I found this book to be just as good of a story as 50 Shades of Grey but with better sex scenes. Very hot!
Gideon Cross has his issues, which is what makes him so interesting. He is very protective, obsessive, and domineering which makes him even hotter and makes the story that much more interesting. Although his obsession with Eva seems like it would be unhealthy, it is one of the things you will love most about him.
One of the best credits ever spent, and you will want to listen to the second and third books as soon as you can!
I purchased the audiobook and found myself listening about 30 minutes a day. And even though I love the voice of the narrator (Jill Redfield), I struggled to accept the voice of Gideon as her voice imitating a man. In the "steamy scenes" Gideon's voice gave me such a repulsion because it was kinda funny, odd and not at all enticing. I didn't finish this book for that reason.
I wonder why they don't get a man to do the voice of Gideon. I think that he is an important character and although it's not common to have multiple narrators, I've listened to some audible books that have a guest narrator to voice some characters.

Sometimes I like to compare books to food. They are both subject to personal tastes and opinions. The eye of the beholder and all that.
So, there is the group of foods like casu marzu, deep fried maggots and mice wine that I reserve for truly disappointing, badly written or just plain bad books comparisons.
Bared to you by Ms. Day belongs to a second group comparisons, like a fried mars bar, or fruit after meal that ferments too long in your stomach making the whole meal indigestible. Some people find fried mars bar the height of awesomeness. I, however have to pass on it, as well as the next book in this series. Also, the reader was a bit annoying.
It takes a close second!
When Gideon decided to have Ava make her call on their relationship and giving up control
After the gym when he took Ava to his hotel and she saw all which she saw.
No but many hours I sat and listened and do something I rarely do RELAX
I am thank for this being a suggestion from the staff I would have never picked this on my own.
sure it would be wrapped up in one book!
there's another part to this!
when she did the females voice, when she did gidon voice.
i say yes because i used a credit, i was really trying to see what the hype is about mentally/sexually ill people who is ok with staying in that state of mind (gidon) i don't know.
I enjoyed the 1st book so much I had to buy the other 2 books available in the series!
More adult version of Twilight,50 Shades of Grey Series, Release Me, Claim Me - Stark Trilogy.
More of a performance and a different perspective. I enjoyed the way Jill expresses the words in the book!
We all have demons past & present that we never reveal. But what would happen if you fell in love and saw those demons mirrored in each other,so every time you were near one another those private fears & desires became so heavy in the air almost tangible? Could you leave to make it easier or would it be too much to bear without him?
Totally worth a credit or a new one to buy, but be careful you will get hooked! I love listening to these stories and wish I could make it mandatory for my man to listen to them as well! LOL
hot sexy and thrilling
Fifty Shades of Grey. Both books consist of very rich, hot men who will not take no for an answer.
The sex is all there. The story is not. Bared to You lacks depth, plot line, and character development; everyone seemed kind of one dimensional. I did listen to the entire book, kind of waiting for something new to develop other than sex and temper tantrums. No character seemed realistic to me, I felt no emphathy for any of them. On the plus side, I will never look at a tinted window limousine in the quite the same way.
Bared to you ranks among my favorite of all the audiobooks I've listened to so far and I've listened to a VERY large quantity of audiobooks since I began my Audible membership in October 2008.
The scene in the library where Gideon and Eva are interrupted, first by Magdalena and then by Christopher.
"A movement on the far side of the room caught my eye and I froze, my gaze locking with Magdalene’s. She stood just inside the door, halted midstride, staring wide-eyed and open-mouthed at the back of Gideon’s moving head."
Eva almost revels in the feeling of exhibitionism and ownership when she realizes Magdalena is watching and returns her focus to Gideon, then disregarding the other woman. Then they are interrupted AGAIN by Christopher but are situated so that he can't see what is going on underneath Eva's skirts - and there is A LOT going on under there!
"I climaxed. Afraid of the wail of pleasure that wanted out of me, I sank my teeth into Gideon’s hard pectoral. He grunted softly and started coming, his cock jerking as it pumped thick spurts of scorching semen into me.
The rest of the conversation was lost beneath the roar of my blood. Christopher said something, Gideon replied, and then the door shut again. I was lifted to sit on the armrest and Gideon started thrusting between my spread thighs, using my body to rub out the rest of his orgasm, growling in my mouth as we finished off the rawest, most exhibitionistic sexual encounter of my life."
Definitely one of my more favorite moments *sigh*!
This is the first time I have listened to a performance by Jill Redfield. In comparison with other narrator's...she is VERY good. She changes her voice and inflection just enough that there is a difference between characters but not so much that it sounds awkward or ridiculous.
They have already laid their bodies bare to each other, can they survive the baring of their hearts?
I really enjoyed the story and wish I had a Gideon of my very own!
