    My Sinful Temptation was a great addition to the Sinful Men series. As a reader who has followed the Sloan family through the previous four books, I personally was excited to know this was coming. John played a really important part in the previous four books and I started getting attached to him. Mindy was the same. They were secondary characters in each previous book but I was rooting for them to get together.

I got to know them both better as the leading characters. They had their own obstacles to get through from actually getting together to how to stay together. But it unfolded perfectly. I loved this story and feel like this was really the perfect ending to the series.

    Awe I am so glad we got this short story of John and Mindy. You could feel their attraction in other books so getting their story is bitter sweet because it means the series is over. I did enjoy the end because it gave us a little of what the Sloan family is like after. Great epilogue. The narration as always was perfect.

    A short, sweet, and steamy friends-to-lovers romance that serves its purpose as a fan service. John and Mindy’s story is low in conflict and meant to be. This is essentially a novella-length epilogue to the Sinful Men series.

I thoroughly recommend the Sinful Men series if you enjoy hunky alpha males, sexy romance, with some suspense thrown in, among the lights of Las Vegas. This was a great read.

    Book 5 in the Sinful Nights series and each can be read as a standalone. A great addition to the series. I really enjoyed Mindy and John’s story. They were friends first but each had a secret longing to be with the other. Great storyline and wonderful characters. Loved this quick read.

Mindy was shy and reserved about her attraction to John but once she realizes he feels the same John becomes so much more to her. I loved this entire series and the extended epilogue and being able to check in one last time with all the Sloans. Lauren Blakely has written the perfect short story to end off this series. The narration by Samantha Cook and Scott Brick was perfectly done. Loved it!

I can’t believe it’s been four years since the last book and I am so looking forward to reading the re-written version of the series. I loved it the first time around so I know I will fall even harder now. But, this one is brand new! If you read the series then you have met Mindy and John. She works private security for hotels. He was a detective. They both had demanding jobs. They even worked a case together but that wasn’t the first time they met. It was at an engagement party. Even then John wanted her but knew his work wouldn’t allow him to give her his all. And now, a year later, it was still the case but he did make time for her friendship. They were gym buddies. Sparring partners. He loved to watch her sweat and at the same time it was torture. He wanted her sweating in other ways. Making those sexy grunts and purrs in his bed. He maintained his willpower until he just...couldn’t. Mindy felt the sparks. She always did but it looked like friendship was in the cards for them. She didn’t know how he felt so they stayed in the friend-zone until something changed. It wasn’t a boom! It was a slow burn and it was worth it. So fucking worth it. She was on cloud 9 until she had to decide if she should stay or she should go. Stay in Las Vegas to see what could happen next or go on a new adventure... Wow!! I can’t believe that was a novella. It’s was full of story, heat, love, family, and decisions. I even cried and that’s hard to do in a short amount of time. That’s how much I loved these characters. It was a fun,flirty and sinful ride. i loved every minute of it! Quotes: There was just something hot as sin about a woman who knew how to channel her frustration into the physical. This kiss felt like he wanted to memorize every detail of my lips, my skin, my taste. And I wanted that too. The prospect of this calm, measured, in-charge man losing control was intoxicating.

    Nice side story about a couple of friends/relations of the Sloan family. Both John and Mindy helped with the case in the earlier books but with things wrapped up, it was finally time for them. Simple and sweet - worked for me! I listened to the audio with Scott Brick and Samantha Cook narrating and enjoyed it too.

But I always wanted to see something happen with Detective John Winston and Mindy Gamble. They were there not only to assist with the case, but as friends to these couples during some challenging times. And I always thought I saw a spark there. Now this series has had a reboot into first-person point of view and some added embellishments to the storylines, so it is a wonderful time to revisit. And I was so glad that the author has now given us a fifth book. It is a novella about John and Mindy, but also acts as an extended epilogue for all of the couples in this series. John has been married to his work and when he is on a case it consumes him. But seeing his sister and friends find love has made him rethink a bit. He is thoughtful, intelligent, loyal, and all man, but he is still not sure how much he has to give a relationship. He has had the hots for Mindy for a while but has missed opportunities and now they seem to be comfortable in the friend zone. Mindy has been through a lot in her personal life but persevered. She has had a crush on John too, but his failure to make a move has made her think he does not feel the same. She is smart, funny, and understanding. But her own life is undergoing some changes and she has to make some decisions about her future. Are they destined to be friends or can they be something more? Will they be willing to take the risk or stay in their comfort zones? I really enjoyed this couple and their story. They have a witty rapport, obvious chemistry, and a shared support system. It was fun to check in with the other couples from the series and get another peek into their future. This novella can be read as a sweet and sexy, friends-to-lovers stand-alone, but it also ties up this whole series a bit more. So whether you enjoyed the original series or are just jumping into the reboot, you will enjoy this story and these characters.

I have never been disappointed and My Sinful Temptation, book 5 in the Sinful Men series, is another check on the author’s perfect winning streak. To rate a book 5 stars, I have to admire the heroine. Mindy Gamble is a veteran, smart, hardworking, understanding, and humble. I really loved her! Loved her patience and positive attitude and how she worked in security and bounced back after she was informed of an unexpected change. How she stayed fit and how she pined for John Winston, her friend and a local detective from the Los Vegas Police Department where they both lived. These two had so much in common recently working on a case together, and were truly the perfect match. I loved the slow burn of their romance and their sizzling chemistry, but watch out, because once he asked her out on that first date, it was pure steam ahead! I loved how she internalized the meaning of the date knowing their relationship was moving in a new direction, an intimate one they both desperately wanted. What I loved best was how she supported the demands of his career and understood him. She didn’t play games or make him feel guilty, and he also respected and admired her career and ambition. What makes this couple special is that they made their relationship a priority. They knew in order to be together, they had to communicate and make sacrifices, and that’s exactly what they did. Their mature and heartfelt commitment gave me goosebumps because it’s what I believe you need to make it for the long haul. There is no doubt that Lauren Blakely is a romantic at heart because her heroes always deserve the title. They have morals and values and just say and do the swooniest things, and most importantly, know how to take care of their girl during their sexy times! This is a standalone, but I enjoyed reading updates on characters from the interconnected previous books in this series. Loved the epilogue into the future as my mind always goes there when I finish a book. I need assurance that the couple I have fallen in love with get their HEA and have no doubt, Mindy and John do!

    This suspenseful family oriented series concludes with a wonderful bonus romance between John and Mindy who appeared throughout the series. I loved the tantalizing glimpse it provides into the happily ever afters for the previous couples which is a real treat. I wish it had been longer because it’s hard to say goodbye because I really enjoyed the narration performances of Scott Brick and Samantha Cook throughout the Sloan saga.

Audio: This was my first time listening to Scott Brick and Samantha Cook. I loved Scott's voice and I think he was the perfect John. Strong and sexy, but you could hear the rare humor in his voice when he let loose. Samantha was also great! I hope to hear more from them in the future!

It's a novella that rounds out the series by allowing us to see the sinfully sexy relationship blown between Detective John Winston and Mindy Gamble. Both of whom have been participating characters in all four previous stories and deserved their own deliciously sinful excapade, which Lauren Blakely surely delivered. Typically consumed by work and leaving little time for a social life, John has been the dutiful cop his whole career. But finding both a devoted friend and possibly more in Mindy has been a year-long pleasure that he may finally be ready to explore. But can he convince Mindy to take the leap as well? The two have been precariously riding the fence between friendship and lovers and she's secretly desired more as well. What happens when they throw caution to the wind becomes a truly inspiring story that I had a pleasure reading. While I did enjoy getting to see Mindy and John finally have a little fun outside of work, this wasn't my favourite of the five installments. That might actually be because I really enjoyed the crime and suspense aspect of the previous stories and this one was simply a romance. But the author does include updates about the previous characters in the series as they make cameos and participate in their own ways so that was essential in rounding out everything. Nevertheless, I did enjoy it and I do recommend the series in its entirety. I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Sweet serving of Temptation. This is the story of John Winston and Mindy Gamble. John is the detective that solved the Price-Paige murder, and Mindy is Brent’s best friend. They’ve been here from the beginning, but now it’s their turn to find a happy ever after. Both have been attracted to the other since they first met, but the murder mystery took precedence in John’s head, and the ended up just good friends instead. But, that attraction hadn’t faded.

John is the detective that solved the Price-Paige murder, and Mindy is Brent’s best friend. They’ve been here from the beginning, but now it’s their turn to find a happy ever after. Both have been attracted to the other since they first met, but the murder mystery took precedence in John’s head, and the ended up just good friends instead. But, that attraction hadn’t faded. Now, with the case closed and time to ponder, John starts seeing Mindy in the way he first did. As a woman, a sexual creature not just a friend. And Mindy, she’d pushed her feelings to the back of her mind, ignored but not forgotten. So, when John gets that gleam in his eye and his chats are more than flirty, she doesn’t hold back and soon they are in the place where they should’ve have been a year ago. And, boy, does Mr. stoic and in charge, have a hidden side. Mindy is more than happy to comply and play along. John is one hot between the sheets lover and he likes to be in control. It’s a sexy and seductive, just the way I like it. This was a wonderful addition to the other four ‘Sinful’ books by Lauren Blakely and truly worth reading if you’ve read the series. It can be read as a stand-alone as well as it doesn’t delve too much into the previous story.

Theirs is a grown-up friends-to-lovers story that will both make you smile and need to reach for the fan a time or two.

Mindy unexpectedly experiences some changes in her life and decides a change is in order. Will John and Mindy ever take that last step and give in to the obvious sexual tension between them? Or will they each assume they know what the other person is feeling or wants out of life? Lauren Blakely writes characters that are real with character, personality, and hearts-of-gold. Lauren is also an expert at creating/writing sexy times between the sheets with lots of heat. If you like stories with love of family, some suspense, sexual tension, and heat between the sheets then you will totally enjoy My Sinful Temptation along with the rest of Lauren’s Sinful Men Series!!

Set about a year after the previous book, this one shows us how the Sloan family is moving on while showcasing the budding romance between Brent’s best friend, Mindy, and Sophie’s brother, John.

Both of these characters are very familiar to anyone who has read the earlier books in this series, so this novella doesn’t have to take long to get us to the good stuff. Mindy is at a career crossroads, and her timing with moving from friends to more with John couldn’t be worse. She’s not even sure if her future lies in Las Vegas or if it’s time to move on. John is in between cases for a while, but he’s not sure how much he’ll be able to put into a meaningful relationship once he’s assigned to another all-consuming case. Watching these two navigate through these and other emotional roadblocks was pure poetry, with a huge helping of steam on the side, and I loved every last bit of it. Just when you think their HEA is everything, we’re treated to a blissfully satisfying epilogue that catches us up on all the characters from the entire five-book series. The tribute in store was beautifully heartwarming, and the solution to the main conflict of the story was truly a stroke of genius. I couldn’t have loved this more.

Now a year later, events happen and they can't deny the fiery chemistry any longer. But now that they found their way to each other, Mindy might be moving across country, dousing any hope for more. This is a fun, heartwarming, and sizzling romance. It was brought to life so beautifully by narrators, Samantha Cook, and Scott Brick. I enjoyed both their voices, and intonations and was completely lost to their captivation performance. I also loved catching up with all of the Sloane family as well. This sweet, moving and steamy, romance was the perfect cap to the Sinful Men series.

    What a beautiful ending to an amazing series. Although the original Sinful series was a 4-book series that increased the intensity with each book, I love that Lauren added a quick continuance that slowed the pace a bit, while adding more happy. I’ve been crushing on John since Ryan/Sophie’s story. What’s not to love? A hot, rich police detective who wants to keep everyone safe. Swoon! Mindy was a perfect match for him with their similar backgrounds in law enforcement and security. As great as Joh What a beautiful ending to an amazing series.

I’ve been crushing on John since Ryan/Sophie’s story. What’s not to love? A hot, rich police detective who wants to keep everyone safe. Swoon! Mindy was a perfect match for him with their similar backgrounds in law enforcement and security. As great as John was at his job, he was hopelessly slow in his eventual pursuit of Mindy. Mindy was tough, but a woman who liked the man to take charge. Both of them thinking their attraction to the other was one-sided. When the lightbulb finally goes off for them, it’s on! Their chemistry is off the charts, and I love friends who become lovers and get their HEA. You get a catch up with the Sloane’s, but this story is all John and Mindy. Scott Brick and Samantha Cook continue to do a wonderful job narrating, and I hope to hear more from both of them.

    “There was just something hot as sin about a woman who knew how to channel her frustration into the physical.” I absolutely love romances where the female is tough as nails and can keep up with the men and Mindy has been great from the very first book of the series when she was introduced as Brent’s best friend. Detective John Winston was in charge of the Paige murder which put him in close contact with all the Sloan’s and Mindy for the previous books. Watching the relationship between John and M “There was just something hot as sin about a woman who knew how to channel her frustration into the physical.” I absolutely love romances where the female is tough as nails and can keep up with the men and Mindy has been great from the very first book of the series when she was introduced as Brent’s best friend.

Watching the relationship between John and Mindy was a slow burn tease that looked like it could be more but always stalled at friendship so I am thrilled they finally got their own book to let the sparks really fly. Since we already knew the characters well, this short novella really just closed everything up nicely for the entire Sinful Men series and gave us the happy ending I was wanting for Mindy!

    ***ARC Provided by the Author*** This novella was not only a really fun chance to revisit all of the characters in the Sinful Men series, but also a chance for Mindy to get her well deserved happy ending and for John to get his as well. I enjoyed it. Mindy and John were fun, and they had enough history from the previous books that you were able to have a good idea who they were before the novella started, which is always nice as character development in a novella is tricky.

This really isn't a standalone. It's at the end of the 4 novels, it's a novella, and while it has enough of a story for you to follow Mindy and John, there's not enough in it for you to know who the other characters are...so, read all of the other books and then end with this satisfying flash into the future of all of the characters. I enjoyed and recommend this title.

    My Sinful Temptation is a novella in the Sinful Men Series. It tells the story of Detective John Winston and Mindy Gamble. We have seen these two characters throughout the series. It is a quick, steamy, fun, and sweet love story. John has always lusted after Mindy but it has always been platonic and professional until they finally give in to their desires. When they come together, sparks ignite! Even though this is a novella, it packs an emotional punch. I loved the characters.
