The copy I recieved had a prequel. Called The First Night. I really don't know why this just wasn't the first couple of chapters in Night After Night, but whatever...the whole thing with novellas bother me if you are just going to write 3 parts anyways... But I digress.
Clay is a lawyer. He likes the control in the bedroom. He hates liars, due to his ex-gf being a crack addict. or something.
Julia is a bartender. She likes control in the bedroom, but she also likes giving up control. She has a big secret. She also carries handcuffs in her purse. Although this seems to conflict the whole " I haven't had sex in a year" line---see:liar.
Can you see where the plot is going? It didn't get there in this installment. I assume that it will be talked about in the 3rd installment, called After this Night.
They both like the hot sex. While it wasn't the hottest, it definitely wasn't tame. I mean, I did read it in one sitting. The turn-off was some of the dirty talk though. I mean, I get your coming and you can't come until she comes, but you wont' let her come until you say its okay to come. made me not want to come.
The characters, I think this is the first time where I actually liked the male more. And I wish it was in his POV for the majority. I felt for him. He didn't want to have liars in his life, and now he is getting into one big one. He just came off as a good guy.
For a quick, steamy wanna forget about responsibilities pick up this book. I think it would be great for a beach read.
