A sexy, suspenseful new romance novel from Lauren Blakely, author of the New York Times Bestselling Seductive Nights series…. 

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.

 { review } .
When this book begins, we are watching the unfolding of what should be an awesome relationship. Brent and Shannon were engaged and everything was peachy -- except their employment. Shannon, a dancer, was looking for choreography work, and Brent, a comedian/writer, was looking for a place to share his writing. The day Brent learns his fate, the day he's told he has a gig with a show on the other coast, he's flying high and can't wait to share his news with Shannon -- life is finally looking up.

But Shannon has been looking too, and she found work in New York, with the promise of a tour in London. The difference in their news (besides coasts)? 

Brent accepted; Shannon was waiting to discuss with her fiance.

And such the unfolding begins. In a twist of irony, what pulled them apart is ultimately what brings them back together.

Now, ten years later, Shannon's brother Colin wants to show her a video, and when her ex-fiance fills the screen, saying a piece about an ex, the last thing Shannon wants to do is watch it -- even when Colin swears Brent is talking about her.

I really loved Brent. He had his super sweet moment, but he still had his guy moments. That said, I never read SEDUCTIVE NIGHTS, Brent's brother's story (I did read FORBIDDEN NIGHTS though) -- but I want to. Clay and Brent are stand-up men, and I'd love to go back and read Clay's falling.

As much as it hurts my never-been-loved-type-of-heart, I do enjoy stories where old loves find their way back to one another again -- and what Lauren does extraordinarily right with that subject in SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS is she allowed her characters to grow up. So many times in this theme, the characters get back together and it's as if the years just fall away, that nothing changed -- but ten years is a lot of time. You've said goodbye to your crazy young twenties and hello to your mature thirties -- and I appreciated that Lauren allowed that to happen with Shannon and Brent.

Lauren also does the (not-necessarily-in-the-bedroom) hot scenes well, but if you've read Lauren's work, you know that. If you haven't? Be prepared. They're hot and sweet, all rolled up into a sweet little package. Or big, depending on where your mind went with that.
