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.

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.
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.
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!!
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.
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!
No story except SEX.
Come to a storyline before 20hour into this.....give me something.
I couldn't stand the narrator... if there was someone else then I would be willing to give it a try.
The book could have been much shorter and it seemed as though unnecessary details were added in to increase the length.
The narrator ruined the book for me... it was horrible....
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.
