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.

    Story
    "At first familiar, but then surprise!! (all good)"
    Where does Bared to You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    it is up there with those I have chosen so far with a rating of 5 stars in my opinion.


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

    I have listened to 50 Shades (the trilogy) and it comes off very close to this story with the multi-millionair factor, being young and inlove, possessive and controlling, sexual indecency by an older predator, emotional roller coaster, the man having siblings of varying interests and troubles and the female being the only child. The female having a father not with the Mom, but supportive..............etc. Although the characters almost share similar persuasions, the storyline veers off to a whole other plot that keeps you locked in to hear all that will develop these characters to a dimension totally dissimilar to 50 Shades. Overall, I was surprised and locked into opening door after door to hear all the juicy surprises and the ultimate sacrifice for love and well-being, but catch this in the follow-up series. You will be locked in as I was and still am for the next in the series to come, hopefully soon!.


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

    total interest and an enjoyment of hearing the different emotions with her take on each character.

    Story
    "Intense Rollercoaster - So Good!"

    If you're looking for a book similar To Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James then BARED TO YOU is THE BOOK! But It's even better then Fifty Shades.

    The story is very well written, fast pace , and HOT HOT HOT!

    How can two dysfunctional individuals make a relationship work? Gideon and Eva's relationship is emotional, intense and complicated. They're obsessed, possessive and jealous of each other. Put all that together and the sex is explosive, their love is sweetly intoxicating, their relationship at times is stormy but when they're happy it's beautiful.

    This book was an intense roller coaster of emotion. I was dying with anticipation waiting for the 2nd book to come out. I love Gideon and Eva's story.

    Story
    "I'm over it"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No because there was just a whole bunch of mind-blowing sex linked by a very thin plot. I continued to the end as I am the curious type, but it got quite tedious.


    Has Bared to You turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Although I enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey, this book has cured me of this genre (mummy porn or whatever it is).


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Put some romance in it would be a good start. The author doesn't seem to appreciate the difference between sex and romance


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator did a good job with the material.

    "No Story"
    Would you try another book from Sylvia Day and/or Jill Redfield?

    What was the plot? This was just a collection of erotic sex scenes. If your looking for a lot of erotic sex scenes go for it. If you are looking for a story with a plot skip it.

    Story
    "Saving their own lives"

    I love this book.

    Eva and Gideon are like street urchins – kicked around, damaged by family indifference, defiled by sexual predators, yet still fueled by an urgency to connect, to find solace, to heal themselves and each other. Bared to You is more than a romance – it’s a demonstration of how basic human decency struggles to survive, and how shared compassion can revoke unspeakable childhood injuries.

    Much is made about the erotic content of this book; and yes, the urgent and over-the-top sexual relations between Eva and Gideon are exciting to read. This is fiction, and readers are allowed to find pleasure in the reading! But I wonder if that is a shallow appreciation of the true sexual dialogue between Eva and Gideon? Might their sexual obsessions be both the echoed weapons of past injuries, and also the channel that allows them to overcome despair, and find something good and true in each other?

    Damage to childhood trust and innocence are the cruel injuries inflicted on them; searching for adult love and trust through sexual experience might be their route to survival. People aren’t always rational when trying to save their own lives. Eva and Gideon have recognized their similar tragedies in an instinctive way; they first suspect, and then understand the repeated horrors each has endured. That is what underlies the raw carnal appeal they initially see in each other. They sense the assault on decency each has suffered, and the damaged humanity they conceal under the trappings of professional success and a wealthy life style.

    Bared to You is a book that entertains, but it can also inspire. Eva and Gideon are survivors struggling to make sense of a nightmare, trying to preserve a flicker of hope for love and devotion, and grow it into a flame. Their progress is erratic, clumsy, and sometimes fails. But they renew the effort, and the basic decency they find in each other grows. This is a hopeful book and a terrific read. Sylvia Day has provided a multi-layered entertainment, with just enough mystery to deepen the plot as it moves along. (And the narrator, Jill Redfield, is just perfect.) The sexual content is bold, but not offensive, and really should be taken for more than thrill value. If you consider sexuality as the avenue of character development, then the sex becomes more meaningful to readers.
