He was 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 worlds...and desires.
The bonds of his love transformed me, even as I prayed that the torment of our pasts didn't tear us apart...

The main character, Eva, has an abusive and troubled past that she is trying to overcome. She counts on work, friends, and supportive family members to keep her life steady and safe. Gideon Cross is the opposite of steady and safe. He crashes (literally) into Eva’s world and the two of them start throwing off sparks that light up the sky.
Bared to You is a smart, sexy, erotic thrill ride. Eva’s character is down-to-earth and likeable. Gideon, while not necessarily being “likeable” right off the bat, does elicit feelings of empathy and leaves the reader desperate to learn more about his past. Did I mention he was hot? He leaps off the page as a sexy, driven, intelligent man with his own dark past. And his love for Eva knows no bounds.
Can the undeniable passion that Eva and Gideon feel transform into something real and lasting? Can, Gideon, who comes with his own trunk full of baggage be a positive and stable fixture in Eva’s life? And can two self-described dysfunctional people have a normal, healthy relationship? It isn’t an easy path, but fans of the HEA need to hang on for the ride as these two beautiful, damaged and passionate people fight for the love they both deserve.
