I start this off with cursing Sylvia Day. Damn you!! Damn you for making me addicted to this book! I'm addicted to Eva and Gideon's story. The sex scenes were erotica at its finest. These two make one delicious story. I loved everything about this book, the characters (Cary needs a hug and swift kick to the ass, unsure which comes first though), the setting (NYC is pretty awesome), the pace, the emotions, the story length...hell I even adore the damn wardrobe.

Gideon...hmm...he's extraordinary. I was so upset when I got to the last word. I wished it could have went on. Hence me cursing Sylvia (but the cursing is coming from a good place, so don't fret, I enjoy the literary crack Sylvia provided.)

I am anxious to know what happened to Gideon. And anxiously await the next book in the series. (HINT, HINT, HINT).

So I recommend this book to people who adored Beautiful Disaster and stories like them because, Bared to You" is one you definitely want to add to your shelf.

I found this book absolutely enthralling. The heat and the chill that this book revolves around, the chasing and the running. . . It sucked me right on in and didn't release me until the end. ( )

I must be honest with myself this book reminded me of Fifty shades 2 years back

I will probably never read this ( )

If you have read Fifty Shades of Grey then you will probably like Bared to You, haven't read shades of grey myself but I know that they are exactly alike. (I read several chapters of grey but couldn't get into.)

In Bared To You both the male and female protagonists have emotional scars from their past and no experience with healthy romantic relationships to speak of, and in turn it affected they way they, or more so Gideon Cross, dealt with relationships. Gideon is a powerful business tycoon that has never had a girlfriend and prefers to date brunettes but Eva isn't a brunette. The book delves more into Eva Hammel's past experience but Gideon didn't open up much about his own, but as the story progresses you can kinda put two and two together. Maybe the next book will delve more into what drives Gideon. Gideon needs control and prefers to be the dom, (his own words) and for his partner to be submissive.

In my opinion I prefer Gideons's character over Christian Grey's, Gideon didn't come off as arrogant and he treated Eva with a lot more respect. (Did read several chapters of Fifty Shades but couldn't get into it.)

The secondary characters are very interesting and some are funny, they helped to create a good backdrop to the story.

So this book had a lot of sex.

It was basically relationship drama.
Sex.
Relationship drama.
Sex.
Relationship drama.
Sex.
And so forth.

This was definitely better than Fifty Shades of Grey. I liked it but I wasn't blown away by it. I wanted more BDSM type of sex than what I got. But I suspect that will be developed in the other books. ( )

Book description
Back Cover:

Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness-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...
Haiku summary
