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. Staying. 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.

Always in search of my next book boyfriend. <3
I have read several book by Georgia Cates and while this is not one of my favorites I will still continue to read/listen to her books. Ava Erickson has quickly become one of my favorite female narrator so I will definitely listen to more of her books.
Most interesting was the resort the heroine attends. Least would be the hero finding her again through a book.
The hero was my favorite, I did not like the heroine at all during the second half of the book.
Maybe with some tweaking here and there...
While I enjoyed the first half of the book, the second half just didn't hold my interest. The heroines actions are purely selfish and I couldn't connect with her character.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Anna James has just divorced her cheating (now ex) husband so her loyal best friend and her husband buy her a First Class holiday - to accompany them to Indulge - a Hedonistic Resort in Jamaica where all your sexual indulgences are catered for. They are happily married Swingers and love the lifestyle but AJ is Vanilla through and through so takes some convincing to go. However, on AJ's first night there she meets Beau Emerson - a very handsome, very sexy and very drool worthy Alpha Member who is also alone and he's ready to bury himself in multiple women because he wants to forget what just happen to him in his now broken up polyamorous relationship. Neither one of them was looking for love.... it was just meant to be 'good times and lots of sex' but on the eighth day of their very hot romance they both realized they wanted more. However, things didn't work out that way because a betrayal and misplaced assumptions forced AJ to flee.... heartbroken - and with more than she'd come with - or bargained for.
Beau didn't know what he'd done or why AJ had fled and, even though he knew he loved her, he still went back to his polyamorous lifestyle.... and that move would eventually come back and bite him in the ass some 14 months later. However, shocking unbelievable news propels him to go and claim his woman back. Beau has a plan, he knows just where AJ's going to be - they are both from the South, live 40 minutes away from each other and nothing is going to stop him..... but a twist has him reeling and a shocking discovery derails his entire plans.
From the start of their relationship the banter between these two characters was smooth and easy, there was humor, their chemistry and attraction to each other was off the charts and this led to some hot n heavy love scenes. Beau was a great character (and very talented with his dirty mouth girls!) but AJ made a couple of stupid wrong turns which led to heartbreak, angst, drama and the loss of some precious time before they eventually got their HEA ending. Initially told from AJ's POV but further into the listen we start to hear Beau's POV too. The narration was good, the storyline was entertaining, addictive and hot.
Worth a credit? Yes, it's an enjoyable Contemporary romance where both the Hero and Heroine made mistakes, suffered because of them, forgave each other and reaped the rewards in a sweet sweet Epilogue.
Audible Addict!!! My Favorite books have change since joining Audible and my taste for erotic has enhanced! Follow me to the dark side. ;)
This was full of everything you hope for in a book. Great love scenes ,conflict, alpha males and a very happy ending. I loved it because it's not that fake 2 min love story it's real passion that has to be worked for. Get it
If you have issues with cheating at all then this book is NOT for you! I'm not even talking about swinging or polyamory situations. I'm tossing out a warning for straight up cheating on both the MCs' parts. It ruined what otherwise would have been a good book.
If the H would have kicked his 2 women out BEFORE going to see the woman he claimed to love, I would have had so much respect for him. instead, it made his attempt to reach out to her a joke.
If she had said she had a fiancé and couldn't be with him sexually until she ended things, I would have respected her and rooted for them. instead, they both cheat on their significant others, and she continues to.do so repeatedly. Kid or not, at that point I don't feel either of them deserves an HEA, and it took A LOT for me to finish the book as a result. Also, the fact that she judged him so hard for his previous polyamory lifestyle(which was mutually agreed upon for those involved), while she continually cheated on her fiancé just blew my mind.
Fantastic job by the narrators on this book.
Truly Captivating and Satisfying.
it's a shorter version of the Crossfire series in my opinion. It had everything from Lust, Love, Betrayal, Family, Marriage, and Babies. It feels like the book was a full circle. We get to meet the characters when they are healing from heart breaks and they evolve in their relationship. We see them come full circle in the life of the book. I truly enjoyed Beau's POV the most.
I love how Joe Arden brings the book to life he adds that special lust in his narrating. I also enjoyed listening to his POV the most. I got the most out of the story in the last chapters of the book due to Beau's POV.
This book made me cry more than laugh. I was very mad at Anna James for what she did to Beau. I was very happy in the beginning of the book when they were getting to know eachother and he starts to think of a future with her. Overall it was a well written love story. I just would have loved to see a little more detail of their life after they got together it seems that the last few chapters were so rushed. It could have used a few more chapters to this book or a novella. You share so much with the charcthers in the beginnning and to rush the end was unfortunate.
