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
    "So much better than Shades of Grey!"
    If you could sum up Bared to You in three words, what would they be?

    steamy


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

    This book is similar to Shades of Grey in that the male character is a control freak, but in a more normal way. He doesn't have some S&M fetish or anything like that. He's just a type A personality. Both characters do had a past that causes conflict and they have to work on communicating with one another.


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

    I thought all of the characters were well written and performed well. You could really hear the difference in personality when spoken by performer. You felt like you were watching a play.


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

    I didn't want to put this book down! The seans were so vivid and raw.

    Story
    "Good but no 50 Shades"
    Any additional comments?

    It was a good read, but the story of a rich guy that falls for the girl next door has been told. I think this is actually better read before 50 Shades - it was positioned as the book to read after 50 Shades. I probably would have rated higher if I read this book first. The plot twists are a little under developed and the story is somewhat predictable.

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

    Hot
    Dark
    Erotic


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

    Eva and Gideon's First passionate encounter in the limo. That is when the story line started to heat up and get really good.


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

    I love her narrating. You can tell she really got into the story and how she uses her voice to differentiate between the characters.


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

    When Eva and Gideon admit they love one another. When they open up to one another in ways that neither one of them think is possible.


    Any additional comments?

    I have not read Fifty shades so I can not compare this book to that series. I have heard the story line and characters are almost the same so if that is the case then some people might be turned off by this book. However, I think this book is a very passionate and erotic book. But, it also has a great story line and really shows what can happen when two people start to open up there hearts to one another in ways neither one of them thought was possible. I think the narration is also great. Jill does an amazing job. Even if the story is similar to fifty shades it is worth it to at least listen to this book just for her brilliant narration.

    "Fifty Shades it's not"
    Where does Bared to You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    High up there.


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

    Fifty Shades of Grey. It is very similar with out all the kinky f--kery.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Ava and Gideon have sex in his limo for the first time.


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

    No. I like to enjoy books over many sittings.


    Any additional comments?

    Not as good as Fifty Shades of Grey. I really loved those books and perhaps I am being unfair in my comparison. I felt that Bared to You was Fifty Shades but with out all the charm. It is still a very good book. Maybe I should have listened to a totally different type of book between the two.

    Story
    "Very sexy,..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it is written very well and has you pulling for this couple. The emotions and feelings one feels when reading this book is wonderful.


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

    My favorite moment is how well written the intimate moment between Eva and Gideon--when they are struggling with their own inner torment, trying to explain to each other how much they mean to each other--at the Garden Party at Gideon's family's home. The chance that they might get caught is such a turn-on.


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

    There's more to Gideon than the story allows. By reading this story, you know that Gideon had some sort of troubled past. The foreshadowing is there, but leaves you wanting more answers by the end.

    I do believe the voice/actress made it a little difficult to separate the characters' voices. Sometimes, I wasn't sure if it was Eva or Cary talking, etc.


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

    There were a few moments that really moved me. One that stands out is when Gideon finally tells Eva he loves her, but it's more than that. The way it is explained is touching and heartfelt. It's so lovely that Eva felt that too.


    Any additional comments?

    More,....it would be great if the author made a second book from Gideon's perspective, delving into his past and how the two of them can get past it, together. It's such a great story, but I want more!!!

    Story
    "Distracting"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I had heard great things about this book so I purchased it on audible bc I had a token.
    I liked the story line but found the narrator to be distracting. Some female
    Narrators can switch to a male voice without losing the story. This narrators voice seemed
    Comical. I think I would have enjoyed the story more with a different narrator or just
    Reading the book.


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

    I guess 50 shades of Gray. In some ways, this story was much better.


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

    Susan Erickson she can switch characters so fluidly you
    Don't realize you are listening to a book.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No
