Bared to You: A Crossfire Novel (Paperback)
Short Description for Bared to You 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.

Not that impressed
For me, the book felt cold and mechanical, and lacked the art of seduction. Quite well written but I don't want to know all the horrid things that happened to the main characters in their childhoold, so this is my first and last read in the Crossfire series. I prefer the Fifty Shades-trilogy. by Suviunder review
Very "Fifty Shades"
Dare I say that the characters are perhaps a tad less annoying though?
I loved the Fifty Shades trilogy even though I was very hesitant to jump on the band wagon that was to begin with.
When I started reading this book it did disappoint me thinking that it was just going to be the same but as the characters come alive they grew on me.
Easy reading. by karenunder review
It took me forever to get an ARC of this one to read and even longer for me to read it. I was really hesitant to read it because I've never read the author before and all the hype kind of made me really nervous to read it in case I didn't like it. Luckily for me I had nothing to worry about because I LOVED this book.
I know this book was published in the wake of the series Fifty Shades of Grey (Which I also read and enjoyed a lot) but this one in my opinion was a better read. I mean there are a lot of similarities between Bared to You and Fifty Shades but there are a lot of differences as well.
I'm still trying to figure out why I enjoyed this book so much since Gideon is not the kind of man I would ever want to be involved in and I frequently found myself wanting to stab him through my kindle for how he was treating Eva in the novel. I honestly don't really care for him that much but I do enjoy the chemistry between them.
I found the story to be intriguing and entirely all consuming I think I read the entire book in just a couple hours spread over two days. I was completely and utterly addicted to the intensity Eva and Gideon had for each other.
I think what I enjoyed most about them as a couple was how flawed they are. Both suffer from their own personal demons. Eva was dealing with her own past and was trying to learn more about Gideon but he kept wanting to keep himself blocked off from her as he'd never really had a vanilla relationship like the one he wanted with Eva and kept pulling away. It was getting to the point that I was hoping that Eva would drop him like a hot potato and wash her hands of him for good but in the end I'm glad that she didn't.
This book is absolutely not for everyone and that's okay some people are going to like it and some aren't but I think that if you're looking for a book that's in my opinion much more emotionally intense read than Fifty Shade with a lot more spice (even though it's lacking the BDSM qualities of Fifty Shades) this might just be the read for you. Sylvia Day created one of the hottest couples on the book market today and this really shows her talent in creating characters that while they aren't perfect do seem to go together quite well. I know I was impressed with this book and when I read it I couldn't wait to read to find out what happened next between this pair. I highly recommend this title as well as this author who after only two books has gotten a fan for life.

Bared to you
Much better than 50 shades (which I only read to page 200). This book is well written and has characters that develop with the storyline. Both characters are somewhat likable and have interesting personalities. It was a book that I could not put down. S&M is only really hinted towards and Gideon is a much more likeable character than Mr.Grey.
If 50 shades has aroused your interest in romantic novels, but you still like a book that has a storyline, is well written and is somewhat romantic then go for Bared to you.
Looking forward to the next book so much that I've pre-oredered it! by Orla O'Gradyunder review
I read this because honestly it popped up in my "recommended for you" and I am sooooooo glad it did! This book is so addictive and for all those comparing it to 50 Shades, you have every right to as there are similarities but in saying that, this book is better written, more believable, the characters are like real people not just another typical (cant even find the right word)
i devoured this in a night, it is amazing and i highly recommend it to everyone! I cant WAIT for the next one :P by Samantha Johnstonunder review
Gideon and Eva's similar story has more emotion than FSOG and I felt for them both. I really liked Gideon even though he is a messed up person and found myself hoping he sorts himself out. Can't wait for 2nd book "Reflected in You". by Marian Suttonunder review
Really enjoyed this book. Cannot wait for the next chapter. by robert Maruszczakunder review
It's just 50 Shades of Grey with the names changed! I enjoyed it, but it's not anything new. by Jessica Denstonunder review
Dominates over Fifty Shades
I really enjoyed Fifty Shades Series and only read the bad reviews afterward when I tried to find a new similar book to read. I purchased Bared to You on recommendation and can honestly say that it is by far, a much better written book. The story has a great deal of similarities in the stories (between Bared to You and Fifty Shades) but I would recommend this book to anyone that thought Fifty Shades was a dissapointment. The characters have greater depth and are more believable. by Amanda Nortonunder review
