He gave her the most mind-blowing night of pleasure ever. He made her want to get down on her knees. He dominated her in ways she'd only dreamed of. And she didn't even know his name...
It's what Ryan Sloan values most. Control of his business, control of his secrets, control of his days and nights. With the way his life spiraled in the past, he needs to stay in charge of his present.
Giving up control.
It's what Sophie Winston craves. After a wildly successful career, she's stepped away from the business world and is now focused on her work as her city's most noted philanthropist.
When she meets Ryan Sloan, the chemistry is scorching, and utterly undeniable. Their desire for each other runs red hot. He wants everything she's willing to give him in bed, and she wants him to take her to new heights as only he can.
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.
When the truth is revealed, he'll have to give more of himself than he's bargained for or risk losing the only woman he's ever let into his heart.
SINFUL DESIRE is book two in SINFUL NIGHTS, a four-book series. Each full-length novel features a new couple. This high-heat, high-stakes sexy romance series follows the Sloan family as each sibling falls madly in love against the backdrop of sin, money, greed, passion, mystery and suspense...
Four Star Review by Ashley
I don't know how she does it but every book Lauren Blakely turns out makes me fall for her writing more and more. This is the second book in the Sinful Nights series but can be read as a standalone. Though I do recommend reading Sweet, Sinful Nights so you can grab some of the character and plot references made in this one. Sinful Desire had everything I've come to know and love from her writing and a few surprises too. I was hooked from the first fun and flirty page. Blakely's writing, full of humor, wit and charm kept me enthralled and left me wanting so much more.
I loved the instant attraction- I could almost see it happening in slow motion: guy sees girl, does a double take, eyes bulge out of his head and practices what he is going to say as he makes the slow, steady approach towards her. But this isn't your ordinary woman. Oh, no this is Sophie, modern day Marilyn Monroe complete with a flashy car and a heart of gold. I adored her from the get go. She is equal parts selfless, sensual, sassy, smart and savvy. Deep down she is a true romantic, even though she has been burned by love in the past. She wants it all; the fairy tale happily ever after, a love that will stand the test of time. Another of the things I really liked about Sophie was the relationship she had with her brother, John who happens to be part of the Las Vegas PD (this will play a part in the story later).
Ryan, sexy, dirty talking, security company owner is a man who knows what he wants- fun, no strings attached, good times with gorgeous women. But what he can't seem to get over is how much Sophie gets to him. Their chemistry is undeniable, so they don't- deny it. Ryan, being his stubborn self is determined to not let her in but as they spend more time together the inevitable happens, he falls for the amazing woman that is Sophie. They were so much alike that when they butted heads I wanted to lock them in a room so that they would just talk to each other about what was bothering them. I loved that Ryan got his family in on the act. His relationship with his siblings- Colin, Shannon and Michael melted my heart. They were all so close and had each others backs no matter what- even when they didn't agree with each other, they still loved each other, unconditionally. And when push comes to shove it is his siblings who are there for him to lean on and to knock some sense into him too.
I loved the ease and lightness in Ryan and Sophie's relationship. It was a side of themselves that they didn't really let others see. However, Ryan has so much going on in his life that he is torn about really letting Sophie in on everything from his past. I liked this not so confident, apprehensive side of him. But what a can of worms is unleashed when Ryan makes a big gesture and Sophie puts her mind to work. The tragedy and mystery of the Paige-Prince family is starting to unravel. WOW! I had no idea how deep and convoluted that part of the story would become and there is so much left unknown. Very clever of Blakely to start use that story line to tie all the books together (rather than them just being because they're siblings). And that shocker at the very end- suffice it to say I didn't see that one coming at all. So, if you like your books full of charm, steam, sweetness and mystery then you will love Sinful Desire. And like me be waiting with baited breath for the next installment of this series, Sinful Longing, Colin's book.
