Recommends it for: Fans of the Sinful Nights series (novella junkies)
Recommended to Livia by: Lauren Blakely
This short story gave us a brief peek at future lover's Sophie and Ryan. We learn a few quick facts about them both before reaching ‘The End.’

I really got a kick out of Sophie's penchant for lingerie. Her shopping trip was fun and made me want to run straight to Victoria's Secrets.

“I’m pretty sure they’re calling out to me,” she said, lifting the panties to her ear. “Why yes, I hear them saying ‘buy me, wear me, let me snuggle up against you.’”

Originally, I believe this novella was published

This short audio book was included at the end of Satisfaction Guaranteed.

It made me curious about the follow up book Sinful Desire so I just started listening to the first book in the series so I can listen to the books in the right order.

For the third book, I've used a RNG to pick out it's certainly not the worst, but thankfully the shortest. There isn't anything too special about this one, it being a very short little glimpse at two characters who feature in the second Sinful Nights book. Honestly, it was fine. I just found some of the conversations or thoughts to be a bit odd and kind of stiff feeling.

I think I own book two, but after this glimpse of them, it's probably the least excited I've been for a Blakely book. They are

How do you even rate a quick little taste like this?!? Boy did it ever wet my appetite for Sinful Desire...Ryan and Sophie are going to be hot, hot, hot!

A scorching sample of what is to come from Ryan and Sophie! It is wonderful to get a little insight into these two sensually delicious characters.

This is an extended version of the events leading up to chapter one of Sinful Desire, book #2 in the Sinful Nights series. Nothing missed if you just read book #2 as it does little more than introduce the two main characters.

This was a very short teaser for the next book in the series. It was free at the end of the audiobook Satisfaction Guaranteed.
Not sure what to think.. had some interesting plot lines w/ a murder mystery but still not sure what to think if I’ll try the series.

I enjoyed this story of Ryan Sloane and Sophie Winston. I enjoyed their journey and cannot wait to read rhe next book in the series.

This was almost what I would call a try hard BDSM book. What they considered to be BDSM was very VERY mild. Their dirty talk had me bursting out laughing and rolling my eyes a billion times. Not to mention that everything from start to end was way too corny for me that I had trouble finishing this book.

I admit that it was an interesting plot twist at the end. I had already started to suspected it but this book really keeps you guessing. Lauren Blakely actually does a good job at hiding what real

Disclaimer: Review might contain spoilers.

Sweet Desire was very short but managed to catch my attention and still had steamy scenes in spite of it being 24 pages only.

The two main character for the second book Sinful Desire were introduced in this book and we had a little peek of what they were like and their chemistry.

I simply loved it. The story was great and the sneak peek was absolutely mouthwatering. The steam was off the roof. Ryan was clearly into kinky stuff and Sophie was begging to be

Oh. My. God. That was an intense meeting of two very hot characters that will indeed be the perfect match.

I can't wait to read more of Ryan and Sophie's story! I can feel the heat between these two and they just met. But, during the short story you get to hear their fantasies and desires so yeah...it's going to be intense, off the charts sexy and a bit of sweetness.

Quotes:

Whew. Is it getting hot in this boutique or is it just my fantasy?

Sweet Desire is a short prequel to Sinful Desire. Meet Sophia. Not only will you learn about her taste for sinful, sexy lingerie but also her taste in men. Sophie Winston possessed particular fantasies, starting with a strong, confident, wildly intense man.
Then meet Ryan Sloan. His taste in women is the hard, rough, kinky, kind. Sum it up it in a few words, beautiful, brilliant, witty, sexy and sweet.
They meet on the streets of Las Vegas, caught starring at each other, instant attraction undeni

Oh Ryan, how I love you! I love this little taste that Lauren gives us. Just enough to get our minds engaged and wanting more, but not enough to satisfy our desires. Well done, Lauren. Ryan is Lauren's dirtiest hero to date and I can't wait for more!

She'd be sultry, voluptuous, and willing. So willing to be taken the way he wanted to take her.


She craved that kind of kink with the right man. A man who'd make her cry out in unholy pleasure, in wildly, addictive ecstasy as she surrendered to him.

I was just really frustrated with this novella in that it was way too short, and definitely shouldn't even be classified as anything more than just a pamphlet. I really like Lauren Blakely's books and have read just about all of them, but it gets a little irritating when an author makes so many novellas or add-ons to stories that you can't keep half of their series straight. I really like to completely finish a series and I just find it really hard to truly finish any of the Seductive Nights Ser ...more

I love that Lauren Blakely can't wait to share Ryan and Sophie and is giving us this free glimpse into their thoughts before the fated meeting that starts this gorgeous story.

It is THE perfect way to get our motors running for what will surely prove to be the author's sexiest work yet.

I guarantee this will whet your appetite enough that you'll want Sinful Desire as much as I do.

Well done as usual.

This is a short read that gives you a glimpse into what you will be getting from book two of this series! Ryan knows what he wants from a woman and he won't settle for anything less. Sophie knows what she wants from a man and is looking to find the guy she needs. The playful back and forth between the two of them as they meet on the street is just giving a taste of what's to come...can't wait to read book two!! ...more

This is a sweet, sexy, little sneak peek of what to expect when Sinful Desire goes live in a just two short weeks. The man with the green tie and the lady with the sexy thigh highs are so... divine.
