    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    Would you listen to Bared to You again? Why?

    Of course I would listen again. This was STEAMY!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I actually liked the back story. Boy meets girl,boy falls in love; they share their deepest secrets. And it's actually believable!! There are no contracts or BDSM; but there is ALOT of SEX!!!


    What does Jill Redfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jill was PERFECT as narrator. (Why haven't I heard her before?) Maybe she should have done 50 shades?


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    NC-17


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a YA book! This book is not for prudes! But the story is great, and the sex is better!

    They kill without mercy. Disappear without trace. They are The Two. And now the stakes are raised once more for Detective January David. 5 lie dead, brutally murdered - the first taken on the night of Halloween and as autumn bleeds into winter more ritualistic murders are discovered. January must battle his demons, for in his mind lies the clue to stopping a ruthless murderer. But his worst nightmares have literally come true when he discovers there's not one, but two twisted killers on the loose.

    Hip-hop artist Tip "T.I." Harris has received every acclaim the music world has to offer. Now, working with bestselling celebrity collaborator David Ritz, T.I. applies all his talent and experience to the world of fiction by creating the epic love story of Power and Beauty. After the death of his mother, Charlotte, Paul “Power” Clay allows himself to be guided by Slim, a local businessman. Slim always has the best of everything, and Power is sure that if he learns Slim's ways, he'll make something of himself - and perhaps be worthy of Tanya “Beauty” Long.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this was a good book.. It was really interesting and the characters were really well developed.Two people who come from the same place can go in such different directions!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Wanda, she knew everything and everybody. (she thought)


    What about Prentice Onayemi’s performance did you like?

    He was so great! When I first heard Slim's voice I would have sworn that Ving Rhames was narrating!


    If you could take any character from Power & Beauty out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Wanda, I would love to sit and listen to her talk about everything!


    Any additional comments?

    I choose this book because of TI and it was only $5 but I was delightfully surprised.But the ending left me hanging and wanting more. I want to know how Power and Beauty's story ends.

    What made the experience of listening to Fifty Shades Darker the most enjoyable?

    The narration "redo" of Fifty Shades was necessary. And has made the listen even better!


    What other book might you compare Fifty Shades Darker to and why?

    I love the Romance. I have listened to erotica stories but not with this much romance.


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    I think that Becca was able to relate to the characters, and it came through in her performance.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some of of the romance was tear jerking
