Enter Clay Nichols, the entertainment lawyer with a dirty mind and a mouth to match. Their connection is off the charts hot, but can it last beyond the first night?
What happens after the happy ending? Bestselling author Lauren Blakely gives readers a glimpse of the happily ever afters for her popular romantic couples – Kat and Bryan from Caught Up In Us, Chris and McKenna from Trophy Husband, Jill and Davis from Playing With Her Heart, and Jane and Matthew from Far Too Tempting.

4.5 Short, sweet, and sexy stars!

FIRST NIGHT is a short novella with Clay, an entertainment lawyer who is Davis' best friend in Playing with Her Heart and Julia who is McKenna's sister from Trophy Husband.

Julia is just looking for a man with a brain who can satisfy her needs. Clay is looking for a fiery woman that can handle him. 

Clay heads to San Francisco on business and stops in to meet Julia at the bar she works at(at the urging of her sister, McKenna). The meet, they talk, they lust, and sparks fly! 

They both like to dominate and control, but know when it is best to submit. Their chemistry is off the charts! I loved that they both knew what they wanted and just went for it. Clay is a bossy, hot alpha male who just radiates sex. I loved him from the start! He is a dirty talker and Julia has no trouble jumping right in with him. She is sassy, outspoken, and a real spitfire. 

These two are perfectly matched, but there is one huge obstacle in their way to even attempting to have more than just one night. This was just such a tease for this fun, vibrant, and intense couple. I was not ready for it to be over. It had me messaging Lauren when I was done, saying I wanted more of them! 

And the EVER AFTERS are heartwarming little extras from some of our favorite couples from Caught Up in Us, Trophy Wife, Playing With Her Heart and Far Too Tempting. They were so so sweet, romantic, and fun. I loved getting to witness more of their happy, significant moments with them.

So this is a short novella, but gives us five tantalizing and engaging reads in one. As with all of Lauren's books, there is humor, steam, romance, and great connections. I cannot get enough of her characters and books.

Thanks to Lauren Blakely for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.
