    Holy Man Batman, I thought the last book ended with a bang this one blew that one out of the water! I can’t get enough of this family of this mystery. Add in a romance and I am hooked. I love the different POV’s it adds that extra suspense I didn’t know I needed. The fact each POV has their own narrator too, perfection. Colin and Elle are the sweetest, I love that they were friends first it really helped me connect with them before they were a couple it gives that little extra step.

Colin and Elle are the sweetest, I love that they were friends first it really helped me connect with them before they were a couple it gives that little extra step. I am not one for insta love. So the fact that they had the chemistry but gave each other time for it to grow before they couldn’t resist it any longer, that to me is the best kind of stories. We learn all sorts of things about the case in this book and we get more of John’s POV which I am really intrigued by I want to know more I hope we get more of his POV in the next book. Speaking of off to start that one right now!

I love how the mystery has been slowly unfolding in the books, and for that reason, this book and series should be read/listened to in order. Colin and Elle were wonderful.

I loved how their relationship developed gradually and how well they knew each other. They both have their own demons, but have overcome so much to be better versions of themselves. The build up between them was fantastic and I loved their chemistry. There were a few bumps along the way, but I appreciated that there wasn't any unnecessary drama between them. Zachary Webber and Ava Erickson both lived up to the 'sinful' title and were perfect as Colin and Elle. They made the sexy times scorching hot and I may have had to fan myself a time or two. There are lots of secondary characters, subplots, and POV's in this series and it's been so helpful to have different narrators cast for these roles. I especially enjoyed Tim Paige as Marcus and Scott Brick as John. Speaking of John, I could feel those sparks fly between him and Mindy and I'm hoping that gets explored in the future. The story concludes with quite the bombshell regarding the family mystery and it has me eager to listen to the next book.

I love the storyline, and I have to say it’s getting a little more tense in places as the detective starts closing in on his suspects. Secrets are coming out and and we’re getting a clearer picture as to the comings and goings in the life of Dora Prince, who, let’s face it, is at the centre of this whole series. What a mystery she is. Book 3 focusses on the youngest sibling, and twin to Shannon, Colin, as he tries to work out his feelings for his friend Elle Mariano, who because of a previous toxic relationship is giving off mixed signals, mainly because she’s fighting her attraction to Colin. I cannot get enough of this series, so, yes I’m diving straight into the fourth audio. I have no idea who chooses the narrators, is it The author? I’m guessing so, because so far this series they’ve been spot on for each character. Pure perfection. If you’re a bit of an audio junky like myself, you already know that Lauren Blakely always seems to have the best narrators, and Zachary Webber and Ava Erickson are no exception.

    I absolutely love how the suspense theme untwists a bit more in each book of the series. I especially love that the next book picks up right where the last one left off, but from a different character's perspective. The romance aspect of this story is sweet and touching with enough heat to get your motor humming! As always the narration is excellent and helps bring the characters to life while enhancing an already well written cast and plot.

    I’m appreciating more and more the strategy of voicing each POV separately and identifying which character is talking. There are so many characters right now that it’ll be confusing if they’re all mixed up in the same chapter. The friends-to-lovers romance between Elle and Colin is pretty sweet. I like that their background stories are realistic. I also enjoyed this series’s strong sense of place. Las Vegas comes alive in these books. Another bombshell of an ending.

I love all of the characters in this series. Lauren continually brings new aspects of their personalities, interactions, secrets, lies into the story without overwhelming you. Lauren is one of my favorite authors, but I honestly had no idea she was also a master at plot-twisting readers into submission! Just when I think I have an idea what is going on with the underlying suspenseful story I am proven wrong - again and again. Each book layers on more surprises, more complications, JUST MORE! Zachary and Ava once again reminded me why I am addicted to audiobooks. Stellar performances hook you on the characters as you feel all of the emotions along with them. They pull you in so you get lost in the story and experience the desire, the need, the reluctance, the elation, the burning in your soul reaching for another. The other multi-cast supporting narrators are all top notch and perfectly portray each character. The series just keeps getting better!

    *Audio Review* 4 STARS The suspense continues in My Sinful Longing! Lauren Blakely has outdone herself with this series. I have been addicted to the storyline and how everything connects to past and present since book 1 and the saga continues. What is going on with Dora Prince and who really killed their father? So many questions we still need answers to but I am 100 percent invested and will be start book 4 immediately. Colin is the twin brother to Shannon who I adored in My Sinful Nights.

I loved getting to know more about him. He adores Elle and has a protective side but a super sweet side as well. I adored Elle. She is super sweet and caring and adores her job and has passion for the kids in the Youth Center. There was conflict between these two once a secret is revealed but they handled it well and were stronger in the end. The chemistry, connection and steamy scenes with these two were off the charts. Narration done by Zachary Webber and Ava Erickson. LOVE their voices, they bring the voices of Colin and Elle to life. Tim Paige did a great job as Marcus as well.

    This third book in the Sinful Men series continues to keep us engaged, excited and craving more of the Sloan family and the intriguing mystery that surrounds them.

This story features sexy, tattooed bad boy, Colin Sloan and Elle Mariano, owner of the at-risk Youth Center, and kick ass roller derby skater. Colin and Elle met when Colin volunteered to help at the Youth Center. Colin has turned his life around from street thug and addict in his youth to a kind, thoughtful, and generous entrepreneur. He is a math wiz who is a genius at assessing risks. Elle is a compassionate, loyal single mom who doesn't like to take risk except when she is skating or in bed with Colin. They have a passionate 'friends with benefits' relationship that Colin wants to take further but because Elle is so protective of her son she holds herself back. Colin is determined to show her that he is a risk worth taking for her and for her son. They are so perfect together because they both assess risk, but from different angles. They are smart, like to have fun, and their dirty talking and fiery passion make them combustible between the sheets. I loved how their relationship grew at an honest pace from casual to emotional. I also love how Ms. Blakely writes adult characters who do not thrive on angst but work through their differences and short comings. The series long mystery arc continues to grow adding suspense and intrigue. It answers some questions but creates more with it's twists and turns. The ending was a real shock that I never saw coming! I loved the performances by narrators Zachary Webber, and Ava Erickson. They portray each character with a perfect balance between fun & flirty, heartbreaking emotion, and sizzling passion flawlessly. They work so well together as they bring this sweet, sexy, and emotional story to life. I also loved the fantastic cameos throughout the book from Maxine Mitchell, Tim Paige, and Scott Brick. Ms. Blakely continues to find brilliant ways to keep this series sexy and intriguing. I can't wait to see what she has in store for Michael and how she will continue this exciting mystery!

But one night, she gives in and sees just how good they are together. But with his past and the secret she is keeping, will they be able to find their happily ever after? I love Elle! She has to be my favorite of the women so far. Bold and protective, she is the ultimate mom to Alex and I love it. Colin has a warmth about him, that all the brothers have that is easily draws me in (Ryan is still my favorite though!). Blakely continues the main story of the series with gusto. Introducing Marcus has wreaked havoc, but also brought a new source of closeness for the brothers. It is that element of suspense that is keeping me intrigued, and I can't wait to see what is in store next. This narration team is excellent as always. You can 't go wrong with Zachary Webber and Ava Erickson, but the standout for me is Tim Paige. He is perfect as Marcus and he adds that extra excitement with this character as he begins to meld into the family. I am enjoying all the cameos of the others as it really adds to the consistency of the listen. It's a pleasure.

Colin's life is pretty turbulent since the investigation into his father's murder has recently been reopened, and he finds he's ready to find more meaning in his relationships, especially with Elle. The mystery that started in the first book and really got going in the second has some intense and surprising revelations in this story. Connections that you'd never expect are revealed, and these details are brilliantly threaded throughout Colin and Elle's blossoming relationship. They get a very satisfying HEA for the romance, while everything regarding the murder investigation is left wide open and headed in an entirely new direction. I really enjoyed this story, and I am immensely enjoying the entire Sloan family story arc throughout all the books. All the various characters are very well-developed, and the use of multiple first-person POV really keeps the intensity amped up from start to finish. I can't wait to see how it all wraps up. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

I really loved seeing them give into each other and I loved when they were together. I also enjoyed the underlying situation that has started from the first book. More and more clues are being introduced and I can’t wait to see how it all plays out. Once again Lauren has woven a story that I can not get enough of. Everything flowed so nicely. I’m so excited for the next book in the series and seeing where Lauren takes us.

    Loving the series, and this story! Colin and Elle have a beautiful slow burn going on. Although Colin wants to jump right in, I love that he gives Elle the time she needs. He’s respecting what she’s been through, and all he’s learned about her during their friendship. Colin learns about Elle’s past, and he understands her reluctance in getting w/him. Elle also learns more about Colin’s family, and how his past has shaped him. I also loved how open Colin was about his issues with drugs and alcohol Loving the series, and this story!

Everything with this case just seems so much more explosive this time around. The emotions feel stronger, the chemistry and love is so, so hot! Zachary and Ava do a wonderful job narrating. The supporting cast is also great. Not, onto Michael’s story...

    My Sinful Longing is another great addition to this series. I loved Colin just as much as I loved Ryan in the previous book.

    My Sinful Longing is the third book in the revamped Sinful Men Series by the talented Lauren Blakely. The story is better than the original! It's deeper and lighter, but with the same sexiness, suspense and overall feeling! This is Colin's story. He has a past. He has baggage, but he's overcome it all. Colin is sexy as sin with his tattoos and vests and Elle is gorgeous with her tattoos and giant heart. When things start to really heat up between them, will a secret kill his feelings for her?

It's the quiet sexy. He has a tortured soul, but the ink on his body tells his story. He's a survivor. He's a lover. He's a math genius. He loves his family something fierce and he wants Elle and isn't going to stop until he gets her. Audio: Zachary and Ava are perfect as Colin and Elle! The additional narrators just make this story better!

    With each book, I become more invested into this whole case. Each book certainly tops each other. This was a love story between Elle and Collin. However we are properly introduced to Marcus, Collin’s little half brother. The man in the Buick finally has a face and a name. This book had a lot of chapters from Marcus and this makes me want to have a book that is solely on him.

The moments that change you may take you by surprise. And this bit of information certainly took the whole family by surprise. Nothing could stop Collin from wanting Elle. He lived by the motto of: Nothing ventured, nothing gained.(take big chances) and that is what he did. Their love is new beginnings. They found their way home to each other.

Once this book finally caught up to where book two ended, things happened fast and furious leaving me with another crazy bomb drop at the end… what the heck! I am trying to process it all in my mind, how is this possible… I never saw the end coming!

    Mystery and intrigue mixed in with friends-to-lovers romance. I’m loving this re-imagined series by Lauren Blakely. It’s got more suspense and mystery than is usual for her books, but that only adds to the enjoyment of the story. Colin and Elle were a sweet partnership, being friends first puts the whole should we/ shouldn’t we back and forth into the plot. They had chemistry even though they were only friends to begin with and it was fun watching them find their true feelings and falling for eac Mystery and intrigue mixed in with friends-to-lovers romance.

Meanwhile, the whole murder mystery is still chugging away as Detective Wilson digs ever deeper for answers. His separate POV was intriguing and made me want to know more… about the man and the case. Hopefully, more answers will be found in the next book; My Sinful Love.

    Building power... Book three in the series has some intense building power for the series. Colin and Elle's relationship intensifies as it moves from the friendzone but outside forces threaten their progress and their safety.

Wow... that just sounds like a deliciously sexy and scandalous soap opera, doesn't it? In a way, it kind of is but much more developed characters and a lot better writing. The whole A-list cast of narrators has been a delight to list to so far. I'm loving it and so ready to start the next in the series.

    🎧 Audio Review 🎧 Another great re-imagined book in this series. I enjoyed the originals but these new versions are so much better. Colin and Elle were a great couple. They had chemistry and when things got a little hard, they fixed it and moved forwards. This book wasn't as steamy as book 2 but still have plenty of hot scenes. I loved the twist in the main story line and can't wait to see what's in store for the rest other brothers. The narration was great.

    Good book. Fabulous narration but there are WAAAYYY more narrators in there than are credited. Did you hear Teddy Hamilton? Yes he’s there. Towards the end. Does anyone have a full cast list including uncredited? There are so many my head is spinning and I’ve lost count. Most I can identify but one or 2 I did not know (not surprising lol I only listen to Zachary Webber and Jacob Morgan! Jk) Anyone?

    Colin is 8 years sober and wants a woman who's first husband died of a drug overdose. She has a 14 year son ... they struggle with being together. This book gives me mixed feelings... wishing the author wouldn't introduce you a ton of characters in a singular book. I understand it's a series but no main focus on the main character.

    Audio - 3.5-4 Good storyline. I’m not a fan of mystery but it’s not detrimental to the series. Colin was not better than Ryan. Ryan was hot and all around sexy and I loved it. Anyway, Ellie and Colin were good together and I loved the aspect of the community center. This story was more about the drama/mystery and his mom. Not so much the love story in my opinion. Will check out what’s next.
