AWRW Book Review: First Night (Seductive Nights), by Author Lauren Blakely @LaurenBlakely3

firstnightIt 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…

An erotic novella from the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…

What’s It About?

“Sometimes, a woman just needed to flirt off her stress.”

Julia Bell is looking for a no-strings-attached affair. Preferably, a man with eight inches, and a brain. Was that so much for a woman to ask?

“Softness was for kittens, pillows and pretty cashmere sweaters. Sex needed to be hard, hot, and oh-so-rough around the edges.”

Clay Nichols, an entertainment lawyer, is in San Francisco on business. He visits the bar where Julia works/co-owns and is immediately taken by her, (in more than one way). She invites him to stay past closing, and that is when things REALLY get interesting…

My Thoughts

Another awesome Lauren Blakely novel that I received in exchange for an honest review. Featuring, a strong, fiery, sexually liberated heroine who knows what she wants, and doesn’t depend on any man. Highly recommended to women who enjoy erotic romance, with a strong female lead. Warning, there is one heck of a cliff hanger in the end! And yes, I did grab the next book in the series, Night After Night! I’m dying to know what happens next with Julia and Clay!

First Night is a fun and sexy read that I finished in one sitting. The writing flows smoothly, and features the POV of both Julia and Clay. There was a mention of her being concerned that Clay was a cop, so I’m thinking she is/was involved with something unsavory, but it was dropped and wasn’t mentioned again. I’m curious if I will learn what exactly she is/was involved with in the next installment of the series.

Overall, 4/5 stars. 🙂
