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...
Review (by Cindy)
“Sinful Love” is the fourth (and final) installment in the Lauren Blakely’s Sinful Nights series. I can’t believe it’s over, but I think Lauren saved the best for last. It isn’t the first “long lost love” theme of the series, but it was the sweetest.
Michael Sloan is the oldest of the Paige-Prince children, and I would definitely make the case that he’s the sweetest. And the most pragmatic. At least, he seems to be the one with the fewest “hang-ups.” The author connects Michael to her readers by taking us back to his teenage years, and giving us a glimpse of the easy-going, happy-go-lucky, completely smitten adolescent that he was. That is, before the tragic event that devastated and destroyed his family. In the years following that tragedy, however, Michael manages to find his bearing, confidently filling his father’s empty shoes, and providing stability to his broken family. Everything about Michael is “level-headed.” Except, of course, where Annalise Delecroix is concerned. That’s the one area where Michael has never quite managed to stabilize.
Teenage love is such a powerful thing, and Michael and Annalise are a testament to that. Time, long distances, and the changes that young adulthood and life put in their path are no match for the connection these two characters have. It’s palpable, and Lauren Blakely is a master of not only telling readers what the characters are feeling, but showing them in such a way, that there were times when I was feeling it right along with them.
Of course, the series could not end without solving the mystery of Thomas’s death. I read each book in this series trying to anticipate where the author was leading her readers with clues. Each installment threw me enough of a curve to both keep the story unpredictable and keep me craving the next book. And I’m happy to say, that the author was able to keep me guessing pretty much until the very end.
Admittedly, I’m kind of sad to see the series end, but as they say, “all good things…” And if it had to end, then “Sinful Love” definitely ended it on a high.
Five sweet, sinful, love-ly stars!
A rush of heat flooded him at those three words. He wanted to be the only one for her, even if he was only able to have her for a small moment in time. He would take what he could get, and he would savor it. She was here right now, with him and no one else.
“You have no idea how glad I am that I’m the one you thought of, Annalise,” he whispered.
A smile tugged at her lips.
Then, he went for it. Just fucking let it all out. A hope, a wish, a what if question. “Do you ever wonder what would have happened that day if you weren’t engaged? If you’d never have met him?”
She shook her head. “No. I don’t think about it. I don’t have to wonder,” she said, her tone steady and certain as she looked straight at him, the rest of the restaurant fading into a blur. “Because I know what would have happened.”
His hands shook and his heart stuttered as he rasped out, “What would have happened?”
She leaned in closer, placing a hand on his cheek. “I’d have stolen you. Taken you away from the army. Brought you home with me to Paris. Kept you all for myself for all the years and made up for lost time,” she said, and his heart beat furiously, slamming against his chest, loving those words.
“Stop saying those things,” he whispered, shaking his head.
“Things that make this harder for me.”
“Why is it hard for you?”
He drew a breath. “Because you say things like that and it makes me want to steal you away. Maybe this is my only chance.”
“What if it is?”
That was the question, wasn’t it? What if this night, this trip, these hours were all they’d have? He didn’t know if he could risk putting any more of his heart on the line for her. One thing was certain—his original notion that one touch and she’d be out of his system was well and truly gone. “Then we make the most of it.”
