Forbidden Nights by Lauren Blakely

The cover for Lauren Blakely’s next title in her Seductive Nights Series, FORBIDDEN NIGHTS, is here and it’s a beauty! I am so happy to share it with you today. But first, we want to share just a little bit about Lauren Blakely and a taste of FORBIDDEN NIGHTS with you.

Lauren Blakely is well known for writing sexy, heartfelt and humorous contemporary romance as well as deeply emotional new adult stories — one commonality in all her books is the scorching hot sexy times. And this book is absolutely no different! Nate Harper and Casey Sullivan have some thrilling moments together.

And… we have a surprise for you!

FORBIDDEN NIGHTS will release on February 17th!

That’s a full month earlier than originally planned! So you will get to experience Nate and Casey and all of their sexy and heartfelt moments together even sooner! Still dying to get your hands on this smoking couple? Here’s a little taste for you from Lauren Blakely:

“Just relax and let me lead,” he said, whispering in her ear, a waft of her citrus scent drifting by his nostrils. She shivered briefly against him, and that nearly did him in. He stayed strong, swaying gently, guiding her in slow, sensuous moves. “I’ll show you how to let go, but you have to trust me. And that’s where it starts. I can show you how good it will feel when you give up control.”

She breathed in sharply, like she was acclimating to new air on a distant planet. “Why do men like a woman to give up a control? What is it about the lack of control that men like so much?”

“It’s not that they like a lack of control. They want a woman who wants to give herself to him. He wants a woman to melt into his arms, to get aroused from a kiss on the back of her neck,” he said, and traced a fingertip gently under her hair, watching her reaction as she drew in a breath. “It’s the hand on her arm,” he said, now trailing his fingers down her bare skin to her elbow as he leaned in to whisper. “Or warm breath near her ear.” She gasped, and he kept going. “He wants a woman who’s so turned on, she’ll nearly beg for it. He wants her abandon. He wants to be the only one to make her feel that way.”

She parted her lips to speak, but he shushed her with his fingertip against her lips. God, he was so tempted to let her suck on his finger right now, to watch her simulate a blow job, to let her show him what she could do. But that would come later. He needed to kiss her first.

That is, after he teased her…

Are you as excited as we are about this book?!

And now, here’s the fabulous cover for FORBIDDEN NIGHTS!

ABOUT FORBIDDEN NIGHTS:

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

Sinfully sexy hotel CEO Nate Harper knows exactly how to please a woman. He’s equally skilled in keeping his heart safe from the kind of hurt his ex inflicted on him years ago. But one thing he’s not so good at what-so-ever is getting his mind and all his dirty thoughts off the gorgeous, outgoing, and absolutely captivating Casey Sullivan, the new head of the Joy Delivered company.

They’ve been friends for years now, and Casey trusts Nate completely. So it makes perfect sense to her to ask him for hands-on guidance when she finds herself in need of some of his romantic expertise.

The trouble is, his heart may be signing up for more than it bargained for when he agrees to help her learn to abandon her need for control in the bedroom. Because as she experiences what it means to let go, he’ll start to experience what it means to feel again…

But what happens when all those forbidden nights turn into a deeper connection that’s much more than either bargained for?

*FORBIDDEN NIGHTS is a standalone full-length novel in the bestselling SEDUCTIVE NIGHTS series following the love affair of Nate and Casey. You can read it on its own, but you would likely enjoy the other books too.*

After This Night by Lauren Blakely – Release Day

We are thrilled to bring you the Release Day Launch for Lauren Blakely’s AFTER THIS NIGHT!

AFTER THIS NIGHT is the second full-length novel from her first Erotic Romance Series, The Seductive Nights Series!

After This Night

AFTER THIS NIGHT EXCERPT:

“I wish I were there wearing your clothes right now.”

He laughed. “That’s what you want to be doing? Because I’d like to be fucking you if you were here.”

“Well, that too. But then I’d put on your shirt.”

“You like that, don’t you?”

“I know you do too,” she said.

“I do. Seeing you in my shirt and your heels is my kryptonite.”

“Oh, is that it? That’s your kryptonite?”

“Or maybe it’s just that you are,” he whispered, admitting more than he wanted to.

“I think the same could be said here.”

There was a pause, and though they were three thousand miles apart, the silence was heady. He was in a drugged-out state tonight. This woman was his pill, and closeness with her was what he craved most even as he feared she would destroy his heart. Smash it to a million tiny pieces and eat it for lunch. But he had a built-in barrier in distance, and with no trips to San Francisco on his immediate calendar he saw nothing wrong with this temporary moment of relief from the pressure inside of him from wanting her. They couldn’t be together in any meaningful way, and he couldn’t get hurt if he didn’t actually see her. Right? Right, he answered for himself.

“What are we doing, Julia?” he asked, and he was sure she could hear the longing in his tone, but he didn’t care. There was no need to hide it after they’d just broken down and pleasured themselves together.

“I wish I knew,” she said, her voice wistful and full of yearning. “I really wish I knew.”

He heaved a sigh, trying to sort out his thoughts, but his brain was a mixed-up mess and he didn’t know how to untangle all the threads. Or if he wanted to remain tangled up with her instead.

“What are you going to do when we hang up?” he asked, changing direction.

“Read a book.”

“What are you reading these days?”

“A crazy story about a guy who treks across Antarctica.”

“That does sound crazy.”

“Yeah. He’s kind of hallucinating and talking to penguins right now,” she said with a small laugh.

“Can you blame him? I have to imagine if you’re stuck in the polar ice cap that talking to penguins might be a rare source of comfort.”

“As long as he doesn’t eat the penguins I’ll keep reading it.”

“Here’s to no penguin meals in the books we read.”

“What will you do?”

“I suspect I will fall fast asleep and dream of a beautiful redhead on the other side of the country.”

“She would like that dream very much,” she said in a sweet voice, the kind that worked its way beneath all the hard edges in him, and settled deep in his heart. “Will I talk to you again soon?”

He took a fueling breath, and put his armor back on, steeling himself. “I don’t know the answer to that.”

About AFTER THIS NIGHT:

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.

Night After Night (Seductive Nights, #1)Night After Night by Lauren Blakely

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“It was all she could say. All she could manage. She shouted ‘yes’ over and over as he pounded into her, taking her body, taking it back for him, claiming her with hard, rough, f_ _ _ _ing she wanted……

This is just a snippet of the sex between Clay & Julia. It is always, hot, wild, soft, exciting, amazing, new and raw, IT’S EVERYTHING. Clay & Julia are one of those couples that stays with me long after I’ve read a book. I feel for them, Lauren Blakely makes them come off the pages and right into your heart. The emotions and the feelings are so real that I cried, my heart was pulled in.

I love that Julia is not a weak woman, she is strong, smart, independent, very sexual and dominant. I love even more that Clay is strong, controlling, very sexual, and dominant. But he also has a good heart and is confident. Confident enough to walk away from what he wants, because he will not accept lying. But, oh what I love the most is the way they talk to each other, the sex talk and the kink, the way they feel about each other. It’s loving and it’s raunchy.

Loved Night After Night and I am anxiously waiting for After This Night.

View all my reviews

Night Ater Night by Lauren Blakely-Paperback Preorder

“Let me control your pleasure.” 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, the danger lurks around every corner, 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?

A sensual, emotionally charged erotic romance from the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lauren Blakely

Night After Night (Seductive Nights) (Volume 1)

First Night (Seductive Nights) by Lauren Blakely – My Review

Meet Clay Nichols:
“..the voice was rough and gravelly, and sent a charge through her with its masculine sexiness.”
“He was tall. He was broad. He had the perfect amount of stubble on his jaw line, and those eyes were to-die for – deep brown and piercing. Then there was his hair – thick, brown, and ideal for sliding fingers through. She didn’t want to take her eyes off him, but she knew better than to stare.”

Meet Julia Bell:
“…hot as sin with those curves, those breasts, and the perfect kind of hips that he’d like to get his hands on. Her hair was lush and reddish-brown. Her lips were full and ripe for kissing. As well as other things. But, more than that, she was feisty, with that smart mouth firing off innuendo with every word. She could dish it out, and she could take it.”

Clay and Julia are sexually dominant, confident and hot. They each know what they want and they go into this First Night with no expectations other than hot, steamy sex for some needed release. I love the interaction between the two of them, feisty and full of sexual innuendos. They seem to “get” each other from the beginning. They get into it right away; there is no romancing and no prolonged back and forth. They just go for it. The sex is hot and they each want to dominate and control, but they also know when to submit and let the other take control. I love Clay’s commands and dirty talk. Julia knows how to give it and she knows how to take it. This novella is all about their night of sex.

One of my favorite lines: “Do you want a Purple Snow Globe, Clay?” He met her gaze straight on, her green eyes so inviting. “If it’s a drink, no. If purple snow globe is a secret code word for something naughty, I’m game.”

This novella is the prequel to Night After Night, which is a full-length novel that will release on April 18th. It leads us into what we can expect, some really hot encounters between Julia and Clay, and I expect the unraveling of some issues. I am looking forward to Night After Night for more erotic sex between Julia and Clay, plus I am curious as to how they will solve their biggest dilemma ( I am not going to give this one away).
