    Indulge in simmering sexual chemistry, off-the-cuff dialogue that will make you laugh out loud, and a plot that will make your fingernails curl into your ereader with the drama. I loved Anna James Bennett's humor and real, girl-next-door personality — it was a fantastic match for Beau Emerson’s more complicated hero.

After all, what's not to like about a polyamorous, sex freak and a vanilla girl hooking up at a hedonistic resort in amazing Jamaica where anything goes? I think the story just needed some time to build, to lay the ground work and for you to see the relationship that is developing between the two main characters. Maybe there is too much focus on the hotel and the activities? But just be patient and wait for it because it really takes off in the second half especially when we get Beau's POV. There's lots of yummy drama but there's also a lot of sweetness and I loved seeing Beau put himself out there. And there is definitely plenty of steam but I think my favorite thing is the romance. When Beau calls Anna "Peach", I just melt. There were some funny moments as well. It was great when Beau went to the book signing! I can totally see him being asked those questions. And some of the scenes between him and Preston were great, if not, a bit awkward. I was a bit taken back at Anna's behavior especially after what had happened to her. I just didn't think she would go there. I enjoyed Anna's best friend, Meredith, and her husband, Grayson. They had their own drama which was intriguing. I almost wanted a story about them! Beau's family is wonderful. I loved Ashlyn and the bunny! And I think that GC could even write some more books about Beau's brothers! The epilogue was really sweet and funny but I loved how everything worked out. This is a standalone for now but like I said, Beau's brothers are pretty yummy and I wouldn't mind some books about them! Favorite quote: ♥ "Because when I'm with her, the only place I want to be is closer." ♦ BR w/Melissa!

Do you know those stories about the sweet, normal, innocent-ish, girl next door type of heroine who meets an alpha type dude with “panty melting smile”, “washboard abs” and a “ domineering attitude”? Yeah? Ok, now add to his description a penchant for kink and a non-traditional dating life (three way relationships, swinging, that type of thing, polyamory blah blah.. just throw in a bit of everything) ... Cool, now that you get the picture, you know where this is going. She isn't into his lifestyle but she gets diagnosed with BBS - Betraying Body Syndrome (you know, that all too common disease where her nether regions are putting her brain out of commission?!) and well.. she changes who she is and what her limits are because duh... Orgasms! EXCEPT..... That does NOT happen in this book!! For once in the history of romance books.. she knows her limits, her body, and what she wants, she's not judgemental or anything.. she's just as secure as him on what her wishes are when it comes to her sex and love life! I freaking loved it!!! All those romance books out there that portray this kind of situation make it seem like any girl, if given the right hot stud, will turn into some sex vixen and lose all her inhibitions and feel "liberated" AF and lead an alternative lifestyle because DUH --- LOVE.... YEAH.. I call BULLSHIT on that! I mean, as much as HIS lifestyle is HIS choice and he loves it, HER lifestyle is HER choice and she loves it! Why is she the one to always bend HER rules for love. I mean look, in the real world, its not that easy to become someone else overnight... I mean, sure you can discover stuff and love it and blah blah its your new thing.. but more times than not it ends up being an experience NOT a lifelong type of situation just saying... I think it's absurd to read about a heroine who has only had missionary in her whole life turn into a sex goddess and enjoy everything from public sex, bdsm, swinging and threesomes I mean that’s just kind of disgusting if you think about it and NOT because of those acts but because there is an inherent pressure that we as readers overlook. It is more than obvious she does does things to please her partner and gets used to it. The fact that she achieves multiple orgasms does not somehow validate that she is into it 100%. I needed ONE book where he leaves HIS lifestyle because of LOVE for HER and not the other way around!! Here we have him fall for her so hard that he leaves the lifestyle behind. And I’m here for it. Love works both ways and the need to compromise and please someone does too.. but everyone has certain boundaries they can’t cross for anyone. Think about it: if you change so much and do things that repulsed you your whole life just because you’re in love, you lose yourself.. what makes you inherently you. And if he fell for you he wouldn’t want you to feel that way. The female lead does go out of her comfort zone but only as much as she would be ok with. And she makes it clear that certain boundaries will not be crossed. At one point she said: I cannot tell you to change because it would make you unhappy but I also cannot accommodate you because it would make ME miserable and I deserve better. There’s different types of normal. And people usually get preachy when alternative lifestyles are labelled as weird or they are called perversions BUT what do you say about people who are into those alternative lifestyles and label the “normal” ones as boring, prudish, non- imaginative etc. There’s nothing wrong with knowing what you want and how you want it even if that consists of “vanilla” stuff for the rest of your life or more taboo, hardcore stuff. There is such a double standard in books that deal with such topics. They either depict one lifestyle or the other as ok.. like I said vanilla = boring/prudish OR kink = perversion, you don’t really see books portray the equality of choice. The whole hedonism thing- that was a bit weird for me to understand because I went to school of google and well... googled it and apparently it’s not about just sex it’s a lifestyle and tbh Beau - the male MC- really doesn’t live a hedonistic lifestyle apart from his three way relationships, occasional swinging and the particular kinky taste in sex... So the author fudged that one pretty bad! Research people!!! Ever heard of it?? I totally hated it when later in the book the author backtracks by having the lead guy say that he got into the lifestyle via his girl at the time and it wasn’t a choice he deliberately made which is a cop out. I would have loved to see him being totally about that life and her totally against it and try to make it work. This book could have been amazing because I totally dig the idea on which it was based BUT unfortunately after a strong, promising start, around halfway through, it all went downhill.. like REALLY downhill because it became a soap opera, with secret kid, stupid miscommunication, Beau- the lead, became a cheesy, weak mess ... yeah .. it was ... messy-ish?!

I guess I held out to the end because I was wanting to know after everything and all the sh*t if cheater girl and polygamy guy would end up together. I actually hate the main girl. Naive, stupid, a f*cking cheater and in ultimate denial. Main guy wasn't any better really. He just let the girl go without demanding answers. He says he can't live wi Eye rolling sh*t t be honest.

DO THEY HAVE NO SENSE!? Why would she keep a huge secret from him knowing his past the b*tch and why would he let her go and not f*cking fight for her the pussy. Jesus. Rating would be 1.5 in the end.

TSU: http://www.tsu.co/HopelessRomantics Blog: http://thehopelessromanticsbookblog.b... I followed my heart and it let 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 ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Georgia Cates always delivers a man with book boyfriend potential and she doesn’t fail on this one either, Beau really made this book for me. AJ is just coming out of a divorce from her childhood sweetheart and her best friends decide to take her away with them to Jamaica as a celebratory/pick me up treat. The last thing on AJ’s mind is a holiday as she has too much to do but her married BBF’s are extremely persuasive. The final blow to AJ though is when she discovers that this is one of “those” retreats...a hedonism retreat. Her friends may indulge in that kind of bedroom activity but AJ is as vanilla as they come, but it works for this married couple and they won’t take no for an answer. Beau, OMG I loved this guy, in the beginning we find out that he is a hedonist and has just come out of a polyamory relationship, albeit it wasn’t his idea and he had been the one that ended up burned. He has come to the retreat to get everything out of his system, literally, fuck it out of his system, but he didn’t count on meeting AJ the first night. “This isn’t love. Nor is it true and beautiful. But I want it more than my next breath.” These two are so opposite it is scary, but underneath you have a man that just wants normality and to be loved and a woman that really wants to discover her sexuality and to be loved too. AJ thought she had that with her ex-husband but Beau opens her eyes. These two together were seriously smoking, talk about the green eyed monster appearing!! Georgia Cates always delivers in the bedroom and this book is no different, seriously OMG. Beau is a man that knows what he is doing and this really was a voyage of discovery for both of them. AJ was like a flower bud just waiting to bloom and Beau was the gardener feeding her, watering her and making her blossom. It was beautiful to read. Beau had always been around like minded people and AJ was refreshing, but this was the first time that Beau had actually felt something, it was alien to him but he loved it and he didn’t want it to end. “I’m stupidly in love with a memory, an echo of days forever gone.” This book has some fun and witty dialogue too, I found myself laughing on more than one occasion but as with any new relationship there are always bumps in the road and this is no different. There are twists aplenty which, if you are soft sap like me will have you in tears but as this is a standalone you do get their whole journey, which I am actually sad about as I would love more from these two. “My eyes pop open when I’m startled awake. No fucking way. That did not just happen...except it did. I just sleep farted. I turn to look at Beau to see if he heard me. “Yeah. You did it so you might as well claim it.”” Georgia Cates always manages to draw me into her characters and as usual I was swept away with their story, this one was more sensual and erotic as you would expect considering the surroundings but at the forefront was always their emotional connection and that is something that I love in a book. While their time at the resort was brief you always had that gut feeling that these two would be in it for the long haul and despite the blind bends and twist and turns I always had my fingers crossed that these two would make it. It is an emotional ride and it does contain some pet peeves for some of miscommunication but it was understandable and believable. This was one book where I didn’t want to let go of the characters and I can easily see myself re-reading, even if it is just to get my fill of Beau. “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.” www.theromancecover.com

Meet Beau Emerson and Anna James Bennett. Both are at a resort for hedonists enjoying some time away from former relationships gone south. Beau and AJ meet on their first night at the resort and I’m excited to say, Beau surprisingly wasn’t at all what I expected him to be. “Words are powerful. They can evoke countless reactions. Joy. Pain. Arousal. Make a heart skip a beat. Or shatter it into a million pieces.” This book had all of the feels. Joy. Sadness. Arousal. Love. There were moments reading this book I felt my body shake from the feels. I experienced everything AJ did with her and Beau. He is officially my new dream husband and book BF! For a while I wondered if I had another epic Georgia Cates cliffhanger on my hands and once I realized I didn’t, it was almost time to jump for joy! Instead, I grabbed a glass of wine and locked myself away to finish it. No doubt, this will be a wonderful re-read for me, and soon! ~ Heather, 5 stars ~~~ My ovaries exploded when I was done reading Indulge and it was all thanks to sweet, sexy, southern Beau Emerson. My goodness, did he have a mouth that he knew to use very well…in various ways!! Beau just wanted to lose himself with one or two of the many woman at the resort he was at, to ease the pain he was enduring. Little did he realize, his trip and life would be turned upside down when his eyes meet Anna James. Like Beau, Anna James was there to celebrate her divorce from her cheating ex, though, to be honest, she never thought she would enjoy a resort like Indulge. But, as it turns out, it would change her life forever! Being a southerner all my life, I loved Anna James’ dialogue and her trueness to it; not being ashamed of it but embracing it, along with her strong belief in True Love! Oh, and Beau… My goodness, his southern-ness was so unbelievably sexy and hot as hell that I wished we could have gotten an entire book on just him! The banter between Anna James and Beau felt so real and natural that many times I felt as if I was there with them. Like life, there is angst in here that had me sweating bullets, hoping it wasn't what I thought it might be but dammit, it was! So kudos to you, Ms. Cates on scaring the mess out of me and having me grip my tablet like my life depended on it. Because it did, I just had to get to the end! A beautiful story of loss, passion, redemption and love conquering all things! I will be greedy and say I'm not ready for this to be the end of Beau and Anna James...please! ~ Kara, 5 Unbelievable stars

Anna decides to go since she can drink and lay on beach. She doesn't have to be part of what her friends do. Anna & Beau meet on accident when Anna shows up a restaurant that she really want to eat at but, when she gets there she is told she needs a reservation. Which is like 3 hours. I think. Anyway the Hostess offers her the choice of dinning with another single diner. And that is when she meets Beau. The click right from the start to having a fun and steaming time together. Having only nine days together Beau wants Anna to be his for the time they are there. Anna tell him it must be a Monogamous relationship or nothing and Beau is quick to say Yes. Not only is Anna coming off a bad time in life so is Beau. He was betrayed so badly by his Fiancé. In my opinion Anna's divorce is a walk in the park compared to what happen to Beau. So that is why when I hit the middle of the book that's when I got mad and the book lost me. Yes, there With a misunderstanding and Anna leaves Beau without an explanation. So I can understand Anna thinking that Beau betrayed her. But, what Anna does to Beau breaks my heart knowing that once again his choose was taken away from him. And Anna knowing what happen to him and turns around and hurts him so badly. A year has gone by and Beau has tried to put Anna in the past he cannot. He still loves her. He finds out about a book his sister is reading that is basically what happen between Beau and Anna in Jamaica, he knows how to find her. My beautiful big hearted Beau goes to NYC for a signing of her book and is finally able to get Anna alone and to talk to him. After letting Beau make love to her. Anna becomes such a bitch to him and is still hiding something very important that Beau should know about. Not only that but, she engaged to the same sort of boring guy she got divorced from. "Because he's safe" I could not stand Anna. She continued to be mean, awful to Beau. Now if I go on I'll give the rest of the story away. But, I will say once Anna pissed me off is when I started skimming over the book. Yes it's a HEA but I don't know if I could've been as fast in forgiving as Beau way to her. Of course that shows he is the better Person....

That one was a three part series read. This book was actually a full length novel with the couple's entire story from beginning to end. This was one of the first things that made this book different from her other stories. Overall, I really liked the book and the main characters. I was a little nervous at first when reading the book because the heroine's best friend's are swingers and to help her cope with her divorce they take the heroine to a hedonism resort. However, all is well, because our heroine is a "vanilla" type of girl, as she refers to herself, often. Our hero on the other hand was in a polyamoral(?) relationship, which is three people involved in a sexual relationship. That ended badly for Beau and so he goes to the resort to screw away his troubles. Despite Beau's lifestyle, the reader will really like him as a character. He is a sweetheart, just like most of Georgia's heroes. He is very charming and quite the dirty talker. Our couple meet at dinner one night and their story really begins. They decide to spend the week together (just the two of them). Anna James is a bit reluctant due to Beau's previous lifestyle, but he is quite good at persuading her. Here is where things start to differ from her other books, other than it not being a serial book, continued in another release. There is something that splits apart our lovers, leaving Anna James, thinking the worst of Beau. What gets me is that they are apart for over a year. This is what I wasn't a big fan of, in that both of them sleep with other people, Anna gets engaged to another man and Beau goes back to his two women at one time lifestyle. Now, before you go getting upset at Beau, the waited six months and he tried to get back with Anna, knocked on her door, tried to talk to her at a restaurant, she told him to stay away (based on this misunderstanding that split them up). He knew he didn't want to try the monogamous relationship with anyone other than Anna so he just caved and started the other relationships. Well, Beau discovers that Anna has written a book about their time together and knows this is his chance to speak to her again, to get her to listen to him. He is deeply in love with her and wants another chance. This is when he discovers the secret Anna has kept for over a year...his son. Long story short of it, they do get back together. Anna is engaged when they meet again and she does actually sleep with Beau twice while still engaged. Although, she never sleeps with her fiance again after sleeping with Beau. So, again, overall, I really liked the book (stayed up late to finish it) but I didn't care for them sleeping with other people, or Anna betraying her fiance, especially because her husband had cheated on her. I dropped it a star for those things. I love a good secret baby child story and this one was good for that. I'll look forward to her next release but can I say it is another serial book release and our couple stays monogamous to each other even when they are separated? Please and thanks! :)

    I loved the first half of this book..and was so into their relationship, friendship, hot sex and connection..and then BAM it lost me..the twist that provides the angst didn't work for me..it was awkward and made the main character a hypocrite..and I had liked her. So it rounded out at a 2.5 for me..had the author stay a little more true to who these characters had become through being together it would have been a higher read for me. Asked at 40% I would have been recommending it, but for me it I loved the first half of this book..and was so into their relationship, friendship, hot sex and connection..and then BAM it lost me..the twist that provides the angst didn't work for me..it was awkward and made the main character a hypocrite..and I had liked her.

Note - this book should include a warning label that reading this may cause you to take multiple cold showers. It was freaking hot!!!!

    I LOVED ANNA JAMES PEACH BENNET. PERIOD. And do not make me start talking about Beau Emerson *swoon*. I was a little concerned with his tastes but after some chapters I realized I did not have nothing to worry about. I felt the last chapters a little rushed and it made me feel frustrated but then the epilogue was perfect and I ended with a smile on my face! I want more from the Emerson brothers, please!!!

This has to be the BEST Georgia Cates book I've read to date, and that is saying something since I Loved all her other books. She knows how to create a story that has it all. This book has got to be the steamiest of Georgia's books. You will definitely want a fan and cold drink with you when you read this book. This book totally sucked me in. I loved the storyline and the characters she has created in this book. The pace was fantastic and the writing flawless. I read this book in less than a day, because it was so good I couldn't put it down. Georgia had me laughing, swooning, crying and even rolling my eyes at times. I love when an author can do that to me…it shows true talent!!! In INDULGE we meet Anna James (AJ) and Beau. AJ just came out of a crappy marriage and her best friends give her an all paid trip to Jamaica with them to the resort Indulge. She hesitantly goes along, because her friends are swingers and live a different lifestyle than she does. Indulge is an all inclusive resort that tends to lean towards Hedonism and Polyamorous couples. Even knowing this AJ can't pass up a trip like this. On her first night she is alone and hungry so she goes to a restaurant on the grounds, finding out the wait is too long but she is able to be seated with another single diner, so she takes a chance and does that. This is where she meets Beau. What happens from here is a fun filled adventure into learning to broaden your horizons and try new things ( not all sexual ). I loved Beau right from the start!!! He completely stole my heart. He was a man with a very naughty mouth, but a heart of gold and he loved his family immensely!!! I loved watching both him and AJ grow into stronger people as their time together continued on. I don't want to say anything more because this is a book that everyone should experience on their own ;) INDULGE is a standalone novel with a Happy Ending. It is told kind of in Dual POV. The first 12 chapters are told from AJ's POV and then there is a time jump and we get 6 chapters in Beau's POV, then for the last two chapters it is back in AJ's POV. The epilogue is in Beau's and I absolutely LOVED the epilogue. She finished their story amazingly well, so that the reader is not left wondering what happened to this couple. She did put a little something in the epilogue about Beau's brother Judd and I am hoping that is leading to a book about Judd. I would love a story about him :) If you are a Georgia Cates fan then you DON'T want to miss this book!!! This is the best book by her to date. If you have never read a book by Georgia then what are you waiting for….Start with this one, you won't be sorry!!!! Follow Us at :: Book Bitches Blog | Facebook | Twitter

Meredith and Grayson are swingers but Anna only does singular relationships but decides to go along knowing they have strict rules that are followed at the resort. This is where she meets Beau, he is getting over a relationship too but his relationships are more the threesome types. How the MC's meet, get along and develop goes smoothly and very quickly they have lust and sexual attraction that they decide to give a relationship a go when they leave the resort. This is where it wasn't so enjoyable to read, lots of things were starting to irritate me. *Pills never seem to work *How hard is it to communicate and confront someone to get answers!! *Fight harder, you know they could be lying so don't walk away *Swapped pov and a year later sucked *Needed more Meredith & Grayson so much 1st half with their characters and the little near the end didn't satisfy. *You might see something to make you walk away but they should be told!! He manages his lifestyle away from his sister and niece so why can't he make it work *Enough with the full names already, I get so over repetitive words, I remember their names, I don't need it every few pages *Did he go without sex for 6 months before finding a duo? *12 month clothes for a 5 month old, hard to imagine *And where did the name William come from?

    Georgia Cates' writing always pulls me in from the very beginning of the storyline, and she did it again with Indulge. The idea of hedonism is a concept explored often in the books I read, and Cates examines it in a very interesting way in Anna James and Beau’s story. What I love most about her insight is that she provides all sides of the relationships/sex involved, giving a full view of what's involved and the situations that can lead people to these kinds of sexual practices or lead them away Georgia Cates' writing always pulls me in from the very beginning of the storyline, and she did it again with Indulge. The idea of hedonism is a concept explored often in the books I read, and Cates examines it in a very interesting way in Anna James and Beau’s story. What I love most about her insight is that she provides all sides of the relationships/sex involved, giving a full view of what's involved and the situations that can lead people to these kinds of sexual practices or lead them away from them because the lifestyle can cause problems between couples. Beau Emerson chases pleasure, which is why he frequents the sexual playground that is Indulge, but Anna James is as vanilla as they come, or so she thinks. Cates does a great job of illustrating the attraction that’s between them from the start while also providing readers with Anna James’ conflicted emotions because she knows nothing can happen with him because they have very different thoughts about one on one relationships. Anna James is a forever girl and Beau indulges in much more carnal activities, so she knows she’s setting herself up for heartbreak, but her lust and need for him overrules her logic. Georgia Cates definitely knows how to write sex scenes that are both sensual and animalistic; she’s able to convey in words the pleasure her characters experience as well as what the connection does to their heart as well. I enjoyed Indulge immensely; it has the steam, angst, and heartbreaking situations that readers have come to expect from Cates’ stories, but I admit, I would have liked to get both Anna James and Beau's perspectives throughout the book, not just in chunks. I feel like I missed out on some vital insight because I didn’t have both of their views in all that occurs between them. I wanted to understand Anna James and Beau’s reasons for making the decisions that they do, especially in the last half of the story, but it was difficult to do so in a few situations. Overall, though, it’s another great story with complex characters from Georgia Cates’ fabulous imagination and I can’t wait to see what she has for her readers next.

But I always know it'll be hot and I'll find myself hard pressed not to love the hero. INDULGE did not disappoint. Anna James finds herself heading to a hedonistic resort with her best friend and husband to celebrate her divorce from her cheating ex-husband. Despite having reservations about being at such a club, she can't pass up a trip to spend some quality time at a Jamaican resort. She was ready for fun in the sun, she just wasn't expecting Beau Emerson. Beau's character was larger than life and seemed to leap off the page. With his southern charm and sexual chemistry he was hard to resist from the minute we meet him. And as the first part of the book is told from Anna's POV, we know she found herself hard press to resist him as well. Despite having participated in a non-conventional relationship, you knew Beau was willing to do whatever it took to be with Anna James just by the way he acted with her. And as the story flipped to his POV, we knew exactly what he thought and what he wanted from our reluctant heroine. You couldn't help but pull for him. His relationships in the past were more about being caught up in something because his partner introduced it, rather than it being something that Beau wanted. So you felt bad for him when he suddenly found himself without the one person who made him feel complete. Sometimes I wondered about Anna James. For someone who was best friends with someone who was into alternate lifestyles, she was very closed minded and judgmental when it came to Beau. She was quick to not believe what he was saying, rather than taking his word when he told her how he felt about her. It was frustrating. Especially when she used his past against him as a reason for her to act poorly and keep a huge secret from him. And she was likable. I enjoyed INDULGE. It was a fun escape into some beach fun and a hot romance. Georgia Cates never disappoints and INDULGE is definitely one to pick up.

    Granted, when I got to 4% and found out the main character Anna James, a.k.a Peach, went vacationing in Indulge where Hedonism is acceptable, I thought I picked the wrong book to read. However, as the read further and further, page after page, I began to like Beau, a.k.a, Beauregard, a.k.a the Polyamory guy, because he was willing to give up his practices for his one and only – his true and beautiful. In their vacation romance, Anna James discovers she is a beautiful, wanted woman in Beau arms wit Granted, when I got to 4% and found out the main character Anna James, a.k.a Peach, went vacationing in Indulge where Hedonism is acceptable, I thought I picked the wrong book to read. However, as the read further and further, page after page, I began to like Beau, a.k.a, Beauregard, a.k.a the Polyamory guy, because he was willing to give up his practices for his one and only – his true and beautiful. In their vacation romance, Anna James discovers she is a beautiful, wanted woman in Beau arms with lingering doubts of is she alone enough to a man who enjoys variety inside the bedroom. Beau quickly understands that Anna James is all he needs, enough to throw away a life style he practiced for years. However, vacation in Indulge has its temptations. It seems Beau has his work cut out for him and Anna James has her own demons to stand up to before either can face their relationship and fully vast in it for the long run. I reached 47% when the twist I waited for the previous 10% happened. And it was keen to make me doubt the whole 47% I already read, so I started a race to the finish line and read the remaining of the book in a breeze! Georgia, you created an old-fashioned sweet love story I haven’t read in a long time, You brought me back to pre 50 shades stories I loved to read as a teenager and a young adult. Thank you. You got 5 stars from me!!!
