Release Day Launch, Reviews & Giveaway: Nights with Him: Lauren Blakely


Nights With HimNights With Him: 

A sensual, sexy, standalone romance novel in the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Seductive Nights Series by Lauren Blakely...

Jack Sullivan is a Sex Toy Mogul.

An extremely eligible bachelor in New York, he’s the full package, right down to his full package. Hell, this man could be the model for one of the toys his company, Joy Delivered, peddles. Instead, he’s the powerful and successful CEO and he’s got commitment issues a mile-long after the tragic way his relationship with his fiancée ended.

He’s looking for a way to erase the pain and that arrives in the form of Michelle Milo. From her pencil skirts to her high heels, she’s his perfect fantasy, especially since she has no idea who he is the night they meet at a hotel bar. He doesn’t have a clue either that she’s the brilliant psychologist his sister has arranged for him to see to help him get over his past. She’s simply the stunning woman he takes to bed that night and delivers many Os of joy too.

His touch helps her forget that other man.

When he shows up at her office door the next day, there’s no way in hell she’s going to treat him after they’ve slept together. Jack isn’t willing to let go of the first woman he’s felt anything for in years so he proposes a deal – share her nights with him for thirty days. At the end of one month of exquisite pleasure, they walk away, having helped each other move on from their haunted pasts.

But soon, all those nights threaten to turn into days as the lines between lust and matters of the heart start to blur. Can two people so terribly afraid of love truly fall head over heels?

 **NIGHTS WITH HIM is a standalone full-length novel in the bestselling SEDUCTIVE NIGHTS series following the love affair of a new couple.**

Message from Lauren:
The Seductive Nights erotic romance series continues with a new installment starring a new couple ! While the first four books in the series followed Julia and Clay, Nights With Him will be about Michelle and Jack, and can be read without having read the earlier books. (Though, why wouldn't you want to read about Clay and Julia?!)

I can't wait to introduce readers to Jack Sullivan. He's sexy, broody, witty, smart, and a little bit damaged and he's also my favorite kind of hero - the kind who wears a suit! Jack Sullivan is a sex toy mogul and is the CEO of a high-end line of pleasure products - he'll bring all that experience to the bedroom as he sweeps Michelle Milo off her feet - expect many steamy encounters between these two! Michelle needs some good loving after all - readers know her already as Clay's friend from Night After Night who loved him unrequitedly from afar. Now it's finally her turn in the romance arena, and Jack will make sure she gets it good!!

To give readers a chance to get to know this newest dirty-talking alpha hero of mine, I released a free prequel novella called ONE NIGHT WITH HER about the night they meet and the mind-blowing encounter they have in a New York City hotel.

Michelle Milo is the straight-laced therapist who has a much better fantasy love life than real one. She spent the last ten years in love with someone who had no clue. But one night gives her the chance to walk on the wild side when she meets a sexy, flirty, stranger, Jack.

Jack Sullivan has his own personal issues and is living with guilt and pain from his past. He runs a sex toy business,  but was leading a life without pleasure. But one night with Michelle sparks need and want in him and has him ending his celibate streak. 
These two radiated sexual tension in waves. It oozed off the page. And their coupling was hot, volatile and extraordinary for each of them. And as a one night stand, it should have been safe from awkwardness or repercussions. 

But their paths cross again unexpectedly requiring a bit of a detour and new connection. But Jack knows he wants her even if he is not ready for a relationship. And Michelle has a hard time resisting him even though she has no intention of getting involved with a guy with intimacy issues. So Jack proposes a deal...thirty nights of pleasure, no strings, no feelings, just sex. And Jack is quite the sales man with his sexy as sin magnetism and charm.

But will thirty days help get each other out of their systems or lead to more problems?

Together they are fun, flirty, and passionate. It is fun seeing Michelle's wild, sensual, naughty side that Jack brings out in her. But she still has fears and insecurities stemming from her past and does not want to trust her heart to anyone. But she manages to help Jack forget his guilt and pain, so he finds he wants more of her rather than less. 

This is a journey of two people trying to put their pasts behind them, enjoy life, develop a true connection, and move forward. But first they have to face their fears head on and deal with the fall out.  

And in the midst of the love story, there are also secrets, subterfuge, social media and political agendas at play. It just takes one spin to wreak havoc on someone's life. 

I adored Jack. What a delicious, sexy, sweetheart with a bossy and controlling edge. He was protective, attentive and devoted to her in his own way. He was also a naughty boy that loved pushing boundaries and exploring with Michelle. But underneath it all, he was broken, racked with guilt and had difficulty expressing love. 

Michelle really surprised me with her sassiness, spunk, sexiness, and humor. But she also had her issues that held her back due to her history of unrequited love and her understanding of complex relationship problems due to the nature of her job.

Together they were playful, hot, compatible, and a perfect match. But they had obstacles to overcome, including themselves. They also had a deadline and some external drama affecting them and providing further challenges, mystery, and suspense. Their own fears cripple them at times and prevent them from giving the other what they need. And it will take self discovery and patience to determine what choices would lead to least amount of regrets.

This book can easily be read as a stand alone, but I enjoyed getting glimpses or mentions of old friends like her brother Davis, Jill, Sutton, Reeve, Clay, Julia and Nate. I always like to catch the little characters cross overs and see their fun interactions in Lauren's books. I loved his feisty, outspoken sister, Casey and caught tease of maybe an attraction toward Nate...hhhmm the possibilities.

This book was sultry and steamy. They had a very healthy and fulfilling sexual life together that started strong and did not wane. But there was also romance, drama, secrets, and emotional conflict. It was told in Michelle and Jack's points of view with a chapter here and there by a couple of others. It was humorous, passionate, intriguing, and emotional while it dealt with the power of love to heal damaged hearts and provide redemption. I was not sure what to expect from Michelle's book because we really did not know that much about her since previously she was always the one in the background giving out advice. But I thoroughly enjoyed Michelle and Jack's engaging, sexy, swoony, and heartfelt story.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Michelle Milo and Jack Sullivan are two people to whom sex is an everyday topic of discussion. Just usually not sex they are participating in.

Michelle is a psychologist specializing in relationships and intimacy. But she hasn’t had much luck in her own relationships, especially as she fell in love with a man who never looked at her with anything other than friendship and is not in love with another woman.

Jack is a sex toy mogul and New York City’s most eligible bachelor. But his bachelor status rose after his fiancee died in a sudden accident and the tabloids painted him as the grieving widower.

Though neither main character had been in a relationship in the previous year, they were both looking for ways to put their past behind them. In each other, Jack and Michelle found something that made them forget the pain they were holding and begin to work past it. Thirty days of fantastic, no strings sex seems like just the ticket to help them forget.

For as low key as their arrangement and as hot as their chemistry, they both have issues to work out. Add in a wrench that knocks the legs out from under Michelle, and they both have to reevaluate what they are doing together and what their relationship means.

This book is filled with heat and steam, as one would expect when one character counsels about sex and the other sells products to enhance the pleasures of sex. And boy is Jack well practiced, with his products and without. The level of sparks flying felt higher than others of Lauren’s books, which is what I expected based on both the blurb and all the promotional materials that have been filtering around since the book was announced. And it was exactly what I was hoping for from Jack and Michelle. 

I loved the ending of this story, and everything Michelle and Jack had been dealing with throughout the story makes sense and falls into place as the resolution approaches. To me, it ended in the best possible way. The only way it could have worked out from the beginning.
