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..
Bless Jodi Ellen Malpas for her fabulous stories! This book was one of a few all three of us has read ( that really says alot!). And we all agree that there´s practically nothing to bitch about. We absolutely loved One Night Promised. How could we not? We were stunned shitless.
We loved how we couldn´t predict where this story was heading. Everytime we thought we got it…BAM the story went in a different direction, shocking us more after each scene. OOOH yeah. We were sitting on the edge while reading about Livy and Miller´s relationship.
Livy´s character was grand. Whatever she did, or how she reacted was totally relatable. Everything she did….we couldn´t have done it better or worse.
M…or Miller was this mysterious guy at the beginning and turned into this sexy ass, drool worthy piece of flesh who even had manners! So…we got a guy who has the looks, money, AND who can use the right words at the right time * fanning faces* He had it…he nailed it ( or he rather nailed Livy..Lol….okay okay that was lame..but it had to be. Don´t judge. We´re putting our thoughts together on this one. ).
M is a gentleman? Oooooh yeah. M is passionate? Fuck us silly….he is. Miller has a way to him that make women want to drop to their knees and beg.
Not only the main characters were superb….the sub characters did their magic as well. Livy´s friend, her co-worker, her Granny….all made this story seem so warm and normal. But what wasn´t your everyday special was Livy´s past. Utterly devastating. And the worst of all….she actually put…Nope. We´re not going to spoil anything for you as we believe this is a book that needs to be read without us giving everything away.
The end chrushed our rotten hearts. Seriously….we were like:
„ Oh fuck no. Girl…you just did NOT do that.“
„ What the fuck is wrong with you?“
„ Jesus Christ…knock some fucking sense into these characters!!“
„ Who has time to hunt the author down?“
…and last but not least, our final word regarding the story was:
„ What?“ with pained expressions on our faces. Then….we fainted.
This book left alot of questions unanswered, which means we´ll hopefully get some answered in book 2.
What, in God´s name, made M do what he does?
What drove Livy to do what she did?
How does on woman come up with these things at all?
We´re in no mood to wait until November for book #2. That just sucks, big time!
Would we recommend this book?
We most certainly would.
Would we re-read this book?
