This review is from: Bared to You (Crossfire, Book 1) (Paperback)
Well i was looking forward to this book after reading a review claiming it was 'what 50 shade of Grey could have been'. Needless to say i was sorely let down. It blatantly copies 50 Shades, the 2 main characters meet and she falls over. Even the 2 male leads have the same initials, Christain Grey and Gideon Class, reversed initials but still. Gideon suffered terrible trauma as a child, as did Christian, Gideon is a rich powerful businessman like Christian. Neither of the female lead characters are secure, both are jealous of the male's attractiveness to other women, both have one other female they feel threatened by.
It tries too hard to be 50 Shades and fails abysmally. The characters are shallow and written terribly, the reader feels no empathy or conenction to them unlike in 50 Shades, and we don't feel like we get to know them very well. The sex scenes are somehow explicit without being erotic, 50 Shades was a huge turn on, Bared to you is not in the slightest.
If you're going to copy anything you have to do it better than the original, this doesn't even come close to how good of a read 50 Shades of grey is.
