@InkSlingerPR's Blog Tour: NIGHT AFTER NIGHT by @LaurenBlakely3: Review & Giveway


**Warning: Spare panties are needed...you'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!



Night After Night was a deliciously hot, dirty and very entertaining story!  Sometimes when you read erotica the story takes the back seat to all the scorching sex, but Lauren Blakely doesn't follow this line of thinking (thank goodness), the story of Clay and Julia is really engaging and hard to put down (and the sex is Kindle melting hot)!

Lauren Blakely's writing is easy to get swept up in and in a blink I was done with Night After Night and left craving more!  Julia and Clay are a refreshing change to your typical main characters in contemporary romance.  There is no past traumas in their pasts, no abuse.  They both come from "normal", well adjusted families and had a typical childhood.  Clay likes sex in all ways because he just likes sex (kinks and all).  Julia isn't shy and is comfortable asking for what she wants (and taking it too).  I really liked this combination of strong personalities coming together and igniting my Kindle.  Lauren Blakely has created a set of interesting characters that are sarcastic, funny and for the most part pretty well adjusted, and I love that!

Night After Night is the story of Julia and Clay realizing that they want more than just one night together.  This story was easy to jump in and read.  There is a bit of drama with an issue from Julia's past that keeps her from truly being "free" and she has a hard time opening up to Clay.  Clay just wants one thing from Julia (besides sex): honesty.  While I enjoyed this story, there were times where I didn't understand what Julia's "problem" truly entailed and I wish that was expanded on so I could understand why she didn't want to let Clay know about her secret, but even with that I really liked the twist that the female lead had the "secret" not the male lead.

All in all this was a great, HOT read that showed you can have heat and sweet.  If you are looking for a story that has heart, heat and an interesting plot, then Night After Night is for you!  I can not WAIT to get my hands on the next book in this series, After this Night, coming in May 2014!


**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 and can be pre-ordered now.
