Indigo Nights

Author:  Louise Bay
Genre:  Romance
Publisher:  Self-published

Description:  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. 

My Review

This is the first book I have read by Louise Bay and after having finished it I had to ask myself why.  In addition to this being a thoroughly enjoyable read, which grabbed me right from the start, it introduced me to a new book boyfriend.  It is a well written, sexy, sensual romance story that will grab the reader right from the start and keep them engaged for the entire book. Yes, there are plenty of hot steamy scenes between Beth and Dylan, but the author delivers a wide range of emotions throughout the entire book.  There were plenty of humorous and sweet moments, but also moments where you got a glimpse into the vulnerabilities of each of the characters.

I love any story that is character driven, because I think the readers connection to the characters is what keeps them engaged in a story.  How I connect with the characters is what helps make a book memorable for me.  Both of the main characters in this book are three dimensional characters that are well developed.  Beth is a sassy, vulnerable, honest and scared.  Dylan is controlled, powerful and yes little cocky.  The author has written the characters in such a way to show their vulnerabilities so that the reader can see how they grow.  Beth has strength, but as the story progresses she becomes confident that she can maintain her sobriety and make the choices that are right for her.  Dylan is controlled, sexy, dominant alpha male, but as the story progresses we get a glimpse at his sensitivity and compassion for Beth as well as his sweet side.

I also enjoyed the secondary characters, especially Haven and Ash who both have their own stories.  This is a stand alone book, so if you are new to Louise Bay and have not read their stories don't worry, it will not interfere with your enjoyment of this story.  Indigo Nights is a well written, sexy, love story with steamy scenes and great characters.  I will definitely be checking out other books by this author.

I was provided an ARC by the author through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own.
