After This Night (Seductive Nights #2) by Lauren Blakely

This is the conclusion of Julia and Clay's story that began in the New York Times Bestseller Night After Night.

"Why do you like me tied up sometimes?"

"Because the way I feel for you is so out of control that this is one way for me to feel in control again.”

Their world was passion, pleasure and secrets.

Far too many secrets. But 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 this mess, 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...

Please note: This book is intended for 18+ due to dirty talk, light bondage, and lots of sexy scenes.

5 out of 5 stars

I could not have asked for a better ending to Clay and Julia's story. I love them! 

I think Clay and Julia are fantastic, well thought out characters, and I was immediately pulled back into their world. Their connection and chemistry was so much deeper on an emotional level, it made their passion and commitment for one another even more off the charts! It made for an incredible build throughout the story.

Just like Night After Night, there was major hotness with their dirty mouths and sexcapades but since their feelings for one another are so much deeper, it really made the sexy times seem more intense. It was the kind of hot where I had to set my Kindle down and walk away for a bit! Lauren Blakely knows how to write some seriously steamy scenes.

I really like Julia’s feistiness and spunk but when she opens up to Clay and is more vulnerable, I thought it was a wonderful moment and loved her even more. I fell in love with Clay a little bit more in this as well. How much he cares for Julia and wanted to help her, he is so protective, sincere and adoring.

There is still an element of stress and anxiety thanks to the bad things that Julia has to deal with and I was totally into the drama. I loved her determination on how she wanted to handle everything and how she wanted to do it on her own.

There were lots of other characters integrated into this story and it is a fun added element I always enjoy. I was thrilled that we got more Cam (I think he needs his own story!) and I'm thankful that the situation with Michele had closure. I really like her but certain things stressed me out. I'm glad she gets her own story in Nights With Him (Seductive Nights #3). She needs a happy ending.

I'm a sucker for good email banter and Clay and Julia have the most fantastic flirty banter ever and I pretty much grinned every time it happened. Excellent ending and epilogue too!

After This Night was a fast paced, super sexy, and excellent read. I love how everything unfolded and all my questions were answered. I was happily lost in their world of sex, love, and heat! My heart is full because they are so perfect for each other and I am thrilled with the conclusion.
