Publisher's Summary

Please note: This audiobook contains graphic adult content.

"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.

"The bonds of his love transformed me, even as I prayed that the torment of our pasts didn’t tear us apart...."

©2012 Sylvia Day (P)2012 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

    "Hot!"

    Although the main character is undeniably similar to Grey, the story is a bit more smartly written. The story is set in NYC and has a very cosmopolitan feel. Good character development as well. This book is a sexy escape - just what you look for in erotica!

    Story
    "Not a fan"

    Ok so I do enjoy sexy tragic romances but this was a struggle for me. Sex is not the answer for each and every bump in a relationship especially the kind of sex these two were having, rough anywhere at anytime bordering on 50 Shade-ish. And I can't believe I'm writing this but there was way to much sex in this book, I actually found myself fast forwarding though many of the sex scenes rolling my eyes in the process. So if you're all about sex scene after sex scene this book is for you, if not save your credit.

    Story
    "Just a lot of sex"

    Hmmm One of those books that involve a lot of sex scenes, and the story was built around the sex. I like romances and I like sex, but I need MORE. ..more inspiration, characters that grow, and characters that inspire, or a good plot w a great twist. Personally I love Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and Sandra Brown's "Envy"

    Story
    "A lot of sex without a lot of substance"

    This i was more detailed sex scenes without much of a plot. And the worst part of the story was ended before it was any conclusion to one of the main characters dilemmas. Cheap trick to get you to buy the next book. Which I will not be doing.

    "Distracting"

    Story line was pretty weak and predictable. Female character was annoyingly immature and whiny. Couldn't keep a straight face when narrator read male leads part. I actually found myself mocking it.

    "Cheap thrills"

    A little boring at times, and extremely cliche almost all the time. Sexy, none the less. Call a spade a spade, and appreciate it for what it is.

    "Good book but..."

    Love the writer. She's very talented. But the female lead of this book has WAY too many insecurities. At times I wanted to smack some sense into her! The passionate love scenes were the book's best redeeming feature. Very descriptive and it draws you in.

    Story
    "Shades of Grey "wanna-be"....REALLY missed."

    I really didn't like this book. There are NO women like Ava. There are no men like Cross.

    Seriously ladies, how many multi-billionaires men are drop dead gorgeous and single? And the billionaire men are interested in the new-hire working as the assistant for a gay guy in a marketing firm.

    The two main character's first true meeting is unbelievable and stupid. Ladies, if a multi-billionaire asks you to stay after a meeting and then blatantly asks you for sex....I would suggest most women would sue for sexual harassment, not sleep with the guy?

    They solve all of their problems by having sex. Had a fight, let's have sex. You've upset me, let's have sex....You've tried to rape me while I was sleeping because you were molested as a child....Yes let's have sex......RIDICULOUS!

    Do yourself a favor, buy an ice cream cone and eat that instead, you will get more enjoyment out of it.

    Story
    "Umm"

    I read this book years ago and remembered liking it at the time. I don't know if it is my age or life circumstances I did not enjoy this book. The characters had some serious mental health diagnoses that they were facing, and together they brought out each other's neurosis in a bad way. I can appreciate the concept of healing together, but this seemed more like the negative consequences of codependency.

    loved the narrator

    There were moments of levity and the fun of love at first sight that I enjoy.

    "Gratuitous sex with an undeveloped story line."

    book not worth reading. the relationship was never developed between the characters. Suddenly, they were just in love. There were so many holes in the story. I wanted to yell at the characters entire time.

    Story
    "Downright dirty, downright delicious"

    Imagine 50 Shades that is written by someone who can actually write and you have the Crossfire series.

    Ava and Gideon. So, so much better than Ana and Christian and, god forfend, Edward and Bella.

    It's the usual story about a disgustingly wealthy man instantly besotted with a girl, but that's where it ends. Ava is sassy, snarky and sensible and one you can imagine might actually exist. She's confident and Day keeps her true to type. She makes no unfathomable decisions that are not part of her character, unlike Bell-Ana.

    Gideon is a little cliched, but Day's writing is so good that he comes across as strong and believable... well... um... most of him is believable. Certain parts are a little... unlikely.

    Quick synopsis: our two meet when Ava moves to NYC and they are instantly, wildly obsessed with each other. They acknowledge that it's unhealthy but fight to keep each other. Gideon is hiding hideous abuse, Ava is hiding rape and betrayal.

    I think what I like is that it doesn't suddenly become roses, blue birds and violins. They mess up frequently but pick their way through the wreckage of their pasts.

    I have to mention Ava's best friend, the bisexual Cary who is just delicious!

    Jill Redfield is a fabulous narrator - perfect for Ana's character. She's bold and confident, just like Ana.

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

    Loved the series although felt a lot of it was similar to 50 Shades but that didn't stop me enjoying it as more of a story.Looking forward to book 4. :-)


    What other book might you compare Bared to You to, and why?

    Definitely similar to 50 Shades.


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

    Was so easy listening. Would have preferred Gideon's speech to have been a mans voice and not Jill imitating.


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

    Couldn't stop listening. Gutted I have now finished the three books.

    "Better than fifty!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book as well as the sequel.  Having originally chosen it to quench my need for more of the infamous fiddy I never expected it to be quite so similar in it's story or characters (sans BDSM aspect).

    Definitely better written, less repetitive and more accessible but playing to the strengths of fifty shades and quenching the thirst that the brakethrough trilogy awakened. Part of you longs for Gideon Cross whilst another part wants to be him (very Freudian!).  Narration by Jill Redfield was great and also seemed superior to that of the  50 shades trilogy. 



    Highly recommend listening to this book with a bit of James Arthur in the the background for a truly liberating and silky smooth experience. Counting down the days until the third book is released!

    If life is not the same without Christian Grey then this book will help fill that void. A great read/listen with fantastic, dynamic characters. This is a must read!

    "Plagiarism without talent"

    This book is a shameless plagiarism of shades of Grey but without E.L James's talent. It's just a lot of clichés without the sensitivity and humour that we loved in E.L James's books.

    However, Jill Redfield did a great job (except for Gideon's voice who speak like a mafia godfather), I hope she will read a lot of other books.



    If you really want to read good erotics books go listening Olivia Cunning or read Kate Grey, they are very talented artist, you will not be disapointed like with this rip off from Sylvia Day.

    I enjoyed the story but was not overly happy with the narrator. All the characters seem to roll into 1 and a couple of times it sounded like it was recorded in space.

    If you liked 50 shades then this is definitely a book for you. the same idea as the 50 shades but a much better feel and flo.

    I enjoyed the characters in this book and found them far more enjoyable and much more believable. Got me hooked from first page to the very last page. Can't wait to get into the next instalment

    "Left me wanting more"

    This book started off with a feeling of "50 shades". However, ask I kept reading I was left wanting more. This is a must read/ listen too book. The author pulls you in and has you feeling you really know the characters. Gidion and Eva are the worse and best thing that has happened to each of their lives, 2nd book was fantastic. Can't wait for the 3rd.
