A passionate, emotional, sexy-as-sin romance novel from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…
I live my life by a few simple rules — let no one in, trust only my family, and don’t ever spend more than three nights with a woman.
Those are easy enough to abide by when I meet gorgeous, captivating and absolutely brilliant Sophie Winston. Who wants nothing more than to explore all her sinful desires with me after dark. Desires that put me firmly in control in the bedroom.
That works for me — as long as I can keep the secrets I need to protect. Not only the ones about my family, but the ones about how she’s interwoven into my dangerous past.
But the night she learns the truth, I’m faced with a stark new choice — let her go or give up control of my heart for the first time ever.
Trouble is, the past is chasing both of us right now and it just caught up.
A match made in heaven
I’m just loving these Sloane siblings, and although you don’t have to have listened to book 1 in the Sinful Men series, it sure is best if you do. The story carries on from My Sinful Desire with Shannon’s younger brother Ryan being the next in line to lose his heart. The story still centres around the murder 18 years prior, and has Ryan falling for the lead detective’s younger sister, Sophie. Ryan has been a vault, locked up tight, keeping secrets from his family, the police, everybody, for over 18 years, secrets that a 13 year old boy should never be asked to keep. Herein lies the problem, and the reason why Ryan cannot open up, he has so many trust issues, and as you can imagine, that opens up a whole other can of worms with his possible relationship with Sophie. Sophie who is an open book, who doesn’t understand lies and secrets, after all she’s never had to keep a secret. More fantastic characters in this addictive story, with super alpha, super sexy, super dirty talking Ryan, and super rich, super take charge, yet a little bit submissive Sophie. A match made in heaven. Now they just need to break down their defences and try and figure out the puzzle that is Ryan’s dad’s murder. A few little twists in this story, all adding to the plot as it thickens with each book. I loved it. Teddy Hamilton is perfect for narrating Ryan’s domineering, dirty talking persona, because well, that voice. Emma Wilder nails Sophie, a match made in heaven.
So, after My Sinful Nights, the next book is My Sinful Desire and it certainly had that in spades. Desire, lust and a sexily, sinful dominant guy in the lead role. Ryan Sloan is Shannon’s brother and likes to be ‘in control’. He has a serious alpha side and a very dirty mouth to back it up.
Sophie is the sister of the detective leading the investigation into the Sloan siblings' father’s murder eighteen years ago. It’s clear from the moment they met that sparks are gonna fly, and watching these two fight the battle was fun.
It didn’t take long for them to get together.
I really enjoy the way this story played out, as well as the added character POVs.
