Although in love, Brent and Shannon's relationship didn't survive their careers taking them in different directions. Neither are willing to give up opportunities that suddenly appear for them both. A lack of maturity on both of their parts meant that the relationship that they had begun to build just couldn't survive the pressures the first time around. Neither Brent nor Shannon were wrong in what they wanted; it just meant that what they wanted professionally didn't line up with what they wanted in a relationship. After being separated for years and both having success in their careers being brought back together means a second chance at happiness.
Once Brent and Shannon are together again the sparks fly and things between them burn hot and fast despite Shannon's attempts to not fall back into Brent. Good gravy Brent! I never once thought "Hey, I bet a comedy writer would be sexy" but Blakely has made me a believer that a man with a sense of humor can make a super sexy hero. Witty, flirty, and a little dirty Blake is wonderful! Although Shannon is smart, talented, and confident in her own right with a man like Blake in pursuit she didn't stand a chance!
SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS is a seductive contemporary romance that can make even the most seasoned of romance readers blush. Erotic, descriptive, and even fun there is no way that I could have walked away from this story. The secondary characters are just as entertaining as Brent and Shannon. Shannon's brothers are sure to provide much more entertainment in the following books. The only problem? The ending isn't a cliffhanger but it leaves you chomping for more!
**I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.**

ABOUT SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS:
A sexy, suspenseful new romance novel from Lauren Blakely, author of the New York Times Bestselling Seductive Nights series….
She was the one who got away…
Ten years ago, Brent Nichols let the love of his life slip through his fingers. It’s his greatest regret, especially since she’s all but disappeared. But when the gorgeous and captivating woman walks into his life unexpectedly, he’s determined to win her back. Whatever it takes, he won’t make the same mistake twice.
Easier said than done…
Shannon Paige has hardened her heart to the man she was once engaged to be married to. After the way he left, and after the hell she’s been through with her checkered family, there’s no way she’s letting him into her life again. The problem is, the second she sees him, he’s more handsome and charming than before. And she’s torn between wanting to fight with him and wanting to sleep with him - maybe both. Soon they fall into each other’s arms, consumed with a desire that burns through the years. But if these two fiery lovers are going to have a real second chance at this kind of intense, passionate, bone-deep love, he’ll have to give her his whole heart, and she’ll have to give up all the secrets from her messy past. And that messy past is about to spill over into her carefully constructed present… SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS is book one in SINFUL NIGHTS, a four-book series. Each book will follow a new couple.
