Review for This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas
Young interior designer Ava O’Shea has an appointment for a first consultation at The Manor with the owner, Mr Jesse Ward. She is expecting nothing more than an overweight, cravat wearing, well-to-do countryman, and on arrival, nothing would suggest otherwise. How wrong could she be? This Man is devastatingly handsome, charming and confident. He is also a conceited, hedonistic playboy, who knows no boundaries. Ava desperately does not want to be attracted to him, but she can’t control the overwhelming affect he has on her. Every instinct is telling her to run, so she does, but Jesse Ward is not so willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her. She knows she is heading for heartbreak, but how can she run when he won’t let her?
I have to say this has been one of the first books I’ve read in a while that has made me really want to just keep flipping the pages.. What is The Manor? What is the Scar from? How Old is Jessie? There is so many things that kept me flipping page to page but without giving too much away, it’s an excellent read.
I love that Eva challenges Jessie. She isn’t always a pushover that lets him have his way. She shows her independence even knowing that Jessie might/will get upset with her. I love a strong heroine who isn’t afraid to push to get her way through the ups and downs of love and a relationship..
Must say sometimes the British terms for things threw me a bit. But not enough that I was put off from it.
CLIFF HANGER.. I will most certainly be picking up book #2 as soon as I can..
Oh and SUPER hot naughty scenes.. Hope #2 includes some of what is hinted at in this book!!
