4.5 Do You Want It Hot??? Stars

Damnnnnn... this little novella was steamin', fantasy hot!
This is the intro to these two characters...for a future book. They meet and what happens is just one of those perfect bubble moments... chemistry abounds and what was supposed to be a one perfect night of sensual delight ends up to be much more complicated...

This is for fans of Lauren Blakely and her Seductive series. She has a way with situations and people who thrive in them.... their hearts pulse and make the big O's happen frequently. They also are challenged emotionally.

Take a moment... let the windows get a little foggy from a steamy read and get prepared for the future book.

In Seductive Night fashion, Lauren Blakely brings us the start of Michelle & Jack's story with a novella. Now for those that might not remember Michelle... she was the therapist who was sisters with Clay's best friend and the girl that was hopelessly in love with Clay. I admit, I wasn't sure if I was over my grudge with her quite yet.

Jack Sullivan is the sex-toy mogul who still has a broken heart after losing his wife. It was just supposed to be a business dinner, a deal would be struck and Jack would go home, alone. But that all changed when he saw her.

Michelle decided on a night cap after her presentation, reminiscent of drinks with Clay. But Clay is the last thing on her mind when she spots the attractive man at the bar.

One night, two strangers in a hotel built for sex.

Holy-hotness-batman. The chemistry between these two was off the charts. Lauren teases us relentlessly as these two flirt at the bar, I nearly broke out in a sweat as these two bantered back and forth. But that kiss. I nearly expected these two to rip each other's close off right there in the bar, hell, I think I needed them to.

Although I love Clay, I have a feeling Jack is going to be topping this series big time. I expected to enjoy this. I did not expect the heat that this brought. I think this may be the sexiest scene out of this entire series. And I say scene, meaning from the first question in the bar until the door to the hotel room closes later that night. It was all about the build up and teasing. Spot fucking on.

I can't wait for their full story, especially with how this one ended!

Holy hell this was awesome! Entertaining and hot. Stomach clenching, butterflies HOT! Wow!

Not even going to lie, I am instantly in love with Jack. Hot and flirty and commanding. I cannot wait to find out more about him. And Michelle, I have always liked her but in this introduction of the two together, she seems so much more than I realized and I love the strong, confident woman she is. She also has a naughty side to her that was awesome to see. The two together were so great, oh my with the innuendo! I just loved that back and forth banter and playfulness. Excellent first meeting, loved it all. A note about the heat: Lauren Blakely can do no wrong when it comes to the sexy because damn, just wow. Straight from my notes – “Holy hell. Holy hell. Holy hot! Damn! Whew! Jack is just yum!”

Fantastic introduction to Michelle and Jack’s story. I cannot wait for Nights With Him. 5 scorching hot stars!

Sizzle bajizzle!

It has been some time since I've read a book from this series. I honestly have been sidetracked by the bijillion other books in my TBR pile that had been calling my name.

Anyway, this was an awesome short read. I won't complain about the length since I know a full-length novel is up ahead in the series. What a hot, hot, hot read with attraction and chemistry that leaped off my ebook reader. Didn't Michelle say something about smoldering? Yep, that's the word! Ahhh, quick! Save my ovaries from Jack's hotness! Or not.

Read more reviews at A Lust for Reading. I received an ARC in exchange for my review.

The Seductive Nights Series is my favorite series by Lauren Blakely and I have been anxious for it to continue. Michelle and Jack's journey kicks off with this intro novella, One Night with Her. I have come to absolutely love Lauren's brief introduction stories. They set up the full novel perfectly with just enough about each character to get you interested and a small taste of steam to have you panting for more.

Michelle Milo is a psychiatrist in New York City who specializes in relationships and intimacy. Ironically, she spent the last 10 years of her life in love with a man who only ever saw her as a friend. Now that he is happily married, she is struggling to move on and forget about him. Jack Sullivan runs a successful sex toy company and is one of New York's most eligible bachelors. Though he sells sex for a living, his own sex life is non-existent. Fed up with his "intimacy issues," his sister is pushing him to move one. He just hasn't cared much about it until he spots the sexy woman in the hotel bar.

Michelle and Jack share some flirty, sexy banter and a few cocktails at the bar as the pull between them continues to grow stronger. They are both on the same page for one hot night with a stranger. As their night comes to an end, they start to make plans for another, until a revelation derails that train. It looks like one night might be all they get.

I have to say that based on the glimpse we got of Michelle during Clay and Julia's story, I am not a big fan. But I've been looking forward to this and her chance to redeem herself in my eyes. So far she is off to a good start. What I've read of Jack so far is simply mouth watering and I NEED more! The jury is still out on how he will rate next to Clay, my favorite Blakely boy, but I have a feeling Jack will give him a good run for his money.

Sweet Baby Elephants Send me a Toy now Jack......

What an intro to Jack, or as I am going to call him, 'Oh, God Jack.' from now on, he had Michelle from the moment she laid eyes on him. He had me from the moment he was described and the lines came out of his dirty mouth. I have said it before I love Lauren's filthy mouth!!!

Michelle, who holds a candle for Clay from Nights after Night, needs to get over him by getting under someone else, well.... me thinks Jack may just help her do that.... She totally won me over with her strong, sexy confidence. I am totally loving her in this. (I wasn't her biggest fan before, I didn't want her going after Clay!!)

The banter between the characters was outrageously flirty, sexy and this is the perfect introduction to the book, obviously as this is a prequel novella, it does end with a bit of a cliffy, can't wait for the next.......

Geçen gene serideki tüm novellaları, tanıtım yazılarını okumadan okuyorum...

Buna da yeni bir Julie & Clay novellası zannederek başladım ama karakterleri farklı çıktı, buna rağmen okumaya devam ettim. Çünkü akıcı, eğlenceli... İlk kitapta aldığım tadın aynısı. Sonra bir anda bitti.



Buraya döndüğümde gördüm ki Nights with Him'in başından birkaç bölümmüş.
Döverim bu kadını!
Bugünkü derslerim biter bitmez döneceğim.

As far as I'm aware this is the first book or in this case novella I've read by this author and I'll admit I was surprised. I loved everything about this novella, the story, the characters and the sex not forgetting the foreplay which started the moment they met.
Jack is the full package, excuse the pun, he's tall, handsome, intelligent, successful, rich.... could he be the perfect man?
Michelle is his female equivalent, beautiful, intelligent, successful, witty.... together they are hot.

As a rule I avoid all very short free books for several reasons one of which is I hate the wait for the next one, another is I always feel it's a bit of a rip-off since you end up hooked a series which ultimately costs way more than if it had been released as just one book. I mention this because as I was flicking through and noticed this book I assumed it fit into the above category so I skipped by, it was only the next time that I noticed the two 5 star reviews that I looked more closely, it's a free novella which is to be followed by a full length book of 350 pages for £2.49.
It's not often I give such a short book 5 stars but since I couldn't find anything I didn't like it seems mean to give less.
I'm now left waiting for the 11th November and the release of 'Nights with Him' I think I might have to check out the 'Seductive Nights' books while I'm waiting.

Jack Sullivan is smart, sexy and runs a sex toy empire. The man knows his pleasure makers and the power they possess to stimulate Os. Can I get an AMEN! But factor in his oh so delicious dirty talking mouth and you just may have the perfect man. While Jack spends his days tending to the gratification needs of sensual people everywhere, he spends his nights alone.

Michelle Milo has met her match and Jack Sullivan may be just what she needed to finally move on from her unrequited love. While she spends her days analyzing and tending to the love lives of others, she spends her nights alone.

A chance encounter yields a memorable night of pleasure that leaves them both sated and yet starving for more. It’s the more that suddenly gets complicated when their paths cross unexpectedly the following day.

This story was a short and fast read but certainly not lacking in its ability to arouse and make you anxious for more. I am excited for more of Jack and Michelle’s story in Nights With Him, due out November 11th.

Turn on your AC's ladies. Lauren Blakely's One Night With Her is a super scorching read that will leave you panting. This is a prequel to Nights with Him which will be releasing November 11th and while short, certainly whetted my appetite for more. Jake and Michelle meet at a bar where sparks instantly fly, both agreeing on one night of pleasure and end up wanting more. But their two worlds are about to collide in more than just the bedroom. This is another gem by Lauren Blakely and not to be missed.

When this popped up in my email I couldn't wait to dive in for another round of sexy, hot storytelling from my favorite sexy romance author. Once again LB does not disappoint. This was everything I expected and more. You will absolutely fall in love with Jack and his take charge, no-nonsense attitude. I'm extremely excited that Michelle might finally get her happy eve after too!!

This novella introduces Jack and Michelle in a chance encounter that quickly turns very naughty -- but delightfully so.

Oh what an ending -- and one I'm thinking is going to play havoc with our sexy pair. Can't wait to get some answers on what happens when Jack steps through that doorway and comes face-to-face with his scheduled appointment on November 11th.

Arrgghh! Lauren Blakely has done it again. All it takes is a few chapters and I'm in. This is the stuff fantasies are made of! Two strangers meet in a hotel bar and it doesn't take long to realise Jack and Michelle aren't going to stay strangers forever. Cannot wait to start the full length version of this novella.

This ~90 page novella was included in Nights With Him as an introduction to the two main characters.

I quickly read it and decided I'd keep reading Nights With Him. I like the characters- when they get a chance to breathe between their extracurricular activities.🔥

I just have to get this out of my system…JACK, JACK, JACK. Lauren Blakely has done it again my friends. Just when you think no one can top Clay, we meet Jack. He passed Clay in my book. Jack sees Michelle and he's instantly attracted to her. Michelle didn't miss the spark that zapped through her when she saw Jack. No last names, Just Jack and Michelle with two L's. They share a drink. They have some witty banter. They touch. Can they have just one night together? Their chemistry is off the charts and Michelle can't resist Jack's dirty mouth. Can Jack just have Michelle for one night? Will they want more of each other in the morning?

"What's your favorite body part?" she asked.
"I've always been told I have great ears. It's weird, but women sometimes stop me on the street to comment on my ears." he said.

"I noticed how hot you are when you walked into the hotel an hour ago."
Hot. He'd called her hot. Not pretty. Not beautiful. But hot. She'd take hot. He's happily take being called hot, because hot was what she felt when he said it. Hot all over. Bothered in all the right places.
"How hot?" she asked, eager or more compliments.

He leaned in closer, and lowered his voice to a sexy whisper. "Fucking hot."

Lauren Blakely ROCKS IT OUT again! For those of you who weren't a big fan of Michelle Milo in the beginning of the series, One Night With Her will change your perception of her rather quickly. One Night With Her is part of the INCREDIBLE Seductive Nights series, but it is a prequel to the upcoming standalone novel NIGHTS WITH HIM, which I am TOTALLY looking forward to!

Can I just say, Jack Sullivan will melt your panties off in the first FIVE MINUTES! NO JOKE! Jack Sullivan is a gorgeous, very successful, oh and did I say GORGEOUS businessman, who instantly falls in LUST with a beautiful woman he spots across the hotel bar. He wants nothing but to show this woman pleasure behind her dreams. Neither of them are looking for a relationship. One night. That's it. Nothing more. Nothing less. No dishing out their past. Nothing personal...period. What they didn't realize is that their instant chemistry has taken hold and blossomed into something more after just one night. A second night? OF COURSE! Too bad their worlds are about to collide, and it could ruin everything!

AHHH! I KNEW IT! That ending was EPIC! What a way to keep me on my toes. I've been anxiously awaiting NIGHTS WITH HIM and after finishing ONE NIGHT WITH HER, and that killer cliffhanger, I am fucking CRAVING it! More Jack Sullivan will NEVER be a disappointment. Sorry to say, but Clay Nichols, MOVE OVER! JACK SULLIVAN is here to stay!

Everything about this book was amazing except for one thing: It was too short! I want more of Jack and Michelle. Lauren knows how to write erotica, she did a spectacular job with Clay (I miss his dirty mouth) & Julia, and now she’s done it again with Just Jack and Michelle with two Ls.

One night with her by Lauren Blakely photo pizap-com14141507930151_zps53892a35.jpg

One night with her introduces us to Jack’s life; to his sister, his company and to his past. It shows how wounded he is from his failed relationship and how Michelle made him forget everything and only want her, for only one night…. Or maybe more.

It was great getting the opportunity to read Michelle’s POV. She’s Milo’s sister and Clay’s best friend, and up until now she was a secondary character. Now it’s her time to have a HEA and a lot of steamy times with Jack!. Maybe Jack is the cure for her non-reciprocal love toward Clay.

I can't wait to read what happens in Nights With Him.

One Night With Her by Lauren Blakely is out of this world HOT! This is the beginning of Jack Sullivan and Michelle Milo's story.

Sex toy business mogul Jack Sullivan couldn't believe his eyes when he saw the beautiful woman walking to the bar, one he had spotted coming into the hotel earlier in the evening. He hasn't felt that way since losing his fiancée a year ago.

The beautiful psychologist Michelle Milo wanted to stop for a drink after the conference in the hotel. She couldn't believe her eyes when she locked them on the gorgeous man she noticed earlier in the evening. For the first time in a long time Michelle did not think about her brother's best friend, Clay, whom she's been secretly in love with for the past 10 years. Michelle found herself flirting tirelessly with the handsome man at the bar.

The flirting between Michelle and Jack quickly escalates and they found themselves passionate in a room together. All they both know is they both want more than just one night together.

Hang onto your hats because Jack and Michelle are in for a big surprise the next time their paths cross.

I can't wait to see what happens next in Nights With Him!

I have no words I literally can't think of way to say about what I just read!! Ok I can think of something...move over Clay cause Jack Sullivan is HOT!!

I didn't think it got much better than Clay but Lauren surprised me yet again with another book boyfriend I can't wait to crawl in bed with!
Jack Sullivan is labeled the most eligible bachelor and he is HOT , and he may have a job as a sec toy mogul, but that's just a bonus right.
Michelle never thought she'd get past Clay, but when feelings aren't returned and he is clearly in love with his wife a girl has to move on. Being a therapist is something she prides herself on, helping people is what she loves. Being the most sought after one is just icing on the cake.
One brief eye lock was all it took, one flirtatious drink and wow they have chemistry off the charts!
This book sucked me in just like all her others and left me panting for more! If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!
I love her writing style and the sexy way she describes everything about the characters, she peels back the layers of each character she writes and makes you need them.

You cannot pass this one up! It is FREE and it is the Prequel to Nights With Him (Seductive Nights Series) by Lauren Blakely.

Turn on the air conditioner on high to read this gem. "Just Jack" and "Michelle with double 'Ls" are immediately attracted to each other from across the room. One brief glance and neither one could forget the impact that one glance had on their hormones. I had to smile as I read how he approached her later on in the bar of the hotel, as he tried to put his moves on her. Their banter is what makes flirting worthwhile ( I was taking notes for future use!). A totally different approach to a common pick-up or hook-up; it shows that Jack is a talented and intelligent man.

As far as scorching hot... this is a five alarm fire! Bring your fire extinguishers with you when you read this novella. I am so looking forward to November 11 when Nights with Him will be live. That is the full novel, stand-alone mind you, detailing this sweeping love affair. Get ready, this guy will steal your heart!

4.5 stars!

This is the prequel from the book One night with Him and it was fantastic! It's just the night that the main characters met with very few information about their past and themselves!

I really enjoy it! The characters were nicely presented giving us just a taste of what to come.

The night among them was fantastic! It was full of feelings for them and for me! So intense!

My only problem was that when the story was giving us a tiny bit of background information, was really without feeling and flat. The difference among the steamy and intense interactions of Jack and Michelle and the flat descriptions of the surroundings when they weren't together was too much for me. Maybe it felt so much because it was a short story and not a book and there was not enough space for development. I'll find out during the next book, I guess :-)

I will definetely read the book One Night with Him right away! The story finished with a cliff hanger and I'm dying to know what will happen next!
