Bared to You (Crossfire, #1) by Sylvia Day

Bared to You (Crossfire, #1)

From #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Sylvia Day comes the provocative masterstroke of abandon and obsession that redefined the meaning of desire and became a global phenomenon... "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...

    Possible spoilers and definitely NSFW (unless your workplace is made of awesome). Oh, my god, you guys, this book! Oh, my god...I went into this thinking it was going to be completely and totally lame. Another Fifty Shades of Moronic Writing. Another horrifying testament to the standards which modern writers are apparently held. And do you know what? It WAS. Buuuut....for the most part, I had a good time. How? By laughing uncontrollably at nearl...

    Okay, with roughly 100 pages to go, I think I've read enough. I just couldn't finish this book and find myself very disappointed that Ms. Day created her own story based on the wildly popular E.L. James book, "Fifty Shades of Grey." Sure, Christian Grey is now, "Gideon Cross" (I'm not a rocket scientist, but I figured out the initial exhange - along with changing "Ana" to "Eva.") But here's where I'm baffled: Ms. Day is actually a good writer. Th...

    4.5!! WAAAAY better than that Fifty Shades of Grey. I do get the comparison, but truly this is a MUCH better read. Simply put, this book had the polish that FSoG grossly lacked. (I read FSoG just before I read this one. Sadly, I found it disturbing and only gave it a 1-star review.)The major similarities: --hero is a young (late 20's), gorgeous, brilliant zillionaire business mogul who sports non-stop erections and has sex on the brain 24/7--her...

    6 +++ stars!!!! SQUEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! HOLY. FREAKING. GOD. THIS. BOOK. IS. BEYOND. AMAZING. This book was absolute perfection for me!! It had me swooning, drooling and panting over Gideon Cross and had me reading for the better part of it with the world's biggest grin on my face. It was the perfect blend of heart warming, HOTNESS , and seriously tortured Alpha hero (and heroine).The story is told from the perspective of Eva Hammel, a 24 year old...

    1.5 starsHaving read and enjoyed a number of Sylvia Day’s historicals I decided to try this contemporary by her. I picked this book up at NetGalley based on the blurb. The book sounded interesting (despite the blurb's faint purple prose), it was categorised as romance and I’ve been on the lookout for more contemporary romances. For my enjoyment of contemporary romantic fiction, there has to be at least some believability to the plot, some cre...

    Warning-Contains minor spoilers!!May hinder your reading experience!!My very Honest review--(fans of this book please bear with me.)The story is written from the perspective of Eva Tramell.Because of her new job she has just moved to Manhattan from San Diego.The first time she meets with Gideon Cross,sparks fly.The tension between them is palpable and their chemistry is nearly explosive.I really liked the first few chapters,which shows them skirt...

    I decided to read Bared To You because it was sold as a well-written version of Fifty Shades of Grey. To give credit where credit is due, Sylvia Day is not E.L. James. Her grammar is good, she varies her sentence structures and, although her propensity for purple prose is at times off-putting, she's a competent wordsmith. That being said, I would not want to imply there was anything remotely literary about this book. There isn't. Which is a shame...

    5 Big Stars! This is a sophisticated, provocative, titillating, highly erotic, sexually driven read and is extremely well done. The title fits the book in more ways than one. It not only applies to the sexual nature of the book, but how Eva and Gideon give of themselves to one each other in body, mind, heart and soul. Eva is a smart, self-assured woman who finds herself drawn to the charismatic, enigmatic Gideon. Their relationship is initially b...

    Fell short of my expectations.I really wanted to like this book. The first few chapters held promise for me. I felt as though it was well written and had good dialogue. There are terrific reviews, and I picked it up after just having finished FSOG. I assumed it would be everything I was searching for in my next read but, for me, it fell short. My biggest issues were being unable to connect with Gideon at all, and I didn't find that the characters...

    Hot, passionate and totally addictive read. The chemistry between Eva and Gideon, explodes on the page. They are made for each other. They're not perfect, as they have their own issues to deal with. But as they work themselves through it, you'll be taken on an emotional ride like no other. Wow, what a ride!Gideon If you want a great story with a lot of heat, you can't go wrong with this book. Loved it!
