Why I read it: I picked this one up on NetGalley. To be honest, the blurb didn't sell me - it was kind of confusing and didn't tell me what I wanted to know but I've read and enjoyed Sylvia Day before so I decided to give it a whirl.
What it's about: Because I thought the blurb wasn't very helpful, I'm not going to copy and paste this one - so I'll give you my own. Eva Trammell (24) moves to New York with her gay BFF Cary from California to pursue a career in advertising. She is the stepdaughter of a very rich man and so has a lovely apartment (which she shares with Cary) but has insisted on an entry level job which she obtained without his help. She works at the Crossfire Building and there she (literally) runs into Gideon Cross, a 28 year old bazillionaire. There is instant connection. Instant and sizzling lust. But, both Eva and Gideon have past traumas which come back to haunt them - can they have a successful relationship? Are they soul mates or are they destined to flash, crash and burn?
What worked for me (and what didn't): With all the hype about Fifty Shades of Grey (50SOG) around the place, it is hard not to make a comparison between it and Bared To You. I havent' read 50SOG and I don't plan to. But, from what I've read about it, I think that Bared To You is what 50SOG could have been, maybe aspired to be (if it had left out many fanfic conventions and had some savvy editing)^. Like 50SOG, there is a bit of the Harlequin Presents (HP) about this story.
