***5 “Give Me More Clay Nichols Night after Night” Stars***

Holy Hotness **fans oneself** I need more Clay Nichols STAT!!! If First Night was a sample of Clay Nichols and Julia Bell, let me first forewarn you, Night after Night is SMOKING HOT!!! Call in the fire department, Ms. Blakely turned up the heat and passion in Night after Night. Seriously, this book must come with a warning...Clay Nichols will leave you begging for more. What's not

"I'm crazy about you, but right now I'm going to fuck you, like I hate you."

I was a little bit concerned, if Night after Night would be as good as First Night...well it's NOT as good, because IT'S EVEN BETTER!!!

JULIA never thought it would be that hard to forget CLAY. He's always on her mind. Is there a future for those two? They both just wanted to have some fun. But now it's slowy turning into something more..AND I'M LOVING IT!!!!!!!!

I won a personally signed paperback through First Reads from the author. Thanks go out to her!

My review may seem a little harsh....

There were some things I didn't like and just couldn't move past, which is why I rated it like it is. They are....

(1) Their relationship was too easy. It started out easy and continued easy. It wasn't love at first sight or insta-love, but it was close.

(2) There were a lot of things repeated throughout. The problems with the ex, their life (i.e. owing debt or whateve

★★★★4 - Talk Dirty To Me - Stars ★★★★

Julia Bell’s life doesn’t leave room for any kind of commitment. Not only is she super busy working as a bartender at the trendy bar that she co-owns but her complicated history with men pretty much destroyed any hopes and dreams of a happily ever after. One specific relationship left her with lingering trust issues and problems that she is still trying to resolve.

As a reader, I have a difficult time finding female main characters in books that I can relate t

ARC received on behalf of the author via NetGallery.

One night proved not to be enough for either Julia or Clay, leaving the comfort of her San Francisco apartment to get lost in the arms of the man that has captivated her, flying across the country to New York, for just another taste.


Julia’s past has burned her, badly enough that she’s put off the thought of any kind of future until the threat is gone. But one man has her second guessing herself. Has her making decisions that could end bad

I remember reading this book a long time ago adn I really liked it. The heroine has sass and knows how to enamour the hero. And he's totally smitten with her. They make a good match. It's a great story.

Wow! That was smoking hot!!!
Julia and Clay had chemistry in First Night, but now, after spending the weekend together, they have feelings for each other as well!!
I loved it and definetely want to read how their story continues!!!

Whereas the Novella is all about the sex...
Can I just say it is off the charts fucking hot sex at that!

This book gives us more of a story for Clay and Julia.

As the blurb states Their world was sex, love, and lies.

Julia is keeping one hellova a secret.
Clay's deal breaker? Yep you guessed it.. Lying!

The two start a journey into a long term relationship. Learning to let each other in, discovering they are compatible not just in bed (again more explosive scenes!) but also out of it.

Whoa ! Nice hot progression of this tale! Clay and Julia ' s little bar rendezvous has turned into a weekend of passion and sexy horizontal action!

This is a major dose of insta-lust...and the lust is good stuff so I'm not complaining. Of course the story is headed toward "one night" was never gonna be enough! both Clay and Julia seem to be finding everything they need in one another...too bad Julia is unable to let go of her tricky past. She can't be with Clay and keep her past from possibly hur

Ladies, just back up off my man. Clay can tie me up any day and anyway he wants!

Night After Night was the first book I've read by Lauren Blakely and I can only ask myself this question. "where the hell have I been??" Geez, her writing is scorching-hot!

Ladies, trust me you will want to be introduced to Clay Nichols. And okay, I guess I can share him. But his tie can only tie me up, I won't share that with any

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 wit

Man, I love Lauren Blakely books.. and how they are on the romance package. It makes me a very happy girl. Plus, the two MC's in Night After Night were definitely something to fall in love with as well. Clay and Julia were kind of made for each other - if you are into that sort of crap. They had amazing chemistry.. but they both were hurt from past relationships. So, you'd think.. they would've found a way to get over those with each other.. but yet, that didn't happen.

It came so close

This series is absolutely amazing!! Best series of 2014. I read through them all within 2 days, and rushed to buy the paperbacks. To say I love them, would be an understatement.

We start this off hot. Real hot. One encounter is all it takes for bartender and owner of Cubic Z, Julia Bell, to find exactly what she wants. What she needs. At least eight inches and a brain!

Clay Nichols, celebrity lawyer, walks into her bar, not expecting much. But gets everything he has been wanting. Julia has a beaut

3.5 stars, I would've given it the full 4 but the narrator could've been better. He didn't put a lot of emotion into it, especially during the smut scenes (of which there are several.) The story was alright, I would like more information about how Julia got into her situation, but maybe that will come next book. Clay is really intense and comes on really strong. The smut and slight BDSM was the best part and I'm looking forward to seeing more in book 2.

This book was excellent! I LOVED IT!

Clay and Julia are fantastic together and have off the charts chemistry. Clay is sexy, commanding and controlling and oh man he’s got a dirty talking mouth. He’s so full of passion, I couldn't get enough! Clay is definitely a new book boyfriend. Julia is a feisty, strong and independent woman and I loved her equally. I don't say that often because normally I always like the man better than the woman, but Julia is a fantastic character. I love the connection th

You know whats in store when you read conversations like that. And Clay and Julia get the award for being the best Dirty Talking, Dominating couple I have read for a while, both of them like to be in charge, yet they both also know when to let the other lead the way.

This was THE.BEST.EROTICA I have read in a while... I absolutely loved this couple. Clay and Julia have superb chemistry that had me grinning and smiling each time they were together. What I loved most about this story was the equal give and take... and the diversity of their intimacy. Sometimes it was kinky and playful, sometimes it was har

What a fantastic book!! =D

I really enjoy Lauren Blakely writing style and the way she creates those characters that we can so easily get attached.

First of all I love the plot that we get with the the little novella about a one night stand that ends becoming more for both of those characters.
Obviously this would mean nothing if we didn't get great characters which we do get with our main couple!

Julia is amazing character, we get the feeling that she's a strong woman and her "secret" is an underst

Night After Night is one of those stories that hooks you in and leaves you breathless wondering what is going to happen. To me this is effing brilliant I mean just brilliant. It took me a couple days to read it because of school and work but when I shut myself off and started reading oh I fell in love with Julia and Clay.

Julia and Clay have had that one night of passion and the craziest chemistry they have known but Julia knows it can only be for that one night. She knows what she has in her lif

Why, Oh Why, did I wait so long to listen to this series!! I am shaking myself right now.

Holy Hot Batman Clay is one heck of a dirty talker, if you read my reviews you know, YOU KNOW, this is my weakness I can’t get enough of a dirty talking man.

Well, that didn’t work out well did it. As soon as they have each other they only want more. The chemistry between these two are off the charts, and after the FIRST NIGHT, they both want to throw out their own rule books!

Oof. It's safe to say that my tastes have drastically changed since I first read this.

This is badly written erotica with the most awful "dirty talk" I've ever had the displeasure of reading. Not only does the story start with a sex scene, but there are six sex scenes within the first 113 pages. Six. On top of that, what little plot has occurred so far has been OTT and incredibly far-fetched. And maybe I could get past all tha

Hmmm, interesting but loooooong (Night After Night is continued in After this Night, so that makes it a little drawn out.)

I actually did read the book. I just really like this gif!

This review is for this book and After This Night.

Series: Certainly is.

Sexy times: More than enough. More than more, if you know what I mean. In fact, you might end up skipping some of 'em because there are more.

Plan on reading more by the author: I'd like to finish the series but don't know that I will buy another.
