    "Bared 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 "New York Times" and "USA Today" bestselling author of over a dozen novels written across multiple sub-genres - contemporary, fantasy, historical, futuristic, science fiction, romantic suspense, paranormal romance, and urban fantasy - under multiple pen names: three! A wife and mother of two, she is a former Russian linguist for the U.S. Army Military Intelligence. "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 Reviwed).
