About FIRST NIGHT:
An erotic novella from the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lauren Blakely...
It was only supposed to be one night…
When the sinfully handsome man walks into her bar in San Francisco, Julia Bell simply wants a break from the troubles that keep chasing her. That escape comes in the form of sexy, confident and commanding Clay Nichols, who captivates her mind AND turns her inside out with pleasure. The attraction is electric and they share one scorchingly hot night together, but they also discover there is more than just off-the-charts chemistry; the connection between them runs deep. Clay never thought he’d return to New York with this woman still on his mind. But he can’t get her out of his system, and he needs more of her…He wants more than just the first night…
*This is a prequel novella to the erotic romance NIGHT AFTER NIGHT releasing April 18th.*
A Note from Lauren:
"I am so excited to share my first erotic romance series with readers, and I want as many readers as possible to be introduced to the hotness of Clay Nichols!! You will need a spare set of panties, or two or three, if you read this book! That's why I am offering the full-length novel, NIGHT AFTER NIGHT, for pre-order at the special price of 99 cents. That's right! You don't have to wait for a sale. It is for the very short pre-order period only on Amazon and iBooks and for the first day of release on B&N on April 18th. I want to reward loyal readers with the lowest possible price and to give as many people as possible the chance to read. If you have already pre-ordered on Apple iBooks, you will automatically receive it for 99 cents! I will share the links as soon as the pre-order on Amazon goes live. The price will go to 2.99 on release day. NIGHT AFTER NIGHT will be followed by the second full-length novel, AFTER THIS NIGHT, on May 12th. That book is available for pre-order on iBooks for $2.99 and will go to $3.99 on release day. It will also be available for Amazon pre-order in mid-April for the same price."
No more sweet Ms. Blakely, she has been replaced by a sexy siren! Lauren's books have always been sexy and hot, with this little taster of what's to come, I think we are about to see a whole new side to her!
First Night is a short, tantalising teaser of Clay and Julia's first encounter. The chemistry is there with the underpinning of sweet romance. It certainly made me want to know more about these characters.
There is little room for character depth, or a large plot, now is not the time. This was a wham bam thank you ma'am introduction to Clay and the equally witty Julia. Both have experienced life's ups and downs and both just want to escape for one night of pure unadulterated lust. They are both young, free and single so why the hell not?!
It was great to see other characters pop up in this short story and I really can't wait to continue on this journey. Have I said that already?! Yes I need After This Night stat!
As ever, Ms. Blakely captures me with her writing. I know I'm going to pick up one of her books and not be disappointed. First Night was written in third person narrative and usually this can take me a while to get into but I was a third of the way through the book until I had even noticed so good job Lauren.
So to summarise; sexy short story, left me wanting more and I can't freaking wait!
