About the Book!
A red-hot, scorching, sexy standalone romance novel from NYT and USA Today Bestselling author 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, and she's cried out his name in pleasure countless times in his fabulously filthy fantasies. But even though he's quite skilled at pleasing a woman, 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...And the lessons in seduction threaten to turn into so much more than either one bargained for...
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 SEDUCTIVE NIGHTS series following the love affair of Nate and Casey. There is no cliffhanger in this book! You can read FORBIDDEN NIGHTS on its own, but you would likely enjoy the other books too.*
Erotica by Lauren Blakely always puts a big smile on my face. I've loved every book in this series but this one is definitely my absolute favorite! This is a perfect choice for fans of friends to lovers storylines. Nate and Casey are so amazing together... the chemistry between these two was extremely erotic and steamy!
Casey is an Alpha Female business woman... she knows what she wants and goes after it but she has a little trouble in the romance department. She took a hit on her self confidence in the bedroom by an ex. Having decided she needed to learn to be more submissive and give up control, she turns to her best friend Nate for guidance and lessons.
Nate, having been burned by love in the past is perfectly content with his playboy lifestyle. He's always been fiercely attracted to Casey but never crossed that line due their strong friendship. But, he simply can't turn down an opportunity to be with her, even if it is just temporary.
Each time they come together, the emotions and connection that they feel for each other gets stronger and stronger. The author did such a beautiful job describing their intimate connections, feelings and emotions. I could feel their passion, need and love for each other so strongly. For me this was so much more than just erotica... it was a beautiful love story as well.
I really liked that Nate helped Casey to understand that she should never change who she is for anyone else. I loved his character immensely... a lover of animals, a juggler, a babysitter! But most of all... a man who knows how to love a woman with all his heart. He's my new favorite ideal man!
There is one scene in the book that I have gone back and read several times because I loved it so much... I have to share it... it is the best kissing scene I've read in a while:
(view spoiler)The kiss told her so much... that he was sorry for being late, that he'd missed her for the last several hours he'd been without her, and that this was the best part of his day. Hers too. This kiss was air, it was breath, and it was her heart on her sleeve. In the soft, slow sweep of his lips, in the hungry sighs they both made, in an instant, this kiss was everything. Her heel popped up. There it was. The final proof that no one had ever kissed her like he did, and no one probably ever would.
**sigh** I heart you Lauren Blakely... :)))
Do I recommend?? Of course I do...
