I really liked these books! The connection between Zolt and Irelyn was red hot and jumped off the page. Their characters were pretty awesome and had good layers. My favorite is probably Zolt! He was a bad boy mixed with a good boy mixed with a broken boy. He kept talking about his “shadow-self”, in the first book, and I didn’t really think that it was going to manifest but oh boy did it in the end!! This story has not only red hot steamy love scenes but mystery, intrigue, and inner demons.

I received a copy of these book through NetGalley from the publisher/author for an honest review. I really liked the first book of this 2 part series. I immediately fell for the immediate love/fate idea of the characters. I also liked the story was told from both of the character's points of view. Having both sides gave me a full picture of the story. Overall, the story was intense, engaging, and the suspense part kept me on the edge of my seat.

A few parts made me want to pull my hair out. These

I quiet enjoyed reading this saga. It has so much mystery, intrigue, erotic sex and murder, it just keeps you guessing page after page. The large cast of characters are well developed, they come alive, you get to know them, so the surprise factor really slams you as you learn not everyone is who or what they seem to be.
Zolt is an extremely complex character, he has his very promising football career snatched from him in an instant, and even this isn't what it seems to be.

I received this book as an ARC from Net Galley for my honest review.

This is the first book that I have read from D.L. Raver and it was really good. If you want a book to bring the heat you may want to prepare yourself because this bring full on scorching fire!

This book is sexy, emotional and has that wonderful feel of if it is meant to be then we will meet again. The idea that in Zolt's worst moment in his football career he is in pain and passing out but one face, one person grabs his attention

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review *

This book bundle has Indulging in Irelyn and Being Zolt, which is excellent since Indulging in Irelyn has a cliffhanger. There is also both POV's for Zolt and Irelyn which were written wonderfully.

In Indulging in Irelyn we learn that Irelyn and Zolt have a deep connection even before they officially meet. They have an interesting past and a beautiful connection. Zolt is an ex NFL player that had to quit football due to an injury

I received a copy of Indulging Series Box Set by D.L. Raver for an honest review.
Wow, I really enjoyed this series. The characters, the storyline, and the suspense had me completely involved in this book. I couldn't put it down!

I really enjoyed Zolt's character, being an ex football player and fearing to get back on the field after his injury had me interested to see him overcome that fear.
Irelyn's character was strong and in most parts had me loving her but at times I felt she was dragging thin

At first, I felt that both characters were quite shallow ex-football player with more money than he needed, and a girl raised in a rich family with everything handed to her. As I continued, the story got better: though all the death/murders happening would probably cause many people to grow up a bit. I thought the marriage was a bit quick, considering they had only been together maybe a few weeks?...the timeline wasn't too clear: but to do that when there were more important things ...more

what can i say about these books? i absolutely loved them both!!! Zolt is an ex football star who was injured on the field. Irelyn is Zolts seraph. she was there on the field when he was hurt, but they didnt see each other again until Zolt started to work in Irelyn's father's law firm. It was love at second? sight. there is so much emotion in these books but they flow together so well. i love their love story. and i cannot wait to read more from this author!

I received a free copy of the Indulgence series by DL Raver in exchange for an honest review.

The first book if the series, "Indulging Irelyn", is about how two people who had a chance encounter several years ago and meet again, Zolt and Irelyn. He was a pro football player on the rise who suffered a career-ending injury and she was a fan who was on the sidelines when it happened. For some reason, she felt compelled to be in his line of sight while he was in agony in the field. Unbeknownst to her

3 Stars.

Indulging in Irelyn and Being Zolt focuses on the relationship between Irelyn Wilkes and Zolt Hamil. He is an ex NFL quarterback turned lawyer with a bum leg and serious trust/anger issues. She is the only light in his dark haze. He thinks she is his dream girl, his seraph, someone who guides him through the darkness, but isn't really there, until she is. When Zolt gets a job offer at a new law firm, he comes face to face with his seraph,

This 2 book series was full of romance and suspense with a bit of Gone Girl meets Fifty Shades em'bed'ded! Zolt and Irelyn had a destined connection from the start. I do wish the characters' love had been a bit more developed in the reconnecting phase of the story though. The story kept attacking my inner thoughts on exactly what was going on and how it was related to the entire plot and emotional pull of the story. Some scenes were sweet and sacred, while others were tough to read and gritty. I ...more

I truly loved this story. Zolt was an NFL quarterback who had a career ending injury during the Superbowl. Somehow while fighting the pain he made up this hallucination of this blonde haired, sable eyes beauty...She was his saving grace. He always pictured that face when he was in so much pain and couldn't cope.

Well long an behold that girl wasn't a hallucination and actually turns out to be his new boss daughter. Ha not what yo

WE have two very different characters for this book. Zolt is an NFL quarterback who lost it all when a bad hit shattered his leg. The only saving grace of that day? A young girl in the stands who left him feeling like he conjured her up to deal with everything that was happening.

Irelyn has been through a lot. Losing her brother, working a job she doesn't want, dating a guy she's not ever sure she likes, well things are about to change. Zolt is now a lawyer at her dads firm and meeting him face

The two parts of the Indulging series hit me better than just the first one. Here is my review of part 1: Indulging in Irelyn.

Re-reading this to it's conclusion provided a better thing for me. It made more sense though the creepy factor still kind of permeated throughout. I kinda get the obsessive quality of their relationship (sometimes I felt like in bordered into the abusive). Zolt still had his jerk moments (a lot of them) an

Received from NetGalley for a honest review. I picked up this box set after reading the first book awhile ago. I glad I had the chance to read book 1 Indulging in Irelyn. I had forgot how book 1 ended. Zolt & Irelyn have always meant to be together, from the football field meeting to years later. Both stories carry the same theme, bad people corrupting good. Marcus the root behind all. As much as I wanted to like this story, it became a little to repetitive at times. - each trying to do what ...more

I liked the story and all the twists and turns but I feel that these books would have been better without a lot the sex scenes as I felt that if Zolt had loved Irelyn as much as he made out he would not have acted out his some of his desires until everything had been resolved it just left him coming across as a selfish prick and not much better than Marcus in someways. Being British I also didn't understand understand a lot of the NFL references and so comments but this didn't spoil the story. ...more

This series is quite good. I read the first book quite a while ago and recieved the box set from Netgalley for a honest review. The first book had me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what wa going to happen next. The second book was a little bit of a let down. It was not quite as full of drama.Everything was wrapped up, but just a little too easy. I still enjoyed the story just not as much as the first. I am glad the Zolt and Irelyn finally got their HEA. Marcus was one sick guy. I will now

i received this booK set in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed these books. they were entertaining and contained characters with complex emotions and drama filled relationships, everything you could ask for in a story. I especially liked the twist and the untimely demise of family members I wasn't expecting to go. it left me wondering what else the story had in store as I continued to read. I was pleasantly surprised with the climatic ending.

I received this boxed series in exchange for an honest review.

Wow. There was a lot of drama, sex, love and even illegal activity going on in these books! There was never a dull moment. The story line was exciting, and I couldn't help but fall in love with Zolt. I definitely recommend them, and I will be looking for more books by this author.

"The Indulging Series Box Set," by D.L. Raver includes the books "Indulging in Irelyn," and "Being Zolt." There are some very hot sex scenes but the story quality just isn't there, it drags on and feels contrived and forced. A lot of the dialogue was flat or stilted.
