Blog Tour and Giveaway ~~ Night After Night (Seductive Nights #1) by Lauren Blakely 

**Warning: Spare panties are'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 Bell 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 that is now a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling novel!

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


A new series by Lauren Blakely - count me in!

After a "kind of" set up, Clay and Julia finally meet, and sparks fly.  The sexual attraction is off. The. Charts!!

You know what I loved about Clay?  Yeah, he likes the kink for no other reason that he just does!  No childhood trauma.  No mummy issues.  Go Clay!

They both know what they want, and they go for it.  And they want each other, if only for the night. They have no hang ups about the one night thing, have a healthy regard for their sexual appetites and relationships.  They live on opposite sides of the country, but even that is not enough to keep them apart.

These two are perfect for each other, could be each other's forever.... or could they.  This is of course the part where their pasts come back full force to haunt their new relationship.

I feel for both of them about the things in their pasts that are still affecting them to this day.  As we learn more about it, my heart breaks for Clay while I feel anger for Julia.  

Julia is hiding something.  Secrets and lies are something that Clay cannot abide, are in instant deal breaker for him.  No ifs.  No buts.  No matter how interested he is in the woman.

Can their feelings for each other be enough to get them through and have the forever that we know they deserve?  Will it be the thing that separates them forever?

We have to wait because we got cliffhangered!!!
 But never fear, it is only a week before the sequel, After this Night is released (12th May)

I love and loathe the secondary characters in Night After Night.  I adore Julia's sister and her fianc`, and can understand why Julia does not tell her some of the things in her life.  I loathe, loath, loathe Charlie and his cronies, and pretty much hate Clay's ex.

I felt so many emotions while reading.  I loved, I laughed. I felt angry, I felt disappointed.  But mostly I felt hopeful.  Hope for Julia and Clay.

I have every faith the Ms Blakely will do Julia and Clay's story justice, and I hope they do get the HEA they deserve!!
