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.
After reading Lauren Blakely's previous series', I was looking forward to starting this new one and I have to say, I loved Shannon and Brent's story of second chance love. The characters were easy to fall in love with, the story was easy to follow and it kept my interest throughout. It was another brilliant start to a new series that left wanting more.
They kissed like it was a first time, and a last time, and like it was all time.
They kissed like two people who wanted to climb into each other's skin,
to smash into the other person. There were no doubts. No questions.
She had to feel everything he felt. She had to want a second chance, too.
Shannon and Brent were once college sweethearts who were madly in love but sadly things didn't work out for the couple first time around. Ten years had passed and the couple were reunited. Once Shannon and Brent were together again it was like they had never been apart. The last ten years fell away with the blink of an eye and the couple's feelings for each other were reignited. But so much had happened in the time that they were apart. Would it be that easy to just pick up where they left things so long ago? So many things needed to be forgiven and forgotten between the couple. Shannon and Brent's second chance of love was not going to happen easily.
Now, he had the the opportunity for a second chance. The game was on,
and he was going balls to the wall to win his woman back.
Brent and Shannon were both fabulous characters, I enjoyed watching the couple rebuilding their relationship. They were both so sweet and funny together and made such a cute couple. Brent was determined not to make the same mistakes that he had in the past and he was going to do anything to make Shannon his girl for good. The couple's love for one another had never really gone away so it wasn't long before Shannon and Brent were inseparable, grabbing every spare moment they could to see each other again. Not only were Shannon and Brent cute together but they also made red hot lovers. Some of the nookie that this pair got up to had me running for a cold shower!! Lauren always writes smokin' hot sex scenes and once again, she did not disappoint!!
I've fucked a comedian, and a big man on campus, but never this gorgeous man in a suit.
So fuck me here on your desk as the man you are now.
Overall this was a good story that I enjoyed but there was one thing that I was disappointed with. I felt that the story came to an end so quickly and left me with some unanswered questions. I am aware that this is a series but I expected everything that involved Shannon and Brent to be wrapped up in this book but I now realise that I will need to wait for the next book to get some answers. I am assuming that this plot will run throughout the series as the next book involves Shannon's brother so I am looking forward to reading that one and also catching up with Shannon and Brett because I really want to see what their future holds. One thing I love about Lauren Blakely's book is how her characters are interwoven between the series'. I got a few glimpses of Julia and Clay in this book, I loved getting a chance to see how they were doing. Whether you a fan of Lauren Blakely or a newbie to this author, if you enjoy second chance romance, this is well worth the read.
"Sweet Sinful Nights" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️
“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.”
