I've been waiting not so patiently for this final book in the Sinful Nights series and as I should have known, Lauren Blakely made it worth the wait!!
Michael Sloan is a man that has been in love with and has never forgotten his first love Annalise the French foreign exchange student he thought was his future when they were in high school together. Unfortunately, as sometimes happens, life got in the way and went in directions neither of them ever expected. With the murder of Michael's father, the life he had planned on with Annalise never came to fruition. And even though Michael never truly fell in love with anyone else. Annalise did which put just one more obstacle in their way.
Fast forward sixteen years when both of them are free and clear at least in the romance side of their lives. Although Annalise is still mourning the loss of her husband and Michael is still working to find the people involved with the murder of his father. When Annalise is going to be in Las Vegas for a job, she contacts Michael to see if they can get together. This sets us up for the most romantic and swoonworthy of the four books in my opinion. These two, even after all these years apart, have an undeniable draw towards each other. Although there is trepidation on Annalise's part about finally seeing Michael after all these years....
"How do you just have a drink with someone you once thought you'd marry? Someone who was your everything? She'd been his rock; he'd been her hope."
When Michael sees her for the first time, his heart is still so full of love for her and he's hoping she can find her way to feeling the same way about him. What is definitely undeniable is their blasting off the charts sexual chemistry. They're both adults now so the innocent love they had back in high school has been replaced with the kind of heat that can only be garnered with experience and the sexual desires of an adult.....
"Her heady moans, her breathy gasps, told him she was a woman consumed. He could smell her need, could feel it radiating off of her. She was a tuning fork, vibrating at the highest frequency of desire."
As they spend more time together and they each fall deeper in love as the people they are today, they both want whatever they can get together. The problem is that Annalise lives in France, Michael in Las Vegas and there's the issue of finding the evidence against the Royal Sinners and those involved with his father's murder. It all seems to lead to dead ends.....until it doesn't!!!
Mistakes are made by some key players, that have either been overlooked by the authorities or they were hiding their activities so well, it never occurred to anyone these people could be involved with something so heinous as the murder of another human being. And Annalise may have the key to some of this information. it seems like it's more than fortuitous that Michael and Annalise have reconnected all these years later. While Michael knows how he feels about her, he doesn't know if she has the same feelings but he does know that he doesn't want to lose what he knows is his destiny....
"This was his fate in life, to fall in love with the same woman over and over."
As the book progresses and details are revealed, I literally sat on my couch with my mouth open not expecting to read what I was reading. The way Ms. Blakely has written this entire series, culminating with the capture of the person and/or persons involved with the events that changed everyone's lives so many years ago is done brilliantly!!! It flows so well from present day to the past and back again creating the sense of urgency in me that I just kept saying one more chapter over and over again... I HAD to finish the book because I HAD to know how this all played out.
Can Michael and Annalise have the love and life they so richly deserve and want? How will all the secrets that have been kept for so many years affect everyone? Who is behind their father's murder and do they get their comeuppance for destroying their family all those years ago?
All of this will be answered when you read this final chapter of the Sinful Nights series. And if you're like me, you'll have a serious book hangover when you turn that last page!!!
Michael Sloan is now coming face to face with Annalise Delacroix his "What if?" girl. She was his "one that got away" and who he unconsciously measures all other women by. They were young and had many teenage dreams, but lost them all when their lives went different directions. And soon after his life took an even harder turn due to a family tragedy. Now eighteen years after their young love affair initially began, they have a chance to meet again.
There is such an intense chemistry and true connection between these two tempered with so much regret and both fond and heartbreaking memories. They are each other's ghost from the past. But the affinity, sparks, and interest come roaring back quickly.
They both have issues and challenges, some of them are the same that broke them apart in the first place. They have both changed over the years due to circumstances. Annalise has suffered loss and has been virtually dormant the last couple of years. She is trying to find a way to live again and move on, but she feels guilt at the thought of doing so.
Michael has been emotionally unavailable, but was not really sure why until seeing her again. He is caring, vulnerable, protective, and at times insecure. But he is also afraid of getting attached again and getting hurt, so his heart has been guarded. But the passionate pull is hard to resist, and they both think they can finally give into temptation, have all of each other, and be able to move on without further regret.
As adults, they are more intense, needy, and desperate to come together. Michael brings out her hidden wild side with his hot, alpha, naughty ways. They both had walls up, but now they are breaking down and unlocking their feelings, passion, and fears. But there are built in complications around their lives that would have to be addressed in order to move forward.
Their pasts, their life experiences, their personal challenges, and distance all affected their ability to believe in a future together and hope to hold onto it. They both also had so much healing to do and fears to overcome.
Are the fates that tore them apart now on their side? Or are they destined to end up hurt and alone again?
There is a lot to this story that is heartfelt, sweet, renewing, and romantic. It is also scorching hot and steamy. Sweet, sensitive Michael is also a dirty-talking beast in the bedroom(or any other location that strikes their fancy). And it is also thought-provoking, intriguing, and suspenseful as they peel back the last layers of the mystery of his father's murder. Finally all of the answers are gradually revealed and the big picture comes into focus.
This installment is about facing the past, living life in the present, and the healing power of love. They have an unforgettable bond that traversed time, distance and heartbreak. The romantic portion was an emotional, tender, sexy, and a heartwarming second-chance love story. But it was also a mystery and suspense tale that finally brought all of the pieces of the puzzle together. It was full of twists and surprises. It was told in many points of view giving us access to many character's motivations and feelings. We got to see the present, but also flashes into the past. It kept me guessing and trying to figure out how it would all come together and it kept me completely enthralled and emotionally invested.
I loved getting more with all of the series regulars: Brent and Shannon, Ryan and Sophie, Colin and Elle, Marcus, Mindy, and John. They have all played a part in solving the mystery and have provided much needed support and guidance for each other. And I get all excited when Lauren throws in some little character crossovers. This series gave us beautiful, fun, sexy love stories while building on a tragic family past and mystery that needed to be unraveled. All along we have gathered information about the case and I love that we finally get the chance to see resolution. I was even surprised at some of the details.
I have adored all of the couples, but I have to say that Michael and Annalise have become my fave of this series. I really enjoyed both of their personalities, passion, and their relationship built on both fondness from the past and an intense bond in the present. Michael Sloan was a swoon-worthy, hot alpha hero with just enough heart, tenderness, loyalty, and protectiveness to make him completely lovable and charismatic. And Annalise was a wonderful match for him both in his past and present. This is coming from a fan who always wanted to see Michael coupled with Mindy (and made that quite clear to Lauren during the plotting stage), so the fact that she won me over is saying something.
I was so thrilled to get a full epilogue. I will miss these characters, but if anyone deserves happiness, it is the Paige-Prince (Sloan) siblings. This was an epic romantic journey and a satisfying conclusion to the mystery embedded in this quartet. It was everything I hoped it would be and more.
Am also extremely elated that Michael Sloane who has scarificed the most in terms of himself for his siblings get his HEA. Rekindling with his one and only true love Annalise as returns to Las Vegas on a job assignment.
Their romance doesn't exactly pick up where they left off so many years ago as Michael is extremely guarded and Annelise is dealing with moving on from the death of her late husband. However, their love was always special and cannot be denied or resisted.
With the case involving the death of his father coming closer to being solved. Michael is more determined than ever to close this chapter of his life by doing everything he can to aid the officers working on the case. So much in this twist is revealed but the Sloane family finally gets the peace of mind and justice they seek in the end and Michael and Annalise get their peace also.
I absolutely enjoyed this story and series. :Sidenote -I would have love to see John get a spinoff book but happy he got and HEA also with Mindy. Great job once again Lauren. 5 well deserved stars.
