Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor.

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.

    "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.

    "Outstanding!"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was totally HOT! I bought the book to read along with the audio book but was disappointed to see that they were not the same. There were things in the book that were not in the audio book and vice verse. The story totally rocked though!

    Story
    "horrible narriation on a book that was decent"
    Would you try another book from Jodi Ellen Malpas and/or Edita Brychta?

    I couldn't stand the narrator... if there was someone else then I would be willing to give it a try.


    What was most disappointing about Jodi Ellen Malpas’s story?

    The book could have been much shorter and it seemed as though unnecessary details were added in to increase the length.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Edita Brychta?

    The narrator ruined the book for me... it was horrible....


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The storyline was just ok for me. It was the typical dominant arrogant rich man who pretty much "preys" on willing naïve female who works for him.
