About part one: 

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?

About Part two:

They had it all—until he broke her heart…Part Two of Don't Deny Me, the new e-serial novel from bestselling author Megan Hart.From the moment he sees the girl in the green dress across the room, Mick is spellbound. He knows she’s too much, too good, more than he deserves…but he’s also sure that Alice is worth everything he’s got. So why is it that the more he tries, the more he seems to fail? Mick can’t figure out where he’s gone wrong. Alice needs something that he still can’t figure out how to give. And when it matters most, will Mick find a way to be there when she falls? The only thing he knows for sure is that he’s not going to lose Alice without a fight. . .

About part three:

Have the flames finally gone out—or will they burn brighter than ever before?Part Three of Don't Deny Me, the new e-serial from bestselling author Megan Hart.Mick is determined to be the kind of man who is worthy of Alice…and vows to hold on to her and never let go. But can people, and relationships, really change? If Alice does decide to let him back into her heart—and into her bed—will Mick be ready to show her the man that he’s become…and take a chance on love? And can Alice ever trust him again?

3.5 stars for all three installments... 

Something that you will feel in large quantities during this book is frustration! Yes, that appears to be the theme... and that is pretty consistent all the way to the end where it just... "ended"... very abruptly. I really did want a more fulfilling ending than what I got... I was left feeling that things weren't really resolved.
Mick and Alice were a couple 10 years ago and apparently in love but where they connected perfectly in the bedroom, verbal communication was not their greatest accomplishment and ultimately caused them to break up. But, they were young and it happens right??
Don't Deny Me, Part One was about their reunion 10 years later and yes the physical attraction and sparks are still there. So, they decide to give their relationship another go.
Don't Deny Me, Part Two is where we step back to the past and find out how they met and what happened to cause them to split.
Part 3 and the final installment brings us back to the present where we are hoping that age and time has matured this couple to a point where they can hopefully achieve a successful relationship together.
Throughout all three installments we follow the very awkward relationship between Jay, Paul and Dayna... It seems someone can't decide which side of the fence he likes to play on and so Paul spends the entire book flipping back and forth between his sexual relationship with Jay and Dayna. This storyline went nowhere... it just happens and it's kind of a side note. Also left very unresolved at the end.
Alice was obsessed with Mick saying what she wanted to hear instead of accepting him for who his is and it appears that actions mean nothing to her if it's not paired with the correct verbal response. I thought she was incredibly high maintenance and her expectations were way too high. Mick was a great guy, he was doing everything he could think of to take care of her and show her he wanted her. Just because he was having difficulty saying those three little words she wanted to hear that was no reason for her to assume that he didn't care. I could not wrap my head around this chick. Mick wasn't perfect, but no one is... and, his positive attributes definitely outweighed the negative.
The sex in this book is good... 5 stars for the great steam! But, great sex does not equate a great relationship. And, I guess that is the point of the book or maybe that's just the message I was getting.
Anyway, this was an entertaining read, strangely engaging despite my frustration... but, it just felt like it was a bit unfinished in the end.
