Review--Captivated by You by Sylvia Day

Captivated by You (Crossfire, #4)Captivated by You by Sylvia Day
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The story of Gideon Cross and Eva Tramell continues in #4 of the Crossfire series, Captivated By You.  In this edition, we find that Eva and Gideon have married, but keeping it a secret from most of the people in their lives.  They both still have a lot of issues going on in their lives and they continue to fight over the same issue.  Gideon desperately wants to protect Eva, no matter what and Eva wants to be able to be her own person as well as being the most important in Gideon's life.   Will they both be able to make the compromises and sacrifices necessary to make their relationship work.

This book was a quick read (2 days).  Sylvia Day always provides an interesting story to keep the reader from putting the book down.  The scenes in this book are enough to get you hot and bothered.  I'm not sure if there are going to be anymore Crossfire books, but I do want to know what is going to happen with Eva and Gideon.  Will they be able to make their relationship work and have the future they both want to have with each other.  Or will they continue to get in their own way and ruin what they want more than anything; each other.

Review--The Shell by Jenni Boyd

The ShellThe Shell by Jenni Boyd
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Nicole Fysh is a conchologist, she studies shells.  When her friends send her pictures of themselves diving, she sees something in the pictures that could make history.  But if this shell is really what she believes it is, she can't possibly be the only one looking for it.  She hops the next flight to join her friends, and find out if this shell is exactly what she thinks.

The Shell is full of twists and turns that will have you on the edge of your seat.  I never knew that shells were such a hot commodity.  This book definitely will have me taking a closer look at the shells I come across on my vacation this summer.

In Nicole's search for the shell, she comes across quite a few people who are also on the hunt.  They will stop at nothing to get their hands on the rare treasure.  From murder, smuggling, and purgery, nearly anything.  Nicole goes on quite a journey herself, suffering along the way.

Jenni Boyd give another enjoyable mystery.  This so far has been my favorite.  There are twists you don't see coming and surprises around every corner.  You don't know who you can trust and if the truth will ever come out.  I recommend this for all looking for a great thriller this summer.

**I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.**
