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…
Each book in the Lick series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Book #1 Only for a Night
Book #2 Only For Your Touch
Book #3 Only For You
Only For You is the third and final story in the Lick series and it's the story of Killian and Gabriella. Killian is one third of a hot Irish trio of friends and former mobsters who have gone legitimate and now own the hottest aphrodisiac club in Boston, aptly named Lick.
Five years ago, he was betrayed by the love of his life and was sent to jail for two years. Jail was especially horrible for Killian, who was thrown into solitaire for almost 2 years and is now a scarred man, afraid of enclosed places and bearing the scars of his incarceration, figuratively and literally. He has vowed to never forgive her.
Gabriella turned the police on Killian five years ago to save his life. He was walking into an ambush despite her warning and she was terrified he'd be killed. After trying to visit him and communicate with him numerous times, she gave up and moved across the country to try to put Killian and the love she lost behind her and start a new life. Then she comes to visit her uncle...
Only For You is the story of these two lost souls told beautifully as ever by Naima Simone. It's a short story but she can do magic in a small period of time. Her ability to weave her words to make you feel Killian's rage and sorrow, Gabriella's desperation and regret and the love they both feel for each other that will never die is a gift and we are all lucky to receive it.
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.
