I love authors who are not one note wonders. Yes, I can appreciate an author who has found their voice; they know what they do well and stick with it. There is No Shame in knowing your lane. But when an author has figured out their core strength and then incorporates it into a variation of styles and sub genres...then you have one who took a risk and won.

Lauren Blakely has my respect for doing just that.

Say it ain't so... This suspenseful and arresting series CAN'T be over. Not when I am so in love with it, with the Sloan siblings and their loved ones, and with the way Lauren Blakely shapes her book-world with a deft hand and a large helping of mystery...

And what mystery it was!! I could tell you more, but why risk spoiling it for you? If you've been following this series of inter-connected stories, you'll know that Sinful Love is the fourth book...and the one that holds the final, shocking an

Lauren Blakely has created a series that is rich and multi-layered in Sinful Nights and Sinful Love was its perfect conclusion. In each book clues are cleverly hidden and an exceptional plot was slowly unveiled offering up different pieces of this puzzle and it all culminated in this jaw-dropping finale. If you’re looking for a series that holds everything from humour to mystery and suspense to impossibly swoon-worthy men and epic romance; then look no further.

Blakely certainly has a knack for c

What can I say but je t'aime. Yes, that’s right. I LOVE this newest release by Lauren Blakely. It was hot, sexy, sensual, suspenseful and oh so dangerously sinful!!!

Ms. Blakely continues to lure her readers to fall head over in heel in love with her characters, prose, and most importantly her seductive storytelling. She has mastered this sinful talent in weaving a story with heart, suspense, passion, and raw emotions.

I really did not like this story, it actually irritated me enough that I barely finished it (even though I ended up heavily skimming).

I hate stories where the H/h are second best to the dead spouse. Even more depressing is how much Michael always obsessively loved her & only her, and tried to get her back. At a time when she could've got back together with Michael after they first drifted apart due to distance (10 yrs earlier) she instead chose her fiance OVER Michael, because "she’d lo
This woman can DO NO WRONG! Lauren Blakely is my drop everything now author and with SINFUL LOVE, the conclusion to the amazing Sinful Nights series, it absolutely took my breath away! This is one of Blakely's BEST! Romantic, heartwarming, and incredibly sexy, Michael Sloan took swoon-worthy to the NEXT LEVEL!

A gorgeous, glamorous, and passionate second chance love story that every romance reader will embrace!

Lauren Blakely tortures and soothes us with her words every single time. Sex, surprises

This was a good conclusion to the series. It didn't focus quite as much on the couple, Michael and Annalise, instead we got flashbacks to the father and how the mom got involved in drugs and his murder. I liked getting the backstory since it rounded out everything and gave answers, but it also prevented me from caring as much about Michael and Annalise. I still liked them and they had some good moments together, but it bounced around a lot.
The ending was cute and wrapped up all the Sloan kids (
I have been waiting so long for Michael Sloan's book and the conclusion to the Sinful Nights series, and this one did not disappoint!

Michael Sloan is now coming face to face with Annalise Delacroix his "What if?" girl. She was his "one that got away" and who he unconsciously measures all other women by. They were young and had many teenage dreams, but lost them all when their lives went different directions. And soon after his life took an even harder turn due to a family tragedy. Now eighteen y

This book… THIS BOOK! You guys… I can’t get over how emotional this book was! The sweetness, the angst, the heartbreak… mixed with so much hope over the future. Michael and Annalise’s story is one of second chances, new beginnings, and the past coming back to shock you.

If you’ve read the Sinful Nights series, then you know these books are not just about love stories… no, there’s mystery and suspense and a who-done-it theme that ties them all together. Throughout each book we get bits and pieces

Angy's Book Review: 5 million stars

Sinful Love is the perfect conclusion for Sinful Nights Series . Now all the Sloan siblings have their HEA and the case is closed. YES!! The case is closed! Phew!! And Lauren didn’t leave anything without an answer. She’s a genius because even little details said in Sweet Sinful Nights, Sinful Desire and Sinful Longing that I didn’t imagine would be important for the case, were brought to light and everything helped

WOW!!! What an great ending to an already FANTASTIC series!! Lauren Blakely knows how to write a series that is full of love, romance, sexy men, suspense and even some heartache.

Sinful Love is the fourth and final book in Lauren’s Sinful Nights Series. This book was just outstanding. This series is a romantic suspense series. Each of these books are about a new couple but the storyli

Sinful Love is the final book in the Sinful Nights series. Lauren is one of my top five go-to-authors. I just read everything she writes. Some of my favorite series' of all time are Lauren Blakely's. Lauren's writing just keeps getting better and better. She makes you care about these characters. You laugh with them, you cry with them. You celebrate with them. She writes the sexiest book boyfriends and the smartest leading ladies!

3 words. My favorite book!

Yes, this is my absolutely favorite book from Lauren Blakely.

We already knew Michael from the previous books, he's the more reserved of the Sloan family, we knew him like somebody too guarded of his feelings and the people who he lets in his life BUT in this book we get to know the real Michael, funny, romantic, flirty, and the man who wears his heart in his sleeve when it comes to Annalise.

Annalise was Michael's first love when they were only 16 years old. She's a Fre

This is a second chance romance like no other I have ever read. Michael Sloan was once a carefree teen in love with a French foreign exchange student named Annalise. But, time, distance and circumstance kept them apart. One chance meeting in Marseille 10 years ago sealed their fate. They both went on living their lives apart, now all these years later a letter from Annalise to Michael will send both of them in a direction they never expected. Can a first love become a new love?

Sinful Love was the perfect way to end the Sinful Nights series. In fact, it was my favorite book in the whole series. It wowed me from start to finish. I loved everything about it - every piece of plot, every relationship.

I loved Michael and Annalise's story. Their characters and their relationship had a depth and felt like something out of real life. It started off as rocky as one would expect as former loves, but that went away very soon because Michael and Annalise were perfect for each othe

Another winner released by Lauren Blakely! I absolutely LOVED and DEVOURED Michael and Annalise's story. Just when I didn't think the series could get any better, we're thrown for a complete twist with how the mystery behind the Sloan's father was murdered. The huge twist comes at the very end of Sinful Longing and let me just say, I was chomping at the bit to find out WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED NEXT.

SINFUL LOVE As I said before I am in tears since 70% of the book, and the story has some many edges, corners and twists that have you floating all along the way. The kind of book you can’t stop reading and at the same time don’t want it to finish. No doubt an incredible story of love, family ties, courage, faith, and hot as hell characters that make impossible to choose which you love most. Sinful Love is the most thrilling end that this story can have, surprising you in every chapter. Thanks to ...more
..ha.. ha.. when you read book 4 from a series without realizing you haven't read 1-3. #awkward

Well I know what I need to do this October.. read books 1-3 stat. Other than that, Sinful Love was an okay book. Probably would've made more sense to me if I actually did a good job and read 1-3 first but I have zero regrets.

In this book, you will meet Michael and Annalise. Not much really happened in this book (which I totally get is my fault for reading out of order) so I wasn't invested in them from

So before I begin I should mention my love for Michael. It's always been there. It was there from the beginning. I would message Lauren and ask how he was? That is how obsessed I was about him. I needed him. I wanted him. Let me just say he was so much better than I thought he would be!!!

Every single book that come out before this series left you hanging with more answers. Craving more. Wanting more. Needing More. This is the work that Lauren Blakely does best!

So now my journey for Michael start

“I never stopped loving you. Even when we fell apart, I wanted to find my way back to you.” ♥MICHAEL♥

Writing style: Third person omniscient POV

Cover design: It’s not my favorite of the four covers in the Sinful Nights series, but I like that it continued the theme of sexy abs with a maroon and pink color palette.

Lead Characters:
Annalise Delacroix – a French native, widowed photographer who met Michael during her high school year abroad in Vegas before his father was murdered

The Sinful Nights series is by far some of Lauren Blakely's best writing to date. The way she has seamlessly combined sexy romance that always has plenty of heart with a secondary story involving murder for hire is beyond brilliant. I have devoured every single word, fallen for each and every hero and even now wouldn't mind starting all over again. Yup it's that good.

Lauren Blakely has finished off this series very nicely with this one! I love how her writing is so passionate and makes you feel such a part of the characters lives when you are reading their story. The whole Sinful Nights series was really great!

This book is Michael Sloan's story and he gets to meet back up with his "What If" girl, Annalise. These two have a history together that we have read about before, but Annalise got married to someone else and Michael thought that he had lost his chance

After the jaw-dropping revelation at the end of Sinful Longing, I was more than eager to get started on the conclusion to Lauren Blakely's Sinful Nights series, Sinful Love. Equally as enticing as unveiling the series-long mystery was getting the opportunity to delve inside the mind of the eldest Sloan brother, Michael and I have to say…it was a spectacular place to be.

I loved it. This was a second (third?) chance romance at its best. If you can read this without falling a little in love with Annalise and Michael, you weren't paying attention.

The background info on Michael and Annalise quickly lets you see that they are approaching their reunion with similar fond memories and feelings of when they were together, but from a different perspective. Annalise, you discover quickly, was married and her husband passed away. Michael has always been in love with Annali

This storyline that has weaved its way through the other books has kept me intrigued and hooked and in this one, I don't know if it is because it is the end, or because there are more details coming through but oh my goodness, the details are coming through from all angles and characters, I am in detail and storyline heaven.

This Sinful series is one of my favorites from Lauren Blakely! This last book, though, is not only exciting and thrilling with all the discoveries about Thomas' murder, but it is moving and passionate beyond measure.

A love that has lasted eighteen years, a man who will never forget that love, finally gets the second chance this character deserves. The anticipation is palpable as the story unfolds. I could not put it down. Every time I would end a chapter, I needed to

Well the answer is "HECK NO"!

Sinful Love is just another one of her masterpieces.
A second chance love story. That is thought provoking, immensely gratifying and just genius!
Lauren Blakely weaved the characters from past to present day. Without so much as a glitch in the story. AAA++++++

Michael, oh sweet and sexy Michael. He can't overcome my love for Nate, but he's pretty damn special. He's getting a second chance with Annalise, and while both of them make some mistakes along the way (which they should), their story is the epitome of true love, and how it grows, changes, and even gets set aside through the years, but can come back stronger than ever!

Also, the mysteries are all solved, and we get to see everyone else (plus an extra someone who's one of of my favorites)!
