Bared to You
Bared to You: A Crossfire Novel | Sylvia Day
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..."When it comes to brewing up scorchingly hot sexual chemistry, Day has few literary rivals." -- Booklist

Ugh. I really disliked this one. I enjoyed it at first, but the more I read, the more I rolled my eyes. The conflict was lame and resolved too quickly. The sex scenes were cringy and at the most inappropriate moments (for example *immediately* following her confession of horrible childhood sexual abuse). I'm pretty disappointed in this one.

And now for a little smut. I've heard this series is great!

brit91 I really enjoyed this series!😍📚 it's one of my favorites!! 5mo
ThalassaLuna @brit91 I'm really enjoying it so far! Very reminiscent of 50 shades without all the niave, hopeless, virginal bimbo stuff. 5mo
brit91 @ThalassaLuna yes I agree I thought it was simpler too 50 shades but I think I like this series better than 50 shades! But I love 50 shades too! 5mo
ThalassaLuna @brit91 same. I really loved 50 shades. This one is refreshing though. At least Eva is putting up some resistance so far. Not just swooning helplessly into his arms. Haha 5mo

I enjoyed this book. Romance, lust and a little bit of creepy. Sometimes I found myself asking the main female chatacter what she was doing.

Day 20: Favorite romance book

Bared to You is the first book in the Crossfire novels written by Sylvia Day. There are a lot of similarities between this series and the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, but these books are so much better. Eva and Gideon are inseparable no matter what they go through and that kind of passion and love is somewhat rare now. It's refreshing, seriously steamy, and kind of kinky. 😉

For those who saw my post about swapping recs with a co-worker and not loving the book that she picked - I squeezed in a quick re-read of *my* pick to make sure I wasn't losing my mind. I've read this book many times over the years and always love it! Complex characters that leap off the page and have off-the-charts chemistry. So much 🔥

If you've ever been intrigued by 50 Shades but were turned off by the bad writing, try this instead! #romantsy

So, I like me some romance. I read this a while back and now I‘ve caught the romance fiction bug again but don‘t know where to start? What are some steamy contemporary novels, similar to this, that contain no BDSM? #recommendations please!

Well,let‘s see. 🤔I liked that the characters were very flawed, despite being perfect on the outside. And the story has more layers than your usual romance novel. Even with this, the main characters couldn‘t really grab my interest like they should have. I mostly finished it because I wanted to see what the hype was about. It was ok, but just didn‘t really do it for me 😐 I doubt I would reread or even finish the rest of the series...

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I liked this series much better than Fifty Shades! I barely got through that one! 😆This really isn‘t my type genre so I was really doing a lot of eye rolling!! 🙄 2y
HOTPock3tt @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I really liked 50 shades when I read it!! 🤗😆 LoL. But that was 4 or 5 years ago 🤔 I think I‘m just a little tired of romance novels at this point. I‘ve been reading them since I was a teenager, back when I used to sneak and read my moms harlequin ones! Lmao 🤣 so I think it‘s just getting a little old with me 😐 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @HOTPock3tt hahaha!!! That‘s so funny!! 🤣😂 I‘ve never been a big romance reader 🤔 2y

This series was very good. If you want a way better version of Fifty Shades of Grey, then this series is for you. Gideon Cross is a sexy, dark, broken billionaire that will steal your heart. The series is dark, steamy and a page-turner.

#darkerotica #romantsy #romance

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I totally agree!! I couldn‘t read Fifty Shades, but I really enjoyed these!! 2y
LadyRuthven @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Yes! This series is just so much better. I couldn't stand Fifty Shades, mainly for how it misrepresented BDSM and also because Christian was just awful. And considering the type of romances I like to read, that's really saying something. Haha 2y

julesG It's better than 50 shades. The writing is better. 2y
MinDea 1983 here too! 🙋 2y
HOTPock3tt Wow now I‘m REALLY looking forward to it! 😵I also didn‘t think the writing in 50 shades was all that good 😐 (it just had a lot of fun romantic scenes) so I‘m sure I‘ll love one that‘s actually well written ☺️ 2y

Finally have my room coming together after my move. This is one angle of my room and one of my shelves with all my favourite books/ series, my Saje diffuser, Essie nail polishes and my slow growing Pop Vinyl collection.

Needed some light reading so I picked this up. Its ok. Feels like its trying to be 50 shades of Grey but with two fucked up characters. Also, I think that for their crazy abusive pasts they both seem pretty well adjusted. Eva especially has some amazing self insight which I find hard to believe. That being said.... I AM reading the second book because it is very light reading and thats what I need at the moment.

I am completely obsessed with Gideon Cross. Completely. Obsessed. Sylvia Day must have flames shooting from her fingertips when she writes the Crossfire Series. #OSRBC #romantsy

TapperToo Yes it is. :) 3y
Lauracaress The whole series just gets better and better! Amazing x 3y

the story started out a tad creepy, the book does have some racy scenes so if you're not into that then don't read it, but if you do then this would be a great book to read! It's sexy and has an air of mystery and drama! This book has it all! Love it!
