Overview

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...

Just when I thought I had Lauren Blakely and her books figured out, she goes and ups her writing to yet another level. With Sweet Sinful Nights, yes we get the naughty hero. Yes we get the out-of-control, off-the-charts, hot sex. And yes we get the touching reunion of two lovers who find themselves face-to-face after 10 years, and the heartbreaking journey to find their way back to one another. But what I didn't expect was the mystery story-line beneath the love story. And that is what made this book so flipping exquisite. Brent and Shannon. Oh my, what a couple. The way they see each other for the first time after so much time apart was perfectly written. From the look on Brent’s face to the satisfaction on Shannon’s, I was as mesmerized as they were. Their love had never really died for either of them and now that they will find themselves working together, it’s anyone’s guess whether those not-quite extinguished sparks can fan that flame once again. The pure electricity, the fiery need that both Brent and Shannon emit, literally had my e-reader smoking. Again. But this is Lauren Blakely we’re talking about. She takes no prisoners and almost has me blushing at least once while reading her books. She doesn’t hold back and the sex never disappoints. Brent and Shannon have some of THE most panty-melting scenes ever written and yet it leaves me wanting more. That my friends is the gift of a truly talented writer. But what I always enjoy most and I’ve used it as my tag-line for these books I adore, is that Lauren Blakely writes sex with heart. That although I know that these two will get down and dirty and often, underneath it all is the pure love and affection her characters feel for one another. Brent has always wanted to protect his girl and now that she is a grown-up woman, he continues to want to not only be by her side, but is willing to risk it all to stay hers. Permanently. A long ago crime that is still as mysterious as it was when it occurred manages to stay in the picture just as our couple is finding their way back to each other. With past hurts now out in the open, both Brent and Shannon fight hard to move forward even with this horrific event still hanging over Shannon’s head. Watching Brent offer not only his love but his full-fledged support no matter what the end result had me swooning yet again over a Nichols man. Oh and a guest-appearance by brother Clay had my ovaries obliterated once more. Having both side by side is one heady combination! What I leave you all is with this: if you want a sexy, passionate yet extremely touching read, then Sweet Sinful Nights is for you. I can’t recommend this book highly enough. The author’s books are like crack for me: addicting yet completely heartwarming at the same time. This is a standalone but the next book in the series will continue an aspect of Shannon’s story with her brother Ryan taking the lead this time. A huge 5+ stars!!

I love everything Lauren Blakely writes and I think Brent just trumped his brother Clay as my favorite leading man she has written. I am excited to see how the rest of the series plays out!

Oh the intrigue. This series is going to be brilliant. Lauren Blakely introduces us to the Paige-Prince family. Three brothers and one sister with darkness in their past, forcing them to adopt the new name of Sloan. This first book is Shay Sloan’s story (A.K.A. Shannon Paige-Prince). Ten years ago, Shannon was engaged to her dream man, Brent Nichols. They were both on the cusp of starting married life and bright, new careers when Brent made the most monumental mistake of his life, losing Shannon in the process. Ten years later, she dances back into his life as gorgeous and vibrant as ever. He wants her back. He never wanted to lose her. Now he just has to convince her that he’s worth the second chance. Lauren Blakely teases the reader relentlessly with the building sexual tension in this story, but in doing so she pieces this broken relationship back together making it a truly strong bond. These two are the best of friends and never should have parted. High emotions, desperation and loose tongues cause so much avoidable harm. I found this couple to be so compelling. They are both high stakes players in the entertainment industry and the passion between them is undeniable, but they have a sweet connection that is rare. Shannon’s life has been repeatedly battered by tragedy, but she keeps on fighting. Brent is her sunshine. She is his inspiration, his everything. It’s hard for her to trust anyone, considering her past. When the secrets of that past muddy the waters and challenge Brent’s unscathed life, he has to prove that he has matured and can handle the burden with her. There is never a dull moment between the intrigue and the building sexual tension ready to ignite at any opportune moment, I was absolutely enthralled. The perfect blend of romance, deep friendship and burning passion. Bring on Sinful Desire! 5.5 Flares. *ARC generously provided in exchange for an honest review* Cheers

Lauren Blakely, this is really good. I started reading Sweet Sinful Nights and had to force myself to put it down and go to sleep. The next morning I picked up right where I left off. Sweet Sinful Nights is a story of prideful mistakes, secrets, anger, pain and second chances. I loved how Brent did whatever it took to get Shannon to hear him out. Would love a guy who would be willing to humble himself and admit he was wrong. Lauren Blakely, I loved your book and am sure others will too.

What a wonderful story! Sweet, loving and oh so sexy and hot! I loved it! I loved Brent and Shannon! The details of their past, them reconnecting, and moving forward. It was laid out so well and I was pulled in from the beginning. Excellent details and pace. Brent and Shannon are both great characters. Loved Shannon and the strength she has had to have and loved learning all the ends and outs about her. Brent was so awesome, I loved his playful humor but even more I loved what a sweet, genuine man he was. I love the reconnection and forgiveness aspect of the story. It made for some really emotional, honest, and raw moments for Brent and Shannon. These two together had fantastic chemistry, that pull towards one another that makes for super hot times. To say they were on fire is an understatement! A note about the hotness without giving anything away... There was a serious build to the main course. There was just so much passion, it was incredibly sensual, hot, and lust filled. When they finally getting together... just WOW! After reading some of the scenes I needed to get a glass of cold water because whew! It was way to hot (in a good way!)! Shannon brothers were great and I loved meeting them. I hope they all get their own stories. I like how the other characters from other Lauren Blakely novels came into play as well. There was a suspense element underlying it all that kept me in my toes and I can't wait to see where it goes. Yes, there is a cliffhanger but I feel it's a mild one that will lead into the next story. Shannon and Brent have a full story in this book with their happily ever after but I am excited to find out what will happen in the secondary story that's taking place. This was an excellent read. Fantastic story, great pace, I was hooked from start to finish! Complimentary copy received for honest review.

Shannon is the one that Brent let get away. A woman who was everything to him. A woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. A woman who walked out the door the day he was foolish enough to issue her an ultimatum. Brent was everything to Shannon. He was "the one" until that fateful day when he broke her heart. Ten years later, Shannon is a successful business woman who has her own company and Brent has gone from a comedian to the owner of a few night clubs. By chance Brent's business partner meets with Shannon to hire her company for one of their clubs. Brent arrives home in time from a business trip for the meeting and shows up never knowing that Shannon was the person his partner was dealing with. When they meet, the feelings are still there, but Shannon has hardened her heart against Brent. He broke her heart once and she has no plans of that happening again. Follow the story to find out if Brent has changed and is capable of being the man Shannon needs, or if some things never change and they are destined to be apart. Lauren Blakely has written another great story with characters you will fall in love with. I highly recommend this book.

Oil and vinegar, Light and Dark, Ying and Yang ... you get my drift. Brent and Shannon come opposite childhood experiences, yet their pull to each other is undeniable. They are both headstrong and assertive, which means there are a lot of fights followed by scorching hot sex. Ten years after their heart-wracking break-up, they meet without realizing they are walking into a business meeting that will change their lives. Brent will not let her go again... she is the only woman for him. Shannon still loves him but wants him to apologize from the heart. So now we have the crux of the story. In Lauren Blakely's heart sweeping style, prepare to be blown away by a courtship to end all courtships. These two characters are passionate beyond control. When they are in each other's proximity, the fire grows to a blaze and the sparks are shooting everywhere. This is the beginning of the series that appears to have secrets dying to be unearthed. The past is fraught with suspense for Shannon and her brothers. Their father's murder appears to have been solved, but their mother still insists there is more to the crime. I can hardly wait to find out who the mysterious man in Buick is.

This is a spinoff series from the Seductive Nights series. This story is about Brent Nichols, Clay's brother....yes, that Clay! ;) Brent was engaged to Shannon Paige-Prince 10 years ago....and after a bone-headed move, they split. Now, fate has brought Brent and Shannon back together. Brent is a successful comedian and has opened up comedy clubs all over the world. Shannon is now a successful choreographer who owns her own company that employs dancers all over the world. Shannon is working out a deal to get her dancers working at his clubs and Brent doesn't even know it is her because her company name is Shay Productions, and his right-hand man, James is the one meeting with her. Imagine both of their surprises when they meet at the initial meeting! It's very obvious these two still have very strong emotional feelings for each other. I just loved how Brent had to win her heart all over again. The chemistry between these two was wonderful. The path these two had to take to get to their happy ending was worth it. The added suspenseful story line of Shannon's past history is a great addition. I can't wait to see where this story is going to go. Overall, another great book from Lauren Blakely!

It's not very often that I don't finish a book. This is maybe my 2nd or 3rd time, but I honestly could not continue reading this story. The story started out great, with a good premise, but went downhill fast for me. My problem was with the heroine, she was just not likeable at all and came across as completly selfish. Brent has been the bad guy for 10 years because in her mind he chose his career over her (although be begged her repeatly to go with him). She never once stopped to acknowledge the fact that she did the same thing to him! Now, skip ahead 10 years. (This is not a spoiler) they reunite and she's still selfish. He is killing himself to show her how much he still loves her. She gets hot and bothered eveytime they kiss...he gets her off...she pulls back with "I'm not ready to have sex with you yet". Rinse and repeat. She's not ready yet, but she is totally ok with getting off and leaving him hanging. I liked Brent but never warmed up to Shannon. After about 2/3 of the book, I had to walk away. I've only read one other book by this author..."Big Rock" and I really liked it. Maybe I'll give this author another chance but not with this series.

I usually love Blakely but this isn't a favorite. Characters were pretty good. Not a bad story line. IT was written well. Just too many things left untied and confusing. I know she is trying to set up the next book but it wasn't enough to make me want to continue reading.

## Just OK for me. This hero kind of rubbed me the wrong way. I'm not sure what it was about him, but something bugged me. Maybe because he kept walking away, maybe because he was always joking around. I don't really know. And the heroine went back to him so easily after all the pain he caused. That bugged me, too. Also, I expected some suspense or at least intrigue regarding the murder. But that wasn't to be. Frankly, I had to skim a lot. I don't think I'll read again.

There's a reason why Lauren Blakely is one of my favorite authors. She knows how to steam up the pages. She has the ability to grab you from the very first page and has you turning the pages to see how the story develops. Sweet Sinful Nights is filled with secrets, angst, romance, passion, heartbreak, and of course... incredible sex. If you're looking for that hot, sexy book that will make your toes curl and have you gasping for more... this is the book for you.

Review: *** I received an ARC copy of Sweet SInful Nights from InkSlingerPR for an honest review*** Wow! Tell me, are my eyeballs still intact? I don’t know how they could be because Shay (Shannon) and Brent are on fire! There are so many wonderful points that made me fall in love with this couple, hate them alternatively, cry with them, look at my husband and think why aren’t you like Brent, then look in the mirror and say why aren’t you like Shannon, though I may not make much sense as I write this review. What couple hasn’t had that wonderful ultimatum, it’s either blah blah or me, me, me. I am so happy that Shannon gave Brent the proverbial finger and left when Brent did that to her during college. Young jerk that he was. Jump ahead ten years and each has attained success in the fields that tore them apart, then in many ways, brought them back together. The author has woven a story that could be about the neighbor down the street, or one you’ve wondered what if… but just as the characters have to realize, playing the what if game is harmful to your happiness. Shay and Brent realize it many years later; time has passed, their love and passion for one another has not. The mistakes of the past are forgiven, but not forgotten. Both wear their scars as badges of where they have been and where they want to go. I cried when Shay thought back to an unfortunate miscarriage. I cried when she had to relive it again to tell Brent. The characters were real to me. Shay’s brothers Michael, Ryan and Colin made me think of my pain in the behind brother whom I love so very much. The realities of what is happening to her mother in prison made me confused, but all I can say is I exclaimed out loud, “Oh no she didn’t,” at the end of the book. Here I am at the end of my review and I haven’t even talked about the smokin’ hot sex! Lauren Blakely sure as heck knows how to heat up the page and make you want to fall into her books and be the heroine. Even with all the trauma, pain and sorrow, I wanted to be Shay with a sexy, hot man like Brent all over me! Whew! Just thinking about it makes me all hot and bothered. I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT INSTALLMENT OF THE SERIES!

I don't even know how to start this review. Have you ever read a book that touched a piece of your heart that isn't reached very often, latching on and holding on with everything it has? This book did that to me. Brent and Shannon were in love. 10 years ago, it all came crashing down around them by careless young, selfish decisions. And here we are, 10 years later, and they find themselves in the same place at the same time. Their love never died. Their passion never dulled. Their desire never quenched by anyone else. Only them. There was no tap dancing around it. It was in your face "You're Mine" love. Like any other Lauren Blakely book this one made me laugh, cry, and even walk away when our hero did something stupid. ;) But when I returned to my tablet, Brent redeemed himself beautifully. There's also plenty of sexy scenes and dirty talkin' for another Nichols man. Brent proves he's just as dirty and feisty as his older brother, Clay, and that he loves just as fierce. Grab this book. You won't regret it.

Brent and Shannon are in love, but one fateful day breaks their relationship apart. Each goes their separate way and as fate would have it, they meet up again and their love is hotter than before. Now if only they can see their way back to each other. I wasn’t sure about this story at first. I changed my mind real quick and realized Brent and Shannon’s love was the story. How hot their love burns could start a bed on fire. Love how Lauren writes their love scenes and how their relationship develops. A background story develops and ends Sweet Sinful Nights in a perfect place for book two in the series. This story burns hot and has adult language ;) I was gifted this book in return for an honest review.
