❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Review: Jodi Ellen Malpas' "One Night: Denied (One Night #2)"


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...

Review-Jo Rushton 

OMG!! What a fantastic and addictive series this is turning out to be. "One Night: Denied" was another amazing read. It made my head spin and my pulse rate rocket but I freaking loved it!! 

At the end of "Promised" I was left with a great big cliffhanger and I was dying to know what would happen next between Livy and Miller. Of course, I'm not going to tell you what does happen. That would just spoil the fun but what I will say is, that this story kept me hooked all the way through. It was jam packed full of heart stopping and edge of the seat moments. There were scenes that were gripping and intense and there were scenes that were hot and steamy, there was also a scene that made me cry. This book had it all going on. 

"That man lives in a dark place, Olivia. Darker than mine. He plays with the devil." 

Oh, how I love Miller Hart!! Even though, at times I wanted to punch him in the face!! lol. Finally, I felt that I was given the chance to truly know the mysterious M. I got to know about his past and the reasons behind some of his behavior and why he chose the life that he lead. Miller began to open up to Livy and it made me melt into a big puddle to see how much he trusted her and how far he had come.

"You're my habit, Olivia Taylor. You belong to me." 

As the story continued, it became clear just how vulnerable and damaged this man was. It made my heart hurt to see this side of him and to know of all the darkness that surrounded his life. I began to understand the reasons behind his action's with Livy. It did take me, the whole of the book, before I got to that point though. The first half of the story had me utterly confused. I didn't know or had any clue what was going on in this man's head but by the time I reached the final page, I can say that I had fallen one hundred percent in love with Miller Hart!! 

"We're more broken if we don't have each other. Let me put us back together again. 
I need you, Olivia. Desperately. You're making my world light." 

I continued to adore Livy, in fact I think. after reading this part of the series, I adored her even more! Livy was a woman in love and with that love emerged one hell of a passionate woman. She was determined to follow her heart. Yay!!! I loved seeing Livy's strength and determination win through all of the crap that was thrown in her way. Don't get me wrong, there was a lot of tears shed but she almost always came out with a smile on her face. 

"I love you, I won't go down without a fight. 
I'll take anyone on and I'll win against them all. Even you." 

Livy and Miller took me on one crazy ride with this story. One minute they were together, then they were not. They made me dizzy but one thing remained crystal clear throughout. And that was their love for each other. This pair were mad about each other. The times that they were together were both tender and loving but also erotic and sensual. 

"I beg you to love me forever." 

"You don't need to beg me. There's nothing more natural to me than loving you, Miller Hart."

They made a beautiful couple but was their relationship destined to last? I wasn't so sure. It appeared that there was a hell of a lot of obstacles standing in their way and as I progressed through the book, I was overcome with mixed feelings about their future. In one hand I was eager to discover what was going to happen but on the other I feared the worst and I became increasingly reluctant to continue reading. Especially as I got closer to the end. I really did not want anything bad to happen. 

"A relationship with Miller Hart is impossible. Apart, we are barely functioning. 
Together, were dead and incredibly alive at the same time. Were impossible." 

In this story, I also got the opportunity to know more about William and the story of William and Livy's Mum. It was a story that I really enjoyed and opened my eyes up to a lot of things. I truly like William and I can see my heart warming to him as the series continues. 

Before I go, I cannot end my review without the mention of Livy's delightful nan. Nan continued to be just as adorable as she was in "One Night: Promised". She really is a jem of a character. A true British nan who delivered some proper British words such as "daft" and "bugger". I bloody love Nan!!

So as you have most probably already gathered, I have a lot of love for "One Night: Denied" and I recommend it to everyone, especially if you love a tortured, sexy alpha! It was brilliantly written, captivating me from the first page. I am well and truly addicted and I'm already craving my next Livy and Miller fix!! Maybe I will just have to read this book again ;-D. 

Although this one didn't end in a cliffhanger there was a big WTF moment that left me needing book three desperately.
