Your presence is requested for another installment in the tale of Julia and Clay, two red-hot lovers. Come inside their world of passion and suspense once more for a deliciously erotic and heart-poundingly dangerous story of pearls, handcuffs, thieves, mobsters, poker and pleasure in the city of sin…

Happy endings don’t come easily. They’re hard-won and Clay Nichols is going to have to keep earning his…


Now living together in New York with her debt safely paid off, sexy bartender Julia Bell and hot-as-hell entertainment lawyer Clay thought their future was clear sailing.

But life doesn’t work that way and the fiery lovers run into a slew of new challenges as Clay tries to put a ring on it. Trouble looms in every corner–trouble from clients, trouble with timing, and, most of all, trouble from her past returns on their trip to Vegas. A dangerous man who knows much more about Julia than he should surfaces in Sin City where they’re supposed to be enjoying a weekend getaway. Following her in the casino, watching her every move at the pool, targeting her as she plays poker.

Too bad Clay is called away repeatedly, leaving Julia alone in a sprawling hotel full of dark corners, back rooms, and unsavory characters. Can Clay save her from danger one more time, and then finally get down on one knee? Or will he be too late for the woman he adores?


Read on in ONE MORE NIGHT, a new novel in the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Seductive Nights series packed with more sex, more dirty talk and more danger. And per your request, the recipe for Julia’s award-winning cocktail, the Purple Snow Globe, has finally been revealed in this ebook!

 


“You sure you’re not sneaking off to Los Angeles to get me a ring?”
He laughed once more. She’d been trying to get it out of him since the night he told her he’d wanted to take her to Vegas for the weekend. Even with her business meeting, she was hunting for clues of a proposal. Only his brother knew he planned to ask her to marry him this weekend. “I’m not going to Los Angeles to get a ring, but even if I were I would never tell you,” he said.
“You do realize that gives absolutely nothing away?”
He nodded, tapping her forehead lightly, then running his finger down to her nose. “I know,” he said, then nibbled on the end of her nose.
“Well, enough about rings. What’s in that box there you’re hiding by your leg?”
“You saw it?”
“My gift-spotting skills know no bounds.”
He handed her the turquoise-wrapped box with a white bow on it. She eyed the bow. “In case you want to tie me up on the plane, looks like we already have something to use.”
His dick twitched against the denim of his jeans. She was always on the same wavelength as he was. “I may need to tie up your hands as a reminder to bring your poker face to the meeting today.”
She gave him a sharp-eyed stare. “Do not ever doubt my poker face. It is masterful,” she said, as she tugged one end of the ribbon, letting the white satiny bow fall across the shiny wrapping paper. Ripping off the paper, she popped open the top of the box, and there it was. That glow in her eyes. The absolute joy in receiving gifts. She was a delight to give presents to because she never faked her appreciation. Reaching inside the box, she wrapped her fingers around the necklace then gently lifted the long strand of pearls. “Oh my God, they’re stunning. They’re so fucking gorgeous.”
She draped the pearls over her hand, the long strands like waterfalls of smooth, rounded beads. She gazed at them like they were precious, a fitting response, since they were. “They’re real,” she said, with wonder in her voice as she looked up at him.
He nodded. “I would never give you something fake.”
“I’ve never had pearls before. I’ve never thought of myself as a pearl person.”
“Then let me show you how I want you to wear them, so you can see how absolutely fucking sexy a pearl person can be,” he said, standing up and making his way to his suitcase. He opened one of the zipper compartments where he’d tucked a dress for her, and brought it over. “Another gift. Put this on.”
“Now?”
He nodded. “Yes. Model it for me.”
“As you wish,” she said, standing up and glancing once at the cockpit. “What about the pilot?”
“I told him we’d be making full use of the plane and he said he’d have his eyes on the sky the whole time.”
“Then keep your eyes on me,” she said, looping the strand around her neck, then stripping off her skirt, letting it pool at her feet, her gaze locked on him the whole time. He watched her, growing harder with each layer she removed—now her shirt, then her lacy bra. He reclined the spacious leather seat, taking in the show, savoring every second of her undressing.

To be deeply, madly, desperately in love with the woman you wanted to f*** was the greatest rush, the most lasting high.


Clay and Julie are off on a romantic weekend to Vegas and Clay has all kinds of surprises planned. Unfortunately, there are some surprises neither of them are expecting. And things are not quite smooth sailing.

Their little romantic weekend turns into an adventure with some good aspects and some bad ones. There is suspense, danger, excitement, hidden agendas, and a few mistakes. Clay and Julia have to work together in various circumstances and deal with underlying issues. But no matter how hard Clay tries to make everything perfect for Julia, he quickly discovers that things never go perfectly especially when they are involved. But together they are passionate, devoted, loving, and connected. Now they just have to deal with the other factors getting in the middle of it.

"Do you realize I fall more madly in love with you every day?" (Clay)
"Good. Because maybe that love will make you forget how much trouble I am." (Julia)
"I love all of you, even your trouble..." (Clay)

Clay is just such a totally delicious, charismatic character. He's bossy, dominant, and protective, but also loving, vulnerable, and thoughtful. He is hella-sexy and totally swoon-worthy. Julia is tough, feisty, independent, and strong willed. She is no wallflower and is not afraid to take charge when needed. She both challenges Clay when he needs it, but also knows when to submit to him. 

Their relationship dynamic is perfectly balanced and they flow together beautifully. They may have some differences in background, personal issues, and miscommunication, but they have really come a long way together. 

They were scotch and water, they were vodka and tonic. They were better together.

This was another engaging installment in this series from Lauren Blakely. It made me smile, laugh, swoon, and fan myself a bit. I adore Clay and Julia, and this just really added so much more to their love story. It was humorous, intriguing, suspenseful, sexy, and romantic. It took the characters to places that I did not expect, threw in some twists and surprises, and let us see them progress even more.

I enjoyed getting to see her sister McKenna and her husband Chris(Trophy Husband). I really liked Clay's younger brother, Brent. He is hot like Clay, but also a little more relaxed and funny. I am looking forward to more with him in a future book. 

On a personal note, I was a beta reader for the original short story First Night and even then I just felt like Clay and Julia had so much more to tell ... So I was excited when they spoke to Lauren and she continued the series. And even though it could have been complete with After This Night with a happy ending, I really like that she went a step further and took the characters in this direction. It is so much fun to revisit them and have this little adventure with them. Fans of this series, will enjoy spending more time with them and seeing where their story goes. It truly left me with a smile on my face and in love with Clay even more. And wanting more Brent...

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.

A sensual, emotionally-charged erotic romance from the New York Timesand USA Today Bestselling author Lauren Blakely... 

He plays to win and isn't afraid to break all the rules...

Fiery bartender Julia Bell has been hit on by her fair share of customers, but has never been tempted to dip so much as a toe in that particular dating pool. She wants a man who can claim her body AND captivate her mind. Enter Clay Nichols, a lawyer with a dirty mind and a mouth to match. Confident, sexy, and commanding, he takes Julia to new heights of pleasure. And after one unforgettable weekend together, he craves more of her. If only she hadn't taken off without saying goodbye...

Julia has no room in her life for commitment, not while she has serious trouble breathing down her neck, thanks to the criminal dabblings of a former flame. She doesn't want to involve anyone she cares about in the kind of danger that's chasing her and that's the problem with Clay--she's falling for him. Hard. He makes her heart race, and sets her body on fire. 

He’s determined to keep her in his life, no matter the cost. She’s the woman he desires in every way. But when the past threatens to destroy any chance at a future, she has to make a choice --keep running, or give love a shot with a man who can hold her imagination, and her heart, night after night...

She holds the cards, but he doesn’t want to play her games…

Clay Nichols can’t get Julia Bell out of his mind. He’s so drawn to her, and to the nights they shared, that he can’t focus on work or business, only her. And she’s pissing him off with her hot and cold act. She has her reasons though – she’s trying to stay one step ahead of the trouble that’s been chasing her for months now, thanks to the criminal world her ex dragged her into. If only she can get out of the mess she’s in then maybe she can invite the man who ignites her back in her life, so she can have him – heart, mind and body.

He won’t take less than all of her, and the full truth too. When he runs into her again at her sister’s wedding, they have a second chance but she’ll have to let him all the way in. And they’ll learn just how much more there is to the intense sexual chemistry they share, and whether love can carry them well past the danger of her past and into a new future, after this night…
