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 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...

This is the 3rd book in this series and it is Colin Sloan's story, the tattooed, bad boy of the family. Colin is the youngest of the Sloan siblings. While he was young when his father was murdered and his mother was convicted of the crime, Colin dealt with the fallout differently. He ended up hanging with the wrong crowds and become an addict. Now he's been sober for 8 years and longing for a relationship with Elle Mariano, instead of the casual friends-with-benefits thing they have going on. Elle is worried with taking things to the next step with Colin because of her son Alex. Alex's father had been an addict and ended up OD'ing. Even though Colin is sober, Elle doesn't want to have her son around that possibility. As Colin continues to insinuate himself into Elle's world, Elle decides to give Colin a chance. There are a lot of differences between Colin and her dead husband. I really enjoyed their time together. Colin and Elle each brought out good things in each other. They made each other realize that there was a lot more to life than what they were doing and their happy ending was great. I am really enjoying the mystery of Colin's dad's murder and the addition of Marcus. I can't wait to see where this ends up. It's all just so crazy!

## FABULOUS. Great read. Frankly I didn't care for Shannon's story so I almost didn't buy this one. BUT, I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed it. In Shannon's story, I didn't like the hero (Brent). THIS hero however was hot! No....make that SUPER hot! And his dirty talk....let's just say WOW. Also, there was much more intrigue in this book which made it more interesting. Now I will be going back to read Ryan's story since I accidentally read this one first.

‘She was the only kind of intoxication he wanted anymore. He planned to stay hooked on her for all time.’ ~Colin 4.5 stars I'm addicted to the friends-to-lovers trope, and this one certainly delivered! I connected with Elle and Colin immediately. They were both so likable and chose to be in service to others, Elle as a community center counselor and Colin as a volunteer. Both knew about the negative consequences of addiction and had made certain life style changes to cope. And I loved that these two had a lot of fun together before their dynamic was further complicated by the reopened murder investigation of Colin's father, Thomas Paige. Writing style: 3rd person Cover: More purple, one of my favorite colors. And I love the tattoo! Favorite bits: Their 'celebrations' and dates were extremely sexy and fun. Elle and Colin both had cool tattoos that symbolized important growth moments. Elle’s mantra was ‘Rise above it.’ It's simple yet powerful. The epilogue's ending topped the previous novel's ending and left me shaking my head in pure astonishment. One of my favorite moments: “It’s okay,” he said. “You don’t have to have it all figured out. You don’t have to be fearless all the time. Just be with me.” “I want to be with you. I want to be fearlessly in love with you.” ♥ I'm officially caught up with this steamy and suspenseful series. Now the waiting begins anew. What happens after the bombshell revelation in the epilogue will be revealed in Michael Sloan's novel, Sinful Love (Sinful Nights #4), available on March 28, 2016.

This is the third book in this series and I like how well they have tied together. There is a mystery linking them together along with their individual love stories. The sex is smoking hot and I think a Sloan brother could show up in one of my own fantasies. Just preordered the 4th book. Can't wait for March to get here!

This was so freaking awesome! It's my new favorite in the Sinful Nights series to date. Loved Colin and Elle's story! This was seriously great. I was pulled in right from the beginning. It starts out with a major bang and wow! fans self! It was nice and hot to say the least! I loved getting to know Colin and Elle. They were fantastic characters. Nice build up to learning all about them and their backgrounds. Loved the development of their relationship, from the steamy to the emotional. Very well written with a great pace. I LOVED that there was more development in the overall storyline that's taking place throughout the series. Drama, mystery, intrigue... it's all so captivating and I was hanging on very detail. Loved all the ends and outs - I am totally hooked! I thought the overlap between the Sinful Desire epilogue (book 2) and this story was so clever. My perspective of Marcus totally changed and I really loved getting to know him, his history, and how everything played out. All the other characters were woven in well and I thought they added a lot to the story. Fantastic writing with great details, it created a movie playing out in my head. Loved this from the passionate times to the intense times. Excellent read! I loved how Colin and Elle's happily ever after played out. And the epilogue that pertains to the overall story - bam! Did NOT see that coming. That's an awesome twist, I can't wait to see what happens next! Complimentary copy received for honest review.

Being bad has never looked so good. Sinful Longing is my favorite to date within the Sinful Nights series. Elle and Colin weren't fooling anyone. Together they were sex on a stick. They pushed each other to experience new things and development more as a couple and as individuals. But it wouldn't be realistic if there were no problems to overcome. Outside forces such as long withheld secrets, insecurities and the arena of public opinion provided some major roadblocks. I received an ARC of Sinful Longing by Lauren Blakely in exchange for an honest review.

Collin and Elle burn up from the very first sentence to the last! But this story isn't all about seduction, Lauren Blakely has us sitting at the edge of our seats waiting to find out more about the Sloan family saga.
