What would have made Entwined With You better?
This book was an abomination. The first two were great and were moving along nicely with a great storyline and great characters and now the third part of a trilogy suddenly becomes a the third part of a five books series. The story is stretched so thin, it's like wet toilet paper, and just as enticing.
There was no plot development or character development and if I heard him growl "Angel" one more time, I was gonna throw up.
Absolutely dreadful. If I had thought about it sooner and if Audible did not have such a difficult returns policy, I would return it. Suddenly turning a 3 parter into a 5 parter surely breaks the contract between writer and reader, even if it is only a moral contract. Will never buy another book in the series.
How could the performance have been better?
The performance was fine. She did a good job with an awful book
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Entwined With You?
I would have cut at least half of the sex scenes, deleted 4 out of 5 times that they said "I love you" or called each other their pet names and I would have insisted that Sylvia Day actually finish the story as she promised.

Story - Okay, it's my fault. I listened to Bared to You and Reflected in You and didn't learn my lesson about this series. The problem is that I love the story of Ava and Gideon, their tortured pasts and their hot chemistry... but I'm getting really bored with the constant sex. There's a saying that applies here, "Less is more."
The first two books had a great story line but in this one the story stagnates. Except for some good stuff toward the end, it's all over the place with side characters and little filler subplots. Why? This isn't the conclusion to the trilogy we expected, so the author adds stupid fluff to stretch the series. Think about this ... five books for a romance??? I'm torn whether to continue with the series. I want to see everything tied up with a big happy bow, but I fear Gideon and Ava will just F*#& for 15 of the next 20 book-hours and then die stuck together.
Narrator - Love the narrator. She's got a velvety, sexy voice, and she can do a pretty good guy voice too! Her performance lends class to the story.
Overall - If you like lots and lots of steamy sex, you will love this book. Otherwise, you might find it boring.

This is such a hard review for me to write. I was so excited to read the “Steamy Conclusion to a Popular Trilogy” as described by Audible. Imagine my surprise to learn that this trilogy is NOT in fact a trilogy and this is NOT in fact the conclusion. Oh it’s steamy, but there is no real ending. Turns out there are in fact 2 more books planned. I must admit I felt cheated. (especially by the author's end comment)
All that aside, this installment was very much like the last one for me. It ran both HOT and COLD. At times the story was really flowing…we were getting answers and some real advancements in the plot. However, most of the time it just felt like so much fluff and filler. I didn’t really care for most of the subplots with the secondary characters either. And as a side note, I really dislike Bret!
I’m giving this one 3 stars for Jill Redfeld’s brilliant narration and for the hot and steamy sections.
