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."

    "50 Shades compatible"

    Book was very very similar to the 50 Shades triligy but with a better author. Sylvia Day did a much better job of not using the same language & descriptors over and over. I liked Ava in this book more than Anna in 50 Shades . She is not nearly the "innocent" that Anna was which makes her more fun in my opinion. Guidian is all but a carbon copy of Christian from 50 shades so he will certainly hold your attention!

    Story
    "Christian Grey Who?"
    If you could sum up Bared to You in three words, what would they be?

    50 Shades of Grey VS Bared to You.......
    Now don't get me wrong I LUV ME SOME 50 BUT....................50 took an extremely long time to get to the nitty gritty. If I'm not mistaken the real action didn't get started until like the 8th Chapter in 50. NOW in Bared to You it is juicy from beginning to the end. 50 had A LOT of boring scenes in it. And I understand you have to build the audience up but DAMN. Bared to You BRINGS IT ALL THE WAY. Gideon and Christian has A LOT in common. Both being Zillionares, adopted, DOMS, and abused as a child. Now as for Ana and Ava they sort of do as well---like both being women...(LOL). Ava isn't such of a wall flower like Ana is. Ava is experienced and knows her body very well. The overall story is semi close to 50's. Gideon and Ava has a roller coaster relationship and they fall in love very quickly. This books moves fast so I hope you can keep up.....GREAT READ!!!!!!!!!!


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

    Fifty Shades of Grey


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I didn't care for her male voices but other than that it was fine... She kept my attention.


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

    The scene where Ava leaves the hotel of SHAME and Gideon comes and finds her in the restaurant....That did it for me.....


    Any additional comments?

    LOVE THE BOOK.....

    "AWESOME! I want more!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bared to You to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version - I am an avid book listener and do not read books in print - the audio helps kill my commute time.


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

    It was a great story line. Some of the most memorable moments was Ava telling Gideon about her past and how he handled it. And how he's learning how to open up for the first time in his life.


    Have you listened to any of Jill Redfield’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think I've listened to her before.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Complicated lives make for great sex.


    Any additional comments?

    I am addicted to Fifty Shades....this....was even better! I am wanting impatiently for the second book to come out!!!

    "Not 50 shades"
    Would you listen to Bared to You again? Why?

    Maybe. I am not sure because I keep comparing it to 50 shades and I liked that better


    Would you recommend Bared to You to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not really. I think this is a poor mans 50 shades and we all read 50 shades together


    What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

    She brings life to her characters. I would listen to her again.


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

    No really.

    Story
    "Almost exact copy of Fifty Shades of Grey characte"
    Where does Bared to You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say it is in the top 30% of books I have purchased


    What was most disappointing about Sylvia Day’s story?

    It was insulting at how much the characters mimics the Fifty Shades of Grey Characters. Ava (vs Ana) is young and insecure with her first job. Gidian Cross (vs Christian Grey, CG & GC) is a late 20's powerful CEO with a dark past and falls for the main character at first site.


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

    She brings the character to life.


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

    I would like to have but it's too long to do so.


    Any additional comments?

    I like the book overall and will buy the subsequent books but it irritates me just how much of a rip off the characters were to Fifty Shades of Grey!

    "Appalled at the similarities to Fifty Shades."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Can't imagine who would like this or think it was better written than Fifty.
    Would not recommend it. Very disappointed!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sylvia Day again?

    No, this copy cat book ruined it for me.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Poor.


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

    DISAPPOINTMENT !!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Not sure how an Arthor can get away with so many similarities.

    Any additional comments?

    I have not listened to FSOG due to the reviews but saw this book so I thought I would give it a try. I couldn't stop listening as the story developed around these two characters. The sex scenes were vivid and erotic without going too far. This is one time I wish I hadn't found the book so soon after it was released. Now I have to wait for the next. It can't come soon enough!!!

    "This is NOT 50 shades!"
    Would you listen to Bared to You again? Why?

    Of course I would listen again. This was STEAMY!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I actually liked the back story. Boy meets girl,boy falls in love; they share their deepest secrets. And it's actually believable!! There are no contracts or BDSM; but there is ALOT of SEX!!!


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

    Jill was PERFECT as narrator. (Why haven't I heard her before?) Maybe she should have done 50 shades?


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    NC-17


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a YA book! This book is not for prudes! But the story is great, and the sex is better!

    I was rolling my eyes through this entire book! It's an exact knock-off of Fifty Shades and could almost be considered plagiarism! Very disappointed...a waste of time and money!
