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.

im not sure how i feel about this book..the resemblance to fifty is irritating,but I cant seem to stop listening..I want to know where this relationship goes,even if it is unhealthy.
this book is romance and funny at the same time.
How they could not say away from each other.
I laugh my head off! A most buy!
I can not wait to the next book.
So far, up to 6 friends and facebook (200+) friends.
Almost, ' fifty shades' but feeling the power of estacy and lust.
How safe and quiet your life really is, meaning Ava not going w/her gut feeling but expressing it later
Yes, I woke up wanting more and late at night
Books books books
Never listened to her before but she is fantastic
I must admit Both main characters got on my nerves but I loved them as if I knew them. I kinda secretly wish I had a Jesse Ward. book 2 here I come
I thinks some one who wants to read the same plot, as many of the books in this genre, and who wants many sex scenes without real dialogue between the two main character would enjoy this book.
I would have liked more character development.
This is the way the book goes: girl see extremely sexy man, girl debuts having sex with the man who must absolutely have her at no cost (repeat three times), then she has sex with him and of course it is the best sex she has ever had in her entire life and she feels a connection with him, including sparks (literally). Then she breaks up with him, he hunts pursues her, she has sex with him again, and repeat this saga over and over and over. I have stopped listening at about 6 hours because it just on repeat mode.
British, do not like her male accents all that much, but not bad. I would purchase another book if she were the narrater.
I feel like asking for my credit back. I will not be listening to the other books.
Bookstore hobby-jobber, mom, gardener and former copywriter. Eclectic taste in books and audits.
I loved the Brit-wit in this book but was appalled that this wasn't a stand-alone book. A decent editor and a savvy publisher would've distilled a worthy story into one book instead of three! What happened to choosing the value of a a great story into a great bottom line? The amazon reviews saved me from installment 2 and 3. Again, they suffer a lack of a critical eye. I am done with overwritten trilogies and E.L. Wannabes! Every employee at Random House (shipping, janitors) received a $5,000 bonus at year end 2012 because of the success of 50 shades. A formula was born and we, the readers, are paying for it literally and figuratively. This is not fine art.
Just a simple girl living the simple life. Nothing is complicated when the power of imagination leads the way. Close your eyes & just listen
A cheesy wanna-be to Fifty Shades possibly, but nowhere close in my opinion. If all you want is sex with no substance of story then dive right in. I could only go as far as three or four chapters. Narration was good .
All business but contemporary fun!
Absolutely. I have to admit that it started off in a very weird encounter between Ava and Jesse, but if you just ... roll your eyes... and continue reading... It will be worth it! Very much recommend this book!
She narrated it phenomenally. Really like her british accent and the tones used when Jesse was angry. She conveyed him angry yet .. human.. and not insensitive... which is a tricky balance. Well done.
I laughed so hard when Jesse gave Ava the countdown outside the hospital... Hilarious game playing!
Yes. I really enjoyed Jesse's passion, and the intense chemistry between him and Ava.
Another review I read said it reminded them of Fifty Shades of Grey Series, which I loved. There were some similarities in each character's behavior, but I think Jesse and Ava's chemistry is even more than Christian and Anna's....I didn't think it was possible.
I have never listened to any, but I would again without a second thought. You could really get a sense of how each character was feeling through her narration.
I waited to download this series until the third one came out. Then I downloaded to listen while on vacation...I have 3 days left until I leave and I just finished the first book...Likely will be done the second before I leave....its a good...addictive listen.
