Book 2 of the #1 New York Times bestselling This Man trilogy.
Jesse Ward drowned her with his intensity and blindsided her with his passion, but he kept her away from his dark secrets and broken soul. Leaving him was the only way Ava O'Shea could survive. She should have known that Jesse Ward is impossible to escape--and now he's back in her life, determined to remind her of the sensual pleasures they had shared. Ava is equally determined to get at the truth beneath this man's steely exterior. That means letting herself get close to the Lord of the Manor once more. And it's exactly where Jesse wants her--within touching distance...
Never a dull moment
Such an addictive read. In this book, secrets were revealed and shocking events happened. This is the type of book that makes you want to read all day.
Not enough focus on the story
Too much focus on sex and not enough on the story. Liked the characters though. I don’t think I will read on in the series. I loved the other One Night series and could not put it down!
This book is one of the worst books I have read in a long time. I always finish a series once I start, it's a rule of mine, but this book made me so sick that I could finish he last. While the first was sweet and intriguing (even if it did follow the plot to 50 shades a little) the second book took it too far in a bad way. The author makes the main character, Jesse out to be protective and romantic as well as caring and sweet, however if you take a step back and really look at his actions they are manipulative, deceptive, controlling and most of all emotionally and mentally ABUSIVE. The way he bulldozes all of Ave's wishes and makes her do whatever he wants isn't romantic in any way, it's horrible. He forces her to move in with him against her will, rips apart a dress she paid for and worst of all bullies her into marrying him. Jesse does not love ave, if he did he would show her some respect and consideration for her own feelings. No, Jesse looks at Ave like an object that he wants to conquer and can use at his own will. This is not romantic and if you find it sweet, you have a seriously unhealthy view on relationships.
