A Review of Night After Night (Seductive Nights Book 1) by Lauren Blakely
the third contemporary romance novel I’ve read by Lauren Blakely. She knows how
to turn up the heat between the sheets and wherever her characters can find a
place to sneak a kiss or two. So, let’s meet Julia, a sexy bar owner (Cubic Z) and
a bartender who knows how to churn out her signature drink – the Purple Snow Globe.
She has a sharp wit and knows how to deal with customers who try to hit on her.
looking for a no strings relationship until McKenna, her sister plays matchmaker,
and she meets Clay, a sexy entertainment lawyer. The chemistry between these two
is hot and heavy. However, Julia is trying her best to shield her heart. She’s also
in deep as a poker player in an underground poker ring run by Charlie, a man
she owes a lot of money all because of an ex-boyfriend. Because of this, she is
also shielding those she loves for fear of Charlie hurting them.
this was a quick read. The sex scenes were well done. I enjoyed the characters,
dialogue, and motivation. I also enjoyed the intrigue of danger lurking in the
shadows because of the debt Julia owes to Charlie. And just when I was looking
to turn the pages to see what happens next (Charlie and Clay come face-to-face),
the book ended and I was prompted to read the other book in the series. Anyway,
two thumbs up for this first book in the series!
Some of my
act all prim and demure like I planned to just kiss Clay and send him on his
way. But the thought of getting hot and bothered and then forbidding any
south-of-the-border activity had zero appeal to me. If I was going for him, I
was going for all of him. I didn’t care if that made me look sex-hungry. I was.
I was jonesing for the kind of roll in the hay that would demolish the tension
in my shoulders, let me forget the things I wanted to forget. I had so much trouble
in my life, no thanks to my ex, who’d left town and saddled me with all his
problems. Life had been non-stop pressure and worry since then, and I needed a
break from it for just one night.
