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.

    "Strongly Intense Read"
    Would you listen to This Man again? Why?

    This Man is going to be listened to many times. The story is one that draws you in and make you hear more.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of This Man?

    Three, Two, One, Zero Baby!!


    What does Edita Brychta bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Being able to listen to the story while I'm working or driving allows me to finish it in half of the time that it took me to read the book.


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

    There is no way I could listen to it in one sitting as it is 19 hours long, but I would love to be able to do it.

    "I tried, I really tried!!"
    How could the performance have been better?

    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.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Not even close to being realistic or believable, I rolled my eyes more in this book than I ever have before.

    Well it's actually not Dan. It's his wife who can't figure out how to change that on the profile. But I love to read and listen to books.

    "Central Jesse Cloud 9"

    If you don't like alpha male characters who's actions don't always make sense because they are head over heels in love, then don't bother. I don't get any negative reviews. His bossy erratic behavior is so beautifully explained as the series progresses. This is one of my very most treasured series. There are some hard parts to get through to see the wonderful on the other side. Please give this fabulous book a try. Jodi Ellen Malpos writes like you are their breathing right along with the characters. The audible (British accent yeah!) was perfect. Both Jesse and Ava's voice spot on. Not to mention Big John and more. Again take a chance and fall in love with Jesse and Ava!!

    "Terrible book"

    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.

    "Best book of my life"

    This is such an awesome trilogy. I saw myself in both lead characters and saw it is okay to live with such passion.

    "Great read"

    Well written, great narration, and all around great and angst filled romantic drama. And I do mean drama. I hate how things ended up for Jessie and Ava, but I know it will be ok. On to the best book.
