    Possible spoilers and definitely NSFW unless your workplace is made of awesome Oh my god you guys this book Oh my godI 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 Buuuutfor the most part I had a good time How? By laughing uncontrollably at nearly every sex scene and believe me there are many There isn't much of a plot but then I guess there doesn't really need to be since it's just smut cleverly snort disguised as literature But fans generally defend the story and I've gotta say as far as stories go it's pretty lame I mean come on peeps They're damaged they're melodramatic they're whiny and self absorbed they're like sooo hot and the entire story is them fucking and then whining about it and then fucking some When I first got started I was terrified because I hit pretentious wordage in the second sentence I wasn't surprised by my roommate's emphatic pronouncement The entire book goes on in a similar vein Plus there's the added bonus of being told very inconseuential details like what color shoes Eva's wearing how many steps she had to climb how often she eats yogurt to keep regular I'm making up my own but you get the gist Having your eyes raped by adjectives and other useless textual diarrhea does not usually make for a highly compelling read There is seriously a point where Eva tells the reader how in love she is with New York because it's so different from her hometown of San Diego with all the people and activity and sights and sounds I'm really not kidding The first uarter of the book was basically just useless info dump nonsense Things picked up a little bit when Eva first met Gideon only because the writing in that scene was so ludicrous Phrases like exuisite masculinity magnificent maleness scorching force of willand let's not forget such treasures as I thought for a moment that he might be able to make me orgasm just by talking long enough and I looked at him in his civilized urbane outrageously expensive suit and thought of raw primal sheet clawing fucking Try saying that three times fastThis was also when I was introduced to Gideon's apparent mind control powers Eva just goes on and on about how he's put some kind of spell on her she's inexplicably drawn to him caught up in his magnetic force blabbidy blah blah I suppose it doesn't hurt that Gideon is savagely gorgeous and that Eva's eyes burned just from looking at him But then Oh then I got to the good stuff I'm not saying that as a pervert but as a lover of all things inappropriately hilarious If I didn't know any better I would swear to everything holy that this book is satire Because while some of the sex scenes were hot they were almost always laced with one or two lines that had me laughing so hard I was in tears Without further ado I'm going to treat you to a small sampling Seriously prepare yourselves for this Take a deep breath make sure your bladder is empty and that you've got water and aid nearby in case you fall over And for the love of eye bleach don't let your kids read it his powerful body straining with the primal need to mate The rhythmic slap of his heavy balls against the curve of my buttocks Then he ripped open his button fly and pulled his big beautiful penis out Gideon battered my tender sex with that brutally thick column of rigid fleshhis breath leaving him in primitive grunts every time he hit the end of me'I'm so deep in youI can feel it against my stomachfeel my dick pounding into you' Seriously is that shit supposed to be sexy? Because it's just not He can feel his dick through her abdomen? No That's not how wombs work Or dicks Or anything She calls her ass her rear and that's silly when you're talking about a guy finger banging your fart box but when Gideon jammed his finger into her puckered hole I nearly lost my dinnersanitysense of direction Just take your pick because my mind shorted out for a few seconds I hate the word puckered and all its variations now I really wish she'd just called it her puckering poopshoot and at least given the reader the joy of alliteration Did I mention he's apparently ramming his semen in there? Oh and this is after she stands up and drips his load all over the floor making Gideon all hot and bothered because apparently lack of adeuate hygiene is a major turn on for rich neurotic alpha males Edit 122115 I read mostly mm romance now and I've read and enjoyed some pretty raunchy anal sex scenes complete with semen insertion And you know what? I still don't find this book hotAt one point Gideon says he feels a desire to mark Eva like she's his property I always get sidetracked when writing reviews like this because all I ever want to focus on is how funny it all is but maybe you want to hear how the story stacks up how the characterization is how the plot progresses or what the obstacles are I can probably sum each area up in five words or less Story Two people fuckingCharacterization Cliched and irritatingPlot progression It's two people fucking?Obstacles Sexual abuse and shallowness Yes they're both damaged and need each other and he's dark and brooding and she's blonde and angelic and the two of them end up in this mindfuck of a relationship this monumentally codependent clusterfuck of sex and jealousy and petty mind games and when I wasn't laughing I kinda wanted to shoot myself in the face Guess what else? Gideon gets all rapey when he's sleepy No seriously he rapes in his sleepIt's stupid Really really stupid So why two stars? I'll tell you why two stars The room lit up in a sudden flare of illumination I turned toward himAnd found him masturbating with shocking viciousness Happy Reading

    45 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 reviewThe 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 247 hero has a controlling and obsessive desire for the heroine including a jealous streak that is off the charts hero a has a dark and tortured soul that shapes his very world brought on by years of abuse as a child hero maintains a platonic relationship with his past sexual partners which drives a major wedge with the heroine HOT HOT HOT sex scenesThe major differences Gideon isn’t a predator Unlike Grey Gideon never tries to coerce and manipulate Eva into doing anything that is for his sole pleasure alone He doesn’t try to coerce and manipulate her into believing his desires should be the only desires that matter Eva has about 100 I points on Ana and can actually converse in an intelligent conversation without all of the “Whoa” “Oh My” and “Gasp” To say I like Eva better than Ana is an understatement Gideon isn’t into ‘period sex’ Yuck No BDSM at least not yet This series will continue so hard to say where it will go Hmmmm There was some light talk of subs doms pain as pleasureetc No Arnica cream to sooth ‘bruising sprains and injuries’ Christian’s remedy for a bruising sore ass oh lovely The writing is great Tight edited and well plotted It is also uite refreshing when compared to the comic book tone of FSoG Not just ONE but TWO main characters with damaged souls Yep Eva has a dark soul too and it controls herThere are some other small similarities to FSoG but for the most part I found this book stood well on its own Gideon was a damaged soul and the relationship between him and Eva often felt like a co dependent mess and not a true romance Eva’s past continues to haunt her so the main uestion is can two damaged souls build a healthy relationship? Beneath all the layers of their relationship I did believe they will find true love and heal as best they can from their past I never believed that with Grey and Ana in FSoG This was a gripping story and I loved watching these two come together and try to get it right If you are holding off reading this because you didn’t like FSoG you might miss out If you like dark edgy erotica romance with great writing then forget the comparison to FSoG I can’t wait to see how Sylvia Day closes their story Sept 21 Audiobook review and updateThe audiobook version of this book is really good Loved the narrator I think I enjoyed this book even the second time through The connection between Gideon and Eva is so deep and emotionally raw and I think I connected with them even in my re read They are intensely interesting characters both individually and together as a couple I picked up on many of the subtle details this time that helps to further explain why they are damaged souls and why their turbulent relationship might be the healthiest thing for them

    6 stars SUEEEEEE 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 heroineThe story is told from the perspective of Eva Hammel a 24 year old girl who comes from money but wants to make it on her own in the world She chooses to start at the bottom and work her way to the top and gets a job in an advertising agency where she meets the guy who owns the company she works for and pretty much everything in NYC Gideon Cross and its just an instant connection between then Sparks fly from the first glance And things go from there Gideon Cross is just pure perfection in my eyes He is tortured passionate controlling but isn't afraid to admit he fcked up tender possessive gorgeous absolutely and utterly in LOVE with his girl 3 3 Gah my heart is bursting here 3 He's so messed up but he's trying his absolute best to be everything his girl needs him to be I love how on the outside he's this unobtainable larger than life god but on the inside he's just a man who wants to be loved by his girl Oh Eva He rubbed his cheek against my damp face I must've wished for you so hard and so often you had no choice but to come true What do you want Gideon? I asked softlyHe caught me to him and cupped my cheek in one hand I want to keep feeling the way I feel when I'm with you Just tell me what I have to do And give me some room to screw up I've never done this before There's a learning curve There are a lot of wonderful book couples out there but the thing that made me just LOVE this book was how fuctional Gideon and Eva were Despite both having very messed up pasts and both having their fair share of fck ups they worked through everything functional and passionately in a way that deeply warmed me heart I loved how open and honest they learned to be with each other They both made mistakes but they were understandable mistakes nothing that make me want to throw my Kindle at the wall nothing where I couldn't understand the reaction they had and they always talked everything through after I loved how their love for each other made them stronger than any problems that came their way It was so refreshing and heart warming This relationship is going to be a lot of work Gideon I warned himI'm not afraid of work He was touching me restlessly his hands sliding over my thighs and buttocks as if caressing my bare skin was as necessary to him as breathing I'm only afraid of losing youI pressed my cheek to his We completed each other Even now as his hands roamed possessively over me I felt a thawing in my soul the desperate relief of being held finally by the man who understood and satisfied my deepest most intimate desires I loved how neither of them were man whores or virgins before meeting each other Not that I have a problem with either one But it was refreshing and realistic that they had both been in a normal amount of relationships for a couple of mid twenty year oldsI also LOVED the side characters Eva's boss Mark and his partner Steven were delightful and fun Her bi sexual room mate and best friend Cary was just so lovable He was the ultimate big brother character with his own set of problems I really really hope he gets a HEA He so deserves one We don't get to see much of his past but you can tell its really heart breaking I loved how he knew Eva so well he just knew when something was wrong just by looking at her I want there to be happily ever afters for the fcked up crowd Show me the way Eva honey Make me believe Cary And did I mention how utterly HOT this book was?? I swear I was fanning myself from the moment they met which was pretty much right at the beginning till the very last pageFor those of you wondering about the connection between this book and Fifty Shades I'd say they have about as much in common as Fifty Shades does with Twilight Sure the basics are similar mega billionaire hero who is possessive of his girl wait no that's it actually The BDSM element is utterly UNlike Fifty There is no contract or anything like that and it only comes up about 70% of the way through the book and only briefly at that Its about the sexual control but even then its not about the kinky fckery the same way that Fifty was But don't let that deter you this book is HOT SEXY deeply emotional and a serious page turner I found this book deeply emotional than Fifty and I loved Gideon even than Christian which is saying a lot cuz all of the Fifty books are on my 6 star list You forget who submits Eva” he said gruffly “I’ve given up control for you I’ve bent and adjusted for you I’ll do anything to keep you and make you happy But I can’t be tamed or topped Don’t mistake indulgence for weakness” and gah the library scene dies seriously HOTTTTT I just loved seeing these two people from such tortured and broken pasts coming together finding peace in each other making things work its a beautiful story “I love you Gideon”“God” He looked at me with something that resembled disgust Whether it was directed at me or himself I didn’t know “How can you say that?”“Because it’s the truth”“You just see this”—he gestured at himself with a wave of his hand “You’re not seeing the fucked up broken mess inside”I inhaled sharply “You can say that to me? When you know I’m fucked up and broken too?” The ending was in a perfect place Happy resolved but leaving me biting my nails waiting for October to pleeeeease get here faster We'll never be over Eva Gideon This is a MUST read I’m buying it in hard copy to put on my favorites shelf and know for sure that I’ll be rereading it many times swoonCASTING For of my reviews come visit join

NoShe runsAgainGideon runs after her and apologizes againThis goes on again and again and againAt one point I wanted to shout at the characters GROW UP But really their idiocy crosses the normal level the night Eva tells Gideon about the sexual abuse she had to endure when she was a childThen she becomes upset to see pity and horror in his eyesnot lust Reallyshe has just told the man who may not recognize it yet but in reality loves her fiercelythat she had been a victim of sexual abuse for 4 years and what was he supposed to do???Jump her Well to stop her from leavingGideon does exactly thatStillat night when Gideon has another of his terrifyingsomehow sexually related nightmareit might be that he too was a victim of sexual abuseEva asks him to tell her about thatHe tries to turn the topic andshe leavesThis time Gideon lets her goEva too does not approach himFirstshe thinks to herselffeeling hurt He does not want to share his past with meWellthat's a deal breaker for me When Gideon does not approach hershe thinksgetting veryvery hurt Maybe he does not want me because of MY PASTGideon thinks She must be disgusted because of that violentsexual nightmareShe has not tried to approach meI'll try and let her goReally It became ridiculous after sometimeWell it goes on and on and on like thisone amazingly stupid plot after another So the basic storyline of the book is Something occurs to f up their relationshipEva runsGideon comes after her and they have sex and make up and then something else occursEva runsBy the end I was literally banging my headWell that's allfor now

    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 EL 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 because someone should start writing literary erotica againIt was certainly gratifying to discover that at least this heroine wasn't a 22 year old virgin who'd never masturbated However like FSOG it casts improbably young people in improbably mature situations Eva is 22 a recent graduate who has landed a job at an ad agency in Manhattan with little to recommend her She lives in an apartment with a wine fridge and a bi sexual roommate who tucks bottles of Cristal on ice for her as a favour Gideon Cross is a 28 year old billionaire who seems to own half of ManhattanI have to admit to being puzzled by the choice of age of the characters both in this novel and in 50 Shades until I realized that there is no way the litany of contrived conflicts in the plot would work with even marginally mature grown ups It takes characters with hair trigger reactions non existent impulse control and an expectation that your lover comes to you without a past to make the plot move forward Just like 50 Shades the story jerks spasmodically along from emo moment to sex scene to emo moment like pawns doggedly inching their way across a chessboard of adolescent over reactions The sex is interestingly written It's a rather strange hybrid between female focused sex acts and the sort of cliché ridden over explicit dialogue that people who learn from porn sites call 'dirty talk' He's either going down on her repeatedly or gasping out lovelorn remarks like 'your cunt's so tight' Well she's 22 I'm not sure how this goes down with the mommy consumers of mommy porn Does it remind them to redouble their kegel exercise efforts or do they resign themselves to saving their pennies for a vaginoplasty?Still I'm unsure whether it's the sex that is supposed to get you off or the conspicuous consumption The book is littered with brand names An ever present materialism thrums like drone through the whole novel and is eerily reminiscent of Bret Easton Ellis's psychopaths obsession with brand names It is so ubiuitous I have to wonder if the 'kink' hiding in this story isn't actually subliminal 1% fetishism Except of course the 1% doesn't refer to everything by brand name It's the wannabe 1% who do that or psychopathsAlong with the consumerism is an unvarying textual obeisance to the buff ripped perfect body No one in this novel has any flaws No one is plump no one is bony no one has acne no one has visible scars No one has a single physical shortcoming It's a world of Calvin Klein ad models toned and photogenicly sheened in odorless sweat fucking on the immaculately decorated set of a feature piece for VogueTheir perfect bodies might be read as an ironic juxtaposition to their myriad emotional scars But probably not It has the heavy taint of soap opera about it the baseless instant jealousies that are conveniently forged into both signs of inner damage and smoldering romantic love There is a supporting cast of the mildly villainous and the long sufferingly loyal to provide that friction catty female rivals and overly affectionate gay friends Puppets to adorn the rococo melodramaDon't mistake me There is actually a very compelling and rather serious plot beneath the glutinous and facile emo soupview spoiler Two people both of whom have suffered from appalling child abuse who have built individually intricate strategies for survival and suppression of its long term effects hide spoiler

    Fell short of my expectationsI 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 ever came alive I never felt that the book explained what made Eva so different in Gideon's eyes or why he had an immediate obsession with her They used sex instead of talking through their horrific issues and it seemed to fix everything and nothing at the same time I don't mind a steamy read but I have to be emotionally connected to a story in order to appreciate it and with this book I just wasn't I know there is a seuel which obviously will explain of Gideon's character but I just hate finishing an entire book feeling as though I don't know one of the lead characters Book Stats ▪ GenreCategory Erotica▪ Steam Caliber Maximum steam▪ Romance Fairly weak and unconvincing Insta lust▪ Characters Tormented and damaged Alpha hero▪ Plot Skimmed the surface of an in depth storyline▪ Writing Well written and expressive ▪ POV First person Heroine▪ Cliffhanger Yes Left open for story ▪ Next Installment Follow upcontinues

    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 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 based solely on sex but their connection is so powerful that they are overwhelmed with the need to be with one another Most times their dates rendezvous encounterswhatever result in some very primal raw sex The two of them are insatiable especially Gideon who takes it to a level with Eva that leaves her completely undone The scenes are uite vivid and the feelings they exudewell WOW and WOW and WOW again Gideon is all about giving pleasure and then saving his for last I was EXHAUSTED The misting fan could not compete with his exuberant bouts of sex yet none of this ever felt dirty but necessary for the two of them Much of this has to do with the fact that Eva and Gideon are tormented from past trauma and this is a form of healing for them Eva’s confides in Gideon and he is slowly opening himself up to herSo as the book came to its conclusion the story of Eva and Gideon did not I was satisfied enough that I could leave them for a while but I need to know how this all plays out and that my friends will remain to be seenhopefully in October In the meantimeI can't recommend this book enough you will run the gambit of emotions while you join Eva and Gideon on their uest to find themselves and each other This is my GideonI know he doesn't have blue eyes but the restahhhh Just my thoughts on this matterMuch has been made about the comparison of Bared to You and Fifty Shades of Grey and frankly I don’t see it In any romance and sub genre there are always going to be similarities it can’t be helped but the direction the story takes the personality of the characters how they are presented and of course the writing is what makes each of them uniue I enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey but I loved Bared to You There is no doubt that EL James is a gifted author but Sylvia Day is a talented skilled writer and has written an exceptional book So if I had to choose between the twoBared to Youwithout a doubt is my pick Why? Because it's 50 times BETTER Crossfire by Brandon Flowershttpwwwyoutubecomwatch?vaD4npn

    What to say? HmBared to you centers around Eva Tramell a twenty four year old woman who is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse Eva finds it extremely hard at times to overcome this past but she is drawn to young billionaire Gideon Cross as soon as she meets him It is later revealed in the book that Gideon is also a childhood sexual abuse survivor The two must find a way to heal each other in order to move on from their pasts and establish a healthy romantic relationshipI used to love reading books about hot men who are playboys but if I'm being honest it now bores me because this kind of story is being repeated all the timeI've read 'This Man' 'Up in the Air' and 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and most of the concept in these booksseries is sex and I think after reading this book twice I've had enough of reading erotica I've actually had enough Like I want something different for once Not the same thing being repeated multiple freaking times Can you tell I'm frustrated with this?In this book when I saw that a sex scene was coming up I skipped all the pages and sighed to myself saying 'Yup another one' Surely I'm not the only one who did this?And with this seriesit's like never ending? I thought after Entwined with youit was the end but I guess notbut sigh I don't know anyThe men in these series really have a problem like how many times do you need to get laidI don't know maybe I'm just not in the mood to read this kind of genre any
