ABOUT SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS:
A sexy, suspenseful new romance novel from Lauren Blakely, author of the New York Times Bestselling Seductive Nights series….
She was the one who got away…
Ten years ago, Brent Nichols let the love of his life slip through his fingers. It’s his greatest regret, especially since she’s all but disappeared. But when the gorgeous and captivating woman walks into his life unexpectedly, he’s determined to win her back. Whatever it takes, he won’t make the same mistake twice.
Easier said than done…
Shannon Paige has hardened her heart to the man she was once engaged to be married to. After the way he left, and after the hell she’s been through with her checkered family, there’s no way she’s letting him into her life again. The problem is, the second she sees him, he’s more handsome and charming than before. And she’s torn between wanting to fight with him and wanting to sleep with him – maybe both. Soon they fall into each other’s arms, consumed with a desire that burns through the years.
But if these two fiery lovers are going to have a real second chance at this kind of intense, passionate, bone-deep love, he’ll have to give her his whole heart, and she’ll have to give up all the secrets from her messy past.
And that messy past is about to spill over into her carefully constructed present…
SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS is book one in SINFUL NIGHTS, a four-book series. Each book will follow a new couple.
SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS EXCERPT
“My friend Ally showed me a video she saw on Facebook,” Shannon began. “It’s this clip of a girl who grinds on her boyfriend in public while his hand is under her skirt, and they don’t even try to hide that he’s fingering her and getting her off.”
“I like getting you off,” Brent said with a naughty glint in his brown eyes.
“You cannot resist segueing back to dirty talk when I’m telling you a story.”
“I’m so sorry,” he said, placing his palms together. “The story was about a guy making a girl come. Forgive me for thinking about making you come. It’s only my favorite thing in the entire world to do.”
She shot him a tell me more look.
“It’s a hobby I once practiced a few times a day,” he added. “One I’m very interested in taking up again.”
A ribbon of warmth spread through her chest, both from the suggestion of one of her favorite activities, too, but also from the way he was so quick on his toes, so fast with a joke. The man had always made her laugh.
“Anyway, back to the video. So the funny part is they had no clue they’d been caught on camera, even though they were totally obvious. They thought they were being quiet and sneaky when he was trying to make her come.”
“I could make you come quietly,” he said with an easy shrug of his shoulder. “I can make you come loudly, too. I can make you come in pretty much any way.”
She scoffed. Not because it was untrue, but because he was so damn sure of himself. “Confident much?”
“Yeah, I am. I have the track record to prove it. You’re pretty much the only class I aced in college.”
She laughed, looking down at her lap. He was too much sometimes. “Straight As, Brent?”
“Hell no. Higher. I earned A-pluses across the board in your pleasure.”
She rolled her eyes. “You’re relentless.”
He leaned forward across the table, flashing her that cocky grin she’d loved so much. “When it comes to delivering multiple orgasms for you, yes. Relentless is precisely what I am.”
SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS REVIEW
* A review copy was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review *
~ 5 Sinful Stars ~
What can I say…Lauren Blakely is AMAZING!!! She has a way of creating a story that is not only hot and steamy, but also a wonderful story. Her books just suck me in and keep me interested all the way through. I just knew that anyone related to Clay Nichols was going to be swoon worthy and Brent Nichols didn’t disappoint!!!!
Sweet Sinful Nights is the first book in a spin-off series from Lauren’s Seductive Nights series. I will say that this book had a lot to live up to following the Seductive Nights Series and Clay Nichols….I absolutely LOVED that series and all the characters. Well she is off to a great start with this new series. Brent definitely lived up to the Nichols name. What I did find different with this book was that there wasn’t as much sex in this book. Brent and Shannon’s story was more of a finding each other again and each of them redeeming themselves. Now don’t get me wrong….there was definitely some major steam in this book, but it wasn’t a primary focus in this story like in her Seductive Nights series. I was a little disappointed with that, but it by no means took away from my enjoyment of this book and these characters.
Sweet Sinful Nights is a sexy, suspenseful, swoony second chance love story between Brent and Shannon. Brent is Clay’s brother and Shannon is the girl he was engaged to back in college. The story starts out with Brent and Shannon in college and happily in love and chasing after their dreams. When one fatal decision on Brent’s part separates these two lovers for 10 years. Fast forward to the present time and 10 years have passed. Brent has never forgotten Shannon but had no way of contacting her….that is until he goes to a business meeting with someone named Shay Sloan. Low and behold Shay is Shannon and these two are thrust back into all the past hurt and love they shared. This book is a journey of love, hope, happiness and the ever elusive HEA. I loved watching these two open themselves up again and learning to love and trust each other.
But this book is more than just their journey to a HEA. Lauren has added the element of suspense built off of something that happened in the past with Shannon’s parents. This book only briefly touched on the suspenseful part of the storyline, I am hoping we get even more with Ryan’s story….Sinful Desire!!!
This book is just as sinful, sexy and addicting as the Seductive Nights series and I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the books. Sweet Sinful Nights is a Standalone, second chance love story with a HEA. I do believe that even though each of the books in this series will be about a different couple, I have a feeling the storyline will be intertwined and that these books should be read in order!!
As always…I would 100% recommend this book to everyone. It has a little bit of everything to make any reader happy. Plus it is a Lauren Blakely book….you really can’t go wrong when picking up a book by this author!!!
