Wow. What can I say about this book? I could not put it down!!!. It was a wonderful read. It was funny, it was charming, there was suspense but yet intrigue. I don't enough words to explain this book. It was more than exquisite!. It was classy, but still relate-able; shocking and very unexpected in so many ways. I can't wait for the next book in the series. I love this author, and the narrator definitely brought something extra to the book. I think I have found a new author to follow. Whew... what a read!

When you have the combination of a vivid writer such as Jodi Ellen Malpas, paired with the talented narration of Edita Brychta, it is a feast for the senses, the heart, and the mind, as the story is told in such a magnificent way! After reading/listening to the "This Man" series, I was going through withdrawals because I wanted more....Thankfully, Malpas has gifted readers with what seems to be another fantastic trilogy!
Yes, it's true that the story surrounding Livy, a sweet but guarded stunning woman, and the drop-dead gorgeous, yet mysterious "M" certainly feels like a variation of Jessie and Ava's story, from the "This Man" series, but let me tell you, I DON"T CARE....Malpas can continue writing a thousand variations, and I'd be in bliss....Jessie Cloud 9, or something similar-kind of bliss...Hahaha! Yet, it's important to emphasize that even though the style of writing in this book is vintage Malpas, Livy and 'M's" romance catapults into their own unique story that will dazzle and keep readers intrigued.
I found Livy to be a very likable female lead, and her need to live and care for her grandmother added a special aspect to this story. I also enjoyed Livy's friends, who although are limited, are fun and very protective of her.
Now Mr. "M"....mmmmmm, where should I start? --Yes, he is mysterious, devilishly attractive, demonstrates impeccable manners, yet I like that he has his own neurotic tendencies that gave him a vulnerable kind of charm.
Livy and "M" have instant die-hard attraction for one another. The love scenes are steamy, and packed with longevity and stamina....LOL. "M" is emotionally as closed off as a fortress, and initially insists on only spending 24 hours of passionate indulgences with Livy, yet he definitely sees that she is special and wants more from her. I loved that he was able to come to the point where he could acknowledge a need for Livy that was powerful and pushed him to pursue her relentlessly (well, nowhere near Jessie Ward-stalker style, but still pretty relentless). I loved how "M" felt that his relationship with Livy was worth fighting for.
But, alas this book doesn't end well, and I blame Livy for that one. I think she did wrong, and that makes the wait for the release of the next book even more excruciating!!!!! There are devastating revelations about both Livy and "M's" history, but Livy didn't accept "M's" history as well as he accepted hers. OMG!!! Right when things were going to well for both Livy and M!!!!! BAM!!!.....PLEASE CAN WE FAST FORWARD TO NOVEMBER ALREADY????
THIS WAS A GREAT START TO THE SERIES....CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT DEVELOPMENTS THE 2ND INSTALLMENT HAS IN STORE FOR READERS/LISTENERS.......
