Book Review: Bared To You by Sylvia Day


Bared to You
(Crossfire Series, #1)
By Sylvia Day

Synopsis: 

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...

Viviana's Review: 

Absolutely loved this book. The characters were passionate, honest, "real", strong and had faults. Both the Heroine and Hero were individuals with baggage and are still dealing with the results. Loved that the Heroine wasn't annoying or weak (unfortunately, a typical behavior/characteristic in heroine as of late). She was a survivor and took charge of her life, knew what she wanted and stood her ground.
The story is excellently written. I couldn't put it down and read the whole thing in one sitting! Rather, I didn't want to put it down. I wanted to know more about Gideon and Eva as individuals and as a couple. I wanted to see them develop and grow.

Now to the "erotica". Yes, the sex scenes were hot! Hot like "take notes and tell your partner 'see, like that'"! Hot, Steamy and well, WOW! But, they fit within the story! It made sense. It wasn't just thrown out there to fill in a gap nor was it added to fulfill a quota.

Loved Eva's BFF Cary! He's fantastic! Fun, a great friend, sound board, confidant, shoulder to cry and he'll beat the living day lights out of anyone that hurts his "Baby Girl" (Eva). Again, he's "real" and honest and has a matching set of baggage! Hoping to get to know him better in the upcoming books! Or perhaps a book of his own (hint hint)

Overall, great story, great characters and a great read! Highly recommended! Can't wait for the second installment!!

Rating: 4 Stars - Loved It
