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.

    "Worth the read"

    The review title sounds a bit vanilla since this type of book needs to be judged for what it is and not that it is some type of classic read of course. I did enjoy it after reading 50 shades since it was a bit tamer. I think it might have been better if I had read this trilogy first since I think people might do the comparison and "Bared" would come up short in the "wide eyed" department.
    I liked it enough to listen to book 2 of the trilogy but am waiting for later to see if I want to get book 3.

    "Erotica with psychology. Way beyond FSOG"

    I can see the comparisons to FSOG (which i hated, because of the v poor writing and v unlikeable characters plus the BDSM was disturbing but then the scenes unsatisfying) , but i can see if people liked FSOG for the frequent scenes involving a young, dominant, male billionaire, they would like this.


    But this book was written by an adult and the characters, though a bit extreme, have generally adult behavior (if admittedly psycho) and i really liked the author's way of weaving psychology and therapy into the story, which is refreshing, rather than expecting such psycho behavior to be accepted as totally normal!

    "Don't Bother"

    If you have read 50 Shades, don't bother with this one. I honestly can't believe that the publisher has gotten away with printing a book so similar. The author even uses the word "mercurial".

    Maybe this book is getting such high reviews because the audio version of 50 Shades got such poor ones. Based on those reviews, I did not purchase the audio version of 50 Shades, but went with the real book. I can see how the narrator's performance could make this seem like the better book, but I don't think it is.

    There is nothing wrong with the narrator's performance, though. She did a fine job.

    "Three words..... Can't get enough!"

    This book is the best read. I haven't even read the FSOG that everyone is comparing this book to. I was totally consumed and I couldn't get enough it. I was sad for the story to end. I just now bought the second book and I can't wait to read it.

    I will say.... this book is very erotic and exciting. The narrator doesn't do very good job with male voices, but I become accustomed to it.

    Overall.... GREAT BOOK!

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

    I believe Sylvia Day wanted to 'cash in' on 50 Shades of Grey... but LOST. This book is bad. I read the complete series of "50 Shades", AND it was written in a much classier fashion without the "hard core porn" of this one!!

    I am very disappointed.

    NO ONE UNLESS YOU ARE A COMPLETE PORN LOVER!!!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sylvia Day again?

    NOT AT THIS TIME


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    ???


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

    ANGER AND DISAPPOINTMENT ON THE CRASS - PORNOGRAPHIC SCENES (EVEN WHEN LISTENING, YOU CAN STILL VISUALIZE)

    STORYLINE ALMOST IDENTICAL TO "50 SHADES OF GREY" REALLY?

    FIND ANOTHER OUTLET MS. DAY!


    Any additional comments?

    NEED TO KNOW THE PROCEDURE FOR RETURNING DOWNLOADS!!!

    Story
    "This book is a 50 Shades of Grey wanna be"
    What would have made Bared to You better?

    There was nothing in this book that made me like the characters. It just jumped into the desriptions of the characters sexual acts. There were too many ideas stolen from 50 Shades of Grey and they were not done nearly as well.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator didn't really detract from the book. I guess she did the best she could with the very limited story line.

    "you loved FSOG? Bared to you is soooo much better"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have! I have a paperback copy that is made it's rounds to about 10 people so far and they all agree it has the emotions that were missing in FSOG


    What did you like best about this story?

    Eva, learning about her, in this the first book you learn about Eva and her history. The relationships she has with Cary and Giddeon.
    You learn about her friends, her coulleges, her family, her job. Sylvia does an excellent job at developing a character, their life, a world. She has an excellent vocab to do the same


    Any additional comments?

    I had serious FSOG withdrawal when I found a recommendation online to pick it up! I've now read it three times and am seriously inlove! I am a convert, FSOG what?
