Firstly, I cannot compare this awesome listen to FSOG as I haven't yet listened to the raved over book but all I can do is review this one.
This book totally consumed me as it unfolded to tell the heart renching story of two previously sexually abused people slowly learning to trust in each other, letting go of their pasts and eventually love again. I fell in love with Gideon not because he was handsome, filthy rich, successful at everything he did but because he was sooo vulnerable, caring and thoughtful when it came to Eva. He thought his life was just fine and wanted for nothing....... until he met her eyes - then sparks flew and they very quickly turned into embers which ignited into burning hot flames of passion filled pages.
Good plot, great primary and secondary characters and lots of 'hot and heavy' all go into the mix to create a well written and well narrated exceptional listen.
Worth a credit? DEFINATELY, TOTALLY and ABSOLUTELY YES.

I listened to the Fifty Shades trilogy twice back to back. And I loved every second of it. Then I went into an emotional detox and started listening to paranormal romances for a few weeks. Just when I was starting to miss fifty a little, Bared to you came out promising to be a substitute for FSoG. It was not... But I must clarify that I really liked both books. Enough about fifty.
Bared to You is the story of Eva and Gideon, two very beautiful, filthy rich people that fall madly in love. The thing is they are kind of crazy, and not the fun kinda crazy, but the you'll-Need-therapy-the-rest-of-your-life kind of crazy. They have both been victims of sexual abuse when kids and they don't really know how to have a normal happy healthy relationship. The interesting thing is that their sexual abuse made them a little cookoo but did not affect their libido of sexual performance. At. All. Hot chemistry!
Bring in secondary stories about the bi-sexual, also insane but ridiculously gorgeous roommate that Eva has (Cary). Eva's controlling mother and Gideon's very misterious family and you have a story that is very interesting, unpredictable and did I mention HOT!
If you loved fifty and are looking for another version of the story, please note that this is different, more psychological and intense. No BDSM at all.
Now to the merits as an audiobook: this is fifty shades better. Jill Redfield did an amazing job with all the voices. The emotions she brought to the narration were just flawless. Distinct voices for each characters and exellent tones for the love scenes. I was very surprised to see that this is the only audiobook available that she has narrated. I definitely look forward to more books narrated by her.
Can't wait for the next book: Reflected in You...

Only down to half of the book, but I can already say this is something! Love the narrating, love the style and the descriptions... Makes me want to be in New York and find my own Sex God!

Bared to you leaves you wanting to know what is going to happen next. It just wets the appetite leaving you wanting more and will be listening to the next book as soon as I've written this. You want to no what has made them the way they are and if they will make it through. You also feel for the same the people around them especially his sister.
As for Jill Redfield's narration she is exceptional her tones and the little things she adds make it easy to listen and get lost in the story.

Hadn't read the book first so it was just an absolute treat!!!!!!
I have no idea how Sylvia Day has flown under my radar all this time but what an absolute delight to have found her. This is a great story, with characters that just caught me from page one. I cannot wait to read/listen to the entire three books of this trilogy!
And along with that was the perfect narration of Jill Redfield, another first for me and I will be looking for her name again.
Both main characters are so agonizingly flawed, and yet they complete each other, it's not the usual boy meets girl, problem, happy ending ..... oh no its messier than that.
In my top 5 - spend that credit now.

Read after a recommendation from what to read after fifty shades.
Was hoping for better and it provided that.
Enjoyed listening to it and have listened to it again.
Have bought all the books in the series.
