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.
M awakens something in Livy, something deep and addicting that she never knew existed-and that she fears only he can satisfy. But she senses that behind the fast cars, fancy suits, and posh apartment, he's aching inside. To have him, body and soul, she'll have to brave his dark secrets. Delving into his world and breaking down his defenses becomes her obsession - an obsession that could shatter her heart beyond repair....

absolutely loved this. I love how the author entices you into the book and into the characters of the book. better than 50 shades of grey
what sort of English is that had to switch off after 1st chapter the narrator was just awfully her use of the English accent was just dreadfully I have never heard it so bad.. something from Eliza doolittle maybe before they thought her how to speak. not prepared to listen to anymore. worst ever.wish I could get a refund.
It's been a long time since 'This Man' trio and greatly anticipated. I found it was repeated too many times and dragged in places taking a long time to get to the point. It borders on boring with the repeats of certain 'scenes'. Hopefully the 2nd book will pick up pace and move quicker. I found the narrator bland and somewhat irritating.
"4.5 “M Stands For Mysterious” Stars!"
Miller (aka M.) and Olivia meet when he goes into the coffee shop she works at and he orders coffee from her. She's immediately smitten and gets nervous while making the coffee especially since she's only worked there for a few days. And....Miller doesn't hesitate to let her know just how bad the coffee was.
I was bought and sold right from the note he left her. I love JEM's This Man series and was hoping for something similar and I wasn't disappointed. I couldn't put the book down!
Miller is a secretive man and it takes a bit before we get answers about him. But some things are not too hard to figure out especially if you've read the This Man series. I really loved Miller's big flaw...it just made him that more endearing. Unfortunately, what may have caused it won't be a good thing. I really wish we couldn't had his POV!!
Olivia (aka Livy) was definitely thrown for a loop with this smooth talker but I have to give her credit for trying to hold her own. Unfortunately, she runs off a lot...but with good reason.
These two are HOT!! And extremely frustrating because Miller will only do things a certain way. Plus he focuses on certain things that don't make sense in the beginning but are sooo sweet later.
There is a lot of drama naturally. A lot comes from Miller not divulging any personal information and just expecting Livy to trust him anyway. I do love how Miller can't stay away from her.
A negative for me was not knowing what was going on with Miller. Of course, I had theories...some have come to fruition and some were a bit predictable and some we just don't know yet. And when things came out in the end, I felt Livy was just a little too self-righteous!
I freaking loved the ending though! ~Sigh~ JEM does that sooo well. I am off to buy book 2
Edita Brychta was again outstanding with the delivery of the story.
