Overview

“Full of emotional angst, scorching love scenes, and a compelling storyline.”—Dear Author



THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER



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...

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Another beautiful couple is struck and confounded by magnetic attraction and scorching sex and may even heal their tormented pasts through their journey from lust to love. On the first day of her new job in Manhattan, Eva meets the uber-rich and ultra-sexy Gideon Cross and, despite her initial misgivings about his upfront approach to getting her into his bed, winds up falling for him. (Of course.) The plot winds through a few upscale events and business meetings, and Eva becomes the employee her new boss, Mark, can't live without (of course). Meanwhile, in her surprisingly generous free time, for an up-and-coming advertising assistant in New York City, Eva hooks up with Gideon an astonishing amount, in very erotic and apparently satisfying ways--described in hot-and-heavy detail. Eva and Gideon inch their way closer to Love and Trust and Commitment, while in the background, old lovers resurface, family members seem suspiciously nefarious and Eva's bisexual roommate has couple issues of his own, leading to Trouble in Paradise on a number of different fronts. Day has produced an eerily similar novel (and the first of a planned series of three) to Fifty Shades of Grey, with comparable characters, storyline and sexual exploits. Day is a talented, prolific erotic romance writer and puts together a highly charged story that flows and hits the mark but somehow misses some of the heart and surprising charm of the original, despite more competent writing and technically skilled storytelling. Erotic romance fans will likely enjoy this story, though they may find themselves bemused by how perfect the couple is and how very closely the book follows the blueprint of the wildly popular Fifty Shades trilogy.

    Useless sample

    I would love to review the book but won't buy it without a test drive! The sample is 20-something pages of notes and dedications, without a single page from the story, and therefore is completely useless.

    First thing: This book was one of the best I have read. I have read it at least 4 times and I am already counting the days till the next part is out. Gideon and Eva's characters were heartbreaking and amazing. I love everything about Bared To You.

    You people who compare it to Fifty Shades irritate me. You obviously know nothing of books. Sylvia Day's writing style is COMPLETELY different from E.L James. You pick up on that as soon as you read the first chapter. I also have Fifty Shades and also have re-read those over and over and they are just as amazing.
    But Bared To You is nothing like Fifty Shades at all. Two Great books with totally different people and story lines.

    Bared To You is so full of passion I felt everything they felt and every time I read it I have all the same feelings.

    I found myself reading and thinking to myself, this sounds a lot like fifty. My main problem with "bared to you" was there being absolutely no character build up. I dont sense the connection between the eva and gideon and their relationship starts out rather crude and too quickly for my liking. I was struggling to like the main characters. I dont feel the romance at all, which is what I loved about fifty. This is definitely not "50 times better", it seems more like a wannabe to me.

    Worst

    This was probably the worst book I have ever read it seems to be a quickly put-together imitation if the "Grey" series. Even used the same initials for the main character only reversed. Come on, if you're going to write a book, at least use YOUR OWN imagination.

    Bared by honesty

    After reading Fifty Shades, I was sure I would not find a book that compared. Christian Grey touchedon that dark sexual side of many us. And who doesn't want to feel cherished and possessd once in awhile. But the story of Gideon and Eva - though equally hot and unyielding - touched me on an even deeper level. As a survivor of sexual abuse, I can relate to both characters... the demons, the struggle, the need for control, the hope for normalcy. Relationships are tough regardless...but when you have two people as broken internally as Eva and Gideon, it can make a relationship impossibly unhealthy...particularly if they are not honest with each other. It is this honesty that separates this book from Fifty Shades for me. These are two broken adults who want a chance at love and happiness after all they have been through and need to be honest with each other to make it work. I loved this book and look forward to the next one!

    DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS BOOK!

    This is just like EL James 50 Shades of Grey book! Way too many similarites. Even used the words "insatiable" and "safe word" just like in the 50 shades trilogy. Not a unique book at all, waste of money!

    I read 50 Shades, Bared to You is ten times the story and Sylvia

    I read 50 Shades, Bared to You is ten times the story and Sylvia Day is a hundred times the writer. I positively loved this story a lot better.

    Too similar

    This book is WAY too similar to Fifty Shades. Not original at all and not nearly as good as Fifty.

    BETTER WRITING THEM FIFTY SHADES

    Lets be honest..You can't compare a seasoned author with a person who turned a fan fic into a book. Don't get me I really enjoyed the Fifty Shades story and characters but the writing was not technically good..although it got better as the books progressed. Fifty Shades after awhile did just feel like one S&M sex scene after another....it got to be a little too much for me...but I still loved the series for what it was .....a fun read. NOW BARED TO YOU FOR ME WAS A BETTER TECHNICALLY WRITTEN BOOK. Thats just a fact..it was written by a seasoned auther and it showed..so where I can see the similarities on one hand..to me this was a much more engrossing tale..and the two main characters just seem more real to me. The sex, although plentiful is not as hard core as the Fifty Shades Trilogy which I could relate to more....no hardcore S&M and in this way totally differs from FSoG. The only complaint I would say to Ms Day is this: Please stop using the C**t word so liberally...Im no prude but it was too much and it annoyed me because I loved everything else about the book except for this...to me it just declassed it..even FSoG had enough class not to go there..but just my opinion. I LOOK FORWARD TO OCTOBER THOUGH AND CANT WAIT TO SEE WHATS NEXT FOR GIDEON AND EVA!

    Skip it

    Why is this a best seller? The book's marketing team is over selling it as the next fifty shades of gray. Don't waste the money.

    How is it considered a sample when you don't get to sample the actual book. I won't buy without a real sample to actually see how I like the authors writing

    I just finished the first book in the Cross Fire series called B

    I just finished the first book in the Cross Fire series called Bared to You and it was horrible. I bought it because I heard it was just as good as the 50 Shades series. Ladies, the language was horrible, gross and very crude. It was like reading a cheap porno. I will pass on book 2 & 3. I wasted $7 dollars on a bunch of crap. The story line was rushed, made no sense and there was very little romance. Okay..., the main character said a few sweet words but he did a lot of creepy stuff like he created a duplicate room for the leading lady at his place. He re-created/duplicated her bedroom for her at his place..., really? Who does that? He was a sleep -walker/rapist I don't know what the term is for people that lash out and sexually abuse the woman he loves while sleeping. Save your money.

    Ok read

    Overall the book was an ok read. I wish the relationship between the main characters could have had more depth. They went from lust to obsessed overnight. The Gideon character was so all over the place I found him more creepy then sexy. The book does leaving you wondering what secrets the next book will hold.

    Copied from 50 shades

    It feels like this story was a copy of 50 shades. It was an okay read but i was not impressed. Didnt even compare to the energy and emotion that 50 shades had.

    ANONYMOUS

    I thought that this was a pleasantly steamy read, but things tended to move a little too unbelievably fast and with little depth. All other reviews that compared this to Fifty Shades were right in the similarities, but it was much too similar and without the class and anticipation that Fifty Shades has to offer. The language used was at times pornographic and crude as opposed to sexy and intimate. Overall it was ok, but will not take the place of Fifty Shades for die hard fans.
