I picked this up because it has been compared to Fifty Shades, which I loved! I was having Christian Grey withdrawals! LOL! I read this book pretty quickly and it really held my attention. Eva has a lot more fight in her than passive Ana which I respected because she reacted more like I would have. Gideon is really emotional in a romantic way that made my heartache at times. I will say that there was a lot of unnecessary dirty talk but overall it was pretty hot! Though it was similar to Fifty, it had many differences too, no real "kinky f***ery". I recommend this book! I can't wait for the sequel! ( )

Bared to You was very similar to 50 shades but differnt and addicting enough to keep me coming back for more and more and more... ( )

Mmmm...no sè ...

Es entretenido , eso sì. Sin embargo , resulta una copia casi fiel de "Fifty Shades of Grey" . Bah , no una copia . Una parodia . Hubo veces que casi suelto una que otra risita porque , si , es tan igual a Fifty que produce eso ,RISAS .

Por otro lado , la autora le sacò lo que Fifty tiene demàs ,es decir, "BARED.." no tiene esos modales y frases amaneradas que resultan insoportablemente antiguas en el libro de E.L. James. Por eso le pongo tres y no dos puntos . Otro punto es por la buena calidad de las escenas eròticas y el hecho de que la protagonista no sea una pusilànime . El ùltimo punto es que ... bue ,si te deja un poco de intriga saber como va a seguir . ( )

Ufff , que bodrio . Una parodia de lo que tendría que ser un buen romance .

Hay escenas tan ridículas que tuve que saltear muchas hojas para poder terminarlo .

Ejemplo ,

La pareja principal acaba de tener sexo y ahora duermen los dos en la misma cama . A la mitad de la noche , la piba tiene una pesadilla y se despierta en los brazos del muchachito .

PIBA : ¿Qué me pasó?
MUCHACHITO : Estabas gritando y agitando los brazos .

Lloran los dos , ella le explica que es un trauma de la infancia y al rato vuelven a dormir .

Minutos después , el Muchachito empieza a gritar y a agitar los brazos en la cama . La Piba lo despierta y lo abraza.

MUCHACHITO ; ¿Qué me pasó?
PIBA : Estabas gritando y agitando los brazos .

Se abrazan y el le dice que es un trauma de la infancia .




ASI ES LA ESCENA . LO JURO!!! Me pareció tan cómica que a partir de eso ya el resto de la novela no me lo pude tomar en serio .

La manera que estas autoras de moda banalizan lo que tendrían que ser temas serios como la deserción o abuso familiar , las violaciones o la desgracia que sea que le meten a los personajes es irritante ...

OTRO EJEMPLO DE LA RIDICULEZ PARA REDONDEAR ,

(Primera vez que se encuentran los personajes , la PIBA tropieza en la entrada al edificio y cuando levanta la cabeza ve al MUCHACHITO ...

Monólogo interno de la piba : Ahí estaba , tan hermoso que incluso con el traje y corbata se le notabaN los músculos en todo el cuerpo . Me miraba intensamente como si me desnudara . En vez de sentirme ofendida , sentí un líquido entre las piernas (SI , DICE ASI) y los pezones endurecidos . Me miraba ... me miraba como si sintiera lo mismo ....


TODO esto mientras ella está agachada en el piso con la cabeza a la altura de la bragueta de él , obvio . Y no sé cuando tiempo pasan en esa posición porque lo que tarda en describir esa mirada (y todos las decenas de detalles que descubrió en el cuerpo de él ) ya pasaron al menos quince minutos y seguramente toda la gente alrededor también se estaba calentando . Lo próximo que nos vamos a enterar es que va a salir un libro desde el punto de vista de alguno de esos , contandonos como se excitaron con los pezones endurecidos de la PIBA y los pectorales que sobresalian del traje del MUCHACHITO .

Le regalo un punto porque hay un par de escenas eróticas que están bastante pasables y también porque la pareja no es TAAAN insoportable como otras (ufff , si , hay peores) .

EL LIBRO ENTERO es Fifty Shades con otro nombre .

This is 50 shades better than the more popular triolgy of the same genre right now. This is what I was hoping for with more cohesive writing, more exciting description and slightly more realism. ( )

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

Eva Trammel, plagued by her own insecurities, is drawn into an intense, obssessive relationship with the wealthy and arrogant Gideon Cross.
