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
    "Hot!"

    Although the main character is undeniably similar to Grey, the story is a bit more smartly written. The story is set in NYC and has a very cosmopolitan feel. Good character development as well. This book is a sexy escape - just what you look for in erotica!

    "Enjoyed the story! Narration, not so much."

    Enjoyed the story! Narration, not so much. It took several starts and stops for me to get to used to her voice. I will probably read the the rest of the series.

    "fun and sexy but predictible"

    of course we all listen to this for the sexy parts, not the story...but overall this is an okay read. And not quite as dark as the grey books.

    "Best Series!"

    This series is hands down my favorite of all time! I was stoked that Sylvia Day continued these books past the typical "3" story trilogies. I would LOVE it if another one is released after One with You! I'm so entwined in the lives of Gideon and Ava!!! I have to know what happens next in their crazy lives! I just know that a baby has got to come into the picture at some point!!! If you haven't read this series, you need to! Narration is perfection to the point of making you feel, see, hear etc the characters in the story. Granted I have to listen to these books with my ear piece or headphones in if my children are home. The intimate parts of the story are very descriptively written. They are written very well and with good taste, just not for the faint of heart or for little ears!!!

    "We're all a little crazy
    "

    I absolutely loved this book, how Ava fights for herself and her man. Throw in her love and protectiveness she has for her roommate and her life is a wild ride.

    "Didn't Like It"
    What would have made Bared to You better?

    I am one of the few people who didn't like this book. I don't usually write reviews but I disliked this book enough to make an exception. I couldn't wait for it to end. I am someone who was not familiar with this series or this author when I purchased the book based on pretty good reviews. For those similar, this book is one in a series of five based on the same characters. I didn't realize this when I purchased it and I have no inclination to listen to the next book.

    The book started out ok but after awhile the sex scenes became repetitive and I got tired of the female character constantly saying how beautiful Gideon was. This was one of those books where sex solves everything. Some of the issues are pretty heavy and the male character is borderline crazy stalker. Sex doesn't solve that.

    "Roller coaster of mental health needs"

    Two abused people having aggressive sex with each other. The characters are so insecure the whole storyline is a giant roller coaster. I would get annoyed with it all have to take breaks from the book.

    "LOVE GIDEON"

    I've read this book like 4 times and I've devoured it each and every single time. Listening to the story, however, was something else. It made this a whole new experience, and one I craved to get back into whenever I had to stop listening.

    The narrator's impression of Ava was perfect bit I didn't exactly love her voice for Gideon, especially when he said "Ava" in a distraught manner. That would be my only complaint. Other than that, this audiobook is a must!!!!!

    "Not a fan"

    Ok so I do enjoy sexy tragic romances but this was a struggle for me. Sex is not the answer for each and every bump in a relationship especially the kind of sex these two were having, rough anywhere at anytime bordering on 50 Shade-ish. And I can't believe I'm writing this but there was way to much sex in this book, I actually found myself fast forwarding though many of the sex scenes rolling my eyes in the process. So if you're all about sex scene after sex scene this book is for you, if not save your credit.

    Story
    "Downright dirty, downright delicious"

    Imagine 50 Shades that is written by someone who can actually write and you have the Crossfire series.

    Ava and Gideon. So, so much better than Ana and Christian and, god forfend, Edward and Bella.

    It's the usual story about a disgustingly wealthy man instantly besotted with a girl, but that's where it ends. Ava is sassy, snarky and sensible and one you can imagine might actually exist. She's confident and Day keeps her true to type. She makes no unfathomable decisions that are not part of her character, unlike Bell-Ana.

    Gideon is a little cliched, but Day's writing is so good that he comes across as strong and believable... well... um... most of him is believable. Certain parts are a little... unlikely.

    Quick synopsis: our two meet when Ava moves to NYC and they are instantly, wildly obsessed with each other. They acknowledge that it's unhealthy but fight to keep each other. Gideon is hiding hideous abuse, Ava is hiding rape and betrayal.

    I think what I like is that it doesn't suddenly become roses, blue birds and violins. They mess up frequently but pick their way through the wreckage of their pasts.

    I have to mention Ava's best friend, the bisexual Cary who is just delicious!

    Jill Redfield is a fabulous narrator - perfect for Ana's character. She's bold and confident, just like Ana.

    "Enjoyed"
    Where does Bared to You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Loved the series although felt a lot of it was similar to 50 Shades but that didn't stop me enjoying it as more of a story.Looking forward to book 4. :-)


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

    Definitely similar to 50 Shades.


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

    Was so easy listening. Would have preferred Gideon's speech to have been a mans voice and not Jill imitating.


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

    Couldn't stop listening. Gutted I have now finished the three books.

    "Better than fifty!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book as well as the sequel.  Having originally chosen it to quench my need for more of the infamous fiddy I never expected it to be quite so similar in it's story or characters (sans BDSM aspect).

    Definitely better written, less repetitive and more accessible but playing to the strengths of fifty shades and quenching the thirst that the brakethrough trilogy awakened. Part of you longs for Gideon Cross whilst another part wants to be him (very Freudian!).  Narration by Jill Redfield was great and also seemed superior to that of the  50 shades trilogy. 



    Highly recommend listening to this book with a bit of James Arthur in the the background for a truly liberating and silky smooth experience. Counting down the days until the third book is released!

    If life is not the same without Christian Grey then this book will help fill that void. A great read/listen with fantastic, dynamic characters. This is a must read!

    "Plagiarism without talent"

    This book is a shameless plagiarism of shades of Grey but without E.L James's talent. It's just a lot of clichés without the sensitivity and humour that we loved in E.L James's books.

    However, Jill Redfield did a great job (except for Gideon's voice who speak like a mafia godfather), I hope she will read a lot of other books.



    If you really want to read good erotics books go listening Olivia Cunning or read Kate Grey, they are very talented artist, you will not be disapointed like with this rip off from Sylvia Day.

    I enjoyed the story but was not overly happy with the narrator. All the characters seem to roll into 1 and a couple of times it sounded like it was recorded in space.

    If you liked 50 shades then this is definitely a book for you. the same idea as the 50 shades but a much better feel and flo.

    I enjoyed the characters in this book and found them far more enjoyable and much more believable. Got me hooked from first page to the very last page. Can't wait to get into the next instalment
