"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...."

“If I were to recommend any book today to readers who enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey… this would be the first one I would offer… Scorching love scenes.” (Dear Author)
"An erotic romance that should not be missed.” (Romance Novel News)
“Hot… page-meltingly hot.” (Darhk Portal)
I really enjoyed this book. I've read a lot of books that have erotic scenes and know that I will love to hear them when I can't re-read the book. Each one that I have enjoyed has an intriguing story and of course the characters have some flaw brought on from their past. The very rich men are always stunningly handsome (and of course hotter than hell!!). The women are beautiful but have such low self esteem for some reason or another and are a bit annoying ... what more do you want the man to do to you....I mean for you?! Did I mention the hot love scenes?! In all fairness, the men don't think they are worthy of the ladies either. The event(s) that triggered Gideon's flaws have not been revealed yet and I'm completely dying to find out. Eva has "bared to us" what's in her past and Gideon still loves her, God bless his soul! If you haven't read Reflected In You you are in for a roller coaster icy/hot ride and an ending that I (personally) didn't see coming. I have recommended this book and many others from Sylvia Day to my friends and they are all hooked and enthusiastic about the next installment as well.
Well, of course 50 Shades...but also Gabriel's Fire, the Billionaire trilogy (the Marriage Bargain, the Marriage Trap, & the Marriage Mistake). Then on the supernatural side there is the Charley Davidson series by Dyandra Jones. You HAVE to get those!! Why...the steamy love scenes, the sexy men, and the lucky women who fall in love with the most perfect being in their life that cherish, protect, and physically and spiritually love them!! Can you be jealous of a fictional character? Did I mention the sex?!? Where do these men learn this stuff and where can I send my man to take the course?
Absolutely...I'm addicted. I have listened to my audios multiple times.
I really wish that there were at least 2 readers - one male, one female. You can be a great reader, but there is nothing like a seductive male voice!!!
I ordered the second book before I finished the first one. Just get it?
Bared to love
I have the print version of this book and yes I did think that the audio version is way better than the print version. This version of the story was brought to life versus just reading it by myself.
I love that this book so much more realistic than 50 shades. Gideon and Eva have more realistic qualities to them than any other character I have read about in a very long time. I love the fact that it had a level of realness to it unlike 50.
I LOVE her as a narrator she brings LIFE to the characters the only thing I did not like was the fact that she did cheesy male voices. That made me giggle but other than that she is a good narrator.
It was a book that I wanted to read in one sitting but I had to work so I couldn't listen to it all at once but this was a real good book!
I thought I loved the 50 Shades Of Grey series until I listened to this. Now I'm feeling like the 50 Shades author was insulting my intelligence. I'm fairly new to the romance/erotica scene...particularly where vampires aren't concerned. So, maybe the 50 Shades books were only preparing me for this series! ;) Well written, well read!
I got this book yesterday and finished it today...I sat and listened to it until it was done...too bad I have to work tomorrow, so I won't get to listen to the second book uninterrupted!
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
Yes. It's steamy and exciting.
Well as much as he drives me crazy at times, I am absolutely fascinated with Gideon. He's a big puzzle.
No I hadn't. She rocked it. Will look for more of her work to listen to.
When they first get together, I had a difficult time breathing. Whew!
Looking forward to the next book! Am downloading ASAP!
This book is good enough that I did listen to it all the way through. It has the literature quality equivalent comparable to the theatrical quality of reality TV; it is fluff, but entertaining/sexy fluff if that is what you are into.
If you have read 50 shades then you already know this story; it is EXTREMELY similar. The differences I can pick out: the leading lady isn't quite as annoying, there is no bondage, and it is a bit more explicit I think.
This is meant to be basically a ripoff of the50 shades books so i had my doubts because the concept was good but they annoyed the hell out of me. Very happily surprised though this story was so much better the main character actually had a spine and was not annoying in the least!
i will definetly recommend this audiobook
the way they had sex for the first time in the limo and how he ignore her after
If anyone tells you this book or the series is a substitue for "50 Shades" they are sadly mistaken. I didn't care for this one. It had it's moments and some great erotic interactions but too often than not I was totally turned off by the vulgar use of the "C" word. Sylvia Day didn't do me any favors with this one and have stopped and stared this one so many times I lost count I felt so much frustration and loathing for Eva I'd have kicked her to the curb faster than any woman I've ever dated. Gideon Cross is a piece of work in and of himself and he deserves Eva and all the raining maddness the two of them give each other.
Not my favorite but not the worst waste of a credit by far. Take it for what it is and don't think you are climbing into a series that comes close to competeing with others out there that are some much more rewarding.
If I cared at all about the characters. The entire plot was just completely unbelievable, which would have been fine if the author had taken her time to really develop the relationship between the two main characters. It felt like the "plot" was just a way to connect the sex scenes (which were good).
She did a great job. She really committed 100%. She did not shy away from any of the explicit material and tried to make the rest of the plot as interesting as she could.
I feel like Sylvia Day is probably a better writer than this book shows her to be. I wonder if her editor made her keep it short or something.
Fifty Shades was a better story, even if Day is a better writer.
"Ava's living the life!"
Only down to half of the book, but I can already say this is something! Love the narrating, love the style and the descriptions... Makes me want to be in New York and find my own Sex God!
"Can't wait for more....."
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.
A fantastic book, I founf the book gripping at the edge of my seat wanting to know the next part. I can't wait for the next one.
If you liked Mr Grey, you will LOVE Mr Crossfire. No bondage etc as such but seriously hot.
"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.
"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.
"Great Read for those who loved 50 shades"
I normally read fantasy but was bought 50 shades and then this was recommended to me. Excellent book the language is real and the story was excellent. Nice to see characters that have issues, makes them seem very real. Can't wait for the next two :p
"Love love love"
50 shades of grey but good! Can't wait to read the second one! Only criticism is that I'm totally jealous
"Wonderfully erotic and definitely worth reading"
If you loved Christian Grey and 50 Shades then this is the book for you. Although having some clear similarities there are enough significant differences to make it enthralling and erotically entertaining.
Don't be put off as this is well written and very well narrated although it does beg the question ..... are all billionaires fvcked up in their pasts and obsessive in their relationships ! ;) you just gotta love em :*) <3
"a great listen"
loved this when I read it ages ago, great to listen to
the narrater was very easy to listen to, can't wait to start book 2
