This Man: This Man Trilogy, Book 1

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 wish for This Man!"

    W.O.W. This is the fist book of three telling the story of This Man - Jesse Ward. His lady - Ava is a young interior design professional who comes to Jesse's business for some work. What she finds is a gorgeous, intimidating, tormented, overbearing, control freak who sets his sites on making Ava his. He maneuvers himself into her life by purchasing her latest project and their instant insatiable attraction is quite steamy. The story has the perfect balance of shock, awwww and what the? It's a fun loving and super sexy ride as the complicated character of Jesse unfolds before the innocent Ava. I truly enjoyed all three of these books and what makes them extra special is the narrator - Edita Brychta is FABULOUS! Hold on to your nickers, this one has some good twists and turns.

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

    Story
    "An enjoyable romp!"
    What made the experience of listening to This Man the most enjoyable?

    The narrator, Edita Brychta was amazing!


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The chemistry between Ava and Jesse was almost palpable. Jesse's overbearing and controlling nature did push the limits at times.


    What about Edita Brychta’s performance did you like?

    The subtle changes of voice for changes in character made for a very enjoyable listen. Her voice is beautiful and her narration style are amazing. I found my self listening to another book and wishing she were the narrator. On par with the amazing Davina Porter.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    This made my daily drive much more enjoyable. It was a fun listen and made me want to purchase the entire series.

    A little repetitive but good. I couldn't wait for the second part. Definitely a page turner and one I'll go back to again and again.

    "I'm sure I would love the story, hate the voice!"
    What disappointed you about This Man?

    I simply could not get into the story because of the grating voice of the narrator.

    "The voice of the reader is WAY too old"
    Any additional comments?

    The book says she is 26, the reader is clearly in her 40's. it makes it hard to see things in my mind how they were to be intended when the reader is clearly older.

    Story
    "Couldn't wait to listen after work or before work!"
    Where does This Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's not so much the details of a long love story in comparison to other great authors. The setting actually spans little time, but if you start this one and you're not afraid of racy moments and the obsessions often spoken only in the minds of those fearful of falling in love, you WILL NOT put this one down.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I suppose I simply loved the drive that pulls us toward that crazy thing called love.


    What about Edita Brychta’s performance did you like?

    Some books are butchered by the reader. This one is a smooth fit to this magnetic love affair. I've quit listening to books I thought I'd rather read than hear in one of "those" voices, but Brychta's performance just had you repeating some lines from the book because you liked the ring of it in your ear.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Most assuredly this is a book you can't put down and somehow dread when the end comes because you feel you want more of it.


    Any additional comments?

    I probably said enough...I ended 'This Man' only to race to audible to purchase the next one 'Beneath This Man'.
