Overview

It’s been five years since I’ve seen her.

Five years since Gabriella James damn near destroyed me with her betrayal, sending me to hell in a cage.

I’ve crawled free, escaped the mob, opened a night club, and continue to battle my demons through underground fighting and sex. But now Gabriella’s back, begging for absolution, wanting my forgiveness. All I want is what she’s denied me for all these years—her body.

Sex. That’s all we’ll ever have.

Because Gabriella is still keeping secrets. I see it in her eyes.

I don’t trust her, and I’ll never forgive her betrayal.

But that won’t stop me from taking her.

Over…and over…and over…

Naima Simone's love of romance was first stirred by Johanna Lindsey, Sandra Brown, and Linda Howard many years ago. Well, not that many. She is only eighteen...ish. Though her first attempt at a romance novel starring Ralph Tresvant from New Edition never saw the light of day, her love of romance, reading, and writing has endured. Published since 2009, she spends her days—and nights—creating stories of unique men and women who experience the first bites of desire, the dizzying heights of passion, and the tender, healing heat of love.

She is wife to Superman, or his non-Kryptonian, less bulletproof equivalent, and mother to the most awesome kids ever. They all live in perfect, sometimes domestically challenged bliss in the southern United States.

This is the third book in the Lick series. It's hot, hot, hot!! Gabriella and Killian have a history where one event changed the course of their lives. Now five years later they're different people, but fate has given them a second chance. Can Killian ever forgive Gabreilla? Can Killian let go of the anger/pain that forces him to fight? Gabriella always brought out a different side in Killian. They have some things to work through, but can they move past it? The epilogue in this one was a beautiful way to end this series because it shows you how far Killian, Sasha, and Rion have come from their mob days. It shows you the beautiful future that's just waiting for them.

Story of Revenge and Redemption This is the last book in the Lick Series and boy what an emotional and wild 2nd chance romance story it is. Only For You is the story of Killian and Gabriella. It’s been five years since Gabriella James last saw Killian. There is so much hate coming from him toward her. She wanted to protect him but in the end, he ended up in jail because of her. Killian left his past life with the mafia and Gabriella behind him. He bettered his life and became part owner of “Lick” along with his friends which is this happening aphrodisiac bar and started his life anew, trying to forget the love of his life and the betrayal she did to him. Only when she came back into his life and his bar, did all that pain and betrayal come back into him again when he saw her. Gabriella wants his forgiveness but all he has on his mind is revenge for what he suffered. Even knowing this, Gabriella still wants him. This is an intense and deep read filled with angst, pain, love, hot and sexual tension, passion and some BDSM. Oh my! I loved the storyline and the flow of the book. I felt it was a bit short but overall the story was good. I loved the ending of the Lick series and hope maybe we get to see the characters again. My Rating: 4.3 stars ***** "I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

3.5**** Wow! Grab a fan, cool rag, cold shower when reading this story! Gabby and Killian are smoking hot and have a very nice, long, hot, sexy encounter. Gabby and Killian immediately picked up where they left off in their past. Killian's demons were so dark and strong. Gabby was his light in the past as well as in the present. He harbored great fury towards her and she was filled with so much regret. I am glad they were able to find their way back to one another. I only wish there were a little more to their relationship. The epilogue is beyond sweet and loving. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

Only For You by Naima Simone is the final book in the Lick series and revolves around Killian. Gabby and Killian meet up again with Gabby asking for his forgiveness. Killian’s been holding on to her betrayal for a while, so it won’t be easy. Thankfully, Gabby knows want Killian wants and plans to get the absolution in the one way she knows how. What can I say about Killian? I really wanted to give him a hug, but I doubt that would fly with him unless you’re Gabby. Gabby and Kilian have a complicated relationship. They used to be in a relationship with each other, but Gabby did something that landed Killian in prison. We find out Gabby’s reasons and I can sympathize with her. She was young and scared, so the choice she chose was instant and the only one that came to her. Killian is the not the same person, but neither is Gabby. They’ve both made mistakes and each did some growing, but can Killian ever forgive Gabby? Only For You is a quick read full of steamy moments, secrets, and starting over. This was a very enjoyable second chance romance and if you enjoy those types of books, I would highly recommend this one.

Holy hell! Best book of the Lick Series by far. I devoured this book in one sitting. Keep a spare pair of panties handy. This is the story of Killian, who with Rion and Sasha own the club known as Lick. After leaving the Irish mob and making their way into a legit business Rion and Sasha have found love. Killian has found himself in underground fights and darkness, trying to beat back the demons that haunt him from spending two years in jail and for what? Deep down his pain has come from losing Gabriella and his anger at her betrayal of him. She disappears for 5 years after he goes to jail and has returned for her Uncle's birthday. He owns the bar she worked at and where the boys used to frequent. Killian and Gabby were the match, their world revolved around each other. The circumstances leading to his arrest you have to read, to get the full picture and hear her story and his. Coming back to Boston her cousins bring her to the bar knowing the guys own it, Killian is just returning to the bar from an underground fight and Sasha comes in to his office to point her out on the security camera. Killian is, well... you have to know him. He's hardened, his time spent in jail changed him and he just despises Gabby. After trying to get to the restroom, she comes face to face with Killian and he takes her into a private room. She tries to apologize, he's having none of it and then she offers up herself. Her body for him to take out his anger on. So he takes her upstairs to a private play room. Gabby never got over Killian. Despite her new life in LA and the opening of her own bar soon, she belongs to him. Naima outdid herself in the steam arena in this story. Have a spare pair of panties for this book because it's smokes. There's some mild BD and toy play in here but it's well done and sizzles. As the evening progresses Killian softens a little, and asks her some things that he's been wanting to know and Gabby tells him, figuring she has nothing to lose at this point. Her fear of rejection is so strong it's palpable, reaching right up out of the pages. He gets his answers, she gets a couple of her own and she leaves. Leave it to his two best friends to kick his behind the next day having heard the full story and knowing what happened because they were there, but they can't believe he's letting her go. The only thing in his life that ever made him happy. Read the book.... no more story from me on this one. No spoilers. This was by far the best of the series and the deepest emotionally. It's gut wrenching and painful. Killian and Gabby were raw and honest. The agony of his jail time and their separation loops the storyline together. It's also a beautiful love story that started long ago with Killian and Gabby. I loved all three books but this one was on an entirely different level. **advanced reader copy from Net Galley and Entangled in exchange for a fair review**

OMG! Scorching, Hot, Romance that left me breathlessly begging for more. You will not be able to put this down once you read the first few paragraphs. On the edge of a lust filled fantasy that left me sleep deprived but oh so satisfied. With a hot sexy alpha that indulges in all of his every secret desire for his one and only true love. Killian Vincent is the perfect alpha, that leaves you reeling as his dominance, power and unexpected tenderness creates the ideal mixture in this masterful, deeply sensual read with characters I fell in love with from the moment they walked onto the page. Gabriella James had owned his heart until she betrayed him and damn near destroyed him five years ago by ratting him out to the police. She had loved Killian from the first time she laid eyes on him and had never stopped. But that didn't matter to the man that hated her now. She had been gone for five years, but back in town on a girls night out, her curiosity had gotten the better of her and she just want to get a glimpse of him, to explain and apologize for what she did. But just the sight of him and her body had that ingrained reaction to just the hint of him, the hope of him, the impact of him. Desire, Arousal and Need for him and the eroticism she hadn't had before or since him. Will Killian listen and accept Gabriella's apology? Will Killian accept Gabriella's offers of her body for one night to make amends for her betrayal? You will not want to miss the consequences of that offer. Sinfully sexy and erotically beautiful Killian and Gabriella's story will leave you breathlessly begging for more! I voluntarily requested and received a ARC through NetGalley and voluntarily agreed to post a honest review.

This book was a fabulous read. I had read another in this series before and it was great too. I was so looking forward to this one! Killian is HOT! As one of the three owners of LICK, an aphrodisiac bar and a very hot place, we get his story in this book. Killian is angry. Angry at Gabby for the fact she was the reason he landed in prison. Now Gabby is back and he has revenge on his mind but she still wants him. Intense and so spicy with a touch of light bdsm! I love this series! I just wish there was more!!!!!!!! A standalone read, but so worth getting the other books too! * copy received for review purposes and my honest opinion

Naima Simone's Only for You is a quick, hot read where love gets a second chance. She continues her spicy The Lick series with this third addition. Killain is part owner of the aphrodisiac club Lick in Boston with his two friends Rion and Sasha. (Both are the heroes in the prior two books.) He and Gabriella were in love when she betrayed him to the police five years ago, which led to his arrest and two year prison sentence. Killain’s time in prison was brutal, and he’s never forgiven Gabriella. He doesn't realize she had a very good reason to do what she did, and she never imagined doing so would lead to such harsh consequences. She disappeared to Los Angeles after the arrest, but she has returned to Boston for her uncle's birthday and goes to Lick knowing - and hoping - she might see Killian. She does see him, and he is NOT happy to see her. He's still very hurt and angry over her betrayal, but somewhere under all that bitterness, he also still loves her and is attracted to her. He can't trust her, wants answers and possibly a little revenge. Gabriella has never stopped loving Killian and basically offers herself to him as a sacrificial lamb. He can use her for one night. He accepts, and the two former lovers have a super hot night together, which has the unintended consequences of igniting their love and possibly uncovering the truth of what happened years ago. But is it enough to heal Killian’s deep and painful wounds? Only for You is a super hot read with an angsty, nice second chance at love, and it is an easy recommend. ARC provided by publisher via Netgalley, but no one made me write this review and my opinions are honest and my own.

Only for You is the third story in the Lick series, a steamy set of novellas with heroes who are co-owners of an aphrodisiac club. Every story so far has been a delightfully sexy read and I'm happy to say that this one follows well in the footsteps of the previous ones, providing a second chance romance with a dose of redemption and forgiveness. Killian is still haunted by the demons of his time in prison, the two years where he was locked up and especially the 30 days of solitary confinement that started his tenure continuing to give him nightmares and panic attacks. He takes out his anger and frustration in illegal fighting and meaningless sexual encounters. When Gabriella shows up at Lick, he wants to know why. It's because of her that he ended up in jail in the first place. As a mob enforcer for the O'Bannon family, she'd known what she was getting into when she entered a relationship with him, but he never thought she'd betray him to the police. Gabriella doesn't know why she's come to Lick, though she can't deny that she's always wondered how Killian fared after she saved his life from an act of mob betrayal, even if it did get him sent to prison. When he refused to see her after his arrest, she left the city, heartbroken but sure that she'd done the right thing. Back in town to see her uncle, she's moved on with her life but when her cousins take her to Lick, she knows he's a part owner with his longtime friends. When they meet face to face, it's clear that he's never going to forgive her for her part in what happened to him. So she offers him herself as atonement. One night where he can use her any way he wants, punish her for how things ended between them. Killian takes her up on that offer, leading her right back into the dirty sex that characterized their relationship from the start. But now that they've gotten under each other's skin again, will they be able to let go? This is a great second chance/reunion romance novella with lots of emotional heat. Things aren't quite as cut and dried as Killian and Gabriella think they are, and it's not long before they have to delve into the past and discover that what they thought had happened wasn't all true. With new knowledge shared, they have a chance to start the healing process. They can't deny that the sexual attraction that brought them together in the first place is still strong, and they share some steamy scenes in a private room of the club. This story doesn't have the more voyeuristic or menage scenes of the previous books in the series, sticking to the heat between Gabriella and Killian alone but it's more than enough to keep the story moving at a steamy pace. Their happy ending is well deserved. I've thoroughly enjoyed every book in the series, and would love to see more set in the Lick club!

Wow, just wow....very sexy and intense novel that begins with Gabby going to Killian's bar after not seeing him for five years....and those years were not kind to Killian. Their separation began with Killian's arrest after Gabby turned him in to the police. Killian will never forgive her for what she did and is filled with anger that continues to fester. Then Gabby offers herself to Killian....what follows is a very intense, and more than a bit naughty, night of sex. This novel is not for the easily offended or that don't want to read beyond a vanilla encounter, but if you'd like more spice, you have found it in this novel. This is very hot and sexy, but also has a compelling back story that had me rooting for the characters. Fans of the genre will love this book. While it is part of a series, this is a stand alone novel.

Smoking This is third book in the Lick series and I think the best and the most anguish for Killian and Gabriella. Killian trying to move on from being sent to jail for 2 years by the one of the people he's trusted the most, Gabby, and Gabriella for sending him there and a few secrets that they are each still keeping. When Gabriella offers her body for one more night as punishment and the both move on? Will they get answers? Naima Simone did it again and wrote a great book that I could not put down and was marvelous. Getting to see Rion and Sasha also helped. I highly recommend this book.

Only For You is book three in The Lick series by Naima Simone. I fell in love with this series with the first book. Each book features one of the three owners of the Boston Bar, Lick. Somehow, I think this is the most intense of the three books. It grabbed me right from the beginning and I could not put it down. The three owners of Lick fought their way out of the Boston mob scene and started a legitimate business, an Aphrodisiac bar. Downstairs is the bar area but upstairs, called The Loft, is where customers can safely explore their wildest fantasies. In this book we meet Killian Vincent. His story is perhaps the worst of the three. He had been in love for two years with Gabriella James. She was his life other than his two best friends, Rion and Sasha. But five years ago, the woman he loved, the woman he worshipped, ratted him out to the police. Because of her, he spent two years in prison. Because of her he can’t stand to be in a small, enclosed space. Because of her he fights in underground fight clubs just to feel the pain to remind himself he is still alive. Gabriella escaped to Los Angeles five years ago after everything happened. She is back in Boston for her Uncle’s eightieth birthday. She went to Lick with her two friends with the hope that she might at least see Killian. Would he talk to her, give her a chance to explain, to apologize? Or would he throw her out? When Gabby and Killian face each other in his office, Gabby offers herself to him, just for one night, to do with as he pleases. For him to use her body in any way he wants, to punish her for what happened. But when it’s over, will they be able to walk away? Or will they finally get each other out of their systems and get the closure they need? This is a short, very sexy story. Killian is perhaps the most broken of the three. He paid the biggest price for the life they all led. In the few hours they spend together in The Loft, everything is revealed and emotions are bared. But can Killian ever really forgive Gabby and trust her again? There is a perfect epilogue that offers closure with all three couples. I loved this series and am so glad I found it.
