From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day comes the first novel in the Crossfire series—a 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 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...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I am obsessed with this series. It's got a little 50 Shades feel to it, but SO much better. I felt SO many emotions while reading this novel, it's a crazy roller coaster ride and I love it. Defs a page turner :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was ok... This is incredibly similar to 50 Shades although Sylvia Day's writing style is better in my opinion. The story was just ok. I feel as though these types of novels quickly jump into a relationship rather than having the excitement build. Everything happens so fast that the sexual tension is missing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from loved this I read this book because I heard it was very similar to 50 Shades of Grey and not knowing what to expect, but boy oh boy did I love this book. There is so much more sex and emotions with up and downs in this relationship which makes it a joy to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from loved it I enjoyed this book a lot. I found that this book had a better story to it than the 50 shades trilogy. Eva & Gideon's characters were a little more in depth, with both of their back histories. My only wish was that the books came out closer together. Definite recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dreams come true Great read! Alot of people are comparing this to Fifty Shades but I did find it MUCH MUCH better. The plot is pretty similar (rich, hot guy wanted to do some dirty deeds) but I found it a bit more believable. Day is a pretty good writer, never getting too lost in long descriptive sentences but giving the audience exactly enough information needed to paint the picture with their imagination.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really enjoyed this1 I went in to this book, expecting another Fifty Shades kind of book (what can I say? I was in a mood haha), but I was pleasantly surprised. If you enjoyed Fifty Shades, I think you'll really enjoy this read. And the writing in Bared to You is so much better than in Fifty Shades!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just love it When i bought Bared to you, I thought it would be another book that I would take months to read as not a lot of writer's can catch my attention and make me read page for page. But when i started reading Sylvia Day she had me hooked and I just had to read more. Gideon Cross in the book to me is the kind of man that you love him but hate him all at the same time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed review It's taking a while to get into I'm finding it dry tbh but we will see
Date published: 2016-11-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I was expecting Possible spoilers ahead, I don't go in detail but you'll understand the overall story! When I first purchased the book I had high hopes that this story between Eva and Gideon was going to surprise me and sweep me off into a world of wanting a relationship similar to theirs and quite honestly, I couldn't have been more let down. I have previously read the "Fifty Shades of Grey" series by E.L. James and had mixed emotions about it. At first I loved it but once I took a step back from it I realized just how messed up their "love" story really was. I had such high hopes that Eva and Gideon's story would not leave me feeling the same. The novel lacked sexual tension. They were together so quickly that I hadn't had time to realize what was actually happening before they were both getting it on in various places. Both main characters had experienced traumatizing events in their past that had shaped them into who they were, which is appreciated, not everyone can be perfect, but I felt that at the end of the novel, after finding out Eva's mental issues, I didn't feel excited and intrigued to read the second novel in this series to possibly find out more about Gideon. Day left the novel in a place where I was quite content to close the book and say "that's all I need to know about Eva and Gideon". I'm disappointed that I didn't feel a stronger connection with either characters that would've pushed me to continue reading. I must admit though that the writing was a heck of a lot better than the Fifty Shades series but unfortunately unlike that series, I didn't finish this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay, but tired of dysfunction I would have enjoyed more sexual tension build up before jumping into the characters talking about "fucking" and sex so early. Then I got tired of the constant get mad and leave dysfunctional relationship issue. It would be nice to have a build up of romance and sexual tension without SO much if the same issue over and over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must read! This series of books is a must read. You won't be able to put them down! Hot, steamy and a plot so thick you might want to fill your prescription for valium before you read them! Can't wait for the final book in this series!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good I'm hovering between a 3 and a 4 out of 5. This has similar scenes to the book "that-shall-not-be-named" but the writing is so much better. There's also a bit more depth to it. What annoyed me the most was the emotional angst and the back and forth, on and off again relationship Eva and Gideon shared. They're both traumatized by theirs pasts and we do find out the past of one, but not the other and that bothered me. I found their fights to be so over the top and downright ridiculous. Many times I felt that Eva was making something into nothing, while Gideon had no barriers for privacy whatsoever. I would be beyond pissed if he pulled stuff like that on me. I also couldn't fathom why Eva had to explain how beautiful every character she knows. We get it, everyone is a Barbie and Ken doll in your fictional world.. It doesn't have to be repeated. I found Gideon to be positively overbearing, controlling and super possessive. He had his sweet moments though. His physical description made me imagine Henry Cavill the entire time,so that was fun. As for Eva, I had no idea why she felt like she wasn't worthy of Gideon. She would dismiss her worth all the time and it bothered me so much. I liked Cary in the beginning but after what he did to his love, I started to detest him. And what's up with his "baby girl" nickname? It's just as annoying as "Inner Goddess." Overall, I say pick it up for the steamy sexy scenes, but lack of character development and a page turning story eventually made me feel like it wasn't finished. Hopefully these are fixed in the sequel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I thought the story was good, but I didn't love it as much as 50shades. Plot line was good, those steamy love scenes weren't written all that well. I didn't find them sexy at all. Really just a big, fat copy cat of 50 Shades of Grey!!
