Bared to You by Sylvia Day

This is a sophisticated, provocative, titillating, highly erotic,
sexually driven read and is extremely well done. The title fits the book in
more 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,
encounters…whatever, 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 quite vivid, and the feelings they exude…well
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 her.

So, 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
seen…hopefully in October! In the meantime…I can’t recommend this book
enough, you will run the gambit of emotions while you join Eva and Gideon on
their quest to find themselves and each other.

This is my Gideon…I know he doesn’t have blue eyes, but the

Just my thoughts on this matter!

Much 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 unique. 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 two…Bared to You…without
a doubt is my pick!! Why? Because it’s 50 times BETTER!

Point taken! I just feel that there are so many books within a particular sub-genre that are similar, that it was unfair to target Ms. Days book as some people did, hence my afterthought on the books. I would attribute it to the popularity of 50 Shades and BtY coming on the heels of that book. So many books are released with similar themes, but the writing is what sets them apart…IMO, BtY was an exceptional book!
