[Review] One Night... Promised by Jodi Ellen Malpas



Livy notices him the moment he walks into the coffee shop. He's heart-stoppingly stunning, with a blue-eyed gaze so piercing she's almost too distracted to take his order. When he walks out the door, she thinks she'll never see him again. Then she finds the note he left on his napkin . . . signed M.

All he wants is one night to worship her. No feelings, no commitment, nothing but pleasure. Every defense mechanism Livy has adopted during her solitary life is at risk of being obliterated by this confounding man. He's obnoxious but well-mannered. He's a gentleman but aloof. He's passionate but emotionless. Yet the fascination is so powerful, Livy can't deny him... or herself.

M awakens something in Livy, something deep and addictive that she never knew existed -- and that she fears only he can satisfy. But she senses that behind the fast cars, fancy suits, and posh apartment, he's aching inside. To have him, body and soul, she'll have to brave his dark secrets. Delving into his world and breaking down his defenses become her obsession - an obsession that could shatter her heart beyond repair..

The One Night series has big boots to fill. I absolutely loved the This Man series and yes, it has taken me a hell of a long time to get around to this book, but I still got there.

Miller or Jesse? Hands down, Jesse.

This book was my 'currently reading' book for 2 months... I didn't gel with it like I'd hoped and there were only a few times that I liked 'M'. Something about him has me wanting to slap him. maybe that's due to my own personal life and being around demanding, particular people but because of that, I couldn't swoon over him like Jesse.

Livy... well, she's Livy. Probably just a blond version of me without the hooker history or expensive man.

the last 10% of this book had me reading till the end. That's where the story finally gripped me.

Nothing had me propping my eyelids open in the week to read it. Nothing before that had me wanting to jump straight back into it.

Because of the ending, I will read book 2, but I hope it has something more in it than one.
