I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
I listened to 50 Shades before this one and they are very similar, but this book did not make me fall in love with the characters in the same way as 50 Shades. I am going to listen to all of this book as well as book 2, but I don't feel the same connection as Shades even though the stories are extremely similar.
Sure. I will listen to Reflections even though I wasn't crazy about this story. There are certain words used in this book that I simply don't like.
She did a great job.
I purchased this book after having Grey withdrawal. This book went above and beyond my expectations. It was just a good as the 50 books. The two main characters were so bad for each other but it just worked. The love scenes were HOT and the storyline kept your attention. This book is a must read & I can't wait for the next two in the series.
Crazy red head who's head over heels about family, friends and life in general!
Yes. The way the characters meet. There was no build up or development of the relationship. It was just a chance meeting and straight into sex. My favorite part of any book is the "foreplay" of the characters into their relationship and that is definately missing in this story. This book also has a very young character who was raped over and ove and it seem a little unrealistic that she would feel so comfortable about sex with a dominate man. I just couldn't buy in to the story, plus I got bored with the sex and nothing in between besides a location change.
I'm going back to my favorite erotic author - Megan Heart.
I did really enjoy the scene when the main character walks in on her roommate in a multi-partner party. It just made me laugh out loud.
Decide not to listen to or read the second book in the series.
The reader of this book was good, but I was disappointed in the stroy overall. I just expected more development. Granted the sex scenes are well written and provocative but theres just no relationship between the characters to back it up.
Excellent start for this series! When it ended I couldnt wait for the next book in the series to find out where they would go. The 2nd book left mw wanting the 3rd. Good Job!
I was time spent to get through the work day. It only helped to drown out the catty chatter of my peers.
Not sure what I will come up with as my next listen.
The performance was good for the type of book it was. Gideon's voice did not give him the strength that was outlined in the book. Ava, was good as far as giving her a voice for her character. All of the other characters where ok.
It was really hard to get through the first few chapters, there was nothing that grabbed my attention. I am on chapter 15 and only listening to it now to finish the book. Not sure book 2 will be worth it.
After listening to Fifty Shades, this book was a "fifty shades knock-off". It was as if the author was reading FS and decided to put her own spin on it. It was a plagiarism gone bad from the book cover to the story line. If you have ever read the Gideon series, when you here his name you want that character to capture you the same, you want the strength and power Gideon held in his books. Ana and Ava must have been twins, they have same characteristics just one was sheltered and the other had a not so good life. There was TOO much similarity in this book to FS. Sorry, the author should have stood on her own and not rode on the book cover of other authors.
I really liked Gideon & Eva's characters from the start...and I enjoyed listening to this story I was hooked from the start! I didn't think it was fifty shades-ish Eva & Ana childhood were different, Christian Grey & Gideon Cross's childhood's wasn't the same ...Christian was a Dom bdsm ..Gideon is damanding But Not in the same way....
I loved the E.L.James Trilogy ...And I Love the Crossfire Trilogy just as Much!!!
I listened to all the Shades of Grey and loved them all. But was so disappointed in Bared to You. It's a very wimpy story wrapped around explicit details of vanilla sex....again and again...and again.... Everyone in the book is beautiful, which is also very annoying. Didn't like it at all and would ask for a refund if that was an option. The narrator did a decent job in spite of the story.
Perfect book, perfect Narrator, and perfect story especially if your looking for something more after reading the 50 Shades of Grey series...I call this the perfect "Withdrawal book"...the story is different, the characters different, but there's action, sex, heat, raw emotions, and great excitement to help get you through...really enjoying the audio books. I hope I reviewed this and gave it the credit it deserves, this being my first experiences at the audio listening world.
excitement, passion and love
gideon, he is mystical
Kept my attention
I can hardly wait for the next audiobook of the series to be available\.
This listen was awesome, grabbed me from the beginning, and entertained me through to the end. I can't wait for the next one!
