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.
I presume I start reading the series backwards! I might have started with Seductive nights serie first not Sinful Nights, but I think it’s never late to do that soon. After all Lauren’s ability to keep us focused into her stories is easy and welcome.
I loved Brent’s and Shannon’s story! I also loved that Sweet Sinful Nights is a stand-alone story about the two of them but I believe there will be more of their story, in the next books of the serie, even if the main characters are different, talking about their own storytale. Lauren introducing us these new characters into Sweet Sinful Nights. Into Shannon’s and Brent’s story. Last, I loved that I can read both of their thoughts inside the story. Brent’s POV and Shannon’s POV which are so similar to the other. This way the story doesn’t get boring, contrary it gives us the opportunity to connect with both of them complitely.
Too many things happening inside their story! Awful, hard to cope things, which they let life to take its course and then beautiful, happy things which they never want to end. Somewhere in the mindle, these mood differences changed into something more important, something more necessary than their self protection, and that was their need to give love to each other no matter what is happening in their lives daily. Good or bad, Shannon and Brent, have to deal with it together. In the end, this amazing couple, is going to have it’s HEA end that deserves to have, and I’m so happy and inspired by it.
Starts ten years ago, with an awful break-up between Brent Nichols and Shannon Paige, who both where twenty something, ready to win the world with their dreams. Each one was after some big opportunity to get them start from somewhere but their good luck cost their engagement and they split shooting each other, big selfish lines and for the end, an ultimatum which thown Shannon’s mind off guard.
Brent’s life was easy, full of happiness and joy, growing in a loving, carring family who everyone is close to the other. When he first laid eyes on Shannon, in the age of nineteen, inside a comedy club doing his gig, it was his mission to make her his, no matter what and he succeeded. Brent was for Shannon, the way to happiness and joy but she carried too many awful secrets about her past and her family, so their relationship wasn’t always smooth and easy. However, after two years together, been engaged, with the most inspiring way and all, Brent and Shannon tried the best of them to be together. Brent was her drug, her serenity, her cloud nine and even after a big fight between them, he always tranquilize their spirits by making love to her in any way he could. She was the one for him and he knew it!
Shannon couldn’t imagine her life without him either! Her luck to find a good guy, who cared for her deeply and support her, was beyond her. She carried a very heavy load from her youth, a load that she always expected to be heavier to cope to anyone she’ll be involve. But Brent wasn’t anyone! Even if he didn’t had the same life as Shannon’s, he had a huge heart to cover and protect, only for her. He always was by her side when she needing him, but after their brake up, after what Brent ask her to leave, in the most selfish way, he cut her in pieces. He cut her way to happiness and took her back into the darkness of her past.
Ten years have past and a new Shannon is working her way to the top! New name, new look, new life, she is now Shay Sloan, a bussiness woman who owns Shay Productions, a firm that helps dancers to be hired at clubs all over US and, also, international. After her injury when she was young, her future to work as a professional dancer was over, so she find jobs as a choreographer and one thing follows the other ending with Shannon to create her own company. Her company picked by Brant’s partner, for his night clubs all over the country.
And their meeting was inevitable!
Brent couldn’t kick her out of his mind! Not even once in the decade…
Shannon couldn’t forget him either but not only for the same reasons! Forgive and forget was so hard to do and she didn’t wanted to. Losing someone wasn’t new for her, she already lost her father when she was young. Loss always hunding her! And when fate orchestraded their reunion, Shannon didn’t wanted to lose Brent again but didn’t wanted to be with him either…in the start!
Relationships are to give and take, are to support and understand, are to love and care, are everything! Both, Shannon and Brent, understand that now. Their connection is beyond words, their chemistry is more than sinful, and now they have their second chance to prove what they meant for each other. Playful and full of humor lines, heardbreaking moments and an uncontrollable passion that burns, when the two of them are in the same room and everything else lose it’s meaning, this love story has so much to share! But the best of all, are their steamy sex scenes which Brant deffinitely knows what he is doing! Oh man!!! If a love story doesn’t has suspence and “dirty sex” what’s the meaning of it then? Just kidding!! The story has everything a reader would want to read and enjoy it. Lauren Blakely is one of the best authors in that genre and she always gives us great stories to read.
So enjoy reading Sweet Sinful Nights and continue with the rest of the serie which are online too.
