Don't Deny Me: Part One: A Novel in Three Parts by Megan Hart

He's back, and the heat between them cannot be denied…
Part One of Don't Deny Me, the passionate new e-serial novel from bestselling author Megan Hart.

Alice and Mick had it all: the happy days, the heartfelt evenings, the hot, slow nights. But Mick couldn't give her what she needed, and in a moment of crisis, they lost everything. Torn apart, Alice tries to pry him out of her life and move on—until a not-so-chance meeting at an old friend's party brings them face-to-face once more. Now they're talking again, Alice can't escape the burning in her chest whenever he's near, the way his eyes still follow her around the room…but she won't repeat the mistakes of her past. Passion alone is nothing to build a life on. Or is it?

WOW! I’m already hooked. Don’t Deny Me: Part One has set the stage for this three part serial novel, with the author giving just enough information about Alice and Mick to know that despite a short but rocky relationship, there are still VERY strong feelings between them ten years later. I loved how Ms. Hart uses letters (sent and unsent) between Alice and Mick to reveal parts of their past. And while conversations between them and some of their friends during the weekend anniversary party for Bernie and Cookie (two of their mutual friends) reveal more details, the actual cause of their breakup has not yet been revealed. Mick accepts that he was largely responsible for the demise of their relationship a decade ago, and yet still seems to make some of the same mistakes during the weekend gathering. Despite his inability to communicate and his penchant for screwing up things with Alice, I liked Mick’s character because it’s clear that he does love her. I actually felt really bad for him when they were watching the old home movies and he had his epiphany about how much he had hurt Alice with his actions ten years earlier. I’m torn between cheering him on and telling Alice to run while she can because I don’t yet know why their relationship ended with Alice telling him she never wanted to see him again. Add to that well written mystery, some hot and heavy make-out scenes and you’ll know why I’m ready to jump into Don’t Deny Me: Part Two now.  I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.  Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review* Unfortunately this book just wasn't for me. I had a hard time getting through this knowing it was only part 1 of 3 and there was nothing really happening except two people reconnecting after a decade and a party at a lake.  No backstory, no build up, no drama, no nothing. Well, there was a bit of drama at the end but not enough for me to want to read the second book. I think if this trilogy was read as a whole, it might be different. Just reading this first book, I don't understand why this was split into a trilogy. I am a fan of Megan hart so this will not deter me from reading anything fromher int he future, however, I will not be finishing this trilogy.

Despite a few reservations about releasing a novel in three parts, I’ve now read the entire book and each piece makes complete sense, and Megan Hart has created a compelling and engaging story that will pull at the heartstrings of every reader who wondered “what if”.   Alice has been single for the past ten or so years, after her relationship with Mick ended rather spectacularly.  These two are part of a group of friends, and have managed to avoid seeing one another since their breakup, But, the ‘ringleaders’ of the group are celebrating their 20th anniversary, and want all their friends to share in the fun.  I loved the alternating point of view in this story, bringing in perspectives and information about their friends and their very public reuniting,  as they both play with feelings of familiarity, comfort and attraction that never really left.  The characters are all very solidly real and well-developed, and even though the desire for a relationship isn’t necessarily there in the forefront, we do see from Alice and Mick that love, real love, is often the hardest connection to break.  Alice and Mick both have solid and definable voices that feel honest and real: love and attraction are confusing emotions, especially when there is a spark of hope for something more or different.  Alice is most certainly a touch passive aggressive with her “I won’t until he does’ stuff, and Mick – well – he just doesn’t. It’s not that he doesn’t think of saying something, but his own Y chromosome seems to blunt the thought – to – speech pathway.  Of course, this is the first of three parts, and exes are an ex for a reason. But this lead in to the story of Alice and Mick and their friends is a wonderful start.  I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility

This emotionally charged first part of three in the Don't Deny Me serial introduces us to Alice and Mick and their circle of friends. Alice and Mick broke up 10 years earlier and have had no contact since then, but meet up at their friends' wedding anniversary. The reader isn't told why their relationship failed only that they cut all ties when it happened. It's obvious that they still have strong feelings for each other and the sexual tension is strong throughout, as they endeavor to find out what, if anything, might be left to salvage of their once heated relationship. The chemistry they still share leads them into some steamy encounters, but it isn't clear that that will be enough to rekindle their relationship. I loved how this story kept the reader on their toes, waiting and anticipating the moments when the truth of their long buried feelings for each other would come out. I particularly liked the letters between them, sent and unsent, that really give a feel for the good and the bad of what happened between them - the desire and the heartache. There is a side romantic triangle as well that involves three of their circle of friends that was equally as interesting. I devoured this quickly and can't wait for part 2! Highly recommended.

This is a good contemporary book. We meet Alice and Mick who meet with mutual friends.  Alice and Mick have been apart for 10years. This is a love/dislike sort of romance. Megan has written them as real, terrified ex lovers. Their friends watch them but give them lots of room. I think I know what broke them up besides poor communication but I'm not sure. Mick tries again and Bang-end of this episode. I like this book and I am waiting for the next story. Give this book a try. I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.    .
