"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."

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 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?

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 to love about this book, it had hot steamy off the chart sex scenes, a blooming romance, angst, and of course dirty talks. If one steamy night in San Francisco had Clay begging more for Julia, just imagine what crazy sexual fantasies these two can fulfill one weekend in New York. Will one weekend be enough to satisfy their cravings? Or will Julia and Clay realize that they are perfect for each other in and outside of the bedroom? Or will lies and secrets tear this couple before they even had a chance? Did Clay leave his heart in San Francisco?
Julia Bell is a successful, independent, sassy women living in San Francisco. She owns a bar called Cubic Z and makes one hell of a cocktail. There are a few things Julia loves..She loves her family and friends, her bar, and of course she loves sex. Julia tries to keep her walls and heart guarded after a failed relationship with an ex. Besides making one hell of a cocktail, Julia can bluff her way in a game of poker. When Clay invites her to a weekend getaway to New York, Julia expected hot combustible sex but she didn't expect she would fall hard for him. So after one passion filled intense weekend, will Julia gamble her heart when Clay Nichols comes knocking on her door begging her to let him in?
Clay Nichols is one hot domineering alpha lawyer. He may be a lawyer but there is one thing he despises the most and that is LIARS!!! Having been burned by an ex, Clay only demands honesty. In New York, he really opens up himself to Julia. He leaves no secrets and stones unturned. One weekend with Julia was all he needed to see that Julia is f**king perfect for him. He has never met a woman who has the power to turn him on and satisfy his sexual hunger. Stockings and heels alone drove him crazy with lust for Julia. So will Clay be able to tame this fierce kitten and make her his? Excuse my language..or will he be able to f*ck the honesty right out of her?
Julia and Clay's chemistry was just COMBUSTIBLE!! Right off the bat, their sexual chemistry and attraction was SCORCHING HOT!! With Clay's dirty talks and kinks and Julia's sexual appetite, these two redefined the saying NYC: "The City that Never Sleeps." Let me just say, not much sleeping going on in NYC when these two are around each other. As for sexual compatibility, these two pass with flying colors but when it comes to honesty, Julia fails big time. As much as you wanted Julia to open up with Clay, I fully understood where she was coming from. Her need to protect her loved ones is her number one priority and I admire her strength and love for that.
Besides off the chart sex, Ms. Blakely was able to showcase how these two were more than just compatible sexually. I loved how we get to know more of Clay and Julia’s past. Clay's raw honesty was surprising. I didn't expect for him to be so open and I thought that was amazing especially coming from a hot alpha lawyer. I loved Julia's need to protect her loved ones. The storyline and Clay's dirty talks made me devour this book. I bow down to Ms. Blakely for her writing her first erotic romance series because in my opinion, she did one hell of a fantastic job.
The only complaint I have for Ms. Blakely is I need After This Night like right now. Can it be May already? I want Clay Nichols!! After this whirlwind relationship Clay and Julia takes us on in Night after Night, I need one Julia's special cocktails, the purple snow globe. So if you haven't read First Night, go read it and I can guarantee that you will definitely want to read Night after Night.

5 Holy Hotness Stars!
"He’s the sexiest, dirtiest, smartest, and kindest man I have ever met."
Clay Nichols is B A C K! And he’s even more McSteamy in this book than he was in First Night, and he was super steamy in there. We met Clay and Julia in First Night which, ironically, is also their first meeting. We saw a glimpse of their personalities and their lives, the sizzling moment that they met, and the intense night that they shared.
Now, in Night After Night, Clay and Julia’s story continues. Lauren Blakely takes us further into their relationship, the history and secrets they both have, although Julia’s baggage weighs a ton more than Clay’s past experiences.
Julia is in deep trouble from her ex’s debts. She’s keeping it to herself, as a secret, to keep everyone she loves and cares for safe from whatever harm this situation she’s in may bring. Lies and secrets are deal breakers for Clay. But together, they are exceptional so can they survive the secret Julia is keeping?
I love how vocal Clay is on how and what he wants with Julia, it’s simple and uncomplicated and he is just so charming when he’s being straight-forward and bossy. Clay is as sweet as he is very filthy-mouthed. In a panty melting way, of course. And let’s not forget, Julia is also an awesome character.
"Whenever he opened or closed his eyes, she was there. Beautiful and beckoning, she lured him in. He could feel the trace of her, touch the outline of her. She’d left her mark on him and he wanted her day after day, night after night."
I like how Lauren Blakely didn’t make her as some whiny, insecure heroine. She says what’s on her mind, she admits her feeling even only to herself, she knows what she wants, and the only thing worrying her is Charlie.
I enjoyed every second reading this -- their email exchange felt like a high school thing, it’s sweet. Julia and Clay’s conversations are exciting and swoon-worthy. And oh, their sex… their sex is double the holy hotness from First Night! Night After Night is more thrilling, not just in the bedroom department. Miss Blakely did a wonderful job writing hot sex conversations in one line, then making it adorably sweet in the next and then making you nervous and curious the next line, very effortlessly. Night After Night offers a good mix of every emotion you can feel, and how this book ended will make you itch for the next one already!
I am now a fan of not only Clay and Julia but of Miss Lauren Blakely as well!
Stars: 5 stars!
Recommended to: Lovers of charming, filthy-mouthed lawyers and fiery bartenders.
POV: Third person. Dual POV.
Cliffhanger: Yes. Sort of.
EXTRA COMMENT: Night After Night is a fantastic follow through from First Night! And as usual, the ending left me wanting more! I cannot wait for the next one!!
