Forbidden Nights (Seductive Nights 5) by Lauren Blakely, Narrated by Sebastian York
Adult Contemporary Romance/Erotic. Can easily Stand alone
Lauren Blakely has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I’ve been listening to the Seductive Nights Series as they go on sale, then I grab the audiobook upgrade, so I am sadly listening out of order, but I’m still loving it. Sebastian York narrating just makes a sexy book even sexier….sigh.
Nate is a hotel CEO, and Casey is the new head of Joy Delivered, a high end sex toy company. Both powerful businesspeople who travel a lot, they have been close friends for a while. Nate has always had illicit thoughts about Casey, but kept it in his pants for the sake of friendship.
When Casey gets rejected by another guy who thinks she is too controlling in bed, she decides she needs to learn how to please men better. So she turns to her good friend Nate.
Nate takes that challenge, even though he thinks she’s awesome submissive or dominant. But he takes the challenge well…..mmmmmmm….I can’t not moan here.
“Say my name,” he commanded, breaking the kiss, his voice rough and needy and so damn hungry for her. “Nate,” she moaned, as he gripped her hips. “Say it again. Say my name as you come. Tell me who’s fucking you.”
I loved that Nate and Casey were both professional, experienced businesspeople, not kids just starting out. Their friendship, trust and respect for each other shone through in every interaction.
Nate can be so, so dirty and delicious. He is an amazing dirty talker, and the things he does in bed are so hot. He has no problem with her taking the lead, even though he is a total alpha, because he respects her as an alpha too. But it’s Nate’s knowledge of how to take care of a woman that I fell for the most.
“Romantic is taking care of a woman. It’s being attuned to her needs. It’s listening to her. It’s making her feel beautiful, inside and out, because she is. It’s knowing her favorite dish, and picking it up on the way home. It’s giving her your coat when she’s cold, and holding open the door, and it’s making sure she has everything she needs before a big meeting.”
Sigh….he’s just so perfect!
- I want a Lola that makes you feel like you’re being licked and fucked at the same time.
- I want a Sebastian York, or Nate. Either or both is fine 🙂
- Perfect friends turned lovers story.
- Nate is dirty and delicious, yet romantic and a good friend.
- Despite the good amount of sex, there was a lot of story, and I love how both of their businesses were worked into the storyline.
- The story was light and fun.
- Loved the last words before the epilogue.
- 3rd person (but really good 3rd person).
The Down & Dirty:
Rating: 4.75 stars (1st person would have been 5), 5 Heat, 5 narration
