A sinfully sexy standalone novel from #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely!
She has been the star of his dirty dreams for years.
Sexy hotel CEO Nate Harper has lusted after his good friend Casey Sullivan for a long time, but he won't act on his intense desire because he knows he's no good for her. After the kind of hurt his ex inflicted on him, he's a committed playboy for life, and Casey only wants true love.
All that changes one hot night when she comes to him with a proposition he can't resist -- she wants him to teach her to be submissive in the bedroom.
Casey soon learns how very much she likes letting go of control to him. She's never been more turned on in her life than she is in Nate's arms. And he's never been more taken by a woman.
The only trouble is as she experiences what it means to let go, he starts to experience what it means to feel again...
What happens when years of desire and lust ignite a passion that can't be denied?
*FORBIDDEN NIGHTS is a standalone full-length novel in the bestselling JOY DELIVERED duet following the love affair of Nate and Casey. There is no cliffhanger in this book! *
Great story read in one day.55
This book has some of the hottest sex in it I've ever read. It was a good story but can this woman write the sex (I'm fanning myself).55
You know those authors that you look forward to every single book they release and one-click the moment you know it's out?? Well Lauren is definitely one of those for me. I was looking forward to this book for so long!!! The teasers had me so anxious to read it. With school and everything it took me more that I'd like to get through it, but I enjoyed it so much I was also happy to extend the reading time. Once again Lauren has blown me away with emotion and hot, steamy scenes. I mean I love the entire series and all the other couples, Clay and Julia, but wow! Nate and Casey might just be moving up the list!! Definitely a hot and steamy read!55
4.5 hot hot stars!! Forbidden Nights was a deliciously hot and very entertaining story! Sometimes when you read erotica the story takes the back seat to all the scorching sex, but Lauren Blakely doesn't follow this line of thinking (thank goodness), the story of Nate and Casey had me instantly invested in these characters (and the sex is Kindle melting hot)! It is no secret that I love a good friends to lovers romance, but once again Lauren Blakely takes a common plot theme and makes it her own in a delicious and addicting way. I had a VERY hard time putting this book down! Forbidden Nights, while a part of the Seductive Nights series, can be read as a stand alone (I read it this way and had no problems). For some reason I haven't been good keeping up with this series but I will definitely be going back to read the other books in the series soon! Silly me, I had forgotten how AMAZING Lauren Blakey's books are! You are guaranteed to love everything she writes! Lauren Blakely's writing is easy to get swept up in and in a blink I was done and left craving more! Nate and Casey are a refreshing change to your typical main characters in contemporary romance. I loved that there was no angsty drama, just the perfect amout of tension combined with heat and a bit of romance. Nate and Casey are friends, but Casey needs help learning to let go of her "control issues" in the bedroom and Nate (being the best friend a girl could want) decides he can help Casey learn to "let it all go" with him. Nate was playful, patient and willing to try anything with Casey to help her with her "mission". Casey wasn't a doormat, just the opposite, she was a "go get them" type and scared off many men with her take charge personality. Watching Nate and Casey come together and learn how they bring out the best in each other was a great time (but get some ice water because, whew, things get HOT!) Lauren Blakely writes one HOT story that proves you can have heat and still have some sweet. If you are looking for a story that has heart, heat and an interesting plot, then Forbidden Nights is for you! Fans of Lauren and the Seductive Nights series will fall in love with Nate and Casey and enjoy the peaks at past characters too. Lauren Blakely is one of my auto-read Authors and her writing NEVER disappoints! I can't wait to see what she comes out with next!55
I have been waiting with jittery anticipation for Forbidden Nights and was not disappointed. Lauren Blakely shared an fabulous friends to lovers story that was the perfect balance of sweet & spicy. I adored Nate & Casey so much and the beauty of their relationship popped off the page/screen. I can't wait for the next book!!55
Another brilliant read from Lauren Blakely, but this one is hotter than the last. How does she do it?55
I have read all of Lauren's books. She writes with such brilliance that you just can't put her books down. One of my favorite things about her books, early and recent, is all the connections. Forbidden Nights is the story of Nate Harper (Kat's brother) and Casey Sullivan (Jack's sister). Nate and Casey have been friends for years and Nate has been harboring feelings for her from the beginning. Casey has no idea how her flirting and friendliness affects Nate. He desperately wants to make a move but doesn’t want to ruin their friendship. Then, an amazing opportunity presents itself; Casey is interested in a man that wants her to be submissive and she needs to learn how. So, she approaches Nate and asks him to teach her how to submit. Nate hesitates for about three seconds and then the games begin. He shows her how to let go and let the man lead. How to close her eyes and just feel. Casey is shocked that she likes giving up control, in fact she's never been more turned on in her life. She begins to see Nate in a new light. She always thought he was gorgeous, but now, she's seeing a whole new side of Nate and she loves it. Nate is convinced he can't love her, that he will only hurt her, but he can't walk away. Somewhere along the line, feelings change, secrets come out and hearts get broken. Can Nate and Casey admit their true feelings before it's too late? Will their friendship survive the submissive games? Along with long past characters, we get to see my man, JACK! Thank you, Lauren! Words like delicious, stimulation, and molten desire fell from her tongue and landed right in his lap. “Your whole body is a playground,” he instructed. “For now, until you learn to thoroughly give up control, it will be my playground. Isn’t that right, Casey?” “Sometimes, it’s just kissing her because she needs to be kissed, and because you can’t help yourself when it comes to her,” he said “Hey, Bryan. Remember that time nine or ten years ago when you stayed at my house for two weeks the summer after business school, and fell in love with my sister and didn’t tell me about it?” Can. Not. Think. Straight. Now. All. Blood. Diverted. South. Of. The. Border.55
