Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Move over Grey!"

    one of those you can't put down! I totally think my friend Jessica for turning me on to this series puts 50 Shades of Grey to shame!

    Story
    "Ava needs a slap."

    I haven't wanted to slap a a character so bad before. There is a point were is control of her stop being hot. She was stupid and her best friend has no loyalty to her in my opinion. I didn't care about any of the characters because they were all annoying.

    Story
    "Migraine Inducing Dribble of a Story"

    This book is repetitive and unnecessary. Ava constantly went between orgasms and indecisiveness. Jesse was domineering and powerful, but lacked depth beyond the sex scenes. It felt like they were high schoolers, just drama for drama's sake. I gave up 9hrs, 21minutes in because I couldn't take it anymore.

    You'll like this book if you are into emotionally unstable people and relationships. You'll especially like it if you are okay with emotionally unstable characters that show no growth. They just accept things the way they are or just run away and ignore each other. Honestly, Ava is passive about Jesse being too controlling and his relationship with Sarah, but doesn't say anything. Jesse just stalks her until she gives in and has sex with him. Jesus, that's so alarming.

    There's nothing wrong with submissive storylines, but this book was a deeply infuriating rollercoaster.

    Story
    "Jodi Ellen doesn't disappoint..."

    This is the first book I read that was along the lines of "This Man". It was extremely intense, provocative, sensuous, erotic & libidinous. I was hook from the first time Ava saw Jesse. I had to finish the book immediately. I have read it numerous times & own the Audible version so I can listen as often as I wish. As I said the book is intense & it is Jesse that makes it so. I don't want to give anything away but it is a great beginning of a story of a couple exploring eachother intimately.

    Since I am reviewing the Audible version (I reviewed the book on 2013), I do want to say that Edita Brychta is excellent. Her silky smooth voice lends a great sensuality to the story. One I couldn't find while reading. And I LOVE that she didn't change up her voice for the various parts. She made it very obvious which character was speaking.

    The story does end on cliffhanger which I don't mind. I know many readers don't like it so be warned. But I'm here to tell you it's so worth it. Jodi Ellen, Ava & Jesse do not disappoint.

    Story
    "This Man will make you want him!"
    Would you listen to This Man again? Why?

    This is such a great story and I would listen to it again in a heartbeat! The characters are so wonderful and the narrator is really good at telling the story.


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

    When Eva finally gives in to Jesse for the first time you could feel the tension finally release between the two. The chemistry between them literally made me stop what I was doing to listen until the scene was over!


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

    Edita Brychta is fantastic at bringing the characters to life...even the men in the story. She puts so much emotion into every scene in the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Eva finally finds out the truth about "The Manor", the events that follow are so dramatic and emotionally draining on all the characters that you really feel it.


    Any additional comments?

    I am already enjoying the sequel! Can't wait to listen to the third one as well!

    Story
    "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.
