Soon, he has to have more. All of her -- heart, mind and body.
The only trouble is, he hasn't been honest about how he met her and the dangerous connection he has to her brother.

## STELLAR. This book is fantastic. My favorite of the series so far. Unfortunately, I read these out of order (because these titles are just too similar). As of now, I have one book remaining (Michael) which I will purchase next. Ryan and Sophie had scorching chemistry. And I mean sizzling. And the sex?? Holy crap, it was beyond hot. Jeez, these Sloan's know how to dirty talk. But the star of this book was definitely Sophie. I simply adored this character. Thank you Lauren for writing such an amazing heroine. Strong, smart, beautiful and fun-loving. I am so sick of authors writing plain, plump heroines to be more real. Who wants real? It's fiction. Job well done Ms. Blakely.

This one is even hotter than the first book! What an amazing connection these characters have. Very Passionate. Love the family dynamics, the depth of their relationships. The first book left me on the edge of my seat for book 2. Book 2 has me even more eager for book 3! OUTSTANDING SERIES! The writing is so good & the characters are all easy to connnect with.

Lauren Blakely has a hot hit on her hands. I like this series and the back story of a murder that happened 17 years ago is very intriguing. Haven't been able to put the puzzle pieces together. Can't wait to read the next book in the series. Oh, did I mention Ryan and Sloane are HOT!!! On fire HOT!

This is the second book in the Sinful Nights series. I LOVED this book! This story was about Ryan Sloan, Shannon Sloan's sister. After the craziness of his past family life, Ryan craves control in his life. Imagine his surprise when he sees this gorgeous blond outside of the police department, on his way to meet the detective working on his father's murder case. Ryan is completely captivated and just has to meet his fantasy girl. Sophie Winston was the geeky quiet girl who became a huge success and then she sold off her business. Now Sophie spends her time being a philanthropist but she craves letting go of her control. These two each possessed something the other desperately wanted. The sexual chemistry between these two was off the charts! I loved how Ryan brought out such emotions from Sophie and how she brought out a softer side of Ryan. I really enjoyed the continuation of the mystery behind Ryan's dad's murder. It was great having the detective the case turn out to be Sophie's brother! I just adored this story and these two characters. Their happy ever after was perfect for the two of them! I loved Sophie's addiction to the fruity dresses! Too cute! Overall, another great story and I can't wait to see how this mystery is going to end!

‘Love was a choice, one that sometimes came with rampant uncertainty.’ ~Sophie Minor spoilers alert!!! I quite enjoyed this second full length installment in theSinful Nights series set in current day Vegas. Author Lauren Blakely knows how to write interesting and intelligent characters that aren’t afraid to let their freak flags fly. Sophie and Ryan’s love story was equally flirty, naughty and suspenseful. Writing style: 3rd person Cover Design: I love purple and a bare-chested man, so this cover really does it for me! Favorite bits: The story of how Sophie’s parents met was lovely. As a child of a broken family, I’m always envious of people who grew up with parents that stayed in love. The flirty emails Sophie and Ryan exchanged were so much fun to read, especially Ryan’s email to Sophie containing a picture of Johnny Cash. With a cool name like that, how could his Border Collie dog not be adorable? The strip pool game was very titillating. I didn’t know who to cheer on, but ultimately there really wasn’t a loser to that one, ha! The reopened murder investigation of Ryan’s father had me wildly intrigued. For once, I wasn’t able to guess accurately if Dora Prince, Ryan’s mother – who was sentenced to eighteen years in prison for murdering his father – was truly guilty or innocent as she kept proclaiming. The answer really affected me. And the genuine closeness of both sets of siblings - the Winstons (Sophie and John) and the Sloans (Ryan, Shannon, Colin and Michael) - was so very cool. I couldn’t help wondering why my big sister and I continue to fail at having a similar dynamic. Unfortunately, some of us in the real world have to turn to our surrogate family members instead of the ones given to us by genetics. C’est la vie as the French say. Favorite quotes: I loved the pie eating/discussion scene between Ryan and his grandmother. “Is it even worth it?” “Is it?” she echoed. “Only you know the answer to that. But Ryan, you think you have to manage everything perfectly because your life spun out of control when you were younger. All our lives did. Here’s the thing you need to see–you can’t control everything. And you also don’t have to. The only things you can take charge of are the choices you make, and if Miss Peach Pie is a choice you want to make, then you should let her in.” And of course, I had a big fat grin of delight on my face when I read Ryan’s admission below. “You’re everything I never knew I wanted, and now I can’t live without you.” Up next for me in this series is Sinful Longing (Sinful Nights, #3), Colin and Elle’s friends-to-lovers tale. I’m a sucker for that romance trope. As luck would have it, I already have the e-book downloaded and ready for my reading pleasure.

The only way Ryan Sloan can keep his life in order is to exercise rigid control. In his business, in his relationships, over his emotions and even of his secrets. It's the only way he knows how to, to avoid his life spinning out of order like it did in the past. Unfortunately, the past won't stay buried and the reopening of his father's murder investigation threatens everything he's built so far. Until he sets eyes on the most gorgeous woman he's ever seen and now he's facing a threat of a different kind. Sophie Winston became financially successful at a very young age and has dedicated her life to philanthropic endeavors since selling her company. However, success has eluded her in one place: the bedroom. Sophie is a smart, hardworking and take charge kind of woman but she would love to give up all of that control behind closed doors. Unfortunately, finding someone to give up that control to hasn't been easy. Until she sets eyes on the man in the green tie. And what was meant to be a few nights of pleasure grows into something more. I enjoyed SINFUL DESIRE so much because this is what romance is about - meeting that one person that satisfies your every need. For Ryan, it's the need to dominate and for Sophie, the need to be dominated. And they fit together so perfectly, like two halves of a whole. But beyond the physical, Sophie with her beautiful face, gorgeous body and smart brain is changing Ryan on the inside. Ryan is letting down the walls he's kept up for so long and remembering how wonderful his childhood was before it all went bad. And his story is enough to make you hurt: for the thirteen year old boy forced to carry secrets that were not his to bear and the damage that forced silence has done to him even as a grown man; for the boy and man who loved his mother so much that he believed in her professed innocence, only to discover that it was all lies. Everything is not fun and games however, because Ryan's inability to share his past with Sophie has the potential to destroy what's growing between them and when Sophie discovers Ryan's dark secrets, will she be willing to stick with him? Sophie is a math geek and she trusts numbers because they always add up correctly, so having to go on faith is very terrifying for her. I love Sophie. With her retro sense of style and her bubbly and flirtatious personality, she's exactly what Ryan needs and it doesn't hurt that they have an electrifying chemistry. I love that in spite of her success, she enjoys just being with Ryan and she's happy to take care of Ryan in the simplest but endearing ways. Ryan is quite dreamy. Wickedly charming, confident, gorgeous and successful, he really is the whole package and I love that he was not threatened by Sophie's success. I can't not say this: SINFUL DESIRE is hot and I love Ryan and Sophie's story because what starts out as an exploration of their mutual carnal desires becomes a forever love story.

A hot and sexy read that will leave you in a puddle of lust.

I love Lauren Blakely's books and when I first read Sweet Sinful Nights, I fell in love with the characters. But there was just something about Ryan that endeared him to me and I just couldn't wait to get my hands on his story. So, understandably, I was out of this world happy when I found out that Sinful Desires is going to be about him and the woman of his heart :) Of course, I read the prequel, Sweet Desire, and I was even more intrigued. And I wasn't disappointed. The story is fast paced, filled with pantie melting hotness, desire, tenderness and romance and peppered with secrets, suspense and danger. :) Ryan Sloan is a deliciously sexy and dominant alpha who lived through a tragedy as a teenager. A tragedy that shook the foundation of his young life and he and his sibling were pulled into a whirlwind that still puts their lives on unstable ground and leaves him with trust issues a mile long. The walls around his heart are close to impossible to break and he doesn't give the chance to the women in his life to even try - they don't even get past the third date. Well, that all changes the moment he sees Sophie Winston. She is like a ray of sunshine for his dark and untrusting soul. In the span of weeks he finds himself opening to her and falling unconditionally in love. Even sharing secrets he hasn't even told his siblings. Sophie is simply gorgeous. Not only on the outside, but also on the inside. She is smart, loving and compassionate. She dedicates her life to helping others and I have to say that I loved her character. But in her personal life she's been unsuccessful to find the one thing she craves - a dominant man wh ocan play her body with ease and bring her unimaginable pleasure. But at the same time to be tender and loving and gift her with the relationship she's always dreamed of, the kind of forever love her parents had. She finds all that in Ryan. But with his troubled past and the secrets he keeps, their relationship is quite rocky from the start. But in the bedroom, or in her car, on the table, or pretty much every surface they can think of, their bodies are in sync and create the most beautiful music each one of them has ever experienced. While they navigate through the difficulties thrown their way, they build a solid foundation for their relationship that can withstand everything :) So be prepared, this story is of the charts hot. Which of course is not a surprise considering how incredibly drool worthy Ryan is. He is like your dream BBF with his dirty mouth, dominant streak and incredible prowess in bed. So yep, be ready for some temperature increasing reading with a sprinkle of romance and topped with some suspense (there are just too many secrets to make this book a simple hot romantic story ;) ) And to add to that, you will also glad a glimpse of the other Sloan siblings. I am definitely intrigued by Collin and I can't wait to read his and Elle's story in the next book in the series :) So get your #oneclick finger working and start reading :) You won't regret it ;) This review was originally posted at Living In Our Own Story Book Blog. I received an ARC of the book in exchange of an honest review.

Past experiences have shaped Ryan and Sophie into the people they are. For Ryan a traumatic event has left him seeking answers and incapable of trust. Sophie presents a poised, confident and polished image but is haunted by self-doubt and anxieties left over from her younger years. Each has a problem relinquishing control. Doing so makes them feel week and vulnerable. When old demons resurface and closely guarded truths are revealed each has to decide if love is worth risking it all. Sinful Desire was given to me in exchange for an honest review. An enigmatic trip into sensual delight.

4.5 out of 5 stars Such an awesome story! Loved the ends and outs as everything developed as well as the underlying intrigue that carries across the series. Sophie was loving and saucy! I loved that she was so understanding and strong. Ryan was fantastic. Love his development and growth throughout. He was so sweet and attentive. I think Ryan is one of the most commanding alphas I've ever read. Definitely the naughtiest character by Lauren Blakely for sure. Ryan was so powerful which translated into serious heat that made for some dirty, raw, filthy, sexy time fun! These two together had so much chemistry and it made for a great pull between the two. I loved their innuendo and playfulness. I really enjoyed the build to their story and the development, it had a great pace. I thought there was a nice balance between the emotional and physical part of their relationship. They had some ups and downs and I liked how it played out but sometimes felt like Sophie was a bit to agreeable. There is bits of mystery and intrigue as well as some drama, I love that aspect and wish there would have been more of it. Questions were answered, awesome twist at the end, but it's far from over. Sophie and Ryan have closure in this story but that underlying storyline ends with a bit of a cliffhanger making you want the next book. I love Ryan's siblings. How supportive they are of one another but also the fun moments they share. More info was learned about Colin and I'm super curious about him. His story is next, can't wait! Fantastic story! Super hot, sexy times. Another winner from Lauren Blakely! She’s a must read author for me. Complimentary copy received for honest review.

I am so in love with this book! Each and every Sloan sibling's story is better than the one before it. Ryan and Sophie are absolutely combustible! Their story is all at once sweet and scorching. Heartfelt and fantastically decadent! There were a lot of really great moments between these two lovers and I will not give away any spoilers but I will say that the part with the pattern had me sobbing . So beautiful! I LOVE THIS COUPLE!!! Thanks to Lauren for yet another satisfyingly wonderful story. - Kemmy R.
