…..Bared to you….

 The awesome novel, 50 Shades of Grey is probably one of the most read novel of the year and like some other 50million plus readers, I also feel in-love with the Christian Grey character. Let’s put aside the Dominant/Submissive part of the novel, Christian Grey is indeed on hell of a dude. Wow…..let me stop before I get all caught up writing about Christian Grey……After reading the trilogy, I was in deer need of a fix. A novel with similar context or basically a good read to distract me from calling myself Mrs. Grey. I decided to do what am sure at least 10million people in my shoes did, I googled ‘what to read after 50 Shades of Grey,’ and I found this awesome book titled, Bared to you. 10 out of 15 websites recommended this novel as the 2nd must read book to read after 50 Shades, the 1st was the Sleeping Beauty Series.

Without reading the reviews, I went on to download it off iTunes. It took me 3days and 8hours to finish it and guess what…….Its a trilogy. The next book in the series is Reflected in you and the Last, Deeper into you

It written by an American Author Sylvia Day and based on the life of Gideon Cross and Eva.

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…

Initially I couldn’t help but compare the first few pages to 50 Shades of Grey, It was about a young billionaire with a trouble past and wasn’t a ‘flower and chocolates’ kinda guy. Just like Fifty Shades, as Eva stumbles into Gideon’s office all he could think about was how to get ‘on top of her.’ However as opposed to 50 shades being like a fairy tale, girl meet boy kinda novel, Bared to you is more believable, well except the fact that Gideon Cross is 28. Both Characters, including Cray have a scared past. However, I gets kind of annoying with Eva’s repeat running away attitude. I must say for the kind of Character Gideon was made to portray in the novel, he seems to have a lot of patience for Eva’s runway attitude. Though this novel has quite a bit of sexual references, thankfully it has no S&M contents and we wont be victimized for reading another porno-novel. It has just enough x-rated mentions to make you blush and not feel abnormal for curling up and blushing at its contents.

My not so favourite parts of the novel…..

– I don’t like the name Gideon….the Cross part is Sexy but the Gideon sounds odd. Would have preferred a name like Alex or Matthew.

– Once again, the male lead character, Gideon Cross is a 28year old billionaire. To be honest, what are the odds of finding a hot, young billionaire. O well I guess, he  shall continue to be a pigment of my imagination, right next to Christian Grey.

One more thing am excited about word on the street has it that there maybe a movie for bared to you. I stumbled on this youtube casting video for the movie…….seems like someone is a whole lot more excited than I am……Yay!!!!

I must admit, I love the choice of characters. Seems just perfect. I hope Sylvia does get a movie deal. Since the 50 Shades trilogy , this is clearly the most amazing, interesting book I have ever read. Am about to start reading the second series and the 3rd is scheduled to be released before the end of this year.

I also stumbled on this list…..
