Bared to You: A Crossfire Novel, Book 1 | [Sylvia Day]

Bared to You: A Crossfire Novel, Book 1

"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."

    Story
    "Should be marked as "explicit sexual content""

    I've run across a couple of these books in the last little while. All bought on a whim, basically from the descriptions listed when you run your cursor over the picture.

    The descriptions are fine, but should be marked with "explicit sexual content."

    Truly I don't understand why the sexual act should be described with such graphic, mostly vulgar terminology. Silvia Day could certainly take a page from Nora Roberts books when she writes as J.D. Robb. In her novels the sex is hot and steamy without being described in such vulgar terms.

    The way Silvia writes about sex, you'd think that the only sex she has ever had, has been violent and brutal with no love involved, ever.

    The mind is a funny thing, and can experience the lushness of the sexual act without all the graphic details, just by being led down the proverbial garden path. Most of the time it's hotter to be led than be told in vulgar terms.

    The fact that this is the way that she writes has certainly put me off purchasing any more of her novels, and makes me want to stay with the authors that I know and enjoy. And that is a shame, because new authors deserve a chance to show their stuff just as the tried and true authors can and do.

    Audible, you should clearly mark any of this type of novel, so the listeners can make an informed choice as to whether they want to purchase these books or not.

    Story
    "11 hours of debauchery"

    This book is about two extremely dysfunctional people who use sex as an answer for everything. He's obsessively controlling and she caves to his every command. I thought they were going to attend therapy and start to become healthy, but that didn't happen. I like a juicy sex scene occasionally throughout a well written love story. This is just trash.

    "I would have choosen 0 stars if I could have"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who needs pornographic listening. This book had little plot and character development just a lot of gratuitous, explicit sex... brain garbage. I fast forwarded through 80 percent of this just to see if it ever gave me some character to care about.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A book from a credible author who writes stories that entertain and inspire and do no harm.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jill Redfield’s performances?

    Yes she was a good reader. I pity what she was asked to read.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The effort however misguided


    Any additional comments?

    I wish that audible would rate the books that they offer with an explicit rating to protect it's buyers.

    "Utterly Annoying"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    High schoolers who don't see how annoying and unrealistic the characters are.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sylvia Day again?

    Probably not. It was a rip off of 50 Shades and a poor attempt at that.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jill Redfield?

    Someone who could have carried the male role with more masculinity.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration. These are just insecure, immature and idiotic characters living unrealistic lives.

    "Too Much Sex and not enough story"

    I am partial to murder mysteries and espionage, but I thought I would try this genre. I couldn't get through the first part. It seemed to me that it was just about how exited she was getting and putting him off in spite of this.
    It just was too redundant for me.

    "Hot, if you don't think about it too much."

    This book is the most amazing sexy thing since Fifty Shades! Have fun!

    Stop reading now, you'll like my review better.

    So my mantra as I type this is it's just a sex book, it's just a sex book. It was written clearly to profit on Fifty, and if not, is amazing and coincidentally almost identically to it, right down to the f'ed up relationship that is extremely unhealthy. What's that? You gasp? Well, if you haven't read it, let me ask you this. If a guy took a picture of you and your room while you slept, recreated your room EXACTLY in his apartment then tells you this is your safe place to run to where he'll never follow... what would your response be? If you have read it I'm sure you either already asked that of yourself or are doing so right now.

    In short, this book is easy to read. There's LOTS of sex. Dysfunctional HOT sex. And if you don't think about the fact that each of the main characters are ridiculously jealous and constantly fighting (for the makeup sex of course) and never have an actual relationship because they can't stop sexing enough to have a conversation that doesn't involve angst, then the book can be fun. It's helps that EVERYONE in the WHOLE BOOK is friggin HOT. Even the background characters.

    I applaud Jill Redfield for going all out. The gasps and moans are sometimes shockingly realistic. Lucky sound editors. Winkwink.

    Now that you read this, feel free to return to the first sentence. Spend a credit. Enjoy.

    "It's really not fair....but I liked "Fifty" more"

    Let me start out by saying I LOVED THIS BOOK! And I CAN NOT WAIT for the next one. This is the perfect book for Grey withdraw. However, I kept asking myself why did I enjoy Fifty more then this one? Because Bared to You is the first book....I simply want more! More character development, more answers to my hundreds of questions, more interaction between the 2 main characters then just hot sex (not that I mind it).
    I really believe I will eventually like this book more than Fifty, but until then I'll be agonizing over the wait.

    If you could sum up Bared to You in three words, what would they be?

    I needed this...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Can't pick... but I'm glad that Gideon only reminded me of Gray suferficially, both being rich, handsome and scared


    Any additional comments?

    If you loved FSOG you will like this book as well, but you won't read/listen to it thinking about how much they are alike, these are two different books.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Awesome!!! Loved it!!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, one of the BEST I've listened to. Great, interesting and I did not want to stop listening!!!!


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

    Full of interesting moments, one right after another!!


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

    She is just wonderful. The best narrator I have ever listened to. She makes me feel like I'm right in the moment.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Like I said eariler, Jill Redfield's excellent skills in reading this book made me feel like I was right there in the moment. It was fantastic!!


    Any additional comments?

    I would gladly spend money for this book. I used my credit, but in the future if I do not have a credit when this author/narrator combination comes out I will buy it. I loved it that much. I got book 2 in the series.

    "50 shades at a faster pace"

    After listening to the 50 shades books I was left wanting more like most others, so I stumbled apon this as a recommendation and was not disappointed its fast, sexy and uses real words unlike 50 shades using "he touched my sex". I just wish it was longer and looking forward to the next instalment.

    "Not that bad"

    I have read 50 shades and many many other types of these books and i feel this book is getting a little bit of a bad name because every one is very quick to compare with 50 shades but i read it as it own book and not the best book in the world it is no where near the worst i have read i will read the next one when it comes out and looking forward to it.

    Bared to you leaves you wanting to know what is going to happen next. It just wets the appetite leaving you wanting more and will be listening to the next book as soon as I've written this. You want to no what has made them the way they are and if they will make it through. You also feel for the same the people around them especially his sister.
    As for Jill Redfield's narration she is exceptional her tones and the little things she adds make it easy to listen and get lost in the story.
