Similar to 50 shades of grey
I loved the way Jill Redfield brought the story to life.
This story made me laugh and cry.
Similar to 50 Shades
Similar to 50 Shades, glad to hear this is a series and another is comign out.
No because there was just a whole bunch of mind-blowing sex linked by a very thin plot. I continued to the end as I am the curious type, but it got quite tedious.
Although I enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey, this book has cured me of this genre (mummy porn or whatever it is).
Put some romance in it would be a good start. The author doesn't seem to appreciate the difference between sex and romance
The narrator did a good job with the material.
What was the plot? This was just a collection of erotic sex scenes. If your looking for a lot of erotic sex scenes go for it. If you are looking for a story with a plot skip it.
The 3rd book is not scheduled to come out until Spring of 2013; I will be listening to this book again!
The author's writing style is great and the reader acts out the characters with alot of depth and detail.
I couldn't stop listening!
I love this book.
Eva and Gideon are like street urchins – kicked around, damaged by family indifference, defiled by sexual predators, yet still fueled by an urgency to connect, to find solace, to heal themselves and each other. Bared to You is more than a romance – it’s a demonstration of how basic human decency struggles to survive, and how shared compassion can revoke unspeakable childhood injuries.
Much is made about the erotic content of this book; and yes, the urgent and over-the-top sexual relations between Eva and Gideon are exciting to read. This is fiction, and readers are allowed to find pleasure in the reading! But I wonder if that is a shallow appreciation of the true sexual dialogue between Eva and Gideon? Might their sexual obsessions be both the echoed weapons of past injuries, and also the channel that allows them to overcome despair, and find something good and true in each other?
Damage to childhood trust and innocence are the cruel injuries inflicted on them; searching for adult love and trust through sexual experience might be their route to survival. People aren’t always rational when trying to save their own lives. Eva and Gideon have recognized their similar tragedies in an instinctive way; they first suspect, and then understand the repeated horrors each has endured. That is what underlies the raw carnal appeal they initially see in each other. They sense the assault on decency each has suffered, and the damaged humanity they conceal under the trappings of professional success and a wealthy life style.
Bared to You is a book that entertains, but it can also inspire. Eva and Gideon are survivors struggling to make sense of a nightmare, trying to preserve a flicker of hope for love and devotion, and grow it into a flame. Their progress is erratic, clumsy, and sometimes fails. But they renew the effort, and the basic decency they find in each other grows. This is a hopeful book and a terrific read. Sylvia Day has provided a multi-layered entertainment, with just enough mystery to deepen the plot as it moves along. (And the narrator, Jill Redfield, is just perfect.) The sexual content is bold, but not offensive, and really should be taken for more than thrill value. If you consider sexuality as the avenue of character development, then the sex becomes more meaningful to readers.
I am so disappointed in this book! It is SOO a copy of 50 shades...I can't even continue listening.
It is an immitation of 50 shades and a ton of other racey novels, not a bad read ....AT ALL. I enjoyed it. The story line was as expected. You could predict the book's story line after the first chapter.
I've not listed to J. Redfield's other performances before, so I can't judge. I can tell you I wouldn't hesitate to choose her as a reader...she is quite good. I liked the fact she was constant on her tones and I liked her jovialness to her vocals.
I don't think it would make a good movie.
Enjoy-take it as it is. Don't expect a hugh story line it's just enough.
Write her own story and not plagiarize.
Where Trey catches Carey cheating with Tatianna.
Reason why i couldn't enjoy this was because it was the closet one could come to copying someone's else's work without it being deemed as plagiarism. It was way too Fifty Shades of Grey-y. Even the dialog was the same and when it wasn't, it was frickin ridiculous.
Gideon says things like this during sex: "Come, Eva. Now." Like, really?
I kept predicting what a character would say in a conversation and never once was i wrong! And then the authors major error was making Gideon a dominant! I was mostly annoyed by this book be honest. I was more interested in the side characters that i was in the main characters.
