“Day or night, I see only you.”
First of all let’s start at the end, because we can. It has to be said; Jodi Ellen Malpas sure knows how to write a kick-arse epilogue. We had the tingles and our hearts went into overdrive as they both melted and swooned through happy tears as well as laughter. Again, what a stunning end to a trilogy. A beautiful present wrapped up in sparkly paper with a huge scrumptious bow. Perfection. Jodi Ellen Malpas is a class Author and a fantastic writer of stories that burrow deep, entertain and have you reaching for an icepack to cool those hot flushes right down.
“I’ll love you until there’s no breath left in my lungs, Olivia Taylor. For eternity.”
Right, now that’s said we have to say that we’ll NEVER forget the beautiful Mr Hart. He stole our hearts in Denied and he never gave them back and we’re perfectly okay with this. He’ll keep a tight hold of them forever. We loved everything about him; his idiosyncrasies; the way he loves with everything he is and his passion and devotion. His thing. Miller Hart was perfect imperfection and we’ll miss him. Terribly.
“I love your bones, Miller Hart.”
He was the ultimate highlight of this series. Our hearts broke for him; they rejoiced with him, they swooned for him and they ended up belonging to him.
“You are my soul, Olivia Taylor. You are my light. You are my reason to breathe. Don’t ever doubt that. Be mine for eternity, I beg you. Because I promise I am yours.”
Now, the sweet, slightly naïve and hot-headed Olivia Taylor. She really came into her own in this final instalment; we saw her strength yet again and she had us wanting to both hug her and applaud her sassiness. In some respects, for want of a better expression, she grew some balls and went all out to protect what’s hers – Miller Hart.
“I need you with me, Livy. I feel like I’m constantly balancing on the edge of a black hole that’ll swallow me up and take me back to complete darkness with one slight wrong move.”
Unveiled is a book of revelations as every lie and secret comes to the surface. There’s some shockers in store as we finally learn the truth about Miller and the back story to his sweet girl Livy. Our hearts may have broken a little bit whilst wanting to jump into the story and kick some arse.
“I’ll be here for you, Always.”
‘I fucking love her! I love her. I love everything she stands for and I love how much she loves me. If any fucker tries to take her away from me, then I’ll fucking kill them. Slowly.’
Whilst we did love the romantic and passionate Miller time and sweet and funny moments with Nan who’s without doubt our fave Nan out there; we did find the build up to the final crescendo a bit slow. We think the main issue we’ve had with Denied and Unveiled is the repetition and tendency for verbosity. For us, sadly, once we got to the exciting and dramatic crux of the reveal it was over very quickly. However, we have to say that the epilogue more than made up for that and we finished reading with a satisfied smile on our faces.
‘An eternity of this still couldn’t ever be enough.’
