I rely on goodreads as one of the pillars of my "should I buy" tool kit. Katiebabs gave Bared to You a DNF. Of course, Like DA, and most of romland, she wasn't too impressed with Fifty Shades, feeling that the subject had been better written about elsewhere. I bought Bared to You but I'm feeling that stampeded feeling (when EVERYONE recommends a book and I buy it and then just can't get the love). I'm guessing Bared won't come close to appealing to me on the visceral level that Fifty did.

Anyhow, go to goodreads and read Katiebabs for yourself but here's a snippet which gives you a flavour. Must add that Katiebabs is a straight-from-the-hip blogger/reviewer and I've learned tons about YA from her blog!

DNFed half way through. [] Also the writing seems disjointed and stilted at times. Had a hard time following. Seems way too much like Fifty Shades and makes me think the author jumped on the Fifty Shades bandwagon.
