Well guys, it feels greatÂ be back on the site. Wish I came here with a better response than thinking OWY was a little overrated.Â
I wasn't able to read it the night it came out because I was at work so I managed to avoid FB, twitter, this site, everything. I do have a close friend who loves Crossfire like I do who was able to read it on 4/5. She actually told me to not read it. I couldn't believe it. She said it would change some of my perception of GidEva'sÂ relationship and Gideon himself so it wasn't worth it. I didn't take her advice and she was somewhat right.Â
Some things were great : Lucky, Clancy, Gideon saying "I love you" more, the possibility of Christopher Jr and Gideons relationship, I LOVED Chris Sr.
Everything else I couldn't believe.
First of all, what the was with Gideon and that Cinco de Mayo photo?? I know Sylvia must've been trying to make some point about trust but it could've been done that actually fit into Gideon's persona. Â The whole party thing made no sense. Also Gideon's reaction at the Hamptons was a little over-dramatic and bratty.Â
I didn't like when Gideon admitted to trying to sleep with other people after he saw Eva.
Deanna needs to GO, not a job. I mean, come on.
Ireland's boyfriend cheats? That's what that was all about?
Then we have the Elizabeth story. Such a build up for a few pages of an argument and then nothing.
The Monica story-line was rushed and not making much sense. Â Everything from how she died, her backstory, and Eva's reaction were just weird. Â I am a RN on a critical floor. I see denial and disbelief EVERYDAY but how she just picked up and moved on after 3 weeks was ridiculous.Â
OWY felt rushedÂ and incomplete. I feel disappointed.Â
I still love Sylvia Day. She is an amazing author who loves her fans and I still love GidEva. I'm just going to pretend that Eva gave Lucky to Gideon at their second wedding as a gift and everyone was there (including Monica) and that they went on a magical honeymoon and lived happy ever after.Â
