I'm incredibly lucky enough to have been able to read an Advanced copy of the second instalment to Jodi Ellen Malpas' One Night Series. So far in the story we've met Olivia Taylor, a seemingly ordinary girl with a painful, unconventional past. Who on an ordinary day, meets a less than ordinary Man; Miller Hart. Since the start it's been an passionate, intense and high-angst affair. Admittedly I didn't fully connect with Miller in the first book but with an explosive ending, I knew I'd be back for more.

Denied commences two weeks later and we see Livy trying, unsuccessfully to pick herself up and dust herself off. Such is the force of their attraction, that after much soul searching on Livy's part, it couldn't be denied.

‘I beg you to love me for ever.’ My face falls into his neck and nuzzles. ‘You don’t need to beg me,’ I murmur. ‘There’s nothing more natural to me than loving you, Miller Hart.’

Everything between them is perfect without outside influences, Olivia and Miller are the embodiment of "When we're good, we're great!" But when they're not, the fallout is spectacular. Jodi is able to immerse the reader in their relationship and also make it feel as though you are in the eye of the storm. It's interesting because what I loved about them as a couple, also drove me crazy and I found that a peculiar position to be in.

‘Never stop loving me, Olivia Taylor.’ His plea requires no thought. ‘Never.’

I loved the development into Miller's past, at times we see a more relaxed and enjoyable Miller; but never lurking far from the surface is the intense, brooding man never afraid to protect what's his should he feel threatened. I connected far more with Miller in this book. Does that mean I understood or agreed with all of his actions? No. But I did understand the reason behind it.

I’m over his finicky nature. It’ll always fascinate me but, more significant than that, I’m irrevocably head over heels, painfully and utterly in love with him – no matter who he was, what he did, and how damn obsessive he is.

Although a lot of my focus was on Miller for this read, it should be noted that Olivia has a lot of unresolved issues. She makes some questionable decisions and as we have learned previously, searches for answers in all the wrong places. The story again ends on another gasp and one thing is for sure, Jodi Ellen Malpas does good cliffhanger.
