Indigo Nights by Louise Bay

Synopsis from Amazon:

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:

I always feel a little naught when I pick up a book that's been labelled as erotica. To me that genre used to mean a book full of sex but no proper substance. I have now changed my mind.

Beth was a very likeable character. Strong woman with a weak past. She knows what she wants and really seem to be the more grown up person in the story.

Dylan started off as an arrogant I-am-your-love-god kind of guy, but soon turned out to be the more romantic of the too. He turned a little too quickly for me - I was expecting him to play a little more hard-to-get character.

Both characters had a sad story in the past that shaped them into who there were when they met and thanks to those good back stories the book was made more believable.

I always look at books I can relate too, that I can believe in. characters should be easy to imagine and the paths they take should be natural and I think this books ticks the boxes.

This is a quick read romance well told I Louise Bay is an another I will look out for. And as I love baking too it was just a little more personal.

Thank you to NetGalley for access to this book in exchange for an honest opinion.

My rating: 4/5
