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
    "Copy of 50 Shades."

    I had read the listener reviews before getting this audiobook, thinking it couldn't be that much like 50 Shades. How wrong I was. I can't believe it even got published. That being said, it is still a somewhat enjoyable listen. I liked the change in characters, they are both much more likable than in 50 Shades. I wasn't too crazy about how much the story focused on child sexual abuse. I know the point is that they have issues, but it jumps right into them with both feet and is a little too much for me.

    The performance wasn't that great either (and I'm not usually too critical about that aspect). The narrator often says the lines in a really awkward way, with inappropriate pauses. I also disliked her version of the guy's voice.

    Would I buy this book or use a credit on it if I had it to do over again? Probably not, unless there was absolutely nothing else on my "to read" list. I definitely won't be getting the second book when/if it makes it to audiobook.

    "better than 50"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bared to You to be better than the print version?

    the story line is better, the characters are little more mature and not so childlike


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

    50 shades, similar storyline

    Story
    "A little borring"

    I did not enjoy this book as much as fifty shades, but I do understand why everybody is comparing the two. The storylinie in this one is a little borring and sometimes I forgot to listen. Of course it is a matter of taste, but I did not like the main female character overly much. The performance of the narrator is actualy pretty good and she makes the book better. Just like fifty shades, there is a lot of sex scenes in the book, and I think that if you count the minutes you spend listening to this part of the story, it would probably be more than half. Not sure if I will read or listen to the second book in this series.

    "REALLY BAD RIP-OFF"
    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a bad rip off of the Fifty Shades books, look no further. The book follows Fifty Shades almost to the letter. Really, really bad. Don't waste your money!!!!

    Story
    "Silly housewife porn"

    Silly is the first thing that comes to mind. And the last. In between some lapses of common sense and a plot that suffers from too much predicability. But, if you have nothing better to do while you are folding that laundry, enjoy.

    Story
    "swiss cheese plot"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    ok, so I understand that Sylvia Day is starting a series -- but there were so many red flags about their entire relationship & way too many holes in the plot.

    what is there to hold these two people together that readers should invest more time getting to know them?


    What could Sylvia Day have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    she introduced characters near the end of the novel that have no bearing on the story - was that a setup for book 2? if so, there were no teasers about the relationship that was of any interest to me beyond this book.

    the end of the book takes place as they are getting into a taxi - WHY????


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

    Redfield is a great narrator

    "More like, 'Bored to you.'"
    Any additional comments?

    Maybe I listened to this too soon after listening to Fifty Shades of Grey. I felt like it was exactly the same, except that I didn't care about either of the characters in this story. They were immature and annoying. If you're downloading this just because it was recommended after Fifty Shades of Grey and you're craving more steaminess, look for something else.

    "SENSATIONAL!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Bared to You the most enjoyable?

    Hope there is a sequel. Love this book - so intense. Would love for Gideon to take care of Ava's step brother or at least find out if he ever tracked him down, oh and let's not forget about Michael - his day is coming too. Please please let there be a sequel.


    What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

    Great - I would really like to know how she made it through this book. I had to exhale quite a few times!! Nice job.
