This third book in the Sinful Nights series continues to keep us engaged, excited and craving more of the Sloan family and the intriguing mystery that surrounds them. This story features sexy, tattooed bad boy, Colin Sloan and Elle Mariano, owner of the at-risk Youth Center, and kick ass roller derby skater. Colin and Elle met when Colin volunteered to help at the Youth Center. Colin has turned his life around from street thug and addict in his youth to a kind, thoughtful, and generous entrepreneur. He is a math wiz who is a genius at assessing risks. Elle is a compassionate, loyal single mom who doesn't like to take risk except when she is skating or in bed with Colin. They have a passionate 'friends with benefits' relationship that Colin wants to take further but because Elle is so protective of her son she holds herself back. Colin is determined to show her that he is a risk worth taking for her and for her son. They are so perfect together because they both assess risk, but from different angles. They are smart, like to have fun, and their dirty talking and fiery passion make them combustible between the sheets. I loved how their relationship grew at an honest pace from casual to emotional. I also love how Ms. Blakely writes adult characters who do not thrive on angst but work through their differences and short comings. The series long mystery arc continues to grow adding suspense and intrigue. It answers some questions but creates more with it's twists and turns. The ending was a real shock that I never saw coming! Ms. Blakely continues to find brilliant ways to keep this series sexy and intriguing. I can't wait to see what she has in store for Michael and how she will continue this exciting mystery!
Josh Goodman does a fantastic job with his narration, giving all the characters a distinct, engaging, and believable voice. I really enjoy his performance with this series.
I'm not a huge fan of Josh's narration but it's tolerable. The reveal at the end was awesome... I had my suspicions but the writing, build up and reveal was awesome.
I just didn't care for a 14yr old cursing and his mother didn't address it. Simple thing but it irritated me...
The author weaves a heck of tangled Web of sin, sex, mystery & love. Most of the plot twist I have seen coming. however, I did not see this cliffhanger coming. I am bummed that the next book in the series is out on Audible yet. now I have wait for more.
Hot, intense, and intriguing.
I like all of the characters, but Colin is my favorite. The Sloan brothers are some of my favorites of Lauren Blakely's characters. He's gone through so much, and gone on to become a man that his dad would be proud of.
Josh has really come to represent the voice of this series for me. He has done a great job, and his voice fits the mood of the books perfectly.
Marcus is definitely one of the most memorable characters in Sinful Longing. We finally get to find out who he is, as he has shown up in all of the books in this series, and it makes perfect sense. I can't wait to see more of him in Sinful Love, the last book in the series.
I love Lauren's books, and Josh has done a great job of representing them here.
I love reading in all forms...but audiobook gives me that little extra to highlight that experience.
YES YES YES.
Why? Because it is one of the best stories ever written.
OMG! That cliff is still haunting me months later
Yes I have listen to him before and his performance is flawless like always.
I could listen to him day in and day out without getting enough.
This one is easy....
Why? Well I can't really write that here ;)
I thought I loved this book when I read it, which I sure did :D
But to listen to the audiobook made the book even better if that is even possible.
While reading I imagined the story, places and characters in curtain way and now when I listened to audiobook I was reliving the story all over again and got a brand new feeling inside.
And it seems that every time I listen to audios for these books I capture some small details that are playing a big role for the storyline.
Josh Goodman has really captured this series well and adapted to every single character perfectly and has brought them to life in full force.
He was a perfect choice for the job. A job very well done.
Congratulations on a mission well completed Josh Goodman.
Congratulations on a great narrator choice Lauren Blakely.
Sexy, funny and shocking!
When Colin said Elle he was falling in love with her.
I love Josh' performances in this series. He translates all the characters perfectly
Colin of course. I'd convince him to go to a burger restaurant! hahahah
I loved this audiobook. This book is so awesome and I loved repeating it with the audiobook. I enjoyed Colin and Elle's sexy relationship, i loved the process they fall in love with each other. It was great to see how one of them was fighting with the feelings while the other one was trying so hard to show how worthy their relationship would be.
Great companion for a great book.
