Publisher's Summary

Experience The Joy Delivered Duet narrated by Sebastian York! This is the first ever audio bundle of the two New York Times best-selling stand-alone novels Nights with Him and Forbidden Nights from number one NYT best-selling author Lauren Blakely.... 

Nights with Him...

An extremely eligible bachelor in New York, Jack Sullivan is the total package - handsome as hell, rich as sin, and charming as anything. But the powerful and successful sex toy CEO has commitment issues a mile long after the tragic way his relationship with his fiancée ended. He's looking for a way to erase the pain, and that arrives in the form of Michelle Milo. From her pencil skirts to her high heels, she's his perfect fantasy, especially since she doesn't have room for anything more in her life. 

When Jack proposes a deal - share her nights with him for 30 days of exquisite pleasure, then they walk away - his proposition sounds blissful. And it is full of bliss and ecstasy, until trouble from the past threatens their present arrangement....  

Forbidden Nights...

Sexy hotel CEO Nate Harper has lusted after his good friend Casey Sullivan for a long time, but 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....

What happens when years of desire and lust ignite a passion that can't be denied?

✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫

I love all things Lauren Blakely but I have to admit, I REALLY love her older hotter books!
I read these books years ago as part of the Seductive Nights series, but honestly this makes so much sense as a duet!

One Night with Her & Nights with Him:
In this book we meet Jack, he is the CEO of a sexy toy company, he is also very dominate and maybe a little bit broken. Michelle (Clay's friend from Seductive Nights) is a Therapist and she is also a little broken. Together these to fix each other. It is very sweet but crazy hot too. These two can't seem to go anywhere without having some sort of sex. Considering his company, you can only imagine the amount of sex toys used in this book lol. I really enjoyed their story and loved that it all came together in 1 book.

Forbidden Nights:
I loved this story, Nate was the perfect guy! He's Casey's closest friend but he wants one 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! They have an amazingly hot but still sweet love story.

Sebastian York was amazing as always in both of these books! He is and will probably always be my favorite narrator for romance. Something about that voice just ALWAYS works for me!

20 hours of Sebastian York narrating! Yes, please!

Lauren Blakely does it again!!!

Nights With Him:
Jack Sullivan. Sex incarnate on a stick is a pretty good description. CEO of Joy Delivered, a very successful sex toy company. When Milo meets Michelle Milo in a professional capacity, all he can think about are very unprofessional thoughts. Michelle is dealing with her own baggage, and her attraction to Milo is immediate. As they act on their mutual feelings of attraction, they're both forced to face their past before they can think of moving forward. This was an emotional story for both characters, but make no mistake, Lauren Blakely brings the heat along for this ride. I absolutely love Jack and Michelle, and I know you will, too!

Forbidden Nights:
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!

TWO PERFECT 5 ⭐️ ROMANCES

Well Lauren, ahem ‘joy’ was certainly delivered with these two romances over and over again.. you wonderful naughty temptress.. but that wasn’t the only joy you delivered. The characters were layered and loveable, the plots were perfect, the feels ebbed and flowed with precision and great timing, the chemistry sizzled, the passion oozed from every chapter, the tension tightened, the suspense gripped, the sex was hot and the love melted my heart. And you couldn’t have picked a better person to bring the dual POV love stories to life because we all love Sebastian York.

Worth a credit? Absolutely. There’s never any doubt in my mind when I ‘one click’ your audiobooks that it’ll well worth my credit.. and this was great to get two parts of the duet for one credit. Sigh.. if only other authors followed your lead.

An Incandescent Big Love

What a sinfully sexy duet! This one is sure to melt your earbuds and have you fanning yourself. Narrated superbly by the unicorn himself, Sebastian York, you will not regret spending a credit on this delicious duet! Here are my reviews for each individual book:

One Night with Her & Nights with Him
Overall 4.5 stars
Performance 5 stars
Story 4 stars

This was such a steamy listen! I'm more familiar with Lauren Blakely's more recent romcom titles and was not expecting this to be so incredibly erotic and sexy. Jack and Michelle's incredible chemistry was palpable. I loved their playful banter and sexy innuendo throughout the book. I was blushing quite a bit while listening to this one as Jack and Michelle explored each other and their sexuality. I appreciated how strong and honest Michelle was about her feelings and desires. She didn't play games and was direct and giving. The story flowed well and I enjoyed the secondary characters, especially Jack's sister, Casey. The epilogue (and bonus epilogue!) left me with a huge smile on my face and was the perfect way to bring Jack and Michelle's story full circle.

Sebastian York was absolutely smoking hot in this one! I didn't mind at all that the book was in the third person and that he voiced all the characters. They don't call him the unicorn for nothing! He was Jack through and through and his "enthusiasm" during the intimate scenes had me fanning myself. There are very few narrators who can pull off both male and female characters so wonderfully and York was perfect. I'm excited to listen to Nate and Casey's story next!

Forbidden Nights
Overall 4 stars
Performance 5 stars
Story 3.5-4 stars

I really enjoyed this best friend's little sister/friends with benefits romance. Nate and Casey's story was so sexy and I loved their magnetic chemistry. Casey was a fantastic heroine. She's a strong and confident businesswoman and even in her moments of vulnerability, she is mature enough to admit when she's wrong. I loved that she went after what she wanted and was direct and honest. I found Nate a little frustrating at times, but given his past history, it was understandable. He really showed his growth in the conflict at the end of the book and I appreciated that his initial reaction was realistic, but also mature. Catching up with Jack and Michelle was amazing too and having their wedding play a role in the story was awesome. Jack and Casey's relationship, as will as Davis and Michelle's, were 2 of my favorites in the book. The love between the siblings was so sweet and really tied all the stories together. One of my favorite things about Blakely's books, is how old favorites appear in her other books. These fun little connections and Easter eggs are such a treat for the listener/reader. The epilogue and bonus epilogue of Forbidden Nights were absolutely perfect and so uniquely Casey and Nate. I loved the collection of kisses.

Sebastian York stunned me again with his amazing performance. There's nothing quite like hearing the unicorn narrate an intimate scene. He is so passionate and animated that you might combust! Again, I didn't mind at all that the book was in the third person and that he voiced all the characters.

Worthy of a Credit? HECK YES

Hot that is what this book/books are. I loved it I am a fan of Lauren’s writing already but this, this was just amazing.

Jake and Michelle
Jake already has one thing going for him he is a CEO and not just of any company, of an Adult Toy Company so you know, you just know he has moves right but what I wasn’t expecting was the connection these two characters have for each other. It is sizzling.
You know books where your yelling just be adults? I am so happy to say this book they are 100% adult about everything that goes on between them. I loved this so much. It was a great Erotic Romance story, there are some great smoken’ hot sexy times but there was just an amazing storyline to go with it.

Casy and Nate
These two make the best couple they have heat and connection and it will steam up your audiobook in a big way.
I enjoyed that it wasn’t just about sexy times, it wasn’t just about dialog but it was both. It was friends who become so much more to each other. These are my favorite kinds of stories.
They have to find a way to navigate this new relationship so that it won’t fizzle out and so they don’t lose each other as friends. It’s interesting and intriguing and you won’t want to stop listening.

Narration: Well hello it was Sebastian York. I ALWAYS have fun listening when he is in my ears, no joke that voice, that growl he does, you know the one. La Sigh, Need I say more? ;)

Joy was definitely Delivered

Prepare for two scorching hot books combines into one fantastic eargasmic listen.

Nights With Him is Jack and Michelle's story and what a story it is. We have Jack Sullivan who is CEO of Joy Delivered, a sex toy company that provides pleasure to millions of women worldwide. Jack is New York's most eligible hot bachelor and the rag magazines follows him regularly. After his fiance' died in an accident Jack has been the grieving bachelor. It's hard to find someone who doesn't know him as that so when he meets a woman in a bar he is struck with her since she seems to be oblivious to who he is. Michelle Milo is a therapist and a good one but she rarely lets herself enjoy the pleasures of life unless you count the BOBs. When she sees Jack across the bar she is immediately aroused from his handsome looks and fine physical form. When they start a conversation she has no idea where that will lead her and how her future will change.

Next we have Forbidden Nights which is Jack's sister Cassie and his friend Nate's story. Cassie is a strong female that takes what she wants and rarely holds anything back. She has been unlucky with love even though love or pleasure is what she sells with Joy Delivered. Since her brother put her in charge as CEO of the company she has taken it to new heights but she is still struggling with her own love life. Nate Harper is CEO for the Lux hotel and resorts and he is living the bachelor life. After his ex wife ripped his heart out and stomped on his pride he refuses to fall back into that again. He is best friends with Casie so when she ask him to help her to let loose he is happy to help but in the process his true feelings come out.

This series is I'd say one of my all time favorites of Lauren Blakely's. I love everything she writes but this one is off the charts hot and sexy with great characters and storylines that pull you inside their lives. I loved this duet so much and I highly recommend it.

Now with all that said, because the two books together are so good it wouldn't matter who the narrator was, but OH MY GOODNESS to have Sabastian York be the one to tell their stories is off the charts hot. I was seriously in heaven. 5 stars doesn't even come close and to get two for one credit is an added bonus.

I loved everything about this book. Both stories are fantastic and the narration is off the charts good. I received a code to listen and review. I highly recommend it.

Worth a credit? 🤷‍♀️

The Joy Delivered Duet by Lauren Blakely is two books in one. Follow brother and sister, Jack and Casey Sullivan, as they each find their one true loves.

In the first, Nights With Him, Jack Sullivan seems to have it all. He is a former military man, the CEO of Joy Delivered a sex toy company he owns with his sister Casey, and he has been name the Most Eligible Bachelor for NYC. Jack is also haunted by the memory of his former fiancé. Can psychologist Michelle Milo help him forget and move on?

In Forbidden Nights, Casey Sullivan is a force to be reckoned with, not only in the board room, but also in the bedroom. She is a woman who knows what she wants, and isn’t afraid to ask for it. Casey’s last boyfriend told her that she was too much and that she should tone it down if she ever wants to find someone to marry. Then along comes, Nate Harper, Jack’s best friend. Nate has always admired Casey from afar. Lucky for him, she asks him to help her learn to be more submissive in the bedroom. Yeah, we know how that will turn out.😉

I think this duet is well worth a credit 👍🏻 and then some! 👍🏻👍🏻. The story flows really well and Sebastian York is spot on with the narration! He delivered lots of joy himself!! 😘

Joy is definitely delivered!!

Nights With Him~ What can I say....I absolutely LOVED this book! What’s not to like about Jack and Michelle? Both Jack and Michelle can give as good as they get. Jack is too hot to handle! As much as Michelle wants to protect her heart, she can't help but go for Jacks 30 day proposal of no holes barred sex. Jack finds himself forgetting about the guilt that eats at him when he's with Michelle. Will they walk away after 30 days, or will they let the past go and follow their hearts?

Be prepared to not pull out your earbuds. Get a cold glass of water ready and several changes of panties, because this dirty talking couple, in Sebastian’s oh so sexy voice, will set you on fire!!

Forbidden Nights~ This book is smoking hot!! Lauren Blakely never fails to deliver a smoking hot leading man, and Nate is no exception. Keep the fan handy because this book is a love story that is both sexy and erotic!
Super sexy hotel CEO Nate Harper doesn't believe in relationships, after his ex-wife hurt him in the past, so when his beautiful best friend Casey asks him to teach her how to let go of control in a sexual relationship and let the man take the lead, he couldn't say no.
Casey has been unlucky in the love department and believes her take control personality is why. Who better to teach her than the one man she trusts, her best friend. When they connect it is unlike anything either one of them have experienced before.
You have got to listen to Sebastian’s yummy voice and feel the passion that combines when Casey let's go and Nate opens his heart! Will their friendship survive? Listen and find out!
This is a five star must read!

4.5 Joy Delivered Stars!

I love that Lauren Blakely has combined these two stories in one Joy Delivered package!

NIGHTS WITH HIM
This story stars Jack, the sexy ex. soldier turned sex toy company CEO. He is NY's most eligible bachelor and darling of the media after his fiance dies a year earlier. We have Michelle Milo who we've met in previous books in the series getting her chance at love. She is a rock star therapist and is extremely talented in helping her clients navigate their relationships and lives. They become the focus of social media which is a problem for a therapist who requires discretion. It is hard for them to stay away from each other because they each awaken strong passion, desire and healing in the other. I fell in love with Jack and Michelle, and the development of both of their characters. I also loved how hot the chemistry is between them along with their dirty talking. Their love scenes and passion is off the charts! We get to see old friends and great new secondary characters along with some drama and mystery that keeps the story flowing. We are also treated to wonderful scenes in Paris that makes you feel like you are really there.

FORBIDDEN NIGHTS
This is Jack's sister, Casey Sullivan, and his best friend, Nate Harper's forbidden romance. They have been intensely attracted to each other for years but haven't acted on it. They both have been burned by love before and don't trust their judgement to find love again. But Casey has hope but has lost her confidence in the bedroom. She asks Nate for lesson's in seduction to use on another. When he agrees, they never expected that their friendship could be the foundation for such passionate and explosive chemistry. But what could go wrong when the end nears and they have to go back to being just friends?

Sebastian York is the perfect choice to bring these dirty talking alpha males and the strong and successful women who love them to life! His comedic timing was spot on, and he easily brings out the range of emotions that these characters go through, making us feel them as well. I love listening to his smooth, expressive voice and getting lost in his storytelling, making these fabulous Blakely romances even better.

Awesome Book! Awesome Listen!

Lauren Blakely is so talented! The Joy Delivered Duet definitely delivered joy with Sebastian York. He is the perfect voice for these two stories. I loved how each book was a standalone listen and tied together with characters. I found myself smiling and laughing out loud while listening. The imagery is so well done in both stories. I love listening to Lauren's books and Sebastian's performance. He is perfect bringing the characters to life.

Lovely duo

It took different turns than expected, but both books left me wanting more, even though I have a clear picture of how the story continues.
And as a benefit, the narrator has such a wonderful voice, he does the books justice.
