Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Erotica, 2014

Book 1 of This Man Trilogy, the number-one New York Times best-selling series!

Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward - a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

    "I hated this book! (Contains spoilers)"

    I can't even finish it. Save your credit and pass... Please do yourself a favor and do not even bother. I have never regretted a credit as much as I did with "This Man". I had high hopes for it, and tried, I mean really tried to like it, but once the whole birth control pills shenanigans started, they lost me. I mean, just try to picture it the other way around, and a girl was purposely trying to get knocked up by tampering with, condoms, let's say... We would be outraged.I know it's just a "romance fantasy novel" (and yes, I am using that term very lightly) but it just not resonate me at all. I found it to be sick and twisted. Nice try though Ms Jodi Ellen Malpas.
    On a last note, I do have to say that the narrator in this book, Edita Brychta was this audiobook's only saving grace.

    Story
    "Another "Merry-go-round" book"

    Someone wrote an earlier review that said "wash, rinse, repeat" and I have to whole heartedly agree with her. I hate bashing any book because a review is only one person's opinion and can infect others' judgements and they may end up loving the book. However, with that being said, this book was definitely not for me. It was far too long and far too merry go round-ish. They fought and got back together far too much for my taste, while never talking about any issues that were bothering them. Thus further perpetuated the cycle and made it a 12hr excruciatingly painful long book. In this romance book lovers opinion, Book 1 of "This Man" is not worth a credit nor any amount of $.

    "Couldn't even make it all the way through this one"

    Isn't that terrible? That I review a book that I couldn't even finish listening all the way through?!
    Well I am :)
    Just a snip it of a review though... Promise! I won't hoot and holler about the performance or so,so writing.
    I'll just say it wasn't what I expected and wasn't for me.
    That sounds classier, right? =)

    As for you- I would risk my credit on this one. They are too precious to waste.

    "Snoozefest"

    No actual content in this book. Honestly I did not get through the first few chapters. I couldn't even make it to a juicy part.

    Story
    "Emotional and Entertaining"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is a "page turner" and hard to put down. The story is eventful and unpredictable. It is an emotional roller coaster and totally entertaining.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sam. He's a breath of fresh air who is involved in the same things as Jessi, but is honest and fun-loving which works well for him. He's a supportive friend.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Did not have one, but loved it when Jessi was busted in his office. You think he'd learn.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My main reaction was Jessi needs to be without a significant other. Ava's need to run away and deny reality as well as her avoidance tendencies drove me bonkers.Also, Jessi being totally full of crap tugged at my emotions in different ways. All irritations aside, I did root for them throughout the book.


    Any additional comments?

    If you likes the Crossfire series or 50 Shades series, you will like this. It is a bit different, but the concept is similar.

    "Loved the reader, disliked the story"
    Any additional comments?

    I thought the reader was great but this book was way, way too long and I just couldn't finish it in spite of a great performance by the reader. The story didn't really go anywhere and the characters were so annoying--she was ninny and he was beyond crazy and controlling. I didn't find any reason to continue after nearly 10 hours with 7 hours to to go--in part 1!!! This book needs editing and probably rewriting but even that might not save it.

    I guess after listening to Other such series of the same, this seems slow and redundant.

    "FRUSTRATING !!"

    The story appeared to have alot of background, however, after thinking it would be revealed at the next chapter, it never was. It just frustrated me, and Jessie was so (to much) dominating, his secrets were kept for you to wonder "why".....I would not have gone on to book 2 if I hadn't already purchased it.
