DescriptionBared to You by Sylvia Day is the first in the Crossfire trilogy featuring Gideon and Eva, two wounded souls who come together in an explosion of lust and passion as intoxicating as it is devastating - the perfect read for fans of bestselling erotic romance Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James. Our journey began in fire...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...Intensely romantic, darkly sensual and completely addictive, Bared to You will take you to the very limits of obsession - and beyond. Sylvia Day is the number one New York Times and number one international bestselling author of more than a dozen award-winning novels, which have been translated into thirty eight languages. She has been nominated for the Goodreads Choice Award for Best Author and her work has been honoured as Amazon's Best of the Year in Romance. She has won the RT Book Reviews Reviewers' Choice Award and been nominated for the Romance Writers of America's prestigious RITA award twice. The second novel in the series Reflected in You is available from Penguin in october. `Bared to You has an emotional feel similar to Fifty Shades of Grey...It is full of emotional angst, scorching love scenes, and a compelling story line.` (Dear Author). `While it is true that Bared to You has much in common with Fifty Shades of Grey, Bared to You is a more complete story, one that is better written. The characters are better developed and the story is far sexier. This is an erotic romance that should not be missed. It will make readers fall in love.` (Romance Novel News). `The secondary characters are just as flawed as Eva and Gideon, which makes Bared to You richer and more real to me than many of the contemporary books I've read in a while.` (Romance Junkies). `This is a sophisticated, provocative, titillating, highly erotic, sexually driven read and is extremely well done. I enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey, but I loved Bared to You.` (Swept Away by Romance). `This book was just incredible. I couldn't put it down! The sex was so hot and the relationship was so juicy that I just had to know what was coming next!` (Read Our Lips). `It literally blew my mind and after finishing it, I wasn't able to stop thinking about it! ...Bared to You is an intense novel full of hardships, heartbreak, overcoming obstacles, trust, and most of all ...trying to find love in a relationship that may seem hopeless. I truly and wholeheartedly was amazed by this book.` (Happy Ever After). `Bared to You obliterates the competition with its real, emotionally intense characters that deal with pain and pleasure with honesty`. (Joyfully Reviewed).

Reviews for Bared to You
waiting for Refected!
fantastic! Gideon's demons mixed with Eva's brought about a wonderful read, have looking forward to Refelected in you, so I can stop re reading the first 2 books! well worth readinging a few times. by Christine Wilcox
Much better than 50 shades of grey. The characters are great and I could not put this book down! by Nicole Hatzopoulos
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 Suvi
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 karen
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'Grady
- Top 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 Johnston
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 Sutton
Really enjoyed this book. Cannot wait for the next chapter. by robert Maruszczak
It's just 50 Shades of Grey with the names changed! I enjoyed it, but it's not anything new. by Jessica Denston
