REVIEW: One Night Unveiled by Jodi Ellen Malpas

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 . . .

Shel: If you saw my review of the second book in this series, you saw that I was a little frustrated--I thought the writing was a little uneven and even though I was getting answers, I wanted MORE answers. (Fairly typical of my reviews of 2nd books in a trilogy, shocking right?!) Never fear, Jodi Ellen Malpas fans, I was very satisfied with the final book in this series. 

There was still lots of angsty drama between the characters, lots of steamy sex scenes, and swoony British-isms but even better than that, there were ANSWERS--all of the loose ends were tied up. I also found the writing and pacing smoother and the epilogue should be renamed epic-logue because it was pretty effing epic in detail and information.

After this series, I'm wondering if I'm seeing a pattern emerge with JEM series? She favors strong heroines and heros, funny dialogue, interlopers who inevitably cause all sorts of trouble, she takes on risky characters and situations, but most importantly she creates these intense and enduring love affairs that don't seem to be contained and qualified by words and actions and years on this earth but seem destined to remain in the world long after the characters are gone.
