4 my thing stars Jodi Ellen Malpas is a talented writer and a favorite author of mine Following a series like This Man seems like an impossible feat It was one of my favorites and Jesse Ward is on my top book boyfriends list Although I didn t love One Night Promised as much as I loved This Man , it was still a good read for me I feel like the rest of the series has loads of potential and will just get better from here.Livy Taylor is a 24 year old girl who works in a coffee shop and takes care of her elderly grandmother She doesn t go out much, she only has a few close friends and she never dates When a man enters the coffee shop, she is stunned by his good looks But it s than that There is something about this man M is taken by Livy as well Although he can t offer her much he is not available especially emotionally , he can offer her one night Livy is conflicted She doesn t do things like this At least not any Livy has put her past behind her She is a good girl A sweet girl She doesn t sleep with random men who can only offer her one night But there is something about t
What a story I have to say, this one surprised me I listened to the Audible version and the narration was fantastic I really liked Livy and Miller, in their own way My heart went out to Miller, despite his often cold mannerisms Livy was sweet and had the girl next door thing going for her, in spite of her past ghosts They were polar oppositesbut you know what they say about opposites attracting.Early on, it becomes evident that these two are headed for heartache, but they can t seem to resist the pull For quite a while, they seemed stuck in a perpetual tug of war battle On, then off Back and forth Repeat If I were to change anything, I would reduce the amount of time spent on this cycle It became a bit tedious after a while Believe me, we got it Finally, they seem to get their heads on straight and for a short period of time, things are marvelous Then, whammo Things get completely turned upside down I did not expect THAT twist I suspected some type of involvement by Miller, but I guess I pictured a less hands on role.I have to say that given Livy s past, I was pretty pissed with her reaction to Miller s secret Devastated, yes Heartbroken, yes Betrayed, definitely Cruel, hypocritical and demeaning, just wrong You d think she d have a little empathy for his situation and rela
I work hard I m emotionally and physically drained by it I want to have you to worship and indulge in when I m done One Night Promised was a OK read rather than impressive one I have to say that I adore JEM s writing and JESSE STILL tops in my book boyfriend list What about M Lemme seeCaptivating Not reallyGave me butterflies NahSexy Handsome Scrumptious Yes, that he wasMysterious TotallyAnd Olivia started well, kinda liked her character and last 10% made me wanna kick her, felt like she was acting childish she asked for it The story line, how did go Interesting Was alright as I was able to predict what they were both I recently read another fab story and One Night Promised was in that similar manner.Flat YesHot sex Off the charts YES HAWT Writing style Definitely lovedOriginality 50% maybe Well, that s me gonna peace out soonThe way the story ended, it will look like cliffy but I kinda hated Olivia so I really don t c
Jodi Ellen Malpas has outdone herself with this one There s so much to learn about this mysterious man Her writing has just gotten better, as you said polished I like the fact that her characters are different and she takes time to develop them We read so much and somet
Hope it s Jesse all over again. 4.5 sMiller aka M and Olivia meet when he goes into the coffee shop she works at and he orders coffee from her She s immediately smitten and gets nervous while making the coffee especially since she s only worked there for a few days And.Miller doesn t hesitate to let her know just how bad the coffee was I was bought and sold right from the note he left her I love JEM s This Man series and was hoping for something similar and I wasn t disappointed I couldn t put the book down Miller is a secretive man and it takes a bit before we get answers about him But some things are not too hard to figure out especially if you ve read the This Man series I really loved Miller s big flawit just made him that endearing Unfortunately, what may have caused it won t be a good thing I really wish we couldn t had his POV Olivia aka Livy was definitely thrown for a loop with this smooth talker but I have to give her credit for trying to hold her own Unfortunately, she runs off a lotbut with good reason These two are HOT And extremely frustrating because Miller will only do things a certain way Plus he focuses on certain things that don t make sense in the beginning but are sooo sweet later There is a lot of drama naturally A lot comes from Miller not divulging any personal information and just expecting Livy to trust him anyway I do love how Miller can t stay away from her A negative for me was not knowing what was going on with Mil
FIVE STARS BR with Mel, Dee, and Sharon When I first heard about this book, I was beyond excited Then I read a teaser to the first chapter and I swear I was counting down the days till August 5th Jodi Ellen Malpas has done it again She has created a story that has completely captivated me and she s created a book boyfriend that has gone straight to my top ten list I specifically took a vacation day so that I could just sit on my couch and read this from start to finish with minimal interruptions I FREAKING LOVED THIS STORY I m sitting here still just completely consumed by my thoughts over what I just finished reading last night.All I want to do is go back and start from the beginning and read it all over again From the moment M walks into the cafe Livy works at, and orders his Americano, I was intrigued He is completely delicious and Livy is a nervous wreck under his piercing gaze.Then he goes and leaves her a little note on a napkin and I m already developing a crush of my own on him
3.75 Stars This beautiful, pure girl has fallen in love with the big bad wolf This is the type story that you have to finish to decide whether you like it or not It is written in a way that you just keep going waiting for the something big to happen and see if your guesses are correct The writing is good, the pace is on the slow side and the minor characters are likable than the main ones.Livy has secrets and an emptiness that was left by her prostitute mother s abandonment She has recently started a job at the local coffee shop She lives with her Nan best character of the book seriously I would have preferred reading about Nan s relationship or Greg and Ben s Anyway, she meets Miller he propositions her Twenty four hours, no strings, no commitment and no feelings, except pleasure Livy hems and haws about Miller s proposition and decides to go for it because she finds Miller to be very mysterious and very attractive.The pair have a lot of hot sex but whenever Livy questions his career, or the woman on his
