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.

People who might be into a very abusive and manipulative relationship.
It's was repetitive and boring.
Her male voice was terrible.
All of them.
I want my credit back.
I tried to push through book two and continue to have the same.issue.
Tell us about yourself!
I am not a newbie when it comes to Alpha males, but honestly ..Mr.Jesse Ward takes the immature cake as well as the Heroine . I do enjoy strong characters, intense sex scenes and mystery in novels. However I cannot tolerate the immaturity in this story. So disappointed in this..considering the hype behind it. Narration was good, accent and character voice distingtion was well done. Too bad the story didn't fare as well.
It was tough to get through this book and I think it had to do with the fact that it felt like it was on repeat. I also did not care for the ending.
A better narrator would have improved it-I definitely couldn't get into the story with the male voice performances. I tried four different times to listen to this book over several month period and still couldn't get through the whole thing.
Not even close to being realistic or believable, I rolled my eyes more in this book than I ever have before.
I'm not a harsh critic and normally enjoy light erotic romance but this book was just so bad. There are plenty of sex scenes which were described in detail but there was not enough love story to make them fun. The dialogue was irritating especially all the discussion during sex about coordinating simultaneous climaxes. The narrators voice has a pleasant British accent. This book does not compare to Fifty Shades.
No story except SEX.
Come to a storyline before 20hour into this.....give me something.
Love Dystopian novels, Romance and Murder Mysteries!
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.
i love to listen!
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.
The best way to read.
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.
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.
Did not have one, but loved it when Jessi was busted in his office. You think he'd learn.
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.
If you likes the Crossfire series or 50 Shades series, you will like this. It is a bit different, but the concept is similar.
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.
