**Warning: Spare panties are needed for reading this'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 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?

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.
I don't think I've ever read a more endearing, filthy mouthed, sexual and charismatic hero before. Clay Nichols is my favorite type of leading man. He is successful, domineering, and sweet. So when he gets wrapped up with the secretive, headstrong, vixen, Julia things are bound to heat up and run amuck. 

Julia and Clay meet through mutual acquaintances. They never expected their passion and attraction to overrule their common sense. Their relationship may have started out purely physical, but deeper feelings soon develop on both sides of the equation leaving them both feeling very vulnerable. Julia has a secret to hide, a bar to keep afloat and a yearning for Clay. Clay has clients to fight for, an equal obsession for Julia and zero tolerance for secrets. You can see where this might get a little dicey. As they begin to learn more about one another, emotions begin to delve even deeper, until Julia's secret threatens her livelihood and Clay. There are somethings she just can't risk. Her heart is one of them but, Clay's well-being is more important than her love for him. It comes down to the wire. Clay and Julie are forced to make some of the hardest decisions of their life and they may have to sacrifice more than they are willing to.

I still can't get over this book. I've always stood by my claim that Ms. Blakely writes unusual yet, alluring characters. This time she threw in the towel and added a boat load more chemistry and sex. If anything could have made her books better it was this. No, I'm not just a book sl-t wanting more sex. Well... maybe. BUT Ms. Blakely's portrayal of the consuming lust, and evolving love between Julia and Clay is utterly captivating. I tend to see either great sex, or a great relationship/story in books. This book had both, in spades. I may love Ms. Blakely's books, but this one takes the cake. However, I will admit to being a little bit peeved with that ending... I mean come on! I know then second book is just around the corner but, I NEED more Clay and Julia... preferably now, please! Suffice it to say, this book is a keeper. From beginning to end, I fell in love with these characters and can't wait to see more of their story!

Happy Reading!
