"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)
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!
Yes, I said it!
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!!!!!!!!!!
Fifty Shades of Grey
I didn't care for her male voices but other than that it was fine... She kept my attention.
The scene where Ava leaves the hotel of SHAME and Gideon comes and finds her in the restaurant....That did it for me.....
LOVE THE BOOK.....
I love the audio version. I have not read the book
All of them!! But Gideon is definetly hot!
There first time in the limousine!
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.
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.
I don't think I've listened to her before.
Complicated lives make for great sex.
I am addicted to Fifty Shades....this....was even better! I am wanting impatiently for the second book to come out!!!
Maybe. I am not sure because I keep comparing it to 50 shades and I liked that better
Not really. I think this is a poor mans 50 shades and we all read 50 shades together
She brings life to her characters. I would listen to her again.
I would say it is in the top 30% of books I have purchased
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.
She brings the character to life.
I would like to have but it's too long to do so.
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!
Can't imagine who would like this or think it was better written than Fifty.
Would not recommend it. Very disappointed!
No, this copy cat book ruined it for me.
Not sure how an Arthor can get away with so many similarities.
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!!!
Of course I would listen again. This was STEAMY!
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!!!
Jill was PERFECT as narrator. (Why haven't I heard her before?) Maybe she should have done 50 shades?
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!
