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...

Oh. My. Freaking. God. 
Fuck, this book is absolutely amazing. Really. I've started reading it because I've found out it's similar to Fifty Shades, but hell, it's so NOT. It's even better ;) And no, I won't tell you how many bookmarks I have in this book now :P

This book makes you want to scream to God "Thank you for creating women who can write utterly-amazingly-incredible romance. And well, sex." A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. And another thing. I don't have a boyfriend - but this book, hell, I wouldn't need one for the rest of my life if I had this book in my purse. YES, it's that good ;)

This book describes the story of Eva. She's only 24 but all the hell broke loose when she was only 10. Fucking 10. Damn some things people would rather not know. My heart broke for her. I will never understand how some people can think they can take someone's freedom or will away just because they feel like it. I hate it. Abuse it's bad, but sexual abuse in my opinion is even worse. 

She is fucked up. And then there is Gideon, who is, well, fucked up as well. As an almost psychologist I've found it so intrigue to read about theirs mechanisms of coping with life. The author really knows something about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Abuse Disorders and I've loved it!

Their relationship. OMG. The writing was pure awesomeness. And the hot scenes were incredible. This I think is the best Adult book I've read so far. Bared to you really is so good and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoy good romance and incredible hot sex scenes ;)  Because this book won't disappoint you.

I'd known this was coming - the unraveling of circumstances too good to be true. Contentment and happiness didn't exist in my life for more than a few moments at a time, and they were really only illusionary. There was always something hidden. Lying in wait to spring up and ruin everything.

And yet I understood the alienation of being around others who couldn't really see you or chose not to. I'd felt the self-loathing that came with being fraud, portraying an image of what you wished you could be but weren't. I'd lived with the fear that the people you loved might turn away from you if they ever got to know the true person hidden inside.

I've heard lots of good things about this one - and Sylvia Day in general - but I've never been much of an erotica fan.

Awesome review, Nea! You made me chuckle when you said the part about never needing a boyfriend for the rest of your life as long as you had this book in your purse. Haha! I'll definitely have to check this book out. Thanks for sharing! =D
