Jodi Ellen Malpas

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
As a massive fan of Jodi's "This Man Series" I was very excited to read her highly anticipated new series "Promised, One Night. " I was also very apprehensive because "This Man Series" is my all time favourite series and I felt that Jodi was going to have a hard job creating a series just as amazing or better than "This Man"
I loved Promised, one night but unfortunately it wasn't as good as This Man. That's not to say that the book wasn't a 5* read because it was it just didn't grip me and knock me about like her previous series.
Jodi has managed to create a extremely passionate , sexy and emotionally draining read. Your be pulled straight in to follow 2 very complex characters on a very amazing journey.
Livy is a very nice girl, who has a bit if spunk. She's very sweet and easy to connect with. She's not had a great life and now lives with her Nana. (Nana is a amazing character. She is so funny and I think most people know somebody like her. Her relationship with George is funny and I loved reading about both of them)
Livy works in a Coffee shop, but also helps her boss cater high class events when she is needed. Livy is working when she meets a mysterious man called "M"
"M" is a very closed off character. He is a complete mystery. He's also very gentlemanly, obnoxious and emotionally switched off to everyone.
"M" feels a connection with Livy immediately, but as he doesn't do relationships he offered her all he knows....One night, 24hours of dirty, steamy sex with himself.
"M" is completely captivating and intriguing. Even though he's very closed off, you will instantly fall in love with him, and his compulsive ways. As he is so closed off, I loved finding out any information about him just to make the connection with him stronger.
The story starts off quite slowly, but I didn't think that was a bad thing. It gave you more time to really get inside the characters minds and understand them better. If the story had jumped straight in and was fast paced, I think you would of lost a lot if the story, background and " special moments" you need to feel connected with the story and characters. Jodi managed to create a perfect buildup, that explodes before your eyes.
The sex scenes were extremely hot and very full on. That will leave you hot and bothered.

The whole story was great. It will keep you guessing to the very end, but will also frustrate the hell out of you. Because this is only book 1 of a 3 part series.
Can't wait to continue with the story.
