A smoldering and sensual stand-alone romance novel in the New York Times and USA TODAY best-selling Seductive Nights Series by Lauren Blakely....
Sinfully sexy hotel CEO Nate Harper knows exactly how to please a woman. He's equally skilled in keeping his heart safe from the kind of hurt his ex inflicted on him years ago. But one thing he's not so good at whatsoever is getting his mind and all his dirty thoughts off the gorgeous, outgoing, and absolutely captivating Casey Sullivan, the new head of the Joy Delivered company.
They've been friends for years now, and Casey trusts Nate completely. So it makes perfect sense to her to ask him for hands-on guidance when she finds herself in need of some of his romantic expertise.
The trouble is, his heart may be signing up for more than it bargained for when he agrees to help her learn to abandon her need for control in the bedroom. Because as she experiences what it means to let go, he'll start to experience what it means to feel again....
But what happens when all those forbidden nights turn into a deeper connection that's much more than either bargained for?

I loved Casey and Nate's story ! Simple concept but done well .. best friends, pine for each other, try to be lovers as a favour, realise said favour is what they both really want ! except things aren't quite that easy 😉things never are 😂😂
Enjoyed storyline. narrator made the story, the couple were good at showing friends can become lovers and make it
This was a lovely romance to read. It was great to see the plot unfold from both male and female perspectives. I found both lead male and female characters likeable and their friendship drew me in. I would recommend this book to any romantics out there who are looking for a simple read with a happy ever after ending.
I love friends to lovers and I love dual POV, that along with the wonderful writing and sizzling characters means that this book is pretty much perfect for me. Thoroughly enjoyed this book, really loved the characters, I couldn't get enough of them. Lighthearted, easy romance with a HEA. Highly recommend
Yes I loved both the characters in this book
Only the others in this series
I love his voice he has one of the sexiest voices I've ever heard
Yes when Nate faced the past that was holding him back
Loved it can't wait for more
What is there not to like about Casey and Nate? Lauren has done it again with creating two very realistic characters who take a journey of discovery. Casey is smart, sexy and aggressive and Nate loves everything about her. This story reminded me that being a strong woman does not intimidate a man who is equally strong and can appreciate a woman for who she is. Being in a similar situation, their love story gives me hope. Although it is fiction, the basis has a twinge of reality. Now if I can have the unadulterated fun they explored together lol.
Another great narration from Sebastian York. There is one scene that I played several times...Just listen for him calling Casey's name. THAT WAS MASTERFUL!
"Perfect combo of steamy words & sexy narration!!"
A great continuation of the Seductive Nights series. This audio has TONS of steamy scenes that will leave you hot and bothered for sure. Nate and Casey's story of friends turned lovers starts with a delightful twist and keeps you wanting more and more of them both. You also catch up with other characters from the series which is always great in an ensemble series like this.
Sebastian York #kingofauralsex does a stellar job, as always. His gravelly deep voice is fantastic and blended with Lauren Blakely's erotic story, it's a perfect combination. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
"Just Love this Series!"
Another great book in this series! I loved this story, Nate was the perfect guy! He's Casey's closest friend but he wants a night with her. Casey is insecure about her likes and dislikes and that is why he is the perfect guy because he loves everything about her likes and dislikes! Their story is super hot, he's pretty dominate and still lets her control things once in awhile! Sebastian York was amazing as always!
"How to Become a Battered Bimbo"
This book is so incredibly insulting to women that I don't know where to start. It promotes the myths that (1) a woman should debase herself in order to attract male attention and (2) women secretly crave pain, punishment and degradation.
Casey, a strong, confident and intelligent woman, was somehow convinced by an insecure ex-boyfriend that she needed to become a doormat before she would be a suitable companion. So Casey turned to her long time friend Nate for help.
Rather than telling Casey that she was perfect as her sassy self, Nate decided to use her insecurity to manipulate her into having sex with him. It was sad and disturbing that he took advantage of her weakness when a real friend would have been supportive.
In a previous book, I loved Casey's spunky personality, so it was depressing to listen as she allowed a trusted friend to crush her spirit for totally selfish reasons. Nate proved to be a shallow, insecure asshole who would lie and deceive to get laid. So not a hero!
I can't imagine why this female author believes that women should settle for abuse & humiliation, rather than love, respect and adoration. This novel is not romantic, not erotic, and not entertaining, with no hope of a happy ending...
"predictable store. no surprise"
could have has more mystery or twists to the story. very predictable. not left wanting more.
"Is there a story?"
3hrs into the book, I'm still waiting for the story. I can watch porn if I just want sex scenes
"Lauren brings Nate/Casey into vivid audible color!"
Listening to Sebastian York for a few hours made it the most enjoyable! Lauren Blakely's story and Sebastian's voice is always a great combination. He can work the filthy dialogue like a violin...a dirty violin.
There's no comparison. There are several friends to lovers books, but Lauren makes hers quite special!
As always, Sebastian puts so much feeling into these stories. You don't just hear him reading; you feel him become the story. I'd listen to Sebastian reading the phone book. He's definitely my favorite narrator, and I've got tons of audiobooks w/his name on most of them.
I am in love w/Nate. I love stories of best friends finding love, and this is a great one. You get all the scorching hot sex Lauren is known for, and she's exceeded my expectations w/this one. There's also a great love story between two alphas. You will not be disappointed in this story at all. Brava, Lauren!
"Loved Nate and Casey's story"
Way on top of my fav list
Nate. He ozes sexiness. Love his devotion to Casey.
Nate's character combines with Sebatians voice is squirming in your seat hot.
Wow. I was waiting for this with great anticipation and it did not disappoint. This is another incredibly sexy story by Lauren Blakely. Nate and Casey have known each other for a while and are best friends. Casey is successful in business but not so in her relationships being told she is too dominate when it comes to the bedroom. Nate has had his own share of doubts when it comes to relationships, having been burned by a devastating experience in his past. Feeling lost Casey turns to Nate to teach her how to be more submissive not knowing that Nate that has been attracted to her for quite some time. Their game of teacher and student fast turns into more than either of them expected. Will this friendship turned into romance survive and will Nate be able to let go of his past and learn to love again? The chemistry between Nate and Casey is devastatingly hot, one can feel the sexual tension, the desire they have for each other. Lauren's previous books have been steamy and sexy but this one I believe is by far the hottest, steamiest and sexiest and Nate is by far the hottest of all of her male characters. You will not be disappointed. A definite recommend. Sebastian York
"Please send Nate or Sebastian to me..."
One of my favorite audiobooks... loved the story. Even at my age would love Nate to give me lessons. Love all the characters in this "Beautiful" series. Highly recommend.
"WOW & YUM"
