Publisher's Summary

The stunning conclusion to the This Man Trilogy is a number-one New York Times best seller!

The Manor, the very place where their passionate love affair began, fills with guests on what should be the happiest day of Ava and Jesse's lives. She has accepted that she'll never tame the fierceness in Jesse - and she doesn't want to. Their love is profound, their connection powerful, but just when she thinks that she's finally gotten beneath his guarded exterior, more questions arise, leading Ava to believe that Jesse Ward may not be the man she thinks he is. He knows too well how to take her to a place beyond ecstasy…but will he also drive her to the brink of despair? It's time for this man to confess.

    Story
    "one of the best erotic romance trilogy EVER!"

    First, I really think the narrator did a fantastic job with these books! This is the final installment in this series and what a crazy wild ride!! I've been looking forward to losing myself once again in Jesse & Ava’s sexy world and it absolutely did not disappoint. For me, this erotic romance trilogy stands above ALL others. This Man Confessed was everything I was hoping for!! This was a lengthy book but perfectly paced. This Man Confessed is not without the shock and awe that we also experience in the two prior books. It’s truly a wild, bumpy and emotional ride loaded with intrigue and shockers, undiluted lust and mind-bending sex plus a compulsive and intense love. Be prepared to be swept away by their story! So yes, this book is HOT! If you loved Jesse Ward in This Man or Beneath This Man, I will be astounded if you don't fall fan-crazy in love with him more in This Man Confessed. He truly is all pure, sexy, unadulterated alpha! All the Jesse secrets come out and new conflicts arise in their relationship. Rest assured, you will have a VERY difficult time putting this book down. When I was finished with this book, I felt completely satisfied. I had no unanswered questions, the epilogue was perfection. I am a little sad that Jesse and Ava’s story is over, but I was so happy with how it ended. This is one of my favorite trilogies. It’s intense, beautiful, emotional and full of drama! Obviously don't listen to this book if you haven't tackled the other two first, but if you love over the top crazy possessive alpha men with dark pasts who fall in love with a woman who tries them at every turn even though she's madly in love with him & fight multiple obstacles together, this is totally the series for you.

    Story
    "I'm Totally On Central Jesse Cloud Nine!"

    Everything comes out in this final installment of Jesse's and Ava's emotional roller coaster of a love story, and it's a DOOSIE! After gorging myself on books 1 and 2, I couldn't wait until book 3 was released. This trilogy is like one of those 1000-page books you read during a vacation when nothing else demands your attention. It's truly one of my favorite love stories by far.

    The third story was pretty dramatic from start to finish. It's complicated, emotional, and was sometimes a bit frustrating when what seems like a never ending chorus of dirty little skeletons in Jesse's closet come out in a thoroughly dramatic manner. With my Jesse obsession, my addiction to Edita Brychta's narration, and the need for Ava and Jesse to find happiness, this third installment was all-consuming for me! The hotness factor was definitely present, but, there was a lot of pure romance and love that permeated the third book causing me to swoon throughout. I didn't want it to end, and so I'd be happy to take a repeat trip to 'Central Jesse Cloud Nine' any time!

    I highly recommend this book, but, start from the beginning, all three stories are a must, and are definitely credit worthy.

    Story
    "Redmption!! (Spoiler Alert)"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The book is emotional and has a bit of mystery. The relationships are complex. There are many surprises. The dust settles and everyone is still alive, in love and doing the right thing. Well, there is some excitement in between.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Life seems to slow down for many characters and lessons are learned. It becomes Jessi and Ava against the world instead of Ava vs. Jessi. The whole truth about Jessi's past finally comes out and many of his behaviors are explained. If he'd only said so in the first place...silly man.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Ava sent Coral packing. When Jessi and Ava write all over his "Ava wall"...and more...don't want to be a spoiler.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "S'all good girl."


    Any additional comments?

    This book is part of a trilogy and is much better if you read "This Man" and "Beneath This Man" first or some of this book won't make sense. Both characters are difficult people but they love each other...however, trust is another issue.

    Story
    "Oh the drama, but I loved it!"

    Much like the other 2 books, this one was all sorts of crazy! There was so much drama that it made my head spin. And Jesse "The Lord of the Manor" Ward is the craziest man ever! And of course that just added to all the drama. Although I'm glad we got answers in this book, I still didn't think it justified all of Jesse's actions. However, the story was alot of fun and I enjoyed the epilogue so much. It was very funny! This was a great ending to one hot mess of a couple.

    4.5 stars for an enjoyable listen.

    Story
    "One of the best romance trilogies I ever read"

    In this third book of the "This Man" series the story of Jesse and Kate's super-hot attraction and challenging relationship continues to unfold like the layers of an onion peeling back. Yes, this book has even more revelations about Jesse's complex, difficult past, but each one is part of the reason this incredibly erotic love story can be more than lustful fairy tale. One cannot help but fall in love with both main characters. They are clearly gorgeous (the "god" and the "temptress") and interesting, yet their genuine humanity is helps us to identify with them. While their story is so full of extremes in plot twists and odd characters that it is hardly a "normal" life, on an emotional level it is strangely like our own stories of working out the difficulties in loving ourselves and each other. A wide range of supporting characters - including friends, family and surprising villains - keeps the story rich and interesting. The narrator does such a wonderful job of rendering the voices that we feel we know these people as they laugh at their own jokes, frustrate each other or cry out from emotional depths. Even if erotica is not your favorite read, stick with this one. It is tastefully and even beautifully done. More than just gratuitous and titillating, the sex is actually part of the plot. Every moment of "shock and awe," or "sleepy sex" or even frightening jealousy helps build a story about the redemptive power of love. Jesse's voice narrating us the "epilogue" of the story is touching and totally believable and adorable. Absolutely credit-worthy but be sure to read in order for maximum effect (though each could stand alone).

    Any additional comments?

    This has been the best listen I have had sence I started with Audiable. Jodie is a brilliant writer with talent galore. I'm so thankful she didn't let anything stop her from writing. Edita Brychta is a great narrator. The voice changing, and all the expression and emotions Jodie put into her book Edita did a Excellent Job with it all.
    More Jodie Ellen Malpas PLEASE!!!!

    "SIMPLY THE BEST ENDING TO AN EPIC TRILOGY"

    For those of you who have listened to the previous two books in the series then hold on to your seats because you're in for an intense, stunning, emotional ride (which I'm not going to give any spoilers away) and for anyone who hasn't yet listened to any of them then don't start here because you'll be missing an awesome, passionate, all consuming, romantic trilogy that'll quite simply blow you socks off.

    Well they're back.... Jesse's still Lord of the Manor, he's possessive, demanding, overbearing, bossy, protective and so in love with Ava it hurts (and I love love love him) but he's also terrified he's going to lose her and that makes him so vulnerable it hurts. Ava's still on Cloud 9 Jesse but ahead is a heartbreaking decision, a dilemma to face and Jesse's skeletons just keep coming out to test their love. They're constantly adding to their sleepy sex, hard sex, morning sex, twilight sex... etc., which is, of course, delicious but they're growing as people, they're learning what the other needs and trying to give it. But...

    There is sooo very many hurdles to overcome as, chapter by chapter they're slowly painfully revealed and they'll have you gasping, pulling your hair out, crying, screaming, swooning and smiling so much so that your nearest n dearest will be tempted to call for the men in white with a straight jacket just for you. There's so many plot twist, surprises, secrets, new characters, threats and suspense, danger and tension along with their passionate heart-achingly beautiful and drama filled love, that you'll feel like the ball in a pinball machine.

    This well-written, well narrated listen will woo you, WOW you, frustrate you, shock you, captivate you and totally mesmerise you but it'll also sweep you off your feet with their tender, sweet, brutal, passionate, hurtful, touching but unconditional love that you're left emotionally drained, exhausted, sad it's over and so blissfully, mindblowingly contented at the outcome of their HEA. To top it all off the Epilogue is told from Jesse's POV and NEVER has there been a sweeter ending.

    Worth a credit? When you invest so many listening hours to a trilogy you come to love the characters, feel for them, bleed with them and you know that they will haunt your thoughts and you know you're going to miss them so, worth a credit?, HELL YEAH a 10 Star listen.

    "The voice of Jesse will make you melt!"

    I loved this trilogy! The narration was hot, sexy and beautiful and really made the book a wonderful listen. I had a smile on my face the whole time I listened. The story was interesting from beginning to end. The sex was drool-worthy!!!!! but loving and tasteful too for erotica. When I can picture characters and scenery in my head, I know the story has been well written and This Man trilogy was!

    "A pleasant surprise - best of the trilogy"

    I thought this series had a little bit of Shades of Gray Wanna Be - but it continued to surprise me throughout - Jesse and Ava were both all over the place emotionally (Ava more than Jesse) Jesse was just Jesse in alot of ways from the beginning - both were spoiled and beautiful, but ended up loving each other more than themselves which is a must for me - This book was the best of the Trilogy and tugged my heartstrings more than once - while I thought the narration started off shaky, I believe in giving each narrator a real shot and Edita Brychta pulled it off.

    "I need more"
    Would you consider the audio edition of This Man Confessed to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the printed version so I don't know


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jesse.... I love a man who has that take charge vibe but knows when to back off.


    Have you listened to any of Edita Brychta’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I really don't pay attention to who the voice is unless they put me to sleep.


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

    Yes, it had me crying, laughing and wanting to just be there. I really loved this book. Was sad to see it end.
