About NIGHT AFTER NIGHT:
**Warning: Spare panties are needed for reading this book…you’re welcome.***
“You are being rewarded for turning me on. But we’re doing it my way. You teased the hell out of me, and now I want to watch you squirm. Crawl up on my bed and get on your hands and knees.”
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…
Dawn’s Review for FIRST NIGHT & NIGHT AFTER NIGHT: 5 Stars
Note: I read First Night (a prequel novella) and Night after Night (book 1) back to back and am reviewing together. They are available together in the Night After Night novel.
Wow! These are the first books and series I’ve read by Lauren Blakely and I’m hooked! Clay and Julia are off the charts steamy together and my fingers were flying trying to turn the pages fast enough for my greedy eyes. I love Julia’s tough-as-nails exterior layered over the vulnerable side she tries to hide. And Clay, well, he is just about the sexiest lawyer I’ve known! His dirty mouth and dominant side melt the panties right off. (Prepare yourself with a cold drink nearby)
First Night introduces us to Julia and Clay. We learn that there is something weighing heavily upon Julia and that she’s hiding a lot from her friends and family. She’s smart, caring, and knows what she likes. When Clay walks into her bar, the sparks fly! What a crazy, intense night between them. Clay is an entertainment lawyer and has a body to sin with. In the space of a novella, Lauren Blakely was able to bring to life her characters in a way that left me wanting to continue their story.
Night after Night picks up right after First Night. Heads up to my cliffhanger-leery friends: be prepared, you’re going to want book 2, After this Night, immediately upon finishing NaN (release date: May 12, 2014). Lauren Blakely drew me in even further into Julia’s and Clay’s story – their backgrounds, their tender moments together, their fears, their desires, and their need for one another. I loved the sense of danger that is also present in the book. It’s not overdone. It adds just enough to the story to provide tension and a sense of imminent trouble. If I thought First Night was sensual, Night after Night is 10x that! I loved the playfulness and naughtiness between Clay and Julia and the give and take between them. But there are some issues that need to be resolved if they are to find their way to a happily ever after. I’m on the edge of my seat with a heart hurting, waiting to know what happens next!
Sexy, erotic, beautifully written story! This is a series I am so excited I picked up and I’m anxiously awaiting my next Clay and Julia fix!
