ABOUT SINFUL LONGING:
He’s the inked brother. The one you’re wondering about. The bad boy of the family.
Colin Sloan has a past. He’s done things he’s not proud of, but he’s living differently now. Making changes in his life. Working hard, working out harder, and trying to win over one woman. He’s utterly crazy about Elle Mariano, and though the sex is epic, their friends-with-benefits arrangement just isn’t cutting it anymore. He wants all of her, and is determined to prove he’s what she needs in her life.
Elle is fiery, loyal, and in major lust with Colin Sloan. He’s everything she craves in a man — smart, sexy, kind — and a rock star between the sheets. But his past hits too close to home for her, and the people she has to protect. There isn’t room in her life for a relationship with Colin. Especially when she’s forced to keep a secret that could tear his family apart…
SINFUL LONGING REVIEW :

~ 4 For the Love of Socks Stars ~
Holy Cow!!!! What an ending!!! Lauren has stepped up her game when it comes to suspense. She definitely left me hanging with this one. Lauren is truly a master when it comes to giving us passion, suspense, mystery and romance in her stories.
Sinful Longing is the 3rd book in Lauren’s Sinful Nights series. This series is a romantic suspense series. Each of these books are about a new couple but the storyline is a continuing one, so it is not recommended to read these books out of order. I think you would be lost or confused if you did.
The Sinful Nights series is about the Sloan family (Shannon, Ryan, Colin and Michael) and their love interests, but it is also about solving some old haunts when it comes to the murder of their father 18 years ago. The mysterious storyline begins in Sweet Sinful Nights (Book 1) and Sinful Desire (Book 2) and then carries over into this book and will conclude in Sinful Love (Book 4). Some questions are answered in this book, but some new ones are created. I am going to go ahead and label this book a Cliffhanger, because the epilogue will definitely leave you hanging and wanting Michael’s book ASAP!!!! Now that I say that, you don’t have to wait for Sinful Love (Michael’s Book) to be released to read this book. Just know that some new questions are going to arise when you finish reading this book. I know I can’t wait to see how this story will be wrapped up in the final book.
I have to be honest and say this isn’t my favorite out of the three books so far. I just felt something was missing in this story. Now don’t get me wrong the suspenseful storyline is truly what saved this book for me, that and all the spicy scenes 😉 I love where this story is going and that Lauren keeps the reader guessing all the way through. What I had trouble with in this book was the connection between Colin and Elle. It was just missing something. I had a hard time connecting with Elle’s character. As for Colin he is just as dreamy as his brother Ryan and he sure knows how to melt a pair of panties!!!
Colin and Elle’s story is all about taking risks. Elle is a single mother of a 14 year boy and she is a social worker at a community center. That is how Colin and Elle know each other. Colin is a venture capitalist who volunteers at the center. Colin is also a recovering addict and Elle is scared to connect with Colin because her husband died of a drug overdose and Elle watched him spiral out of control. She is afraid of that happening with Colin and she won’t put her son through that again. So to say that they are more like friends with benefits would be an accurate portrayal of their relationship…at least in the beginning. As time moves on and Colin and Elle open up to each other, Elle learns she can trust Colin and he isn’t like her dead husband. But of course things get in their way and Elle is quick to push him away. Will Colin’s risk taking and past come between these two?? You need to read this book to find out.
At the end of Sinful Desire we meet Marcus and he is revealed as the Sloan’s half brother. His mom is their mom also. I liked that we got to know Marcus more in this book and loved the connection she created between him and the Sloan siblings. I am interested in seeing how things will work out after the bomb Marcus drops at the end of the book. It was also great seeing the other couples in this book. We got more Ryan and Sophie in this story and I was thrilled about that because they are my favorite couple of this series. We did get a little bit of a sneak peek at Michael in this book and hints about his past, I am interested to see who his love interest will be.
So I’ll leave you with this….even though this isn’t my favorite, you still need to READ this series/book!!! You won’t be sorry and I can be sure that you will become addicted to Ms. Blakely’s writing like I am. I look forward to every book she releases and I always walk away with a smile on my face and wanting more of her books!!!
SINFUL LONGING EXCERPT (Sexy)
Why, oh why, did he have to be off-limits? Why did he have to fall squarely under the heading of do not pass go? It was truly fucking unfair because no one had ever made her feel like this. Like she was high on a touch. Like she was deliciously dizzy from a kiss. She wanted him so badly, and not just physically. She wanted more of him, but her emotions had to be cordoned off tonight. She told herself to let go for this one last night, let go of everything but the way he made her feel so alive.
“Close your eyes,” he told her firmly, and she let her eyelids drift closed, giving in to sense. Giving in to touch.
Maybe she was selfish. Or maybe she just wanted to feel a little something that was solely for her tonight. Nobody could deliver that better than this man.
He was kneeling behind her. She couldn’t even see him. But she was keenly aware of his presence as he dipped his mouth closer to her skin. His lips fluttered over her sensitive neck once more. She ached, pulsing between her legs as he kissed her all over. A snapping sound fell on her ear, and her hair spilled from its clip onto her neck as he undid her twist.
“Oh God,” she gasped, because she knew what was next.
His hands dove into her hair.
Fuck me now. Just fuck me now.
He’d discovered all her secrets the very first time he’d kissed her and explored her body. He’d read her responses as if it were his top-secret assignment to know every inch of her skin, then he’d remembered and sought them out, focusing on all the places that drove her wild. The back of her knee. The inside of her arm. Her neck, the gateway to her pleasure.
She was hopeless with him. He’d unlocked the code to all her desires, and he used it masterfully.
He threaded his talented fingers through her curls, gripping, and she moved with him, moaned for him, as if she were the notes he played on a cello. He was the musician; she was the instrument. He played and he played and he played, and her body sang for him, a song of pure desire. Of heat. Of want.
He twisted her hair once around his hand, pulling it to the side, and she tilted her head that way, giving him more room to devour her neck with kisses, like he was starved for her. He lavished pleasure all over her, leaving her drenched in sensation from soft, fluttery whispers along her neck, territorial kisses that claimed her as his, all mixed with the whiskery rub of his stubble. His ever-present scruff was trimmed to mere millimeters but long enough to brush against her skin with every kiss, bringing the intoxicating mix of soft and hard, of rough and tender. He rubbed his chin along her shoulder, and she arched into him.
He snaked an arm over her shoulders, grazing along her breasts as he traveled down her belly, his fingertips dancing against her waist.
“You like what I do to you.” It wasn’t a question.
“So incredibly much,” she said, as he flicked the tip of his tongue across her shoulder. When he kissed her like this, and he touched her like that, she wanted to give herself to him fully. The way he wanted. The way he’d asked for. A voice in the back of her head started to argue with her, to warn her what happened when she made choices in heated moments like this, and she tensed for an instant.
But this was different. This was a moment she was choosing to relish. A night of pleasure.
His hand reached the crest of her hip and her brain went dormant. He traced the top of her panties through the fabric of her dress. “Show me how much you like giving in. Show me how wet you are.”
She yanked up her skirt, bunching it near her waist, giving him instant access to the V of her legs. Even with her panties on, there was no hiding her arousal.
He groaned huskily. “Look at you, Elle. Look at how wet you get. For me.” His fingers glided up the soft flesh of her thighs, and she parted her legs for him. Grazing the wet panel, he whispered, “I want to feel that all over my dick. I want this sweet wetness all the fuck over me. Tell me how much you want me inside you right now. Tell me.”
“Oh God,” she panted. “Yes, God yes. I want that. I want it so much.”
“You want it?”
“You,” she said quickly, correcting her error. “I want you so much.”
