The only thing better than cake is cake with a side of orgasms.
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.
Indigo Nights is a stand-alone novel with no cliffhanger.

"EXCELLENT "DISCOVERY" !!!!!"
I had never heard of, read nor listened to Louise Bay before, so this author and this listen was a very welcome discovery for me. The plot, the wording, the timing was on point, and it was not an incomplete serial. Indigo Nights was hot-hot, not nasty (there is a difference); I enjoyed the listen very much. AND of course there was SEBASTIAN YORK and Andi Arndt!! I will be listening to more of Ms. Bay's work.
From the beginning is capture me...
I like how Beth was independent women and the challenges she faced, she didn't go back to drinking. We need more positive stories like this book.
Dylan is very interesting and sexy, I like how he didn't allowed his ex-wife to get back into his life.
"No one can eat that much cake and not get fat"
If they weren't having sex, they were eating cake. I'm sure the sequel to this book would have to include Weight Watchers.
"Nice, easy listen."
This is a light, easy, entertaining listen. The story was interesting and humorous at times. The narrator did a great job. It was just a nice easy listen.
I was provided this book as an ARC.
"So so so boring. Not typical for this author."
So so so very very boring! I didn't finish it. Not typical of this author.
If all you're looking for in a book is sex, cakes, sex, cakes, sex, cakes, then this is for you. If you're actually looking for a story that includes one good food-sex scene, you'd be more satiated reading Henry Fielding's classic "Tom Jones."
Not even the wonderfully talented duo of narrators, Arndt/York, could save this one.
Thankfully, this is the 4th Louise Bay book I've read and not the first. If that were the case, I would never have read another.
"Diet of only cake"
Literally these people would be morbidly obese if they ate the amount of cake in real life. At some point I thought to myself, will they ever eat anything else?! Other than that very distracting detail this book is light and a good read.
Great love story!
Dylan's romancing after Beth left for London. He is perfect.
Everything. The emotion in their voice put me in Beth and Dylan's heads. They made me feel the story.
I can't say I had any extreme reactions but I did love the book and the audio.
"Soo close to great"
The first time Dylan says to himself (EARLY in the book) that he is going to tell Beth that he owns the company, and surprise surprise, he doesn't. You know that it is going to be a redicilous amount of time before Beth finns out, and of course from someone else. It is too annoying for a great writer to take that route. But at least don't wait until the last 1/4 of the book to let it all crumble, so if you actually liked the book up until then. You get so disappointment that you just sigh.
"A FUN, SEXY & LIGHT CHICK LIT LOVE STORY"
This book was a gamble for me because I hadn't heard of this author before but I got it for three reasons - I thought the cover image was sultry, I love a Billionaire bad boy story and I love the narration of Sebastian York and Andi Arndt. And thankfully my gamble paid off because this was a sweet, light, sexy, fun and very compelling listen with not a lot of angst, suspense or drama.
Beth is a beautiful loving recovering alcoholic who'd been in a toxic relationship 3 yrs earlier that had sent her over the top and left her with bad memories, insecurities and trust issues. Dylan is a hot, dirty talking drool (and sigh) worthy Billionaire Playboy and he too had been burned before - so now his sex life is just made up of very casual hookups with absolutely no strings or commitments. He isn't arrogant but he is confident in his looks and the effect they have on women who all vie for his attention, his body... and his money - and he is happy to indulge.
So when his flight is delayed and he has an unexpected overnight stay... Dylan thought what better way to spend it than having a steamy one night of fun with his beautiful fellow passenger. But in between the chemistry and flirty banter he soon learnt that Beth is no greedy superficial shallow lay and this woke up his tender, sweet, protective, possessive and vulnerable side - and Beth initially trod very carefully with Dylan to protect her sobriety and her heart. And what started out as a fling soon turned into love... but an annoying ex Fiancé and a secret spilled soon derailed everything.
This was a quick, easy and predictable listen because you just know that when the Hero has a secret and naively holds back on sharing vital information with the Heroine then it's a ticking time bomb and that secret (once out) is going to blow up and cause major damage. I have no problem with insta-romance but I know some of you do - so be warned this is one of those books. It was enjoyable, very addictive, entertaining, sexy, passionate and had a loveable cast of characters but it wasn't deep. Dual POV's, standalone and a HEA was eventually reached after the double whammy of blows to Beth's heart that was accidentally and innocently inflicted by Dylan.
Worth a credit? Yes... as long as you're not looking for anything more than a very good, well narrated and light insta-everything romance between two people whose pasts have made them vulnerable to doubts, trust insecurities and shaped who they had become. But once they finally overcame those insecurities their relationship blossomed.
I enjoyed this book and will be check this authors other books. Read brilliantly by my favourite narraters.
refreshing to read about someone managing alcoholism and how it can affect daily choices.
Gorgeous love story, very predictable format, loved that she loved cakes. enjoyable all the same
"I was gripped from start to finish."
I came across Louise Bay by recommendation from a friend and now I just have to read everything. I found myself following all the emotions and really feeling them. When I knew how Beth or Dylan were going to react or feel I was right there with them.
The narration by Andi Arndt and Sebastian York is always great, their voices have such expression and depth of feeling to them. I would recommend this to anyone.
