Ok gonna keep this short and sweet. Jodi has a way of writing a complete story. From beginning to end she makes you fall in love with these characters. Just like the "this man " series she finds a way to take the reader on a unexpected journey. A journey into worlds we all no nothing about. I hope she continues to take us on additional voyages to the unknown with the same quality of love and suspense we have come to depend on. Extremely happy I started this series. Fantastic narrator hands down one of the best!
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
Well I've just finished this intense and stunning listen and I'm in awe of Ms Malpas because this final part of her beautiful and breathtaking love story was every bit as intense, riveting, sensual and emotional as her previous books. Jaw-dropping shocks and surprises, heartbreaking revelations, torture filled twists, a pulse-pounding romance, lots of hot passion-filled sex, nail biting drama and tender words of love are all experienced as Miller and Olivia desperately struggle to hold on tightly to each other as their epic love story concludes in this dramatic finale.
Worth a credit? It's been one hell of an emotional ride.... I've laughed, cried, screamed, sighed, drooled and melted, the romance took my breath away, the drama broke my heart and the sweet Epilogue finally gave me an insight into Miller's mind. Thank you Ms. Malpas you are a gifted Author, you're an auto download for me and I can't wait to see what you're going to wow me with next. Great narration and absolutely worth a credit or buy.
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.
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
This is Jodi Ellen Malpas's second series and it was good. Most notably, the second half was the best part of the book. It's when the real developments and action start setting everything into motion. Miller and Livy go through a very tough journey, but they never give up on their love and that was so special. I really enjoyed the great intimacies of Miller's "worshipping" of Livy and pulling her into "his thing." Miller's little hallmark sayings were endearing…."I concur" and "elaborate." It was so cute how Livy borrowed the sayings, periodically, when interacting with Miller. I did have a problem with Livy's "sass." Her so-called "sass," especially in the first part of the book was not fun, flirty banter, but outright disrespect toward Miller. OMG, in the first part of the book Livy was driving me freaken nuts!!! She came across as childish, spoiled and rude to Miller. I think it was Livy's immature thinking and reactions that overwhelmed the first part of the book making it boring and slow. It just seemed like filler material. However, the second part of the book made up for it….and it was all because of Miller!!! Oh, I really felt for Miller. I could not believe the challenges he was facing, and while Livy tackled their issues with the wit and force of a rhinoceros, Miller was steady, patient, and even-paced. Oh there are some really sweet moments expressed by Miller toward his sweet girl (even though she acted like a selfish brat most of the time).
There are a lot of love making scenes. Yet due to high pressure and duress that seemed to be coming at Miller and Livy from all directions, when they made love it was like they were mating in captivity….LOL…I know that's silly, but it's how I felt.
However, after the HUGE showdown, that is, the fight for Miller's freedom commences and all of the revelations are brought forward, there is this wonderful 2 hours of bliss for all of the characters, especially Miller and Livy. As a reader, I really appreciated that time of absolute ecstasy where Miller and Livy got to flourish in their freedom…OMG it was wonderful!!! And, the love making scenes meant so much more since they were completely free!
The epilogue was super sweet! It was in Miller's POV and oh that man….Miller Hart! What a dear! In general, I love great epilogues and one of the best parts of this one is that Livy finally gains a purpose outside of Miller!!! That was huge to me since she always seemed kind of lost, as a person. Oh, such sweet cuteness!!! OMG, loved the epilogue…the whole series was worth it because of the epilogue and HEA that everyone experiences.
Narration: Edita Brychta was superb, as usual! Her performance was brilliant!
Rant: Ok, I have an added rant here….What the hell is up with JEM inserting the "F-word" into Jesus Christ when the lead's cuss. OMG, that is so disrespectful and offensive and I hate it as a reader. I wonder if this is a trend in the UK, even though I've seen American writers do this same thing. I have never heard anyone use this swear word in real life, if so I would also hate it and scowl at the person….Seriously, there are other swear words that can be used that will be impacting…why be so unnecessarily offensive??????
so upset to rate this so low but after adoring the this man trilogy and the first one night book, I have to say this was about 4-6 hours too long. too many unnecessary chapters drug out what would have been a 3 or 4 star read for me had it been shorter..
Storyline: enjoyed, though some areas in the series dragged a bit.
Female lead: disappointing, particularly beginning in the second book. Without giving too many spoilers, I became very agitated with the stupid, dangerous decisions made by Livy. This was to the point that as a female reading books two and three, I felt insulted. Even in the world of fiction, Livy should have ended up in the hospital more than once and Miller dead, due to several of her decisions. I cannot help but wonder what the author was thinking?
Credits to author: causing enough emotions in me to read the entire series and submit a review. Once I calm down and push my psyche deeper into fiction, I will read the series again to see what I may have missed; though, I'm sure it will be a while.
I loved this series! The author really takes you on an emotional ride throughout the entire series. I had a hard time giving myself a break from listening to it and there were many parts that my heart was pounding from the suspense or I laughed out loud or wanted to cry. Very impressive series!
Why is it so popular to write the female leads as so Stupid with no self preservation instincts. It's my own damn fault for reading and continuing to hope the character would get a clue. Are all British women this naive? Really, the story would be much, much better if the female lead was a little brighter than a moon rock.
It's been a bit since I read the first 2 books, but I really liked them. This one was just the characters using the same obnoxious phrases over and over, and the same sex scenes chapter after chapter. Jodi still writes well, grammatically and there is a good story and great character development. But she needs to use some new wording, instead of the same phrase each time
