One Night: Denied by Jodi Ellen Malpas
The passion that burned between Livy and Miller in One Night: Promised may end up destroying them both in this new novel of overwhelming desire and shocking discoveries…
He’s amazingly wealthy, sinfully gorgeous, and can bring her to heights of pleasure she’s never before known. For Livy, there’s no turning back. She’s determined to be the light in Miller Hart’s dark world. Yet this new life comes with a steep price…
Miller knows that the power he possesses hasn’t come without sacrifices-but he won’t let Livy be one of them. Though he wants nothing more than to have her in every way, his first duty is to protect her at all costs…from his sins, his enemies, and especially himself.
But as their insatiable affair intensifies, the two attract the attention of an obsessive-and dangerous-third party. Discovering new revelations about Miller that rock her to the core, Livy will have to decide whether he’s ruined beyond repair. And he must face his fear that in order to save her, he may have to lose her after all…
This is the second installment in the One Night series featuring Livy and Miller. This installment is not as intense and suspenseful as the first…well until the end, which you will need to read and see!! The back and forth between Livy and Miller gets to be much but when they’re together it’s molten! They smolder and taste and do their ‘thing’. I love how JEM keeps us guessing with all of Miller’s vagueness when answering questions. I feel the pull between Livy and Miller as well as the fireworks. How sensual JEM makes their connections is powerfully beautiful. There’s a cliffhanger that has me gritting my teeth and dying for the next installment (which isn’t until February). I absolutely adore Livy’s Nan. She’s spunky and her sass is sparky. Gregory (Livy’s best friend) is protective and their “episode”…well let’s just say I thought that would happen 😉. The dialogue brings life to the story and flows smoothly between the characters. I found nothing lacking in the plot, again I just thought the back and forth was quite frequent although as a whole it sparked the intensity that much further and kept me wondering. Give this a try and find your next book crush!! Rating: 4.5 stars
I’m not quite sure where to begin as my mind, my heart, and my soul are still reeling from One Night Denied. JEM has an incredible talent for writing a beautiful yet tormented man….be it Jesse Ward, or in this case…Miller Hart, who, by the way, will have your emotions running the gamut like no other. You will be infuriated, and so angry with him one minute, and the next…..you’ll want to jump in the pages and be the one to give him his “thing” Miller’s words will melt your soul…………….
~ “Let me taste you.”
~ “She makes my heart quicken and my senses slow.”
~ “I beg you to love me forever.”
~ “That’s how I know you’re close by. I don’t need to be able to see you. I feel you, and when we physically touch, those fireworks explode. They make me dizzy. They’re beautiful, bright, and consuming.”
~ “You fill my dark world with light and my hollow heart with feelings.”
And there is more……so much more, to captivate you, as you delve deeper and deeper into Miller and Livy’s world. A bit of cloak and dagger, secrets revealed/exposed, the beautifully haunting love that is Miller and Livy.
Read. This. Book. And I promise you, you will be as captivated as I am, and Miller Hart will rocket to the top of your book boyfriend list, as well as an ending that will leave you breathless and desperate for more. A must read in another brilliant series.
