Welcome to The Indigo Lounge, the scandalously sexy sky-high playground where anything can happen...

Flirty, dirty and utterly delicious, HIGH is the perfect next read for lovers of the internationally renowned This Man series from Jodi Ellen Malpas & Sylvia Day's Crossfire series.

Zachary Savage is a man accustomed to getting whatever and whoever he wants. He's buried his demons and risen from the ashes to become the playboy owner of the internationally renowned Indigo Lounge, a fleet of ultra-exclusive sky-high pleasure palaces. He has everything he wants, until he sets eyes on Bethany Green. One look is all it takes ~ she has to be his. Bethany Green has endured the worst year of her life; bad luck and heartbreak at every turn. Karma swings wildly in her favour when a money-can't-buy golden ticket lands in her lap - an invitation to experience the scandalously sexy Indigo Lounge for herself. Green by name and green by nature, is she brave enough to accept the hottest ticket in town? One glimpse of Zachary Savage is enough to convince her that she isn't cosmopolitan enough to play in his glamorous, sinfully sexy world. But they're already in the air, and reality is a long way behind them. The only way is up. The Indigo Lounge. Step aboard and check your inhibitions at the door.  

Andrea's Review 
*ARC received in return for an honest review

Well, what can I say but...WOW, what a HOT readZara Cox is now on my list of authors to stalk look out for.

When I read 'flirty, dirty and utterly delicious' I knew High sounded like my kinda book and oh boy, was I right!! You're gonna need heat-resistant gloves to handle your kindle when reading this book, a fan plugged into the mains to stop from over heating and plenty of fluids to keep you hydrated (from all of the drooling & dribbling that will most probably occur!) 

As soon as Zachary Savage (just the name gets me going!) sets eyes on Bethany Green, waiting to board his luxury jet, he decides he wants her and nothing will get in his way. He practically frog-marches her to his office just so she's not chatted up by one of the other male guests waiting in line with her. They've hardly spoken two words to each other when he tells her he is going to perform the customary body search. From this point my kindle started to heat up and never cooled down until I read the last page! 

"My name is Zachary Savage. You can call me Zach. In fact, I prefer it. Because Zachary is too long for the many times I intend for you to scream my name when I make you come."

The sexual tension that builds up between the couple got me going and by the time they finally 'did the deed' I was gagging for it, for them! 
The sexual chemistry between Zach and Bethany is so hot and intense. It's lust/love at first sight for them both. After only knowing him one day, Bethany agrees to take Zach up on his offer of ditching the coveted Indigo Lounge experience and going on elsewhere with him to stay, among other places, his property in Marrakesh. Zach is very blunt in letting Bethany know what he wants...her!

The effect of Zach Savage's mouth on her was a lesson in how devastating chemistry could be. He wiped her out with just one touch of his lips on hers.

Their passion is so intense and all consuming that you'd be forgiven for thinking that the couple have spent a fair bit of time together - however, they've only known each other a few short days when jealousies and insecurities rear their ugly heads. They both have their secrets and demons they are fighting to overcome. 

I got quite annoyed with Zach at times the way he railroaded Bethany into doing things his way and wanting things to go his way all the time but, don't go thinking Bethany is the poor put-upon-female who does exactly as she's told. Oh no, she is quite good at issuing some ultimatums of her own and standing her ground when needed. Zach wants to know all about Bethany - her fears, her past. And at one point he coerces her to confront her biggest fear, telling her he wants to help her overcome it but when Bethany tries to get to know Zach better, asking questions about his past, the shutters go up and he refuses to talk about it for fear of chasing her away. But he is still one hot-as-hell, sexy, dirty-talking, alpha male that can talk dirty to me ANY day!

If you're looking for a quick read that will get you hot under more than your collar than High is definitely the book for you and I can High-ly recommend it. Although it ends with a cliff hanger don't worry as book two, Higher, is available to buy now so you won't have to wait to find out what happens.

HIGH (The Indigo Lounge Series #1)


HIGHER (The Indigo Lounge Series #2)



Welcome back to the Indigo Lounge, the scandalously sexy sky-high playground where anything can, and does happen...

Flirty, dirty and utterly delicious, HIGHER is the sizzling conclusion to Zach & Bethany’s love story which began in book one, HIGH.

When Bethany finds herself back on board the Indigo Lounge, this time for work purposes, she knows her life is about to once again slide into free fall.

Zachary Savage has branded himself onto her senses, and despite her attempts to protect her heart she’s pulled right back into his sizzlingly intense orbit of sex, more sex and dark secrets.

But even out of this world sex won't save Beth's heart when Zach is finally ready to reveal the truth… HIGHER. The only way is up, and this time they're going all the way.

  High & Higher are two halves of one whole and best read consecutively.


I had Pink's "The Truth About Love" on repeat whilst writing this book, lol. Bethany, my heroine, listened to it too throughout the book. These two were her favourites :) ~Zara Cox
