Sinful Love by Lauren Blakely
Intense. Devoted. Protective.
Michael Sloan is all of the above, with a hard tough edge to boot. He's not the guy he used to be. Years ago, before all the s&%t went down, he was laidback, carefree, and even happy-go-lucky.
Life changed him. Hardened him.
There's one woman though who can break down his walls. Someone who knew him then. Who can reach inside to that heart he protects fiercely...because she's the only one he ever gave it to. When they collide, it's tender and savage, gentle and rough, and makes them both hungry for more of this electric, once-in-a-blue moon kind of sexual chemistry. But it's a battle of wills between Michael and the woman he loves, with words and emotions held close to the vest.
She doesn't believe she can ever move on from her own heartbreak, but when Michael makes her feel for the first time in years, it's both thrilling and scares the hell out of her, setting off all her flight instincts. He's determined not to lose her again, but he'll have to learn to let her in if he ever wants to fully heal from the past...
The problem is, she knows something about the night his family shattered. She has the missing puzzle piece...but neither one of them realizes it.
SINFUL LOVE is the fourth and final book in the steamy, sexy, suspenseful New York Times Bestselling Sinful Nights series from Lauren Blakely, author of the wildly popular Seductive Nights series.
4 Star Review by Ashley
I've said it before and I will say it until everyone hears it, Lauren Blakely can do NO wrong. While Sinful Love is a stand alone I highly recommend reading the earlier books in the series because the events from one lead into the the next as each piece of the puzzle that's been plaguing the Sloan family for years unfolds. And at the helm of that is Michael. His character has intrigued me since the first time I met him in the beginning of the Sinful Nights series and I fell for him hard and fast in here.
There are mentions of Michael's what if girl from time to time, the reason he never settled down...his heart was hung up on the one and only girl who took it with her when she left his life almost two decades prior. Once I met Annalise, I understood why. That woman has a heart of gold and a sexy side that I think all women wish they could pull off. Her world has been rocked by heartbreak and it shaped the way she had lived her life. When the opportunity arises to come face to face with her past, she takes the risk because you just never know. I loved that the chemistry between Michael and Annalise was there from the moment they laid eyes on each other again. The small, quiet moments got to me in this one. I could really feel how desperate they were for one another. Yet at the same time they were both guarding their hearts because they knew what it was like to lose the other and they didn't want to have to try and survive that pain again.
I can't forget how everything involving Michael's father wrapped up. Geez- talk about heart stopping. I never, ever in my mind connected the dots to put the puzzle together. Thankfully Michael and Annalise were able to! Sinful Love was a whirlwind that had it all. Lust. Love. Loss. Longing. Sex. Secrets. Sweetness. Mystery. Danger. Family....Lauren Blakely gave this family and this series the ending it so richly deserved.
