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.

    "Literary Iron Chef Demonstration"
    Where does Bared to You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the very best.


    Any additional comments?

    Like a literary version of “Iron Chef,” Sylvia Day (Crossfire series),*OWNS* E.L. James (Fifty Shades series). Sylvia Day uses the same basic ingredients: genre of books, demographics of characters, familiar story line, target market of readers) to demonstrate how *truly* skillful writing, elegant, deep, worthy-of-caring-about character development, artistically, well-constructed and timed plot development (similar to my favorite (Diana Gabaldon - "Outlander" series) from my preferred genre historical fiction). Ms. Day demonstrates a far more mature, skillful hand at the judicial and relevant use of heart-stopping, synapse-melting, um, er…”provocative and engaging literary devices" as well as a 10,000% better choice of a more gifted and professional narrator in the audio (Audible.com) version. These are intense page-turners, with ample sprinklings of opportunities to relieve the tension by laughing out loud and sharing introspection with the flawed, funny, complicated, engaging, and sympathetic characters. Just don’t listen and drive; you’ll find yourself driving off of a cliff. Maybe while running on a treadmill? 9-) Just remember to breathe. (Not for those who are uncomfortable with some explicit sexual situations or language, even though it is well done and critical to both character, plot, and conflict development). Highly recommended. Well done.

    Story
    "Far More Colorful Than 'Grey'"

    The Crossfire protagonists, Eva and Gideon, are far more colorful, pun intended, than Fifty Shades of Grey. In Fifty, the heroine Anastasia is black and white - the innocent virgin falling under the spell of an experienced man. But here in Bared to You, Eva is no innocent. Darkness in her past has made her complicated sexually, and Gideon, with skeletons of his own, falls as much under her spell as she does under his. I've read both series (Crossfire and Fifty) and I've listened to both on Audible. If someone asks me which to recommend as better, hands down it's Crossfire. More dimensional characters and a far more complex plot. Oh and the sex is much hotter. My ears were burning!

    Story
    "Saucy story with an hot plot and an okay narrator."
    What did you love best about Bared to You?

    It's addictive. I finished it in just a few days. The story is very similar to Fifty Shades of Gray so if you liked that, you'll like this. It has a quick romance, where everything happens at lightening speed and you're surprised that only 3 days when there was enough action to fill 3 months, and steamy somewhat controlling sex with both people having issues.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There aren't many characters so I can't really pick a favorite. I like that Ava is made out to be a hard worker and it is refreshing to see her try and stand up to Gideon, but she often gives in which is annoying.


    What didn’t you like about Jill Redfield’s performance?

    It wasn't necessarily Jill's performance that I didn't like but that she was the only narrator. When she has to do the Gideon's voice it takes away from the steamy moments in the story. Stories like this definitely need two narrators.


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

    Yes. I practically did.

    "Good book, not so good narrator."
    Would you listen to Bared to You again? Why?

    Yes, I just have to get past the narrator making the main male character sound like a pervert.


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

    I don't think any were really "memorable".


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jill Redfield’s performances?

    If she doesn't do exrotic romance.


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

    Sensual with baggage.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the story, but this genre is not the narrator's nitch. I had to really try to hear a different voice for male lead, she ruined that character with her spin on how he would talk. Really took away from the story.

    "Too much boinking, not enough substance!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would make Eva a stronger person, not so weak. She didn't want to be a walking vagina but that's what she ended up being. No matter what she suffered in her childhood, she also suffered as an adult at Gideon's hands. He wanted to boink her from the moment he laid eyes on her and that's all they did.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sylvia Day again?

    At this writing... yes


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

    It's the first time I've listened to her. She did good.. Her voice for Gideon gave me a chuckle everytime.. (it was a dumbed down impression of a strong, handsome billionaire)


    Was Bared to You worth the listening time?

    Yes

    "Loved Listening to every minute of this book."
    Where does Bared to You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top of the list one of my favorite audiblebook.Eva and Gideon are two messed up people who need therapy compared to Fifty Shades of Grey this book has no BDSM. The two main characters hardly communicate except when they have sex.


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

    When Eva and Gideon had sex for the first time and Cary mini orgy.


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

    The narration is great.


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

    No really all the characters in this book is really broken.


    Any additional comments?

    Too much sex it gets boring and how the hell can one person have a orgasm so much time.

    "You've got to be kidding!"

    No innocent young lady here. And guys this is not a turn on. What made Fifty Shades of Grey a super book was the combination of innocense, character development, hot kinky sex and a real plot. This is a wannabe copy cat book that left out everything but the sex.The cold and mechanical way this book approaches that . . well, I'd rather listen to my Wall Street Journal daily capsule. Forget this one.

    "Plagiarism At Its Best"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If Sylvia Day would have come up with her OWN story instead of hijacking E.L. James Fifty Shades storyline, this could have very well been a better story. I'm waiting for the lawsuit, cause this is Plagiarism at its best.


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

    No, it has not. However, I will not listen or read another book by Sylvia Day.


    What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

    The narrator did an excellent job. I will listen to other books by Jill Redfield.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    This book had NO redeeming qualities.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a total waste of a audible credit. As an avid reader, I'm aware that some books will have many similarities. I'm simply appauled that Sylvia Day copied and passed the work off as her own. In my honest opinion, she cheated readers and give good authors a bad name. WHERE IS THE LAWSUIT!!!

    "Hated it"
    What would have made Bared to You better?

    A story! Some character development. Some depth to any of it.


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

    Yes


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jill Redfield’s performances?

    Not if there are any men in it. She did well with the lead character, but Gideon...oh boy...horrible.


    What character would you cut from Bared to You?

    Eva and Gideon


    Any additional comments?

    This was a complete Fifty Shades of Grey knock-off and has me so disappointed and, frankly, disgusted, that I don't think I'll try another of this author's books - though I've heard her other books are good. I don't know if I want to take the chance.<br/>
