book review: "One Night Promised"

book review of : One Night Promised by Jodi Ellen Malpas

I've read a few romance novels lately, something I don't do often, but they have been good stories. This book is a romance genre, and had me saying "wait, what?"in the end of the book. The mystery was right there in the end.  Livy had me turning pages waiting for her fairy tale life to come true.

Livy lives with her grandmother, works at a diner, and goes out on the town with her friends, she seems like a everyday, average girl. Until, Mr. right is a customer at the dinner and she can't stop thinking about him even though he was such a rude customer, even writing a unfriendly note on the receipt telling her it was the worst cup of coffee ever signing it M.

Their paths meet again while she is working a catering job, M is a guest at the event. He follows her into the bathroom making his intentions clear, to be together for one night, no attachment, no feelings, But from then on they spend days together, not really going on dates, but just staying at his apartment. She doesn't know where he works or much about him, she just wants to be with him. The fancy car the well decorated apartment, the nice clothing, it's everything she wishes for. 

She becomes jealous when she sees him talking to other women. One of the woman tells Livy what M really is. Then we find out who she really is in this story. All along I was routing for her to find her true love, and live happily ever after. Turns out she lives another life than the one I was reading about!

One Night Promised is full of romance, love, or the thought of love, and mystery!

 Livy notices him the moment he walks into the coffee shop. He's heart-stoppingly stunning, with a blue-eyed gaze so piercing she's almost too distracted to take his order. When he walks out the door, she thinks she'll never see him again. Then she finds the note he left on his napkin . . . signed M. All he wants is one night to worship her. No feelings, no commitment, nothing but pleasure.

 Every defense mechanism Livy has adopted during her solitary life is at risk of being obliterated by this confounding man. He's obnoxious but well-mannered. He's a gentleman but aloof. He's passionate but emotionless. Yet the fascination is so powerful, Livy can't deny him . . . or herself. M awakens something in Livy, something deep and addictive that she never knew existed-and that she fears only he can satisfy. But she senses that behind the fast cars, fancy suits, and posh apartment, he's aching inside. To have him, body and soul, she'll have to brave his dark secrets. Delving into his world and breaking down his defenses become her obsession-an obsession that could shatter her heart beyond repair . .

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products.

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook.

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
