THREE ADDICTED TO YOU STARS.
"I'm not sure if I can function without you, I feel like you've become a vital part of what keeps me breathing."
I don't mind admitting that I'm one of those readers that happily fell straight into love with everything Jodi Ellen Malpas and her 'This man' series. Jesse Ward is an obsession, he was and still is one of my favourite main characters to date and to say that I was a little excited to be meeting another of this authors heroes would be a huge understatement. 'Promised' was my most anticipated book release of 2014 there was nothing and no one that could keep me away from this book and I happily scooped my paperback copy as soon as it hit the shelves. You can almost guarantee that I'd be attempting to be first in line to grab whatever this author may publish, however as much as I adore this author and have no doubt what so ever at her talent I'm left with conflicted thoughts over how I feel about this novel. Disappointed? I wouldn't quite go that far, but I wanted to fall flat out in love with this novel and sadly it wasn't meant to be. With that all being said it wasn't all doom and gloom, this is a Jodi Ellen Malpas novel after all and readers you can expect those one liners to grab your attention and make you fall in love with her writing.
What's it all about?
For years Olivia has kept her focus on her elderly grandmother and the need to be nothing like the birth mother who abandoned her as a child. Staying close to home and enjoying the comforts of a family bond has meant the world to this sweet but broken beauty and relationships and the chase of love has never been an interest for her. But all that may need to change when she meets the mysterious and utterly compelling man in a suit who introduces himself as 'M'. Confused by her instant attraction Livy can't help but be drawn to this man that she knows nothing about and this aloof character is about to change her world. Offering one night, no feelings, no commitments just adoration and complete pleasure Livy can't stop the attraction that changes all what she thinks she knows about love forever. Follow the secretive love story of a couple that find a surprising obsession with one another that they never knew could happen.
What did I love?
This author has created a fabulous tale of opposites attract, a story where a slightly broken, seemingly sweet girl, gets the opportunity to fall for the mysteriously closed off gentleman. Instantly this book grabbed my attention and if nothing else Ms Malpas has produced a story line that had me turning the pages like a mad woman desperate for more information. There are so many secrets and twists and turns throughout the developing storyline that I was kept guessing all the way through and although I had an idea of what was to come, Ms Malpas certainly kept the intrigue at the forefront of the story telling. As usual with this author there was plenty of precise attention to detail and quirky character traits that gives her books an original edge and there was obvious, loving thought given to the character development. The characters themselves were thought provoking, Olivia and the secretive 'M' both had telltale signs of characters written by this author. Livy was a heroine that I warmed to instantly there are some hidden depths to her sweet facade that made her interesting to read about and I loved her quirky relationship with her grandmother. She also had some back bone throughout the difficult points in the story line and I'm hoping that as the series continues she doesn't loose that sassy side of her personality in fact I'd love to see more. 'M' is a hero that I believe will be a 'grower' the secret of his name is not hidden for too long so there's no need to worry about that side of the story telling but this author is keeping things close to her chest and doesn't reveal too much about the allusive and gentlemanly character. I've yet to fall in love with this trilogies hero but there's time yet for that to happen. Overall I enjoyed this first instalment and I'm happy I spent my time with this most anticipated book release but I didn't feel that five star, love struck feeling about the story as a whole. Would I recommend to readers who love this author? Absolutely. Am I looking forward to November and part two of the trilogy? I'm already counting down the days.
Why not five?
As you've already guessed I like to think of myself as a fan of this author and so it goes without saying that I felt conflicted by my rating. As always I almost feel like I have to justify a three star review, but to those who are not aware a three star rating means that I enjoyed the book and I never wanted to miss out on what was to come but it had something missing for me to fall obsessively in love with the book. So with that reminder out of the way I can go on to tell you a little of what was missing for my reading tastes. Firstly, I missed the fast paced nature of this authors previous writing style, I found myself feeling like the book needed to pick up the pace in parts and dare I say at times I found the story telling a little slow and a tad boring. The novel undoubtably had moments that made my heart race and some of the character conversations had me smiling like a demented Cheshire Cat but sadly I felt those moments didn't carry the story pace enough to have me glued to the dialogue and unravelling plot. I also had moments when I thought the story was somewhat repetitive, I'd find myself excited by the story finally moving forward only to find the characters on loop and straight back at square one again. As I've mentioned I feel conflicted over my thoughts but what I do know is that this author has a writing talent that will always have something to deliver to the reading community and to top it off the last 10 - 15% of this book was a full out glaringly obvious five star ending and it reminded me of why I love this author so much. The characters were interesting and I enjoyed the beginning of this saga but somewhere in between unfortunately there was some love lost. I can already see from reviews posted so far that I'm in the minority here so don't take my word for it as they say 'no two readers read the same book' and I'm hoping that this novel gains some positive attention and a dedicated following.
Final thoughts ...
I can't help but want to applaud this author and I'll explain why, Instead of riding on the coat tails of success from her first trilogy she has respectfully dusted off her 'This man' title and started what seems to be yet another amazing trilogy, stepping up and writing again after great success must have taken courage and guts and I'm glad that Jodi Ellen Malpas has put herself out there once again. The start of this trilogy may have left me feeling conflicted overs my thoughts but nothing will keep me from queuing up with the rest of the Jodi Ellen Malpas enthusiasts ready for book two. Those who are ready to fall for a mysterious hero that keeps you guessing will need to get themselves well aquatinted with this novel. 'M' is waiting for you readers ... Enjoy, kisses.

Read information about the author‘A lingering idea that I just couldn’t ignore.’ – Jodi Ellen Malpas
Jodi Ellen Malpas wrote her debut series, The This Man Trilogy, in secret, worried about what people might think if they knew what her imagination was capable of. She was shocked herself. But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN - the first book of the This Man Trilogy - in October 2012. She took a chance on a story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters.
Jesse Ward – also affectionately known as The Lord of The Manor, sparked incredible reactions from women across the globe and catapulted Jodi into the world of women’s fiction. With so much love and enthusiasm from her readers, and a thirst for more of her words, Jodi suddenly wasn't afraid of her imagination anymore. She went on to write The One Night Trilogy with the delectable and mysterious Miller Hart, and stole the hearts of her readers once again. She’s now a proud #1 New York Times bestselling author – all six of her published novels having hit the New York Times best sellers list – as well as a Sunday Times bestseller and international best seller. Her work is published in over 20 languages across the world.
Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a Converse & mojito addict, and has a terrible weak spot for Alpha Males.
Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion – a passion she now shares with her devoted readers
