    I never thought this could happen to me. I never imagined one chance meeting on the eve of my eighteenth birthday could change my life so completely. Now I belong to him. To Julian. To a man who is as ruthless as he is beautiful - a man whose touch makes me burn. A man whose tenderness I find more devastating than his cruelty.

    Don't get me wrong - I won't judge anyone who enjoyed this book. Everyone has their own kinks! But something about the way this was written reminded me wayyy too much of real life kidnappings with sexual abuse.

    First of all - the sex happened instantly, which is a big turn-off for me as an erotic/romance fan. Like whoa...I didn't even get to feel anything for the characters yet! I just didn't care what happened in the end and found myself being extremely turned off - so I had to quit it.

    However, this author's other book 'The Krinar Chronicles' I enjoyed thoroughly. So eh, not sure why this one wasn't my cup of tea.

    After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: a terrifying ability to channel electricity and to see a person's darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude ... until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world's most infamous vampire. Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all - but whatever you do, don't call him Dracula.

    Story

    I will admit that the cover of this novel had me thinking it might be one of those fantasy/romance novels that were super predictable and also unbelievable in the fantasy. I almost almost didn't get it, but had some credits built up so I thought why not! I am very glad I did and I'm about to move onto Book 2.

    It was surprisingly well written. I wouldn't call it a masterpeice, but yes, well written!

    I really enjoyed this one and recommend it to others if you are looking for a romance/fantasy that isn't too over-the-top and not too predictable. I also liked that the author didn't dive into them having a sexual encounter within the first few chapters. Romance novel writers out there who are reading - the drawn out wait and sexual teasing makes it all the better!

    *spoiler alert ahead*

    Also, a great personality trait of Vlad is that he didn't spill his guts and profess his love for Leila instantly...in fact it left at a cliff hanger. Thank you Jeanine for doing this! One thing that never makes me want to continue a series is when an author gives away all the goods in the first book.

    I also enjoyed this series more than the one with Cat & Bones.

    In the near future, the Krinar rule the Earth. An advanced race from another galaxy, they are still a mystery to us - and we are completely at their mercy. Shy and innocent, Mia Stalis is a college student in New York City who has led a very normal life. Like most people, she's never had any interactions with the invaders - until one fateful day in the park changes everything. Having caught Korum's eye, she must now contend with a powerful, dangerously seductive Krinar who wants to possess her and will stop at nothing to make her his own.

    I was skeptical to buy this one because the alien/sci-fi species wasn't really my type of book, but decided to go for because I had some credits built up.

    I was very surprised when I started listening - I got interested very fast and enjoyed the story.

    The narrator could have given more pause between each character, but I got over that eventually.

    The male is definitely domineering and in real life, would be a totally unhealthy relationship. But let's all face the facts, in our romance books, we like a little domineering in our men! I found the book very sexy with the exception of Mia and how childish she was at points. I connected with some things she felt as I am similar to her description of being a petite brunette woman, but her reactions were a bit annoying.

    If you have the credits and don't mind risking 1 - I say go for it and check it out! It's sexy enough to keep you interested for most of it. I think the last hour is when I chimed out and really already knew the outcome.

    Worth a shot...

    Story

    Ack, I really wanted to like this novel. I had heard from others that it was not great, but I decided to give it a go.

    The beginning was actually not bad. But at about 3/4 through the first part of the book, I felt like everything had rushed into this unrealistic relationship.

    There should have been more character development and a slower take on their relationship. Basically more seduction was needed. I am all about some great sex scenes, which is why I purchase these types of books, but this just seemed like it was one date, then bam, they are doing these crazy trips to other cities to have sex.

    I just started part 2 and decided to give up. Sorry EL James, take it slower next time and I will like this sort of novel.

    If you like the premise of this type of book, I suggest "Bared to You" by Sylvia Day. So much better than this and almost the same type of characters.

    New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

    Story

    I absolutely loved the first book Outlander with no complaints. There was just enough drama and interesting action to keep me on edge.

    Dragonfly in Amber I feel got a bit boring mid-book. The beginning was interesting and I was just waiting with anticipation for Claire to get back to see Jamie. I don't have too much interest in the Brianna/Roger relationship, but I like them individually as characters.

    After they lived in France, my interest went down a bit and I actually almost forget large chunks of the book at this point. I felt like she threw in so many new characters that it was hard to keep up with them all as well as feel anything for them.

    At the same time, it started getting interesting towards the last third of the book again and I feel in the end it was worth it. I'm about to start on the third book and I'm hoping for that back to back action and drama packed interest that Outlander had.

    "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."

    Where does Bared to You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is my favorite in the romance/erotica category. It has definitely been the hottest as well so far! It was written very well I feel for it's category.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bared to You?

    The first couple times Gideon and Ava ran into each other and their exchange. I thought it was a perfect lead up to a hot romance. There wasn't too much teasing and not too many chapters before at least you got the hint that the romance was coming. At the same time I didn't feel it jumped into it too quick.


    Which character – as performed by Jill Redfield – was your favorite?

    I think her voice fit Ava pretty well. I also enjoyed Cary (sp?) as a best friend. Of course, Gideon was played very well because by the middle of the book my sexual appetite had surged.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES.


    Any additional comments?

    If you liked this book - I highly suggest "On Dublin Street" as well. It has a similar type of romance. Girl has semi-asshole guy wanting her and she resists, but in the end can't, etc.
