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.
“Beautiful things should be savored, Livy, not rushed.”
Holy crap! So I thought I had it and I did BUT there was one twist I was not ready for and OMG was I excited about it. It was totally off the wall and not what I was thinking as it is not the norm for this type of book. Again, Jodi has created a sexy beast that will make any woman lose control. M is a whole new game, a twist on the Alpha male and oh my, is he more than one night.
“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”
Livy is plain and straight edged. A girl at home in a pair of converses and jeans, Livy is surviving. Demons of the past stunt her spiritual growth. Then one day it all changes. M walks into her life, plan and straight bends into a world of color and promise.
“If I ever make you a promise, Livy, I’ll keep it… I’ll never do anything less than worship you.”
I never thought that the world of The Lord could be topped. I fell in love with the This Man Series. Jodi’s writing is intriguing and wraps you up, tight, in a word blanket. I snuggled up with One Night: Promised because I knew that it would be good but I had no clue just how good one night could be. After the jaw dropping end to Promised, I am longing for the warmth of a Jodi Ellen Malpas word blanket.
