Summary

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....

Good Sequel

Took a bit of getting in to as at times very similar story to This Man but keep with it and it gets better - off to download the next book

Very frustrating

I really wanted to enjoy this but found it very frustrating. I would have preferred Livi to have more backbone and stopped Miller from pushing her around. Miller comes across as a nasty bully who wants everything his own way.
The storyline had potential but there's lots of repeated vocabulary which is annoying. How many times did we have to hear how blue Miller's eyes are?
The narrator didn't help. Miller's voice is creepy and Gregory sounds like a false cockney

One night

I never wright reviews but the narrators voice was so annoying that at times I just wanted to slap her around 😖 her voice was so annoying that I just couldn't get into the book!

Also the book is so similar to 50 shades that it was almost predictable.

what the hell

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.

appaulling narrator

feeble female lead and narrator terrible, I have liked her narration in other books but she narrated this with the voice of a 15 year old girl - ruined a story that I probably would have enjoyed if I'd read it, was a test of endurance no inclination to listen to the next part of the story

Great start

Another great book from JEM, why would you expect anything less. Yet again I've fallen in love with the main characters Miller and Livy. Can't wait to see what happens in the next installment.

brilliant

I've read and re read so many of JEM's books but I only ever read the one night trilogy once. I liked the story but not as much as some of her others. I found listening to this, part 1, so much better than reading, I'm so much more invested in this intriguing story and loved Edita Brychta's narration, even better than This Man. I can't wait to listen to the rest so I've purchased both book 2 and 3 now to binge listen...

Amazing.

Loved this book. So cross with myself for waiting so long to listen to this. Miller and Livy are a great match.

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.

Love it

I have loved JEM books for a while, this series is one of my favorites and now I got the audiobook, the narration was spot on, I enjoyed it very much. I think this story deserved a second go after years of reading it and I am glad I got the audio this time around, it was a different experience.
