Release Date: February 9, 2016
The only thing better than cake is cake with a side of orgasms. Dylan James has no expectations when it comes to relationships. He uses women for sex and they use him for his money and power. It’s quid pro quo and he's good with that. It works. Beth Harrison has been burned. She's tired of the lies and the game playing that men bring and has buried herself in her passion—baking which keeps her out of the reach of heartbreak. As she begins her career as a TV baker, a new world opens up to her. Dylan and Beth both know that casual sex is all about giving what you need to get what you want. Except that sometimes you give more than you need to and get everything you ever wanted.
~*EXCERPT*~Dylan “I understood the dynamic between men and women. I got to sleep with hot women, and in exchange they got to fuck a rich guy in the hope that they’d become beneficiaries of my cash. I might be handsome, but I knew from bitter experience that if a richer guy came along, I’d be left in the taillights of the women I slept with. It just happened that now, there weren’t many richer men, which gave me a certain satisfaction. I’d made peace with the transactional nature of relationships between men and women and had no expectations. At some point in my past I’d thought that love was possible. Not anymore. It was all about giving to get.”
~*REVIEW BY ELYSSA*~
Let me tell you something Fallers. Louise Bay books are my anomaly. I shouldn't like them. If it was any other author, I'd shrug them off, with a "Meh," and go on my way. There's something indelible about her writing that keeps me coming back, though. I don't know what it is--it's addictive. And let me tell you, after a long wait, Indigo Nights was totally worth it. I'm giving it five leaves!
Beth Harrison used to be an alcoholic. She's almost four years sober, but she still works at it--sobriety isn't an end point. It's the end of the beginning of the rest of her life, complete with family, friends, and a lot of baking. She wasn't looking for Dylan James but fate, or rather, airplane seating arrangements, had other plans. The instant they lock eyes on each other, Dylan and Beth are hooked, and what starts as hot sex between strangers quickly becomes much, much more. Between their separate homes in Chicago and London, the raw intensity of a new relationship, and a pesky ex who won't stay in the past, they certainly have enough problems on their hands--but no matter what life throws at them, they're able to make it work--until work gets in the way.
I have to tell you something, Fallers. I've been reading Louise's books since I accidentally stumbled across her first novella and instantly signed myself up for her first serial blog tour. It's amazing, watching a writer grow and come into her own, and this book is absolutely the cherry on top of the cake. It's one of the best books I've read in a while. The human struggle of Beth coming to terms with her life of sobriety and how she as relationships moving forward, the guttural intensity of Dylan's feelings for her--everything is pitch-perfect. I don't know how she's going to top this one. Dylan and Beth's story is an absolute delight.
So, you know, buy it now. Read it now. Get your hands on it however you can.
