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..

Jess’s Review:

5 STARS!!!!!

This was my first (but NOT last) book by Jodi Ellen Malpas. I started reading One Night Promised without knowing anything about it. I’m impressed! The story flowed, the characters had depth, emotion and passion. I enjoyed the build up, the tension as Livy faces her history, the temptation of M and the brutal reality that happily ever after is not promised.

M is brooding, dark and always in control of everything. He gives one night, more passion than any woman could ever ask for. That’s it. NOTHING more. Livy is sweet, taking on more than her share and steadily working away from her past. M is determined to have her. Livy is determined to have more than just one night. The secrets they share and hide will determine what the future brings. The only question is will it bring them together, complete in the light or tear them apart, keeping them alone in the dark.

This is a cliffhanger, but THANKFULLY book 2 was just released. I can’t wait to see what happens, how things are resolved and if there is a HEA at the end.
