Their world was sex, love, and lies.
He intoxicated her. Commanded. Consumed.
With a dirty mind and a mouth to match, Clay Nichols is everything Julia never knew she wanted and exactly what she cannot have. He walked into her life one night and unlocked pleasure in her that she never knew was possible. Possessing her body, captivating her every thought. Which makes him way too dangerous for Julia to risk her heart, given that she has a price tag on her head. She ran after one mind-blowing week with him, but now he’s back, and determined to make her his own.
No matter the cost.
She was a sexy drug to him. Fiery, unforgettable, and never enough, Julia is an enigma, and Clay isn’t willing to let her go without a fight. But she’s got dark secrets of her own that threaten to destroy any chance of happiness. She’s a wanted woman – the stakes are high, her every move is watched, and yet the lure between them can’t be denied. Can two people burned by love trust again when desire and passion are met by danger at every turn?
A sensual, emotionally-charged erotic romance from the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…
Please note: This book is intended for 18+ due to dirty talk, light bondage, and lots of sexy scenes. This ebook edition also includes the prequel novella First Night, which precedes Night After Night. The sequel, After This Night, releases May 12.
Scorching hot romance at its best! I couldn’t put it down. Julia is part owner in a bar downtown and she can’t seem to catch a break. She hasn’t met anyone, in what feels like forever, that can take her mind off of her troubles and in walks Clay, the hottest man she has ever met. Julia has two immediate needs and those two things are eight inches and a brain. She says every prayer that she knows that Clay has what she needs. I loved Julia and Clay’s fun banter and verbal for-play. Clay exceeds all of Julia’s needs by far and they heat up the pages, but struggle with secrets, their past and trust. There is a cliffhanger ending that leaves you wanting more, but After This Night, the conclusion, will be out in May so it’s not the kind of ending that will frustrate the reader with a long wait. I highly recommend this series and this book for readers looking for an emotional and steamy romance story. I loved it!
Note: Lauren Blakely included the prequel, First Night, in this ebook and I recommend reading it. It’s a great short story that sets the mood for Night After Night.
*Review copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Lauren Blakely is an unabashed fan of clever jokes, toast, and good guys in novels. Like the heroine in TROPHY HUSBAND, she thinks life should be filled with hot men, cool clothes, and the kind of love that love songs promise. Lauren lives in California with her husband and children, and spends her days writing both true stories and make-believe ones.
She holds the cards, but he doesn’t want to play her games…
Clay Nichols can’t get Julia Bell out of his mind. He’s so drawn to her, and to the nights they shared, that he can’t focus on work or business, only her. And she’s pissing him off with her hot and cold act. She has her reasons though – she’s trying to stay one step ahead of the trouble that’s been chasing her for months now, thanks to the criminal world her ex dragged her into. If only she can get out of the mess she’s in then maybe she can invite the man who ignites her back in her life, so she can have him – heart, mind and body.
He won’t take less than all of her, and the full truth too. When he runs into her again at her sister’s wedding, they have a second chance but she’ll have to let him all the way in. And they’ll learn just how much more there is to the intense sexual chemistry they share, and whether love can carry them well past the danger of her past and into a new future, after this night…
