Peek Inside Only For A Night

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…

This was short but very sexy. Rion is the bad boy that fell for the good girl as teens. He let her go and now she's back. She wants to feel free and his sex club and him are just what the doctor ordered. They share a great connection and even better intimacy. Her boundaries are tested. Only at the e ...more

Entangled Publishing has released a new imprint called Scorched. It promises to have all the heat level of their Brazen line, but with fewer boundaries (sexually speaking). If this first book, one of the four released on opening day ( so to speak) is any indication, they’ve definitely let down their ...more

Only for a Night is the first book and a novella in Naima Simone's new Lick series. Naima is new to me as an author, but I really liked this book. I was first drawn to the book because of the cover. Yes, yes, I judged this book by the cover and knew I had to read it. After reading the blurb, I knew ...more

Naima Simone é atualmente uma das minhas autoras favoritas de literatura erótica. Com algumas ressalvas, gostei de tudo que já li dela, e Only for a night, o primeiro livro da série Lick, não foi uma exceção.

*** Generously gifted an ARC by Netgalley, Entanglement Publushing, and Naima Simone in exchange for honest review.***

Rion Ward never thought he was worthy of anyone's love, especially not from good girl Harper Shaw, but that's exactly what happened. Harper saw beyond the bad boy exterior Rion carri ...more

By Amélie January 06, 2020

Probably the smuttiest book I've ever read.

This was very much outside of my comfort zone, and yet I really enjoyed it! My only complaint is that the ending felt rushed, but considering how short this is, I can't really hold it against the author. ...more

By Taryn May 14, 2019

A seriously spicy second-chance romance where the hero is the owner of an aphrodisiac club. Even though he’s cut ties with the Irish mob, Rion has never believed he was good enough for Harper. But when she, now widowed, shows up at his place of business and says she wants him, he can’t say no—so he ...more

This is a different style than her other 2 books that I have previously read (Beauty and the Bachelor and The Millionaire makeover).I have to say I loved both of those.

Oh my this is a super HOT story, but more than that it's a great love story. Harper and Rion have known each other since they were kids but they came from different sides of the "tracks".

By Kenya April 10, 2018

The reviews talked about a big cliffhanger. I honestly thought it was a good end that kept you wanting more. I don't know if I would've qualified that as a blood-curdling cliffhanger.

Either way, it was short and sexy. Harper was a cool heroine. Rion was a good alpha. I enjoyed the sex scenes. Even t ...more

By Lubnaa (Romance Library) October 15, 2018

"She'd loved Rion with all the angsty passion of a teen and later with the hungry desire of a woman. Even when she'd tried to put him from her mind and heart, he'd just burrowed deeper."

Before I start this review, I would like to thank everyone from the OSRBC and Instagram for recommending Naima ...more

Okay so first of all, I didn't expect to cry while reading an erotica, but here we are. It took me an hour to read this and it was great. I don't know how it worked in 101 pages, but it did. There was SMUT and there was character building. Excited to read the other two books in the series and check ...more

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Naima Simone

USA Today bestselling author Naima Simone’s love of romance was first stirred by Johanna Lindsey and Linda Howard many years ago. Though her first attempt at writing a romance novel at age 11 never saw the light of day, her love of romance and writing has endured. Now, she spends her time creating stories of unique men and women who experience the dizzying heights of passion and the tender heat of love. She is wife to Superman—or his non-Kryptonian, less bullet proof equivalent—and mother to the most awesome kids ever. They all live in perfect, domestically-challenged bliss in the southern United States.
