**Warning: Spare panties are needed…you’re welcome.*** “You are being rewarded for turning me on. But we’re doing it my way. You teased the f&*k 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?
Night after Night. Sooo glad I read this. I popped my cherry with Lauren Blakely and Night after Night was the BEST first book to pick. I know what I like and what this book gave me was just what I needed. A great story, HOLY Insanely hot sex..like it never ever stopped….and angst…and lust…Yeah you get it all with this one…And it all starts with Clay Nichols.
Clay Nichols is everything you could want in a man. He’s absolutely gorgeous, smart and a very successful Entertainment lawyer. Julia is a bar owner/bartender. She’s very independent and has a smart mouth! So when Clay visits her club and they hit it off…its ON!!! OH its on!
Julia has enough in her life going on…her ex-boyfriend leaving behind his troubles and she needs to pick up the pieces and pretty much serve his penance. She’s tied to dangerous men and needs to repay his debt. She’s into some seedy shit. But she keeps it quiet and away from her family and friends; not wanting to get them involved and dragged into her bullshit. So a “no strings attached” relationship is just what she needs and Clay can hopefully deliver.
So when Clay and Julia wait until the club is closed down for the night, he shows her exactly what NO Strings means. I can honestly say, Clay wins the award for BEST Dirty Talker! The man is positively indecent. He’s not gentle. (Fine by me!) What’s so refreshing about these two, especially Julia, is that she’s not afraid to talk back. She’s just as kinky as Clay! I absolutely LOVE Julia’s character.
“Now, Clay. Tell me. How do you like it?”
“Deep,” he growled. “Take me deep.”
“You want to fuck my mouth, you’re saying?”
“I would love to fuck that pretty mouth of yours.”
HOLLA!!! That’s what I’m talking about Lauren!! See, this chick gets me!! UMM!! Thank you lord for introducing me to Lauren Blakely. OH, excuse me, we are writing a review…Okay…Back to basics!!
Yes, Clay and Julia. Okay so they fuck like animals!! Good!! But is that ALL they have together; just a physical bond? Hells no!!! The dialog in this book never ends!! And I LOVE dialog! Makes the whole damn book!! And these two are freaking awesome together.
“You like that?”
“I need you to spread your legs then, Julia. I can’t go down on you the way I want until your legs are wide open.”
So…Clay and Julia live on opposite sides of the country. Clay in NYC and Julia in San Fran. Clay definitely wants to see Julia again. Even though Julia is reluctant she agrees. Because truth be told, she really does enjoy his company and is seriously hot for him. May even be more than that. They both share this feeling. Truthfully, this insta-connection is soo believable because Lauren does such a great job with dialog! I totally felt their bond, and the need to see one another.
So they spend one amazing weekend together in NYC. And for me, its where I fell in love with Clay; his dirty mouth is oh so down right kinky. My goodness….I haven’t met a man like this in a book in a long time. What he does to her body should be illegal. There is chapter after chapter of amazing Schmexy-ness. I was seriously spent just from reading it all!! YEP!!! But there is so much more to Clay then dirty talk though. He is deep, and has feelings. And has been burned before. And he expresses all of this to Julia. Explaining how he HATES lies and liars. But Julia, is holding onto some stuff, she just can’t share with Clay. She’s been hurt and burned as well. BAD!! and pays the price every day.
This drives a serious wedge between the two. And Clay is questioning it all….
“Can you give me a reason why? Because every instinct inside of me is telling me to walk away and not look back.”
And now I am left…speechless….hurt…wondering….wondering….
WHERE IS AFTER THIS NIGHT??? IT CAN’T COME SOON ENOUGH….
Ladies, this book has it all. But most importantly it has the Schmexy. And us Schmexy girls can’t do without that! So glad Lauren popped my Cherry with Clay and Julia….Stay tuned for MORE of their story in After This Night!! HOLLA!!
