Publisher's Summary

Secrets, lies, and tempting nights…

Never be surprised by what goes on behind your neighbors’ front door.

Clayton and Leilani live a picture-perfect life in a beachfront town. The hero cop and his wife have long been the dream couple, earning the affection of those around them, yet within their home is a couple who have lost their passion—a husband content in the life they’ve created and a wife longing for the thrill and heart-pounding nights of their earlier years. 

When new neighbors move onto their idyllic street, Leilani is intrigued when she learns of their secret life. Looking for a new way to connect with her husband, Leilani convinces Clayton to step out of his comfort zone and into a forbidden union—and a world of trouble.

Actions go too far, and suddenly, a husband’s innocence is on the line as he defends himself to the public he serves, but he will stop at nothing to safeguard the woman he loves. Her life is in danger and only he can protect her, because beyond the white picket fences and flowery façade, vows are forever, even when temptation is everywhere.

Come inside the world of Stolen Desire.

Tropes: erotic, romantic suspense 

Stolen Desire was a thrilling ride from start to finish. I rarely read blurbs anymore because I love the effect of going in blind so the events taking place really took me by surprise. This story had me so glued to the plot that I listened to it in one afternoon. The audiobook was narrated just right and had me fully immersed. 

Clayton and Leilani have been together since high school. He is a good cop and fully dedicated at that. When new neighbors move in, things get highlighted that need improvement in their marriage. Insecurities work in someone else's interests and they make their move when the timings right. Will Clay prove his innocence and make things right with his wife?

I'm highly recommending this one, especially if you love romantic suspense. This is my honest opinion, freely given.

Clay and Leilani!

Leilani and Clay fell in love when they were teenagers and they have been each other’s first for everything in their lives. She is a teacher, and he is a police officer, and they are happily married with the love they share stronger than ever. Their uneventful life is about to take a turn when their neighbors invite them into their world.

Leilani and Clay are trying to overcome some turmoil in their relationship when she disappears, and everyone believes he is the one responsible. He soon realizes that there is so much more going on than he expected, and he will need help from the most unlikely of places if he is going to find Leilani before it is too late.

The chemistry between them is intense, the intrigue part of the story will keep you on edge but the love between them was never in question. I thought that the narrators were a great fit for the characters as well as the emotion and suspense of the story.

Stolen Desire

SD by L. Runow is a mystery romance that had me right from the start.The book is narrated by Blake Lockheart and Lia Holland, a good fit.
Leilani and Clay are married and caught up in everyday life trott. That's about to change when new neighbors move in next door. There's a lot of spice in the air.
But Clay isn't interested in anything neighborly. He rather helps his friend building something or other and doing his job - that's enough for the cop. But Leilani needs more. And then in the blink of an eye everything changes when she vanishes.
A read tat had me on the edge of my seat. A suspenseful stand-alone, well written, easy to connect with.

whoooo.... twisted erotic romantic suspense!

When Leilani and Clay got new neighbors, they never realized what experiences that would lead to.

This erotic, romantic suspense is twisted... and HOT!

The characters are so good...all of them! I liked the good mix of characters and behaviors. Author Lauren Runow added a bit of a few different tropes in this and the blend was perfect!

I really loved the "OMG!" moment!

Loved this and would definitely recommend it! NSFW!!!

Blake Lockheart And Lia Holland did a wonderful narration!

Excellent

Stolen Desire by Lauren Runow is an erotic suspense romance that will keep you on your toes for 7 hours and 17 minutes.

I think many couples can relate to Clay and Leilani. Being (happily) married for years had made things in the bedroom bland or non-existent.
My heart broke for Clay, he was such a good man who loved his wife and only wanted to protect her.
The steam was excellent, well-written, and descriptive but not what I expected. The blurb says, "Looking for a new way to connect with her husband, Leilani convinces Clayton to step out of his comfort zone and into a forbidden union—and a world of trouble." This doesn't automatically mean they will invite other people into the bedroom, which I assumed when reading this.

Lauren Runow has a very realistic writing style which I like. How she moved the story, the first part of the story is very steamy, and the second part held lots of suspense, was effortlessly done, and made sense.
I loved the side characters, especially Brad, and the formed friendships. It shows that someone's preferences say nothing about a person's heart.

Blake Lockheart and Lia Holland narrated the audiobook.
Both voices were new to me, but I liked listening to them.
At first, Lia Holland sounded a little robotic in the beginning, but it felt like she soon eased into her role, and I enjoyed her parts.
Lia Holland and Blake Lockheart gave Runow's realistic writing style life. Their performances gave the characters a voice and made the story real.

I enjoyed listening to Stolen Desires. It's a story filled with tension, mystery, emotions, steam, and twists and turns I didn't see coming. This, together with an excellent narration, made this a 5-star listen!
