New Release: First Night & Ever After by Lauren Blakely. Review by Amber.

A sexy short story of handcuffs, lace and one hot night in a bar featuring supporting characters from the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling novels TROPHY HUSBAND and PLAYING WITH HER HEART.
Fiery bartender Julia Bell has been hit on by her fair share of customers and has never so much as batted an eye in response. After all, she wants a man who can claim her body AND captivate her mind. Enter Clay Nichols, the entertainment lawyer with a dirty mind and a mouth to match. Their connection is off the charts hot, but can it last beyond the first night?
What happens after the happy ending? Bestselling author Lauren Blakely gives readers a glimpse of the happily ever afters for her popular romantic couples – Kat and Bryan from Caught Up In Us, Chris and McKenna from Trophy Husband, Jill and Davis from Playing With Her Heart, and Jane and Matthew from Far Too Tempting.

Amber's Review:

Ok. I have to say that I absolutely LOVE Lauren Blakely!! I was sent this novella in exchange for a review and I am so glad because as with everything I've read from her, her stories just keep getting better! First Night is a total tease, but in the best possible way!! I knew when we were introduced to Clay in Playing With Her Heart that he had to have a great story and wow what a great follow up this is! I love when Lauren weaves characters from her various books and we get more peeks into their lives! This story pairs Clay and Julia, sister to McKenna who we first meet in Trophy Husband. Julia is spitfire and just the right match to Clay and exactly what he's looking for; while Clay is the complete package that Julia has been seeking. The pairing is flirty, sexy and totally combustible in the most amazing way!! You definitely need to read how this pair begins their journey. And I can’t wait to read what comes next with them!

The remainder of the novella is a collection of extended happily ever after moments for several of the Blakely Couples! So sweet, so fun, so sexy! Loved them all!! So come along to see Bryan and Kat, Jill and Davis and Chris and McKenna in each of their Ever Afters!

This is a fast, fun, sexy read and every Blakely fan needs to consider a Must Read!
