Review: First Night (Seductive Nights 0.5) by 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.*
ebook, 75 pages

I was searching Amazon for something new to read when I came across this. I figured since it was a novella and a prequel to the main story it would give me the chance to sample the writing and characters before committing to the whole story.
This delivered exactly what it promised. Two characters with strong personalities and strong opinions on what they like in the bedroom...or back room of the bar in this case. What makes this a little bit different than some others I have read in the genre is that both Julia and Clay have alpha personalities. It seriously can get annoying when one of the characters is always more dominant than the other. It makes the relationship seem less than equal in my eyes. And let's be honest, it makes the bedroom scenes dull and repetitive after a while.
I won't go in to detail as this story was short. It gave the perfect amount of teasing to peak my interest in reading the full length story of Julia and Clay. I have a couple of the other novella's in the series downloaded so I look forward to reading them before I take on the full length series.
