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


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.

So far, I’ve never found a Georgia Cates book I didn’t love. I really enjoyed Indulge, it is fantastic! It’s definitely a different direction that her previous books, but still entertaining and hot as hell. However, it doesn’t quite live up to the Beauty and Sin series for me.
            Hedonism isn’t something that I find appealing, so that particular aspect, made it tougher for me to get into. Any kind of plural relationship seems fake and about something completely different than is portrayed. However, since Anna is staunchly monogamous, I could get beyond it and enjoy the book.
            Anna is a straight shooter in the beginning, a little broken, but open to stepping out of her comfort zone and having some fun. She’s not in the least interested in stepping into the hedonism world though. She doesn’t judge her friends for their lifestyle choices, and I appreciated that in her personality.
When she meets Beau, she is immediately drawn to him, however she doesn’t believe that he can change. In particular, she doesn’t feel like she would ever be enough for him on her own. This is partly due to the circumstances of her spilt with her ex-husband, having been left for a younger woman. What made me sad, was that she didn’t give Beau enough credit as a person. He’s clearly a strong personality, someone who could make a change and stick to their choice.
Beau doesn’t know it, but he’s looking to be healed, to be loved just for himself. After being burned by his fiancé in their polyamory relationship, he’s ready to drown his sorrows in a whole lot of women. But, the moment he meets Anna, she is the only one he wants. He convinces her to spend the rest of her vacation with him and as their tie goes on, he realizes that he wants more.
As always there is conflict in the story, one that could easily be solved if people would just take a second and talk things out. But, such is the typical plot of a story. Misunderstandings and all that jazz.
Without giving away spoilers, I’ll just say that Anna did something to truly piss me off and I felt like she had no right, no matter how you slice them apples. So, it soured me on her quite a bit. However, Beau really saves the book. He such a great character, devoted and sure in his convictions, willing to let Anna do and be whatever she wants as long as it makes her happy.

The chemistry is definitely typical Georgia Cates, and by that I mean HOT!! There is some true sexy in this book and its panty-melting good! Overall, I’d recommend it, especially if you’re a fan of this author, and the hedonism aspect (not between the two main characters and there is no description of a poly sexual activities) doesn’t bother you, it’s a great book. If this is your first Georgia Cates book, make sure you read the rest! I truly love this author and I’ll continue reading everything she writes!
