THIS MAN (Book 1)
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.
BENEATH THIS MAN (Book 2)
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...
THIS MAN CONFESSED (Book 3)
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.
I read several of the reviews and was skeptical about reading the book. Let me tell you, I was very happy I did. I love Jesse and Ava.
This Man... is toxic
Don’t read this series... I thought it would be my typical romance trope because I’ve heard it’s such a good series but... NO. Really dysfunctional relationship and it’s so toxic. They try to save it by the end of the third book with the “explanation” of why the hero is as crazy and misogynistic as he is but it’s not enough. Especially if you have triggers, this relationship is so toxic. I don’t know how this stuff is still being published but seriously, read only is you want an example of a truly dysfunctional relationship.
