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.

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?
A sensual, emotionally-charged erotic romance from the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lauren Blakely...
But what we didn't really get in the novella was any background on either character. The bits of conversation we are given between Clay and Julia are on the lighter side. But during her time in New York, they really dig in and start to get to know each other on a deeper level. But that could be dangerous for any budding relationship that may be on the horizon for them. We learn Clay hates lies with a passion. And it just so happens, Julia is keeping one.
These two have so many obstacles in their path that it seems literally impossible for them to have any sort of sustainable relationship. Even if they overcome the whole lie issue, the geography still doesn't work in their favor. Do they have staying power despite the odds?
I can wait to find out where their journey will take them, in the next book, After This Night!
