Your presence is requested for another installment in the tale of Julia and Clay, two red-hot lovers. Come inside their world of passion and suspense once more for a deliciously erotic and heart-poundingly dangerous story of pearls, handcuffs, thieves, mobsters, poker and pleasure in the city of sin…
Happy endings don’t come easily. They’re hard-won and Clay Nichols is going to have to keep earning his…
Now living together in New York with her debt safely paid off, sexy bartender Julia Bell and hot-as-hell entertainment lawyer Clay thought their future was clear sailing.
But life doesn’t work that way and the fiery lovers run into a slew of new challenges as Clay tries to put a ring on it. Trouble looms in every corner–trouble from clients, trouble with timing, and, most of all, trouble from her past returns on their trip to Vegas. A dangerous man who knows much more about Julia than he should surfaces in Sin City where they’re supposed to be enjoying a weekend getaway. Following her in the casino, watching her every move at the pool, targeting her as she plays poker.
Too bad Clay is called away repeatedly, leaving Julia alone in a sprawling hotel full of dark corners, back rooms, and unsavory characters. Can Clay save her from danger one more time, and then finally get down on one knee? Or will he be too late for the woman he adores?
Here we are again….Another amazing book with our favorite couple Clay and Julie. They are one smoking hot couple aren’t they??? Hells yeah!! The last two books were amazeballs, and One More Night is nothing less than smoking HOT as well!! Once again, Lauren Blakely takes us away to Las Vegas on another adventure of love, sex, gambling, mystery and angst. That’s what I love about this series, you get so much more than you bargained for.
Clay is dying to put a ring on Julia’s finger. And why not take her away to Vegas to where their love first ignited and spend a hot weekend making love, gambling and having fun. Although that’s what Clay plans, that’s not exactly how it plays out. Julia has enemies. I swear, for one HOT, fiery redhead, she is one powerful woman.
Of course this book starts off with nothing less than amazing sexual chemistry, amongst other things. I think what we love most about Clay and Julia is their love for each other; their need; AND that sexual connection that is out of hand.
Clay is always thinking of fresh ideas to keep his woman happy in the bedroom…or on a plane. Yes, on a plane. And these are some of my favorites moments from this book!! HOLY Mary Mother of God. You can do that with a string of Pearls? Apparently so.
OH….and it’s on…I was so fucking turned on, I was embarrassed reading this material at my desk.
“I can’t decide if I want you to wear these while I fuck you or if I want to play with them while I’m fucking you,” he mused, as he fingered the pearls.
“How would you play with them?” she asked, and her voice sounded hot, wanton.
“Let’s find out,” he said, grasping her hips and lifting her off him. “Unzip my jeans, woman. I can’t fuck you with my clothes on.”
This is the Clay we all know and love ladies. Because that right there, was NOT even normal HOT!!!! There is so much insane sex in this book you need to read in a locked room, with your BOB handy. Yes I went there!
But, I have to say, I loved how Lauren switched it up in One More Night. Julia has some crazy man following her in Vegas during what’s supposed to be a wonderful trip for them.
And so much happens….My heart was in my mouth reading some of the crazy; the angst, the unknown danger that lies ahead for Julia. And Clay is so worried he can’t protect her. This is a new territory for Clay. Not being able to be there for her…because his job is pulling him in a million directions.
I love this new Clay that Lauren shows us. The thought of losing Julia; it’s devastating him. We are so used to the Clay that fucks hard and talks dirty. But this new soft and tender side, it laid me out!!
“I love that you know me. I love that you know my body, and my heart, and my mind.”
“I love knowing you, Julia,” he said, cupping her cheek and turning her face so he could look her in the eyes. “ I love that we’re not strangers. That we’re not uncertain. That we’re not on opposites coasts anymore.”
“That we’re together,” she added, flashing him a smile that wasn’t sexy or naughty or wicked. That was simply true, like all she felt for him.
“Always,” he added. “I want to be the man who loves you always.”
OH god…just kill me. These two are just falling more in love. I think this book is my favorite out of the three for this reason. I needed that side of Clay to come out. I needed it from Julia too.
There was one scene in particular that stands out for me. It actually made me cry; because Clay just made me fall in love with him all over again. I have never seen this side…The sex was so beautiful. No, it wasn’t sex, it was pure love. They both wear their hearts on their sleeves and expose themselves in such a way that’s carnal and naked. And the tears just started falling. I don’t think I have EVER cried reading a sex scene, ever!!!
And trust me, it’s not just Clay that has this vulnerable side; it’s Julia too. This book for me really came full circle for the two of them. I just LOVE how she wrapped it all up!!! It left me feeling warm in my heart, and smiling from ear to ear.
This goes down in my re-read shelf for sure. Once again, Lauren Blakely delivers a stellar 5 star performance with the Seductive Nights series!! HOLLA!
