EXCERPT from SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS:

SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS, Book One in a brand new erotic romance series, Sinful Nights! In the high-heat, high-stakes, high-glamour style of the Seductive Nights series…

She turned around and pushed hard on the ladies room door. But she felt his hand around her wrist, and he yanked her back, spinning her in one quick move, so she was chest to chest with him. She felt his breath on her.

“It did work out well for me. I’m also not the same person I was ten years ago,” he said, then did that thing again — that thing where he undressed her with his eyes, where he fucked her completely with his hot, dirty stare. “And you obviously have become a different person too.”

He tugged her, pulled her closer. His heart pounded against her breasts. His hand gripped her lower back.

He felt so good that she didn’t resist because her stupid body was stuck in the past, was living ten years ago when he alone was the one who could help her, who could free her, who could take away all the pain in one touch.

But he hadn’t, had he?

He’d caused more in his wake.

In his cruel exit.

She jammed a hand against his chest. His strong, firm chest that she knew intimately. The fucker. “I had reasons. Real reasons. Life and death reasons,” she said in a low hiss.

He shut his eyes briefly, looking pained. He sighed heavily, then somehow his arms were around her, and this time his touch wasn’t sexual. It wasn’t lustful. It was an embrace. From someone who knew nearly everything about her.

“Are you okay? Are you safe?” he asked in a whisper into her hair.

A tear had the audacity to slip out of her eye. To slide down her cheek, and fall onto his shoulder. It was a Pavlovian reaction. Too many tears had fallen on that shoulder.

“Yes,” she said quietly, with a nod. “I am. It’s fine. It’s all fine.”

He pulled back, tucked a hand under her chin, and lifted her face. She was so close to him she could trace the outline of his jaw, could run the pad of her finger over his stubble, his unbearably sexy eight-o-’clock shadow. She could drag her fingernails through his hair, soft, thick strands that simply had belonged between her hands. She could look in his eyes as he moved in her, those deep, soulful eyes that understood her. Somehow, he was rough and gentle, he was charming and fierce, he was funny and dirty. He was the man she’d wanted to spend the rest of her life with.

“Are you sure?” he asked, so much tenderness and worry in his tone.

She gathered herself, and willed that obstinate organ in her chest to stop beating in double time. She informed her traitorous body to stop trembling just from being near him. “Yes. I’m sure.”

He let her go. He tipped his forehead back to the bar. “I should get back out there. They’ll start wondering. See you in a few.”

And he walked away.

Just like the last time she’d seen him.

She pressed her lips together, and breathed out hard. She pushed open the ladies room door, walked to the sink, dropped her hands onto the cool tile and let out the longest, hardest breath. She hoped to hell this was the only time she’d have to deal with Brent Nichols.

When she was near to him like that, she couldn’t think straight. She could only feel. And that was far too dangerous for her heart.

SINFUL NIGHTS Series

About SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS:

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.

 

And be sure to watch for the next titles in the Sinful Nights series!

ATN RDL Banner 3

After This Night

Synopsis

This is the conclusion of Julia and Clay’s story that began in the New York Times Bestseller Night After Night.

“Why do you like me tied up sometimes?”
“Because the way I feel for you is so out of control that this is one way for me to feel in control again.”

Their world was passion, pleasure and secrets.
Far too many secrets. But Clay Nichols can’t get Julia Bell out of his mind. He’s so drawn to her, and to the nights they shared, that he can’t focus on work or business. Only her. And she’s pissing him off with her hot and cold act. She has her reasons though-she’s trying to stay one step ahead of the trouble that’s been chasing her for months now, thanks to the criminal world her ex dragged her into. If only she can get out of this mess, then maybe she can invite the man who ignites her back in her life, so she can have him-heart, mind and body.
He won’t take less than all of her, and the full truth too. When he runs into her again at her sister’s wedding, they have a second chance but she’ll have to let him all the way in. And they’ll learn just how much more there is to the intense sexual chemistry they share, and whether love can carry them well past the danger of her past and into a new future, after this night…

Please note: This book is intended for 18+ due to dirty talk, light bondage, and lots of sexy scenes.

Enjoy the excerpt!

“I wish I were there wearing your clothes right now.”

He laughed. “That’s what you want to be doing? Because I’d like to be fucking you if you were here.”

“Well, that too. But then I’d put on your shirt.”

“You like that, don’t you?”

“I know you do too,” she said.

“I do. Seeing you in my shirt and your heels is my kryptonite.”

“Oh, is that it? That’s your kryptonite?”

“Or maybe it’s just that you are,” he whispered, admitting more than he wanted to.

“I think the same could be said here.”

There was a pause, and though they were three thousand miles apart, the silence was heady. He was in a drugged-out state tonight. This woman was his pill, and closeness with her was what he craved most even as he feared she would destroy his heart. Smash it to a million tiny pieces and eat it for lunch. But he had a built-in barrier in distance, and with no trips to San Francisco on his immediate calendar he saw nothing wrong with this temporary moment of relief from the pressure inside of him from wanting her. They couldn’t be together in any meaningful way, and he couldn’t get hurt if he didn’t actually see her. Right? Right, he answered for himself.

“What are we doing, Julia?” he asked, and he was sure she could hear the longing in his tone, but he didn’t care. There was no need to hide it after they’d just broken down and pleasured themselves together.

“I wish I knew,” she said, her voice wistful and full of yearning. “I really wish I knew.”

He heaved a sigh, trying to sort out his thoughts, but his brain was a mixed-up mess and he didn’t know how to untangle all the threads. Or if he wanted to remain tangled up with her instead.

“What are you going to do when we hang up?” he asked, changing direction.

“Read a book.”

“What are you reading these days?”

“A crazy story about a guy who treks across Antarctica.”

“That does sound crazy.”

“Yeah. He’s kind of hallucinating and talking to penguins right now,” she said with a small laugh.

“Can you blame him? I have to imagine if you’re stuck in the polar ice cap that talking to penguins might be a rare source of comfort.”

“As long as he doesn’t eat the penguins I’ll keep reading it.”

“Here’s to no penguin meals in the books we read.”

“What will you do?”

“I suspect I will fall fast asleep and dream of a beautiful redhead on the other side of the country.”

“She would like that dream very much,” she said in a sweet voice, the kind that worked its way beneath all the hard edges in him, and settled deep in his heart. “Will I talk to you again soon?”

He took a fueling breath, and put his armor back on, steeling himself. “I don’t know the answer to that.”

Synopsis

**Warning: Spare panties are needed for reading this book…you’re welcome.***
“You are being rewarded for turning me on. But we’re doing it my way. You teased the hell out of me, and now I want to watch you squirm. Crawl up on my bed and get on your hands and knees.”

Their world was sex, love, and lies.
He intoxicated her. Commanded. Consumed.
With a dirty mind and a mouth to match, Clay Nichols is everything Julia never knew she wanted and exactly what she cannot have. He walked into her life one night and unlocked pleasure in her that she never knew was possible. Possessing her body, captivating her every thought. Which makes him way too dangerous for Julia to risk her heart, given that she has a price tag on her head. She ran after one mind-blowing week with him, but now he’s back, and determined to make her his own.
No matter the cost.
She was a sexy drug to him. Fiery, unforgettable, and never enough, Julia is an enigma, and Clay isn’t willing to let her go without a fight. But she’s got dark secrets of her own that threaten to destroy any chance of happiness. She’s a wanted woman – the stakes are high, her every move is watched, and yet the lure between them can’t be denied. Can two people burned by love trust again when desire and passion are met by danger at every turn?

A sensual, emotionally-charged erotic romance from the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…

Blog Tour: “The Thrill Of It” by Lauren Blakely – Synopsis, My Review & Giveaway

TTOI BT

Hello, my lovelies!

It has now become my turn on the blog tour of this truly amazing story.

At the end of this post, there is a tour wide giveaway.

Enjoy!

The Thrill of It Cover
Blurb

A new adult story of Love. Sex. Addiction. Blackmail. And Power…Some say love can be an addiction. Others say it’s the thing that makes life worth living. Let me tell you everything I know about love…Love isn’t patient, love isn’t kind. Love is a game, a chase. A thrill. Love is wild and war-like, and every man and woman must fight for themselves. At least that’s how it was for me. A high-priced virgin call girl by the time I started college, I was addicted to love and to sex. Even though I’ve never had either. I controlled love, played it, and held the world in the palm of my hands. Then I fell down from those highs, and I’m being blackmailed for all my mistakes, forced to keep secrets from everyone, except the only guy I don’t regret.

Trey…

With all the other women, I knew what they were. They were temporary. They were pills, they were bottles, they took away all the pain, and numbed the awful memories that wore down my ragged, wasted heart. Until I met Harley. She’s the only girl I ever missed when she walked away. But now she’s back in my life, every day, and there are no guarantees for us, especially since I don’t know how to tell her my secrets. What happened to my family. All I know is she’s the closest I’ve ever come to something real, and I want to feel every second of it.

How can you love with no regrets when regret is all you know?

My Review

ARC received by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I am fast becoming a huge fan of Lauren Blakely’s even though this is only the second book of hers that I have read. She has a way of making you invested in her stories from page one and this book is no different. But, as I have said before, be warned: this is not like her other books so do not expect it to be.

How can you be a virgin call girl addicted to sex and love? To tell you the truth, I was a bit sceptical about this and I am sure I am not the only one. But then, the more I got to know Harley, the heroine, my scepticism dwindled until it became nonexistent.

Harley is definitely a product of her upbringing: her father left when she was very little and after her mother, Barbara, got back on her feet, she molded Harley into becoming her friend, not her daughter. It was really heartbreaking reading the passages about Harley’s mother and some violent feelings arose in me every time she did or said something that no daughter needs to know about her mother. I found it particularly difficult getting to know how she had no qualms about Harley hearing about her sexcapades. And it really makes you wonder how such a smart woman – an award-winning journalist, nonetheless – cannot see how toxic an environment this is for one’s child.  It brought me close to being sick to my stomach, actually, and it definitely made me understand Harley’s actions so much better.

“I am cracked and brittle too, hardened by all the things I saw, and mostly all the things I heard over the years.” (Harley)

Harley met her former pimp, Cam, through her mother, actually. Now, here is a character that is peculiar, to say the least. The first word that comes to mind is “sleazy”. Then, as you read the book, the second word is “interesting”. And finally, you end up thinking “likeable”, which is very strange, I know. But that is how I felt while reading Harley’s story. When she describes how she was allowed to make up her own set of rules, and that Cam had no problems with that, it is no wonder why Harley stayed in that life for years.

The only reason Harley is no longer a call girl is the fact that she is being blackmailed – how I hated that woman, Miranda! She is forcing Harley to write a book about her “exploits” – called “Memoirs Of Teenage Sex Addict” – and makes her go to SLAA (“Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous”) in order to change her ways. This is actually a blessing in disguise because that is where she connects with a young man, Trey, which she has met once before and cannot stop thinking about. He makes her feel things she has never felt before, but because of her past, she is afraid to trust them.

Trey is, like Harley, a product of his upbringing, but instead of too much openness, his home was cloaked in silence. I dare you to NOT feel anything while getting to know what Trey hides in his soul – his story made me cry, it was so heartbreaking. He is also going to the meetings in the SLAA, but for an entirely different reason: his problems stem from mindless sex with older women. He has never had a girlfriend, never even had sex with a girl his own age.

What more can I tell you about Harley and Trey without giving the story away? I will not go into further details about what takes place, because you really need to read the book and make up your own mind about it. But what I CAN tell you is that this book is about how two damaged souls can find each other in a time of pure darkness, and how they finally let go of their pasts and search for a better future together. And the way Trey sees Harley will definitely make you swoon:

“You belong to a stained glass window in an abandoned building. You belong to the flower in the junkyard. You belong to the beach that you want to see. Most of all, you belong to the ugly beautiful. You belong to this nessy, crazy, brave and honest love.” (Trey)

To sum up: like I wrote in the beginning of my review, this is not like Miss Blakely’s other books. For me, there are no laugh-out-loud moments, but it WILL make you sigh and smile. I have already told you that it made me cry, and I also felt lots of anger while reading. Further, it is an intense romance that definitely deals with some difficult subject matters. Finally, it is such a beautiful love story that does not end with this book – and yes, there is kind of a cliffhanger in the end, but nothing you will not be able to handle.

Thank you, Miss Blakely, for finally giving us Harley and Trey’s love story. I know that you started writing it a long time ago and I am so pleased that you did not keep it under lock and key. I, for one, am thrilled that this book is not the end of this couple’s journey. And I wholeheartedly believe in this:

“Now I know. I get it. I understand. This is love. It’s not a game. It’s not a razor’s edge. It’s not a transaction. The poets are right. The dreamers are right. The lovers are right. This isn’t nothing. This is everything.” (Harley)

Release Day Launch: “The Thrill Of It” by Lauren Blakely – Synopsis & Giveaway

TTOI RDL

Hello, everyone!

Happy Release Day, Lauren Blakely! Ladies, I have already read this book and my review will be posted when it gets to be my turn on the blog tour on the 25th November. I strongly urge you to read this book – but  be warned: it is NOT like the author’s previous books: it is darker, deals with a completely new subject matter, but it is a wonderful romance as well.

At the end of this post, there is a tour wide giveaway.

Enjoy!

The Thrill of It Cover
Blurb

A new adult story of Love. Sex. Addiction. Blackmail. And Power…Some say love can be an addiction. Others say it’s the thing that makes life worth living. Let me tell you everything I know about love…Love isn’t patient, love isn’t kind. Love is a game, a chase. A thrill. Love is wild and war-like, and every man and woman must fight for themselves. At least that’s how it was for me. A high-priced virgin call girl by the time I started college, I was addicted to love and to sex. Even though I’ve never had either. I controlled love, played it, and held the world in the palm of my hands. Then I fell down from those highs, and I’m being blackmailed for all my mistakes, forced to keep secrets from everyone, except the only guy I don’t regret.

Trey…

With all the other women, I knew what they were. They were temporary. They were pills, they were bottles, they took away all the pain, and numbed the awful memories that wore down my ragged, wasted heart. Until I met Harley. She’s the only girl I ever missed when she walked away. But now she’s back in my life, every day, and there are no guarantees for us, especially since I don’t know how to tell her my secrets. What happened to my family. All I know is she’s the closest I’ve ever come to something real, and I want to feel every second of it.

How can you love with no regrets when regret is all you know?
