FIRSTNIGHTbyLaurenBlakelyFeb26reveal

An erotic novella from the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…

It was only supposed to be one night…

When the sinfully handsome man walks into her bar in San Francisco, Julia Bell simply wants a break from the troubles that keep chasing her. That escape comes in the form of sexy, confident and commanding Clay Nichols, who captivates her mind AND turns her inside out with pleasure. The attraction is electric and they share one scorchingly hot night together, but they also discover there is more than just off-the-charts chemistry; the connection between them runs deep. Clay never thought he’d return to New York with this woman still on his mind. But he can’t get her out of his system, and he needs more of her…He wants more than just the first night…

*This is a prequel novella to the erotic romance NIGHT AFTER NIGHT.*

NIGHTAFTERNIGHTbyLaurenBlakelyFeb26reveal

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, her every move is watched, 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?

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…

5 dirty talking stars

HOT! HOT! And more HOT! Wow, these books, are awesome! Lauren made THE EROTICA happen and with the best couple ever: Clay and Julia. They were perfect for each other since the moment they set eyes on each other, and don’t make me tell you how steamy was that first night. The books has both points of view, so there is no chance you can lose any thought from Clay and Julia, and most important, every feeling. The trilogy is amazing. You fall in love with them in the first novella “First Night” and when you are finishing the last book of their adventure, “One More Night”, you will not be able to contain the feelings for both of them.

The story, the drama, the romance, the erotism in these books is simply extraordinary. Julia’s secrets and Clay’s pride, are their first things that they have to struggle with, but when they pass through these, they both solved together the troubles her ex-boyfriend left her with, but before and after that happens, their love, and of course, their desire for each other, are growing bigger and bigger, until there is a moment they can’t live without the other.

I loved Julia. She isn’t just sexy as hell, because yes, i have a huge girl crush on her, but she is also confident, independent, intelligent, and feisty. Her level of stubbornness is so high, that she can’t let anyone help her, not even the people that loves her. Until Clay. I loved her romantic moments with Clay, when she was vulnerable, when she was turned on, and of course, when she was funny.

And Clay, oh my Clay, this man is THE alpha male with the dirtiest of the mouths. He knows what he likes and goes for it, specially in sex. He had his issues, had his pride, but LOVE can fix anything. I loved his thoughts about Julia when he wasn’t with her, and what he said and did when he was with her. There were two or three moments in the books, when I wanted to kill him, “¿why did he do that?”, I kept thinking, but he made himself right later, and we, me and Julia, were very happy and very much in love with him at the end. This man is so special, in every way, that I just won’t be able to forget about him, and he is now in my top ten of book boyfriends.

I loved every book of the series, and there are very exciting moments in every one of them, but the end of the third book, after all the drama, is PERFECTION!!

Favorite Quotes:

First night: “You will feel me for days, gorgeous”

Night after night: “I’m crazy about you, but right now I’m going to fuck you like I hate you. I need to fuck you angrily but don’t forget this: I’m crazy for you”

After this night: “You dirty girl with a dirty mouth”, he said, with utter appreciation for the way she talked. “I am, and you love it”

One more night: “I’m going to make love to you like this now, and a year from now, and in ten years, and twenty”.

THE RED YEARS (Books 1 to 4)

The-SirenNotorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she’s sure it’ll be her breakout book… if it ever sees the light of day.

Zachary Easton holds Nora’s fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it’s no deal.

Nora’s grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining… and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him… or returning to his bed?

Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple

d5665-amazon2the-angel

No safe word can protect the heart

Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren—whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin—is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora’s lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury.

Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion. Young, inexperienced and angelically beautiful, Michael has become Nora’s protégé, and this summer with Griffin is going to be his training, where the hazing never ends.

But while her flesh is willing, Nora’s mind is wandering. To thoughts of Søren, her master, under investigation by a journalist with an ax to grind. And to another man from Nora’s past, whose hold on her is less bruising, but whose secrets are no less painful. It’s a summer that will prove the old adage: love hurts

Two worlds of wealth and passion call to Nora Sutherlin and, whichever one she chooses, it will be the hardest decision she will ever have to make. Unless someone makes it for her…

Wes Railey is the object of Nora’s tamest yet most maddening fantasies, and the one man she can’t forget. He’s young. He’s wonderful. He’s also thoroughbred royalty and, reuniting with him in Kentucky, she’s in his world now. But this infamous New York dominatrix is no simpering Southern belle, and Nora’s dream of fitting into Wesley’s world is perpetually at odds with the relentlessly seductive pull of Soren–her owner, her lover, the forever she cannot have. At least, not completely.

Meanwhile Nora’s associate Kingsley Edge is only too happy to take her place at Soren’s feet during her hiatus. Soren is the only man Kingsley has ever loved, and their dark, shared history has forged a bond that neither the years–nor Soren’s love for Nora–can break. But a new threat from an old adversary is forcing Kingsley to confront the past, reminding him that he must keep his friends close, and his enemies closer

The final book in The Original Sinners Series – The Red Years.

There’s punishment-and then there’s vengeance.

Nora Sutherlin is being held, bound and naked. Under different circumstances, she would enjoy the situation immensely, but her captor isn’t interested in play. Or pity.

As the reality of her impending peril unfolds, Nora becomes Scheherazade, buying each hour of her life with stories-sensual tales of Søren, Kingsley and Wesley, each of whom has tempted and tested and tortured her in his own way. This, Nora realizes, is her life: nothing so simple, so vanilla, as a mere love triangle for her. It’s a knot in a silken cord, a tangled mass of longings of the body and the heart and the mind. And it may unravel at any moment.

But in Nora’s world, no one is ever truly powerless-a cadre of her friends, protectors and lovers stands ready to do anything to save her, even when the only certainty seems to be sacrifice and heartbreak

THE WHITE YEARS (Books 5 to 8)

 

the-saintIn the beginning, there was him.

Gutsy, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn’t want to break. She’s sick of her mother’s zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she’ll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Søren Stearns and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Suddenly, daily Mass seems like a reward, and her punishment is the ache she feels when they’re apart. He is intelligent and insightful and he seems to know her intimately at her very core. Eleanor is consumed—and even she knows that can’t be right.

But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. She vows to repay him with complete obedience…and a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets.

Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin

Cunning. Sex. Pure nerve. Only this unholy threesome can raise him to his rightful place as a rule of Manhattan’s king kingdom.

Bouncing from bed to bed on the Upper East Side, Kingsley Edge is brilliant, beautiful and utterly debauched. No carnal act of chemical compound can relieve his self-destructive heartache—only Søren, the one person he loves without limit or regret. A man he can never have, but in whose hands Kingsley is reborn to attain even greater heights of sin.

Kingsley’s plan to open the ultimate BDSM club—a dungeon playground for New York’s A-list—becomes his obsession. His expertise in domination can’t subdue the one man who wants to stop him. The enigmatic Reverend Fuller won’t rest until King’s dream is destroyed, and so the battle lines are set; it’s one man’s sacred mission against another’s

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

Nights With Him -Full Wrap

Message from Lauren:

The Seductive Nights erotic romance series continues with a new installment starring a new couple later this fall! While the first four books in the series followed Julia and Clay, the next two 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 will be releasing a free prequel novella called ONE NIGHT WITH HER on October 21 about the night they meet and the mind-blowing encounter they have in a New York City hotel. The novel itself will release on Nov. 11. NIGHTS WITH HIM is available to preorder on iBooks, with an Amazon preorder to go up about three weeks before the novel’s release.

BOOK & AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

ugly-love_cover_final

532531489pizapw1403557288

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.

Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.

Promises get broken.

Rules get shattered.

Love gets ugly.

5 stars

Colleen Hoover did it again! She gave me a huge book hangover with Maybe Someday and now she’s done it again with Ugly Love. Everything about this book is amazing, Miles, Tate, his past, their present, how it all starts, and most of all, how it ends. This book has the perfect amount of everything, funny moments, sexy moments, sad moments, and romantic moments. I seriously love this book, but my feelings were all messed up while reading this book. I love how Colleen writes her characters’ emotions in a way that makes me feel them as they were my own.

Tate is smart and independent. I felt everything she felt when she met Miles, when they started their “thing” and when she fell in love with him. Miles is so sexy, quiet and very mysterious. When he smiled, i could see his smile in my mind. The way he cared about Tate, how he tried to spend time with her, made me fall for him so hard!. Oh. My. God. The. Sex. It was HOT, the first time was so intense, and it got better with every time they were together.

The secondary characters are so cool. Cap is the funniest, sweetest and of course, wisest old man in the world. Tate’s brother, Corbin, is so protective and has great and very hot friends.

Audiobook review: The narrators, Grace Grant and Deacon Lee, have perfect voices for the characters. I loved how i could hear the smile in Deacon’s voice when Miles was happy, and when he was sad, my heart was aching for all the sadness in his voice. Grace’s voice is perfect for Tate, specially when she was being playful. The narration of the sex scenes is so hot! I usually don’t blush, but this audiobook did it!

Favorite quotes:

“I don’t care if you drink my juice, Tate”

“The” He pulls out, the repeats his movement again. “Best” Again “Thing” Again “I’ve” Again “Ever” Again “Felt”

“I like kissing you, Tate”

“Miles smiles. That rhymes”

“I want to, Tate. I want to love you so much it fucking hurts”

Colleen Hoover’s love for writing began in 1985 when she was five years old. Her first story was titled “Mystery Bob” and was a huge hit with her mother, who was really good at faking interest.
Colleen continued to write short stories for friends and family until December of 2011, when she decided to write a long story she titled, “Slammed.” She self-published SLAMMED to Amazon in January, 2012 and it hit the NYT’s bestsellers list in May, 2012. She has since signed with Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, and now has six NYT’s bestsellers. Colleen prefers to be called a writer, as the term “author” still terrifies her and makes this feel like a job with expectations. She doesn’t work well under pressure and hopes writing will always remain fun and exciting.
Colleen’s newest novel, UGLY LOVE, releases August 5th, 2014. She is currently working on a new novel, CONFESS, which she is writing as fast as she can before she wakes up from this crazy dream.

You can follow Colleen on Instagram and Twitter @colleenhoover. You can also find her on her blog at http://www.colleenhoover.com where she holds a daily book-a-day giveaway, or on her very active Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/authorcolleenhoover where she loves to give away more free stuff when her husband isn’t looking.

Colleen also wants the world to know that writing short biographies in third person is incredibly awkward.
