Blog Tour & Review ~ Indulge by Georgia Cates

Indulge by Georgia Cates:
Release: August 3

From New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal best-selling author, Georgia Cates, comes a steamy new standalone contemporary romance novel.

Book Description:

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.

***ARC received for an honest review***

“Ours hasn’t been a love story, as I thought. It’s a fucking tragedy.”

Another book boyfriend coming warned!! 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.”

About the Author:

When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing. When she’s being domestic, she’s listening to her iPod and visualizing scenes for her current work in progress. Every story coming from her always has a song to inspire it.
