Named one of "The 20 Greatest Ever Romance Novels According to Goodreads Reviews" by O, The Oprah Magazine
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.

I loved it!!
Awful and frustrating
Never had I read a book that infuriates me to the point that I'm yelling at the heroine to run an run fast and don't look back until this one. The hero in this book is a bully and a stalker. This is not a romance book is a domestic abuse book. Anybody who says this book is great should really have their head examined this book is disturbing on so many levels and no one should ever be treated this way it's not ok.
The Best, ever!!!
I read this trilogy twice in a row and am tempted to read it all over again! That's how good it is, it never gets old. I can't really compare it to 50 Shades because I haven't fully read the first book... now that has to say something: 50 Shades bores me, while This Man still excites me even after reading it twice. And, I have a feeling that I would be greatly disappointed on any book that I will ever have to read from now on. Jodi did an awesome job with the story and her ways were really commendable for a first time writer! One thing I am looking forward to, though... And that is Jesse's POV!!! Now that would be really really bloody great! 😁😄 I have read a small snippets on Jesse's pov on Jodi's website/blog... But I'm still craving for more. Overall, if I still haven't clarified it with all of what I've said, this trilogy will simply blow your mind, and knickers. Hahahaha!
