I'm giving this one 2.5 stars... While the passion between Gideon and Eva is still quite strong, there was definitely a shift in dynamic here. Some of it was expected (see events of books 2 and 3), but the pacing didn't pack as much punch as the two previous books. I'm glad I read it, as I wanted to see Eva and Gideon's love affair through, but I have mixed feelings on the ending—as in, the trilogy getting stretched to a 5-book series midway through. Loyal fans of the pair might well find themselves satisfied with the outcome, but I struggled with this.
I do believe, however, that the sex scenes have maintained their heat throughout the series.
