Captivated by You: Crossfire Series, Book 4, is built using alternating chapters from the two main characters', Gideon's and Eva's, first-person perspectives. Captivated by You uses a unique and most refreshing literary device for romance genre, and one which proves emotional-ly anchoring for the reader and the couple. Also, unlike many other romance flicks, this book attempts to bring in and deal with some weightier, real-life issues. The narrative in this book is female focused, as every attention is given to what we know about female readership preferences. Our male hero, Gideon, is attentive, rich, good-looking — and (bonus, cherry-on-top) yes ladies he cooks in the kitchen — not just in bed! Eva and most fe-male readership will resonate with his continual doting. Gideon is very needy on the love he both gives to and gets from Eva. This is so much so, that the book's title Captivated By You is understated and might be better renamed, Can't Live an Hour Without You. (Yes, it's a tongue in cheek title — or at least his tongue in her cheek(s) title.) The two main characters are, Gideon, the book's central character, and Eva, the protagonist. Gideon and Eva are two professional 20-somethings and painfully needy. Largely, their needi-ness stems from their abusive sexual pasts. While, both characters come from prior dysfunction, they meet their codependent states mostly with boxers down and skirts up. In this novel, sex is the glue holds all chapters together. There is Monday-night sex, early morning sex, wet shower sex, dry sex, make-up sex, midday sex, weekend sex, after work sex, and sex after sex …. And, yes, this sex starts to wear thin (as likely so do the sheets) about chapter 10 or 11. However, somewhere between psychosis and gratification, the two seem to truly love one another, as even the primal nature of the page garners Gideon's “Angel mine,” and reflective poetry. The softness of Gideon's poetic times provide balance for the violent foreshadowing which may be occurring in Day's narrative. Download your copy today! for a limited time discount of only $2.99!
