Rion Ward fought hard to be free of the Irish mob life. Now, as the co-owner of Boston’s hottest aphrodisiac club, he’s traded crime for the ultimate sexual fantasy. But when the “good girl” from his past walks through Lick’s doors, he discovers that his unconsummated hunger for her never abated.
Widowed for two years from a man who felt that anything besides the missionary position was dirty, Harper Shaw is ready to move on. The first step to feeling alive again is sex. Hot, dirty, black-out-from-orgasm sex. And who better to provide it than the brooding, sexy, tatted bad boy-turned-man she’s known for years?
Rion, however, has one stipulation: He’ll be hers only for one night. One night to explore her every fantasy. One night to push her limits. One night to introduce her to a passion that makes both doubt if it will be enough…

Only for a Night, one of the first books to be published by Entangled's Scorched imprint so delivered on everything I was promised. This book was all types of steamy and then some.

3.5 stars. This was a new to me author and the first book in a new series. It's a quick and pretty dirty read.

ARC Review: Only For A Night (Lick) by Naima Simone
Only For a Night has a mellowness that I did not expect. Rion has that dangerous edge that makes him a great target for dirty fantasies and Harper is his forbidden fruit. There was a hardness to Rion that was his shield against the darkness that... ...more
The heat between Rion and Harper was scorching! The scenes with these two were hot. I loved everything about Rion from his past to who he became. I love the strength Harper had to walk into Lick and tell Rion what she wanted. I enjoyed these two and look forward to more. ...more
This was a pretty hot read. I really enjoy the chemistry between or hero and heroine. Full review coming ...more
The first two things I wanted to say when I finished ONLY FOR A NIGHT were: "WOW that was hot," and "That was really well written for erotic romance."
The former is very true, but it was the latter I wanted to address a bit more. Overall, I don't think it's fair to say something like, "That was re... ...more
Received an ARC through NetGalley.
