Blog Tour & Giveaway: Georgia Cates' "Indulge."
Beau Emerson is no gentleman.
Those hazel eyes.
That filthy mouth.
That greedy, hard body.
It all equates to one thing. Irresistible.
One look and I know he’ll bruise my lips and scar my knees. He’ll give me the best nine days of my life while ruining me in the most beautiful way imaginable. And I’ll let him because he has the power to talk me into anything.
Except one thing.
I have no choice. The things I desire from him will destroy me in the end. I want more than he’s capable of giving––something true and beautiful.
He can never know how much of me belongs to him. Too much is at stake.
Shh … don’t tell him he’s my everything.
My name is Anna James Bennett. And this is our story.
I followed my heart and it led me back to her. Once my vanilla girl.
Now, my forever girl. Our true and beautiful.
I thoroughly enjoyed "Indulge" and I was quite surprised when I realised that it was a standalone. In one breath, I was saddened that I was only going to get one book filled with the scrumptious Beau, but in the next breath, I was somewhat relived to know that I was going to get the whole story in one go. This book was a sexy romance with a few curve balls thrown in along the way. I loved reading Anna James and Beau's story and at times it was hard to put my kindle down. Each time that I did, I found myself itching to return to the story.
In the first half of the book, I really liked Anna James. She was funny, warm and easy to connect with. Things had been a little rough for her, so she was desperately in need of some happiness in her life, a chance to just let go and enjoy herself. I felt sorry for what had previously happened to her and I couldn't wait for something exciting to turn all of that around. She deserved something wonderful to turn her world upside down.
Beau Emerson makes me feel like a woman. A desired woman. His words.
The way he looks at me. His body language. Everything he does is a huge turn-on.
Beau intrigued me from the very beginning, Yes, he was a sexy, alpha male and he acted so lovely towards Anna James, but I didn't think he could be trusted with Anna James' heart. I thought that he was only after one thing from her and although she seriously needed some action in the sex department, I really didn't think that he was the man for her. I was positive that she was going to be even more damaged than she already was. Even though Beau had heartbreak written all over him, I knew how difficult he would be to resist. With his gorgeous looks, his charming manner and his kinky desires, Anna James was tempted to ignore what her brain was telling her and follow her heart.
"This isn't love. Nor is it true and beautiful. But I want it more than my next breath."
The story really hotted up as Anna James and Beau explored their infatuation with each other. They shared a ton of erotic experiences together that resulted in me being green with envy. Beau knew exactly what he was doing in the bedroom. He was an expert in knowing exactly what to do to make Anna James throw away her concerns and dive into his bed. She had definitely found someone to make her happy, if only for a short time. Everything was going fantastically between the couple and I couldn't help but get excited for Anna James. They made a fabulous couple who shared a cracking sense of humour. Some of their banter made me chuckle. I can't remember laughing as much in other books by this author, I loved reading the brilliant one-liners that were added to the story.
Together Beau and I are the equivalent of a flame meeting gasoline.
We burn so hot it's impossible to be extinguished.
But with a scorching fire, someone always gets burned. I can't let it be me.
So there I was loving how everything was progressing in Anna James and Beau's world, that was until the first twist in the story happened and I no longer felt excited, instead I felt sad because of the what was happening between Anna James and Beau. As the story continued, I became upset with the direction that the story took and my feelings toward Anna James and Beau had completely changed. I was feeling angry towards Anna James and upset with what she was doing and my heart was breaking for Beau. Because the last few chapters switched from Anna James' POV to Beau's, I got to understand how much the poor guy was hurting and I just wanted to jump into the story to comfort him and also give Anna James a good shake to make her see sense.
Ours hasn't been a love story, as I thought. It's a fucking tragedy."
If you looking for a sexy story with a swoonworthy ending or the ideal book to read on the beach with a cocktail in your hand "Indulge" would be the perfect book.
A Strange, powerful force took hold of me.
Its root weaving itself around my heart, body, and soul.
And there it grew because she kissed my heart awake when her soul whispered to mine.
I rate Anna James and Beau's story ❤️❤️❤️❤️
