Their world was passion, pleasure and secrets.

Far too many secrets. But Clay Nichols can't get Julia Bell out of his mind. He's so drawn to her, and to the nights they shared, that he can't focus on work or business. Only her. And she's pissing him off with her hot and cold act. She has her reasons though–she's trying to stay one step ahead of the trouble that's been chasi

THEIR world was passion,
pleasure and secrets

It could be so easy....just when CLAY & JULIA have decided to give this "thing" between them a shot, JULIA's secret threatens to destroy everything.

Can CLAY live with the fact that Julia lied to him?
Can JULIA convince Clay she only did it to protect him?

After This Night was just as HAWT as Night After Night.
Although I absolutely love CLAY's dirty mouth, seeing his softer side made me fall in love with him even more...**sigh**

Great third installment of the Seductive Nights Trilogy! I wasn't quite sure if this was gonna be angsty and lose the erotic edge that the author started. I mean how can the erotica continue when Clay walked away?

Oh silly me...Julia wanted her man too much to just let him go...and Clay was never able to forget his fiery red! So phone heat? yes. Dirty texts and emails? yes. surprise melt your panties show ups? yes. And so you see the erotica was back an

OMFG! Essa série é perfeita -fato!

Admitidamente sou uma pessoa muito crítica e sempre acho (ou procuro) defeitos nas coisas, mas não há o que se falar de Seductive Nights, tudo nessa série me agradou! Tô muito feliz por ter lido (consumido) os livros.

A continuação da história do Clay e da Júlia tem a mesma qualidade dos dois livros anteriores, só que a autora foi além, porque está mais romântico (ou talvez eu tenha atingido um nível mais alto de admiração pelos personagens ao longo da série), cu

“I want you to believe me with the same certainty that you want to fuck me.”

I started my previous reviews on this series gushing about Clay Nichols, now, I’m starting off with Julia Bell.

After keeping her problem all to herself in Night After Night, she decided to take a risk and trust Clay to listen and believe her. Not to help her pay off her debt but more on letting Clay know that she is onl

After this Night is another fabulous instalment in the Seductive Nights series by Lauren Blakely. I really enjoyed the prequel short story and the first book but I'll admit I was a little nervous that Julia would continue keeping secrets from Clay and end up causing unnecessary drama in this book. Luckily that isn't the case and although it takes her a little time to trust Clay she does end up opening up to him and letting him in on her big secret. Of course Clay, being the kind of man he is, wa ...more

Oh my gosh, Lauren made an explosive and fantastic trilogy come together with the BEST , AMAZING and PERFECT ending.

Don't read this review if you haven't read book 1, Night After Night.

“All or nothing at all. If it's love there is no in-between.”

Stubborn! Clay and Julia are exactly alike in the beginning of this continuation of the Seductive Nights Series. Trying to forget about each other; Clay because he thinks she is a liar. Julia because she doesn't want to involve him in her dealings with Charlie. They are both just going through the motions and trying not to contact one another. That only lasts for

After This Night begins just after Clay had left Julia to head back to New York, unable to accept her inability to let him in, to explain why she lied. But the distance isn't enough to erase the memory of her from his head. Already burned by a woman who lied to him, Clay struggles with trusting in a woman that has turned him inside out in just a matter of a few nights.

Julia doesn't want to drag anyone into the mess that has become her life. Keeping everyone in the dark is the only wa

I've already thanked Lauren Blakely for Clay&Julia. They have easily climbed the favorite couples list. I love their fights, and their determination, but most of all, I love the chemistry between the two characters. You'd think that the way these two go at it things between them wouldn't work. Oh No. It's the fact that they both can dominate each other in a sense that makes their time together so powerful. Clay has taught Julia to finally Let Go and let me just say: Boy d

Clay and Julia are one of my favorite book couples – EVER. I want to be couple besties with them. I want to hang out with Julia and have her make me a Purple Snow Globe. It’s not fair that these two only exist on paper. I may be pouting a bit. Okay fine, I’m pouting A LOT. Lauren Blakely has made me a believer in these two. The Seductive Nights series is at the tippy top of my all-time favorites and I don’t want their story to end.

"After this Night" was yet another brilliant part to this erotic series. Julia and Clay were apart and missing the hell out of one another. However, each of them had some soul searching to do and all I kept wondering was, could this couple be together with Julie's secret hanging over their heads?

The Seductive Nights series by Lauren Blakely is a TOP-NOTCH erotic romance series that will have you begging for more.

The story picks up right where Night After Night left us hanging. A misunderstanding sent Clay running back to New York; back to his life without the woman he has fallen for. The woman he hopped on a plane and flew clear across the country to surprise because he missed her and wanted her in his life. The woman who holds the key to his heart and his happiness, but has secrets that keep him on the outside looking in.

Julia is so stubborn and determined to escape the chains that have encroached on

From what I understand, After This Night is he 3rd book in a series. The much-anticipated conclusion to Clay and Julia’s story. I have not read the first two books in this series, however that did not dampen my enjoyment in reading After This Night in the least. It reads perfect as a stand-alone novel.

These two have quickly become my new obsession, the character development across the series is brilliant. I just can't help getting into the minds of Clay and Julia.
It's like a television programme that I tune into each night, I pick up the book and watch it all unfold.
I must also give a special mention to the long distance relationship emails. They most definitely know how to communicate!

This begins right where Night After Night left off. Clay and Julia are apart because she is trying to protect him and he can't deal with secrets. So even though they are both emotionally invested and have wicked hot chemistry, they are in a stand off.

Julia is in a big financial mess that threatens her safety. She feels alone and burdened, but she isolates herself to keep it from touching those she cares about like her sister McKenna and the man she wants, Clay.

Lauren Blakely is one of my go-to romance authors. She writes such likeable characters, creates fun and engaging storylines, and really knows how to bring the steam with her romance scenes. One of my absolute favorite things about Lauren's books is that they are all connected. Her books can be read as stand-alones, but those of us who have read Lauren's other books/series will recognize certain strangers and places in her books and I really loved that about this one especially.

Lauren Blakely. Will you just come to my house and write me stories about Clay all day long please????

When we leave Julia and Clay in Night After Night- they are hot and heavy but Julia can't unburden her secrets to Clay and he just can't take the lies.

When we see them again here, they just can't stay away from each other and I LOVE IT. Their passion is so hot, I feel like I am right there with them. When they orgasm, I go right there with them. Seriously- get the vibes out pe

Lauren Blakely continues to write well-crafted books that not only keep you completely captivated but encourage you to want more. More of a storyline that is smoking hot off the charts sexy yet at the same time is touching, funny and leaves you smiling broadly after you have read that last word.

I could not have asked for a better ending to Clay and Julia's story. I love them!

I think Clay and Julia are fantastic, well thought out characters, and I was immediately pulled back into their world. Their connection and chemistry was so much deeper on an emotional level, it made their passion and commitment for one another even more off the charts! It made for an incredible build throughout the story.

After This Night is the second book in the Seductive Nights series. It is necessary to have read the first book, Night After Night to enjoy this one. This will not work as a standalone novel.

I confess to being really mad at Clay at the end of After This Night. I do understand his reticence and his bad experience with his ex but his resolute refusal to trust Julia, a woman he has begun to fall in love with really irked me at the end of that book. He should have come over all protective and alpha
