. Cary relocated to NYC to be with and support his friend. Eva is hardly in town and making major changes that affect him and where he'll live. Not telling Eva that Brett is in six nineths is a bad decision but I believe Cary thought of it as a joke. She would get to the show and see Brett and be surprised. he didn't have anyway to know she would go backstage or meet him and kiss him in front of Gideon. Eva had issues with Brett and discussed it with Dr. Travis why would she attempt to kiss him? The cluster f*ck was Cary drinking and getting into something he shouldn't. Cary has a lot more issues than Eva. His mother pimped him out for god's sake. That has to cause serious damage to anyone. The guy cuts to hide his pain. Eva knows all this about Cary and even told Gideon after the cluster that she needed to give him time. As far as Trey goes, yes Cary is unfaithful but that doesn't have anything to do with his friendship with Eva. Eva said he sabotages his relationships because he doesn't believe he is worthy of love. He would not let Anne into their apartment. If it turns out he did that would be a major surprise to me. He picked up some woman at the event to have a roll in the hay and rethought that decision; not for Trey but for his future child. He wants to change his actions.  I don't know his age but he is immature and his actions show it.

  13.  Hi Mrs. X  I feel compelled to respond to your post.  While I'll admit that I was a little disappointed with this book because I expected some more questions answered, we did find out more than you suggested.  We know why Gideon uses brunettes as sex objects. We learn more about Corinne's crazy obsession for Gideon. We know Gideon isn't a loner but has real friends. We know Angus is more familiar with Gideon's past than his family. I don't know how anyone can read the elevator scene and not feel Gideon's pain and inner turmoil. His love and need for Eva and his battle to suppress his thoughts and anger over his abuse mess with his head. My heart ached for him.  There is a lot of Gideon & Eva's day to day life but, even though we are reading these books over a couple years, the actual time frame is several months. We have to see how Gideon and Eva are dealing with their daily life to understand their triggers. (I am disappointed that Eva ran again...not only ran but stayed away so long...for me that is not who I thought Eva was but it is who Sylvia created.)  I liked the swing scene. I felt their love for each other during this scene.Â
  14.  I don't think Gideon is weak. This is the first time we are in Gideon's head. In the first three books we see what Eva and everyone else sees. Gideon is a successful, dominant, alpha male. In this book we see what Gideon sees all the damage that is in his soul. There are some things that he does that seems weak but I think he is trying to figure out what he has to do to have the life he wants with Eva. Facing his past isn't easy for him but it is necessary.  I do have a hard time with Eva in this book. I don't understand her or connect with her like I did in the previous books but I have to believe that Sylvia has a plan.
  15.   I disagree. I think Gideon is playing it like he is being accused of something he didn't do. He would never admit what he did to anyone except Eva and Angus (now we know Clancy knows). When you are as wealthy as Gideon you have a team of lawyers to protect all your interests. Junior lawyers might not be aware of all the legal issues but someone in Arash's position has to know about every case especially if the police are questioning him about murder. Even if they weren't good friends, Arash would have to know any potential legal problems to protect Gideon from competitors and blackmail attempts.
  16.  Ann try audible. They give new members a free book. I get a lot of audio books and I listen while I work.
  17.  I don't think Elizabeth had time to confront Gideon at the event. After she talked to Eva, Anne came up and made her comments then Eva, Gideon and Cary left after Eva and Gideon tried to see if Anne was the redhead.Â
  18.  I think he used the swing before but I'm not sure who with.  Eva's was a very intimate and sensual experience. In the past I think it was more a bondage / toy experience. If he hadn't used it before he would have come right out and said it. Instead his response was vague and unanswered. I asked someone in the BDSM lifestyle about swings and they aren't always used in conjunction with intercourse. Sometimes these books that I read spark very interesting conversations.Â
  19.  I don't think anyone in this group questions whether Sylvia has control over release dates. However, she is a major author and many authors with her clout have release schedules that can go out many months up to a full year. I think that is the frustration that some people feel because she and/or her publisher are so secretive with the information about her books.Â
  20.  I'm not sure why Cary's living arrangement is a problem. He moved from California to New York for Eva and they are trying to start new careers. It would be totally inconsiderate of Eva to leave Cary stranded at this point.  Cary is just starting out in the modeling business and only has one major campaign so he isn't making a lot of money. Gideon is offering him an apartment. He isn't actually living with them. They can both come and go as they please but they can also visit and support each other if necessary. There is no way Cary or even Cary and Eva together, can afford an apartment in the building that Stanton is paying for. Eva said they would have to move out of Manhattan if they didn't have Stanton footing the bill.
  21.  Gigi & Ann  I didn't mean to imply that we wouldn't get an HEA. Sylvia said in a couple interviews that this is the journey to their happily ever after. I just don't know how all the things I want to know are going to be included.  sharon
  22.  I guess I read that statement differently from many of you. I thought Graves was being sarcastic and didn't expect an invite at all. She isn't a friend or business associate with either the bride or the groom. I don't see Graves and Eva becoming friends. Graves would be a constrant reminder of Nathan and Gideon is having enough problems dealing with killing a man.  I don't think the TV series is on hold. It sounds like they are in the planning stages to me.
  23.  Before CBY I wanted the Gid/Eva story to last longer but there is too many months between books. If Sylvia or her publisher would give use two GidEva books a year I can see how she can make this into a longer series. However, at this point, I just want the last book to have all the questions posed throughout the books thus far answered. I'm nervous that isn't going to happen so I have resigned myself to a decent HEA. Â
  24. Every time I log on I mean to say welcome to the new people and hello again to all the old timers who are drifting in but I forget.   HELLO! and WELCOME.
