Release Date: August 5, 2014
One Night: Promised is a new trilogy about Livy and M. Livy and M meet at her job as a Barista where their attraction to each other is instant and undeniable. M tries to stay away from her as she is too sweet but fate has other plans as their paths continue to cross. Not being able to stay away from her, M asks her for 24 hours where he can worship her in every way. When they are not fighting, Livy and M’s interactions are scorching.
Livy opens up and reveals painful secrets about her past but M remains a closed book, which causes problems between the two. There is a lot of angst throughout the book but supporting characters like Nan, George, and Gregory bring a humour and lightness to the story.
The reader needs to pay attention while reading to get the subtle clues that if picked up on will make the twists to the plot not quite so shocking. The book ends in a huge cliffhanger that will make waiting for the next book in the series painful. This book has left me with one heck of a book hangover and I will be waiting for the continuation of the story with One Night Denied coming out November 11.
Book Description from Amazon:
ONE NIGHT WILL NEVER BE ENOUGH . . .
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 . .
