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...

I just have to roll my eyes and say 'really' when someone writes in a review that a fiction book was not realistic...come on now 'really'
In reading the reviews there's only one topic that hasn't been covered and I've discovered it's a very important part of Jodi's writings.
LISTEN TO THE SONGS!
Every time a song is being played Jodi tells us the title and who is singing. I've realized she does this because at the moment the song is mentioned she is using the song to take us to a deeper emotional state-of-mind of The Special One.
So when a song is mentioned hit pause, look it up and listen. My mp3 app will display the lyrics which is even better. I listened to the scene then played the song. The majority of the time the song gave an emotional intensity to the scene that it otherwise would not have had.
LISTEN TO THE SONGS!
JODI YOU ARE A GENIOUS.
Oh Ms. Malpas, you have done it again! I waited for this book to come out since I finished the first one and as soon as it did, I got it in a hurry. I definitely do not regret it. What a follow up story to One night Promised! This was an incredible book. So many details revealed. We get an inside look to what makes Miller, and why he does the things he does. Livy is head over heals in love with him, she finally admits it and she is willing to do anything for him just as he is for her. I love the elevator scene in the end, Miller's fear of Elevators is crippling and the way Livy helped him through it was encouraging. Their love for each other balances each other's strength's and weaknesses. Their bond is so strong that no matter what obstacle come their way,be it in the form of jealous old "clients" they always win. I love the end of the story. Their story continues in the third and final book-One Night Unveiled. I can't wait to listen to that also.
Great narration! I love Edita's voice for all the different characters, even the supportive characters, got their own distinct tone.
Great Job! Looking forward to the third book. I wish I could pre-order it so I don't miss a beat when it comes out.
Say something about yourself!
I really hate it when book 1 is awesome and book 2 is ridiculous! I want her, I need her, she is my air....until she isn't because I have to get rid of her for her own good....oh I'm not my mother, I refuse to be like her....until he dumps me for my own good so I will run around letting everyone hit on me now.
Nope, can't even finish it, it got too stupid.
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
In this second installment, Jodi Ellen Malpas’s writing continues to be lively, vivid and interesting. Her spectacular writing, along with the narration of Edita Brychta, makes this read/listen jump out and take on a whole other dimension of life.
I loved Livey’s grandmother Nan…OMG the woman is a hoot! I found William and Gracie’s story to be so tragic, but the developments about Miller’s past were heart-wrenching, and the kind of stuff that makes your stomach feel sick. This was a bit of a change for me because I could not shut off the constant comparisons my brain kept making between the leads in this book and that of the “This Man” series.
Miller is a much more vulnerable male lead, due to his past. Livey still can’t get over her love affair with Miller and refuses to let him go, even as the challenges continue to arise from all directions. There were a lot of precious stolen moments between Miller and Livey…some moments that reminded me a little of the movie “Pretty Woman.” Miller has neurotic ways, but given his background it makes sense that he would insist on compulsions that bring order to his life. Livey, is also a weaker female lead than Ava from the “This Man” series. In some respects she stands up for herself in a way that Ava never did, yet on the other hand she comes across as childish with her tantrum-like responses. Livey was also a kind of lost soul before her love for Miller developed. I wish she had some type of purpose in her life that made her a bit more interesting an intelligent that would have helped with her character development throughout the book.
Overall, I’m rooting for this couple! I want to see Miller’s invisible chains disintegrate. I want Miller and Livey to have their much deserved happily ever after, and I want the “immoral bastard” to pay dearly for the evil that was rained down upon Miller’s life. Also, I want some answers to the questions that were brought about from book 1.
Here’s to the final installment and hoping it provides readers with a fabulous ending and HEA for Miller and Livey.
Yes...I loved all her previous books.
This book dragged on about nothing! I kept waiting for the story line. This book was horrible. I loved her previous books, but this one was so boring.
Edita has a beautiful voice and great energy.
Not worth a credit.
I like to listen to my books because I am too lazy to read.
If you're someone who enjoys a weak, fumbling, spinelessly dull heroine, that then this is your book.
After listening to this, I am not quite sure if I want to get the third book. I HATE quitting in the middle of a series, but this book really put the nail in the coffin for me half way through and I was having a very difficult time finishing it.
Edita did a fantastic job narrating, but despite her talent, when the material is crap, well, you can only go so far before hitting the ceiling with this book.
While I thoroughly enjoyed the first book of the series, this second installment was so tepid and drawn out that I had stopped listening so many times. It was either the main heroine pissing me off due to her lack of spine and absolute worthlessness, or the fact that story was just going nowhere. For the first 80% of the book, the story goes back and forth between the heroine and her man doing the same thing to each other over and over again — granted I understand the author was just trying to build up the relationship, but it took forever for that set-up to happen and I am not quite sure if the author was just trying fill a quota or what, but it definitely felt like it. It was literally pulling teeth to get some momentum going for the story. While the first book got me a little hot and bothered here and there, the second book did absolutely nothing for me. I was so disappointed in the main characters that I couldn't even enjoy it because I found them unbelievably useless and lame.
Skip this one, and hopefully the third one will be better.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Before I started this second instalment of Miller and Livy's tumultuous, all consuming and intense love affair I thought I'd quickly go back and refresh myself by dipping into a few chapters from book 1. Oh how wrong I was!, because once I started that all consuming and tortuous listen again I was so engrossed, so enraptured and so totally hooked on it (for the second time) that I just had to, yes HAD to, listen to every word, ever paragraph and every chapter all over again, but this time with the joyful knowledge that I already had book 2 lined up ready to immediately follow it. However, NEVER EVER did I think that this second book could surpass book 1 with it's raw passion, with it's seismic sexual intensity, with it's gripping scenes, with it's deep and unerring beauty, with it's shocking discoveries and with it's jaw-dropping cliffhanger..... but it did.
I am in awe of these books, their creator and the narrator - a literature listener's Holy Trinity - and I have just pre-ordered book 3 already knowing that when 02-10-15 comes around..... no matter what book I'll be listening to, it'll be abandoned so I can relish the final instalment of Miller and Livy's romantic journey, a journey that's been heartbreaking, heart stopping and heartpoundingly brilliant.
Worth a credit? I've used three credits on this trilogy and what I got back was pure undisputed, unforgettable and undiluted magic.... so YES YES and YES every one was, and will be, worth it.
Avid audible "reader". I love romance, time travel and as my husband says, "Antonio riding up on his trusty steed."
I can't honestly tell you yet if I love it or not. There's so much drama that it's really frustrating at times...However I'm already downloading book 3 because I can't wait to learn more... So you be the judge!
I just feel like I could've skipped book 2, read the synopsis, and gone on to book 3. I really enjoyed book 1, and was really disappointed with this one. I am hoping book 3 finishes strong, there are a lot of unanswered questions and so much more to this story- so I believe book 3 has no where to go but up.
Yes, I usually enjoy her books, I think this one was just trying to stretch out book one and lead into book three, and missed what could've been a opportunity to develop more of the story.
This narrator does a good job, I have enjoyed her portrayal of this series.
