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.*
First Night by Lauren Blakely
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
3.5 top notch flirting STARS
“Eight inches.Julia longed for eight inches.Or really, eight inches and a brain.Was that so much for a woman to want?”
Nope, can't say that I blame the girl. Perfectly reasonable request.
Julia is a bartender who is craving some man action. But please a real one, not some wannabe who drinks sweet girl drinks in a bar. Scotch, Whiskey and Bourbon is just the kind of taste this girl is looking for and as luck would have it the right specimen just walked into her bar. Clay, is an entertainment lawyer and he is just in town for a day. Perfect!
“He was tall. He was broad. He had the perfect amount of stubble on his jawline, and those eyes were to-die for – deep brown and piercing. Then there was his hair – thick, brown, and ideal for sliding fingers through.”
First Night is a very short Novella and only the start for a series with a few more instalments. The plot for this one can be summed up in one word. SEX!
But that's not to say I didn't like this one. I just want to make sure you know what you're getting here. Well, in all fairness there is some really awesome flirting going on. Seriously. Clay and Julia have this thing down to a T. Really entertaining...oh, and the sex is hot and heavy! Some light BDSM is involved. *happy dancing* Also, you can bet your ass that the guy fulfils the inch requirement...he might even surpass the expectations. *wink wink*
“Softness was for kittens, pillows and pretty cashmere sweaters. Sex needed to be hard, hot and oh-so-rough around the edges.”
Yup. Told ya! That quote there absolutely sold me at 34%.
All in all a solid start and it makes me want to read more. I just hope the writing gets a little better. It's probably me, since I just finished reading a really good book, but the dialogue felt a bit wooden from time to time. Oh well...going to read on. ;D
Looking forward to see what's in store for Clay and Julia!
