He's the inked brother. The one you're wondering about. The bad boy of the family.
Colin Sloan has a past. He's done things he's not proud of, but he's living differently now. Making changes in his life. Working hard, working out harder, and trying to win over one woman. He's utterly crazy about Elle Mariano, and though the sex is epic, their friends-with-benefits arrangem

Kara Hildebrand (Two Book Pushers)
I have read all of Lauren's books and I love them all for different reasons. Sinful Longing isn't your normal boy meets girl, they fall in love and live happily ever after. We met Colin in the Sinful Nights Series. He's the tattooed brother under the sexy three piece suit. He has a past. He has baggage, but he's overcome it all. He is also already involved with Elle. It's casual, but he has it bad for and he wants more. It's a nice change of pace to have the man chase the woman. Elle is scared. ...more
Another sinful and decadent installment in the Sinful Nights series by the talented Lauren Blakely! Blakely is a FIVE STAR author! She can DO NO wrong in my book. She is my auto-buy author, my go-to author, and one of my favorite romance authors out there today. I'm never more giddy than I am when I see her books pop up on my Kindle. She brings us gorgeous alpha males like no other! There is such an intensity that radiates off of her characters that brings the books to life. Colin Sloan is a man ...more

Ha, I was definitely LONGING to get my hands on Sinful Longing, especially given the way that Sinful Desire ended—with a little cliffhangery moment that propelled the overarching mystery of this series forward…and maybe a little sideways. But also because…COLIN.

Colin Sloan hasn't always been the stand-up guy he is now. Now, he's a good guy in a bad boy’s body—tatted, tempting, smart, kind, and all kinds of sinful in the sack. And he wants Elle Mariano. But his past…well, that makes it difficult

This is Colin & Elle's story, Colin Sloan, the tatted, reformed bad boy. oh. You got me!! This is my Colin & Elle :-)

Not only does the suspense continue in this book (I am addicted to this storyline!!!!!!!) but it keeps expanding, there is fabulous content and as always it is so well written that I am visualising while reading.

Sinfully sexy scenes between two strong hot as hell characters, I mean, this for me is as sexy a pairing as Julia & Clay. And great supporting charac

I have read all of Lauren's books and when I am in the mood for a sinful sexy, sweet with a side of suspense read, she is my girl! I am never disappointed with the storyline, writing or turn of events. She hits me in the heart and other parts every single time! And this series is one of my favorites, the Sloan brothers and their love interests are sexy, smart, strong and funny. And with Colin, it's a bit darker...

Angy's review: 5+++ stars

It’s been two days after finishing Sinful Longing and I’m still in shock over the huge cliffhanger of this book. It’s the biggest one of all the series, and I wouldn't expect less because the next book is the last one * CRYING SO HARD * I’m going to miss the Sloan Family so much when the series is over. Yeah, yeah, I’s not over yet, but I can’t help to think there’s only one book left and that makes me sad because, seri

The Sinful Nights series is one of my absolute favorites! It’s sexy, it’s mysterious, it’s romantic. It hits all my favorite things – Strong men, strong women, twists and turns, with some downright dirty sexy times. Lauren has done a brilliant job with mixing a murder-mystery into each of the Sloan brothers story. With every new sibling we meet, we find out just how twisted and complicated everything is and as I finish each book in this series, I can’t help but be
I know I’m probably starting to sound like a broken record when it comes to my reviews of Lauren Blakely books, but seriously…this woman can do no wrong when it comes to writing hot, sexy romances with swoon-worthy heroes and feisty, strong women. Just when I think I’ve found my ultimate Blakely bbf she goes and writes another one, causing me to rethink all my choices…I kind of wish she’d stop already never stop writing.

Sinful Longing, by the amazing Lauren Blakely, is a steamy, suspenseful, and sensory-wielding story that grabs you from the first page, taking you on an adrenaline rush of a read with a brilliant bombshell that blasts you at the end. Like a night on the Vegas strip, this book bleeds exhilaration, energy, and enthrallment.

My body scorched with heat from the steamy scenes written to pure panty-melting perfection. The crime-filled saga in Sinful Longing is flawlessly executed throughout this book.

This is such an entertaining, erotic and suspenseful series! I would not recommend reading these as stand alones. It is best to start with book one because you will want to be able to follow the mystery that is slowly unfolding surrounding the death of the Sloan family's father, the gang they think is responsible and their mother who is in prison. This third book definitely revealed some big surprises in the mystery/suspense plotline. A new character is revealed that totally changes the game!

With each new release in the Sinful Nights series, Lauren Blakely manages to find new ways to capture and hold the reader's attention with increasingly sexy stories of love and lust, a cast of characters that are both familiar and engaging, and an ongoing suspense-filled plot that keeps you guessing with each new revelation. The third book in the series, Sinful Longing, includes not only a scorchingly hot new romance between protagonists, Colin Sloan and Elle Mariano, but a number of twists and ...more

This is hands down my favorite Blakely Book yet! The heroine in this book is just kick-ass and super cool. I want to be Elle Mariano. It has been a long time since a heroine has inspired me this much. Elle is a roller derby girl and she runs the local community center that works with troubled teens. She is strong, smart, and sexy as hell and she has Colin all tied up in knots. Elle likes to have multiple orgasms with no attachments. She has her son to worry about and does not need a man intrudin ...more

This was so freaking awesome! It's my new favorite in the Sinful Nights series to date. Loved Colin and Elle's story!

This was seriously great. I was pulled in right from the beginning. It starts out with a major bang and wow! fans self! It was nice and hot to say the least! I loved getting to know Colin and Elle. They were fantastic characters. Nice build up to learning all about them and their backgrounds. Loved the development of their relationship, from the steamy to the emotional. Very well

This is one of my favorite Lauren Blakely books! The series has been a lot of fun, I like the overall plot of the Sloan's mom having their dad killed and all the secrets they've uncovered. It's intriguing and fun. This book in particular had a great story between Colin and Elle, they had amazing chemistry and the smut was so well written, whew! Colin is a recovering addict who loves extreme sports and his tattoos make him even sexier. Elle does roller derby which is awesome and badass and they f ...more

Lauren Blakey's Sinful Nights series is so much more than sexy books with hot alpha men. I mean, it's those things too, but the best and most surprising part about this series are the crazy twists and turns that are woven throughout, and then there's this mystery that continues unravelling with each book in the series. It's so masterfully done that you just can't help but want to read every book in the series.

Five Vegas stars? Six knee-hi, roller skating pairs of socks instead.

Let me begin by saying, if you have not started this series, rectify that right now. Sinful Nights series by Lauren Blakely is sexy on a raunchy level. Sultry. Seductive in the most captivating manner. The series is on a suspenseful level that keeps you not only wrapped up in the story but intrigued as well.

Secrets, seduction and charm fill the pages of this highly anticipated continuation of the Sinful Nights series and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute with Colin and Elle.

Colin was quite the charmer. He was genuine, kind and determined to not let his past dictate his future. His passion for helping others was admirable and swoon worthy and dare I say gave my other Blakely Boys a run for their money. Though I was a bit frustrated with Elle at times, I understood her instincts and respected her de

I haven't read the first two books in this series, but it's easy to follow anyway. (I think it would've been better if I had, though, just because of the subplot with Colin's father's murder. I'm guessing I'd have a more complete picture if I had read the first two books.) But the main plot with Colin and Elle? Yeah, that's easy to love even with no background.

(I think these are more connected books than an actual series, though; it seems like each book focuses on a different member of

Colin Sloane - simply put; he is every single Mom's hot fantasy and then some! He's smart, kind, tattooed, hot, compassionate, pleasurable, and good with kids. He has a past that he is ashamed of, however he has conquered and rose above. He has his sights set on Elle Mariano, the director of the Community Center, and he has his work cut out for him!

The best book in this series!!

This is absolutely my favorite book of this series!! I fell in love with Colin...hardcore. I love that from the very beginning he was all about making Elle see him as more. More than a guy who volunteers at the center, more than a friend, more than a great orgasm and most importantly, more than his past. 

No surprise though that I loved the strong female character, Elle just as much. Lauren Blakely does female leads better than anyone I know. Elle is fierce and drive

So far this is my favorite of the series! Colin and Elle have chemistry, there is no denying that. Only problem is Elle has been burned by an addicted man once before, the father of her child who died from an overdose. She doesn't want to take a chance on Colin since he is a recovering alcoholic. The two flirt, they have hot, passionate sex in all kinds of settings, but they keep each other at arms length at the same time. They both want more, but can they conquer the obstacles in their way?

Holy crazy BOMBSHELLS, this book was INTENSE!!!

For those of you who haven't read the others in this series, STOP HERE and start them at the beginning. For those who are caught up, you will NEVER see this one coming!

I don't even know how to begin reviewing this book with all the stuff I just read. The chemistry between Colin & Elle is off the charts HOT - seriously - make sure you have spare panties available. And then we get to the storyline that weaves throughout the series...

Sinful Longing is sadly the first book by this author that I haven't enjoyed. This time we're following Colin and Elle who have known each other for awhile. They're basically friends with benefits, although Colin wants more. Elle is reluctant to let him in because he's a recovering addict and her ex-husband had died from an overdose. Meanwhile, Elle is also the social worker for Marcus who has revealed to her that he's Colin's secret younger brother. Then she starts getting threatening messages ...more
Colin Sloan wants all of Elle Mariano, but she's not willing to give it to him. She's got her reasons, even though she longs for him too. He's everything she wants, but also has the potential to be her worst nightmare repeated. Colin has tried hard to leave his past behind him, but it just keeps coming back to affect his present.

But they both know that their sizzling chemistry and attraction is not going away. So they both have their own strategies on how to play it. He takes risks for a living
