Title: Night After Night (Seductive Nights, #1)
Author: Lauren Blakely
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: April 18 2014
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?
Night After Night is the first full length novel in Lauren Blakely’s erotic romance Seductive Nights series. The book actually contains the free prequel novella First Night which it is important to read before starting this one. As it is only book one of the series, Clay and Julia’s story concludes in After This Night which will be released in May and, fair warning, there’s a bit of a cliffie at the end of this one!
Well, Lauren Blakely significantly amps up the steam factor in this series – this is far more erotic than anything else I have read by her before. This is the story of bartender and poker player Julia and Clay, hot shot entertainment lawyer. They meet one night in the bar Julia works in and their attraction to one another is instant, incendiary and unrelenting. Both agree that all they want is one night of passion, no holds barred, no expectations, no commitment but neither of them banked on their attraction being so addictive and so they agree to try to carry on seeing one another.
This, of course, brings forward it’s own set of difficulties. Clay insists on openness and absolute honesty in his relationship after a bad experience with his ex and Julia has secrets that she’s not yet prepared to share with him. They may be trouble ahead…….
I did enjoy this one – it’s super-nova hot and really rather quirky. Clay is one gorgeous, dominant, filthy talking lawyer and he and Julia share some incredibly hot scenes. Both of them are very alpha Type A personalities and both take turns controlling and dominating during the sex scenes. Phew!! Verrrry hot! Their sharp wit and dirty mouths make this an entertaining read despite the darker storylines on Julia’s side. This is a girl with secrets and a dark past that doesn’t want to stay hidden. I swear I wanted to bitchslap Julia and yell at her to just come clean to Clay but the obstinate girl just won’t do it!
It’s a very quick read, didn’t take me more than an afternoon and a great erotic escape. It’s very interesting to watch the relationship move slowly from just the physical to something deeper and more emotional with all the complications that entails.
