Publisher's Summary

He's gorgeous, charming, and mysterious. She's beautiful, brilliant, and an open book. Together their chemistry is electric, but will his secrets tear them apart?

Control...It's what Ryan Sloan values most. Control of his business, control of his secrets, control of his days and nights. With the way his life spiraled in the past, he needs to stay in charge of his present.

Giving up control...It's what Sophie Winston craves. After a wildly successful career, she's stepped away from the business world and is now focused on her work as her city's most noted philanthropist. When she meets Ryan Sloan, the chemistry is scorching, and utterly undeniable. Their desire for each other runs red hot. He wants everything she's willing to give him in bed, and she wants him to take her to new heights as only he can.

Soon, he has to have more. All of her - heart, mind, and body. The only trouble is, he hasn't been honest about how he met her and the dangerous connection he has to her brother. When the truth is revealed, he'll have to give more of himself than he's bargained for or risk losing the only woman he's ever let into his heart.

Sinful Desire is book two in the New York Times best-selling Sinful Nights series. Each full-length novel is sinfully sexy, deliciously dirty, and follows a new couple.

Ugh!

If I didn't know better, I would think this was written by a man. I'm surprising myself in saying this, but there was just too much focus on sex and the kind of sex that I don't find hot. Every scene where he was going to masturbate onto her made me cringe. Her loving being tied up while giving him oral sex and her eyes are tearing up from him thrusting too deep down her throat...no thanks. I'm not shy about sex or even playful s&m. This felt way too detached for me. It lacked the human connection & vulnerability that would have made it engaging. I like this author and am surprised how much I hated this book. The story with Ryan's family is intriguing and I'll see if the next one is better.

Not the right audio reader for this book

this book writing is erotic, the reader sounds like a soft romantic guy. sex scenes are bland due to the reader reading it like he was reading a light romance or family book.

wrong reader for the book. I think Sebastian York should read it. He has the right voice for erotica.

Trying too hard

Unfortunately, I couldn't move past the over-the-top hyperbole enough to suspend my disbelief with the unrealistic plot.

Ok Desire

I'm struggling with this series - I normally LOVE Lauren Blakely's work. Not sure if it's the story or the narration that I just can't feel....

Ryan Sloan meets Sophie Winston by chance when he goes to the police station to answer questions about his father's reopened murder case. Ryan and Sophie have instant attraction and chemistry. Ryan's mother is in jail for his father's murder but he has kept one of his mother's secrets since he was a boy making him feel like there is more to the story that he doesn't know without betraying the trust of his mother who refuses to speak. He struggles with emotions to anyone until Sophie. Sophie is a successful confident direct entrepreneur turned philanthropist with a naughty side that Ryan loves. Sophie's brother is the cop that's investigating Ryan's dad's murder.

Narrator goes bust

Normally, I love Ms. Blakely's books. However, Josh Goodman was not a solid narrator for this book. When I picture him I see him as 5 feet tall, and not at all the take charge man he's supposed to be.

Unreadable drivel.

What would have made Sinful Desire better?

An actual story that you could bother going past 2 hours of listening. The male and female lead characters are putrid. They are weird and pathetic and deserve each other. Her flirting and subservient nature combined with his alpha male 'I will control you" attitude are ridiculous and non-interesting stereotypes. And the email exchanges - oh dear me.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Nothing by this author. I don't know why or how they could write this junk.

How could the performance have been better?

Characters that are at least mildly interesting and narration that makes you want to read more, not throw up your lunch.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.

Any additional comments?

The storyless, mindless, gratuitous intimate scenes are creepy and a joke at the same time. Didn't make it past the second lot of email exchanges. After enduring the first lot, they did me in on this book.

Great Series So Far

Ryan and Sophie are awesome together. It's nice to see some variety in the romance department because face it, we aren't all alike in that respect. There is such a feeling of support and love between Ryan and his siblings, and Sophie just rounds out the picture. Gotta admit, I loved that ending, or maybe that was a segue into the next book...

Exciting Sexy Romance!

What made the experience of listening to Sinful Desire the most enjoyable?

Josh has wonderful inflection, making the whole experience fascinating and exciting!

Any additional comments?

I loved this second book in the Sinful Desire series! It was perfectly titled being sinfully sexy, and seductive. Ryan Sloan meets Sophie Winston by chance when he goes to the police station to answer questions about his father's reopened murder case. Ryan and Sophie have instant attraction and chemistry. Ryan has kept his mother's secrets since he was a boy making him feel like he has no control in his life. He has a hard time opening up to anyone but his family. Sophie is an intelligent, successful entrepreneur turned philanthropist. She is planning and organizing constantly and longs for someone to command her so she can live in the moment. Ryan loves how Sophie is confident, direct and a bit naughty. He needs to be in charge of her pleasure because it helps him feel the control he craves. They challenge each other in every way making them perfectly matched. Their relationship grew beautifully, revealing their pasts and secrets, bit by bit. I loved how they worked through their differences and misunderstandings without all the agony and angst. The drama was reserved for the continuing mystery of who might be involved with Ryan's father's murder and his mother's involvement. The mystery and suspense along with the plot twists keep you guessing what will happen next. This story was a perfect blend of an intriguing story, genuine characters, witty and intelligent banter, and scorching hotness! I loved every word in this story and can't wait to read more in Colin and Elle’s book!

Sinful Disires

This book took me a bit of getting into, but once I did I really enjoyed it. There where many twists and turns some of which are still to come to light for the main charactors.

Wow

This was a great romance. An instant attraction with a great continuing storyline to go along with it. A few home truths that were devastating for Ryan, but all worked out in the end.
Narration was awesome too.
