Whatever Story Was In This Book Is Over I Guess: Captivated By You Chapter 20

June 2, 2015 by


Good news! It’s the last chapter of Captivated By You! Are you surprised, because it doesn’t seem like the story has been leading up to any kind of ending at all? Us too. Chapter 20: Eva We pick up at Eva’s mom and stepdad’s place, where Eva (and Cary, for whatever reason) are staying while […]

This Time I Think We’re Supposed to Believe the Argument Has Real Consequences: Captivated by You Chapter 19

June 1, 2015 by


Last week, a sex swing! This week, more arguing. THE STAKES HAVE NEVER BEEN HIGHER! Captivated by You Chapter 19: Gideon Gideon decides that breakfast is the best time to tell Eva that he offered Mark (Eva’s boss) a job in an obvious and shameless bid to get Eva to come work for him as […]

Suddenly, A Sex Swing: Captivated By You Chapter 18

May 26, 2015 by


But first there’s a lot of boring shit that does not involve sex swings. Sorry. All sex swings in good time. Chapter 18 First thing in this chapter that is not a sex swing: Eva and her mom meet with the wedding planner. Eva and her mom continue to disagree about everything. It’s almost amusing […]

Arnoldo is Apparently a Food Network Star, Because Why Not?: Captivated by You Chapter 17

May 25, 2015 by


Gideon’s mother calls to cancel their highly anticipated lunch. Everyone, go home, show’s over. I know your hopes were all sky high, desperately awaiting being treated to the same passive aggressive (or outright aggressive) interactions between Eva and Gideon’s mom, and her continual pleas for Gideon to call more often. Eva joins Gideon in the […]

In Which Everyone Continues To Have Unresolved Problems: Captivated By You Chapter 16

May 12, 2015 by


Chapter 16: Eva This chapter opens up with Eva and Gideon in couple’s therapy, which is great because 1) at least this book is trying to show that these two have serious issues and that therapy is a useful thing that really helps people, and 2) it really puts all the ridiculous shit in this […]

Eva’s Spicy Hot Hot Hot Latin Temper: Captivated by You Chapter 15

May 11, 2015 by


Captivated by You Chapter 15 Today we’re introduced to Gideon’s co-conspirator in the stalkerish crime of recreating his pent-house bedroom to be an exact replica of Eva’s bedroom. His name is appropriately ridiculous. Blaire Ash smiled as his pen flew across the large notepad clipped to a board. His gaze lifted to roam the entirety […]

More Terrifying Sex: Captivated By You Chapter 14

May 5, 2015 by


Last week one of my friends from high school (who’s written cool stuff for Vice and Daily Beast) won a contest to go to a podcast upfront called #hearitupfront sponsored by NPR, WNYC, and WBEZ. Longtime BBGT readers may remember I used to intern at NPR, so this was already pretty cool, but it got […]

Can’t We Have a Less Confusing Villain in This Series?: Captivated by You Chapter 13

May 4, 2015 by


Captivated by You Chapter 13 The chapter opens with Gideon discussing what I’m sure is very serious business with his project engineer, but of course this somehow becomes an opportune time to think about Eva’s amazing blow jobs. “By the way, congratulations on your engagement.” My gaze shifted from the project engineer’s face on my […]

Actually, It’s About Brett Just Wanting To Be Friends: Captivated By You Chapter 12

April 21, 2015 by


Chapter 12: Eva The chapter kicks off with these words, so at the very least it’s cutting to the chase: I dared anyone to come up with a more awe-inspiring sight than Gideon Cross taking a shower. Do recall that a mere six chapters ago, it was merely waking up to a naked Gideon Cross […]

For the Love of God, Go Away, Brett: Captivated by You Chapter 11

April 20, 2015 by


I know that four books in I shouldn’t be amazed by this anymore, but how Sylvia Day can write 60+ page chapters wherein almost nothing happens is incredible to me. I suppose E.L. James and Veronica Roth share this rare and horrifying talent, but my awe stands. Captivated by You Chapter 11: Gideon Brett Kline, […]
