About One Night: Unveiled:A life without secrets and a passion without end . . .The story of Livy and M's passionate love affair comes to a stunning conclusion in the final book in the One Night trilogy!
Livy has never known pure desire like this. The gorgeous Miller Hart captivates her, seduces her, and worships her in deliciously sinful ways. He knows her innermost thoughts, drawing her ever deeper into his dangerous world.
Miller will do anything to keep Livy safe, even if it means risking his own life. But his dark history isn't the only thing that threatens their future together. As the truth of Livy's family legacy unravels, an unsettling parallel between past and present comes to light. Her world spinning out of control, Livy finds herself caught between the rapture of an all-consuming love-and a deadly obsession that could destroy them both...
I loved the first book in this series. The intrigue. The chemistry. The chase. The surrender.
The second book, not so much. I actually kind of hated it. Just because it seemed kind of pointless. A lot of stuff kept happening, but the overall storyline was kind of in the same spot at the end as it was in the beginning. It just seemed like pages of unnecessary drama and fighting between Livy and Miller. They were also starting to remind me too much of Jesse and Ava. I love Jesse and Ava, but wasn’t looking to read more of the same. On top of that, it answered no questions raised in the first book, yet brought up several more. And it didn’t answer any of the new ones either.
Luckily, Jodi Ellen Malpas pulled through in the conclusion to the trilogy. I didn’t enjoy it as much as I did the first book, but at least I can say I liked this series, since the sum of how much I liked books one and two is greater than how much I disliked the second. Yay, math. 🙂
There were spots in here where I was bored or a little confused, but at least the things that were happening mattered. But relationships progressed and matured, loose ends were tied, and chapters were closed.
Most importantly for me, questions were answered. The second book raised so many and answered pretty much none of them, neither those brought up in the first book nor the second. That bothered me a lot, too. However, I’m still a little iffy on some things. It’s not so much that I’m confused, as things just don’t add up. Like, View Spoiler »I wouldn’t even call Miller a prostitute or anything like that. He seemed like he was pretty much brought into a slavery ring. His relationship with the industry seemed much more like he was a sex slave than a prostitute. « Hide Spoiler
But overall, it was a good third book in a trilogy. Like I’ve said before, the last book in a trilogy is usually my least favorite because it’s all about wrapping things up and ending everything properly before it’s over. But for One Night: Unveiled, that was perfect. After being frustrated with how “open” everything ended after the second book, Unveiled really needed to tie things up neatly for me. And for the most part, it did.
