If you are looking for your next Jesse Ward and hoping this is as passionate and demanding as This Man then this is not the book for you. Even without the This Man comparison i think this book still needs a little more oompf in places and Livy needs to be a little less scattery all the time.
It is still a great read with characters you will either love or hate and a story line that will keep you interested.
I feel as if I know them & am so comfortable with them.
Lovely flowing story magical sexual moments & caring times .
You get to know them or so you think.
I would have done what Livvy did in following her man to see what was going on .
In my head now .
Thanks again Jodi you never cease to amaze me .
Livvy is a bit annoying, but no more so than other leading female characters, and again her story line and how it interacts with M will be an enjoyable read.
I concur with other 5 star reviews

I wish Amazon would rate in half stars because I would give this book a 4.5 out of 5 but I didn't want to round it down to a 4 hence the 5 star rating.
Okay so the book itself... Miller Hart, I felt completely captivated by him from the get go, I quite like a moody and mysterious man so unlike some reviewers who said that they couldn't connect with him I enjoyed his games and how he would never fully give Livvie a complete insight into what he was feeling. The story flowed quite easily until it reached 70% and then I began to get bored, hence the 4.5. I feel like 10% of the book between 70% and 80% was just unnecessary and then at 80% the story became exciting again. The ending is great however and I will definitely be buying the next book.
I had heard a lot about the Special One and wanted to find out what all the fuss was about. I don’t know where to begin… I was besotted with Miller from the very start. He is the perfect mix of sexy, arrogant, frustrating, charming and possessive. He is so mysterious and you are constantly hoping to find out more about him and why he is the way he is. He is captivating, it’s not hard to see why he’s never shy of female attention.
Livy is a sweet girl who is haunted by her past. She knows she shouldn’t get involved with Miller but is helpless to stop it. The relationship between the two of them is addictive. They can’t stay away from each other. I love their connection and how they bring out both the best and the worst in each other.
I started book two as soon as I finished this. You won’t want to wait for more Miller! This has definitely become one of my favourite ever reads.
I'll be honest, the first time I read this, I just wasn't that fussed but then again, after you read about Jesse then no book is going to be on par!! But as with all my books I read it twice (read the whole series, take a break and go back again!) and after reading it for the second time, I have to say - bloody nora Miller you have me twisted!!!
This is full of mind games, it's full humour, it's full of passion, it's full of twists and oh my lord, it's just full!!!
The best way to explain Miller I that he's an enigma! You think you know him?......you don't!
Livy is a sweet girl, funny, caring but don't be fooled that's she's the typical innocent....shes not!
Grandma.....jees I love you lol, she's a treasure to behold!
Read this book, you won't be disappointed - as long as you don't compare him to Jesse!!
I felt this book was too similar to 'This Man' trilogy and in some scenes 'Beard to you' when Livy was running out of the hotel because she didn't want to think about all the other girls he there with, the receptionist handing him a key without any money. Has a gay best friend and secrets. (Sound familiar?)
Livy is 24 years old, but she came across younger then she really is. I wanted Livy to be stronger then what she was, but because she lived with her nan, it just made her very young and not independent, when 'M' takes her to his home the first time, he tells her to "get in" she looks to her friend for help. A man you don't know asks you to "get in his car" you say NO.
It took awhile to get into this book, I feel that it could have be written in half the pages. I felt the "Love" between Livy and 'M' was too fast. After meeting him 3 times and spoken to him only a handful of times, Livy was in love. Was a little depressed and "couldn't stop thinking about him" I was a little to far-fetched.
I felt no connection to Livy and 'M' because I felt it was too fast and I felt no connection to the characters at all.
To me it's easy to figure out, or close enough, who this story will go and I'm not sure if I can be bothered enough to buy the next book. I just felt lost in this book, and like another reviewer, I rolled my as well when the plot seemed to pull towards the 'This Man' series.
People who loved 'This Man' series will love J.E.M New series, it was not for me.
Olivia is a lovely, sweet girl, working in a coffee shop and living with and looking after her nan. She is beautiful and shy and never really had a boyfriend due to her dedication to her nan. In walks 'M' to her coffee shop and her world is turned upside down. He wants one night with her. Olivia is tempted.
Jodi Ellen Malpas is certainly an author who gradually strips back layers of characters. I found myself 'oohing and aahing' along the way. There were times when I couldn't bear how M treated Olivia and I wanted to shake her for allowing it. Then there were times when I wanted to hug M as he began to crumble his walls. M is definitely a complicated character but, love him or hate him., he is fascinating. Olivia is the girl you would be friends with. Likable, lovely and loyal although at times I couldn't make up my mind whether she needed protecting or a wake up call.
Similar to 'This Man' series, the alpha male gradually reveals more and more of his story with some shocks along the way. Some of the twists I saw coming and some were total surprises. There is so much detail and planning used by the author throughout when creating these characters that I must applaud her.
This is not a sweet romantic read but it is captivating and addictive. I'm moving on straight to the next in the series.
