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.

This book starts out with Anna getting a divorce. Her ex husband had an affair in the most cliche way and that brought on her friends taking her to a hedonistic resort, assuring her she can rest and relax while they have their fun.
This is where Beau and Anna meet. Beau is polyamorous but one look at Anna and he is questioning his entire lifestyle. 8 days in paradise is cut short by a misunderstanding that tore the 2 apart. Months later they are brought back together and the most angsty torment begins.
I have to say, I loved this book like 80%. So much of it was hot and steamy and full of chemistry and drama. It kept me completely gripped and listening intently.
The 20% I didn't like, I really didn't like. Anna made choices, that to me, were completely unforgivable and especially given the circumstances, particularly cruel. The reaction of Beau was so completely understanding and not at all what I thought he should have had. The plot didn't go at all how I had thought. Which is not a bad thing, I just found it to be so completely wrong and unrealistic.
Worth a read? Definitely!! And then come back so I have someone to swoon and gripe with.
Ava did 90% of the narration and she was fantastic. Had the perfect southern belle twang to make the character believable. Joe Arden wasn't in the book too much but what he did, was stellar. I completely loved the narration of this book.
