Bared to You (A Crossfire Novel) by Sylvia Day (@SylDay)

Excerpt from Amazon:

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 worlds…and desires.

The bonds of his love transformed me, even as I prayed that the torment of our pasts didn’t tear us apart…

 Scorching, red hot and surpasses all my expectations.  I have no problems reading what a lot of my readers call “mommy porn”.  Most of it is what I call romance with a little spice.  When I want harder and edgier, I read things like 10 Nights by Michelle Hughes and Karl Jones.  I honestly thought that was what I was getting when I delved into the world of Gideon Cross.  Boy, was I wrong…


Eva knew from the moment that she sprawled on her ass in front of Gideon Cross that there was something dangerous about him.  Passion and intensity were etched into him like part of his DNA.  It sang and called to her on an intimate level that was hotter then anything she had ever known. 


Self-preservation tells her to stay far away from him because she knows that she is asking for trouble.  Gideon knows what he wants and as a very successful billionaire, he has no trouble getting it.  As a very controlling man, he finds it nearly impossible to give up control but for her he is willing to try.


This is so different from the other stories about virgins jumping into domination games with rich men.  This story shows two very flawed souls struggling to come together against all odds.  Eva has been devestated and brutalized and needs the control that Gideon can give her but she is scared to let him close.  Gideon needs the soothing balm that Eva can provide but can’t release the iron grip he has on his emotions.  These two don’t have a smooth ride and I am glad to see a story that has some real edge to it and issues that people face on a normal day in relationships. 


Ms. Day has managed to create a story that reaches in and rips out all your predetermined ideas and piece them back together into a raw love story that will leave you craving more.
