  1. Well guys, it feels great be back on the site. Wish I came here with a better response than thinking OWY was a little overrated. 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's relationship and Gideon himself so it wasn't worth it. I didn't take her advice and she was somewhat right. 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.  The whole party thing made no sense. Also Gideon's reaction at the Hamptons was a little over-dramatic and bratty. 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.  Everything from how she died, her backstory, and Eva's reaction were just weird.  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. OWY felt rushed and incomplete. I feel disappointed.  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
  2. Christian seemed to not really care about Ana other than sexually and he always puts himself first. I love how Gideon really loves Eva inside and out and has her on his mind with his decisions. I also hate that Ana was always letting Christian railroad her. She never spoke up for herself.Â
  3. makes sense that would be about Christopher. i always assumed that meant women using him for his looks and money/status.Â
  4. In RIY towards the end of the book  (Ch 17) when Eva confronts Gideons mother at that private club with the big band. Elizabeth says "I'm Christopher's mother, too, and he was there. He swears nothing happened. Who was I supposed to believe with no proof." That means Christopher Jr knows what Gideon says happened and either lied to parents, really didn't know, or was scared to say anything.Â
  5. There's a big chance Christopher was also abused. He was a young boy in the same house.Â
  6. I also want more on Gideons brother Christopher. Even though Gideons theory that he doesn't like Gideon because of all the attention Gideon got as a child, I still feel there is more to that story.Â
  7. I really don't think Chris knew either. Gideon must've heard them fighting about something else. I would like to know what it was though.Â
  8. In the US we have an engagement ring then a wedding band that you receive on your wedding day. Eva is wearing an engagement ring as kind of both right now.Â
  9. Maybe Chris was so wrapped in work that he may have never noticed the sessions stopped. Elizabeth probably didn't tell Chris because she was scared of furthering messing up the "perfect life" she portrayed or maybe she thought it could be swept under the rug. I hope OWY answers some of this. Gideon needs a sit down with his mother.Â
  10. yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!
  11. I always wanted to be inside Gideons mind when he came to the conclusion to kill Nathan.Â
  12. I was just thinking of different things I want to see happen in One With You. 1) Gideon and Eva sleeping in the same bed (safely). 2) Gideon having the conversation with his mother about his past abuse and her admitting her failures. 3) Cary becoming more independent of Eva. Even though Gideon's apartment has an attached apt so they aren't exactly living together, I think GidEva should move in together starting fresh with only each other. 4) Monica telling Eva her real reasons for needing money. 5) Corrine back on a plane to France with no book published. 6) Anne Lucas gets whats coming to her. 7) Tat admitting it isn't Cary's baby. 8) A flash forward to GidEva married and happy with a beautiful baby, maybe a first birthday with everyone there. Â
  13. I THOUGHT THE SAME THING! Plus,the police have to be suspicious of Gideon and Eva getting married only a few weeks he "broke up" with her.The police have to know they're married by now. I would love to be able to go back to the other books and have Sylvia pull a "Grey" and re-read the book from Gideons perspective. I would love to know how he went about planing it and see how he did it. Â
  14. I was hoping they would release it in time for the holidays but now I doubt it.Â
  15. “No, I’m irritated. These only make me appreciate what I have with Eva more. And knowing that they’ll hurt her sure as doesn’t make me feel sentimental about the past. This is our final good-bye, Corinne. ” I held her gaze, making sure she saw my resolve. “If you come back here, I won’t see you.” “I won’t be back. You’ll have to—” Scott beeped through and I picked up the phone. “Yes?” “Miss Tramell is here for you.”  Corrine went to say something and got cut off. What does everyone think she was going to say?
  16. Since CBY was announced in August, I am hoping OWY will also be announced in Aug. Hopefully it will be soon. Everytime I see an UNCLE commercial, I think of Gideon.  Â
  17. Was the CBY release date announced in August of last year or am I thinking of something else?
  18. Does everyone think Corrine will actually release her book?Â
  19. ​ I think Corrine acted weirdly calm. Hopefully nothing is up her sleeve.
  20. "I just called Barnes & Noble and was told there is no record of a 5th book registered in the next year! ! There is another book of hers scheduled for April 2016. Definitely irritated now!" Â ---> someone just posted this on FB. Is it true that authors have to put a record out far in advance of a book?
  21. I don't think it's a bad thing that Grey is having a quick release. I just think it's surprising. I'm actually happy about the quick release.Â
